A vote for Trump is a vote to save America

To those who have said they’d stop supporting Donald Trump following revelations of gross comments he made about women 11 years ago, I ask, what kind of country do you want?

Do you want Trump’s vision for America of secure borders, a strong military, empowered individuals who are free to achieve their dreams, and a solid commitment to our fundamental freedoms of religion, speech and self-defense? Or do you want Hillary Clinton’s godless vision of a borderless, vulnerable America that empowers big government at the expense of individual liberty? Because make no mistake: every non-vote for Trump puts Hillary one foot closer to the White House and the end of America as we know it.

It’s understandable to find Trump’s vulgar comments a major turnoff. But less understandable is Christians unwilling to forgive Trump for his un-Christian-like comments, but willing to ignore the greater sin of Hillary Clinton’s blatant anti-Christian views and corruption that endanger us all.

A non-vote for Trump would make president a woman who has repeatedly stated her profound aversion to gun rights. It would grant the honor of the presidency to a woman who put our national security and citizens at risk through her use of a private server for classified information, who lied about it, and then destroyed 33,000 emails after being subpoenaed for them. It would empower Hillary, who is under federal investigation, who has been fired in the past for unethical behavior, and who has publicly declared her “dream” for open borders, despite the criminals, disease, Columbian drug cartel and other evils that such a dream would invite.
A non-vote for Trump would in essence be a thumb’s up for Hillary’s actions as Secretary of State, which were instrumental in destabilizing the Middle East, giving rise to ISIS and other Islamic terrorism around the world. Abandoning Trump would give power to the woman who, in return for favors, accepted millions of dollars to the Clinton foundation from countries who permit “honor killings” of women and outright murder of homosexuals, two groups she claims to defend. Saying no to Trump says yes to the woman awash in constant scandal, lies and corruption, who refused to send help to Americans under attack in Benghazi, who mislead family members about what caused their murders, and who, when questioned about it, testily hissed, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Scrapping Trump would make Hillary president, who promises higher taxes, more job-killing regulations, billions of dollars for bogus “climate change” programs despite our staggering debt, expanded Obamacare, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and the importation of thousands of unvetted refugees from countries like Syria.

But most confounding are those citing moral indignation as their reason for rejecting Trump, when Hillary crudely spurns the most vital moral issues of humanity itself.
Hillary is rabidly pro-abortion, including partial birth abortion up through the ninth month, and, of course, embraces the Democratic Party platform, which has adopted the most pro-abortion platform in its history, including promises to fund abortion nationwide and globally by overturning the Hyde Amendment, repeal state and federal restrictions on abortion, and to crackdown on pro-life sidewalk counselors.

Hillary has mentioned no intention to overturn laws that force nuns helping the elderly poor to violate their religious convictions by providing for mandated contraception and abortifacients. Hillary embraces tyrannical LGBT politics, same-sex "marriage", and fails to condemn the snuffing out of private businesses whose proprietors refuse to partake in the celebration of what God teaches is sin.

Christian expressions in the public square are fundamental to American liberty, but Hillary has said “religious views need to change” regarding moral issues, and said in a 2015 speech that "religious views would not be grounds for objection" to reprehensible things like abortion. 

In Hillary's view, on what grounds would doctors be able to decline committing abortions because of their religious beliefs? This dovetails seamlessly with Hillary's frequent references to her support for our “freedom to worship”, which means nothing more than our right to go to church, but not to practice our faith outside the walls of that church. If that doesn’t give you chills, it should. While Trump may not be the poster boy for Christian morals, he, at least, promises no threats to our Christian freedoms.

Achieving a liberal social agenda requires the demolishing of these Christian freedoms, and how Hillary could accomplish this was made clear in the second presidential debate when she declared she would nominate only Supreme Court justices who uphold her radical leftist ideology. Not once did she mention the Constitution and the Supreme Court’s duty to uphold it. In contrast, Trump’s potential nominees are all committed constitutionalists.

It’s imperative to see the bigger picture. Beyond just Supreme Court justices, the president we elect will select Cabinet members, staff and other high ranking officials to move us toward that candidate’s vision for America. Who do you think will make the better selections? Tuesday's vote is not for merely a presidential candidate. It is for the broader political platform of that candidate's party. We cannot afford to overlook that.

We are all obligated to be good stewards of God’s gifts, and one of the greatest gifts ever bestowed by God is the USA, which has been the greatest force for good and the greatest experiment of individual liberty and prosperity the world has ever known. So we need to decide: Do we want to be good stewards of our country and preserve America, or do we want to relinquish it because we cannot get past the boorish comments of a candidate?

Sitting out the election or leaving the presidential circle blank are not options. Now is not the time for self-righteousness, but for self-sacrifice. We have a country to save from the ruinous, malignant policies of Hillary Clinton. It’s that simple and it’s that serious. Though certainly not perfect, Donald Trump is indeed our best hope for preserving America, and we have a duty to play our part in making that happen.

    If you were bleeding to death and one doctor would definitely make it worse for you and another doctor said there was at least a chance he could save you, would you turn down the doctor that could give you a chance to survive because he had a bad personality? Would you care if he once said terrible comments about anyone? Think about it people. It's not a personality contest. And the Democrats are not the party of the people anymore - they are SOCIALISTS and all that goes with that. Give America a chance. You don't have to like Trump, but if you love America, then you need to be willing to make a self sacrifice and vote for him for the good of the country. This is literally the ONLY chance we have to stop Hillary and all that goes with this lying, arrogant, immoral criminal. Julie is right - it IS that serious.

  4. Julie, what sources do you refer to regularly to get your news and form your opinions? I'm just curious. There are a lot of misstatements of fact in the piece above, so I am wondering how you go about putting your views to the test.

    1. Paul, I have heard Hillary make references to her views on guns, abortion, the Supreme Court, taxes, "climate change" programs, and religion verbally with my own ears, and have heard her deafening silence on defending people like Christian business owners and the Little Sisters of the Poor.

      But please remember my one simple, heartfelt request for family members. It may be unfair but I prefer not to debate family in public forums. Am happy to take this conversation offline if you would like to continue. Thanks very much. Was nice seeing you yesterday. Glad you made it home safely.

  5. how much evidence of this filthy woman do people need? She received the Margaret Sanger award - a woman she praises- for pete's sake!! That should tell us everything we need to know. Even if every other single claim was false (which we know is not the case), we all know her pathological devotion to abortion is no lie. For that reason alone nobody with a conscience would even think of supporting this cruel horrible woman.

    1. I agree, Sarah. Without valuing the sanctity of life, there is nothing Hillary Clinton has to offer. It endangers one's own salvation, in fact, by helping to put her particular brand of evil into office by giving her their vote. Thanks for reading and have a great day.
