Presidential Debate ‘Phallacies’

The latest Republican debate gave new meaning to ‘up and coming’ politicians. Seriously, what have we come to? I mean, Trump stood out like a sore thumb. Ok, enough with the logical ‘phallicies.’ Ok, I’m done.

Pardon the puns, but has political discord seriously reduced itself to this level?

A few days ago, Marco Rubio made reference to Donald Trump’s ‘small’ hands, then he followed with the proverbial statement, ‘you know what they say about small hands.’ Naturally that would come up in the debate. Ok, I did it again, but I digress. This is the first time in U.S. history that there was a penis size reference during a Presidential debate. After picking my jaw off of the floor, my first thought was, ‘oh no he didn’t.’

Look, innuendo can be good for a chuckle, however, our leaders need to hold themselves to a higher standard. These men are running for the highest office in the land. We have ISIS is trying to kill us, spending has run amok and these men are busy worrying about the size of each other’s pe…. I mean presidential staff. Remember, the whole world is watching.

We need to get serious. It’s time for all the candidates to start acting presidential. I do give credit to John Kasich and Ted Cruz for at least keeping it professional.

As for Marco Rubio, he needs to stop acting like a spoiled child who is not getting his way and focus on why he thinks he’s the best man for the job. It looked like he was attacking Trump the whole night and rarely focused on what his ideas were. Lastly, Donald Trump is the front runner, he needs act like it. He will likely be the nominee unless he starts losing everything. To get respect, one must command respect. It would be nice to see some humility toward the folks that are making him the frontrunner.

For all the candidates, it’s really time to focus on your message. Why you are the best man to lead this nation through a challenging time. I like to use the analogy of the iPad. The most brilliantly marketed product in history. Never once did Steve Jobs say what the iPad could do, but rather focused on what you can do with the iPad. We need the candidates to tell us what the country can do with them as President.

I am not saying this to demean the candidates. They each have many positive attributes and either man is a world better than Hillary or Bernie. Seriously, a socialist or an incompetent criminal are awaiting us if we cannot stop acting like children.

I am holding out for a hero, and I seriously don’t want a zero.

Let’s roll!

Paris Procopis
If Paris is in a room filled with people, you will usually see him front and center talking and laughing with everyone. His effervescent, outgoing personality brings a refreshing change to the sometimes hostile political world. He takes advantage of his private sector relationship management and comedy improv experience to easily engage any size audience, from individuals to thousands. He has always had a passion for all things political and the world around us, and brings a unique and sometimes humorous, perspective. He has been involved in everything from working on individual campaigns to organizing large political rally's. While Paris is a solid Conservative, he takes the time to understand opposing viewpoints. He lives by the mantra, ‘Do not try to change the minds of others as someone else will easily change it back. Just simply state the facts and they may change their own mind, if that happens, you may have an ally for life.’

Fragile Egos, and the Surprising Challenge to a SUCCESSFUL Republican County Chairman

We shouldn't be voting Terry Dittrich out, he should be reelected and his SUCCESSFUL efforts need to be duplicated throughout the state. Heck, with the fact that Democrats have been owning local offices for decades, I'd say this needs to be duplicated nationwide. I cannot think of any reason to replace a rare workhorse like Terry Dittrich at this juncture. The numbers matter and they are heavily in his favor. Sadly, I fear there is something more sinister, and frankly petty, at play here.
