Likud Primaries, HELP! Who are the RIGHT Candidates?


This is the first time in decades I find myself totally lost. Now besides my neighbor Shevach Shtern שבח שטרן, whom I trust and will vote for, I haven't a clue.

Please share this post around and ask people to write their recommendations in the comments, thanks.

I think the most important thing is that people unite and put there votes towards the same party so it carries weight . Otherwise there will be tens of thousands of wasted votes. If this doesnt happen the left will chas veshalom have the possibility of coming into power. The charedim as well have to start waking up to the fact they can have a voice and that they have to start thinking of the collective good of am yisroel . They are no longer a minority. I think that the whole key herei isachdut. If someone would just create a catchy achdut campaign now with an emphasis on kindness and truely caring about the people,this can be what turns it all around now and finally gets a government that will be a shaliach for Hashem. If we wouldnt all be stuk in our own truth but somehow try to make it bigger than mybe maybe things canturn around.we need some actsof greatness now. I hope and pray this can happen as for sure there are so many simple great people in Eretz Yisroel

Keep looking and ask questions. Hang in there. I know, not very helpful info. Look what we got in our last.elections: a half Muslim, half X-tian who's only goal is to destroy the US. He was not elected, rather, he was selected....
You are in a pickle and it's crazy. Vote for the one you think Hashem would want you to vote for- the one who is closest.to what Jewish Torah values look like.
In the end, Hashem is pulling it all together with a particular flare for a reason, yet your vote shows Hashem where YOU are holding in all of this.
No real good candiy exists maybe? Then, ask a shiloh if perhaps abstaining is better?
Hatzlachoh!!!

To make things clear.
Internal Likud primaries are not Knesset elections and membership in Likud does not mean I vote for it in Knesset elections.

Leah: Batya has a better idea of what she wants than of what kind of a person any particular person is - and this is is probably the biggest problem sometimes when people are voting.

To be in the Likud bot not to vote for it is not really something to aspire to. Bot here my list:
Moshe Feiglin
Shai Malka
Yehuda Glick (regional)
Michael Ratzon
Zipi Hotobeli
Juli Edelstein
Yariv Levin
Israel Katz
Zev Elkin
Chaim Katz
Dani Danon
Miri Regev
Ayoub Kara

Leah said...

Yes, very true, Sanmmy F. I don't envy this one bit. Hang in there.

Batya Medad said...

Thanks. Though hotobeli has mellowed and regev other problems.
grrr...

David Rubli said...

Chaim Katz and Miri Regev are also my least favorites on that list, i will probably replace them.

Batya Medad said...

Ideology or honesty?
Do we need to vote full number?

David Rubli said...
