I wish our debates functioned more like the ones from IQ Squared

They would be so much more useful and productive. I just want to hear the candidates discuss ideas and with each other without some moderators constantly trying to silence them, and without them being framed similar to how we discuss a sports game. Here's their youtube page for those who haven't seen them.

2. That's probably the key issue.

They aren't really debates.

3. This believe this is the wrong place for this post.

I'd self delete and repost in the primaries forum before you get a lock if I were you.
