Last Wednesday the first of several Presidential Debates took place in Denver CO. Only two candidates faced off against each other that night — Presidential candidate hopeful Mitt Romney & President Barack H. Obama.

What some of you may have noticed is that there was an element missing from the debates themselves, well actually ... a few elements. The smallest element, and yet most crucial to having a debate at all, missing was that of actual debate. Both speaker seemed to be approaching each question with a attitude of holding back from actually saying what was apparent to the audience given the build up we’ve been getting the past months. This is partially, but not wholly, about how Obama had not raised his voice or interrupted the moderator to the horrendous degree that Romney did due to the stigma PoC here in America face. Clearly, Obama didn’t want to be painted as an angry & LOUD black man, which Hannity implied on his show before the debate.

Next on our check list of missing elements was that of ‘real’ questions. Questions that are prevalent to our time —
† the issue of nuclear stockpiles around the world.
† the epidemic of homelessness across America and it’s causes, such as war.
† the impending disaster that will eventually hit mankind via the current melting of permafrost and glaciers across the globe as well as other climate change effects.
† the war on women's health.
† gun control seems appropriate considering what’s happened in the last few years, this year & where the debate was held. [think Columbine]
† talk of the real solutions to, and truths about, the American backed Israeli occupation of Palestine.

Lastly, the number one thing that was missing from this debate were the three other ‘Third Party’ candidates running for the Presidency that aren’t a part of the Democratic or Republican parties, namely —
† Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party
Rocky Anderson of the Justice Party [who is showing 5% in the polls]
Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party

Now I’m well aware that there are to be more Presidential debates, but I fear they will be more of the same. Even if what I mentioned as material for relevant questions is brought to the podiums, we can be sure we won’t hear much in the way of answers or truth.

But why? Why was all of this missing from what is supposed to be a stimulating and intricate part of the legislative process?

Unfortunately, it was all planed this way. But why? By who?

The Commission of Presidential Debates — a privet corporation funded by Anheuser-Bush, and many other corperations, and controlled by both the Democratic & Republican parties. Yes, you read right. Controlled, with a capitol C.

Apparently the two party system the US has been dominated by for years, though seemingly against each other no matter where you look, TV, radio, online & news papers, were all the while secretly coming together to control the debates.

You might be thinking to yourself that it can’t be all that bad. Yes well, it is.

Prior to 1988 the League of Women Voters were acting as moderators for the events of the Presidential Debates until it withdrew from the position leaving with this statement:

"... the demands of the two campaign organizations would perpetrate a fraud on the American voter."

What fraud were they talking about? After the 1988 Debates the George H.W. Bush and Michael Dukakis campaigns secretly agreed to a "memorandum of understanding" that would decide which candidates could participate in the debates, which individuals would be panelists (and therefore able to ask questions), and the height of the podiums. The League of Women Voters rejected the demands and thus the CPD was born.

I regret to inform every one of you who was debating about who really took the ‘debate’ on Wednesday that indeed ...
