Southwest Airlines: Withdraw sponsorship of the Commission on Presidential Debates

    1. Nathan Henkel
    2. Petition by

      Nathan Henkel

      New Freedom, PA

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), which is run by the Republican and Democratic parties, has requirements that make it effectively impossible for candidates from other parties to participate in the debates they host, even when those candidates have sufficient ballot access to be able to win the election, as Gary Johnson (L) and Jill Stein (G) do this year. The CPD is unlikely to respond to direct pressure, but may respond to having their sponsorship withdrawn. Southwest Airlines is a sponsor of the CPD this year. Please help us tell Southwest that we want fair debates that present all viable options, not scripted performances presenting only the choices they want us to have.

      Most voters are not aware that minority party candidates are being excluded from the publicly presented privately supported debates.

      You would think that an organization like SWA would support Gary Johnson's effort, when you think back to the the way your Company was unfairly treated by the major airlines. Let us LIVE FREE
