Where is the Democracy?

 

Stein tweeted that she was on campus to conduct a credentialed interview with MSNBC. She added, "We were immediately escorted off of the Hofstra campus after the press conference just now and told not to do any more press."

Stein has plans to respond to tonight's debate in real time on Twitter and Facebook. The candidate, along with Libertarian Party Candidate Gary Johnson, was not formally invited to the debate because, according to the Commission on Presidential Debates, she failed to garner 15% of likely votes in the polls. Stein has countered that the debates should acknowledge the 50% of Americans who don't identify as either Republican or Democrat.

 

According to Stein's campaign, the candidate is also planning to attempt to enter tonight's debate flanked by her supporters. The campaign could not immediately be reached to confirm if those plans are still on the table.

BOYCOTT THE DEBATES = DISCRIMINATION IS AGAINST THE LAW

 

 

The League of Women Voters held a press conference and lambasted the campaigns for having "totally abused" the process. As a result of the ensuing public outcry, the campaigns accepted all of the League's proposed moderators for the next debate.

 

And in 1988, the George Bush and Michael Dukakis campaigns drafted the first secret debate contract -- a "Memorandum of Understanding" that dictated who could participate and under what conditions. The League of Women Voters refused to implement the contract and issued a blistering press release, stating that "the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter."

 

In 1988, the CPD seized control of the presidential debates from the League and has sponsored every presidential debate since.

 

 

It is precisely because the League had the courage to resist the demands of the major-party candidates that the CPD was created. The Republican and Democratic parties would not tolerate a debate sponsor that insisted on challenging formats or the inclusion of third-party candidates.

 

In 1986, the Democratic National Committee and the Republican National Committee ratified an agreement "for the parties to take over presidential debates." In 1987, the chairs of the Republican and Democratic parties incorporated the CPD. In 1988, the CPD seized control of the presidential debates from the League and has sponsored every presidential debate since.

How in the world can any Bernie supporter vote Hillary Clinton when she represents most everything he is against?

 

And she is throwing Bernie under the bus.
