In just two weeks we face the biggest and most important election in my lifetime. The issues facing us as a people are enormous. This election has come down to two very flawed candidates: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. One of them will, however, be president in two weeks. As in every General Election it gets tiring listening to all the junk we all have to put up with. Sorting out the lies from the truth is imperative, especially when the Media is doing a big part of the lying.
The most important difference between the two candidates can be seen in who they say they would appoint to the Supreme Court and to cabinet positions. For example, on the court Hillary says all her picks have to support Roe v. Wade. She emphatically declared on national television that an unborn child, even hours before birth, does not have constitutional rights. Interpreted that means that she does not believe that baby is human. That is the same decision that Chief Justice Taney handed down in 1857 that stated that slaves did not have constitutional rights. We fought a war and lost 600,000 soldiers to settle that issue. Trump has named men and women who believe babies are human beings and that partial-birth-abortion is wrong. They also believe the constitution should be interpreted in the context of what the founders wanted it to say and not what liberal justices want it to say.
A second major difference in the two candidates is their view of the country. Clinton believes we should continue our move toward socialism that Obama has so capably implemented. We now have nearly 100 million people not working and living off what the working people make. She will raise payroll taxes and reduce the amount of money people take home each week. She will do this because she believes the government knows better how to spend our money than we do. Trump on the other hand will cut taxes allowing each of us to take home more of our hard earned money. Under Kennedy and Reagan tax cuts brought a revival of growth to the economy.
Clinton’s view of the world would bring the U.S. under more domination of the United Nations, while Trump would strengthen our independence. Clinton would deplete even further the military, while Trump would strengthen it. Clinton would gain more control over our daily lives through the agencies of the federal government by growing the government, while Trump would reduce the size of government.
This election is too important to sit out. As Christians we have to vote for the candidate that is closer to our biblical world view. Please pray that millions of Evangelical Christians will go to the polls on November 8th.
