2016 Presidential Candidates

The year 2016 is just a few days away and we are quickly approaching the 2016 Presidential election. The average American citizen is unaware of who are the contending Presidential candidates other than the two candidates who dominate the media, the republican candidate, Donald Trump and the democratic candidate, Hilary Clinton.

History will always repeat it's self. The presidential candidates focus on what we want to hear and dominate the media without actually answering the important questions. The candidates who are out there on the campaign trail trying to answer the important questions get very little media coverage. The media decides who will get the coverage and who will dominate the race.

The presidential elections are not about who is the best candidate, it is about who can dominate the media. Who is running for President in 2016?

Democratic Presidential Candidates
Hillary Clinton
Martin O'Malley
Bernie Sanders

Republican Presidential Candidates
Jeb Bush
Ben Carson
Chris Christie
Ted Cruz
Carly Fiorina

Jim Gilmore
Mike Huckabee
John Kasich
George Pataki

Rand Paul
Marco Rubio
Rick Santorum
Donald Trump

With access to the world wide web, it baffles me we still depend on the media to tell us who is worth voting for. We are a society that runs to the web for everything, but politics.  I found an interesting website, Inside Gov that allows you to compare the candidates by party and the issues that are relevant to you.

The information about the candidates are at your finger tips. It is time we claim our right as American Citizens to decide who will be the next President of the United States.
