I think a lot of the Trump supporters are FED UP with the Federal government–or at least those in office. Both Demicans and Republocrats have been slowly eating away at our freedoms right under our noses. Well, enough of us are finally starting to notice. That and the dual threat of illegal immigrants and Islam have brought some to their senses. I know that most of the readers here already have their senses, but slowly more are awakening. At least Trump is not a career politician but a businessman. He is a political outsider, which, to many, is a huge plus.
Note: There is no such thing as “radical” Islam and “moderate” Islam–the “moderate” Muslims are here to have us believe Islam is peaceful, but they still celebrate everything the “radical” Muslims do. They have learned to play the “poor me” victim card for sympathy.
Also, we need to be aware of the terminology hair-splitting that Muslims do. To them, they do not support terrorism, but do support, encourage, and MANDATE jihad. Their definition of terrorism is that which creates fear in others without furthering Islam. Jihad creates fear in others by promoting or advancing Islam. It’s those little nuances they use in a double-speak way that confuses the left wing. We need to call these “terrorist” acts “jihadist” acts instead, as that is what they really are in the minds of Muslims.
We just need to know that Islam is at war with us. We need to elect a president that will deal with that in a way that protects the citizens of the US.
Islam is a product of the devil. The “Allah” that they worship is a pagan moon god–not the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob. Muslims deny that their “Allah” is the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob. They do try to claim that theirs is the God of Abraham, though, but because they deny the rest, their god is not the one true God.

Don’t EVER eat Taco Bell on the way home from a week at Boy Scout Camp! My son found out why….

“Allahu akbar” can’t mean “God is great.” What they worship as “Allah” is a pagan moon god, not the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob. No muslim will honestly say that their god is the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob.
Since their Allah is not God, it must be the devil. So “Allahu akbar” means “the devil is great.”
Little food for thought:
Arabian Christians pray, obviously, to the christian God.
Yet they adress him as Allah.
Just for you.

Good. Ruining YOUR evening became the sprinkles on my ice cream cake!

Blaming the government isn’t the answer, but removing those in office is a start. We need to limit government and not let those that want POWER OVER US back into office. We need people that SERVE in office. Unfortunately, they are very hard to come by. The few that do not want POWER fear that they will be seduced by that power the government can wield and get infected by it. By making government smaller, it will have less of a chance of attracting those that want POWER and more that wish to SERVE might apply.

Inclusion of evil IS a bad thing. Conservatives wish to eliminate it, which is a GOOD thing.
July 18, 2016 at 1:09pm
Discrimination is not a bad thing. We MUST discriminate good from evil and work to eliminate the latter. By accepting good and evil as equals (moral relativism) we allow evil to flourish. It will then consume us. One manifestation of this is Islam. Look what has happened to many of the countries in the middle east. Look what is happening in Turkey this past week. Evil is now eliminating everything else there.

Agreed. One wouldn’t encourage a person with anorexia to continue down the path that leads to malnutrition and death. One shouldn’t encourage other mental illnesses, either, such as the LGBT illness.
As one should intervene in helping or steering towards help someone afflicted with anorexia, one should intervene in helping or steering towards help someone afflicted with one of the LGBT illnesses.
That is called love.

Hating the homosexual? No.
Disapproving of homosexual acts (i.e. following Biblical teaching)? Yes.
Hate the sin. Love the sinner.
We all have our crosses to bear. The homosexual has his homosexuality as one of his/hers.

That is why I left the United Methodist church back in 1989 and joined the Catholic church. My mom was the church organist in the UM church I was raised in. I was involved in youth and adult choirs and in handbell choirs. But I felt I was missing something intangible.
One clue was when I realized that “communion Sunday” was the least-attended church service of the month. Another was when I thought about the UM church law that alcohol was not to be consumed (thus grape juice at communion) but yet the ministers and staff regularly drank alcohol (wine) at staff parties outside of church. Very hypocritical. I didn’t respect the leadership in the local church and felt I couldn’t belong.

“Outdated thinking” means “moral relativism”–which is evil.
One problem with progressives is that they think evil is just another valid viewpoint, to be treated equally with others. Evil needs to be eliminated–not accepted as an equal.

By electing anti-Christian (boasting beliefs that go against Christ) leaders, the members are destroying the church.
I’m glad I left the United Methodist Church back in 1989. Even back then, the Wesley Foundation pastor was taking us on field trips to “new age” so-called churches that totally rewrote things such as the Lord’s Prayer (you DON’T mess with that!).

Pure Socialism involves no need for government. It relies on people being altruistic–everyone! Fat chance that’s gonna happen. When that fails, a government is formed to “create” a socialist state, but that means those in government–in power–dictate to those not in power how to share their wealth, but those in power never share theirs after taking it from those not in power.
The term Socialist Government is an oxymoron. It is a dictatorship of the government over the people–not a socialist construct. Whether you use the term Socialist, Communist, Fascist, Progressive, it does not matter. They only vary in specifics, but all involve the power of the government OVER the people–opposite of what the Founding Fathers envisioned.
They are ALL EVIL and should be eliminated from the face of the earth. The Federal Government should only be here for the common defense of the country and to settle differences between the sovereign States.

That domain is for sale and has generic links on it. I don’t think it is what you intended. If it is, which link are we to choose?

And now blacks are the ones both following Democrats instead of Republicans, and preventing Republicans (or even whites) from voting!

“Rein in”??? How about eliminate? As in eliminate entire unnecessary agencies and departments, such as the EPA, Dept of Education, etc.

Hey, Boston Globe–the “IT” should be “THEM” (“TERRORISTS”)! It should read “Make TERRORISTS STOP!” No-gun zones attract gun-toting jihadists, don’t you know. (I’m guessing you don’t.) By arming the citizenry, we present a defense to these vermin and an over-reaching government.
