HELPtheCPD is dedicated to helping the most technologically backward and fortress minded tax-exempt organization in the country get a handle on reality. The Commission on Presidential Debates only releases their mailing address on a 'need to know' basis. They do not accept FedEx or UPS or private messenger deliveries. They do not accept hand delivered messages. They threaten to have you arrested if you enter the massive office building where they have a tiny office. They have never responded to a single email. They have no 'Contact Us' link on their website. They do not have a Facebook page. They do not have a Twitter handle. They never survey their constituents.They are unrepentant. We will win.
The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) was established in 1987 to ensure that debates, as a permanent part of every general election, provide the best possible information to viewers and listeners. Its primary purpose is to sponsor and produce debates for the United States presidential and vice presidential candidates and to undertake research and educational activities relating to the debates. The organization, which is a nonprofit, nonpartisan , 501(c)(3) corporation, sponsored all the presidential debates in 1988, 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008.
The Commission on Presidential Debates is a tax-exempt organization fully accountable to the public they are required to serve. Unfortunately they are incapable and/or unwilling to accept even a modicum of input from anyone who is not within their elite inner circle of power brokers, drawn exclusively from the Republican and Democratic parties.
They have been politely asked, numerous times, to simply open themselves up to receiving input using traditional means such as personal interviews, United States mail, and hand delivery of written messages, as well as modern means such as Facebook and Twitter and on-line surveys of public opinion.
They have unequivocably refused every request, every time. It is clear they are afraid to expose themselves to public opinion. It is unclear why.
