Trump Won My Vote Tonight

     As a matter of fact I do, and always have had, a so-called “litmus test” for the casting of my vote in ANY and ALL elections……..I vote for life. Who will stand for life? Who will protect the unborn? Who will call this nation back from the brink of the abyss of wretchedness.  I have made it no secret that I will never – not ever – support a political candidate, nor will I ever cast a vote for any man or woman who will not defend life; who will not stand up against the murderous descent into barbarism that has gripped this nation. I don’t care what their policies might be, be they economic, foreign, or domestic – if a man or woman who wants my vote will not run to the aid of the innocent, they can pound sand. I truly have no interest in anything else they might have to say. 

“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you;” Jeremiah 1:5

     There are many things about President Trump that I don’t like. His ego is dangerously big, and he shoots off his mouth when he should remain silent. He picks fights when he ought to make peace, and Lord, I wish someone would smash his cell phone and cancel his Twitter account!  He is smart, but often he is not wise. I did not vote for President Trump in 2016. I supported another candidate who stood for life and who espoused policies that I could more honestly stand with. As well, my candidate was a spiritual man who demonstrates many of the Christ-like fruit of the spirit that I did not see in Candidate Trump. He didn’t have a chance of winning, but I voted without feeling that I had sold out my conscience.

     However, I will vote for Mr. Trump in 2020. I will vote for him not because I believe he has conquered all of his personal demons, or because he has suddenly become the man that I think he should be.

I will vote for him because he has the courage to stand before a Congress compromised by the presence of cold-blooded, conscienceless, legislative killers and call them out.  

     It was not all I wanted – but it was more than I’ve heard from any American President in recent history. These are the words that purchased my vote:

“There could be no greater contrast to the beautiful image of a mother holding her infant child than the chilling displays our nation saw in recent days.

Lawmakers in New York cheered with delight upon the passage of legislation that would allow a baby to be ripped from the mother’s womb moments before birth. These are living, feeling, beautiful babies who will never get the chance to share their love and dreams with the world.

And then, we had the case of the governor of Virginia where he stated he would execute a baby after birth. To defend the dignity of every person, I am asking Congress to pass legislation to prohibit the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother’s womb.

Let us work together to build a culture that cherishes innocent life.”

And let us reaffirm a fundamental truth — all children — born and unborn— are made in the holy image of God.

Donald J. Trump, State of the Union Address, February 5, 2019

The smug faces of politicians at the sound of these words drew the battle lines for me. The subtle smirks at the mention of the pain of infants being murdered in their mother’s womb disgusts me as they wage an unholy warfare in the name of “women’s health care.”  There is no logical argument to be made that health care can include the murder of one human being for the convenience of another, and not occasionally – but in the millions and millions. It is insane. It is grossly inhumane. It is demonically driven.

I ache for the innocent babies who have been brutalized in what should be the safest place on the planet. I weep for the women who have been deceived into believing that killing their baby is the best and only choice for them. They have literally been preyed upon, victimized, by the entrepreneurs of abortion who have transformed abortion from a cottage industry into a corporate giant that gorges itself upon millions of dollars in public funds.

No, my anger is not toward the victims of this heinous crimes – the mothers and the babies; but for the profiteers who have made, and continue to make, millions from the blood of the innocent. I continue to be amazed by the support of Planned Parenthood by black men and women, who have been blinded to the truth and are unable to see the eraser marks in the history books that have rubbed out the true goal of Margaret Sanger’s work – the eradication of the black population. Sanger continues to be memorialized as a pioneer of women’s health care when she little more than a clever racist, focused upon the control of the black population.

These days, of course, it’s all about the money. The power behind it is the Devil himself, but there is an abundance of greedy men and women willing to make a killing, literally, in the abortion industry.  If you don’t think it’s ultimately about the money, you’re not paying attention.

There may be many things that Donald J. Trump and I don’t agree on, but I tell you this; I will stand shoulder to shoulder with him in this battle. Abortion is an abomination before God (and it ought to be before any reasonable man with any semblance of a conscience.) It is a blight upon our nation and a stench in the nostrils of God. I believe the so called pro-choice gang is calling down the wrath of God upon this nation.

I want to be found on the right side of this battle.

    My sentiments exactly!
    I didn’t vote for him either, but share in his bold proclamation.
    As a former NICU nurse, a mother of 4, and a supporter of life for decades with recent volunteer work with mothers and babies, I’ve been horrified by the recent Amendment to Roe vs. Wade. His goal to overthrow this new law heartens me and I’ve too, changed my opinion about him and will join in this effort.

    I too am sickened by the latest legislation of NY and now Vermont. I am also sickened by the lack of empathy and downright judgement of poor women who choose to keep their baby yet the GOP is continually cutting funding to help support a baby once its born. You can’t say you are for life – yet with cold calculation (and lack or empathy) cut funding and programs designed to help said baby. How can one say they are for life yet oppose everything that supports life? Another point of contention is that there have been many opportunities for the GOP to reverse Roe v Wade but from some reason didn’t get it done. You’re being lied to Mike. That guy only cares about one thing – money. He is a liar and a thief. He is an adulterer. You can still stand for life but not for Trump. By your logic – he could steal, kill, and destroy so long as he opposed abortion – and you would still support him?

    Thank you Mike, this is a horror that our country will suffer for. We are more like Sodom and Gamora than the nation our founding fathers had in mind.

    I stand in agreement with Pastor Gantt on this one for sure. I did however vote for our President Trump in 2016 with no ill affect to my conscience as he stood for life then. He was the last remaining candidate that did. I pray for him everyday, that God would continue to keep the hedge of safety about him that He has placed there, that He would keep him steadfast and bold in the face of all the hate thrown at him, most importantly the hate of all things good and the promotion of all things evil as good. ( ” Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.” ~ Isaiah 5:20) In response to one of the comments on here I say, who will be the first among us to cast the first stone? And some of the accusations you make are unfounded, the accusations are however founded in hate, most probably motivated by the media and their destructive agenda against all things good. I agree also with Pastor Gantt when he says the devil himself is at the helm of this agenda. Meanwhile, we know who wins in the end, for the battle has already been won.

    Mike, I am proud to say I voted for Trump even though he is a narcissistic, bombastic, blowhard who is as imperfect a person as I am. He is however, a very successful person in his own right who put all of that success on the line in order to try and drain the swamp. He didn’t need this job. The job needs him. He loves this country and understands how it was originally constituted. It takes an assertive, confident, powerful man to go into that cesspool and take on the oligarchy that has brought this country to the brink of disaster. I would not have voted for him if he did not position himself against abortion and have a chance to nominate a supreme court justice who would stand against Roe v. Wade. The feminists who are promoting the war on men and babies hate him because he is not afraid of them and the establishment is afraid of him because he is not one of them. Jesus said we are to pray for our leaders. Let’s all just pray that God will give him Wisdom and the will to persevere under circumstances which are designed to undermine his efforts. Let’s not judge him in the province of conjecture like the academics, oligarchy and media elite prefer to do, let’s look at his already impressive record of accomplishments and resign ourselves to facts without judgment on his flawed personality.

    President Trump did a great job in his SOTU speech and I loved his standing up for the unborn. My prayers are for him and for this nation. Thanks for sharing.

    Having not found Mr. Trump a credible candidate, I did not vote for him. and at the same time, I found no credible candidate on the ballot. As a registered Republican in Vermont, I was beyond dismay. I voted, ‘None Of The Above’, as it was my wish that such a critical mass of like-minded voters would have achieved enough critical mass (a plurality) to throw the election results of such a united disapproval into Congress for a first-ever, ‘crisis of confidence’. I viewed such a national confrontation as superior to where we are now. I view Mr. Trump as using Pro-Life sentiment to further his cause. So, here we are. Shall we support what is right for the wrong reasons? And what will come of that? Ignorance of the truth is no shield from consequences.
