Every right-wing, conservative, Christian in America is praying for hope and change in 2016. No, not the fundamental transformation of the United States, but a return to the laws already in place that have not been enforced. What a difference it would make if they would be.
There are a cast of thousands with their respective hats in the ring. I’m not here to tell anyone who to vote for (like you’d listen if I tried), but I’m going to try to point one blatantly obvious fact out for you, just in case you missed it.
I hope Trump will continue to run under the Republican ticket. If he runs under a 3rd party it will divide Republicans – split the party wide open! This not only makes me nervous going forward, but it assures that we will lose the 2016 election. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Split the Republican party? Yep – and it would leave the Democrats laughing at us… saying, “divide and conquer!” It’d be awful if the Republicans were divided. We need to remain united. I pray we do.
In a prideful and arrogant tone, he says he does not pray to God for guidance. He speaks with great candor which is refreshing, however, he lacks any sort of filter (certainly not a Holy Ghost brand of filter), and that concerns me greatly.
Why does it matter? It matters because no man should consider himself more intelligent than his maker. If he does not seek advice from a higher power, then he obviously thinks he IS the higher power and knows all.
He’s mistaken. I’m not trying to be ugly. Actually I’m being just as tactful as I can be… but the fact is, he is mistaken. We need God in America again… and in order to get God and His principles back in America, it would make perfect sense in my brain that a Christian should hold the office of president. Ya think???
Regardless of his economic status, perhaps he does not realize the true scope of the problem. No one should go around putting down their competition, boasting about how much better they are. The last time I saw that kind of campaign, I was in elementary school. I was running for a seat on safety patrol and my competitor told everyone that I stole Twinkies from the coat room from other lunch boxes during lunch hour.
That was totally bogus… my mom always packed a great lunch with my own Twinkie! It was immature, but we were kids, so… And yeah – I lost. LOL. I survived.
If he really cared about the Republican party, he’d back off and cool it. Will he run under a new ticket? If that happens – we’re sunk. Honestly, our party needs to get its collective act together. I’m both mad and sad…
I have no other candidate to endorse at this point, but… there are some fine Christian Republican candidates running… ones who would lean on God for guidance.
As you contemplate the candidates, always remember that this is all God’s perfect timing, not ours. In His time all things will be made known. In His time we will be taken to heaven. Remember to always keep Christ before you.
I want to encourage you not to choose a candidate to back with feelings of frustration alone. Please pray about who you will vote for – I mean really pray about it. Our country is at a crossroads – we need to get this RIGHT! May God help each one of us as we do our part to regain what dignity for America we can. 🙂
