We don’t know what to say that hasn’t already been said about the presidential candidates in the upcoming November election. Both supporting sides have dug their heels in and will probably vote for their party’s candidate no matter what. Some say they will sit it out because of the extremely flawed candidates both political parties have given us. They say there is not much to choose from, and they are certainly right.
We ran into something interesting the other day that tends to shed an entirely different light on the situation. We don’t know where it came from, but it is some food for thought. See if some of this makes any sense to you.
“This may be the best and most honest political promotion statement you will ever read. It decidedly does not brush objections aside. You hate Hillary? READ it. You hate Trump? READ it. You think there’s no choice? READ it. And, read it with your grown-up hat on. We’ve all been dealt huge responsibility with this election.
“Are you sickened and despondent with the current campaign and upcoming presidential election? I consider myself a conservative and do truly believe our country is at a political/economic/moral/social crossroads. I need to let you know I could/would never vote for Hillary Clinton to lead this country. To me, she represents everything that is wrong with our current political structure.
“On the flip side, I look and listen to Donald Trump and I cringe at every rude, insulting comment he makes. Maybe God is trying to tell us something important–now is not the time for a “nice Christian guy” or a “gentleman” or a typical Republican powder puff. Maybe now is the time for a natural born killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior. Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished.
“Maybe God understands we need a “war leader” at this moment in time. Maybe God understands if we don’t win this election, America is dead. The greatest nation in world history will be gone.
“Maybe being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat Hillary and her billion dollars and her best friends in the media who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.
“I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly. Were we gentlemanly when defeating Hitler? Were we gentlemanly when firebombing Germany? Were we gentlemanly when dropping atomic bombs on Japan?
“God is about miracles. We don’t need a “nice guy” or a “gentleman” right now. It’s the 4th quarter and we’re losing 14-0. We need a miracle.
“No one is saying Trump is perfect. No one is saying Trump is a perfect conservative. But he is a patriot. He is a warrior. He is a capitalist.
“Yes, he’s a bit rude and crude and offensive. But that may make him the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism, capitalism and Judeo-Christian values. The choice should be easy.
“It’s Trump…or it’s the end of the American dream.”
