Supporters from around the country have reached out to Free & Equal to host debates in their districts. Free & Equal attempted to host a debate between Congressmember Nancy Pelosi and her only other challenger John Dennis, but the Congressmember declined. Free & Equal will be working on hosting several online debates broadcasted via live YouTube/Google Hangouts.
Jeff Allen, the Chief Operating Officer of the Greater Glendale Chamber of Commerce, stated, ?Everyone says they want more choices rather than just the two party candidates, but the major parties make it so that no one else gets any publicity and they work to exclude anyone else in the debates,? in an article the Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle recently wrote about Free & Equal hosting an open debate for Governor of Colorado on the front page of one of their latest issues.
Open and inclusive public debates are crucial for the political health of our nation.
Open debates help educate the general public about the issues that status quo candidates are unwilling to address: electoral reform, money in politics, the militarization of police, labeling of GMOs, the illegitimacy of the Federal Reserve, and the military industrial complex.
Free and Equal hosted the 2012 Third Party Presidential Debate moderated by broadcast legend Larry King, which aired live on C-SPAN, Al Jazeera, The Free & Equal Network, Link TV, and RT America, seen by tens of millions of people worldwide. The event was top ten trending on Twitter.
