Sign The Petition To Keep The Debates Open!!
This week the Des Moines Register decided to exclude Congressman Dennis Kucinich from the Iowa debate — despite the fact that he met all of their published criteria.
Senator Mike Gravel and Congressman Ron Paul have also faced debate exclusions as well.
Petition For Democracy
To: Howard Dean, Democratic National Committee Chair
Mike Duncan, Republican National Committee Chair
Chairmans Dean and Duncan,
We are asking for your help to KEEP THE DEBATES OPEN!
Candidates like Dennis Kucinich, Ron Paul, and Mike Gravel have raised important issues in the debates. This type of debate and dialogue is critical to the future of America — even if it riles the party leadership and fellow candidates.
42% of Americans consider themselves independent — and many Democrats and Republicans consider themselves independent-minded — precisely because of these partisan attempts to close down our democratic process.
We need your intervention to keep the presidential primaries competitive – KEEP THE DEBATES OPEN!
