Debates

Independent news and information on political debates. Discussions include how the debates are rigged, who decides who makes it into the presidential debates, and what organizations are opening the debates.

It is becoming clear that independent voters -- and really voters at large -- are fed up with partisan debates. 

For many, it is the same hour-long discussion on health care every debate. It is the same talking points rehearsed and regurgitated. It is the same attempts at a one-liner that may grab headlines, but does nothing to further the discussion on important issues facing our country. 

Bernie Sanders recently appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience, and the opening discussion was the DNC debate. Rogan asked Sanders if the time constraints during the debates were frustrating to him. He responded by saying they shouldn't be called debates. They should be called reality TV.
