All Americans stood and applauded the performance of two Congressmen, Ted Cruz and Joe Barton. They asked the right questions during the two-day testimony of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. They defended the constitution by asking about censorship of Facebook posts.

All the elected officials should have taken this stance. The whole performance was really just a show for the American public. It was politicians trying to push their agenda, and these two stepped up and showed what a real politician does for the American people.

Ted Cruz

The senator from Texas, Ted Cruz asked questions about the first amendment and censorship. Exactly what a senator is supposed to be asking. He was asking questions that violated the United States Constitution. All Americans should take their hat off and tip it to Ted Cruz.

According to Breitbart News, Ted Cruz made the statement, “There are a great many Americans who I think are deeply concerned that Facebook and other tech companies are engaged in a pervasive pattern of bias and political censorship.” That is a statement that every elected official on the committee should have been asking, a question involving a constitutional violation.

The worst part was the answer also quoted from the story on Breitbart News. Zuckerberg responded by stating, “concerns over political bias were fair, and conceded that Silicon Valley is an 'extremely left-leaning place.'” Zuckerberg just admitted to censoring conservative views. That statement should have made the six o'clock news and every news organization from coast to coast. Everyone suspected Facebook of censorship, but now the admittance is there and stated before Congress. Good job to Ted Cruz for defending the Constitution of the United States.

Joe Barton

The day after the Senate hearings, Mark Zuckerberg was testifying before the House of Representatives. Once again most of the Congressmen wasted America's time. They were not asking about violations of the constitution. One of the exceptions was the representative from Texas, Joe Barton.

He asked, “Why is Facebook censoring conservative bloggers such as Diamond and Silk? Facebook called them 'unsafe to the community.' That is ludicrous.

They hold conservative views. That isn't unsafe.” That quote is from The Texas Tribune website. Diamond and Silk are conservative bloggers and Trump supporters who have been in the news lately because they have been blocked by Facebook. No threats of violence or starting riots just conservative views and support of Trump. Nothing unsafe about expressing your views on a social platform.

Also on The Texas Tribune website, Zuckerberg's response was, “Our team made an enforcement error, and we have already gotten in touch with them to reverse it.” Just an admittance of their mistake and not confessing to the real reason behind the ban of Facebook of Diamond and Silk.

A recurring theme of his testimony.

Mark Zuckerberg never really answered a question but was evasive during his testimony. His evasive nature took away from his credibility because he did not go to testify to clear Facebook of wrongdoing. He went there to save Face(book) and try to convince the public he was doing everything in his power to ensure he is safeguarding the information on Facebook.

The real issue here is that Facebook is censoring the American public and deciding they are better at deciding what Americans should read.

This has to stop, and the public users of Facebook need to ensure that censorship stops on all social platforms.

I would like to thank Senator Ted Cruz and Congressman Joe Barton for doing their job. They were elected to their positions to protect the United States Constitution. Their questions addressed the issue of the first amendment violation, and they asked the right questions. Of course, Mark Zuckerberg could not answer their questions because he admitted earlier Facebook is doing it.

Americans need to vote in the upcoming elections for people that will defend our Constitution regardless of party affiliation. Do not vote for the person who promises the world but will not defend and fight for our Constitution. There should not be any other question asked to any elected official other than their views on the United States Constitution. The voting public of America needs to follow the examples of Ted Cruz and Joe Barton by voting for true Americans who no matter the circumstances will fight for the honor of the United States.
