Everybody seems to agree that this whole election cycle has been, to put it mildly, quite messy. Some have already made up their minds about which candidate they would vote for, and others are still undecided. Some are actually backing a third party presidential candidate, which is really pointless, as I will point out in a few moments.
But before I lay out these arguments on why this election is so crucial, why you should go out and vote, and why you should vote for one of the two major parties’ presidential candidates (and not for a third party presidential candidate), let me be very clear: You must go out and vote, because a whole generation is about to be impacted. It’s not about the next FOUR years. It’s about the next FORTY years, because of the SUPREME COURT.
With that said, let’s begin our discussion of why this election is so crucial, and why you must absolutely go out and vote for one of the two major parties’ presidential candidates, starting with what I think is the main issue – the SUPREME COURT.
See the text to this article under the video below...
1. The Supreme Court
In a way, you are not so much as voting for the future president, whoever he or she may be. You are actually voting for the SUPREME COURT. Because whoever the president is, he or she will appoint as many as possibly FOUR new Supreme Court justices.
Currently, there are eight supreme court justices instead of nine, due to the untimely death of Anthony Scalia. Four out of the eight have conservative leanings, and the other four liberal. The president-to-be has to immediately appoint a new Supreme Court justice to take Scalia’s place. If he/she is conservative, it will tip the Supreme Court into that direction. And if he/she is liberal, it will tip it the other way.
And there is a history of ruling after ruling by the Supreme Court that changed the polity of America, by just that one vote. Gay marriage with a 5-4 vote is a good example.
We have only been speaking here of ONE Supreme Court justice appointment, but THERE ARE FOUR SUPREME COURT JUSTICE APPOINTMENTS AT STAKE! Because over the next four years (or eight years if the next president gets reelected) THE FIRST will be appointed because of the Supreme Court vacancy left by Scalia’s death, and THREE MORE are very old, and may not be around much longer.
If all four are conservative, decisions that impact our country will be led in that direction, and vice versa.
Since 1971 the average age of retirement of a Supreme Court Justice has been just a little over 78 years. Okay, let’s see what the ages of the oldest current justices are: Ginsburg is 83, Kennedy is 80, and Breyer is 78. It is very likely that the next president will not only appoint the vacant post, but also three more, as the oldest justices either retire or die over the next four or eight years.
Even if you don’t like some things a certain presidential candidate said or did, remember that he or she will appoint justices that will make Supreme Court decisions for an entire generation. Even if someone else gets elected as president 4 or 8 years from now, the Supreme Court justices remain for many, many years – until they retire or die.
So who do the two presidential candidates say will they appoint? Clinton says, among other things she would appoint justices that are pro-abortion and pro-LGBTQ (i.e. Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Queer). That’s right, Clinton will favor a Supreme Court that favors Sodomy – a sin condemned in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. That’s right, she will appoint justices to a Supreme Court that would favor the brutal butchering of our most vulnerable – our unborn – those whose silent voices we cannot hear, whose safe place of a womb will become their tomb.
Now, if you favor pro-abortion and pro-Sodomy, make sure you vote for Clinton, because if Trump gets in, it will be completely different. Let’s see what Trump will do, because what Trump will do will be exactly the opposite. This is what he said in the debate, “I feel that the justices that I am going to appoint - and I've named 20 of them - the justices that I'm going to appoint will be pro-life. They will have a conservative bent. They will be protecting the Second Amendment. They are great scholars in all cases, and they're people of tremendous respect. They will interpret the Constitution the way the founders wanted it interpreted”.
If we end this discussion right here, we have enough reason to believe that this election is one of the most important elections ever, and that it will effect our country for at least a generation. Both young conservative justices as well as young liberal conservative justices, who will live for many years will decide major important issues for a whole generation, which in turn will effect many more generations to come.
- Clinton said she will appoint left leaning, liberal justices;
- Trump said he will appoint right leaning, conservative justices;
- A third party candidate has no chance of winning and will therefore not appoint any justices no matter what he/she says
Now that we have emphasized the single most reason why we should vote, namely for sake of the Supreme Court, we will now move on to actual issues. For this portion, I will present the Christian Coalition’s guide and another Voter’s Guide that lists the positions of Trump and Clinton on the issues. Here they are:
Here is another Voter Guide, by Vision America:
3. The Dishonest Media
Now we will deal with the powers that be, particularly the Dishonest Media. News are at our fingertips. We have access to it online, by newspapers and television. It would be one thing if the media merely reports the news, but the major media outlets don’t just report it. Rather, they operate in a way that is intent on manipulating public opinion. We will look at a few examples here, and here’s the point: Are we going to be influenced by the left-leaning, liberal media’s manipulation, or will we think for ourselves, see through the lies and vote according to our Christian conscience.
I am personally offended and disgusted by Trump’s choice of words and his absolutely inappropriate vulgar language in a video eleven years ago. The media has played those words over and over and over again, so we are not going to repeat them here. We are already well aware of those disgusting, inappropriate words. But if the media is honest, they would bring up Hillary Clinton’s own alleged language, such as,
"Where is the G-damn f**king flag? I want the G-damn f**king flag up every f**king morning at f**king sunrise." (From the book "Inside The White House" by Ronald Kessler, p. 244 - Hillary to the staff at the Arkansas Governor's mansion on Labor Day, 1991)
"You sold out, you mother f**ker! You sold out!"(From the book "Inside" by Joseph Califano, p. 213 - Hillary yelling at Democrat lawyer.)
"F**k off! It's enough that I have to see you sh*t-kickers every day, I'm not going to talk to you too!! Just do your G*damn job and keep your mouth shut." (From the book "American Evita" by Christopher Anderson, p. 90 - Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with "Good morning."
"If you want to remain on this detail, get your f**king ass over here and grab those bags!"
(From the book "The First Partner" p. 259 - Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free in case of an incident.)
"Get f**ked! Get the f**k out of my way!!! Get out of my face!!!" (From the book "Hillary's Scheme" p. 89 — Hillary's various comments to her Secret Service detail agents.)
"Stay the f**k back, stay the f**k away from me! Don't come within ten yards of me, or else! Just f**king do as I say, Okay!!!?" (From the book "Unlimited Access", by Clinton FBI Agent in Charge, Gary Aldrige, p. 139 - Hillary screaming at her Secret Service detail.)
I am equally offended and disgusted by these words, but hey, Hillary is not running for the First Mother at the Nunnery. But here is my point: The media has totally ignored her foul language, and rather focused on Trump’s foul language. If the media was honest, they would have been equally as hard on both candidates.
The media has been one-sided and dishonest when it comes to the ALLEGED sexual conduct of either candidates. I say “alleged”, because that is all it is – alleged. Any person can at any time say anything about anybody, but does that mean that the person accused is in fact guilty? “Well,” someone says, “…where there’s a smoke there’s a fire…”.
About ten women came forward, accusing Trump of inappropriate advances towards them. Trump has called these accusations "100% fabricated and made-up" in order to "poison the minds of the American Voter." Of course we never know what we don’t know. But the media has broadcasted these allegations with no evidence or any real hint of proof to validate these accusations whatsoever.
And here is the point: Though the media has lavishly and blatantly broadcasted these accusations against Trump, they have not done the same regarding Hillary Clinton’s alleged Lesbian relationships.
Under the heading, “YOKO ONO: “I HAD AN AFFAIR WITH HILLARY CLINTON IN THE ’70S”, a report about Ono and Hillary’s relationship reveals it to be Lesbian. Yoko Ono was John Lennon’s wife. Ono reportedly said this, “We met many times during the New York Vietnam War protests in the 1970s, and became very intimate. We shared many of the same values about sexual equality, fighting against the authoritarian, patriarchal, male-dominated society we were raised in… We had a brief romantic fling when I lived with John in Manhattan and Hillary was studying at Yale, but eventually we lost touch. I am amazed how things are going well for her and wish her the best for her campaign” .
There is a whole list of Hillary’s alleged Lesbian lovers, including her alleged most recent relationship with Huma Abedin. Hopefully, all of these allegations are false.
I hope these reports are not true. America has fallen so far already. But here’s my point: The media has loudly broadcasted unverified reports about Trump, but said nothing or very little about Hillary Clinton’s alleged Lesbian affairs. Whether or not either person is guilty of these terrible allegations, the point is - the media flagrantly reports such unsubstantiated allegations about Trump, but don't do the same with Hillary. (Note: I have since seen a website that claims the Yoko Ono story is a hoax. If this is true that is great, but it confirms my point: The media flagrantly broadcasts unsubstantiated stories about Trump but don't do the same about Hillary).
We can continue on this topic when it comes to how Trump and Clinton’s financial dealings have been reported on by the media.
We can also talk about how the media distracted the negative revelations of Hillary Clinton on Wikileaks, by the media immediately changing the subject to allegations that “the Russians hacked” something, and thereby making the news reports about an alleged Russian hack, instead of the leaked information about Hillary Clinton.
We can continue about the intentional planting of people by Clinton support organizations to cause violence at Trump’s rallies.
We can also talk about the plans by these same groups to induce massive election fraud with illegal immigrant votes – yes non-citizens voting for the future president of the USA. And how these same groups are actively working on their plans to have people vote for Hillary twice, across state lines, with a detailed, workable plan so do so. Millions of people could illegally vote and millions of legal voters can illegally vote twice with just a little sneakiness. It only takes a few thousand votes, or even a few hundred votes to swing an election.
But I think the point is made: The media is dishonest and biased, and in stead of reporting the news, they manipulate public opinion. Are we going to allow ourselves to be dictated to by the biased, dishonest and liberal media, or will we think independently from the media, and make up our own mind?
To the dishonest media and reporters, I would plainly submit a dire warning from a prophet of old. He said, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20, KJV).
The Evil of both Illegal and Some Legal Immigration
I am an immigrant to the United States. I have an interesting story about this, but now is not the time to tell it. Suffice it to say for now that I love and miss my family and People in South Africa, but that I have also come to love the United States and her precious people, most of all my biological American family and multitudes of American friends and fellow citizens. I would also say that I came here legally. I stood in the line, and did so with integrity and honor.
But in this portion I will discuss the issues of (1) Illegal immigration, and (2) Some Evil but Legal Immigration.
(1) Illegal Immigration
The issue of illegal immigration has become a hot topic. Even Christians have been divided on the issue. But I am going to try to make it simple here:
Imagine our country the same as your house. You own the house legally, and you would not stand uninvited entry into your house. This would be invasion, period. Imagine someone coming into your house, using the back door or one of the windows, and do so uninvited. Not only did they enter into your house uninvited, but they also eat your food and you must also add them to your health insurance policy. You must also pay for their children’s schooling. And if their children are born in your house, you must also add their name to the title.
Well, this is what illegal entry and stay in the United States amounts to. Instead of invading your house, they enter the country. They come into the country uninvited. They receive benefits in the form of food stamps and health care. Of course not all get into the system, but untold numbers do. Illegal immigration has drained billions upon billions of dollars (an estimated $125 BILLION according to one source). Illegal immigration floods our schools. And the children of illegal immigrants are under current law automatically citizens of the United States – something that I think must be looked into.
Our Christian compassion is often manipulated. It is hard to say no sometimes. We don’t want to be seen as the bad guys who don’t want to give everybody else a chance. And of course we are compassionate, and of course we want the best for everybody. But is it sustainable to flood our country with millions and millions of illegal immigrants? Just like you cannot sustain several more persons in your own home, so too you cannot sustain it on a greater scale. Yes, America is better off economically than most of the world, but why change that? Americans already pour billions and billions of dollars into other countries and their people. We feed them. We clothe them. We build orphanages. America is a good country. But we do it from compassion and by choice. We are not forced to do so. But illegal immigration is a different story.
(b) Evil Legal Immigration
Now for what I call Evil Legal Immigration. I am not talking about the laws in place that admits this many and that many immigrants from this country and that country into the United States. Such immigration is healthy for the country, but even that can be tweaked.
But what I am discussing here is the efforts to increase the American population with millions and millions of Muslim immigrants. Again, this is done under the guise of America’s “compassion” and our “goodness”. Oh, we love to be called compassionate and good, but we do not realize what we are doing to our country and to future generations.
680,000 legal immigrants have entered the United States from Muslim-majority countries from 2009 – 2013. And that’s before the tens of thousands entered the United States from 2013-2016. Friends, we are setting ourselves up for big problems in the future. Yes, it would be great to see these Muslims turn to Christ, and wow, that would be awesome, because God can do anything. But let us not use such thinking as a cop-out, and let’s not deceive ourselves: Unless God supernaturally brings these Muslims to Christ, we are filling our country with hundreds of thousands of Muslims, who historically have more children than non-Muslims, which will result in an increase in the Muslim population – not only by immigration, but by birth. Muammar Gadhafi said, "We have 50 million Muslims in Europe. There are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory in Europe—without swords, without guns, without conquest—will turn it into a Muslim continent within a few decades." He also said, “Europe is in a predicament, and so is America”
Not only are Muslims coming into the country by the hundreds of thousands, but they will have children and increase the Muslim populations dramatically this way – easily doubling and tripling it.
What about a third party or write-in candidate, or not voting at all?
There are some who say that they will vote for a third party presidential candidate. Well, on a local level I can see the place for a third party candidate running for district representative, school board, sheriff, and whatever. But to vote for a third party PRESIDENTIAL candidate is really futile. Common sense knows that he/she will not win. That’s bad enough. But what is worse, is that our vote for a third party candidate will be one less vote for the candidate of one of the two major parties – Republican and Democrat. The next president will definitely be either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. No write-in or third party candidate will get anywhere close.
The same is true if we do not vote at all. Each vote that is not cast will be one less vote for the person who is closest to what you and I stand for.
I conclude this discourse with you today by urging you. Go out and vote. Get all you know to go out and vote. This election is really about the Supreme Court. This election is not about the next four years. It’s about the next forty years. Let’s PRAY. Let’s VOTE. Let’s ENGAGE. Let’s EVANGELIZE. Thy Kingdom Come on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Thank you so much for hearing me out today. Please share this message and video with as many people as you can. Get it out on FaceBook, Twitter, YouTube, and all forms of social media. Make each other aware of the issues at stake with this election. We pray that this country will be saved.
“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14, KJV).
