Over 75% of Americans want open debates.
However, the Commission on Presidential Debates, run by former Republican and Democratic party officials, has chosen to exclude Jill Stein from the presidential debates. As we have demonstrated with the previous two debates, this does not stop the Stein/Baraka campaign from speaking truth to power. We have been inserting Jill's responses in each debate and livestreaming it to #BreakTheBlackout. We'll do it again during the third, and final, presidential debate on October 19th.
The Final Debate Showdown
Date: Wednesday, October 19th
Time: 9pm ET (8pm CT, 7pm MT, 6pm PT)
The livestream, which includes Jill's answers to the debate questions, will be posted to Jill's Facebook. Simply watch on your computer, or hook your computer to your television! Jill's 9pm Eastern livestream will include visual/audio of the corporate Clinton/Trump debate, so that you can watch all in one place.
Nationwide, people are hosting watch parties in their homes, at local community centers or at bars/restaurants, viewing together with other supporters and participating online by posting and tweeting. You can do this too! RSVP to our watch party and invite your friends to watch with you!
5 Easy Steps to Host an Epic Watch Party
1) Start a group text chat or email chain -- decide on location, and make sure the internet connection is good.
2) Make it fun! Maybe pizza or cooking with your friends before? Did someone say cookies?!
3) Tune into our FB page promptly as the livestream starts. Are you in progressive FB groups? Make a list now of as many as you can, and have your friends help to post the livestream to as many pages as you can to #BreakTheBlackout
4) Tweet at us live during the livestream, you know we are watching and you won't want to miss our commentary.
5) Play the healthy "drinking" game and donate $5 every time you hear you hear a lie or every time you hear Donald Trump sniffle!
Who said politics can't be fun?
