Open the Debates 2: Free and Equal Petition PDF Print E-mail

The only threshold for participation should be successfully qualifying for the ballot under the various state election laws. Since the process has been clearly and shamelessly abused, no other threshold can be considered acceptable.

We call on all candidates to accept debates with any and all of their ballot qualified opponents.

We call on the media, debate sponsors, and all those involved in election debates to demand the inclusion of all ballot qualified candidates in debates, forums, political news coverage, and public speaking opportunities. All debates and media coverage of elections should include all choices available to voters.

We call on citizens like YOU to demand accountability from politicians and the media by signing this petition!

The text of the Free and Equal petition follows. Sign it here

We the undersigned:

Believe that any candidate who appears on the ballot is electable, if given fair and equal treatment.

Believe that debate participation is being unfairly and disingenuously restricted by excluding candidates who have qualified to appear on the ballot.

Call on all candidates to accept debates with any and all of their ballot qualified opponents.

Call on the media, debate sponsors, and all those involved in election debates to demand the inclusion of all ballot qualified candidates in debates, forums, political news coverage, and public speaking opportunities. Debates and media coverage of elections should include all the choices available to voters.

Inform you as a candidate or debate sponsor, that if you fail to adhere to the above, you will be excluded in turn when we cast our votes, open our wallets, or give you our attention, as the case may be.
