||I appreciate the input. I don't think it makes a difference to us any longer what the Rebbe's position on this was.
As the Rambam says, Moshiach cannot be someone who is not alive anymore.
We all must remember that Moshiach will not be voted in by a Democratic election. We cannot choose who it should be. The biggest thing holding back the coming of Moshiach is the sitting around and waiting for him. So it says in the Talmud.
If people want to wish for Moshiach, or wish for a specific person to be the Moshiach, go ahead, but keep it to yourself and go about the job you were put here for, and get that job done properly. You know this, I know this, and hopefully our leaders can get this out to the others that don't know this....
