First of all, lets get a few things straight. 1. Afghanistan fell so fast because the Afghan army, which we spent so much time and money on training these past many years, apparently couldn't "grow a pair" to fight for their own freedom even a little bit. It is always good to help people to be free, but they have to want it and show that they want it by their active and enthusiastic participation. Apparently, Viet Nam taught us nothing. 2. The border is a challenge that Trump didn't do anything about either. Instead of making it harder for the people trying to get here, we need to get on the corrupt governments that they are trying to leave. 3. Vaccine and mask mandates are needed because we are in a pandemic that kills people. The evidence points to the fact that people cannot be trusted to do what is needed on their own. Trump is responsible for over 600,000 plus deaths that could have been avoided. He is also responsible for the attack on our democracy 01/06/21.
I have never heard such unmitigated b.s.! Children are a blessing no matter how they are arrive. It is shocking to me that we, as a society, are supposedly "pro-life" while the baby is in the womb, but the minute he or she is born, that same baby has to fend for themselves ?! THAT is the true sin!
Have we forgotten so soon that Trump instigated and egged on the insurrection and outright rebellion that killed 5 people and embarrassed our country before the whole world on 01/06/21? Why he is not in prison is a wonder to all thinking people, and a black eye to all true, freedom loving people. A vote for Trump or one of his minions is a vote against democracy!
I speak of the Republican SYSTEM of governance, or what has become their philosophy since Trump has arrived on the scene because, so far, the "good" Republicans haven't sufficiently distanced themselves from what has become a cult. This, at least to me, IS different from the different factions of Islam, Judaism, or Christianity because they, as a whole, have not been tainted by their extreme elements. The Republican party had the chance to "dump Trump" in 2016 when the ROC chair, Reinhold Richard "Reince" Priebus' who was actually quite wary of Trump's qualifications, should have revoked his party membership when he seriously spoke of forcing all Muslims to leave the United States. They were too afraid of Trump then running as an independent just like Ross Perot did in 1992 and split the Republican party then, giving Bill Clinton the election.
Teddy Roosevelt actually did have a falling out of sorts with the Republicans of his day, but, he was nowhere near as problematic as Trump. Reagan raised taxes at least 3 times, maybe 4 early in his presidency. What has happened to the GOP is a crying shame because of Trump.
I can think of no one more in dire need of long term treatment for addiction disorders of virtually every kind (attention, authority, so on) than Trump! And someone actually wants to elevate ANYTHING he says as valid, important, and intelligent?! No way!
Frankly, if more of us knelt more often, the God that we think is blessing us and approving of what we do, might actually do so!
When are we going to realize that real freedom comes with responsibilities to others as well as to ourselves? Also, why do we fight so hard against the three things, that if practiced, can save our lives and get us out of this pandemic: vaccination, mask wearing, social distancing, avoiding events that involve large gatherings, and hand washing?
Only if you are a Trump supporter.
You are still rich, even by todays crappy economy. When you hit $0, then start whining!
Keep in mind that, in Scripture, "sheep" are associated with those who are ultimately saved. "Goats", on the other hand, are associated with being ultimately lost. Never follow anyone blindly, but, don't be so quick to assume that those who exercise caution and look out for others as well as themselves are somehow mindless automatons.
It really doesn't matter if you like Trump or not. The fact is that he isn't qualified to be dog catcher, let alone president of the most powerful nation on earth!
When we think of what effectively is Trump's "legacy" (i.e. increased hate and racism among us, over 600,000 dead because of a totally bungled handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, relations with our allies in a complete shambles, open attacks on our democracy and it's institutions) why would anyone with even half a brain want him, or those like him, in any position of responsibility, elected or appointed? Amirite?
Keep in mind that, in Heaven, there will be no sickness or death (Revelation 21:4). Since a sociopath is defined as: :"...a term used to describe someone who has antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). People with ASPD can’t understand others’ feelings. They’ll often break rules or make impulsive decisions without feeling guilty for the harm they cause." they would not be there. Also, while there may be so-called Christians who behave this way, true Christians do not. Having said that, we must also remember not to classify Christians as sociopaths simply because they teach and live their faith.
