I respect and understand your reasons for voting third party, but I seriously doubt voting third party sends either party a message. Theres not enough people voting third party to really send a message. Too many are ensconced in the two party system.

That's excatly what everyone else has said who dealt with classified material in the military. The whole investigation is a joke.

To clarify my statement, I wasnt saying Im not gonna vote, just that if one can't bring themself to vote for Trump they might as well not vote since the third party candidates are worse than he is and a write in is an exercise in futility. I really dont like Trump, and Ive struggling with whether or not to vote for him, but I cant stay home and not vote when so much is at stake so I'm gonna go ahead and vote for him.
The one ray of hope is that Trump is evidence that the American people have had enough of the corruption in Washington, whether or not he'll be able to fix any of that is debatable, but people are willing to take a chance with him. The problem is that even if Trump is elected, we might get a short respite from the liberal madness of the last eight years, but in long run he'll only slow down the inevitable. Each generation is more dumb and morally bankrupt than the last. Progressives control the education system, media, entertainment industry, ect, insuring legions of dumbed down liberal sycophants for years to come. Parents invest little time in their kids to offset this overdose of liberal propaganda if they dont believe it themselves. Whats this country gonna look like when millennials are running the show? It aint gonna be pretty. Unless the Lord has mercy on this country and blesses this nation with spiritual awakening, I don't see things getting better in the long run.

Exactly. Like I've been saying for months now it doesnt matter who is elected, this country is going down the toilet anyway. The people in this country love wickedness and no president principled or not is gonna change that. This country despartely needs a spiritual awakening.

Even with a president with biblical principles nothing will change. We need a congress that actually upholds the constitution and doesnt serve self interest. As long as people keep reelecting Pelosi, Schumer, Reid, McConnel, Ryan, etc nothing will ever change.
I quit watching football because it became an idol. Im ashamed to admit that when services were over I was in a rush to get home and watch the games. Cheerleaders are terrible and all, but honestly I never noticed them. They're pretty much never shown and some teams don't even have them. Idolatry is the biggest problem when it comes to football not cheerleaders, and Idolatry isn't the NFL's fault. Personally I think christians are better off not watching it, but I will not push this on anybody.
