Galganov gives spot on reasons why Trump has a great chance of being
elected where Perot didn't 




THIS IS NOT TO DEFEND ANYTHING I WROTE . . . ‘CAUSE IT NEEDS NO DEFENSE:

Let me set the record straight about John McCain being a HERO . . .
because some people wrote that no matter what McCain does or did after
he was released from captivity, he was nonetheless a true American Hero.



WHO’S A HERO ACCORDING TO GALGANOV:

1 – Every man and woman who volunteers to wear the uniform of his/her
country is a HERO.

2 – McCain was not the only American serviceman who was captured and
tortured. He was one of many over the centuries.

3 – MY DAD WAS A 100% BONA-FIDE WWII HERO . . . During the Battle of
Monte Casino, my dad was hit hard in his head with flying shrapnel. He
was carried off the field to be stitched-up, and ordered to the rear for
hospital care.

BUT THE FIGHTING WASN’T DONE . . . AND NEITHER WAS MY DAD.

As soon as he was sutured, he walked out of the battle-front clinic,
picked up his Enfield 303, grabbed as many clips as he could carry, and
went back to doing what he VOLUNTEERED to do . . . SERVE HIS COUNTRY AND
FIGHT NAZIS.

4 – And that wasn’t the first, last, and only time he showed incredible
courage . . . but to him, he was just one of more than 1,000,000
Canadians doing what had to be done, which to his way of thinking, was
the price all men had to pay for FREEDOM.

MY DAD NEVER THOUGHT OF HIMSELF AS A HERO . . . NEVER! But, he always
thought of his comrades-in-battle as his brothers – I THINK THEY ALL
DID.



SO HERE’S THE RUB ON MCCAIN:

My DAD did his service way above and beyond the call of duty; he was
wounded, sickened (Malaria), fought in hand-to-hand combat, lived in the
open in the mud, rain and snow, carried a Bren (Machine) Gun when not
carrying his Enfield 303, and rode a battle Motorcycle between and
behind enemy lines as a Scout and DISPATCH RIDER.

My dad was written up repeatedly in Dispatches, awarded medals for his
service, and won the Bronze Lion, presented by Queen Wilhelmina, the
Netherland’s second highest award for outstanding bravery. NOT BAD FOR A
CANADIAN born to immigrant parents.



LET ME WRITE IT AGAIN . . . MY DAD WAS A REAL 100% HERO:

And let me write this as clearly as I possibly can. UNLIKE JOHN MCCAIN,
my dad came home after serving, and went about getting a job. Not a
fancy job. Just a job, so he could get married, have children, put a
roof over his family’s head, food on the table, and raise his family as
best he could . . . Just like millions of other North Americans did when
they came home from war



BUT WHAT MY DAD DIDN’T DO . . . WAS TRADE ON HIS WAR-TIME RECORD:

There have been MILLIONS of Canadian and American Military HEROES who
sacrificed greatly in the cause of FREEDOM, many of whom never had the
chance to come home. And many who came home scarred and broken . . .
99.9% of whom NEVER traded on their war history.



SO WHAT MAKES MCCAIN SPECIAL?

What MCCAIN endured in Vietnam, became who he was, as if it made him
somehow special, unassailable, bordering on being holy, to be revered
and BEYOND criticism. THAT’S JUST BS!



HE SERVED . . . HE WAS CAPTURED – HE WAS RELEASED . . . END OF STORY.

McCain INSULTED not just 15,000 people in Arizona WHO CAME OUT TO HEAR
TRUMP the other day, but rather, also MILLIONS of other Americans who
love what Trump is saying . . . but that’s OK, because McCain is a HERO.

McCain insulted fellow Republican Senators (Ted Cruz and Rand Paul), by
publicly calling them WACKO-BIRDS, because he didn’t agree with their
position . . . but that’s OK too, because McCain is a HERO.

McCain’s career is replete with DRIVE-BY insults and snide remarks
targeting a plethora of people, with whom he either didn’t like, didn’t
agree with, or thought were unworthy. BUT THAT’S OK TOO . . . BECAUSE
MCCAIN WAS A HERO!



THE MASSIVE TRUMP CONTRIBUTION:

It’s remarkable how Trump, who is one of the most unlikely champions of
FREEDOM and DEMOCRACY . . . is shining the strength of a KLIEG LIGHT on
the insanity that has become the governance of the United States of
America, exposing the PHONIES, who are making and have made decisions
that are killing the USA.



IF NOTHING ELSE . . . TRUMP HAS OPENED AMERICA’S POLITICAL PANDORA’S
BOX:

I heard former Texas Governor, Rick Perry, speaking on television this
morning (July 21, 2015). It must be made clear before I continue, that I
always thought Perry could be a good President, and when he spoke, I
always figured it was worth listening . . . BUT.

In what Trump would take a smattering of words to CLEARLY, yet
inarticulately express, Perry took reams of measured words, just to get
to a less than finite point. AND THAT SUMS UP WHY SO MANY PEOPLE SUPPORT
TRUMP.

Trump speaks people . . . MOST of the rest speak politics.



I SERIOUSLY DOUBT THAT TRUMP WILL EVER BE PRESIDENT:

I also doubt that Trump will run as an Independent if he doesn't make it
to the nomination, but one never knows what a person who is capable will
do.

I've read and received a huge number of emails reminding me about Ross
Perot, and how he ushered in the Clintons by dividing Conservatives, as
a warning about supporting TRUMP. But there are MANY significant
differences.

1 – Trump is no Ross Perot. Or maybe Perot was no Trump.

2 – The American people were not nearly as fed-up with Washington then
as they are today.

3 – The LEFT were always a problem. But nothing like they are now.

4 – America was NOT teetering on insolvency as it is today . . . with
MORE than $18-TRILLION in debt and growing by the second.

5 – Islam was not the threat then . . . that it is now.

6 – America was not nearly as torn along racial, gender, class, and
numerous other contrived divides.

7 – There were far more MAKERS then, than there are TAKERS today.

8 – America was the most powerful, feared, and respected country on the
planet, which isn’t true now.

9 – America has surrendered EXCEPTIONALISM for being ordinary . . . to
being just another nation amongst nations.

10 – AND THERE WAS NO OBAMA . . . THE ENEMY FROM WITHIN.

11 – There were no undocumented people in America . . . THEY WERE
ILLEGAL!

12 – People had the choice of Health Care, without having the government
shoving it’s version down the population’s throat as it is today.

13 – And perhaps the most important issue . . . is how Congress has
allowed Obama and the Supreme Court to utterly disregard and disassemble
the US Constitution.



THOSE ARE JUST SOME DIFFERENCES BETWEEN TRUMP TODAY AND PEROT THEN:

Let me repeat . . . If all that Trump does now, is to continue to shine
a BRIGHT LIGHT on (in his words) the LOSERS in Washington; that in
itself is something that would deserve the gratitude of the American
people.
