I know I’ve said this multiple times in the past, but it’s one of the few things I honestly cannot say enough: thank the Almighty Lord for choosing Trump to be POTUS. He’s truly Making America Great Again, and at even faster rates than any of us could have imagined. But this would not have happened had NeverTrumpers and Democrats gotten what they wanted: another President Clinton.
An article on Breitbart News correctly acknowledges this and takes note of the latest Supreme Court cases that have preserved free speech, which would not have happened under a President Clinton.
John Nolte, the writer of the article, writes: “Had NeverTrump got what they wanted in 2016… Justice Antonin Scalia would have already been replaced with another Ruth Bader Ginsburg, which ensured an immediate 5-4 left-wing majority… Wednesday’s retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy would have increased that already unthinkable majority to 6-3, ensuring a left-wing court rewriting the Constitution for decades to come.”
Looking back, the 2016 Presidential election was probably the single most important election this country ever had. Why do I say that? Let me explain:
With the way the Left has been acting, it was only a matter of time until they went full-on socialist. Sure, Trump’s election forced them to rush into this open ideology, but we knew that this is what they were. This election was a huge fork in the road. On the one side, you had Trump, who would Make America more Capitalist Again, cutting regulations, lowering taxes, having a booming economy. It’s no guarantee by any stretch of the imagination, but his work could set up a cultural shift away from socialism, by exposing it for what it is and offering the absolute best solution: capitalism.
On the other side, you had Clinton, who would run the country like an auction for the highest bidder to influence, incorporate more socialist policies and effectively run this country into the ground, farther than Obama managed. It cannot be overstated the massive bullet we dodged by not electing her. As the Breitbart article correctly points out, the Supreme Court would have a 5-4 Leftist majority with a future 6-3 Leftist majority.
This means that bake shops would have been forced to bake cakes for same-sex weddings or face severe punishment, unions would continue to be able to force non-members to pay fees, pro-life pregnancy centers would be forced to advertise abortion for its customers and religious freedom would be down the drain. America would have effectively fallen, not by any outside threat (though ISIS, North Korea and Iran would make their share of threats), but by an inside threat known as Communism.
America under a President Clinton would be entirely unrecognizable from the America the Founders envisioned and founded. And this is without even taking into consideration our 2nd Amendment rights, which might have been done away with shortly after the Parkland shooting, as well as illegal immigration, which she would have opened our borders and turned us into a sanctuary nation.
I have to confess something. Prior to the election, I foolishly believed a Clinton presidency would not have been so bad. I foolishly believed she would have maybe run the country like her husband did. As much of a disgusting animal as he is, he was not a horrible President, at least in terms of the economy. I foolishly believed she would have been alright, and considering the standard Obama set for Democrat Presidents in my mind, she would have been better than him.
Oh, how wrong I was. Thankfully, this is a lesson I (and the nation) did not have to learn the hard way. Because Hillary is not Bill. She’s not smart, not even a little. If she were, she would not have gotten caught using a private server. She still would have done it, but she wouldn’t have gotten caught. If she were smart, she would not have underestimated her opposition and assumed she would be crowned as POTUS. If she were smart, she would've left Bill after the first rape case and forged a successful career without him. Clearly she felt she needed Bill, so she stayed. Even she knows she's not very smart.
She would have likely put the final nail in the coffin Obama crafted for the country. She would have effectively turned this country to complete socialism, maybe not as an official form of government, but more in the shape of Venezuela: sham elections to elect their dictator.
Looking back, the country had two choices that day: socialism (even if we didn’t quite know it), or abundant and powerful capitalism (even if we didn’t quite know it, or were skeptical of Trump but still chose him over the nasty woman). Looking back, we can see the massive miracle that Trump’s victory was.
What do I mean? Think about it. Think about the obstacles he had to face. Not only did he have to face 15 other Republican candidates, many of whom would make great Presidents themselves, but had to also defeat one of the most crooked and corrupt politicians in American history, defeat an FBI and DOJ who, under orders of then-President Obama, were out to destroy him, and he had to face a fake news media that would lie so much, if they were Pinocchio, their noses would cover all 57 states.
Add all this to the fact that, had he lost, America would have gone down a path from which there was likely no return – a path that would ultimately have utterly changed the country as founded, just as Obama sought to do – and you really have to acknowledge the massive miracle God performed for us.
He decided that, at least for now, we can have the chance to return to Him, to trust in Him again and to make this country His again. He decided that we would not go further down the socialist rabbit hole. And He has decided that the Left would expose themselves for the evil they are. This is why I keep saying there might not be a Democrat Party in the near future. Socialism is evil, we’re witnessing it, and most people don’t want to follow.
Of course, there are those who do wish to follow, and those people are either wicked or weak. They either don’t know the evils of socialism and blindly follow it, or know the evils of socialism and simply don’t care. Worse yet, some could both know the evils of socialism and that’s the precise reason they want it.
By “those people” I mean every-day voters, not elected officials. Elected officials almost exclusively know about the evils of socialism and that’s why they want it. They want all of that power that socialism would bring them.
This is what we could have had with a President Clinton. What we could have had if the NeverTrumpers had gotten their way, according to the Breitbart article.
Now, the article does mention that these NeverTrumpers, while citing morality and principle, chose to be against Trump because of their own vanity. Because of their supposed desire to be on CNN and MSNBC.
In the article’s words: “Never Trump is and was only about one thing – a bunch of spoiled, petty, small-minded, bigoted sore losers who desperately want to be on CNN and MSNBC.”
While I do agree that they are spoiled, petty, small-minded, bigoted losers, I don’t quite think it was their vanity that made them NeverTrumpers.
I believe it’s somewhat multi-faceted. For some, it might be their egos. By which I mean that, at the time of Trump’s nomination, they were against him because they did not want to associate with someone whom, in their mind, was barbaric and uncivilized. And now that Trump has shown to be very conservative and doing exactly what these supposed conservatives wanted out of a Republican President, their egos will not let them admit they were wrong. They still see him as an inarticulate brute, despite his conservative and pro-America accomplishments. They are too stubborn to admit they were wrong about him.
This, however, only covers some NeverTrumpers. Those within the media like Jonah Goldberg, David Frum and such. However, there is another kind of NeverTrumper: current and former elected Republicans and former workers of elected Republicans. This includes people like Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell (though he’s playing ball for right now. Still don’t trust him, though), Jeff Flake, John McCain, Mitt Romney, etc. They are NeverTrumpers, not simply because of their egos, but because they are not true conservatives. They belong to an exclusive club known as the Washington Establishment. And this club resents the heck out of Trump not just for winning, but for surviving their attacks, thriving even DESPITE these attacks and effectively showing everyone how much of a scam these Washington elites are. Showing everyone how a government can run right and that these people have been stalling and stonewalling virtually everything, running an ineffective government that was best left up to the executive branch.
And THAT is the ultimate desire of the Washington Establishment. To turn Congress into a slow and ineffective branch that would be best usurped by the POTUS, getting us a step closer to actual Fascism and socialism. Funny enough, it’s not too dissimilar to what Germany did under Hitler.
This brand of NeverTrumpers are all effectively Democrats (again, putting an asterisk next to McConnell for now).
So while Nolte may believe these people are all about vanity (admittedly, that’s a small part of it), it’s also a lot more than that. NeverTrumpers of the Republicrat variety are not necessarily about vanity (thought they love the adulation they sometimes receive from the media when attacking Trump) but rather about furthering the Leftist goal of increasing the size of the government to U.S.S.R levels.
In their minds, the U.S.S.R will be succeeded by the U.S.S.A. – the United Socialist States of America. This is why they aligned themselves with Hillary. This is what her legacy would have brought on us.
It cannot be overstated how much we owe the Lord for keeping the Clintons out of the White House. We already owe Him our very lives because of the sacrifice of His Son, but now, we owe Him even more than that (not to say that this was more important than Christ sacrificing Himself on the cross, of course, just that God continues to do great and wonderful things for us even when we do not deserve such goodness. It just speaks to the love and goodness of God). A debt that is already unrepayable has become even more unrepayable.
Which is why I constantly offer Him my thanks, my worship and my undying faith. It’s really the most I could possibly do for Him.
“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
