The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) is supposed to be a nonpartisan organization that gives equal, unbiased opportunity to all legitimate presidential candidates. Gary Johnson and Jill Stein were wrongfully excluded from these presidential debates. The CPD does not give third parties a fair chance. When the CPD was first founded, potential candidates only needed to secure 5% of the public vote to be eligible in debates. In 1992, the CPD raised this requirement to 15% after Ross Perot successfully posed a threat as a third party. This is immoral and intentional exclusion. We’re asking the CPD to act like true Americans and end this corrupt censorship.
Third parties force the major parties in power to acknowledge serious issues that are otherwise avoided, ignored, or deflected. They are vital to the democratic system.
Pass this petition along and help advocate for the fair representation of our political parties. You don’t have to be affiliated with a third party; simply become informed, and vote your conscience. Help spread awareness to give America the freedom of choice we deserve.
