NO ONE PROMOTED TED CRUZ MORE THAN ME . . . which makes my decision to drop my support for his Nomination extremely difficult, because I understand completely, that he has tremendous Courage of Independent Thought and Action.
And I fully accept and acknowledge that he showed loyalty to the people who elected him to the Senate, for how he stood-up to McConnell and others in his own Party . . . based on solid Principles.
And that there are very few people who have a greater understanding and respect for the US Constitution, and what I believe is his sincere love for Israel . . . which are additional reasons why removing my support for Cruz is painful.
Quite a few people emailed me, or wrote in the comment section that Cruz is the victim of an Alinsky-Like SMEAR, and has been unfairly targeted.
But People shouldn’t think for a second that I am not FULLY conversant with the Alinsky Philosophy, because I am . . . so I can tell you that this has nothing to do with an Alinsky-Type Strategy.
1 – You surround yourself with people just like you in terms of VALUES, HONESTY and INTEGRITY . . . which is something Cruz obviously didn’t do. And that has nothing to do with Alinsky-Type thinking.
2 – The people who actually CHEATED in this campaign on behalf of Cruz, did not convey the Cruz belief in his Godly Ethics. And that too has nothing to do with Alinsky-Type thinking.
3 – Neither Trump, Carson, Rubio or a nefarious LEFTIST sent out the Flyers that MISLED the voters in Iowa. This was all on the Cruz Campaign.
The same can be said about the ROBO-CALLS . . . stating that Carson has resigned from the Iowa campaign, even though defenders of Cruz want to lay 100% of the blame on CNN, which isn’t even the least bit true, since you would need to STRETCH the CNN newscast to the limits to make that connection.
4 – And even after this horrible dirty political deed was made public, there were more . . . Trump, Carson, Rubio – nor anyone else created the Photo-Shopped image of Rubio shaking hands with Obama, which too was all on the Cruz Campaign.
And even then . . . NO HEADS ROLLED.
5 – It wasn’t until the Cruz Communication’s DIRECTOR created a LIE questioning Rubio’s commitment to the Bible . . . that Cruz FINALLY did the right thing, and FIRED someone.
Ted Cruz didn’t take action, and the DIRTY TRICKS kept on coming. Had Cruz stood-up RIGHT AT THE BEGINNING, and demanded to know who was responsible for the deceitful mailing in Iowa, and made a PUBLIC STATEMENT BY FIRING that person with the understanding that CRUZ WOULD NOT COUNTENANCE such dishonest and unethical behavior, there is little doubt in my mind that Cruz would be leading in the polls.
My big problem with Cruz . . . is that he personally set himself and his campaign MILES ABOVE THE COMPETITION ON THE MORALITY SCALE.
And he wrapped himself in the Bible in terms of morality and ethics, and has made a POINT in just about every Cruz interview that I’ve seen, that he will NOT get into the mud with his competition, and then comes the DIRTY POLITICAL TRICKS from the Cruz Campaign.
But let me make this as clear as I can. If Cruz were to win . . . he would have as much support from this BLOG as I could muster.
From time to time . . . people POST their COMMENTS on the editorial page, which either lacks their First and or Last Name, City, State or Province. And when this happens, I allow it JUST ONCE.
For those few incomplete profiles, I personally contact each person, asking for him or her to send (via return email) the information I need to update their profile. And if he or she doesn’t . . . and then COMMENTS again, his or her comment will be removed, and he or she will be BLOCKED from the Galganov.com Directory.
A great many people really like to read the Comments, and want to know from where they come. So it’s very little for me to ask, and even less for people to provide, to make this simple information complete.
Best Regards . . . Howard Galganov
