Open the Debates!

For the record, this goes for you Ron Paul supporters too.  Ron Paul deserves to debate just as much as Nader, Obama and McCain do.

ACTION ALERT: Help Open the Debates this Thursday, September 25th

The National Day of Action is going to happen across the country tomorrow. Nader/Gonzalez supporters are setting up protests and events in Colorado, California, Vermont, Ohio, Iowa, Arkansas, Wisconsin, Georgia, New York and many other states.

Inform your community that the corporately funded Commission on Presidential Debates discriminates against third party candidates and independents. Visit votenader.org/debates for more information and sample letters.

There’s still time to organize an event in your community and pass out fliers. Check out our new National Day of Action Fliers by clicking here.

Everyone can do something.

    Did you mean Bob Barr? Ron Paul is no longer in the race. 🙂

    Yeah, I just figured that out after the last debate. I keep hearing all these people talk about voting for Ron Paul, plus Ralph Nader did a press conference with him about opening the debates to third party candidates, so I assumed Ron Paul was running as an independent, or something. But then I heard that there’s just a campaign to write him in.
    But yeah, Bob Barr and Cynthia McKinney should totally be at the debates too.
