Now what?

Take a minute to give thanks then make 1 phone call!

Wasn’t last Tuesday night great?!? There is much to thank God for this Thanksgiving. Locally we elected a new County Prosecutor (defeating cronyism) and a new County Commissioner!

Nationally, I believe, we have been given a reprieve and an opportunity to return this nation to the rule of law and a more limited government vs. the deathblow to our Representative Republic, we would have had under Clinton.

NOW WHAT?

Continue to pray for President-elect Trump and all newly elected officials.

THEN CALL CONGRESSMAN STIVERS, #202-225-2015!
(I mean it! I know you hear requests to call your Congressman often from many groups, but if there was ever a time to take that request seriously, now is the time! Over the holidays we need to communicate what we want from Congress in advance of Trump being sworn in! This election has shaken up the establishment and if they have any common sense at all, they will mend their ways or they will lose their jobs in the mid-term elections!)

no-more-excuses

  • Tell Congressman Stivers there are no more excuses regarding the appeal of Obamacare! Republicans can go after key pieces of Obamacare right away; the subsidies, the individual mandate and the employer mandate.
  • Tell Congressman Stivers there are no more excuses regarding fixing trade! Withdraw from TPP, renegotiate NAFTA, label China a currency manipulator.
  • Tell Congressman Stivers there are no more excuses regarding fixing immigration! Strengthen Visa rules, halt immigration from terror prone regions, cancel funding to sanctuary cities.
  • Tell Congressman Stivers there are no more excuses regarding fixing education! Get rid of the Department of Education (the federal government has no place in education) and return control to the states and communities.

Donald Trump is the Christian Choice

Donald Trump

From iPatriot

I am not a fan, and really never have been a fan of Donald Trump. I am a Christian and I hold to Christian values, or what some also call ‘family values’. I definitely do not approve of his remarks recently leaked from an 11 year old “hot mic” capture.

Despite that and other misgivings, I have decided I will vote for Mr. Trump. For me, there really is no alternative. I believe that, when examined, there is really no alternative for Christians in this nation as a whole! The Democratic nominee is a horror story promising nothing but continued liberal misery and perhaps the downfall of our nation under the weight of a socialist nightmare. She is completely pro-abortion, and is quite frankly, the most corrupt candidate ever to run for the presidency, period! There are two other candidates who will be on the ballots in all the states. The Libertarian candidate, Gary Johnson, might be an option if there were not some important facts to consider. One, no third, or fourth, or fifth candidate has any chance of winning this election. Votes cast in their direction are useless at best, unless the numbers are so massive as to gravely effect the election. That’s just not going to happen. At worst the small numbers could possibly drain enough votes from Trump to get HRC the presidency!

Poll Madness

From Marietta OH-912

Tom Zawistowski Monday, October 19

Tom Zawistowski, Monday, October 19

I am getting all kinds of reports from all over Ohio of the great things that all of you are doing to win this election and get Trump elected on November 8th. In this email, I would like to share some ideas that you can use to be more effective in your area.

Poll Madness:
As you know the We The People Convention Poll that was conducted before and after the last debate, showed that Trump was winning in Ohio by between 6.7% and 11.7%. Just yesterday, a CNN poll showed Trump winning in Ohio by 4%. However, other polls are showing that it is tied and national polls are showing Clinton with ridiculous leads like 11%. Even FoxNews is in on the scam. The poll they put out early this week that Clinton was winning by 9% – over sampled Democrats by 9%!! Remember, Roger Ailes was the Conservative Head of Fox News and he is gone now. Rupert Murdock who owns FoxNews is a globalist and you are seeing Fox turn against Trump even more because of this change. Finally, FORGET the national polls, they mean nothing. Look at the key state polls like Ohio, Florida, North Carolina – that is where the election will be decided. Also, any polls that only includes Trump and Clinton is a phony poll intended to deceive you because Johnson and Stein are taking from Clinton and not Trump and that is why they leave them out. Don’t believe the polls, just keep talking to people in your community and we will win. Read more at Marietta OH-912

Democratic and Republican Party Platforms

Democratic and Republican Party Platforms: Where They Stand on the Issues

decision

by billygraham.org
Decision Magazine / August 23, 2016

Many decisions are made at the president’s desk, but the major political party to which he or she belongs wields significant power over which domestic and international policies are advanced and what becomes law. Here is a summary of the Democratic and Republican party positions on some of the vital issues facing the country. As Franklin Graham has stated clearly many times, we are not endorsing any candidate or party.

Sanctity of human life

Democratic
Democrats seek to repeal the 1976 Hyde Amendment so that federal funds can be used to pay for abortions. The platform says, “We will continue to stand up to Republican efforts to defund Planned Parenthood health centers.” Democrats support ratification of UN efforts that affirm “the reproductive rights of women” globally.

Republican
The GOP asserts the sanctity of human life and affirms, “The unborn child has a fundamental right to life which cannot be infringed.” The party supports a Human Life Amendment making clear that the 14th Amendment’s protections apply to children before birth, and it salutes states that require informed consent, parental consent, waiting periods and clinic regulation.

Marriage

Democratic
Democrats applaud last year’s Supreme Court ruling that “LGBT people—like other Americans—have the right to marry the person they love.”

Republican
The GOP platform condemns the Supreme Court’s rulings that removed the ability of Congress and the people to define marriage as the union of one man and one woman. The GOP urges the reversal of those decisions, whether through judicial reconsideration or a constitutional amendment.

Religious freedom

Democratic
The Democratic platform says: “We support a progressive vision of religious freedom that respects pluralism and rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate.” The party opposes a religious test to bar immigrants or refugees from entering the country.

Republican
Republicans affirm that religious freedom in the Bill of Rights protects the right of the people to practice their faith in their everyday lives. The platform endorses the First Amendment Defense Act, which would protect faith-based institutions and individuals from government discrimination.

Federal judges

Democratic
The platform says: “We will appoint judges who defend the constitutional principles of liberty and equality for all, and will protect a woman’s right to safe and legal abortion.”

Republican
The GOP platform states: “A critical threat to our country’s constitutional order is an activist judiciary that usurps powers properly reserved to the people through other branches of government.” The GOP supports the appointment of justices and judges who respect the constitutional limits on their power and respect the authority of the states.

National defense

Democratic
The Democratic platform says that while the military is crucial, decreased military spending is necessary. The party also favors reducing excessive spending on nuclear weapons. The platform notes that it is “proud of the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and the opening of combat positions to women.”

Republican
The Republican platform favors building and maintaining a strong military as the path to peace and security. The party seeks to restore the nation’s military might and to rebuild troop numbers. The GOP would abandon treaties that benefit adversaries and would modernize the U.S. nuclear arsenal.

Terrorism

Democratic
The Democratic platform uses firm language to say we “must defeat” global terrorism, though noting a preference for “diplomacy and development, to confront global threats and ensure war is a last resort.” The party favors improving international intelligence capabilities to defend against external and homegrown threats.

Republican
The GOP asserts that the Iran deal does not have treaty status and has only emboldened the regime in Tehran in sponsoring terrorism. The platform says, “We must stand up for our friends, challenge our foes, and destroy ISIS.” It calls for governmental aid to Christian communities under genocidal attack in cities like Erbil.

Human rights

Democratic
The Democratic platform recognizes gay rights as a human right, and party leaders have tied international development funds in poor countries to adherence to the LGBT agenda. According to the platform, “We will continue to stand with LGBT people around the world, including fighting efforts by any nation to infringe on LGBT rights or ignore abuse.”

Republican
The GOP platform states: “To those who stand in the darkness of tyranny, America has always been a beacon of hope, and so it must remain.” The party seeks a radical rethinking of our human rights diplomacy, adopting a “whole of government” approach in which human rights issues are integrated at every appropriate level of our relationships with other nations.

Immigration

Democratic
The party platform denounces Donald Trump’s suggested ban on immigrants from countries (mostly Muslim) known to train and equip terrorists.

Republican
Republicans oppose any form of amnesty for those who have entered illegally. The party supports building a border wall and refusing entrance to refugees who cannot be carefully vetted, especially those whose homelands have “been the breeding grounds for terrorism.”

Internet safety and decency

Democratic
The platform supports “a free and open internet at home and abroad.” The party would seek to strengthen cybersecurity while “protecting the privacy and civil liberties of the American people.”

Republican
The platform states: “The internet must not become a safe haven for predators. Pornography, with its harmful effects, especially on children, has become a public health crisis that is destroying the lives of millions.”

Addressing poverty

Democratic
Democrats will “direct more federal resources to lifting up communities that have been left out and left behind.” The party would build more affordable rental housing units and seek to “create good-paying jobs and enhance opportunities by investing in small business, youth employment, and reentry programs for formerly incarcerated people.”

Republican
The GOP says that instead of government handouts that keep people dependent, “We propose … the dynamic compassion of work requirements in a growing economy, where opportunity takes the place of a hand-out, where true self-esteem can grow from the satisfaction of a job well done.”

Law and order

Democratic
The Democratic platform seeks to abolish the death penalty, “which has proven to be a cruel and unusual form of punishment. It has no place in the United States of America.” The party would reform mandatory minimum sentences, close private prisons, end racial profiling and train officers in de-escalation.

Republican
The GOP decries the creation of new “crimes” by unelected civil servants and political appointees and sees this as federal overreach. The platform emphasizes restorative justice, including guidance by faith-based institutions. It notes that the death penalty is firmly settled by the Fifth Amendment and opposes efforts to erode this right.

Israel and Jerusalem

Democratic
The platform states: “We will always support Israel’s right to defend itself, including by retaining its qualitative military edge, and oppose any effort to delegitimize Israel. … While Jerusalem is a matter for final status negotiations, it should remain the capital of Israel, an undivided city accessible to people of all faiths.”

Republican
Republicans express “unequivocal support for Israel,” pointing out that it is the only Middle Eastern country with freedom of speech and freedom of religion. The GOP recognizes “Jerusalem as the eternal and indivisible capital of the Jewish state.” The party opposes the U.N.’s treatment of Israel as a pariah state.

The Tax Question

What If I Was Donald Trump? Stefan Molyneux answers Lester Holt’s question about Donald Trump’s tax returns – as if he was Donald Trump.

“No, I am being asked about my tax returns not because my opponent cares about what is in them, but because she desperately wants to distract you from the disasters she helped create, and the real solutions I have.”
