Each morning I become more and more discouraged with the realization that Donald Trump may become the nominee for the Republican ticket. What is worse is that he may actually be elected the president of the United States because the Democratic ticket is not any better. The election of Donald Trump is dangerous not only for the nation but the world in general. Having grown up in the 80's I remember the ticking doomsday clock tracking the number of minutes until the world ended through a nuclear exchange between the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Two world powers were at each other's throats, rattling sabers while the rest of the world, including me, sat on the sidelines hoping that no one was foolish enough to push the button that ended the world.
I am not suggesting that electing Donald Trump will end the world, but the fact is that Donald Trump does not have the ethics nor the integrity with which to be entrusted with the power to seriously erode the quality of life not only for US citizens but for the citizens of other countries. His lack of ethics and integrity are amply demonstrated by his business activities over the years.
Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the world.
The Doomsday Clock was created by a group of researchers who had participated in the Manhattan Project developing the world's first atomic bomb. In 1947, the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists started publishing a symbolic clock showing us how many minutes the world had before it ended because of a nuclear holocaust. Today, the Doomsday Clock continues to symbolically show us that that we are "three minutes" away from the end of mankind as we know ourselves to be today. Today's Doomsday Clock includes the effects of climate change due to the activities of us in addition to the proliferation of nuclear arms.
We are now months away from the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency and what I believe to be the catastrophic result imposed on the world order by his election. As a result, I believe it is appropriate to borrow on the symbology of the Doomsday Clock and apply it to the possibility of Donald Trump being elected president of the United States.
I have launched the TrumpDoomsDay.com clock.
First, the Donald Trump Doomsday Clock is counting down until the Republican Party officially nominates a presidential candidate. Should Donald Trump be the Republican nominee then I will reset the Donald Trump Doomsday Clock to count down towards Election Day.
Although the alternative to Donald Trump being on the Republican ticket, Ted Cruz, is just as bad for most everyone, the fact is that the worst possibility is a Donald Trump presidency. As such, no matter how bad Cruz, or Hillary Clinton are, they pale in comparison to Donald Trump when it comes to a catastrophic finale to world order.
I am hoping that I am not forced to reset the Donald Trump Clock after the official nominee is announced.
Feel free to let me know what you really think about the Donald Trump Doomsday Clock
