2. Perhaps

 

Perhaps a motivated citizen can use this and other news sources to make an informed choice.

But what about less motivated citizens?

Why should it be hard to hear what candidates have to say?

Are we more in favor of letting money and wherewithal dictate getting to know a candidate, or would it be nice to have the candidate appear on the largest mass media platform we have, preferably free of charge, for maximum distribution.

Why would the DNC so obviously move to restrict information, by limiting debates, by insisting on an exclusivity clause, and by scheduling them at such inopportune times?

I personally cannot imagine a truly good answer, and the people of all kinds who have seen through this to more devious answers are legion.

There should be more debates, in an effort to have all candidates be properly understood. Anything else is a sham. Unfortunately, that reminds many of us about what seems true more universally of the Democratic Party today. Anything that looks like it is standing up for my rights ultimately contributes to some small to large diminishment to me and my life, personal fortune, ultimate future, etc.
