#1 Political hit piece.

#2 *yawn* Christians active in Politics for years are very much aware that the current environment affecting us was first planted in the early fights against Abortion: the use of leading terminology in slanted media, biased selection of interviewers and interviewees, selective ignoring of relevant facts and biology, smash-mouth tactics. The Pro-life movement saw this all happening long before the Demoncrats realized the tactics were effective against all Republicans.

Christians recognize, from Scriptures, that God can use sinners to carry out His Will. Many aware Christians liken Trump to Cyrus the Great: someone chosen by God as a tool to promote and further His people on earth while not actually being OF His People.

Demoncrats love to strike a "moral" pose that knowledgeable Christians recognize as fake and unproductive, tending more to words than deeds, and their love of Socialism is an indicator of greed and sloth: Socialism is a system of resource distribution, not of production, and the process of "redistribution" of resources from the makers to the takers by the fakers actually demotivates the producers.

Using fallen human nature to carry out God's will was what motivated the writers of the Constitution (many of whom were good Christians who profoundly believed in the fallen-ness of human nature), so they designed a system where greed checked greed.

For all its failings, the Republicans never advocate mass murder of babies. If its okay for blacks to never vote for anyone who doesn't support their civil rights, Its okay for me to never vote for anyone who supports abortion.

Notice the rumbling of altering the Constitution now the current in the Left's media and talk. For them its all about Power. To the writers of the Constitution, it was about containing power. They accepted the imperfections and checks of their system due to the fallen nature of man which would corrupt anything that permitted the centralization and concentration of power.

#4 Christianity requires you destroy the rule of law and impoverish your entire country to take care of people who bring nothing but habits of dependency, crime, and tropical diseases?

Who knew? I thought the big about not stealing would have ruled out charity-by-force.

#6 If the Left had pooled all the money they've spent to regain power and instead focused on the caravan marchers, think of all the support those 10,000 Central Americans could have been provided without leaving home. It's all about power. Everything else is pretense.

#7 Correct, P2k. The utter genius of the Constitution was that the writers and designers were able to harness the lust for power in all three branches to have them check each other. While they never anticipated the development of political parties while writing it, the design was adaptable enough to handle their appearance. They didn't anticipate Marx and the Uniparty charade, nor did Jefferson anticipate that the media would become a monopolized voice of the Uniparty.

Ironically, the only way to make the Constitution work today is for Christians to fight to get power and thus act as an opposing force, thus the fight to keep Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court.

#8 unfortunately having a Constitution isn't enough
