And not only is it for the future of America, it is also for the future of the world.
The great debate(s) are only days away, and everyone is anticipating a CAGE FIGHT between TRUMP and the REST . . . but it seems to me that the Media, which is promoting this Main Event as the Super Bowl of Republican politics is missing the boat.
I can’t believe how the Media and FOX News are somewhat ignoring a debate that might in some ways prove to be MORE important, than the debate amongst the TOP-TEN.
IN THE MAIN EVENT . . . The way the Media is setting it up, it’s going to be all about Trump, and which other Republicans he’s going to beat-up. I can’t see how it’s going to be mostly about substance, when all the media-talk is about TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP.
IN THE “LESSER” DEBATE . . . There will be no TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP – it will be all about policies, ideas and credentials amongst SEVERAL GREAT CANDIDATES, who thus far have been lost in the TRUMP Whirlwind.
And then there’s the fact that there will be 7-Candidates in the “LESSER” debate, instead of TEN, which even though they will have just 1-Hour to debate, opposed to the 90-Minutes the Main Event gets . . . that 1-Hour with 7-Debaters, will give the better Candidates a much more opportune chance to STRUT THEIR STUFF and impress the voters.
We should not lose sight of the real challenge, which seems to me, to already be lost in the weeds of managed TELEVISION POLITICS to most of the people.
What will be happening on Thursday . . . will be as politically exciting as we can imagine, but it is neither REALITY TV nor a CHAMPIONSHIP SPORTS EVENT, where we cheer for our heroes when they win, and lament our favorite teams when they lose . . . because win or lose, when it comes right down to the essentials, the outcome in sports and reality TV is meaningless to the cheering fans.
BUT . . . in this contest . . . HE OR SHE WHO WINS will decide the future of the world, which I think is somewhat lost on the cheering masses. AND THAT’S A TRAGEDY.
SO . . . Don’t watch the debates for form – WATCH FOR CONTENT, because the man or woman who wins could be the man or woman who will change the world for better or worse.
