Despite the indisputable fact that the Dead Rights ticket is gaining unprecedented momentum, the Powers that Be continue to refuse to consider allowing two outstanding candidates, Misters Ennis and Slack, to join this year’s presidential debates.
My phone call to the Debate Commission went unanswered. My follow-up e-mail fared no better.
With this in mind and in craw, I chose another route. I sent a letter to the editors of the top 125 newspapers in the land, pleading my reasonable cause. Not one of those papers saw fit to publish it!
I am not one to develop conspiracy theories. Nevertheless, I was beginning to sniff a rodent. It is now my firm belief that the most thoughtful and innovative candidates for the top and near-top political position in the land are being ignored. Why? From fear that the two “leading” candidates are vulnerable, each in his or her own way. The incumbent, who is slowly mastering the intricacies of the Constitution, is also slow in coming up with Plan B. Judging by his fiscal record, the challenger has the earmarks of a gold-hider.
Neither Ab Ennis nor his running mate, Orville Slack IV, can be accused of either of these flaws.
Can this fact explain the refusal of the Debate Commission to allow the Dead Rights candidates entrance into the fray?
Let the reader judge. And, after judging, let the reader inundate the Debate Commission, the DNC, the RNC, the League of Women Voters, the top 125 newspapers in the land, and other Powers that Be with e-missives and phone calls demanding justice.
Voters of the land arise! You have nothing to lose but your time!
