Watch the Green Party Presidential candidates debate on RT America TV or on their YouTube channel: https://www.rt.com/on-air/rt-america-air/ If you are for opening up the debates to more than two party’s then consider signing the Petition to the Commission on Presidential Debates. Please show your support for allowing a more diverse debate perspective to t0elevise third party candidates: http://www.gp.org/petition
“Third parties face an uphill battle on numerous fronts when it comes to gaining national recognition. According to the Green Party, those barriers include “unfair ballot-access rules designed by Democratic and Republican lawmakers to block alternative-party candidates; election coverage by news media that perpetuates the myth that voters have only two choices; exclusion from forums and debates, including the two-candidate charade hosted by the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD).”
The CPD – a private nonprofit corporation jointly run by Democrats and Republicans – requires that candidates must not only appear on a “sufficient number of state ballots” in order to prove their likelihood of winning the majority vote in the Electoral College, but must also attain “15% of the national electorate as determined by five selected national public opinion polling organizations” in order to appear on stage in any post-primary presidential debates.
That doesn’t sit well with millions of Americans tired of choosing between the lesser of two evils to run the country. Not only will RT America offer a third way, but it will give viewers a chance to “question more” and ask candidates the hard questions.
