Two questions. Are we still

Two questions. Are we still bombarding them today? And, have any of you mentioned via phone or e-mail, the legality here (or lack thereof)? They are committing a crime per the IRS (gross) tax code applicable to 501(c)'s by not allowing him in the debates.

Who is in charge

The Commission is headed by Frank Fahrenkopf, a former head of the Republican National Committee, and former White House press secretary Michael D. McCurry.[3] Under the Fahrenkopf's leadership, the CPD established a rule that for a party to be included in the national debates it must garner at least 15% support across five national polls. This rule is considered controversial as most Americans tune in to the televised national debates and hear only the opinions of two parties instead of the 10 or so parties that are actually running for President of the United States.

Hard to get 15% when name isn't on the poll

The most recent Gallup poll never mentioned Gary Johnson or Jill Stein. I think if the candidate has obtained ballot access to 270 electoral votes, they should be included in the debates. There are 4 candidates with ballot access to 270 electoral votes: Obama, Romney, Johnson, and Stein.

The debates are games and rigged like everything else in our elections, which makes them unwatchable for me. I would definitely tune in if all 4 candidates were given equal time.

I called the number

four times throughout the day. Got an answering machine every time. Finally, on the 4th time I left a message. I don't think they want to talk to us. Bastards.

Hey Jesse

The call box is full!!!!

Now why don't you be Gary Johnson's Vice President?

Why not try and get Ralph Nadar's endorsement?

Why not just get RON PAUL to make a public announcement that he will vote for you guys?

Nader Already Endorsed Rocky Anderson

Nader cites him as a strong progressive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d-cY9sCYHM4

And guess what? Romney has also endorsed Rocky Anderson, for mayor of Salt Lake City: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_PQ95wokGlM

Rothbard: "Bipartisan: both parties acting in concert to put both of their hands in your pocket."

Thanks for the number. I WILL be calling these rats.

They are the most rotted organization in the country today.

COMPLETELY against free speech.

It's just too bad the American SHEEPLES don't know that there are OTHER CHOICES OUT THERE.

And that they are so TV-centric that those presidential debates are the only place they get their political input.

But the bottom line is: IF YOU ARE ON THE BALLOT IN EVERY STATE THEN YOU SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN THOSE DEBATES - PERIOD.

Dear Ms. Brown,

Dear Ms. Brown,

I am writing you to express my opinion that our Presidential Debates should be opened to a greater political spectrum than the typical middle left / middle right positions of the Democratic & Republican parties.

Not since the League of Women Voters have we heard from independent or third party candidates such as John Anderson & Ross Perot. After 1992 the bar for being included in the debates has been raised while at the same time the "debates" have become negotiated & highly controlled talking point press conferences. These limited displays have no resemblance to a debate. In addition, the candidates that are showcased do not represent the full range of choices available to American voters. They do not address the majority of topics that are important to citizens or that are critical to our country.

Governor Gary Johnson is confirmed to be on the ballot in 47 states to-date and is working tirelessly to be on the ballot in the remaining 3 that have been contested by the GOP.

The American people have a right to hear the Governor's message and the Libertarian Party perspective. I petition that you include Governor Gary Johnson in the 3 Presidential Debates and that his running mate, Judge James Gray, is included in the Vice Presidential Debate. The choice for President & Vice President belongs to the American people, not the Dem/Rep party duopoly.

Thanks Legalize - I wrote to her and told her...

Any candidate who will be on the ballot of all 50 states should be allowed into those presidential debates - Period.

Good news is that the judge has to rule on GJ inclusion before the first debate that takes place in Denver Oct. 3rd.

here is my email

As you are aware, there are four presidential candidates who have ballot
access to the 270 electoral votes required to win the presidency in
2012. I was told today that all of the televised presidential debates
put on by the Commission on Presidential debates will include only two
of these candidates. Your website states that: "The Commission on
Presidential Debates (CPD) was established in 1987 to ensure that
debates, as a permanent part of every general election, provide the best
possible information to viewers and listeners." It seems to me that
viewers and listeners are not being given the best possible information
when only half the candidates with ballot access to 270 electoral votes
are included in the debates.

By excluding candidates, the debates exclude ideas and information. The
result is a narrow and controlled exchange in the debates that is
frankly uninteresting for me to watch or listen to. Jill Stein and Gary
Johnson have both achieved the very difficult task of obtaining ballot
access. These two candidates also offer policy positions that are
strikingly different to those of the Republican and Democratic
candidates. The debates would be greatly improved by inclusion of all
four candidates. I would definitely watch the debates this year if Jill
Stein and Gary Johnson were included and given equal opportunity to
present their ideas as the Republican and Democrat candidates are
offered. Otherwise, I have to intetion of watching or listening to the
debates. I hope that you are able to reconsider the debate format.

Made a call this a.m!

full voice mail yesterday for

full voice mail yesterday for me, so i called in morning was still full. Called 30 minutes later and i got a voice mail. I left my message, something tells me they do not listen to voice mail and just hit clear everyday. If gary johnson is not in this debate i have to view this debate commission as a criminal enterprise just like the rnc,romney camp and gop est is.

Ron Paul 2016

Can Hollywood save Liberty?

I hope you are well man. I am writing you today to see if you can help further the cause of liberty and stave off facism.

Ron Paul was pretty much robbed of the GOP nomination. I was in Tampa as a delegate and can provide details if needed. But it's not about him it's about the message.

Currently Gary Johnson is on hte ballot in 47 states and litigating to get on in 3 more and DC. He is the Libertarian candidate for President. He has a great Resume much better than his contenders.

Currently he is polling between 5-10% nationally (this is with out the MSM or millions of Dollars) this is a grass roots candidate.

The Presidential Debate are not allowing him in currently. So a Liberty voice will not be heard.

I was told yesterday by a 30 year political activist and consultant that Hollywood gives nearly 30% of all the Money to the Democratic party. And the only way to get Gary Johnson into the debate is to have the Donors Holly wood pressure the Establishement.

Can you do this? It's not a guranteed answer, but it is a good strategy. Jay Leno put Ron Paul on several times maybe he can tell the Commision on Presidential Debates to allow a third voice to be heard.

It's worth a shot. I beg you to consider it and understand if it seems daunting. The alternative I fear is even more daunting however.

Please
Let me know if you have any questions.

From their website

From their website debate.org

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) was established in 1987 to ensure that debates, as a permanent part of every general election, provide the best possible information to viewers and listeners. Its primary purpose is to sponsor and produce debates for the United States presidential and vice presidential candidates and to undertake research and educational activities relating to the debates. The organization, which is a nonprofit, nonpartisan , 501(c)(3) corporation, sponsored all the presidential debates in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008.

Reminded them in a friendly email.

Got Through

Left a message that if Gary Johnson was not allowed to debate, I would not be watching the debate.

No...

Let RON PAUL debate.

I don't play, I commission the league.

No.

Ron Paul is not on the ballot in 47 states and counting.

Ron Paul is not currently running for any office.

This would make Ron Paul a GREAT debate moderator!
