EDITORIAL: Who will be Behind the Curtain?

editorial2Remember the movie “The Wizard of Oz?” Remember the scene where the gigantic head who represented the Wizard? This head had a boisterous, commanding, loud voice that was intimidating. Then the little dog, Toto pulled the curtain back and there was an ordinary man who was controlling the image and projecting it in front of the curtain.

With most candidates running for political office, especially this year with a very historical Presidential race, you have to remember what team is behind the big, boisterous heads. Will it be a continuance of Mr. President or will there be a Madam President? I have to pinch myself to finally realize that this day will be here and all this craziness will finally be over.

We mentioned before in some countries you only have a limited time to campaign but it seems as if this campaigning has been going on for at least three years. Any way you will look at, this election is going to be historic because you have one longtime established politician vs. someone who has always said they were going to run for President, but backed out. This time he surprised everyone by going through the whole campaign and eliminated 16 established politicians and some accomplished professionals in other fields. Who would have thunk it?

Some people are predicting that there will be a landslide victory, but are we really sure who the victor will be? We had a previous editorial where we mentioned a character named Gomer Pyle who was fond of saying: “SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE!” He would ay this when something totally unexpected happened.

I think in the case of the Presidential Election, a lot of people will be turning into Gomer Pyle and using that same expression. Sure, both candidates have their flaws and faults. You know why? They’re both HUMANS. But when the dust settles, you have to see which flaw is the one that affected and hurt the most people.

There are people who proclaimed that if certain candidates get elected into office (Presidential Election) they will leave the country. Trust me, they’re not going anyplace. Most of the time, they don’t even mention the country they want to move to.

Now, I can understand that some individuals who state they will move to other states or cities if certain people are elected. That’s more plausible and doable. Regardless of who gets into any political office, everyone should hope that they do what’s right for the citizens. This is what we and everyone should hope and pray for. And we end this editorial with: God Bless Americans and America!
