It's hard to know where to begin but let's just start with the fact that it is way too early for anyone to really know what will happen. But this much is known. Despite what the pundits are reporting or what they are prognosticating, Donald Trump is still leading the Republican pack. And while Carly Fiorina made some significant strides in the second debate, it is questionable that the luster she gained will remain. Why? Because a look at her record reveals that her traditional views don't match with the conservative hype. If anything, she is more of a moderate in the RINO mold as she was when she ran against Barbara Boxer for the Senate in California a few years back. But we'll see.
And then there's Ben Carson, a soft spoken, brilliant and good man, who is now under heat similar to Trump for his statement that a Muslim would not be in his mind good for the Presidency since that religion is not compatible with the Constitution. Frankly, I don't see why the fuss since a review of Muslim views and actions which call for Sharia Law are not compatible with our Law of the Land. But then again, since Trump was criticized without saying a word what should we expect from the press.
It's just crazy the effort the media puts on trying to destroy any politicians who doesn't agree with their agenda while they turn their eyes away from any scrutiny of the Left. So they try to idolize the more moderate among the Republican field, hoping that they will catch fire so that the can destroy them when the general election comes along. Let's face it, folks, there is not now or ever will be a Republican that the main stream media support over a Democrat; there is no unbiased reporting by the mainstream media.
And that brings me to my major point. Does the average American even care what the media thinks? Well, judging from some recent general polls the media ranks near the bottom of the barrel when it comes to trust. And the drop in newspaper and magazine circulation, replaced by the new media (internet blogs and even blog radio) is getting more and more attention by the average America who sees the media for what it is. This is even true to a lesser degree on TV and radio. After all, look around you wherever you live and it becomes obvious that what is being reported by the mainstream media just doesn't match with what we see in our daily lives.
Let's watch this trend during the upcoming election cycle. If it proves to be as important as I think it might it means that Americans are not happy with the status quo. And if that translates into votes as the polls are already saying it might, then we could be looking at a monumental shift in voting patterns in 2016. Keep your eyes open and watch carefully, folks. We're just getting started.
