We live in perillous times; Trump and Cruz are the most honest, rational and predictable

Hello, Sofa

Seeing that no US President has ever been removed from office via impeachment, I don't believe it's a "sure bet" that anyone elected in November goes that route. Four Presidents have been assasinated, so there's always a chance of that.

We still nine months of living under the worst President in US history, so forgive me for being more concerned over this very clear and present danger to my well-being, than to any hypothetical Pres and VP we might choose in November. Obama has been in power for seven years, fighting to curtail my rights and those of my fellow Americans, and nursing a bitter hostility toward Israel. I've had to pray quite a lote for this country, its people and the church here; and also for Israel, along with its people, including some friends of ours. More than any of these, I pray for our family -- both in the US and in China; and despite your apparent trepidations about things you thing MIGHT happen here beginning next year, I am much more concerned about China, where my family and others are looking for the exits because of troubles they are already going through.

I would like to see Donald Trump elected, because:

1. He and Ted Cruz both seem to be both the most honest, rational and predictable of the four candidates.

2. Trump and Cruz are also, by far, the most Israel-friendly candidates, and

3. Trump has genuine support among real Republicans; as opposed to Cruz, who is supported by the Establishment and their puppets, running scared of losing their privileged position.

On the Democratic side, Clinton represents the Establishment at its sickest and worse; and Bernie Sanders, despite his likeable genuineness, is exceedingly anti-Israel.

Now you know my preferences; but I need to live with the real possibility that Clinton or Sanders could end up in the White House; and if that happens, I will continue to pray, just as I have for Obama. I will also continue to pray for Hu Jintao. I also have to pray that war doesn't break out between the two; and if it does, that my children and grandchildren will find a safe haven to live productive and Godly lives.

Coming back to your VP remarks, We've lived for seven years now, under the Presidency of an extremely dangerous and divisive Barack Obama, who God has been protecting from assassination; and his Vice President, Joe Biden, would probably be re-elected by a landslide if something happened to the Pres. The situation is similar to the 1964 election that swept LB Johnson into office after JF Kennedy got assassinated. No better outcome could possibly occur for Obama, who in his death would be proclaimed the Messiah and have a month re-named in his memory. God's hand, thankfully, has restrained this sort of thing.

Let's not kid ourselves. We are marching towards Doomsday for most, and towards and Redemption for those of us who trust in God. Until we get there, we live in perilous times.

Shalom shalom
