As you are certainly aware, the Republicans and the Democrats have created an organization called the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) for the purpose of excluding third party and independent candidates from the political process. Every four years, the two major parties negotiate a complex contract which excludes other presidential candidates from the national debates.
This year, the two negotiators for the secret contract were Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Representative Rahm Emanuel (D-IL). In order to protect the the Obama and McCain campaigns from public criticism, the Commission on Presidential Debates has refused to release this back-room contract for public inspection.
In order for your voice to be heard in this important presidential election, it is critical that this contract is made available to the general public before the debates.
Here’s today’s task: Make One Very Important Phone Call!
Get your mind prepared to present a polite but well-worded message.
Call the Commission on Presidential Debates at 202-872-1020.
Please ask the CPD representative (or leave message) to “please make the debate contract between John McCain and Barack Obama available to the public.”
Then ask the representative to please “include Bob Barr in the presidential debates.”
Feel free to provide us some feedback about your calls by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the Republicans and Democrats refuse to allow Bob Barr into the presidential debates, Americans won’t be able to hear the Libertarian message of smaller government and individual liberty. For your voice to be heard, it is crucial that you help Bob out by making this important phone call today.
For Bob Barr and my fellow Libertarians:
I called the Secretive Commission for Presidential Debates and told them to include Bob Barr and the Libertarian Party in the Presidential Debates otherwise they cannot say that they represent freedom. They attempted to cut me off but I closed by saying Republicans and Democrats are dictators who talk about freedom but do not practice it.
