I try very hard to stay away from purely political posts on here but on the eve of the election I am going to make an exception. I am going to post my opinion, based on the facts I have researched, and I encourage each of you to take the time to research the facts, consider the positions and what is at stake, pray for guidance and then vote.
First off, I believe Donald Trump is a truly detestable individual. He is the opposite of almost everything I try to be and tried to raise my kids to be. However…
His opponent believes unborn children have no rights, not even the right to life. She supports late term and partial birth abortion. Babies born as young as 20 weeks have survived but these children could be killed under his opponent’s administration. So called partial birth abortions, induced labor where the child is delivered breach (legs first) and the spinal column is severed and the baby killed before the head leaves the birth canal so it can still be considered an abortion, would also be supported by his opponent.
His opponent does not believe the Constitution guarantees your right to defend yourself from an attacker. She has stated that the District of Columbia v. Heller, the 2008 case in which the Supreme Court recognized that the Second Amendment protects an individual right to armed self-defense, was “wrongly decided.” She has also repeatedly called for Australian Style Gun Control. Keep in mind that under Australian rules anyone owning a Winchester Rifle designed as far back as 1866 would be illegal.
His opponent does not believe the US should be a sovereign nation. That our laws should be secondary to international groups like the UN and that we do not have the right to protect our borders or control who enters the country.
His opponent believes religious freedom only applies so long as it agrees with her agenda. That her interpretation supersedes the Word of God. In fact, hacked emails released recently revealed conversations by key members of the opponent’s team discussed strategies to change the doctrines and beliefs of the Catholic Church, looking to foment a “Catholic Spring” as they did in the middle east with their support of the “Arab Spring.” I am not Catholic but the very foundations of this nation were laid on the concept of religious liberty and removing government regulation of the church; the true basis of the concept of separation of church and state.
Unfortunately, today we face a choice between two awful people as candidates. Please pray and decide what is most important; the lives of unborn children, a free, strong and independent US, your right to defend your life and the lives of your loved ones from violence, and the freedom to worship according to our own beliefs not those dictated by others, or, something else…
