This goes beyond the Republican party. At the root of this, is a clash of morals, of ethics, of character. For too long, the hidden hand behind government has been a collusion of monied interests, corruption, and self-serving interests. The public was presented with a “face” of government that “seemed” to have its interests in mind. However, when over and over candidates promised reform and then once voted in, served again the monied interests and their own pockets, it started an awakening that these people are not what they say they are. The awakening has been slow, but it is accelerating. People realize that basically we have a cabal, an oligarchy, a criminal mafia walking around in suits and ties, working the system and changing the laws and rules to fit their financial agenda. There is no significant difference between Republicans and Democrats. When you see Republicans saying they would rather vote for Hillary than Trump you realize they prefer to keep an entrenched system of power operated by elites, rather than see that the populous will of the people is honored. This shows the low level of morals, character, and ethics that operates in high places, not only the officials/politicians/bankers/media/players visible to the electorate, but the shadowy government behind the scenes. This is not only a judgement on those running for office, but on those those who support them. If a person who is willing to support a system that “wins by any means”, including lies, theft, defamation, and even threats of murder, then what does that say about the character of those who support them? This goes back to the garden. Adam and Eve believed the words of a being (Lucifer/dragon/devil/satan/serpent) that had been thrown out of heaven (results of his past words in heaven). They thought the serpent was telling them the truth. They found out the words were lies and they lost everything. Lies, lies, lies have been perpetuated on the American people by the elite at the top of both parties long enough that people no longer believe the lies and are waking up and thinking about actual things like, who is telling the truth? Where have lies led in the past? What is the actual fruit of these lies because those who refuse to learn the lessons of history (socialism, communism, Sharia law, RINOs) are doomed to repeat it.
This is not quoted from the original material, but is an additional comment. If you, the reader, are waking up, then you should participate in the awakening by helping your neighbor to awaken. If you do not, then you are part of the problem, rather than being part of the solution. Why is that? Consider an NFL football team. Suppose half of the team members, or 60% of the team members said, “Well, we will just see what happens with the ball. We will stand around the field and only engage when the other team gets to the one-yard line,” you can see that they by default, are setting themselves up to lose by not taking the offensive and seeking to run the field for a touchdown. What occurs everyday in the field of ideas, philosophy, pseudo-science created to back a political agenda, politics, the judiciary, education, the media, commerce and economics are real forces and real dynamics operating every day to create a touchdown for one team or philosophy or the other. In the end, when everything else is boiled away, there are only two basic philosophies, God or anti-God, Christ or anti-Christ. The 300+ prophecies that were fulfilled concerning Jesus the Christ and his claim to being the Son of God and Saviour of the world have been fulfilled by no other individual. Therefore, those claims of Jesus the Christ and the Bible as a whole, including the Old Testament, of how the morals and ethics of men and nations should be run should be heeded by all. If those who claim to bear the name of Christ do not seek to stand for the banner of Christ in politics, in ethics, in morals in the marketplace, then they become part of the problem by default. Because if you are not seeking to win, you are seeking to lose by default.
