Why I’m Voting For Trump
Let's cut to the chase. Our nation is in a code blue, moral and spiritual crisis. And, like it or not, Americans have only two viable choices for president. While I’m well aware that America cannot be made great again until the Church becomes great again, I am also mindful that, as a Christian, I possess a solemn moral obligation to choose the most righteous candidate possible for the office. And while I’m no fan of some of Mr. Trump’s past word choices, attributing moral equivalence to him and Hillary Clinton is utterly absurd. One of the candidates is a career business man who has risked his own wealth to create hundreds of thousands of jobs and opportunities for others. He is also the candidate who appears that he is not beholden to corporate interests or global organizations. His stated goal is to “make America great again.” He proposes to accomplish this goal by: protecting and defending our sovereign borders, rebuilding and strengthening our military, creating economic growth by lowering taxes and decreasing regulations, protecting and defending the inalienable right to life, and appointing conservative pro-life judges. On the other hand, the other candidate is a long-time admirer of Saul Alynsky, whose book “Rules for Radicals” was literally dedicated to Lucifer. This candidate is also a Margaret Sanger Award recipient and says, “I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision. I am really in awe of her, there are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life”. Furthermore, Hillary has committed numerous acts of treason as Secretary of State and she despises our military, vets, Evangelicals and Catholics, Israel and average “everyday working Americans” in general. She has also pledged, if elected, to continue to implement and expand upon the illegal, immoral and anti-Constitutional policies of the Obama Administration, and she vows to accomplish these things by: • increasing taxes and regulations. • appointing radical leftist judges in the mold of Ruth Bader-Ginsberg. • increasing immigration of "refugees" (Muslims) by 500%. • advancing the radical LGBTQ Rainbow Jihad Agenda. • entering into globalist military, trade, and environmental treaties that destroy American sovereignty, economic freedom, and individual liberty. • keeping infanticide via tax-funded abortion on demand “legal,” including partial birth abortion. • implementing “hate crimes” legislation that would criminalize Christianity and the Bible. • abolishing the Second Amendment via executive orders and gun confiscation. The distinctions between the candidates could not be any more stark. Hillary Clinton is a Democrat-Socialist globalist who dreams of a world without borders and whose own “Clinton Foundation” has literally raised over a quarter of a billion dollars from numerous Muslim nations. Many of these Muslim nations seek our nation’s destruction, to enslave women, and to prosecute, imprison and kill gays. She is not for us. She is against us. Donald Trump, with all his warts, is a successful business man and proud nationalist. He is also a man that the political and media globalist elites despise. He is clearly for us. That being said, while I admire many platforms upon which Mr. Trump stands - and the anti-establishment, anti-statist movement he has come to largely represent - I do wish his views were more developed in other areas. For example, even though Mr. Trump has claimed to be “pro-life” and that he will appoint “pro-life judges,” I don’t think based on his public statements, he understands that as chief law enforcement officer he would have the moral, legal and constitutional obligation to ignore/reject the illegitimate and legally null and void Roe v. Wade opinion. Conversely, a President Trump would also be required to enforce the God given right to life in all individual states that currently fail to do so. This move would be in accordance with the imperative requirements of the 5th and 14th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. Those amendments necessitate that no person can be deprived of their life by any state without “due process” and “equal protection” of the laws. Fortunately, however, many of Trump’s close supporters and allies, such as Governor Mike Huckabee, understand that the courts are not allowed to make law and that they aren’t the Supreme Being. To this end, during the primaries Governor Huckabee pledged to reject Roe, invoke the 5th and 14th Amendments, and end the Abortion Holocaust in America as his first official act as president. My hope is that Huckabee and others can influence President Trump to take similar action as president. Additionally, I hope Huckabee, and many others like him, can help guide Mr. Trump to better understand and ultimately reject Judicial Supremacy - the toxic liberal lie that the legislative and executive branches must obey the judicial branch no matter how wicked, immoral, illegal and unconstitutional their opinions may be. Barring any potential orchestrated “false flag” event prior to the election or swearing in ceremony, only one of the two candidates, Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Trump, will occupy the White House in 2017. The choice, as it has always been, is between two imperfect candidates. America is on life support. Electing Hillary Clinton will only ensure that the patient is taken off life support and dies a quick death. Electing Donald Trump would most likely keep the ventilator plugged in and give the patient (America) the best chance to heal and recover. I cannot in good conscience vote for a “3rd party” candidate. They simply are not viable in the general election. Nor can I merely “not vote at all.” Like it or not, both of those choices result, ultimately, in a vote for Hillary Clinton. I will vote for Donald Trump. And I will pray that the Lord uses this imperfect man to help restore the badly damaged foundations of justice, law, and civil order upon which our nation was founded - the same fundamentals upon which America has rested for over 300 years, even pre-dating our formation as an independent nation.
