Patriotism and an America of Judeo-Christian Values, or Government by Criminal Gangs?
How Not to Betray the Nation You Love
Refusing to vote for the better of 2 presidential candidates allows evil to triumph
Think of the Supreme Court!!!!
IN THE AGE OF OBAMA, AMERICA HAS BECOME HOME TO LARGE NUMBERS OF PEOPLE WHO UNASHAMEDLY OPPOSE HER CORE VALUES. Polls show Millennials now favor socialism over capitalism and are rapidly rejecting Christianity. Many Americans are so broken they rely on legal or illegal mind-altering substances, or embrace total sexual anarchy with all its attendant diseases and other grim consequences, or suffer from a multiplicity of addictions and mental disorders.
We are likewise faced with tens of millions of rudderless, government-dependent, “low-information” Americans, as well as untold additional millions of aliens, legal and illegal, flooding into our country—the vast majority favoring large, liberal-left government, and many with no love for America nor intent to assimilate or adopt her values.
I say “even more chilling” because, while a deluded president can be replaced at the next election, one cannot replace a deluded population so easily.
In the face of all these problems, what can we as Americans do to redeem our country?
Unfortunately, when it comes to engaging politics and culture, including even the simplest and most sacred civic act of all—voting—tens of millions of Americans have already checked out.
A PolitiFact analysis concluded that, in the 2012 presidential election, a staggering 42 percent of evangelical Christians stayed home on Election Day.
Since over 70 percent of Americans self-identify as “Christian” and over 25 percent—one in four—as “evangelical” (or “born-again”), that means we’re talking about tens of millions of Americans. These are people who claim to share the Christian values of the nation’s founders—values treasured by the vast majority of the brave souls who have fought, bled and died to preserve America’s freedoms—and yet can’t find it in themselves to fill out a ballot and vote for the better candidate on Election Day.
Don’t even think of saying “there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties.” Today’s far-left Democrat Party (there are almost no more old-time “moderate Democrats” in Washington) favors laws and policies that depress the economy and destroy jobs, promote the killing of viable, late-term, unborn children and mandate the de facto criminalization of Christianity.
Top Democrats, including Obama, refuse even to name, let alone effectively confront, savage enemies sworn to destroy us, even as they increase their attacks and boast of their quest for nuclear weapons. The Republican Party stands in unified opposition to all this.
If that’s not sobering enough, reflect on the Democrat Party’s candidates who in recent decades were either elected, or nearly elected, president of the United States:
- Bill Clinton, a lifelong, serial sexual predator
- Al Gore, a raving lunatic
- John Kerry, who betrayed his fellow Vietnam vets and his country
- Barack Obama, a deceitful, America-hating, Marxist radical; and now
- Hillary Clinton, the most corrupt person ever to run for the White House
[Hillary Clinton was] accurately described by Pulitzer-winning New York Times columnist and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient William Safire as “a congenital liar.”
How, then, do tens of millions of American Christians justify being AWOL on Election Day?
Their most common rationales:
1) their particular church denomination tells them they are citizens of Heaven” or “not part of this world” and therefore don’t need to vote;
2) they’re so upset by government corruption they feel contaminated just reading and hearing about it;
3) they believe God will determine who leads America without their help;
4) they believe church and state should be “separate”
5) they believe their focus should be the gospel, not politics,
—and finally, underlying all these reasons,
6) they’ve given up hope of any good ever coming out of Washington, regardless of who is elected.
Given a clear choice between life and death, morality and immorality, lawfulness and lawlessness, one would reasonably hope—as Moses did when exhorting the ancient Israelites—God’s people would “choose life.” But many of these non-voters are so disillusioned by the lies and hypocrisy dominating politics they have given up hope and walked away.
Add to this another bizarre reality overshadowing the November 2016 presidential election: A disturbing number of voters who readily acknowledge the obvious—that America is on the brink of catastrophe and would do far better under Trump, Pence and their team of conservatives, Christians, capitalists and generals, than under the Clintons, Kaine and their team of progressives, Marxists, Muslim Brotherhood operatives and other assorted radicals and crooks—nevertheless claim they will not, indeed cannot, vote for either major-party candidate as a matter of principle.
President Abraham Lincoln, reflecting on the bold American experiment, famously observed, “As a nation of freemen we must live through all time or die by suicide.”
How ironic that, if we as an electorate return the notorious Clinton crime family to the White House to complete Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America,” thereby bequeathing to our children a starkly different country than the blessed one we inherited, it will have been by our own hand.
That’s right. The responsibility for our nation’s suicide will not fall alone on all the brainwashed “feel-the-Bern” youthful socialists or the newly enfranchised immigrants and felons who overwhelmingly vote Democrat or the various minority groups to which Hillary Clinton shamelessly panders in pursuit of their support.
No, the blame will fall equally on all the righteous “Never-Trumpers,” on “my-guy-didn’t-win-in-the-primary-so-I’m-staying-home” Republican voters, on “Yes-I-signed-the-pledge-but-I’m-breaking-it-because-Trump-was-mean-to-my-wife/father/brother” GOP primary candidates, on “I-serve-another-kingdom-not-of-this-world” and “I -care-only-about-the-gospel” Christians, on “I-don’t-like-Trump-or -Hillary-so-I’m-voting-for-the-weird-pro-marijuana-Libertarian-guy” folks.
In other words, the blame will fall on good people whose ego, resentment and self-righteousness tricked them into betraying their country—all the while believing they were standing strong on principle.
