I mean we have all these non-Christians democrats always advocating for every single mortal sin and taking it to the bounds thereof. We have a bunch of shelf space available and furnaces ready to go. I mean hello what are we waiting for?

You're fine except for the parts in red. You may not think you're a republitard, but the way you take o their punch and cookies says different. And the red pill is no more rooted in reality than the blue. And the dark ages looking bleak? You've never read Revelation, have you?
Not a republican, I am not American, I consider myself a Conservative ie. ......limited government, free market economy

Revelations, okay I guess you think the USA is the whore of Babylon too....:LOL:

I, myself am only going to vote for issues not candidates. I don't have to pick a side or chose a person to lead or follow. None of the above is my vote regarding human leadership. I oppose abortion and pollution I would be in favor of allowing a minute of silent prayer in public schools every morning and if evolution is a requirement teach creation too. Or allowing parents to decide not to force their children to receive an atheist education, because it's free..

We've got to get serious about bovine, swine and chicken waste. We were not put here to loot and pillage the planet but going back to Genesis 2 v 15 "The Lord God took the man (Adam) and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it." NIV. We are all stewards of God's creation and not pirates preying upon it.

Since I can't help but to want to inform the ignorant, and it won't work anyway, and it's a waste of time, I'm hitting the ignore button.

Try not to be surprised when things turn out to not be the way you've been sold

It's going to turn out the way the Book of Revelations says it will and we can't stop it or change it.

Well you may be happy to know that "The Green New Deal" will do away with cows, planes and petroleum, however I am not sure they are dealing with the chicken, swine and bovine waste problem?

But I sincerely do wonder how a pirate preys upon the land??

Not all rich people are evil, mean or unfair. But how can we drain the swamp unless we get the corruption out and money is what it feeds on.
The swamp is not about money, money is a means to an end.....the swamp is about power, working against the constitution.

Perhaps dig a little deeper and stay away from the Mockingbird Media to better understand the world we live in.

The question is, should we even try?
I think that would be a waste of time. I will just vote like the Lord is watching (because he is.). Ignore the rhetoric, the politicians and share the gospel that Jesus is risen, he's alive, and is returning soon.

Ironically the "swamp" has been drained. Every single person involved with Trump has been arrested... Good thing. Right? Maybe after he is gone things will get back to semi normal... Grown ups truly have to get back in charge...
I am always amused when someone openly advocates being a person 100% dedicated to Liberal dogma while also saying they are a Christian. The Democrat party is 100% corrupt, and more to the point, 100% amoral from a spiritual and biblical point of view. They openly advocate abortion and homosexuality, which the Bible condemns. They invent racism where none exists, they invent patriarchy, misogyny and white supremacy where none exists.

Why would a Christian support a political party that openly advocates things the Bible condemns?

If you hear a lie often enough "that the democratic party is the compassionate party" then one believes it.

They think money is far more evil than everything you have listed above.

Also somehow they have also come to believe, very erroneously, that the dem party is the party of the disadvantaged.

Really those that support a leftist agenda are filled with envy of the rich so they are willing to overlook everything else.

So we leave the world to believe lies ....

I suggest you watch a movie on Youtube called "Sophie Scholl" and then consider the fall out when one moves towards apathy

With each president will come more and more dissatisfaction with political leaders regardless of who they are. As our Lord's return approaches, we're going to see more political unrest than we have ever before. Personally, I need to make sure that my relationship with God is in a place in which He drains the swamp of my heart each day and every moment. Once I allow an internal draining to happen can I then begin to focus on the external political realm. Please don't misunderstand me, I am concerned with our country's future, but it would be fool hearty not to be more concerned with my own heart first.

I think we should pray for whoever is in office, I don't listen to the media, they want things to look bad to the people so they can have news.... God is in control and we should pray to him and not judge

Good topic, I’m all Trump, I believe he has the country’s best interests at heart!
