Last night’s debate was a real proving ground for Republican presidential hopefuls. It was a no holds barred battle of wits. The winner of this round was Ron Paul, the Libertarian Congressman from Texas. Even though he was not asked many questions, what he said counted. Congressman Paul always says what he means, he doesn’t change his answers to suit his audience. He spares no feelings and never compromises his Ideals. When all of the candidates were introduced Ron Paul Ron Paul received the most cheers, while Newt Gingrich received the majority of the boos. I enjoyed this debate, as It addressed some very important issues. Most of the Questions came from online viewers. This was a showdown not to be missed.
One of the first highlights of the evening was when Michele Bachman was asked to answer a question from an audience member of an earlier debate. The question was, “Out of every dollar I earn, how much do I get to keep?”She replied “You earned every dollar, you should keep every dollar.”Then she goes on to mention that he would have to give some of the money to the government to pay to run the country. Of course we Know this is called paying taxes. So this was a real round about way of avoiding the Question that she never really answered. John Huntsman when asked about the economy said that Natural gas subsidies would alleviate the nation’s woes. Herman Cain supports a flat tax that he calls 999, yet gave no details. Mitt Romney Mentioned that the working class needs the most help in the ailing economy.
