Why keep Carly Fiorina out of the next Republican debate?

I'm mad as hell, and I'm voting for Carly Fiorina.

The Establishment keeps telling me what to think and whom to vote for.  What do they know?  Whatever they're doing, it's not working, but they have the audacity to keep telling me they know best.  Governor Sununu, you are so 20th century.

Now, now they are telling me that only seven of the remaining eight candidates has a message worth listening to.  They're wrong again!  Carly Fiorina should be in the 6 February debate.

I met Ms. Fiorina at Scott Brown's Backyard No BS Barbeque.  Solid stump speech, responsive answers to questions, and so sweet with the five-year old who sang The Star-Spangled Banner.

Let me run through the list of candidates remaining in the field in roughly the order of the current polling:

Trump - I like the Donald, but he scares me.

Rubio - Smart and glib, but too young and inexperienced.  Another Obama?

Cruz - More mature than Rubio but extremely unlikable.

Kasich - Best résumé, but too left for me.

Bush - Snakebit.  Hasn't recovered from the low energy label.

Christie - Spotty record in a tough state, very likeable.

Carson - Nice guy, very intelligent, but no relevant experience.

Fiorina - Solid positions, knowledgeable, aggressive, and willing to buck the status quo.

Eight candidates. Seven, each with flaws, are on the main stage.  One, Carly Fiorina, whose one flaw is low name recognition, is being penalized by the Establishment.  Carly got more votes than Kasich and Christie in the only poll that matters: Iowa.  It is not fair to keep her out of the debate.

I will vote for Carly Fiorina.  I urge my fellow voters of New Hampshire to vote to take our country back.
