HOW A CHRISTIAN SHOULD VOTE

In continuing the comparison of the Democrat and Republican Platforms we see that on page fourteen of the Democratic Platfoorm it states: “Ending Systemic Racism: Democrats will fight to end institutional and systemic racism in our society. We will challenge and dismantle the structures that define lasting racial, economic, political, and social inequity. Democrats will promote racial justice through fair, just, and equitable governing of all public-serving institutions and in the formation of public policy. Democrats support removing the Confederate battle flag from public properties, recognizing that it is a symbol of our nation's racist past that has no place in our present or our future. We will push for a societal transformation to make it clear that black lives matter and that there is no place for racism in our country.” This statement comes from the political party that supports Black Lives Matter that believes that the statement All Lives Matter is a racist statement. The hypocrisy is sickening. They also state on that page: “Closing the Racial Wealth Gap: America’s economic inequality problem is even more pronounced when it comes to racial and ethnic disparities in wealth and income. It is unacceptable that the median wealth for African Americans and Latino Americans is roughly one-tenth that of white Americans.” I would like to know why, if you are a specific race, you deserve the same amount of income as another race? I believe that your work effort is what determines your income not the color of your skin.
Concerning immigration their platform is a complete and total joke. On page 16 it states: “Fixing our Broken Immigration System: The United States was founded as, and continues to be, a country of immigrants from throughout the world. It is no coincidence that the Statue of Liberty is one of our most profound national symbols. And that is why Democrats believe immigration is not just a problem to be solved, it is a defining aspect of the American character and our shared history.
The Democratic Party supports legal immigration, within reasonable limits, that meets the needs of families, communities, and the economy as well as maintains the United States’ role as a beacon of hope for people seeking safety, freedom, and security.” Our immigration system isn’t broken, it isn’t being enforced! It hasn’t been enforced by eith Party since Reagan. Yes we are a nation of immigrants but for the most part they are LEGAL immigrants. The Democrats want to legalize all the illegals here now, ignoring our immigration laws and the negative effects that will have on the American worker. The Democrats are looking at votes not caring about the effects on the American people. On page seventeen their platform states: “More than 11 million people are living in the shadows, without proper documentation. The immigration bureaucracy is full of backlogs that result in U.S. citizens waiting for decades to be reunited with family members, and green card holders waiting for years to be reunited with their spouses and minor children. The current quota system discriminates against certain immigrants, including immigrants of color, and needs to be reformed to the realities of the 21st century.” This is their way of saying they want to reward those who have broken our laws, taken jobs away from Americans and have in many cases become leeches to the American taxpayer.
page nineteen we see a major problem for our religious freedoms. The
Democrats support for the homosexuals specifically states that they
will work towards outlawing six thousand years of belief in tradition
“Guaranteeing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Rights: Democrats applaud last year’s decision by the Supreme Court that recognized that LGBT people—like other Americans—have the right to marry the person they love. But there is still much work to be done. LGBT kids continue to be bullied at school, restaurants can refuse to serve transgender people, and same-sex couples are at risk of being evicted from their homes. That is unacceptable and must change.
Democrats will fight for the continued development of sex discrimination law to cover LGBT people. We will also fight for comprehensive federal non-discrimination protections for all LGBT Americans, to guarantee equal rights in areas such as housing, employment, public accommodations, credit, jury service, education, and federal funding. We will oppose all state efforts to discriminate against LGBT individuals, including legislation that restricts the right to access public spaces. We support a progressive vision of religious freedom that respects pluralism and rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate.” They are going to fight to make all businesses and this will include churches to open their restrooms to perverts! They will also “support a progressive vision of religious freedom that respects pluralism and rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate”. What that means is the traditional view of marriage will have to go and we will be forced to accept marriage of all kinds, man-man, woman-woman, two women-man, two man-woman and the list will go on and on. I have read that someone has come up with fifty seven genders! My Bible says there are only two.
On page twenty six we see an outright lie on past, current and probable future Democrat fiscal responsibility. Keeping in mind that all ghetto’s in America are governed by Democrats and have been for decades in most cases. Detroit used to be a wealthy city with one of the nation’s highest income per capita but since 1962 it has been under the control of Democrats. Today it is a complete disaster.
California is in shambles, Chicago isn’t far behind. “Strengthening Management of Federal Government: Democrats understand responsible fiscal stewardship is key to American democracy and to the country’s long-term economic prosperity. We believe that by making those at the top and the largest corporations pay their fair share we can pay for ambitious progressive investments that create good-paying jobs and offer security to working families without adding to the debt.
This stands in contrast to Donald Trump, whose plans could add more than $30 trillion to the debt and who casually suggests defaulting on America’s debt, ending more than 200 years in which the full faith and credit of the United States has been sacrosanct.” The comment “This stands in contrast to Donald Trump, whose plans could add more than $30 trillion to the debt and who casually suggests defaulting on America’s debt, ending more than 200 years in which the full faith and credit of the United States has been sacrosanct.” is a complete joke. Obama and the Democrats have added over ten trillion dollars to our debt in the last eight years with their spend, spend, spend policies.
Remember Obama saying he would cut the debt in half his first four years? He spent more the first six months than all previous presidents combined! And the fact that Trump would end more than 200 years of excellent US credit rating. Obama did that two years ago by spending so much that our rating was dropped from AAA to AA.
The last point I want to bring up about the Democrat Platform is their stand on ‘climate change’. Again this is nothing more than a form of wealth redistribution’. On page 27 it states: “Democrats share a deep commitment to tackling the climate challenge; creating millions of good-paying middle class jobs; reducing greenhouse gas emissions more than 80 percent below 2005 levels by 2050; and meeting the pledge President Obama put forward in the landmark Paris Agreement, which aims to keep global temperature increases to “well below” two degrees Celsius and to pursue efforts to limit global temperature increases to 1.5 degrees Celsius. We believe America must be running entirely on clean energy by mid-century.” First off, the Paris Agreement has not been ratified by the Senate and from what I have heard it will not be.
Even the government information shows that there has been no warming for the last 18 years. Al Gore stated in 2000 that by 2015 the polar caps would be gone. Just to prove that God has a sense of humor in 2015 BOTH polar caps had record ise caps.
The Democrat Platform itself shows us that a true Christian cannot vote for any candidate that is in that Party because a vote for that candidate is a vote for that platform and that platform is the most ungodly platform in American history.
This has not been an exhaustive study of the Democrat Platform but I hope it is enough to make you want to look at the whole thing especially if you are a Christian and a Democrat. The Platform can be found online on the Democrat Party homepage.
Next week we will look at the Republican Platform.
