Control the debates, control the election.

Control the media coverage, control the election.

If the media is only talking about two options, if pollsters only include two options, and if the debates only showcase two options, the American people are only going to choose between two options, despite the fact that there ARE other options on their ballots.

The only way around that is money.

No other party has enough.

Perot had billions. That wasn't enough.

Americans will only consider a 3rd option if the media treats that option as viable. Americans do not do their own homework or make decisions for themselves. They abide their masters' offering of limited choices, gleefully, and wholeheartedly. They'll even defend the limitation of the choices.
