#NeverTrump is NeverBiblical, maybe NeverSmart

A situation once arose in the Bible where the choice of the majority then, compared with Trump’s nomination now, makes it look like the Pope really is running for President. Then, the majority voted to dispense with the time-wasting gradual erosion of their freedoms, and to just hand over all their freedoms in a single […]

#Trump on #Reagan Tax Cuts: “absolute catastrophe for the country”

By Bob Quasius – Donald Trump is proposing a massive Reagan style tax cuts and loves hearing comparisons of himself to Ronald Reagan. However, it was a completely different story in 1991 when liberal Democrats in Congress called Donald Trump to testify as one of their economic experts!

Shining “the Gospel” Outside the Bushel

As comforting as it is to be able to blame others – especially Democrats – for the world’s problems, a neglected portion of “The Gospel” tells us to correct those who create problems. We are supposed to “rebuke” them: talk to them – reason with them. It is not “love” to leave a neighbor’s sin […]

“Never Trump” and the Bible

Do delegates to the July 18-21 Republican Convention, who are “bound” to vote for Trump, have the legal right to vote differently from the first ballot? If they do, will it be politically smart for delegates to vote differently than the majority of voters sending them to Cleveland? Does God have an opinion about any […]

Trump Is the Nativist Dream Candidate

By Alex Nowrasteh – Donald Trump’s win in Indiana has practically clinched the Republican nomination. Since July 2015, Trump has led in most polls of GOP candidates. Immigration restrictionism is his most popular policy position. That position and the way he’s talked about it have defined his candidacy and set him apart from the get […]

Gary Johnson for President

Immigrants and their friends look to Democrats and see presidential candidates whose words are often quite friendly but whose votes have been terrifying; and to Republicans and see two candidates whose words are terrifying, and whose deeds – well, Cruz’ are even more terrifying, and Trump, who knows what he will do? By Dave Leach, […]
