Details

Join the members of NYC Debate (http://www.meetup.com/debateclub-6/) for a "mock" debate between the two of the most compelling candidates from each major political parties, plus a leading third-party candidate from the Libertarian Party.

FORMAT:

• At least three volunteer debate participants needed on each side.

• As part of the "mock" debate format, each debate participants will play the role of Candidate Trump, Candidate Sanders, or Candidate Johnson.

• The spirit of the debate will be centered on a genuine intellectual and oratorical reenactment under a hypothetical General Election Year match-up between these three candidates.

• The debate will be in a "townhall" format, allowing the meetup attendees, as the "townhall audience" members, to directly ask questions to any of the candidates.

TOPICS -- there will be three debate rounds, one for each of the topics below:

Round I: Domestic agenda: the underlying governing principles (e.g., "the role of the government"), cabinet appointments and Supreme Court nominations, immigration, energy, and "social" programs, etc.

Round II: Economic and trade policies; budget priorities, and proposed tax plans.

Round III: Foreign policy / international relations.

We'll also need support volunteers for timekeeping and factchecking.

After the debate, be sure to stick around for the post-debate party (http://www.meetup.com/NYC-Politics/events/229749297/)!
