What to do in the next in the Presidential Debates?
The Chicago Tribune front page article titled, Debate Commission vows changes coming to format, contained this statement.
“It will soon adapt changes to avoid a repeat disjointed…….”
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate two ancient wisdom proverbs to the sad affair we witnessed in the first debate and my suggestion based on what I want to hear in the next meeting of the two candidates.
Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so, drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. (Proverb 17:14)
If a wise man goes to court with a fool, there will be raving and laughing with no resolution. (Proverb 29:9)
What’s My Point?
The debate can be considered a court hearing in a sense and what we witnessed was not a debate but a contest of sorts which stated when the first candidate violated the rules agreed to before the debate.
I explained in a previous post titled: Biden, Trump, Psychological Political Personalities, that both candidates are imperfect humans, same as every human every born.
Plus, it is no secret that news commutators also have biases and opinions about both candidates.
My point is to suggest what I want to hear from both candidates in the next debates rather than what happened in the first debate that was set off when the first candidate violated their agreement not to interrupt.
That first one was Joe Biden which then proceeded to set in motion Trump’s counterattacks which he had demonstrated in the 2016 debates.
In My Opinion,
Instead of biased moderators bringing up questions about what both imperfect human candidates have done in the past, I want to know their plans of what they promise to do in the future including how they intend to pay for what are promising.
Perhaps the moderators should only moderate the time for each candidate to propose their plans for five minutes on each issue, and then give each candidate after both have presented their plans two minutes to explain why they agree or disagree with the other plans presented.
For example, the economy, National Deficit, Job creation, trade imbalances, health care, poverty, education, school vouchers, abortion, immigration, racial injustice, military, foreign affairs, environment, etc.
In other words, the moderators should only moderate the time and not give any opinions because they too are imperfect humans.
