THE STAKES ARE HIGH: Is Donald Trump the Better of Two Very Imperfect Candidates?

A recent column addressed the issue of conservatives who are planning on casting their votes for Hillary Clinton instead of Donald Trump. If anyone claims to be a conservative, but plans to vote for Hillary, they are delusional or deceptive.

Hillary will simply give us an extension of the Leftist Obama Administration – more of the same – probably worse. Trump is definitely the better of two imperfect choices. The results of his election are potentially more favorable than what we would expect from a Hillary presidency, e.g.: Trump will surround himself with relatively conservative, proven performers – Hillary will not. Trump will appoint conservative justices – Hillary will do just the opposite. Trump will give us new direction and more responsible leadership – Hillary will give us more of the same. And yes, Trump will be imperfect – Hillary will be even worse. By failing to vote for Trump and/or by failing to vote at all, one is in effect voting for Hillary.

Mitt Romney lost because irrational Christians failed to vote for a Mormon and/or to support his candidacy. That gave us eight years of Obama, Progressivism, an entitlement society, increasing secularism, economic irresponsibility, and an overall decline in the American-Way. By failing to vote for Romney, Christians voted for Obama and enabled his anti-Christian ideology. Heaven forbid that self-righteous Christians do the same thing again – by failing to support the better of two imperfect choices!

Matt Barber in a recent piece seems to ignore the fact that Christ loves sinners. God, in fact, has made productive use of sinners throughout history. Even Moses killed a man.

Trump may be a populist, but he is certainly more conservative than Hillary. Trump’s election will preserve Republican control of the House and Senate and enable more conservative overall governance via Congress and the White House. Failure to support Trump will undermine the support of congressional Republicans. Many people come out to vote for the president. If they withhold their vote for president, they will probably withhold a vote for congressional candidates. The notion that the Trump candidacy will hurt the undercard is ridiculous. Not voting for him will do that.

A Hilary victory will defeat Conservativism for many decades and perhaps forever – with her Leftist nomination of at least three liberal Supreme Court Justices . . . and the likely loss of the Senate and perhaps even the House.

Defeating Hillary and the congressional Dems must be a top priority for those who value the American-Way and the American Prosperity Machine. The election of Trump will enhance these traditional American values.
