Happy Solstice.  It's [almost] 1996 - election year.

Let's get to work - on becoming *informed* participants in the process of
our own governance.  This GovAccess initiates a new GovAccess thread --
"prexy" -- concerned with an effort to initiate and conduct *modern*
presidential debates (i.e., on the record, *online*) by those who propose
to lead us into the 21st Century.

This outlines the proposal.  Future GovAccess.2xx.prexy issues will give
updates, progress reports and further details -- such as the phone and fax
numbers of the major presidential candidates' campaign managers.

Pushing together, WE can make this happen.  Let's do it!
