How about the Vice Presidental debates?

Only two candidates are allowed to participate by the National Commission on Presidential Debates (they call themselves a commission, but that is just to disguise the fact that they are a private corporation created by the Democrats and Republicans and funded by big business interests). Two other candidates, Jill Stein of the Green Party and Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, are on enough ballots to receive 270 Electoral College votes, but the Debate Corporation has created barriers to their participation. The two, corporate owned puppets basically agree on endless wars for private profit; warrantless wiretapping and suppression/incarceration for free speech (NDAA); sustained levels of unemployed; exploitation of our environment and natural resources for private profit at shared expense; ALEC; and the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP); and the guttting of Social Security.... etc. Hear from two candidates who are on about 90% of the ballots who offer alternatives. http://www.democracynow.org/blog/2012/9/28/third_party_candidates_to_join_in_real_time_on_democracy_now_s_live_coverage_of_first_pres_debate
