The first in the series of threads on the US Elections was posted in July. The theme of that thread was on the questions of how we select the candidate who we think should be the winner of the 2024 Presidential election.
What are the standards we draw on to make our decisions? How do we decide?
What are our criteria? Do we use a critical evaluation process?
I concluded my last comment in that thread with the following observation:
The primaries kick off in January. In the next five months, the GOP voters will need to think long and hard about how their voting decisions will affect the final results for the 2024 General Election.
This is the second in the series. The race to win the GOP nomination is now on, with campaigning in earnest by the candidates.
I plan this to be mostly sharing of links and information which will provide reference material by way of articles, comments, video clips, images and other related data or viewpoints from the various sources, including legacy media, alternative media or social media. It is up to the readers to use the information as they please. Learn from it, research further, have a discussion or debate, or just ignore it.
We have had some commenting on the US Elections in the Open Threads. I don’t want to repeat the comments that I have shared there, so I will add the links here.
See August thread and September thread.
Unlike my comments in the first post of this series where I tried to organise my data in a group or a logical order, this one is going to be without major attention to date sequence or topic or any such arrangement. The reason is because it is too time-consuming.
Whenever possible, I will try to post similar subject matter links as a set and add some background to origin or dates, otherwise you will have to pick out the details from what is posted. The speed at which events are moving makes it hard to fact-check. I try to check the origins, but the research takes up time. So I will share here and leave it up to each of you to pick it up and follow from there. As I mentioned in the first part, the responses from some candidates and their supporters can get quite ugly and vicious.
