The Election

This past week I have spent a lot of time watching movies and TV (furthering the notion that there’s almost NOTHING worth watching on TV and we don’t get EWTN) and surfing the internet tracking the polls and campaign news.

As the Election approaches, the one thing that comes to mind is that I can’t believe that it’s as close as it seems to be. One candidate seems to exude confidence, leadership, character and morality. The other exudes a sense of desperation, pandering, dishonesty, opportunism, globalism, indifference to to his faith’s basic tenets and a general lack of direction.

I think you know which is which. While the first candidate has done much I agree with, he’s also done some things I don’t like. A lot. But overall, I trust him to do the right thing with conviction and certitude. The other guy has done pretty much NOTHING I agree with. And even when he has taken stands I might agree with they are trumped by opposite positions he has taken before and after on these positions. I don’t know where he really stands at any given time. The only thing I can say is that I think he would make the wrong decisions almost every time when it gets down to crunch time.

I go with character and trust every time.
