Republicans Rebel Against "Free" Speech, Enterprise and Press - Take Presidential Debates off CNN and NBC

It makes no sense for Republicans to pull their national presidential candidates debates off of CNN and NBC because both channels are considering airing Clinton feature programs.  

This bizarrely hypocritical, not mention stupid, decision to snub the presidential debates, demonstrates just how insecure Republicans are about their 2016 chances to win the White House, especially if Mrs. Hillary Clinton is the Democratic candidate.  

They're cowardly looking for any excuse to whine about their dismal 2016 election prospects. Consequently, the Republicans, led by their GOP chairman Reince Priebus, are taking their debate toys, ie, the candidates, and high tailing home on their hind legs.  

Boston — The Republican National Committee, responding to plans by two television networks for programs about Hillary Rodham Clinton, approved a resolution Friday to block CNN and NBC from hosting GOP presidential primary debates.
The unanimous vote affirmed RNC Chairman Reince Priebus’s threat against the networks if they went ahead with programs about Clinton, a possible Democratic presidential contender. Priebus said CNN has “an obvious bias.”

This GOP debate nixing decision is cowardly.

Republicans understand how Freedom of Speech works.  

In America, it means there are absolutely no restrictions on how the networks report news or present historic documentaries.  It's wrong and cowardly to pull the GOP candidates out of debates because they disagree with network programming.

Republicans understand how Freedom of the Press works.  

In American, it means news is not censored for any reason. It's wrong and cowardly to pull the GOP candidates out of debates because they disagree with how news networks want to report or produce documentaries about the Clintons.

Republicans understand Free Enterprise. 

In America, it means competitive businesses are encouraged to engage in unrestricted trade, to create products and produce sponsored television programming. It's wrong and cowardly to pull the GOP candidates out of debates because they disagree with how news networks want to create advertised programming.

It's apparent the GOP are now against three Freedoms essential to supporting a capitalistic democracy. Priebus is opposing Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press and Free Enterprise.

This hypocritical decision to "not debate" on CNN or NBC is evidence that Republicans don't  support capitalism or democracy, unless it favors their right wing extremist policies.  

It appears Republicans won't  tolerate anything "free", unless it blocks progressive policies.

Nevertheless, Americans are free to vote all Republicans out of office and elect people to political office who understand American freedoms. We need political leaders who freely support freedom of the press, speech and enterprise for all people.
