What does an ideal candidate for President look like? As I thought about it, I pictured someone standing and facing the opposite direction. I was looking at this person from the back which may seem a little strange at first, but then I thought that this was the right perspective. Why? Because that person would be leading, and others would be behind him and encouraging him to stay the course.
What qualities does that person have that are ideal? Besides being a person of moral integrity, I came up with five. The ideal candidate:
You might be thinking “Wow, that is quite a list.” In today’s world we are so accustomed to unprincipled, spineless politicians that at first you may think I am describing some sort of Superman, but I am not.
At one time this ‘ideal’ candidate was the norm in America though none have ever been perfect or thought exactly the same way. I believe that there are such men and women out there today who fit this description, or come mighty close to it.
So, what do you think? How close do each of the current 2016 presidential primary candidates come? Is there one who, in your opinion, stands out from the crowd? Who is it, and what do you do now?
Here is what I recommend:
Once you have found the person you believe is truly the best presidential choice, get out there and bring in those votes! You are going to make a difference. How do you do that? You talk to people, put a sign in your yard, contribute money and time to your candidate even if it can only be a small amount. You knock on doors and hand out literature, but mostly you persuade people to come out and vote for your person by offering reasons why they should support him or her.
America is in decline, but can be turned around. She is waiting on you to rescue her and the Founding Fathers would expect Americans to be patriots and sacrifice a little comfort and convenience to fight for freedom.
Have you decided on someone and are you willing to join the fight? Great! Now get to work because there is not much time left, and may the Lord be with you.
