Rather than everyone getting into a religious war, I think we should concentrate on the unfairness of this exclusion, and how it influences the vote.
It brings up the entire issue of how organizations, and the MSM decide who can participate in a debate or forum, or who can be interviewed.
It is rather disconcerting to see that a great number of Americans who intent to vote still have not heard of Ron Paul, what he stands for, or what
the other candidates stand for.
I believe that the internet is the best way to learn about the candidates, the issues, and the impact of their stances on the country, and how such
views will affect each one of you.
Every one of the debates are moderated, and those moderators slant what questions are asked, how they are posed, and how they react to the answers.
Although I'm not a big FoxNews fan, or any of the cable or MSM networks, I have to say that the forum that Huckabee conducted the other night, was
about the fairest one I've seen. Rather than peppering the candidates with slanted questions, each candidate was given EXACTLY the same amount of
time, to explain their views and stances. It would be nice to see more like that, rather than the "gotcha" questions, which in the long run, are
nothing more than ways to make a candidate look bad.
People have to understand that NO candidate is capable, day 1, of assuming the job of President of the US, and handling every issue as an expert. It
is, without a doubt, the toughest job in the world.
Given that, I believe good character, common sense, and the ability to LISTEN to the people, are the major skills a candidate should have.
