    Why do you find it strange to rely upon the Declaration of Independence in this story. The principles that were laid out in the Declaration were as profound and true as the moral law that is laid out in the bible. 3 years ago, I went through and memorized the first half of the Declaration because there is as much depth in it as I have found in scripture.

    Christians still account for 75% of the population, down from 90% just a couple of decades ago. And many Christians do not abide by the faith they proclaim. Of those that profess Christianity, only about 1/3 actually attempt to live Christian lives. We have become an apostate nation, and our only chance is to turn back to God.

    It’s the same thing they did in Everson vs. Board of Education. In that decision, 150 years of precedent was overturned by the Supreme court in which they stated that the 1st amendment applied to the states. Up until then, the 1st amendment only had authority over the federal government. In their explanation, they stated that the founders didn’t really understand that it was applied to the states, but then they used the 14th amendment, as their means to apply it to the states, essentially tying two amendments written 80 years apart together.

    The thing I find hilarious about Hannity is the way he always talks about how he is not a republican, he is a registered conservative. But when you vote for the republicans even when the candidate is not a conservative, your actions speak louder than words. Hannity is one of those guys who is not a genuine conservative, but tries to play one on tv. Like the majority of the republicans elected. IF not for guys like Cruz, Paul, Mike Lee, Justin Amash, and even Rubio, the republican party would already be lined up next to the whigs.

    Your right of course Jarhead. It’s is quite obvious that the democratic party is no longer hiding their Marxist/socialist tendencies; that is who they are. The republicans, the so called “conservative” party can only be considered moderate. So often you hear guys like McCain and Graham called rinos, when in fact it is guys like Cruz, Mike Lee, Rand Paul are the real rinos. Because the republican party is not a conservative party, but a moderate one.

    I’ll consider the libertarians, as well as the Constitution party. Might have their work cut out for themselves though getting on all 50 states ballots.

    They are not independent, they are run by the administration. The president appoints an agency head which gets voted on by the senate.

    As a Christian, I support Cruz. I believe that he would follow the Constitution, which is what is required of the president of the United States. Doing your job effectively is a Christian quality, as Paul stated “Whatever you do, do it as if you were doing it for the glory of God.” As a Christian, he knows that the president and the government have a role, and the church has a role. Those two roles must be kept separate under current supreme court opinions. As a lawyer who has argued in front of the supreme court and won every time, he knows this and he knows how to do it and still fulfill God’s purposes.

    The only oxymoron is Trump conservatism. It’s just a different brand of progressivism in which Hilllary’s policies still wind up getting upheld but we build a wall and become more of a security state against illegal immigration. Oh, and he’s going to make better deals than she would.

    @simpleobservations:

    No, actually what he said is that he doesn’t feel he has done anything that requires forgiveness. He said that he does not believe in saying he is sorry, that it is a sign of weakness. Trump never stated what your stating he stated. He doesn’t even talk like that. It’s like your putting your words in his mouth.

  • [2] April 8, 2016 at 6:10am

    How long must we mourn? Will hope come in the morning, or will Trump be elected president? I’m almost positive we cannot have both.

  • [1] April 8, 2016 at 6:05am

    Well considering his career as a lawyer was spent defending religious liberty before the supreme court, no I do not see an issue with it. Christians have just as much right to be lawyers or accountants or CEOs as secularists. The question is, did they act in accordance with God’s will? Cruz did. Is that a red flag? No, Trump is the red flag, and it shows itself every time he opens his mouth.

  • [2] April 8, 2016 at 6:00am

    Cruz is not a pastor nor has he ever held the office of pastor. He is a lawyer, a senator, a former clerk for Rehnquist. His father is the pastor.

    Except Beck has no editorial say in the Blaze. He’s left it to the editor’s to decide what should be included in the Blaze and what shouldn’t.

    @reformedelectorate:

    But there is a requirement for spiritual growth. As a Christian, we should be able to see some kind of fruit out of Trump. But we don’t. In fact, what we do see is the opposite. Rather than love your enemies, you should call them names and try to isolate them. Same statement for blessed is the peacemaker. Trump’s answer for that is that they are weak or low energy or something insulting. Remember the love chapter? Love is not rude. Love does not insult. Love builds up, it does not destroy. Trump is all about the politics of personal destruction. Look at his character assassination of Cruz. Lying Ted, Ted is controlling his super Pacs, Ted cheats in every contest, Ted is some nasty guy. He did the same thing to Marco Rubio, he did the same thing to Ben Carson, he did the same thing to Carly Fiorina, he did the same thing to Chris Christie. The guy is a real nasty guy.

    Jesus stated that we will know them by their fruit. The fruit of the Spirit are love, joy, peace hope, faithfulness, goodness, gentleness, kindness, patience and self control. How many of those fruit do you see in Trump? Do you see the goodness of Jesus in Trump? Do you see Jesus gentleness in Trump? His self control? Just which of the fruit do you see in Trump?
    I’ll tell you what I see. I see 3 marriages. I see numerous affairs. I see corrupt business practices. I see support for establishment candidates in exchange for favors. I see support for Obama in 2009 when he said that Obama was doing a pretty good job. I see him supporting abortion for decades, up until a couple of years ago, just before he announced he would run for president as a republican. I see someone who uses personal insults against his opponents (ala Saul Alinsky), and I see someone who doesn’t know his own principles.

    Retrained? I’m pretty sure the kool aid has a negatively destructive effect on cognitive thought. Scientists are hoping for further analysis to see if the effects can be reversed, but expectations are not high for some of the subjects.

    You figure you can just throw random numbers out there? There has actually been growth at around a 2% clip, much slower than it should be, but still there. The unemployment rate never reached higher than 14%, and that was the original number. The highest it got based upon the new number their using is 11.1%. Not sure where you get the 4 billion dollar number, because the stimulus bill was a trillion dollar bill. Obamacare was 780 billion over 10 years, though they are admittedly up to 1.2 trillion over the next 10 years officially. That number will continue to rise year over year. The dilapidated military budget still exceeds every known nation to man. Our spending on military exceeds all other nations on earth, and in fact if you put all of the European Unions combined military spending, we still exceed them.

    It’s the nation’s soul that is on the line here. We have rejected God from out of our courts, our statehouses, our schools, the democratic party, and now apparently the republican party as well. Jesus said you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. But when we ignore the truth, what happens then? God raises up nations, He also destroys the nations. When He removes His divine protection, His Divine wisdom, and His divine power, where does that lead us if not back to Him? To destruction. We live in a time such as this, where we are sitting on the edge of a cliff. If we do not take the correct steps, we will fall into the abyss.

    Progressives have known this for some time. As such, just as they did in 2009 and 2010, they planted progressives in the middle of the tea party to try to disrupt or cast them in a bad light. It’s the same tactic here, except they are using Trump as the Trojan Horse. He goes out and imitates their perspective and aspersions they’ve cast on conservatives for years. Racist, xenophobic, sexist, ignorant, rich jerks. About 1/3 of the country is drawn to him just based upon his reality show tactics, which really amount to Saul Alinsky, as he’s been led to do by Roger Stone. That is why he uses all the personal insults, it’s an Alinsky style campaign through and through, and Roger Stone is the best there is at running Alinsky Style campaigns.

    It works well in a split field, but when it comes to one on one, it just becomes obvious, and it wh

    In your attempt to demean them, you never bothered to address the issues they raised. You throw around thug comments like this and then wonder why your labeled a thug or a brown shirt? You demean them for pointing out the very behavior your engaging in as you try to demean them. Your proving the point they are making as you demean them. What does that say about your conclusion, if it’s not that you are ignoring the truth and acting just like they accuse you of, proving them right.

    I don’t know what world your living in, but there is more beauty in the world and in creation then there is evil. A sunrise, a sunset, the smile of a beautiful woman, majestic mountains, the blue sky, green grass, butterflies, flowers, etc…
    If you don’t see the beauty in the world it can only because you spend more time focusing on the ugly things in the world rather than seeking out the beauty of creation.
