I agree, william, like my husband said, people see what they want to see and can always find a link to support that view. If Hillary goes to jail, they will still vote for her and even if she sells our country out for money. So I look at the fact that even a gay that supports Trump is really amazing and many other sinners that do help him get in the White House is just God's way of overcoming the Chrisians' vote for Hilliary.
Bill, thanks for looking over my links. I do try to put them up for informational purposes and educational purposes. I even fell down looking at the SA article myself, so I can't be overly critical of people who don't look at them.
I would have noticed it endorsement of Trump's Romish running mate if I had read it at first, "... I am also very enthusiastic by the selection of Gov. Mike Pence as Mr. Trump's running mate...."---Dobson
I really should have put up both URLs for the articles about Clinton and Trump from the Atlantic, they are both unflattering so I can keep a non-partisan rating.

If you ever go to a doctor for medical care or a dentist for a cavity, to a teacher for education, or to a mechanic to service your car, you have trusted in man. And I doubt many make sure they are Bible believers first. I see no difference in choosing a political person to do a political job than in any of the above to do theirs. "Trusting in man" as an excuse to avoid a responsibility that God has in fact privileged us with, is just that, an excuse.

You seem confused Jim. We rely on imports, mostly from China, because our chief export has been American businesses and jobs, thanks to really dumb policies.
The fact that Brooks, ever the smoking room Republican, said "She (Hillary) cannot appear as a globalist, whatever that means..." shows where the real ignorance is.
Dobson's flawed incrementalism leads him to break his solemn vow to God to "never again vote for anyone who supports killing a single innocent baby"
American RTL's two must-read articles, Oppose Regulations Because... and Oppose Exceptions Because... explain the principles that must be adhered to in order to write principled incremental legislation. In summary, the God-given right to life must be advocated without exception. As an example of a horrendous violation of those principles, see ARTL's PBA Summary: Saved Not One, about the 15-year fundraiser that took in a quarter-of-a-billion dollars for the pro-life industry, yet as Dr. Dobson wrote, "Ending partial-birth abortion... does not save a single human life." Rather than being a victory, many pro-life leaders have since condemned the U.S. Supreme Court's Gonzales v. Carhart ruling upholding the PBA "Ban" for being a virtual late-term abortion manual.
On the other hand, morally compromised legislation can be recognized in that they are child-killing regulations, present child-killing exceptions, and in that they therefore: - end with "and then you can kill the baby"
Great Sermon! This motivates me to further study the Bible from a faithful translation text in French, but eventually the original textus receptus. It would be great to have one French version of this message for the Lord's French speaking sheeps. Thank you.
Hip, hip, hooray...hip, hip, hooray...hip, hip, hooray! Hey, you asked for three cheers. Bruce The Boss Springsteen. Yes, highly overrated, but its the jeans, tshirts, and I'm one of you, grassroots publicity that propelled him to stardom.
Good for NC standing strong on this issue and not succumbing to threats from the NBA and others.

As far as David Brooks, he is hardly a reliable source for accurate analysis. Listening to him and the rest of that liberal bunch on PBS this week was enough to turn my stomach. They ran their big mouths all through the convention so as to not allow the viewers to hear most of the speeches and make up their own minds. Worst convention coverage I've ever seen! Distortion, distraction and a diservice to the public!! Total obfuscation!!!
Three cheers for North Carolina!!! Who needs the NBA anyway or Bruce Springsteen who also boycotted them for their stand for sanity and righteousness? In my rock-n-roll days I never liked him. I like him even less now. He's totally overated and dead wrong on this issue!

Any terrorism should be handled with the mindset to see that justice is done, hang all murderers publicly for an example to others, anyone working with terrorist should be hanged, any government official who tries to make a deal with a terrorist (you tell me information I spare your life) should be removed from office because he's not seeing that justice is done.
These "extremist" commit heinous acts, why should we just give them a slap on the hand? Soak all bullets in pig blood, shoot to kill, no mercy, water board, throw bacon at them (if they're Muslim) to get information, prisoners don't get any luxuries, it sounds extreme, but I'm sick of governments (like mine own) who have a political correctness that carries out into how they deal with terrorist.
Jim, If this article had been about the sins of Donald Trump, then I would had dealt with that, but it was about the fact which Carson pointed out of Hillary Clinton's admiration for Saul Alinsky, a petty thief who associated with the likes of gangster Frank Nitty and dedicated his book Rules for Radicals to Lucifer, who he praised as the first radical.
Nowhere did you see me excusing Trump for his failings, but I would rather vote for him and pray God would do a mighty work in his life than vote for a reprobate who shows no inclination to repent of her long-held unwavering support for the murder of the unborn or her neglect which led to the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi for which she continues to lie.
In voting for President, we are not choosing a deacon or elder in the church. I am not a one-issue voter, but Trump has changed his position on abortion and that alone makes him a better choice than Hillary who has no problem with the slaughter of innocents.
Trump may be a blowhard, but what offends me more is Hillary's arrogant entitlement notion that we owe her the presidency. God forbid she should ever again step foot into the White House!

Either way, I'm afraid we could be under marshal law in two years, and not because of the upcoming election but that the current president has made us unsafe and it might have allowed our nation to suffer grievously. Not from terrorism but from an attack from Russia with a sea launched nuke from the Gulf of Mexico. The Russians have been doing mock missle drills for 3 years from the gulf and it the pentagon have been working on a plan, but, the Russians tried this in 1968 off Hawaii, but their sub sank. Both current candidates are not saying anything on how to deal Russia. One wants us to get along and let Europe suffer and the other has a bad heart and had a blood clot pass thru her brain 5 years ago. Pray hard folks.
I have my own thoughts of what may be in store for us but it is certain that Obama has weakened this nation significantly and Trump aims to turn that around in a hurry. If it looks like Trump will win the general election, I expect one of our enemies (probably not ISIS) will give serious thought to strike either us or a close ME ally like Israel before he takes office. Potentially perilous times ahead.
