Reason #3 to Not Vote for Ray Meier: Even Ray Meier's Republican Supporters Cannot Praise Him
If a candidate's supporters cannot bring themselves to praise him, why should we vote for him? Such is the case with Ray Meier. Oh, sure, Ray Meier's supporters love to talk about Michael Arcuri, and how much they hate him. However, when it comes to Ray Meier, they don't have much of anything to say.
At this late date, there still is not one single blog or web site particularly dedicated to supporting Ray Meier's campaign for Congress, other than Ray Meier's own campaign web site. Not one.
There are sites, like CNY Underground, operated by people who support Ray Meier's campaign, but the people who run these sites don't write about Ray Meier, and what a great congressman he would make. Instead, all they can do is criticize Mike Arcuri.
Don't get me wrong: These people should be free to write whatever they want. If they want to criticize Michael Arcuri instead of trying to write about what makes their own candidate a good choice, that's their business.
I just think it's worth noting that Michael Arcuri's supporters are different from Ray Meier's supporters in this regard. Michael Arcuri's supporters criticize Ray Meier, sure. But, Arcuri supporters also write positive articles about their own candidate. They have lots to say about what makes Arcuri a good choice.
Heck, people who are at all familiar with this blog know that I am not Michael Arcuri's biggest fan, but even I have written many articles praising Arcuri.
The negativity of Ray Meier supporters ought to serve as a warning to voters in New York's 24th congressional district, because the character of a candidate's campaign is an indication of what the character of the candidate's performance in office would be like.
We don't need a right wing representative who will spend all his time trying to pull other people down. Yet, Ray Meier's supporters only know how to attack. They don't know how to build anything positive. That's reason #3 out of 30 to not vote for Ray Meier for Congress.
