History pointed to a leader born to fulfill a purpose. Winston Churchill was someone who was seen as controversial, openly direct and honest. He went down in history as one of the greatest politicians and statesmen in British history. He surprised many Brits during the Second World War by giving his opinion that Britain must stand up against Hitler and Nazi Germany. This “ruffled many feathers.” The huge majority of British Parliamentarians did not feel comfortable bucking the trend and remained silent by not stirring the pot. However, Churchill was one man who refused to remain quiet. He openly and directly confronted British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, Parliament and urged other nations in the western world to stand up and confront the dangers of Nazism and Adolf Hitler. If Britain did not, these dangers would come back to haunt the nation. Churchill was right. Hitler would eventually bomb London, England. Churchill would eventually be elected the Prime Minister to take Britain into the Second World War and defeat Hitler. It was a hard path but he was the man who rose to power at the right time and place to change the history of Europe forever.
Like Churchill, there is the possibility that President-elect Donald Trump might be a leader fit for a special purpose to lead the U.S. in this time of need. The economy seems headed into a collision course; and radical Islam, ISIS and jihadism has as their goal the establishment of a caliphate. Do you think Trump might be pre-ordained for a time and place today to be a leader of the United States of America for a special reason and season? I do think he has the great potential to be a voice of realism and tilt a balance of power in a direction the nation needs to take.
