Are you a political party?A. No.Q.
Who are you?A.
An extremely loose knit collection of Democrats, Republicans, independents, Greens, Reformers, etc.; "average Americans" in other words. Even more precicely, at this particular time, we are a quickly growing blogroll and you are more than welcome to join our blogroll now
What is your agenda?A.
We all have our individual and private agendas. But as a loosely knit alliance, our agenda as a group
, is to simply to pressure the Democrats and Republicans to include 1, 2, or 3, or whatever the "magic number" may be, "outsiders" in their Presidential debates. We see that only a POSITIVE effect can ensue as a result of more voices, with more ideas, more solutions, more challenges being put forth in the current, exclusive, two party Presidential debates.Q:
Is anybody else doing this?A:
Yes, but not bloggers (so far). Check out other bipartisan efforts such as...The Citizen Debate Commission
-* Open Debates *
We have made no official contact with these groups, but should our blogroll grow large enough, perhaps a time will come where we can propose joining forces with groups such as these to effect a positive change in the two party Presidential debates system; a change which will result in a more inclusive, or open system that will allow at least a small number of reasonably intelligent and popular third party candidates to participate and mount a fair challenge for the Presidency.JOIN OUR BLOGROLL NOW
