This is a fantastic article by Peggy Noonan at the Wall Street Journal that explains Trump’s popularity in a nutshell. I’m not familiar with Ms. Noonan’s writings, so, I’m not sure what side her bread is buttered on this election.
It pains me to admit this, but at first, I didn’t like Trump. At all. I still don’t “like” him. As a person, I mean. I would never consider sharing a meal or even engaging in any conversation with him. But when it comes to elections, elect ability, and leadership that should be irrelevant. Putting someone in office because they’re ‘pretty’ or say nice things is a major part of what’s gotten us into the pickle we’re in now.
And since there is no other choice … certainly neither Hillary the murdering-lying-shrill-beast, nor Bernie the communist crank, are not an option for a right minded Christian, guess I’ll have to use my precious vote to ensure that neither of those two win.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. — Edmund Burke
I pray good people won’t let Hillary nor Bernie triumph.
All I can add is, I’ve been doing a lot of sighing at the TV this election. I’m sure I’m in good company.
