4 responses to Presidential Debate Night – Jill Stein on Democracy Now

  1. I know of at least 20 people that will now watch the debates on DN! that were not going to watch the kabuki infomercial debate. Could be a turning point for third party politics.

  2. We really appriciate an opportunity to hear from ligitimate problem solving oriented candidates, thanks to Amy Goodman. WE WILL BE WATCHING.

  3. I just saw the Democracy Now airing of the FAIR and EXPANDED debate. Jill Stein did well, pointing out all of the things that Obama and Romney managed to keep buried in the “official” debate, like the NDAA bill, the Patriot Act, and Medicare For All. Rocky Anderson’s a decent candidate too, and supports many of the same policies and ideas Jill Stein does. I wonder why he’s not a Green himself…oh well.
    Anyway, the partisan mobs are out in full force on Yahoo right now; I was swimming in a sea of thumbs downs. It’s rough there for third party supporters.

  4. I am a very recent convert to the Green Party. As in just in the last month. I have listened to Jill Stein on the radio, read her policies and think she and the Green Party talk a lot of sense and would make America a better country if given a chance.
    I thought this country was supposed to be about freedom. Yet our government is controlled by a 2 party monopoly who do all in their power to kill off any other voicies and parties that challenge their monopoly and make sure that the American people are prevented from having a choice as to who they will select to represent them.
    The so called preidential debates are a sham, a fraud and an insult to American democracy.
