It’s time for another political thread. There are (at last count) 154 comments on The Two Donald Trumps, and it is just becoming too difficult to keep track of the discussion. There don’t seem to be any new articles coming forth (because of fear induced by the new rules?) and so, at the risk of being chastised, I am offering a new political post, and I’m probably not saying anything new.
On the one hand, Trump is a braggadocious blowhard. On the other, he is so, but not totally without reason; the does guy have considerable accomplishments in business. He has done so by taking full advantage of the rules – whether you like those rules or not. I have not seen any evidence that he has broken laws. Because there has been no evidence forthcoming, I can very reasonably come to the conclusion that he hasn’t broken any. If he had, it would have been front page, above the fold, and in “end-of-the-world” newspaper typeface for the past year and a half.
Hilary is a criminal, an unindicted and (if she is elected) an unindictable criminal; but a criminal non-the-less. Everybody who isn’t mentally retarded knows it. The sad, deplorable, and unescapable truth is, half of us, don’t care.
This election isn’t about The Donald vs. The Witch Queen. It’s about us.
If Hillary wins, she and her entire criminal enterprise will have gotten away with it.
Having gotten away with it, do you honestly believe there will be any restraint on, not just her, but the entire leftist agenda? Do you honestly believe that the republicans will stand against her in any meaningful way? Do you honestly believe that her further – if not total – destruction of anything good left in America, will so disgust the public, that a new, improved, republican candidate will, in four years, usher in the promised land on a landslide? If so, then you have too much misplaced faith in the non-existent “goodness” of man. When the likes of a wicked woman, such as Hillary, can say with a straight face, “America is great, because America is good!” you can be sure of one thing – America is no longer good.
I was unimpressed with Col. Ralph Peters’ assessment of Hillary being the safer choice. He may be “no raging leftist,” but his repetition of the shibboleth of Putin and Trump being a palsy-walsy, mutual admiration society, reveals his true bent. He may be smarter than me, and I’m sure he has more expertise than I do; but frankly, his “argument,” to me, sounds idiotic.
If Trump wins, he may or may not keep his campaign promises. He may do a complete 180, and become the darling of the regressive left. (I don’t really think that, but I must admit it to be a possibility.) The important thing is that he will not have been elected on the promises he has broken, but on the promises he has made. It will show that the majority of people in this country want to change direction.
If Hillary wins, that the majority of Americans are just fine with the satanic turn that the powers that be have taken, bodes ill for the United States of America. The reason we are in trouble is because we have allowed it. Good men haven’t done enough. Good men have allowed evil men too much latitude.
I worry that we might be on the verge of another civil war. I also worry that there will be no civil war, that we will just accept the slide into the cesspit, and call it inevitable. Should Trump pull out a victory, I’m afraid of accepting the (possible) reprieve, and sit back and relax for four years. If Hillary wins (and that seems the more likely outcome) I’m afraid of hunkering down and hiding. Both reactions are cowardly; neither reaction is Godly. Whatever the outcome, the proper and Godly reaction is to be bold in proclaiming the truth and preaching the Gospel.
May God Almighty have mercy on us!
