Having run in three elections now, I know how mainstream media simply refuse to give any exposure to the 3Ds (Disadvantaged, Disengaged, Disempowered) choosing their top horses and giving them so much free publicity while others have to pay for every letter or are ignored. And when they do write a few words about you it comes with total misunderstanding as of course they did not bother to find out or check with you. That is why, this time, I am writing this daily blog, to have at least one place where people can work out for themselves who I am and what I stand for. I was also on just about every social media platform but vacated them about a year ago to clear the clutter and make room for launching GOLORE and now, also my fresh political campaign. I have now decided on twitter only, as one place where I will interact with my followers. I previously took part in another blog but exited shortly afterwards as that is really a platform for people who refuse to make an informed debate but go only for personal attacks with no substance; probably their only way to get rid of anger over other things in their lives. Within my blogging, people are encouraged to comment; however, I maintain the right to delete any comment which is only a dirty attack with no grounds. I am a person who actually thrives being challenged on my perspectives as long as people remember that just as my views are only my views so their views are only their views. There comes a time in any debate where one has to say, let us agree to disagree – this does not imply conceding defeat, in fact, it is a very healthy state of respecting each other. My blog is, for me, the voice of the ant against the elephant – when a few ants have gathered the elephant will be in trouble indeed. [Not having a voice, is one of the reasons why so many people suffer some form of mental instability – a comment in addition to the previous blog.] So I invite you to make thoughtful comments, share my blogs and follow me on twitter. And to meet me in person, come to a campaign event.
