POWELL RESPONDS TO INTER-PARTY ATTACKS, DEBATES, CABINET PICKS IN TEXAS, FLORIDA, MISSOURI
"Trump's unnecessary attacks against members of his party do nothing to help him or the country, and it's this kind of childish bickering that wouldn't be unexpected in one of the major parties.
Now, I'm glad to hear the Democratic Party might be seriously considering having an actual debate. It's disgraceful that they originally planned to have none at all, especially in a party that named itself after the concept of Democracy. And if the Democratic Party refuses to have a debate, by God, I'll host it myself. The voters of the United States need to hear from the people they are considering voting for. If that's not bad enough, the CPD's 15% rule designed to shut out third parties is still in place this year. But the threshold for matching funds is 5% of the popular vote. How ridiculous is it that it's easier to secure taxpayer funding than it is to speak to the people? It should be easier to get into the debates, and to let people decide before any matching funds are given.
Additionally, there's the drama with the candidates discussing cabinet picks and VP choices. The fact is, the way things are today will most certainly not be the same way they are on January 20. This is not something that should be rushed to, you are literally entrusting an entire function of our government in someone that you found just weeks after announcing a presidential run."
