Christians Who Plan On being Absent ‘Again’ On Election Day

Christians Who Plan On being Absent ‘Again’ On Election Day

The last two presidential elections saw only slightly more than 30 percent of registered Christians at the polls, and look where we are today, thanks largely to Christian absenteeism.

To vote or not to vote…that is the question???  What is’ the answer…

So my friend on the one hand, we have Donald Trump who we all know by now is far from perfect, but who recently, maybe for the first time in his ‘calling a spade a spade’campaign, delivered substantive, well-received policy speech on defeating Islam/ISIS, salvaging America’s disintegrating economy and quelling the growing epidemic of urban violence by finally addressing core issues. He even publicly expressed regret over ill-considered comments he has made during the campaign that have “caused personal pain,” something I’m sure was very difficult for him.

And then on the other hand, we have Hillary Clinton, who, despite being protected at every turn by a Communist pro-Islamic anti-American news media, is the focus of ever-cascading scandals and is now seen by more people than ever as a lying criminal.  Moreover, if elected president, she says she would continue to enlarge Obama’s pro-Jihadist policies of so-called refugees – as well as his disastrous policies that have destroyed America’s free economy, and his un-Constitutional use of the power of the courts to the point of judicial despotism, we have the most people on the government dole since the great depression, he has destabilized the entire Middle East as well as North and Central Africa and now has brought Yemen into a bloody civil war, increased terrorism in the homeland, popularized outright social Communism, divided the nation by race into angry warring factions, and maintained a constant flood into the American homeland of unassimilable un-vetted Muslim Jihadists refugees from the most violent places on earth, just to name a few, and that will continue under Hillaryism…now stop and take a breath. 

In contrast to Hillary Clinton’s Communist hate Americas-left, third-Obama-term agenda, Trump’s agenda is overwhelmingly conservative – pro-life on abortion, pro-capitalistic, pro-Second Amendment, pro-energy independence, pro-rebuilding our military, pro-enforcement of our present immigration laws, securing our borders, reducing business-crushing taxes and regulations that are driving business out of the country, and so on. By any sane standard my friend, Trump’s plans would make America a better, safer and a more prosperous place than would Hillary’s. 

But is this what we can expect from a robotically programmed non-independent thinking society?

We may rightly wonder, why do so many supposedly good people – including many Christians, conservatives, Republicans, even GOP leaders – refuse to support their party’s presidential nominee who, during the primaries, proved to be the Republican voters’ overwhelming choice, garnering more votes than any GOP primary candidate in the history of the United States of America?  I know you are looking for a messiah, well... He hasn’t come yet! And Ronald Reagan isn’t running…so dance with the one you brung!

Has the foundation of America disintegrated so completely?  In the age of the Obama Regime, America has become home to large numbers of people who unashamedly oppose her core values and burn and desecrate the flag including the president. Polls show millennial robots now slothfully favoring dependence under Social Communism over the independence of do it yourself Capitalism and are rapidly rejecting Christian principals in favor of Marxist Big and powerful Government. Many Americans are so broken they rely on legal or illegal mind-altering substances, or embrace total sexual anarchy with all its attendant diseases and other grim consequences, that lead to a multiplicity of addictions and mental and social disorders.

We are likewise faced with tens of millions of rudderless, government-dependent, “low-information” ignorantly deceived and programed American robots smoking too much funny stuff, as well as untold additional millions of illegal aliens, flooding into our country – the vast majority favoring large, liberal-left tyrannical government, and many with no love for America nor any intent to assimilate or adopt her values, ignorantly desiring to replace Constitutional Freedom with oppressive Sharia law from Hell.

I say it’s even more chilling because, while an evil hate America president can be replaced at the next election, one cannot replace an ignorantly deceived programed population of funny green brownie eating robots so easily.

Yet this election – according to both sides – is the most important of our lifetimes. And still, when it comes to voting, tens of millions of Americans have simply checked out. How can anyone make any since out of that?

A PolitiFact analysis concluded that, in the 2008 and 2012 presidential election, a staggering 67 percent of Christians stayed home on Election Day. Since over 60 percent of Americans self-identify as “Christian” and over 25 percent – one in four – as “evangelical” (or “born-again”), that means we’re talking about tens of millions of Americans. These are people who claim to share the Christian values of the nation’s founders – values treasured by the vast majority of the brave souls who have fought, bled and died to preserve America’s freedoms – and yet can’t find it in themselves to fill out a ballot and vote for the better candidate on Election Day.

Don’t even think of saying “there’s not a dime’s worth of difference between the two parties.” Today’s far-left Communist/Democrat Party (there are almost no more old-time “moderate Democrats “left in Washington) favors laws and policies that depress the economy, destroy jobs, promote the murdering children and mandate the de facto criminalization of Christianity calling Christians - terrorists. Top Democrats, including Obama, refuse even to name, let alone effectively confront, America’s barbaric enemies sworn to destroy us, even as they increase their attacks and boast of their quest for nuclear weapons.  It’s just treasonous.

If that’s not sobering enough, reflect on the Democrat Party’s candidates who in recent decades were either elected, or nearly elected, president of the United States: Bill Clinton, a lifelong, serial sexual predator; Al Gore, a raving lunatic thinks the sky is falling; John Kerry now Secretary of State, who betrayed his fellow Vietnam vets and’ his country; Barack Obama, a deceitful, America-hating, Marxist radical infiltrating Muslim Jihadist; and now Hillary Clinton, the most corrupt person ever to run for the White House, accurately described by Pulitzer-winning New York Times columnist and Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient William Safire as “a congenital liar,” who vows to continue the destruction of America.

Whatever the Republican candidates’ shortcomings are, taking the trouble to vote for a president who isn’t a known anti-American, anti-Constitutional Marxist or career criminal seems pretty sensible for a so called “born-again Christian,” doesn’t it? Or have we totally lost our minds and more importantly our spiritual discernment?  Or are you looking for a perfect messiah to vote for?

How, then, do tens of millions of American Christians justify being AWOL on the past two presidential Election Days? Moreover you are about to do it…AGAIN! 

Seven of so-called Christian most common rationales of irresponsibility is: 1) their particular church denomination tells them they are “citizens of Heaven” and “not part of this world” and therefore they shouldn’t to vote in secular elections; 2) and/or they’re so upset by government corruption they feel contaminated just reading and hearing about it; 3) they believe God will determine who leads America without their help; 4) they believe church and state should be “separate”; 5) they believe their focus should be only the gospel, not politics; 6) God is in control so they don’t have to do anything.  And finally, underlying all these reasons, 7) they’ve given up hope of any good ever coming out of Washington, regardless of who is elected.

Given a clear choice between life and death, morality and immorality, lawfulness and lawlessness, one would reasonably hope – as Moses did when exhorting the ancient Israelites – God’s people would “choose life.” But many of these non-voters are so disillusioned by the lies and hypocrisy dominating politics they have given up hope and walked away.  Where are our Christian Soldiers marching as to war?

Add to this another equally bizarre reality overshadowing the November 2016 presidential election: A disturbing number of voters who readily acknowledge the obvious – that America is on the brink of catastrophe and would do far better under Trump, Pence and their team of Republicans, conservatives, Christians, capitalists and generals, than under the Clintons, Kaine and their team of progressive Communist, Marxists, Muslim Brotherhood operatives and other assorted radicals and crooks – nevertheless claim they will not, indeed cannot, vote for either major-party candidate as a matter of principle and conscience. Many even ignorantly cite biblical authority for their apathetic irresponsibility.

President Abraham Lincoln, reflecting on the bold American experiment, famously observed, “As a nation of freemen we must live through all time, or die by suicide.” How ironic that, if we as an electorate by abstinence, return the notorious and infamous Clinton crime family to the White House to complete Obama’s promise of the “fundamental transformation of America,” thereby bequeathing our children to a starkly different – one might even say “cursed” – country rather than the God blessed one we inherited, it will have been by the irresponsibility of Gods own people.  Or are you going to blame God for it, since He is in control?  God didn’t make no lazy Christians, you simply became that way out of your own self-righteousness.  Remember you are not better than anyone else, you have just claimed forgiveness.

“Either we must all hang together, or separately we will be hanged”.  Benjamin Franklin declared in the days leading up to the Declaration of Independence.  You may not yet recognize it, but I think that also applies here…now!

THE BOTTOM LINE: The responsibility for our nation’s suicide my friend will not just fall alone on all today’s university-indoctrinated and robotically programmed youthful Fabian socialists, or even the newly enfranchised immigrant hate America Jihadists and illegal alien felons who overwhelmingly vote Democrat/socialist, or the various “minority groups” to which Hillary Clinton shamelessly panders in pursuit of their support.

No, the blame will fall squarely on all the self-righteous Never-Trumpers,” on the “my-guy-didn’t-win-in-the primary-so-I’m-staying-home…again.” And Republican voters, on the “Yes-I-signed-the-pledge-but-I’m-breaking-it-cause-Trump-was-mean-to-my-wife/father/brother/a Muslim jihadist/illegal aliens etc. – well…get over it.  Or the “I-serve-another-kingdom-not-of-this-world” and “I-care-only-about-the-gospel-of “God is in control so I am not responsible for anything” - Christian.

The blame will fall hard on good people my friend whose pride, ego, resentment, emotions and self-righteousness deceived them into betraying their country and their own children– all while claiming they were righteously standing on strong Christian principles. 

 “But select capable men from all the people—men who fear God, trustworthy men who hate dishonest gain—and appoint them as officials over thousands…” Exodus 18:21 Notice God doesn’t expect perfect men! Just capable God fearing men etc.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing." -- Edmund Burke

If you are a Christian that wants evil to triumph…then do nothing…again, and yet another evil tyrant will become your ruler.

Remember the perfect leader will not come, until Yahshua comes…until then use your discernment and be a responsible Christian citizen.

Thanks for listening my friend!  Now go do the right thing…
