I am still in Mr. Cruz’s corner even as he has made his decision to vote for Mr. Trump. That is his right, his decision and his conscience he has to deal with. I agree that this is a difficult a decision. What makes it easier for me is that I serve a God who is in control. Again, Mr. Trump may be like a Jephthah of the Old Testament whom God used to deliver Israel from their oppressors (Judges 11-12). If Mr. Trump ends up being worse than an Obama or Hillary Clinton as president, understand, we were set on the path of destruction due to our callousness to the abortion of the most innocent among us; the perversion of marriage between one man and one woman which destroys the home; the lack of reverence toward God and our fellow man, then we are doomed for destruction. But if he recognizes God and His principles; follows the constitution; and appoint constitutional judges, then perhaps God will avert His wrath and bless this nation which He has used to free many and push back many forces of evil. So, for me, Mr. Cruz is not viewed any less in my eyes which does not mean much anyway.

I too have respect for Mark’s decision. To me, he is not a sell-out, he is as many of us are, not sure but hoping and praying for the best. Hillary is a known liar, cheat, and incompetent person to be the POTUS, her tract record speaks for itself. Whereas Trump could be a possible Jephthah of Judges 11-12. Instead of a valiant warrior, who kept his vow to his own hurt and judged Israel for 6 years, but a valiant businessman keeps his promises and serves as POTUS for 8 years, leading us out of our own rhino stupidity. Perhaps and hopefully Donald might be and do the same. Or perhaps he may be like Rahab the harlot, who recognizes the truth and freedom and converts to true conservatism as he learns and grows in its great responsibility. FYI, Rahab ended up in the lineage of the Christ (Matthew 1:5) and example of saving faith (James 2:25). I serve a God who can and does awesome things.
Amen, DSA! Amen and amen!! Loved your examples from the Bible! We sometimes forget that God sometimes chooses the foolish (or lowly and unloved) things of this world to confound the wise! Trump has surrounded himself with a number of truly excellent folks to advise him...another mark of a great leader, but he also has the cajones to make the tough decisions and to take responsibility for them, unlike Hillary and most Dems who blame either Bush or Conservatives for everything under the sun! And yes, our God is an awesome God!

Because Legend and many others have been brainwashed by years of Democrat psuedo-knowledge, they don’t know the true history of black American’s being apart of the forging of this nation. Ask them who Crispus Attuck, Fredrick Douglas, Benjamin Banneker are, they couldn’t tell you if their lives depended upon it. They fail to realize that it was the racist Democrats that warped their view of America and that they are unwitting slaves to them. Smh at such sad, sad, talented people who are just puppets on a string.

Facts, especially biblical facts, aka truth, works as racism repellent. If inhaled, it will even drive out the racism that may exist in you and make you feel better about others.
Now, this is a leader that puts us on the offense to solve the problems that we face as Americans.

Did you notice what Farrakhan did? He labeled all “white people” as obtaining what they have by violence, thus inciting violence against them. He is a promoter of division and violence against others. Yes, Mr. Farrakhan, God does hate. Notice what the prophet Zechariah said to Israel to encourage them to continue to rebuild the temple looking toward the future in hope of the coming Savior and King, Jesus.
“‘These are the things which you should do: speak the truth to one another; judge with truth and judgment for peace in your gates. ‘Also let none of you devise evil in your heart against another, and do not love perjury; for all these are what I hate,’ declares the LORD.” Zechariah 8:16-17
So, the very thing that God hates is the very things he does. His conduct and attitude makes him no different than the liberal, Marxist, progressives who are destroying the fabric of this God blessed country.

Really? Really? Folks, totalitarianism is in full swing. Now the FBI stands for Faulty Backbone Installed.

No matter how one may feel, you cannot change the “DNA”. Next stupid and insane excuse!
Only evolution can change DNA, or a random physical particle like a neutrino.
Every living thing that ever lived on earth has the same common ancestor.

I am going to get my eyes checked because just about every time I read or see something like this my eyes get a little blurry and I start sniffling.

Sure he wants to explode on the campaign trail. When their nominee loses, his excuse will be that he should have exploded on the trail sooner. It is the “if I’d only” argument which cannot be discredited in his mind. Folks, mark my words, for I have dealt with people like this.

Not surprising for that would mean they would have to think for themselves, grow-up and be adults instead of just existing to party and play during recess.

Been reading some great responses to such an asinine comparison. It is a sad testament when a person equates chickens with humans. H E L L O! Chickens are H A T C H E D! Do you understand the words being written? You know what’s even sadder, many poor and minority women applaud such stupidity.

What a farce and a hack statement!! What’s with this paper bag mentality thinking? If you want to deal with diversity, go buy a ranch or farm.

The sad thing is that this is coming from the President of the United States. A freedom loving person would not even consider this, but a dictator, Socialist/Marxist, communist ideological person would. The heart of the man is exposed.
But the American voters have been too dumb to be bothered and the MSM is in the pocket of the Far Left.

What a shame that these women have no regards for common decency & dignity. Black Americans seems to always rally around the foolish and criminal elements of life. Never do they rally for the Black Americans who are decent, upstanding citizens and fine examples of society. Again, what a shame!
It's poor consolation, but all groups have their jerks. Black Americans' are just more visible these days. It may be because Black American Jerk #1 is in the White House.

A man well respected by me. A child of wisdom and constutionality takes up the mantle of truth and justice.

What Mr Gruenwald won’t tell is that the New Covenant, in reality, was before the Old Covenant. The text of scriptures teach: “For the Law, since it has only a shadow of the good things to come and not the very form of things, can never, by the same sacrifices which they offer continually year by year, make perfect those who draw near. Otherwise, would they not have ceased to be offered, because the worshipers, having once been cleansed, would no longer have had consciousness of sins?” (Hebrews 10:1-2) The key words in the text are “shadow” and “form”. In order for a shadow to be cast, you must first have a form or an object. Thus the form or object was Christ and His New Covenant. When Cruz uses the phrase ‘Judeo-Christian’, he is simply acknowledging the connection. Mr Gruenwald is correct in thinking that Christianity (New Covenant practice) is to dominate because God prophesied in the Old Testament (Isaiah 2:1-5; Daniel 2:20-44) that this was to be.
