Unless those groups openly and officially represent one specific party, anyone else that comes along pointing out all the qualities and qualifications of one candidate and not mentioning any other candidate’s qualifications, their opinion or advice should be dismissed as incomplete and one-sided.
We always choose to point out to you what we think is best for the community, but it is up to you to check out what we tell you, or what any other media outlet might tell you or try to brainwash you into
believing with endorsements that only benefit those who offer the endorsement for advertisement, or in any other way profit from that endorsement.
However, because we believe that most people in the community take the endorsements very seriously, and others are so infatuated with the endorsements that come from the organizations, political party, action committees and political arms of organizations that, under the status of non-profit, are not allowed to make endorsements to choose their candidates, we are going to stop our non-endorsement decision to be able to play in a fair and balanced position to help our community choose the right candidates to serve us in different capacities — from judicial to legislature and from House of Representative to the U.S. Senate and President.
But before we make the move from no-endorsements to making the endorsements, and to make it worth anything in the name of fairness and justice, we have to make public our discontent and disappointment with every one of those male candidates that were on the stage last Saturday to participate in the eighth Republican debate sponsored by ABC News.
First, the panel was as bad, if not worse, than the first infamous debate sponsored by NBCSN with Chris Wallace, Megyn Kelly and Bret Baier; on top of that, the only female panelist, Martha Radditz, has a personal relationship with President Barack Obama, and should not have been allowed to participate in the debate, in which she showed partiality and serious unfairness to the candidates on the stage.
However, the most despicable scene was seeing all seven male candidates not coming forward and demanding that the only female candidate on the Republican side be included in the debate.
It shows that all of the men on the stage were either afraid of their female counterpart, or were too wimpy to demand that she be included in the debate.
It is our contention that if one is sure of himself — and that applies to each and every male Republican candidate — no matter who else is competing, and they are collectively brave enough to vow to destroy ISIS, and individually assure us that they are the only one that can beat Hillary Clinton on the Democrat side, why do they waste time attacking each other instead of demanding that Carly Fiorina also be included in the debate, giving “their side” that extra chance to gain votes away from the Democrats?
If they are so sure that they are the one going to be nominated, if they are so positive that each of them is going to be the favored one that gets nominated, what difference does it make at this time if anyone else is on the stage, someone who happens to be a woman by the name of Carly Fiorina — a woman that has been a CEO of a Fortune 100 corporation. It is obvious that many times, more often that they want to admit, men are intimidated by a successful woman and Carly Fiorina cannot be the exception to the rule.
Another moment of weakness on the part of the panel is how they have insulted Dr. Ben Carson; a well known neurosurgeon that is respected in all fields and well awarded in the medical field, was insulted by having to wait an hour and four minutes to get the first question from a democratic panel.
Many people that were at the debate or were watching the debate agree that Dr. Carson should have walked off the stage and protested how the panel ignored him, disrespected and discriminate against him by ignoring him. But, he showed all those people that he is a gentleman in the truest sense of the word.
No, we are not playing the race card, there are many ways of discriminating, and ignoring a person’s qualifications is just another form of discrimination.
Just putting that out there for all to think about.
