As this tumultuous political season draws to a close, there seems to be a tremendous amount of fear over the election of either candidate.The political spin makes an objective vetting of their qualifications a nightmarish task.I think the way politicians are elected to higher office is riddled with conflicts of interest. Political ads hold no relevancy in 2016.The ads are just smoke and noise.The ads and political rhetoric just create more fear in my humble opinion. More pertinently, a favorite book of mine is Frank Herbert Dune.The story is a classic of sci-fi literature.In this sci-fi story, the hero must overcome his fear to lead his people to freedom.One passage from the book is worthy of eternal remembrance.
I think this nation future leader will need to get serious and address the core issues of this country.Moreover, the time is coming for the country to face its fears and move into a new dawn.
I must not fear.Fear is the mind killer.Fear is the little -death that brings total ruin. I will face my fear.I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.When the fear is gone there will be nothing,only I will remain.
