UPDATE: Found an active link => Republican Presidential Debate – 6 August – Fox News
Frankly, I am a bit annoyed the 2016 presidential election is already getting this much airtime. Why? I am supposed to be something of a political junkie, right? Well, here in Virginia we will have elections in 2015 for state and local offices. Shouldn’t we be focusing on that? Instead, we have to study up both for elections in 2015 and 2016.
Keep in mind that among the first tier candidates we have some Conservatives. I think Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Scott Walker, and Senator Ron Paul our best choices. Unfortunately, the corporate news media and our nation’s “elites” have little interest in electing Conservatives.
How does that work?
- The corporate news media will cast smoke bombs over the candidates, clouding their positions and their records. Instead of a serious discussion of the issues and the candidates, they give us a juicy story, “The Donald.” Consider, is Donald Trump a serious candidate or a smoke bomb? Does anyone in the corporate news media think he has a chance of winning? Not likely. Trump polls well. However, because “The Donald’s” also has high negatives, his polling numbers may already be near their maximum. Nevertheless, because of free news coverage and The Donald’s “frankness,” none of the other candidates has had an opportunity to stand out.
- The big money “elites” fund RINOs. The big money “elites” feed off government spending, and RINOs buy their support with our dollars. That leaves Conservatives a difficult task. We must correctly identify the best Conservative candidate and unify behind that candidate as soon as possible. Otherwise, once again we have a dismal choice, voting for a RINO or simply not bothering to vote.
As President Barack Obama has demonstrated, our president can exercise power, including power never authorized by the Constitution. Hence, we must pay attention to 2016 election now. We must closely examine the candidates and choose the genuine article. We cannot rely upon the corporate news media or big donors to choose our candidate for us.
