The Path to the White House

Winning the 2020 Election

Ask yourself why you are running and what you could accomplish

Before you Register  & Declare    The possibility of your being elected to the Office of President of the United States depends entirely on you and the decisions you make from this moment until Election Day.  Especially as you read this until January 2020.   
        That said, it can happen if you are the candidate American voters see can ensure the growing problems with government do not impede solutions that take them to a sustainable human economy.  
        In 1992, using primitive forms of 2-Way Interaction, we were able to push Ross Perot to 38%.  Our two other 'official' (read this paying) clients, Jerry Brown and Pat Buchanan, went up at 2 points a day.   

       With this election, all of the past assumptions will go out the window.  Voters will be able to know who you are, what your life says about you, and assess your solutions to the problems which concern them well in advance of the Election.  The day of Pig-In-A-Poke-Politics is ending. 
       You do not have to be the nominee of a major party; we proved that in 1992.  You will not win by running a campaign designed to sell your charm and non-existent empathy, as Bill Clinton did in 1992.  
        You do not have to be a billionaire.  As you will see, billionaires have lost before, despite being decent people and having good ideas.  They have lost so badly you never even heard of them.  
        Read the section below, which will provide you with important information on the steps you need to take.

Essential Facts and Costs

          Your picture and a short bio will appear on the Candidates Page, linked to your Landing Page.  It will take us about 48 hours after you register and pay the fee for this to be ready.  Our experience is that delays generally are caused by the candidate.  You will receive a list of the information, photos, links, and other content we will need to get your  Landing Page ready for use. This provides a web presence and the means for potential supporters and media to contact you.  It also provides videos of your past Debates and any Panels in which you participate, along with your final tallies and links to your Chatroom.  We strongly recommend you provide on your own site the option of uploading files with an email to you from those contacting you, in addition to a Message Box or a request for a donation.  Many potential supporters will pass you by if they cannot communicate with you and receive a reply.   Remember, you have entered the Age of Interaction and it is the technological edge that drives profits and popularity everywhere.  
         The cost for Sign-Up includes payment for your landing page and registration for the Tourney.  This is $3000. 
         As a candidate, you ask for donations.  You know you have to have literature, buttons, business cards, a website, a presence on social media - and you need advertising.  Interactive 2-Way Mass Audience Participant TV from all Platforms for all Devices is the best and most effective form of advertising.  We know you have been told TV is too expensive for you, that it is beyond your reach even if you are a billionaire.  Two decades ago this was true.  No longer.  Technology has moved past previous limits.  And in parallel with other technologies, the prices have dropped.   Don't feel silly, all candidates even the Billionaires, are fighting to be 'included', so they can 'make the cut' and be 'on The Stage' to emote meaningless soundbites. 

       We are different.  We expect substantial content, working solutions to problems, and candor from candidates.    
       Because of the carefully scripted con-job to which you have been subjected, you have likely focused on what does not threaten the Establishment.  Forget that.  Now, you can plan for what you need to provide to get voters to support your candidacy based on practical issues, for instance, what you are doing to do about Climate Change, the economy, and saving the Earth from an asteroid impact. 
      This is exactly what we make available and you do not need to be a Billionaire, not at all.  To debate on DebateTourney, you do not need to be invited by either The Major Parties, which are now, combined, one minority party.  
      More Americans every day are looking for something else.  And you can have the means for connecting with Mass-Audiences with 2-Way communications through ALL platforms and from all devices.  Your party affiliation no longer matters.  You have at your disposal these technologies for 2-Way Interaction with voters they choose instead of what still, laughingly, calls itself the 'mainstream media'.   Their ratings are tiny when you look at the statistics.  One example:  CNN had 157,000 watchers in 2017;  1.1M viewers watched through the CNN phone app.  Fox News has 1.5M viewers on TV but only 300,000 on their phone app.  Equating this to 'mainstream media' is like thinking you are going to the Superbowl and finding a PeeWee football game.  Apologies to Pop Warner.  
      You were sold a bill of goods on both these issues.  The learning curve on this issue has been like watching as a cockroach tries to evolve into a physicist.  Really.  

      Our 1992 Debates would have been available using Satellite TV.  Tallies and asking questions was then available.  This threat to control by the two major parties, then in the hands of President Geo. HW Bush, as the head of the GOP, and Bill Clinton, who managed to be elected on the use of stolen consulting from PhoneVoter, and going behind Brock d'Avignon's back to rent the last Satellite up-link truck available in America, was the reasons the Commission on Presidential Debates was incorporated in 1993.  For the real story see 1993 on PhoneVoter

The Fuel TV Runs on is Advertising
       DebateTourney runs on selling Advertisements to be shown during your debates.  We are arranging to set up our own Advertising Agency now and will be selling ads this month.  If we do this, you make nothing on the ads.  Ad Sales include selling the ads and then sending the information to News Directors.  This vastly and rapidly builds the audience.  If you like, you can have us train one of your staffers to inform News Directors - or we can do this for you. The Ad Agency will make a profit from this, but, if you like, you can do it yourself and keep the profit for your campaign.  They are motivated by getting 15%, which is added on.  Everyone in the Advertising Industry knows this. 
       We know many candidates who have wealthy friends who would run a promotional ad as additional support.  That is your friend's choice.  Ads your supporter runs for their fast-food restaurant should be very welcome.  
          1st Dibs Advertising , PR and Cause Marketing Agency, is our in-house ad agency. 
          The distribution for our TV Shows will be on coast-to-coast Satellite TV and multi-device streaming, with cloud services for audience PhoneVoting,  interactivity, and monetary support for your campaign.   An advantage of satellite TV is that you can notify all network and local TV News Directors that the Debate will occur at a certain time and be available on a certain satellite at which they can aim a receiver dish and have permission to run extracts, of the entire segment, on their news shows.  Cable News Directors will often also pick up this content and run it themselves.     
         Having us make these notifications is an extra cost.  If you share this with your opposing candidate this would be $2,500 each.                   
       We will make Uplink studio arrangements near your home or another site, your preference, at the specified date and time.            Unless you specify otherwise, we look for the least expensive alternative.  These alternatives can now include your SmartPhone.  Our tech partner TheVCC.TV can reliably connect your Smartphone through all platforms and devices to the show.

             Expect a handling fee of 3- 5% for processing Interactive donations or purchases, besides your own costs of fulfillment if these take place on your Debates Landing Page.  Freedom Interactive does not require any referral fee for donations or purchases which take place on your own, external website, even when they arrived there through your landing page.    

Campaign On Satellite

       If you wish us to produce and crew a Campaign On Satellite (COS) for you this is separate and negotiable.  If you do not have your own ad agency you can coordinate production of Interactive Ads for your sponsors with some upfront programming fee and 15% commission on the media buy and/or other gross income from sales.  
       PhoneVoter TV Network handed several presidential candidates in 1992.  This included one candidate who reached 38% and one candidate, receiving hours of counseling, who won.  PhoneVoter 1992
         This is a different kind of campaign, one which gives you rapid feedback, both positive and negative. 

         And as we told Bill Clinton when he was flat broke in March of 1992, people will donate.  

         Now you have the costs.  If you still want to run for president the next step is Registering.  Then, you Declare Your Candidacy.   By law, you are required to file with the Federal Elections Commission, but that is up to you.  Some candidates, on conscience, refuse to file.  We stay out of it.  
         Registration is a simple statement between you and the Debate Tournament Committee for Freedom Interactive TV Networks Association you are asking to be added to the website, have a landing page, and moving to your public Declaration of Candidacy.  We assume this will involve discussions with your Campaign Committee and, perhaps, a public announcement you have Declared your Candidacy.

​           If you have any questions message us and we will respond asap.


After you have Registered use this form to contact us so we can discuss your plans for Declaring, if you have already made these or to explore further possibilities to publicize your campaign.
