I am not a fan of what American politics has become. Both our politicians and our media lack integrity.

  1. While there are some good people in politics, I am disgusted at the corruption in both the Republican & Democrat establishments.
  2. The media has stopped reporting news, works to create it to fit their agenda and stifle voices of dissent. I don’t trust them to be honest.

The latest affirmation of how arrogant our media has become was demonstrated in last night’s so-called “debate” hosted by the extreme left “news” organization called CNBC. The CNBC moderators lacked professionalism, exuded arrogance, and revealed their obvious partisan disdain for the Republican candidates. After a series of foolish questions that failed to advance any meaningful debate, Sen. Ted Cruz responded with both truth and clarity.

CNBC knows this content is embarrassing and that is why they tried to block me from putting it on YouTube.  I filed a dispute under Title 17 U.S.C. section 107 of the U.S. Copyright Law which allows citizens to reproduce, distribute or exhibit portions of copyrighted motion pictures or televised programming under certain circumstances without authorization of the copyright holder, but CNBC refused my claim in their effort to silence my free speech.

I applaud Ted Cruz for his words.  Watching the CNBC “moderators” ask these juvenile questions was embarrassing.

There are candidates on this stage I would never vote for, but if there are any worth my vote I need to know where they stand on key issues. But even to the ones I dislike, this is not how any candidate should be treated regardless of party affiliation. These debates are meant for people to watch and get informed about the positions of each candidate… not a vehicle for liberal reporters to attack.

We, the American people, should demand better.

I still plan to vote my conscience and make an informed decision in this next Presidential election in support of our Constitutional Republic, but I have little faith in the system as it exists today.
