    The debates - worth a read

    The debates are organized not by a "commission," but by the 2 parties themselves agreeing to shut out any opposing opinion. Who makes this so? The corporate and banking lobby which comprises the leadership of each party. This ensures corporatocracy always wins, no matter what. There is collusion by these 2 parties to shut out all other opinions.

    1 in 20 votes is currently going to Gary Johnson. That could be enough to decide certain states.
    The election is a sham unless ALL voices are allowed to be heard.

    In 1984, the cooperation between the Republican and Democratic parties led to a joint veto of almost 100 proposed panelists for the first debate. The following election cycle saw more of a grab for control by the two major parties. The campaigns of George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis met without the knowledge of the League of Women Voters (LWV) and drafted a memorandum of understanding. This secret document specified who would be allowed sit in the audience during the '88 debates and who would serve as panelists, as well as abolished follow-up questions. Under these terms, the LWV would be left to merely host and would have no say in how the debates were held.

    In disgust, the League of Women Voters exposed the memorandum and resigned as hosts of presidential debates, citing the "fraud on the American voter" being carried out by the two major parties [source: PBS]. To fill the void left by the LWV, the Democrats and Republicans formed the joint nonprofit bipartisan organization the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD).

    The election process is already a sham. Its important to control the bewildered herd that the illusion of an actual democratic election remains.
