There are NO BAD GUYS or a BAD GAL in this Republican Campaign. And unless you’ve done this yourself, you can have NO IDEA HOW HARD IT IS TO PUT YOURSELF OUT THERE, the way all of these Candidates have, and are continuing to do.
I have nothing but admiration for everyone on the Republican side, especially amongst the Conservatives, because it sure isn’t easy to live with the plethora of LIES, DISTORTIONS & INSULTS, not just from competitive Candidates, but also from the public.
I have been inundated with RUDENESS AND STUPIDITY, on as grand a scale as I could never have imagined, for instance – one of the readers to Galganov.com, who has been part of this BLOG for a very long time, asked to be removed from the Directory, because he could no longer read a BLOG that supports Ineligible Candidates, namely Ted Cruz, because in his mind, Cruz isn’t really an American. NO PROBLEM . . . IT’S EASY FOR ME TO CLICK DELETE.
I had one guy write in the Comment Section the other day, that I should Shut My Big Canadian Mouth. I guess he didn’t mean anything by it, but just in case he did, I deleted him from the Comment Section – and GOODBYE from the Directory.
Because of how incredibly tough it is, to put yourself and your family forward in an election, with the insults and costs . . . everyone of us should give praise to the Men . . . and in this case to a Conservative Woman, who VOLUNTARILY AGREES TO BE EVERYONE’S PUNCHING BAG.
And that said . . . it’s also more than appropriate to campaign for your choice, and against other Candidates with whom you disagree, with solid arguments. But, it is not in the interest of FREEDOM, or arriving at the best choice when the arguments are SHRILL and DISINGENUOUS.
I’ve laid out WHOM I don’t support amongst many of the Candidates, and explained WHY. But . . . it’s in the explaining of WHY that makes the difference.
I NEVER suggest that you take what I write as the Gospel. And even though I try really hard, AND I DO MEAN REALLY HARD, to be as HONEST and FACTUAL as possible, that doesn’t mean that I don’t screw-up and make honest mistakes. Just in the past couple of weeks, I had to walk back one claim, and correct the numbers on another, because like you, I‘m just human.
THAT SAID . . . There are plenty of BLOGGERS and Media types who believe and pass-on all kinds of TRIPE, which comes onto your screens. And then there is no shortage of people on the Internet who CREATE LIES, for whatever purpose, MUCH OF IT NEFARIOUS.
The COMMENT Section of Galganov.com has become very popular, but, from time to time, people who leave Comments are somewhat SHRILL, and attack me as if I was the enemy. They kind of forget whose SITE they’re reading.
The other thing about a FEW people who leave Comments, . . . they use the Comment Section as their own personal Vehicle with which to Campaign for their Champion without disseminating FACTS, which I don’t appreciate . . .
IN ALL . . . The Republicans are doing really well – ALL OF THEM, because each one IS IN IT, in spite of the CRAP that is thrown their way, which includes: substantial costs, the constant BEGGING for funds, the travel, being away from friends and family, crappy meals, uncomfortable beds, shaking hands with people they would prefer not to, listening to fools telling them what they’re doing wrong, and the massive disappointments that come with the turf.
In my last Editorial, I called Berne Sanders a SCHMUCK – I stand by that, because here is a man with all the answers for what ails the USA, as long as he and his kind can soak the MAKERS, just as he has been LEECHING off the people for generations, while sitting in Congress for 25-Years, after sitting for 8-Years as the Mayor of Burlington Vermont.
AND FOR HILLARY CLINTON . . . She and her husband are simply EVIL, for whom there can be no kind or supportive words . . . other than GUILTY, and the sentence is . . .
BEFORE THESE CAMPAIGNS ARE DONE . . . All the Candidates will eventually have to stop with the insults, and FOCUS ENTIRELY on their vision for the USA, AND EXACTLY HOW THEY INTEND TO DO WHAT THEY’RE PROMISING, which will impact heavily on the rest of the world . . . So, listen to what they say and research what they’ve done – BECAUSE, the time for everyone to get serious . . . is upon us.
AND REMEMBER THIS . . . Eventually, one of the Candidates will become THE CANDIDATE, and when the INTERNECINE ACRIMONY IS DONE, we will all have to coalesce behind the winner, and BRING IT HOME FOR THE GOOD GUYS, no matter who that Candidate is . . . even if it’s Chris Christie, of whom I am no fan.
And once he or she wins the Presidency, we should be prepared to Hold His or Her Feet to the Fire without MERCY.
PS – To date, I am very PRO-Cruz, but, as the campaign winds its way, who knows what can come up to either strengthen my support or change it completely. And that’s why we have Debates and Aggressive Campaigns.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
