Debates are the one element of modern campaigns and elections that should be immune to unfair advantages based upon funding and political party structure. Yet, the private Commission on Presidential Debates, created in 1987 by the Democratic and Republican parties, has created a debate duopoly that makes it virtually impossible for candidates other than the Republican and Democrat nominees to participate.  

This exclusion is accomplished by applying criteria for participation -- agreed to between the two "major" parties -- that include a requirement that a candidate be polling at 15% in arbitrarily-selected national surveys. The Our America Initiative believes this requirement to be not only unfair, but illegal.  Any candidate who is 1) qualified to be President under the Constitution and 2) has qualified for enough states' ballots to receive at least 50% of Electoral College votes should be included. Those requirements alone would insure that participation will be limited to only the most serious candidates.

The vast majority of Americans who rely on the nationally-televised Presidential Debates to help make their voting decisions have no idea that the "official" General Election debates are, in fact, productions of a private, nongovernmental organization comprised of representatives of the Democrat and Republican parties who exercise complete and exclusive control over the process.  That is just wrong, and Our America is committed to challenging this political duopoly in the nation's courts. Help fund the lawsuit to make the Presidential Debates fair.
