The upcoming presidential election is very literally the most important election of our time, perhaps the most important election in the history of our country. The book Wake Up America or Die!—YOU Must Save America and the Family includes two chapters devoted to government. One is in the “Undeniable Crisis” section; the other is in the “Awesome Remedy” section. Although written with abundant clarity, neither mentions any specific political party or living politician or candidate.
However, it is no longer possible to escape such specifics. With Hillary Clinton wearing horns and a forked tail, the ongoing controversy over Donald Trump is troublesome and dangerous.
There is a view often stated among university faculty members that, “We must teach the students we have not the students we wish we had.” Donald Trump was not my first choice for a conservative candidate. Nevertheless, the candidates for President of the United States have apparently been reduced to Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Compare the Candidates
Voting is essential. It is an act of worship to protect the God-given freedoms secured by the Declaration of Independence and codified in the United States Constitution. Sitting at home and not voting is absolutely not an option for Judeo-Christian believers. Despite the misgivings of some conservatives and clergy, the bright line contrast between Trump and Clinton could not be greater. Consider as side-by-side comparison:
Donald Trump pledged to restore faith to its level of historical prominence in this country.
Hillary Clinton routinely supports views antagonistic to Judeo-Christian tradition. Her occasional politically correct remarks are overtaken by her actions.
Donald Trump is Prolife. Although he is against abortion, he has supported certain well known exceptions with which many believers, including this writer, would disagree.
Hillary Clinton is pro-death (Prochoice)
Donald Trump supports defunding Planned Parenthood.
Hillary Clinton is demanding substantially even more funding for Planned Parenthood.
Donald Trump pledged to nominated originalist (constitutionalist) justices to the Supreme Court.
Hillary Clinton will nominate the most liberal justices available to the Court.
Donald Trump is committed to aggressively dealing with uncontrolled immigration and border security.
Hillary Clinton is a globalist advocate of a borderless United States and a borderless world.
Donald Trump is committed to aggressively combating terrorism in all forms.
Hillary Clinton is unable to identify the sources of terrorism, beyond perfunctory, politically correct comments following each terrorist attack.
Donald Trump will rebuild the military for the protection of all citizens.
Hillary Clinton will continue to decimate the military.
Donald Trump is committed to “Make America Great Again.”
Hillary Clinton is a globalist committed to taking down America, following Obama’s “fundamental transformation” to make all countries equal.
Donald Trump says, “I refuse to be politically correct.” Political correctness is a movement designed to shut down the Biblical worldview.
Hillary Clinton fully embraces political correctness and all of its nuances.
There are other areas of glaring comparison, but those listed are sufficient for this message.
The greatest American presidents were known for having a noticeably humble spirit, a character trait that often fosters good listening skills. Humility seems to be Donald Trump’s most visible short-coming. But even that attitude is better than Hillary Clinton’s arrogance, sense of supremacy, and infamously harsh treatment of those she encounters and even those within her inner circle.
A vastly overarching sleeper issue is the ability of the President to appoint federal judges. Each President appoints hundreds of federal judges who generally operate under the cloak of media darkness unless the media declares a case to be sufficiently controversial to report.
Many bad judicial decisions stand simply because the resources are not available for successive appeals or the Supreme Court is so avalanched with cases they can only hear a few due to the lack of time. Consequently, a Supreme Court decision not to hear a case can be as important as a decision to hear one.
An out-of-control judiciary was feared by the great Founders of the United States of America. Presidents have the opportunity to greatly influence the federal court system by selecting judges and justices who either support a Originalist view of the Constitution (It is a sacred anchor document that means what it says and can only be changed through the amendment process.) or a post-Constitutional view that claims the Constitution must be treated as a living document, continuously reinterpreted to keep up with the changing times. A so called fluid Constitution is effectively no constitution at all.
Due to political polarization, the power of the president to appoint federal judges has become the most influential and lasting power within the president’s grasp.
Former President Franklin Roosevelt was well known for attempting to pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices. Although he died in 1945, his Supreme Court appointees served until 1975. His appointees, along with liberal justices appointed by Presidents Harry Truman, John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and even Dwight Eisenhower handed down a stream of devastating decisions including rulings that:
- Effectively declared all religions equal and equally subservient to the United States Government. Such a decision effectively replaces God with the federal government.
- Removed prayer from the public schools
- Removed Bible reading from the public schools
- Routinely supported the breakdown of morality in the American Culture.
- Handed down the infamous Roe v. Wade decision
- Supported no-fault divorces
Justices nominated by Hillary Clinton, as president, would continue the stream of devastating Supreme Court rulings “lowlighted” by the now infamous ruling sanctifying same-sex “marriage.” Constitutionalist justices appointed by Donald Trump as president would be a powerful restraint on the Supreme Court and possibly tilt the Court in a conservative Biblical direction.
Restoring America is up to YOU!
