EPetition on Opening the Presidential Debates

Before Ross Perot won 19 percent of the vote in the 1992 election, the Presidential debates were held by reputable nonpartisian organizations. Afterward the US Government created a commission on presidential debates, and candidates not affiliated with the Democrats and Republicans were shut out. This petition takes aim at the commission, and lobbies for returning to the pre-1992 system. If any political group wants to help sponsor this petition, let us know.

  1. While I admire what you’re trying to do, Lord knows I’ve signed a plethora of similar petitions to open of the Presidential debates. Might I suggest that a more prudent course of action might in fact be to work with Christin Tobin and the Free and Equal Elections Foundation to accomplish this goal? http://freeandequal.org/?v=1 Christina Tobin and the Free and Equal Election foundation hosted a debate in 2012 between Gary Johnson, Virgil Goode, Dr. Jill Stein, and Rocky Anderson that was viewed by over 20 million people around the globe. This June they are hosting the United We Stand event in Arkansas. It will feature speakers like Jesse Ventura, Ralph Nader, and many others. I think it would be prudent to work with the Free and Equal team to accomplish this goal, as they already have taken several steps into the right diretion.
