What I do NOT wish to see in the 3rd debate..!

I do NOT want to see 10 candidates go after each other. You are all on the same side.! I can't even WATCH those ridiculous things any more because of it.
I wish each candidate would stick to their own position, state what you believe is the best approach and would hope to do.
Don't get suckered in by script readers dressed up as thinking persons(well, a couple are, actually) who want blood because THAT is what sells advertising and THAT is how they get paid the gobs of money they make.

Do I have a favorite? No. Not now...

Good luck and may somebody win......

Whether black, white, Asian, Hispanic, Native American, some mix of those, gay, straight, tall short, old, young, in between..... ANY of them would be a very good president. No question.

Jeeze, can you imaging a republican lineup like that? Me neither !!

2. I agree 10000++++. IMO the moderators often stoke division and often ask lame questions

 

to stoke anger and arguments. They don't want an intelligent debate/discussions ... they want a spectacle to increase viewership and commentaries later. ... it's all about $$$$$'s.

6. someone should get to see the questions in advance.

 

obviously, you cant do this willy nilly, but they at least could stipulate that the hosts not ask gotcha questions.

4. I hate it when a candidate uses the platform to smear the Democratic party.

 

And... because I'm on my mobile device right now, that's all I'll say for now. But, please feel free to explore my DU Journal where I've saved several posts on this exact same subject.

5. Shit stirring mods will do their best

 

But your counsel is very wise. Most people are just tuning in and want to get to know the candidates. Stay positive, tell them why, what and how.

7. If a mod asks about healthcare for undocumented immigrants again, someone

 

needs to unload and take the moderator down for doing trump's bidding. Enough is enough! The future of our democracy is on the line and these networks continue to ask dumb questions for ratings.

10. You're entitled to wish for what you want...

 

...but if candidate A thinks that candidate B's proposal is flawed, I'd rather know that now, than wait for the Republicans to bring the flaw up.

14. I think that could best be done by specifically addressing

 

the flawed proposal and not a flawed opponent. We can decide for ourselves who has which proposal. That way they're dealing with issuse not personalities.

15. And if the moderator asks candidates to "raise your hands if..."

 

...NONE of them should play along.

All that mess was just Chuck Todd's way of forcing the candidates into making sensational headlines by signing on to his poorly worded yes-no questions.
