Ok I said it, go ahead and shoot me.
I am pleased we don’t have Hillary, I am pleased that the Trump I saw during the Republican primaries is not the Trump I see now. Infact, everything he has done so far has been great, really really great…..
It’s just the fact, I’m not stupid.
I cant forget the mess of never having a policy position before and all the inconsistent promises he made during the Primary – other then the promise “I can change into anything I want”.
I cant help at notice, everything I like about Trump he has done already very early in his presidency, how much is left for him in the next 4-8 years?
mixed in with all this wonderful domestic policy – he manages to always work in growing the Military Industrial Complex… This talk of “Alt-Right” I find very laughable, because I know it’s just a new name for ‘Neocon’.
I also know everything Trump has done thus far will change with the next president. Executive order, and vetoing executive orders – is finiky buisness, there is no permanence. I’m glad were not going to kill ourselves as a nation yet, but I’m just watching the Democrats becoming more radicalized before my very eyes. Just how radical they will be in the next 2 cycles, I have no idea. That’s what scares me most. I see very plainly what they have already become.
Needless to say….
I’m just not a populist person. I can not just go along with the herd.. There are days I wish I could just shut my brain down and blindly go along with the program…. but I cant.
I like trump, but I wasn’t born yesterday.
So here I am like everyone else in the aftermath of the civil war that was the election. Like the end of every war, the victors are feeding off the tears and blood of the losers. and the losers are wagging in a few last stands before their inevitable demise.
But I want to look at the left a moment a bit critically. They are rather interesting, especially if you understand something about psychology. They are displaying all the symptoms of Cognitive Dissonance.
Those on the left never engaged anyone outside of the left. They isolated themselves only with people who agree with them, and promoted with each other out of touch ideals about the world…. In their own minds, they assumed for so long that everyone obviously just agrees with them. So within their own circles, they created their own little reality that never went unchallenged by someone who disagrees… and indeed it often shows, just on facebook – they are not use to people disagreeing with them, they don’t even know how to comeback with anything other then insults, like children.
Now Trump wins the election. and look at the left riot, insult people, burn buildings, crying in streets. Shocked and stunned to learn that there is actually a lot of gay republicans out there saying ‘Democrats don’t represent me’…. They are confronted with the simple fact for the first time, in a long time, beyond any shadow of a doubt that their ideas… are all wrong. :-O Their entire world view is just a popped bubble :-O
Everything were seeing with the left is what happens when a person faces Cognitive Dissonance. Irrational angry behavior of people powerless to confront the truth even while looking at the face of it.
On this wide scale case of Cognitive Dissonance were seeing another trend within the Democratic party called ‘De-alignment’. (That is a very bad word in politics)… The party is a sinking ship. Conservative democrats are starting to re think their progressive leaders. Meanwhile the progressive leaders are growing even more insane then they ever were before. So what happens in De-Alignment is there’s a huge divide between the party leaders and the base. The more detached the leaders become, the more they shake off life long supporters.
Unfortunately with the Democratic party, this divide has actually been there a long time, it’s only become noticeable to many democrats once the bubble was popped. Unfortunately the party is not in position to realign – the leaders are too detached from everyday people and they are established in their positions for some time to come….
It will be a long time until we see the democratic party make a comeback. The only thing Republicans have to do is maintain the ability to be “the lesser of 2 evils”, speaking only to the peoples plain reason.
So That’s the Democrats….
Im sitting here watching the aftermath of Trump winning the election. Some are rioting, others celebrating – the media scrambling to find a new spin or story…. People telling me “They were with trump from the start” as if that’s a badge of honor… In this insanity I feel compelled to gather my own thoughts, though I said I wasnt going to write about the elections anymore. I’ll break that rule but just this once.
I am happy Hillary is gone – That woman was more wicked then Jezebel with the wicked witch in the wild wild west! And to her supporters, Frankly I have no sympathy. You were sheep lined up for the slaughter if she had won. I know because you just don’t seem to have been paying attention to much ado with anything – other then the fact a woman was running for president…. Its the height of superficiality – and frankly you should be grateful you were saved and didn’t even know how.
I’m still disappointed in Trump. Really Republicans could have done better, and perhaps I really should correct myself in the same paragraph. I’m not worried about Trump himself, nor do I dislike him himself- Im looking at the people he is surrounding himself with as advisors. My concern is he is a very malleable person with no set ideas on much ado with anything – just how likely is he to fall for anything by his council? Chris Christie is the perfect poster child of his team. Such an individual weasels his way into this presidency with the worst of bush era ideals like the TSA, and nation building BS countries… Pence (Trumps VP) oh sure hes conservative on domestic policy – Foriegn Policy however he is most certainly a Neocon Imperialist as well…. Trump has surrounded himself with the extreme dark forces of the republican party, yet I suspect he did so unintentionally….. And I really do mean unintentionally, just seeing how they got into his circle.. But anyway, I wont digress where I can go on and on about….
I am ultimately happy Trump won, despite his neocon team of so called ‘experts’. He is one to ignore his inner circle and look to the people’s opinions. He is also, believe it or not, one of the most anti nation building candidates. We will defeat ISIS and possibly bury the cold war hatchet with Russia in the process. Our interests abroad will fade as we focus more on our own interests. I will be interested in who he picks for supreme court. I have no idea what he will do with healthcare reforms, I know it had better not be single payer as he himself once said. I have no idea what he’ll do with immigration, and frankly its a non-issue to me anyway, but I think I follow his general direction and it seems fair and balanced. There are many unknowns, many possibilities and I can plainly see Trump has the potential of being an excellent president despite some or many of my reserves.
IF IT were Different…
I cant help at feeling remissed of what I might say if Hillary won…. and Indeed I thought for a long time she would. I was scared, I really was. The woman was sheer evil – if anything the whore of Babylon herself in the flesh…. Im still scared of the fact this election was as close as it was – watching people riot – most of whom, refuse to be educated on anything, not concerned or aware of just how evil Hillary actually is…. They will be here still in future elections im quite sure, nor is any of this insanity over with….
If Hillary had won the best I could say is my first choice Ted Cruz, would have had a golden chance in 2020. The government would have been completely stagnant under her leadership as no one in the senate or congress would agree on much of anything from her. Perhaps it is likely, even a SCOTUS judge wouldn’t get through under her. Though despite this she would still have the authority to do a great deal of damage – I dont really think there would be a 2020 election where we could recover. ISIS would be ‘monitored’ and ‘negotiated’ with, meanwhile we would create tensions with Russia and perhaps even a full on war. Whilst with all this wonderful ‘negotiating’ with isis, we would have gotten another obamacare while importing and covering terrorists threats from syria’s health plan. “Nation building” Dear god, Ron Paul even called it, that was very much in the subtext of her campaign – particularly when she was talking about ‘Overthrowing Asad to stabilize the region’… I could not be anymore opposed to this woman on any issue politically speaking, Not even mentioning the fact she belongs in jail.
If things were different, this article would look very different indeed….
The Hand of God Saved America
I’m hearing this a lot from Trump supporters… yet I am reminded the Hand of God can also be judgement not just salvation. Often God judges nations by handing people over to their own desires – those saying this, I have often found guilty of Idolizing Trump. Perhaps in that, they are more dangerous to America then the people out there rioting right now. I am only comforted by the familiar feeling that I know comes to me from heaven – that I did, to the best of my ability, advocate the best possible candidate for this country. Knowing the issues, understanding how government works, taking all things into account and not following someone so blindly as the populace of a corrupt people. Though unsuccessful, neither was Jeremiah. This nation that I love so much, I realize is temporary and not exempt from the ruler of this world. My true home is in heaven and with that comes a degree of detachment from my surroundings. If it is the fate of this country to be destroyed, either by the insanity of the left or the fear mongering of the right- then so be it. as it becomes a nation I can not stand to be apart of. I can barely stomach the fact the constitution itself (our nations compass) seems irrelevant in all this commotion.
This will be my last ever political post on my views. I’ve said all I’m going to say about this election cycle.
“When God Wants to Judge a Nation He Gives Them Wicked Rulers” – John Calvin
After Being in the Cruz camp for the Republican Primary, all I ever hear after Ted Cruz dropped out… (Come to think of it, even before Cruz dropped out)… All I ever hear from the trumpsters was:
“A vote for anyone besides Trump is a Vote for Hillary.”
I’ve heard this so much so, I swear it’s like going to a freaking parrot store….
The fact is, I will likely be going with the Constitution Party candidate Darrell Castle this election. I have yet to hear any substinent answer from any trump supporter as to “why I should vote for Trump”. I have yet to hear anything even at all from Trump himself which says I should…. Ok I have actually sat down with Trump videos and over viewing his policies and xyz TRYING to like the guy or find even some small reason to sway me… the fact is I can’t, and his followers really are a terrible asset to their fearless leaders campaign. All they have are threats… I mean:
“If you vote for Castle Hillary will win”
“Hillary will destroy America”
“You don’t belong in this country, get the f$@ out if you don’t vote for trump”…
Let me just tell all the trumpsters of the world something. First and foremost, I am saved by christ, there is nothing in this world that worries me as I have the gift of eternal life. Frankly I’ve looked around, this world has nothing in comparison to Christ’s promise of eternal life in the new heaven and new earth. What can man… or Hillary… do to me?
Second, I’m not convinced Trump is all that different from hillary… He’s advocated for socialized medicine, he only wants to lessen TPP not get rid of it, His tax plan has already been negotiated to increase – he isn’t even president yet and all I see is this alleged ‘flat tax’ go up and up and up…. Immigration honestly not really a chef concern to me, he can’t even get that policy straightened out, not even to his own satisfaction… and really he tossed his own base support under the bus with it. His integrity is appalling, he treats everyone like shit, his EGO is unbearably unrelenting to the point I can’t see myself having to listen to him for 4 years….
Then there is the Bernie Sanders people
Can I just say, I was very surprised when I looked into the dilemma on the other side of the political spectrum.
They get the same jive too:
Suddenly I have tremendous respect for the far left of this country. We’ve spoken before on several issues, and I’ve often found we completely agree on just about what is all the problems – however both of us have very different solutions…. In that I’ve often found Bernie people to be very easy to get along with as we both can easily see were both trying to the best of our understanding to actually fix this country. We are both frustrated with the same people trying to maintain the status quo and make it sound somehow different. Well its not different, And we’re both ready for an outright revolution.
In regards to Jill Stien herself, I maintain she isn’t my taste for change as I’ve said in another article… However I agree with her 100% on the fact the 2 party system is a disaster that must be taken down. In the Tea Party we have a saying:
“I WILL NOT COMPLY”!
I will not choose between red team or blue team anymore…. I can’t in good conscience lie and say “Trump is better then hillary”, as I have seen no evidence to suggest it… I have done it before for Romney and frankly I couldn’t help at chock whilst I did so. If anyone wants my vote from this point on, I had better hear 3 things as central and uncompromising to their platform:
1. Follow The Constitution in the spirit the founders intended it…. A key word here being “Limited Government”
2. Free market capitalism.
3. Noninterventional foreign policy the specifically conflicts with Zionist Christian and/or Neo Conservative ideology.
Am I reaching for the stars? Is that really too much? Is my list of 3 little things too complicated or hard to understand?
I should hope not, my standards should be the BASIC goal of every liberty loving American…
As for this threat “Hillary will Win”.
As I’ve already said, my soul is prepared for anything this world can throw at me… including Hillary as president. Thank you for your concern, but I would like to point out more important facts:
1. God promises us tribulations… this world, even America, is guaranteed to be a wicked and vile place that only gets worse and worse…. Your not telling me something I don’t already know to expect with Hillary, or for the matter Trump – and surely anyone coming next round after them.
2. Hillary is merely the product of her donor… I would also go as far to say Trump is a plant in the Republican party, he is deliberately sabotaging Hillary’s opposition. If by some miracle trump actually won the white house, he will be a complete puppet to all his corrupt advisors with their own agendas… He is completely Mailable, a piece of clay screaming “Mold me into whatever you want me to be”. It doesn’t help his first instinct is always often very liberal either
3. A Hillary presidency will be a disaster… Infact it will be such a disaster I’m betting if she won, the democratic party will have no future hope of ever winning an election for quite some time. If Trump won, republicans will never be able to recover, and there’s no way we could get someone else in for 2020…. The game here is counting on the other team to loose by winning…
4. Hillary won’t be able to work with Congress or the house, the government will be very stagnant…. I like a stagnant government. I see what they do when their busy and frankly we could use a good long government shut down or 20 in this country. They’ve done enough damage as it is.
5. No longer will our politics be chosen for us. It’s just over the years I’ve seen the primaries, I’ve seen the way the media spins things, tweeks polls, the RNC and DNC change rules, and so much else to pump up their chosen candidate…. Frankly they need to come down off their high horse, and the only way to do that is give atleast the republican party a disastrous loss in what should be an easy Republican Election…. apparently Romney wasn’t enough, they need a second blow to figure out the constitution says it’s about the People not the establishment…. even more pressing is the People need to figure out it’s about them as well.
What is sad is, my 5 things I can say for a hillary win, is 5 things more then I can say I support trump on… literally the man has nothing to offer a Christian or a Conservative. Infact It doesn’t help he himself told us:
“I don’t need the conservative base, if they don’t want to vote for me it’s fine, we don’t need them”
The Republican party has gone in the way of the Whigs tossing their conservative base out with a guy like Filmore… I mean Trump…. sad. Excuse me for saying so but:
Let’s see who do we vote for…. Jeezabel or Ahab? Beelzebub or Lucifer? The beast of the sea or the best of the earth? Allah or Krishna? Which is the lesser of 2 evils I wonder…. Oh look there’s another choice, Darrell Castle 😀
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:—”I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
-Article II, Section One, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution
The United states constitution is perhaps the most easiest legal document to read, yet also the most important one of them all. The above quote is the oath of the president of the United states must take before entering in accordance to the constitution… Literally article 2 is about as long and comprehensive as “Green Eggs and Ham” yet it describes the role of the president. In the very oath we see the summary of his entire role- Protect and defend the Constitution”
That does not include:
Red light cameras
Taxes on imported doughnuts from switzerland
None of these things have anything to do with the president…. Also, you may have noticed everyone running for president builds their entire campaign on atleast one or 4 of these things… Yet you may have noticed they often fall short on their campaign promises… Simply put it’s because whenever a presidential candidate is running on social issues they are lieing. They know full well they can not do xyz, because it’s outside their jurisdiction. XY and Z is in the states jurisdiction – of which they have no control over.
Don’t be mad at the candidate… the person to blame is the people, we have effectively created a sort of Democratic Imperialistic Oligarchy by our own ignorance of this fact.
is a form of power structure in which power effectively rests with a small number of people. These people might be distinguished by royalty, wealth, family ties, education, corporate, religious or military control. Such states are often controlled by a few prominent families who typically pass their influence from one generation to the next, but inheritance is not anecessary condition for the application of this term.
In a Democratic Oligarchy, such as what is seen today in many countries across Africa, you can vote for your dictator. He then has little to none separation of authority and so can do pretty much whatever he wants. Normally in such situations, the candidate in question is set up in an election where even when he looses he wins because he’s well connected with the competing candidate…. If this sounds like Trump and Hillary to you then I probably don’t need to post this picture, but I will anyway…
What we need to really do is take a step back, confront this issue and ask ourselves “How did we become an oligarchy”
It begins with social issues, and understanding the constitution. I would say it began with Lincoln and the civil war…. Now I’m sure we all agree slavery was bad. Even people waving the Confederate flag in the south agree it was bad. However, the issue of slavery strictly speaking was a social issue and central to the civil war. The fact that the federal government, president no less, would wage a war against its own states to impose a social law – is in direct violation of states rights… In fact it was the very first time the federal government overstepped itself…
What the civil war left us with was a bunch of laws that allowed the federal government to have more authority over state laws…. That is the pivotal moment, however well intentioned, when America began its downhill spiral into an oligarchy… It only took 1 inch that lead on to a mile, then a thousand miles…. Here we are today viewing the potential president as “solver of all our everyday problems“.
The whole of the constitution is about 2 things
1. Separation of Authority
3. The Role of the Government
2nd is very easy so excuse me for starting there.
Property as defined by Thomas Jefferson is every thing in the bill of rights. Including, just as an example of what might seem like a social issue, Freedom of Religion. The reason for such is the founders view was a man’s conscience is his property, the same as owning a house, business or newspaper… In their view, and hopefully yours, however you worship God or not at all its fine as far as the government is concerned as you are doing so by your own conscience. Therefore religion is your personal property, and therefore protected. So you see, the constitution has not 1 ounce of social issues with in it.
To tackle the 1st part “separation of authority” you have to understand the 3rd, the Role of the government.
The Federal Government as defined by the constitution is:
1. Protect property
2. Settle disputes and contracts between individuals.
3. Protect the citizens, either from each other or foreign enemies abroad.
That is it. Nothing else.
In order to achieve that simplicity we finally come to separation of authority. The layout is very simple.
The reason the constitution separates authority is to prevent this from happening
By an alphabet soup full of acronyms and pool of private corporations, the president may abuse his authority in anyway he pleases whilst subverting the constitution entirely. Congress and the Senate are essentially useless and the President becomes a mechanism for our Democratic Imperialist Oligarch.
Let me talk about “Imperialism” for just a minute…
a policy of extending a country’s power and influence through diplomacy or military force
As the world’s leading police force, yes I do mean in every sense America is a Democratic Imperialist Oligarch.
It’s our own fault, welcome to the New American Century.
In my mind how I translate that:
“We are going to build a brand new house without a foundation. If you don’t want to be apart of it, then get out of our way”.
The thing is, she’s right, the constitution is pretty well eroded to the point any novice lawyer could ice skate all over it. We don’t have it anymore, and it’s a hard long road getting it back – It doesn’t help if no one has an interest either… But to me it’s beginning to look like we Americans are all on board the Titanic. We know the ship is sinking, and the captain who steered it into an iceberg jumped ship. Many of us are standing around arguing who’s going to be the next captain, instead of looking for a life boat. To be honest I’d rather look for a life boat then sit around here watching these people argue over nothing. Sure thing, I’ll take your advice trumpster, you take all the space you need to build your house that will inevitably fall apart. Your absolutely right, this is a whole new country now and you most certainly can have it and the “New American Century”. (you should Google that, btw)
I’ve always had an interest in living on a boat. I’ve often considered before selling all my stuff and downsizing to a 32 to 42 ft catamaran sail boat… Maybe It’s not so crazy anymore to actually pursue..
Here’s the seller… politically speaking. International waters are not subject to any law or citizenship status. That means whatever Trump or Hillary does to what’s left for the old America i know and love. I will not have any part of it, while living on my boat fishing. There is no jurisdiction whatsoever just 5 miles off shore other then “Peaceful passage” laws.. This is not limited to the American shoreline, but all over the world. The law amounts to; 1. Don’t be a pirate hijacking ships. 2. Don’t attack the coast guard, 3. Don’t bring a nuclear warhead with you. 4. Don’t be a terrorist or foreign army with intent to land.
I myself am pretty sure I can handle that… Arrggg
Yes the state of the union is that bad. I have heard of people talking about going to canada, aulstralia, and all kinds of places abroad… The thing is, I just can’t deal with people anymore, and all these countries have some pretty bad shortcomings themselves… I would be better off with the devil I know if I were to stay on dry land… IF, mind you… Plus in a boat I can work on my tan.. no bills.. no bs.. less traffic…. Just trade fish for the money I need to fix up my boat, otherwise I’m not coming back to shore…
Well that’s how that idea started years ago. BUT then I found this plan for 2020… A Beautiful Shining City on the Sea:
If/when this is built, I won’t have to come to shore even to trade fish to fix my boat!
The Sea Steading institute is a think tank, founded by Milton Friedman’s grandson, Patri Friedman. Unlike most think tanks, Instead of thinking of ways to lobby the government, their focus is exclusively how to homestead the high sea. Friedman tells us his vision is to come back to the early original american pioneer spirit with unlimited freedom. The city in the video is their model for a freedom loving society… Which perhaps will be the only one in the world that’s left. No taxes, no roads, and if you don’t like your neighbors you can always move and take your house and yard with you 🙂
Now in this city its built via platforms. These platforms are as steady as a table out on water you can build sky scrappers on top of them or small houses with yards. the wave breaker adds extra security… In effect the city is safer in hurricane then a coastal town, believe it or not. The platforms are designed after lighthouses and oil rigs built in the high seas already… So this is all actually an existing and time tested technology.
As for myself I’m pretty solid on getting a catamaran sailboat. The platform idea sounds great, but I just want a lot more mobility to get around. I may not even stay in the city very long at a time… I’m just glad knowing that is a resource available to me if I need it.
So if your tired of the Democrats digging into your wallet and Republicans making sure your complacent with the state. Hillary’s emails and Trump making an ass of himself on a daily bases on national television…. Sea Steading might sound like a viable alternative to you.
It seems I’m best suited for Darrell Castle of the constitution party. 🙂
However, as an informed voter, I would be remissed if I didn’t explain my results for this highly sophisticated test. To do this, I will go through each candidate one by one.
Frankly I’m not sure how I got 81% for Trump, well I do – since all his good ideas came from Ted Cruz. It comes at no surprise he has already backslided on every one of his policies during the primaries. So excuse me for correcting the test and just saying 0%. He doesn’t have any policies other then a magical wall nobody will pay for…. even that isn’t enough to sell my soul for.
I’m not even convinced he’s a Republican, whilst all he ever does is attack other Republicans. He particularly attacks those whom are very respectable leaders whom have consistently fought the establishment…. Then there is his attacks on Ted Cruz, making him that much more evil incarnate. Frankly, he hasn’t taken anytime at all to fight his so called biggest foe Hillary Clinton. Considering his donations to Clinton, I do wear my tin foil hat proudly thinking he is purposely sabotaging the Republican party to get her elected…. Atleast that is what the evidence seems to conclude about him. No thanks, what he’s selling I’m not buying. No worries though, we will get to that evil witch in a minute..
Really I’m quite sold just on the name “Constitution Party”. The rest for the most part, his platform and ideals, really sit well with me. I have heard some controversy as him being a birther and not standing with Israel… upon review of these claims for myself, it’s simply not true… Personally I have always been a Non interventionalist, the critique of that ideology from Neocons and lobbyst has always been “so you don’t believe America should send military aid to Israel”… I’ve heard it plenty before and I can see Castle has heard it too. ‘Non interventionalism’ doesn’t mean we don’t send military aid to our allies, it simply means we don’t involve ourselves with nation building and taking an active role in our allies policies. YES Israel gets all the military aid when needed along with any of America’s allies in this school of thought. What isn’t included is being the world’s police man, or toppling dictators like Sadam hussein or Bashar AL Asad, in order to turn countries like Syria into Switzerland….
Frankly what I disagree with castle on is things like gay marriage – but honestly it was the same thing I sorta disagreed with Ted cruz on. Neither of these 2 seem to have interest in actively perusing the nuanced social issues. I do however agree the constitution should be upheld above all else, and things like gay marriage is no exception to the first amendment. Which leads me to the next guy.
Gary gets a lot of his support from people who did not watch the libertarian debates. He is simply the devil they don’t know… However I did watch those debates, my reasons for saying he is a complete sellout are many.
First he believes the constitution is subjective, religion in his own words is a “Black Hole”. Second, He also believes conservatives are stupid and don’t care at all about social issues like Abortion. Third, he’s not even a libertarian – he’s a complete and total dork to be honest.
How he even won the libertarian party nomination against guys like Austin Petersen or John McAfee is a complete mystery… Really, I’m surprised in just how much I actually really liked John McAfee – Though Petersen was just about perfect for me. McAfee was a bit weird, Petersen a bit condescending – but they actually believed firmly in their own parties principles, unlike this Moderate Republican. Even more elusive is both of them were polling so much higher then Johnson in the libertarian party. The delegates however tossed the people they represent completely under the bridge.
In this election The libertarian party had a real chance to win over and unite Conservatives and Sanders supporters – yet they tossed it away on a guy who might as well be another “Kaisch”…. a big fat RINO. I can’t vote for Jhonson, I think it’s a tragedy the libertarian party went the direction they went.
31% might be very misleading for Jill stein on my test, actually I like her better then Johnson. I do!
As a conservative it might be expected I don’t care about environmentalism, the truth is I do, I just don’t think it’s the government’s place to try to fix it. What I like about Jill stein is she agrees with that position. She is also very grounded in the constitution. She is even a strong libertarian voice greater then that of jhonson.
A good deal of what I disagree with her on… well I could respectfully disagree with her on. I know this is a woman who will not try to spoon feed her beliefs to me by using government force. In that, I translate her as a Conservative Democrat rather some kind of malicious threat. Perhaps in a way she echos to me John F. Kennedy. We would get along great if she won…. Not as good as Darrell Castle, but we could get along fine anyway.
If the witch hat and “Bridge 4 sale” thing doesn’t tell you what I think of Hillary Clinton, I don’t know what else would. She is undeniably the wicked witch of the east – Manhattan.
In the 90s as a kid my grandmother told me once:
‘do not ever trust bill Clinton’s wife, one day she will run for president and she will lie, cheat, steel and kill to get there’
How little then did I know my grandmother was a prophet. I have no idea how she knew, because my grandma has long since gone to heaven.
Literally, me and Hillary can only agree on things like:
“The sky is blue” or “plants need water and sunlight”
If that is all 28% is worth… mmm. I just have nothing else to say.
To Conclude this…
Even among hillary supporters… I mean, it’s not that they seem to really believe in her. Most of them just say “we just don’t trust Trump with the nuclear button”. So for them she is the lesser of 2 evils… which for myself I just don’t buy stock into that kind of thinking… Really I’d rather oppose the white house for the next 4 years knowing I voted 3rd party, rather then feed the machine which is bent on enslaving me.
As per trump supporters telling me “a vote for anyone but trump is a vote for Hillary” – please, let me stop you right there.
Hillary is merely the product of her donor. Again I will vote only my conscience. And NO I didn’t need Ted Cruz’s permission to do so – I would have said so with or without his input… just so you know. I do believe my god will hold me accountable even for my vote. In the immortal words of Martin Luther:
“Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason – I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other – my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything. For to go against conscience is neither right nor SAFE!!”
Those words could not seem to be anymore true, then they are now. Atleast other then when Martin Luther was on trial to recant his writings.
No no, 3rd parties are on the ballot. that is a resource that I can, and will, vote for. I actually suspect 2016 will be a great year and bump of support for all 3rd party candidates. Frankly this 2 party monstrosity deserves to be taken down a peg… or 2000.
Glenn Beck pointed this out at an Indiana rally. God is testing this nation and asking us to choose good or evil.
Normally, I myself am rather skeptical of a God annointed candidate. However to contend this primary election has gone this far is pretty convincing given the stark contrast between Cruz and Trump. In New York, our votes for president in a primary hasn’t mattered in over 50 years. In fact my own county GOP office announced in December our vote wouldn’t matter… Yet as things unfolded, it did.
As a Christian I am careful whom I let into my own Christian circles or call a brother or sister in Christ… I’ve just always been that way with really anyone I might even call friend. Personally, Ive always had reserves about Glenn Beck, even throughout the Cruz campaign. I do not associate with people I consider Luke warm, nor for the matter a legalist, I tend to stick with Bible literalist Christians. I know a lot of people, so many more across seas on Facebook. What amazes me is all of them gravitated towards Cruz rather independently, some came quiet unexpectedly. It was maybe last year I observed this phenomenon before where I wrote an article on how suddenly, randomly, and for no reason in particular, all my Christian friends started picking up an interest in protestant reformers. (IClick here for that article)
I submit Ted Cruz as further evidence to this phenomenon, and it is a sign the Holy spirit is still at work and influencing the world. The Cruz movement was as if we were all one mind, one spirit and one voice coming together all across America, and really the whole world. Simultaneously and independently and many cases for no particular rhyme or reason.
I’ve had people in Germany come to me about praying for Cruz. The European media wouldn’t even mention him, yet he still had strong support there too. There were churches in Pakistan, praying for Cruz. India, Japan, Australia…. I’m well aware American elections are very popular abroad, and people like to talk about what we’re doing in the US all the time – but it was very noticeable, almost nowhere abroad did Trump have support like this yet he was the only one ever mentioned besides Hillary or Sanders. In most foreign media outlets, Cruz was basically non existent. In some places they literally edited him out of the gop debate. It says a lot, it really does.
During the primary season, I have spoken with many Trump supporters along the way. Every single one had much in common. Noticeably they were not exactly what I would bring into my Christian circle. Just talking about those who said they were Christian – For starters a good many of them would put Christ together with Gandhi. Others were offended when Cruz won Iowa, that he said; “To God be the Glory”. Then of course there were the legalist Christian’s, many adhered to a wrathful dogma where no one seems to be saved by christ. Sometimes, both of these types of lukewarm Christians were one person – which don’t even get me started.
Here’s the thing, I learned very quick, Trump Christians do not carry the spirit. They are the ones Jesus was talking about in Revelation 3:16 or perhaps Matthew 13: 5-7.
Before anyone starts, I will just say, My standards for discerning a Christian really isn’t all that high. Yet I’m amazed in how many trump supporters professed to me salvation does not come from repentance in christ. Is this not the most basic principle? I am one to talk to people who disagree with me on many issues, in fact I like people who have a well formed opinion other then my own. Not necessarily because I’m inclined to agree most of the time, rather I enjoy the argument to be presented – and perhaps expand my own understanding. What I wont tolerate is when one debates the most basic and ground level principles of Christianity.
America made its choice
What all this boils down to is, for anyone who was paying attention, we are now a divided nation. All the factions have waved their flags in no uncertain terms. I’m not saying Cruz was anointed by god and destined for presidency, I’m just saying god presented a clear choice to separate the chaff from the wheat, and it shows.
Contrary to what might be popular belief. God does not appoint leaders parsè, nor does god judge a nation by fire and brimstone. More often he casts his judgement on nations by handing them over to their own desires. My contention is, and has been for a long time, America is like the Israelites demanding a king in 1 Samuel chapter 8. They want an authoritarian figure to rule over them, not a president. Whats worse, some do not even know the difference between a king and a president.
If by some miracle Trump manages to get support against Hillary, I have no doubt he is the judgement on our country like king Saul was the judgement on Israel. Yet I’m a side more convinced Hillary will actually win that title. It is abundantly clear this the death of the Republican party principles, and America forever – there is no one else to blame but ourselves.
Other then that, I’m not going to sit here and pout about Cruz. I’m not going to yell at Trump supporters. Nor am I going to going to debate with scripture. The purpose of this article is to simply document my experience of what I’ve observed. Some will not believe me when I say, your going to hate what comes next for America.. but really it’s nothing good. I myself will be committing to a good long study into the book of Jeremiah to see what the Lord told him in a similar situation. Though I have a feeling this ends with me moving to Texas and joining in the succession from the union movement.
Then there’s Bernie Sanders supporters… which should tell you everything you need to know.
Here’s what trump is up against. Cruz supporters expect substance not conspiracies. They expect The constitution and nothing but the constitution. They don’t want to hear things like “raise tariffs 45%” or “socialized medicine” nor do they even believe anything Trump says. In fact To Cruz and Bernie supporters, trump is no different then that evil witch Hillary Clinton. He is the 1% self funded lobbyist representing all that is wrong with crony capitalism and the Establishment. Then there is the empty threat “Not voting for trump is a vote for Hillary”…. Hear me now, that doesn’t work either. To gain supporters, Trump is faced with… well a wall. Mexico did not even have to pay for it.
As we speak Cruz supporters are talking about Austin Peterson (Libertarian) as a viable alternative. Some are looking to the constitution party. Some plan on writing in Cruz. Either way, overwhelmingly, there’s a 3rd party growth, and it’s only 11 am the next day!
As we speak Cruz supporters are saying they remain committed to their “Never Trump” commitment, and simply won’t show up in November.
So if Trump plans on winning this election, the name of the game is called “ass kissing”. He might call it “the art of the deal” – either way there’s just too much blood shed to clean up here. Many of us no longer claim the GOP for our party affiliation. The rise of the Tea Party was the first step toward today’s dysfunctional GOP and the acceptance of Trump only solidifies the need to leave.
We were the party who was founded on the belief and struggle to free the slaves and woman should vote. We carried on the belief in Constitutional principals such as Limited Government, reduce spending, and maintaining a free market.
The party died when disenfranchised Democrats infiltrated it to vote in its primaries, for a man who is the absolute worst of liberals. They flocked to him like sheep because he was rich. They believed his lies and conspiracy theories. They did not know anything or care about anything, they only wanted a spoiled brat who told them “Make America Great Again”. Meanwhile every one of his policies were the makings of destroying the country indefinitely. His only interest was himself, and the media of America was all too glade to stroke his ego.
The Republican party had a clear choice asking who are we. Today the party represents repressing woman, socialism, conspiracies and fear mongering, being the loudest ass hole, and secularism. As of now, I have no idea what the future holds, but for the people reading this, it wasn’t always like that. The 2016 primary election was the turning point, that sent the party and America on a hopeless downward spiral. I just want you to know there were many people who tried, we put everything we had into trying to save it. We tried so hard for so long, but Donald Trump supporters would not listen to anything. facts, reason, morals, nothing BUT Trump. They coronated him like a king in the Republican party from the beginning without vetting him for themselves. I’m so sorry.
So since the party is over:
