No need to watch. Instead, US voters should push the independent media to organize a non-rigged debate between candidates of the US third parties.
Tonight's first US presidential debate involves two candidates who actually depict emphatically the high degree of the US politics degeneration: deeply pro-establishment, war-thirsty Hillary Clinton, against the reserve of the establishment, racist billionaire Donald Trump.
No matter how they act, no matter what they say and what rhetoric they use, they can both be identified, more or less, by the few characteristics above. It would be rather pointless for someone to expect anything better from both.
As we approach the day of the US elections, time is running out and the two candidates will naturally focus on one thing: fix their picture to attract more voters and increase their chances to win. As polls show that it will be a tight race, the two will try to attract as many voters as possible from the huge tank of undecided US citizens.
Hillary took a good taste from the fight for the Democratic nomination against Bernie Sanders. She will probably try to retain a more progressive profile which was forced to exhibit during the race against Bernie, in order to gain voters from the tank of the mass movement he created. She knows that these voters, and especially the American youth, had enough of the neoliberal establishment in previous years, and therefore, it would be very hard to be persuaded that the warmongering Hillary has been "relocated" further to the Left. There is no need to expose her absolute commitment to conduct more dirty wars because the US deep state and the neocons know very well that she will focus on this policy, in case that she will be the next US president. Furthermore, it seems that she does not expect anything from the most conservative voters to the Right, who are clearly determined to support Trump.
Trump has also a difficult job. He has to find a balance between the highly conservative audience, which is the core of his voters, and the more moderate, undecided ones, who may determine the outcome of the elections. Therefore, he is expected to smooth his extremely patriotic (to the point that becomes racist) rhetoric, in order to become "more presidential", as actually warned recently by the establishment. He knows that he can't win without taking a crucial percentage of the more moderate tank.
It appears that after Sanders, the US voters are left with zero options, again. Yet, they do have options which the corporate media don't want to become known. For example, Jill Stein is a good alternative to the US bipartisan establishment. She showed in various appearances in the alternative media that the politics of the Greens can make a real difference and break the ruthless neoliberal establishment that is represented by the US bipartisanism.
It's time for the alternative media to show their rising power against the traditional, corrupted media. They could organize a non-rigged debate with the candidates of the third parties. The momentum of millions of disappointed US citizens, who have chosen to stay out of the political process for years, may then show up, sending shock waves to the establishment. These can make the difference and beat the bipartisanism in the oncoming elections through a political earthquake that would create an unprecedented moment in the US history.
