Tonight is an historic moment in time. The two most wretched, ethically-challenged and unpopular candidates in history will be proposing their vision for America - and both will be ignoring issues that are critical to Americans.
According to USA TODAY, 76% of voters want 4-candidate debates. But the two establishment parties have conspired to exclude their competitors - something the League of Women Voters warned would be “perpetrating a fraud on the American voter.” Let that sink in -- the League of Women Voters is one of the most trusted, truly non-partisan organizations in the country, predicted this moment.
The media wants us focused on the two establishment candidates at Hofstra tonight…
But we want the world to be watching what’s going on outside the official arena.
The 2,000 police will be heavily armed, the fences will be high and the barricades will block us - but we’re going to Occupy the Debates anyway!
And we will be using the open internet and social media to go around the corporate media to broadcast our voices.
We have decided to heed the words of Jello Biafra-- “Don’t hate the corporate media, become the media!” And we will do that outside the doors of Hofstra University tonight.
Deeper still, during the debate itself we will literally insert ourselves into the debate using Twitter/Periscope and Facebook Live.
We aim to have millions of people watching, listening and reading Jill actually participate live during the debate.
The Green Party will not be kept from participating in the Presidential Debates tonight, September 26!
