As I sit here watching the new pilot (several weeks behind) “Designated Survivor” with Kiefer Sutherland, glad to see him back in what might be a very successful new show, I can’t help but reflect back to last night’s debate with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump and ask myself who do we want as our Designated Leader. In the first part of the pilot Tom Kirkman, a cabinet member, who has just been told he is to take an Ambassadors position makes the statement to his wife, who insinuated, if you had played their games you wouldn’t be out of a job. Tom’s response was, I would just be like one of those guys, when I got into this we had a deal; I wasn’t going to be one of those guys. When I said designated leader, I want you to think about who will be in charge if the unthinkable were to happen here in America, an event of “Catastrophic Destruction” to our country. An event that immediately takes the lives of thousands if not hundreds of thousands of people. An event that we knew who the attackers were and what their intentions were. Who do we want to answer the three o’clock call in the middle of the night?
We, the voters in America have to make a decision, a decision that will affect and shape America, our children, our grandchildren and us for generations to come. We have to make a decision between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Another way of looking at this is which lesser of two evils do we choose? As I sit here watching this show, no this is not going to be a play by play, I see the panic of Kirkman, the indecision in his demeanor, the fear in his eyes as he enters a bathroom and pukes out his guts knowing the questions in his mind must be what do I do now? How do I save the greatest country in the world from the impending destruction, from within and from enemies on the outside?
Yes, this election is just that important.
Do we go with the status quo, or do we go with a person we really don’t know much about other than what we have seen on reality TV? Do we go with a person who has proven to be questionable in their protecting our nation’s secrets, or do we go with a person who strikes fear in a lot of people because of his seemingly inability to control his tendencies to overreact? Do we go with a person who will not say who our current enemy is, Radicle Islamic Terrorism or do we go with a person who has on multiple occasions shown no fear in naming or enemies? Do we go with a person who wants open borders or a person who wants to build a wall to stop or at best slow the entry of possible enemies of America? Do we go with a person who wants to increase the number of Muslim refugees entering America by over Five Hundred Percent or do we want a person who wants to temporarily stop the flow of known groups that could contain potential threats to our country until they could be vetted if that is possible? This list of do we’s could go on but you need to seek your own do we’s and answer them with what you believe to be a decision based on the best outcome for America. We can’t let our decision become influenced by what some are saying it has become her turn, she has earned the Office of the President of The United States of America. One doesn’t earn the office just by serving in other Washington positions. A person earns the right to sit in the Oval Office by presenting ideas that reflect the heritage of American values, along with the belief that America is the greatest country in the world. Ideas that represents all “Americans” equally, not showing favoritism toward groups of people only because they might represent votes. Google “Email shows federal immigration bosses in OT push to swear in new citizens ‘due to election’”. I find it distressing that any office of our government would encourage field offices to swear in as many new “citizen voters” as possible before the Nov. 8 presidential election. While I do believe our government is corrupt at least in some areas, I find it troublesome that there are flagrant attempts to sway our election in such an open manner.
I can only hope that each of you looks deep into your hearts and beliefs, at least where America’s future is concerned and give much time in prayer and vote for the person you feel will represent America in a way that she, America, so richly deserves. Regardless of the outcome of this election, you need to know in your heart that you voted your heart and for the person, you feel will be the best selection for the Presidency of The United States of America. God bless America.
For Liberty and Freedom. Ernie
