Two Party Debates in 2016 Will be the Definition of Insanity

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

While I can’t guarantee that if we have open debates in 2016 that there will be a change for the better, if history tells us anything it is that if we don’t have open debates and have to suffer through the two party debate facade again, then we’re at risk at going further into insanity.

The Establishment Has a Way of Getting What it Wants

Open Debates for 2016 will help provide a counter balance to the corrupt ways of the establishment, which has a way of getting what it wants. Meaning if we don’t have open debates then there’s a strong change that the two candidates we’ll be presented with will be hand picked by the establishment. The two party system is a machine and they’ve been working the game for quite  long time. They have plenty of resources and strings to call on and pull to make sure that their interests are served on a priority basis. And this is really the rub. Isn’t it? The interests of the establishment and the big bank money always make sure that they play both sides. This is why things rarely seem to ever change. Newton called this inertia. A body in motion tends to stay in motion. It’s the biggest asset the established powers have going for them, because the only thing that can overcome inertia is momentum and quite simply put, the amount of mass and velocity needed to garnish the momentum needed to overcome their inertia has never materialized. Why? Because the establishment is expert at the art of divide and conquer.

How to Get the Momentum to Overcome the Establishments Intertia

Wikipedia defines coalition as

“A coalition is a pact or treaty among individuals or groups, during which they cooperate in joint action, each in their own self-interest, joining forces together for a common cause.”

Our “Common Cause” is Open Debates. It’s not about global warming. It’s not about healthcare, it’s not about abortion, it’s not about anything other then the need for open debates. We don’t care if you’re a conservative, liberal, pink elephant, or a one legged paper hanger.

Momentum = Mass and Velocity

Uniting behind a single common cause like the need for open debates in 2016, regardless of political affiliation or belief is the only way to build the kind of mass and velocity necessary to overcome the inertia of the establishment and to ensure the 2016 debate season isn’t just a replay of the 2012, or the 2008 debate season. It’s the only way to get diverse opinions. To get the tough questions asked To really nail down where candidates stand on the issues that are important To get the widest range of possible solutions on the table for us all to examine, ponder and then vote on!
