Republican candidates face off against liberal media

The most recent GOP debate that was televised on CNBC was a disgrace. The candidates were treated beyond unfairly by the moderators of the debate, and it was very hard to watch.

The point of a debate is to ask the candidates questions about topics the American people want to hear about — topics such as immigration, gun laws, taxes and education. But, that did not happen in the last debate.

Republican U.S. presidential candidates (L-R) Governor John Kasich, former Governor Mike Huckabee, former Governor Jeb Bush, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio, businessman Donald Trump, Dr. Ben Carson, former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Chris Christie and U.S. Rep. Rand Paul participate in the 2016 U.S. Republican presidential candidates debate held by CNBC.

The moderators didn’t ask questions of the candidates; instead, they attacked them with accusations. It was very clear the moderators were not being fair. They are liberals who made a foolish attempt to try to make the Republican candidates look dumb when, in fact, they did just the opposite.

Ted Cruz was applauded when he called the moderators out on their game.

“The questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the American people don’t trust the media,” Cruz said. “How about talking about the substantive issues that people care about?”

This hit home with me, as I’m sure it did with many other conservatives who were watching the debate. The media is so consumed by liberals.

For them, the debate was just an opportunity to tear the Republicans apart, but Cruz making the comments he did shows that we Republicans will all stick together for a single purpose — which is to end the liberal takeover that has happened in Washington, D.C.

The front-runners, in my opinion, are Donald Trump, Carly Fiorina and Ben Carson. While I believe all of the candidates did a good job in the debate, these three seem to have the best handle on things.

Being a woman, I feel it is important to give Fiorina her fair chance. In politics, as well as every other field, women are often not given the respect they deserve.

Trump is no longer first in some polls. However, the main reason people give for supporting Trump is that he speaks his mind. He says what everyone else is thinking and is not afraid to speak on controversial issues such as immigration.

Carson is now first in the polls. I believe Carson is one of the smartest men to have ever run for president of the United States. Carson has been so successful in his career as a neurosurgeon, he holds 67 honorary doctorate degrees.

The one thing all three of these people have in common is they aren’t politicians. America doesn’t need more politicians in office. We need smart, successful businessmen who are not afraid to stick up for the citizens of this country and fix the issues that really matter.
