View Full Version : Paul's Perfect Debate Format

I'm tired of all the other candidates lying their way through every debate. Especially the bickering amongst them about who's lying or taxing the least.

What I would love to see in the upcoming debates is a new format that involves factcheck.org.

Have several sections in the debates, just like it is at the moment, covering the war and health-care and the economy etc. And every candidate has someone checking what they're saying making sure it's not total bs.

Then after each section the audience get's informed about the facts. Maybe give the candidates 30 secs to respond (ie. tell more lies)

Firstly Ron Paul would dominate in such a format because he never lies. Secondly I believe it's only fair towards the public, it's kinda silly allowing the candidates to make up whatever facts they want on air.

What do you guys think?

Theoretically: not bad.

Realistically: impossible.

My boyfriend suggested this the other day. It would be great if they could do it.
