WHY OUTSIDERS ARE POLLING STRONGER THAN REPUBLICAN ELITES
Pastor Roger Anghis
November 22, 2015
This election cycle we are seeing two outsiders, ones that have not been involved in the political arena before, taking center stage in the election process. The Republican elites are scratching their heads trying to figure out how to bring them down. I guess that the elites have forgotten that we have a representative government and we elect people that we want to represent us. The Republican elite want us to elect people they want us to elect and they get upset if we don’t cow-tow to their demands.
It is obvious that the Republican elite want Jeb Bush as the candidate and it is obvious that the people don’t want Jeb Bush. It isn’t hard to figure it out. Jeb Bush represents the established Republicans, who have done nothing to help the American people when given the opportunity specifically in the 2014 election. The establishment Republicans cried to us that if we gave them a bigger majority in the House and a majority in the Senate they would stop Obama’s amnesty program and slow him down in other areas. We gave them what they asked for and Obama’s amnesty went through both houses like greased lightning. Nothing has been slowed. His spending continues. He is still decimating our military. He won’t do anything about terror groups, he won’t even call them terror groups! With this kind of performance is it any wonder why the American people get excited about a candidate that talks about the issues the American people are concerned about?
When Donald Trump announced his candidacy for President the first thing he brought up was the illegal immigration problem. No other candidate wanted to talk about it but the American people know that it is a major problem. He has stated that the Syrians coming here now should not come because there is no way to vet them. He also stated that he would send them back. He was lambasted for making that statement but what we are seeing in France today makes that a pretty good plan. The majority of Congress in both Houses have been saying for years that we have a ‘broken immigration system’. We don’t have a broken immigration system, we have an immigration system that authorities will not enforce! That is the only reason it isn’t working. Donald Trump is willing to do what is needed to solve the problem. We need a fence, Congress won’t fund the fence. They’ll fund Arabic nations that hate us, but they won’t fund a fence that will protect the American people. Congress voted a few years back to build the fence, even the Democrat controlled Senate under Dingy Harry but they voted against funding it. The Democrat Party gets free voters and now the Republicans want to do the same. The American people want the border closed, both Parties want it open. Jeb Bush thinks we need to respect people that sneak across our border and are leaches to the American people. Donald Trump believes that the illegals need to respect the American people. This is our country not theirs!
Obama’s deal with Iran is a disaster. As far as I’m concerned it’s an act of treason. They’re shouting Death to America and he gives them the pathway to a bomb to accomplish that threat! Trump believes that it is a very bad deal and has vowed to redo it as president. The American people don’t like the deal. America gets nothing. No released prisoners, we can’t inspect the facilities and Iran gets everything they wanted!
Donald Trump knows business. There is no other Republican or Democrat candidate that has the experience or knowledge that Trump has domestic and international. He knows how business operates and how to create jobs and make money. We need an executive that has that kind of knowledge. Obama has no experience or knowledge in that field at all as none of the other candidates do either. We need to cut spending and neither Party is willing to do that. Trump knows where to cut and has the guts to demand that Congress cut the budget. He’s not afraid not speak his mind. He’s not politically correct and will expose corrupt people without a second thought. He’ll address the problem of radical mosques teaching jihad in America. He would shut them down as they should be. I believe that he will confront the jihad camps that are in America that neither Party is willing to even talk about.
All in all Donald Trump is a man who wants the best for the people of America and America itself. His motto, Make America Great Again resonates with the people. The two Parties want what’s best for the Party not the people or the nation. The disdain for Trump is not just for Trump but the people who are able to see the problems that the elite refuse to recognize or refuse to admit to. Americans are tired of Obama traveling the global apologizing for America’s greatness. They are tired of the Democrat Party throwing God aside in place of their immoral social policies. They are tired of Obama siding with muslims and spitting in the face of Christians, exempting muslims from Obamacare for ‘religious’ reasons but forcing Christian organizations to participate in aspects of it that violate their religious beliefs. David Limbaugh in an article he wrote blames the established Republican Party for creating the rise of Trump and other ‘outsiders’. Americans are sick of Obama's trashing America's founding, assaulting capitalism, and bellowing about man-made global warming as a pretense to impose more liberty-smothering regulations. They are nauseated by politicians who are more interested in bipartisanship with scofflaws than with saving the nation.
People are mortified by the nation's fiscal instability, our unbridled national debt, its spiraling entitlements and Washington's refusal to address them. They are sick of the fraudulent spending "cuts." They have had their fill of the lies, especially about Obamacare, whose costs dwarf Obama's promised projections and are getting worse by the day. They've reached their limit with this administration's rewarding unemployment and laziness while punishing work, its honoring socialism and demonizing capitalism. We the People have had enough of inaction by the Republican elite and as we did in 1980, we will elect who WE want not who they want.
Ben Carson is the other candidate that has made progress with the voters that is not the typical politician. He has made some good strides with evangelicals. But Santorum did too but only in a few states. Evangelicals have not had a candidate they liked for the last two presidential elections. In 2014 only 30% of evangelicals voted. This is why Obama is still in office. It seems that unless the candidate quotes scripture all the time he isn’t worthy of their vote. That’s too bad because that’s what God intended for us to do. They are looking for the perfect candidate and for some reason they don’t understand that we’ve never had a perfect candidate. Jesus isn’t running for any office so all we have is the lesser of two evils.
Carson gained attention at a speaking engagement where Obama attended and he dissed Obama. He didn’t tell a lie, he spoke the truth but because he did that everyone thought he ought to run for president. He has accomplished a lot in his life culminating with being a world renowned brain surgeon. He has character that the White House has none of today but there is nothing in his background that will enhance the presidency. He has even stated that the only reason he is running is because some people said he should. New York Times columnist Ross Douthat noted that evangelical affinity for Carson reflected a misbegotten search for a godly hero: “This is part of why evangelical Christians, notwithstanding their numbers, tend to have less influence over actual Republican governance than fiscal conservatives or foreign-policy hawks. They're always looking for a hero (or heroine), while the party's other factions focus on staffing decisions and policy commitments, where the real work of politics takes place.” [The New York Times]
To be more explicit: Evangelicals will not win by looking for an anointed man of God and giving him license to whip the rest of the Republican Party and country into shape. These efforts are a way of seceding from normal American politics, both as a matter of imagination and as a practical endeavor of networking and staffing. The Carson campaign is a despair of politics, an attempt to outsource a movement's hustle and everyday righteousness to a single hero.
The evangelicals, for the most part, stay out of politics because it is so corrupt but they fail to realize that for it not to be corrupt, it has to have their influence and with only 30% of them voting every 4 to 8 years isn’t going to cut it. They want the Christian influence but won’t get involved. Their ‘I won’t vote for the lesser of two evils’ rhetoric only shows their ignorance as we’ve never had any other choices but the lesser of two evils. The 60% who didn’t vote might as well have voted for Obama because that is what their actions did.
Do we need new blood in D.C. Of course we do and I believe God can use a man like Trump to do it and get America back on track and Make America Great Again.
