Alterna-Debate

You can find our new installment of Mystery Debate Theater here. Go read it now and then come back for a little nibble on some news from our nation's alterna-candidates.

1. ThirdPartyTicket.com Launched: Ron Paul's Money Bomb Architect and Partners Working on Third Party Debate with Twist

On the heels of Congressman Ron Paul's press conference rejecting the corrupt two parties, and his endorsement of four third-party candidate who agree on bringing the U.S. troops home, protecting our civil liberties, investigating the Federal Reserve, and balancing the federal budget, ThirdPartyTicket.com is working to host a debate among third party candidates punctuated by a money bomb, that Trevor Lyman and others are setting up.

The debate will take place on Thursday, October 16th, 2008, from 7 to 9 pm EST, at New York Society for Ethical Culture.

ThirdPartyTicket is inviting all of the major candidates to participate. The Ralph Nader, Chuck Baldwin and Cynthia McKinney campaigns are committed and have sent to their email databases asking them to pledge for the coinciding money bomb. The event will be broadcast via www.BreakTheMatrix.com and many other sites.

About ThirdPartyTicket: The initial Sponsors include www.FreeAndEqual.org, www.OpenDebates.org and www.BreakTheMatrix.com, which is headed up by Trevor Lyman, architect of the Ron Paul money bombs that raised over $14 million dollars.

2. Nader Kicks Off Get-Out-The-Vote Effort in Illinois: Launches Chicago Office and 21 Others Nation-Wide

With four weeks to go until the ballots are counted, Presidential candidate Ralph Nader will open a campaign office in Chicago, Illinois, at 230 E. Ohio Street, this week. As part of its get-out-the-vote effort, the Nader/Gonzales Campaign is adding 22 offices and nearly 50 field-staff staff to its base of thousands of volunteers this week, aiming at securing votes in 49 states. A map of all office locations is available at www.votenader.org.

Recent polls indicate that a growing number of independent voters are moving away from the two parties in the wake of last week's Wall Street bailout. The Wall Street Journal and CNN put Nader's support at 5 and 6 per cent in this third presidential campaign, despite having been excluded from the presidential debates so far. Offices are opening in swing states such as Florida, Colorado, and Pennsylvania, as well as states like Illinois, where Obama is polling at 56 per cent and McCain at 36.
