[NOTE: At the end I will post links to supporting and clarifying articles.]
For well over three years I tip-toed around this with family and friends who supported Trump. I saw very little evidence that my saying anything would interest them, let alone change their mind. I’ve always felt that Trump was and empty suit, empty head, and empty heart…aka all about himself. Period. Since he declared his run in 2015 for the Presidency he has daily reaffirmed those views.
Recently I’ve become public about my opposition to Trump.
The reaction from my family and friends, and followers on FB and Twitter who are Christian and/or Conservative was expected. They asked/said things similar to the following:
- So, you support Hillary, Obama, Biden, Pelosi? [Insert ANY Liberal/Democrat name.]
- So, you want America to become Socialist?
- If you don’t support Trump you support abortion, gun control, and tax-hikes…
My heart-felt, reasoned answers based upon years of study, research, and experience:
- Have NEVER voted for a Democrat, NOR for a Liberal. NEVER. Never gave. Never will. Hence my logical opposition to Trump.
- America made it’s FIRST BIG turn TOWARD Socialism back in 1919 under Woodrow Wilson: The IRS, The Federal Reserve Bank, The Income Tax, The League of Nations…America has ONLY SLOWED her march towards Marxism under Coolidge and Reagan. In 1962 America as a NATION BANNED God…in 1972 we approved the whole-sale MURDER of the unborn…and it’s only gotten worse since then. Today we have over 31 TRILLION DOLLAR DEBT, and Trump just added 4.5-5 TRILLION MORE DOLLARS TO THE NATIONAL DEBT, INCLUDING THE LARGEST FUNDING OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD EVER. I hate Socialism, hence my opposition to Trump.
- That is both laughable and sad. I’ve been a Born-Again, Biblical, Holy Ghost and Fire Baptised, Christian since August 14th, 1976; Since then I’ve also been a Constitutional-Conservative. I’ve studied through the entire Bible 70 times. I’ve read and have copies of the Declaration of Independence, Federalist Papers, The Constitution.Bill of Rights. On God’s Word and America’s Founding Documents I am a STRICT Originalist and Constructionist. I’ve marched in Pro-Life marches, picketed abortion clinics, worked the street ministry, worked in food and clothing pantries…I teach Bible class, preach, counsel, sing, and lead worship…all in accordance to God’s Holy Word, as led by God’s Holy Spirit. I am NOT perfect. But I am NOT in any way a Liberal, NOR in ANY way support abortion.
WHY BECOME SO PUBLIC ABOUT IT NOW?
MY APPEAL IS SIMPLE…
Either we can BE friends, and love each other though we disagree…OR
You can get mad and block me, ignore me, or attack me. I’ve had both. Recently.
I will NOT change. I can NOT change and still be true to God. It is that plain and simple.
I am not asking you to change your views or beliefs. I would like you to. BUT if you die supporting Trump I will still love you…always.
Love does NOT mean agree.
As I close, here are some supportive and clarifying links for you to read…I want ONLY ONE thing: Please do NOT engage me in debate/argument if you refuse to read the articles and evidence therein. I will NOT respond if you do NOT read what I freely present you. This is hour upon HOURS of research spanning 43 years…I took the time to read and ride- PLEASE at least read BEFORE responding.
Though that seems like a lot, it is but the tip of the iceberg of what I’ve studied, researched and written.
These are memes…but they each carry a sincere message…
Many did not read this. Many who did are mad right now.
BUT…read it all. Go to each link. READ. STUDY. PRAY.
IF you still disagree- fine. IF you want to debate- I welcome it…BASED ON ACTUAL FACTS. NOT opinion.
And before you say, “Well, all you did was post your opinion.” My reply is, “Yes, based upon study, research, facts, evidence, eye-witness accounts, and prayer.
My biggest fear concerning this?
Many do not have the Biblical discernment to sift through everything and even SEE the facts.
God BLESS ALL who made it to here…I love you..and all the ones who quit long ago.
