What This Key Player Means By “Conservative” Should Really Concern You

| May 15, 2016

This election season seems to be more about keeping the wrong people out of the Oval Office than about putting the right person into the office. Certainly, for many Republicans, this seems to be the case, and they are voting more to keep Hillary out than to put Trump in.

Regardless of whether you are voting Republican because you like Trump or because you oppose Hillary, there seems no question that Trump is energizing a huge amount of the party base and many independents that were not previously committed Republicans. His controversial strategy is appearing to be hugely successful.

And, yet, you have the establishment within the party saying the Trump should be careful what he says, that he should not rock the boat, that he should just play nice. Or, in the case of RNC National Chairman Reince Priebus, that Trump should be more “conservative.”

While I like that idea, I’m not sure Priebus actually knows what conservative means. After all, this is a guy who helped to get Paul Ryan “into power on the state level,” and we know that hasn’t gone well (He’s been pretty anti-Tea Party as Speaker of the House, in case you weren’t sure what I meant). We should all be concerned by what he means by “conservative” because, supposedly, Mitt Romney and John McCain have been conservative, too. We know how “successful” that was, don’t we?

What do you think that Reince Priebus means by “conservative?” Tell us below.

      This BULLSHIT as you call it, is one day going to smack you right in the face. It amazes me that anyone can not see the writing on the wall and the direction this country is heading.

      • RobFromDallas

        Yes, that was my point! My question was this: I know conservatives TEND to support business in general, but what about this offshore outsourcing nonsense? The bean counters get bonuses for reducing “labor costs” and AMERICAN workers get the shaft. How does that help America?

        • The Redman

          white-folks R the 1’s doing it. but U won’t admit 2 it

          • RobFromDallas

            The Corporate Culture is doing it. I’ll bet Trump would have NO problem outsourcing YOUR job to India, as long as it makes money for him…

          • RobFromDallas

            For that matter, Hillary would do it too!

          • The Redman

            People R always saying what is happening in the world, but, never mention who is behind it. its white-folks-98%- who R demons in pink-skin.

          • The Redman

            Its Y I keep saying white-folks ruined america

          • If it were not for all folks there would not be an America.

          • The Redman

            Tell it like it tis. Al’s right hand man.

          • I always do. Just fact no brag.

        • Wanda

          DEMS have their hands in business every bit as much as REPS. The problem is BIG everything. Big government, big business, big banks, big unions. The average person is left on the short end of the stick in every area. The establishments in both parties are in control. I hate to say it but as a people we have already lost control of our country. We have allowed ourselves to be deceived for too long. The politicians play to various personal concerns and people vote for their own personal concern and interest. What has been forgotten are principles. The principles of limited government, values/morality… and the fact that God cannot be left out. Evil/immorality breeds immorality and destructive consequences. Good/morality breeds good and constructive/well being consequences… called common sense and wisdom. As a people, we will continue to make the same faulty choices that result in the same faulty consequences until we wake up and realize the part that we, ourselves have played in the process. The ruling elite believes that the masses are stupid… it is time we stopped proving it.

          • RobFromDallas

            I agree, although “limited government” is often used to reduce spending on social programs, including those for mental health, which is a HUGE issue. “God” is YOUR business, and NOT the government’s business. I don’t want to live in a theocracy, even if I am a Christian. Yes, the “ruling elite” has royally f–ed us to death.

          • Wanda

            We might disagree on social programs. There is a need for health care and mental health care. But I do not believe it is a government responsibility. Most of our colleges and universities were actually founded by churches… so were our social programs. Families used to care for their families. Hospitals… again these were founded by Christians. These were private institutions. The government has a tendency to muck things up with rules and regulations… sometimes even tying the hands of doctors to do what is truly needed. We are forced to pay through the nose in taxes while they tell us what we can and cannot have. When the government gets involved costs skyrocket. No, I do not think that the government is the best source of social programs. With government meddling in business… where are our jobs today? The government even tries to tell us what our morality can and cannot be… overrides our traditions. It forces immorality upon us. We will either have big government in all areas of our lives or we will choose to have a limited government in all areas. The Federal government is basically responsible to protecting our country and citizens from other countries … and protecting our borders… and protecting our soveriegnty. But it seems it wants to forsake those things for which it is truly responsible and meddle in foreign affairs all over the world and not provide the protection for us as a soveriegn country and and us as citizens. I have never been against immigration until now. I am now because I believe that the enemy is actually being invited in to vote against us. As citizens we are drowning. I honestly believe that there is an out and out plan to destroy this nation and every value and principle upon which it was founded.

          • RobFromDallas

            I don’t think you have experienced the dismal lack of mental illness programs for most folks. They can’t afford $200/hour psychiatrists and expensive medications that force them to choose between “meds” and food in the worst cases.

            Families and churches do help, but sometimes we need more than that, and well-conceived programs may do that. Reliance on “private” sources always appeals to conservatives but it sometimes insufficient.

          • Gnowark

            When the economy was better, charity was easier, now I can hardly afford internet, which has replaced TV as “the idiot’s box”

          • RobFromDallas

            I hear you!

          • Wanda

            You might be surprised what I have experienced. Just because something is called psychology or mental health.. does not mean that it is what it should really be. I have a BA and one of my minors is psychology. Plus, you do not know what I have struggled with in my own life. Just one little example: I subed for a girls group home so the group home parents could go out with their family and so they could have a vacation. Without going into details… the social worker who is supposedly trained in these things was not able to get this girl to return home with her counseling. But I was able to and it was not based on the psychology education that I had either. It was based upon common sense and what you expect to learn in church. Sorry… still disagree. God changes lives.

          • RobFromDallas

            Yes, God does change lives.

          • Wanda

            I want to share something else with you. I have seen sloppy, easy diagnosis made with meds given. The diagnosis wrong. The meds not only not helping but caused problems. The government being involved means only that money is being thrown at a social program… not that the program is a good one. It also means that the government forces government regulations and control upon that program. No, I do not support the involvement of government in social programs. I do not support the take over of health care by the government… mental health is a part of health care.

          • RobFromDallas

            Well, the “private sector” has not helped at all. Churches, families, friends, etc. CANNOT help a person who has fallen into a clinical depression or has OCD or PTSD. They need professional help and most cannot afford that. So tell me, what is the solution?

            Government regulations exists because private companies were killing people with horrible working conditions, low pay, no respect from “management” and no hope for advancement. My brother worked his butt off for an oil refinery for years only to get cancer from asbestos.

          • Wanda

            Your personal choice where your relationship with God is concerned is your personal choice. But remember this… this country was founded upon Christian principles and values. It is not a Theocrocy with a State Church like the Church of England and much of Europe with the Roman Catholic Church.

          • RobFromDallas
          • RobFromDallas

            I think they believed in “God”. Jesus is a different matter. Some were devout Christians, some were NOT. Remember, these people argued for months about the wording if the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence. Thomas Jefferson, the main writer of these documents, was NOT a “Christian” per se…

          • Wanda

            It is not just meds to calm people. Go into the mental hospitals or even the mental ward in the local hospital and see how drugged up people are. Do you really think that is the answer? People walking around like drugged up zombies. If so, you have a very different concept of good mental health than I do. It does not stop with the subject of mental health either. I guess you are not grasping the over reach into every area of our lives by the government… and the negative results in every area of our lives. Government is not the answer nor the solution. If you really believe in our Constitution then you know that our government is violating it. It is grabbing power and control by claiming responsibility that was not given to it by our Constitution… and in fact actually prohibited by our Constitution.

          • RobFromDallas

            I understand what you are saying about “big government”, but what about “big business?” Do you understand how Big Pharma and Big Agra have basically ruined our health? I have been in psych wards and I have seen the people you talked about, and I agree…they are like zombies. BUT, how is this government’s fault? Is government sedating people with untested medications? Is government creating zombies with massive doses of anti-depressant drugs? No, this is Big Business, and conservatives have a huge blind spot here. They hate Big Government but Big Business gets a pass. This is the heart of the basic disagreement between conservatives and liberals.

          • Wanda

            I do not give big business a pass… nor do I give big banks and big unions a pass. Big business, big unions hold hands with our Representatives for their own personal interest For Representatives it is their own personal careers and wealth. Plus they vote themselves benefits that are far greater than those they vote for us as citizens. You are only further making my point.

          • RobFromDallas

            I am pro-union. Without unions, people have no power in the workplace.

          • Wanda

            Is government innocent in what is going on?No… they get their palms greased by Big Pharma and Big Agra. Plus… regulations, regulations, regulations… and then there is the pass for those who grease their palms. It is an ongoing cycle and the ones that get hurt in the process is the average person who no longer has any say in our government. Even the voting process, the candidates, etc. is controlled by the political establishment (which is what the protest this election is about). It well may be a misplaced protest but that is still the reason why. Warnings have been shouted from the rooftops for years and years… and unheeded while there was still time. President Ronald Reagan was the last good/great President. George HW Bush, Bill Clinton, George W Bush helped to bring us to the final push over the cliff. Obama put the nails in the coffin. God’s Word says that man left to himself will destroy himself but God also promised that He would intervene. Jesus is coming soon.

          • RobFromDallas

            Oh, OK. You are an “end-times” Christian.

          • Wanda

            You are assuming that the meds are untested. I am telling you that tested meds get a pass… Big Pharma and greased palms. Then there is the experimentation with drugs upon people… government has its hands in that as well. We are harvesting our own young through abortion… Planned Parenthood is really key in this. A nurse said that “We do not refer to abortion anymore. It a need…” for what? For transplants, etc. Organs, tissue, stem cells, experimentation… shall I go on. No, government is not innocent in these things. Read the med labels! Side effects include the very things you are taking the meds to address.

          • RobFromDallas

            No, most meds have “clinical trials” and are approved. Planned Parenthood spends less than 4% of it’s efforts on abortions. I don’t know if they sell body parts or not, but some important medical research on cancer is facilitated with stem cells. Do you want to shut that down?

          • Wanda

            Planned Parenthood is the biggest supporter of abortion… the fair haired child of politically correct libs. Yes, I am for shutting down abortions. Stem cells can come other human sources without killing the person. Yes, there are “clinical trials” but there is a lot of experimentation too. And those meds are approved in spite of all the dangerous side effects that are affecting the health of people a whole lot more than is being acknowledged. Planned Parenthood is not exactly known for telling the truth. Do I want to harvest our own young? Do you seriously believe that would be pleasing to God? Such immorality always carries with it destructive and dangerous consequences. Morality does matter. Making those kinds of things seem like they are needed is just plain deception. We would not be worse off and maybe even better off if we shut down a whole lot of things. See… you have fallen for the sympathy ploy. That is not the same thing as the truth. What you say sounds like you are a sympathetic person, a caring person. Let me give you another interpretation to the view you are buying into… wanting the government to make others do things or not do things. At the same time, bottom line, not wanting those things to apply to themselves. The problem with that is that if the government is a big unlimited government with the power and control to make others do or not do things then the government has the power and control to make you do things or not do things. Absolute power corrupts. It really does not have to be absolute power to mightily affect every area of our lives… that is big government. You do not sound like you have considered the NATURAL view of life… food, health care (meds). You seem to trust the government too much… man too much. The dangers of the meddling in our food supplies, meds, health care. The dangers of something is spouted and some other so called safer product is pushed… only a little later that the so called safer product is worse than the one that was being accused of being dangerous. Big government, big business, big unions, big banks, big teachers’ union… big, big, big equals power and control. This is not our friend nor is it in our best interest. In my opinion you are not a conservative, you do not truly embrace our Constitution or our foundations, our culture, our values, You really sound like you are embracing the politically correct agenda and view.

          • RobFromDallas

            What is this hatred about “politically correct?” Isn’t it just a nicer way of talking about people? We used to call them queers and niggers and retards and gimps and spics and dykes and greasers. People were very offended by that and we found other, more “PC” names for people. What’s wrong with that?

          • Wanda

            No, it is not. In the first place, I do not call people names like that. When I refer to politically correct. I am talking about values. Politically correct values are immoral but are politically pushing them on our culture and other people… demanding that the immoral values and destructive agendas be accepted as an acceptable standard… and pushing good moral values as being wrong. At the same time, pretending to be caring while pushing destructive values and agendas. Politically correct tries to change our traditions, foundations, values through political means. They are the ones who have been trying to change things and turn our country on it head upside down over the years… but those who try to stand against are being said to be the ones who are trying to change things and force things on other people, called haters. The politically correct have pushed their agendas politically through the courts… hand picked by the way…. when they were not able to get it through legislation… where laws are suppose to be made… against the will of the people. Mostly, PC has found a home in the Dem Party among Liberals. There has been some inroads made into the REP Party… liberal Reps. PC holds hands with BIG GOVERNMENT not LIMITED GOVERNMENT. They are part of the Progressive Movement and Progressive views not the views of our Founding Fathers and the foundations of this country. Women’s LIB is a part of it. As a woman, I oppose that because they are anti-family values. They are not about the best interest of women like they claim at all. Then there is Margaret Sanger who was a racist and promoted population control… founder of Planned Parenthood and promoter of abortion. She claimed to be so caring about the needs of poor black women… but her agenda was black baby population control… that was the beginning. As you know, abortion has become about all babies… black, yellow, brown, red, white… the real agenda is population control and killing babies to do it. And it is involved in harvesting our own young. It is called deception, lies… pretending caring and something as being good… all the while the real purpose and agenda is evil and destructive. PC is and has been trying to destroy the morality of this country and family values… the very foundations of this country. The Progressive movement historically goes back many years… basically it was about a stronger, more powerful, more controlling government. That is not the foundations of this country. President Teddy Roosevelt was one of the first to be a big supporter of the Progressive political view… he was not supporting nearly as much as we see in our country today… but he was very much a part of the Progressive Movement getting a foothold into our country. Other Presidents include Woodrow Wilson and Franklin D. Roosevelt. Remember power and control begins with the government claim of helping people… it is deceptive. Over our country’s history… the Politically Correct Movement and agenda joined the Progressive Movement. PC uses government for its purposes. PC began with the liberal Women’s Movement. I do not know how old you are or what altered history you may have learned in school. But I have been around for a long time… long enough to see a lot of the progression that has taken place.

          • RobFromDallas

            “Politically correct values are immoral” What does this mean? What values are we talking about?

          • Wanda

            If you have to ask that question then you do not know what morality it nor do you understand the difference between constructive and destructive consequences… nor do you understand what truly caring about other people. The things in my posts spoke to those very things. Bottom line… you believe what you want to and support what you want to… man is your authority not God.

          • Wanda

            I am not answering anymore of your comments. There is none so deaf as those who will not hear. Further attempts to explain, answer question is just plain futile. If you want to play third degree police, you will have to fine another victim.

          • Wanda

            When government gets involved costs skyrocket. And by the way… I am no stranger to depression. What healing I have experienced came from my relationship with God. In the end, that is the true answer. Often times the side effects of med including those given for depression is depression. Ironic, isn’t it.

          • RobFromDallas

            Well, I’m glad you were helped by that. Other people are not helped by that. Yes, Big Pharma is always cranking out drugs to sedate and “calm” us down. Government programs have helped some people too, so there is no “one solution” to this problem.

  • Donnie Buchanan

    To Priebus, IMHO, conservative means go along with whatever comes up or you’ll be branded as ignorant.

    • Wanda

      Right on! We are being forced into going along with the controlling establishments. Christians are number one on their persecution list… oh, it may be soft persecution for now.

      Totally Agree!!!

  • A natural born American

    At this point in American history it seems as though Trump IS the most qualified simply because he has the least amount of political experience while having the greatest success at turning mediocre into outstanding. When he wins in November the icing on the cake will be that hillary didn’t.

    • cristoiglesia

      Whether it is Trump or Hillary they both share the same leftist liberal ideology. As for how they will perform as the POTUS I do not think there would be much difference as their ideology is the same.

      • Wanda

        Not so sure Trump is all that leftist liberal. He may have bought into some of it as many have over the years. But things may be getting to his limits. There is a pendulum that happens in the affairs of men. After the Roaring 20’s there was a Revival, a returning to God. The present affairs of men has gotten immoral to the extreme. One of two things is going to happen… a Revival, a returning to God… or Jesus is on His way. God said that man left to himself would destroy himself… He also promised to intervene. One of the things that causes me to believe that we are very near the coming of the Lord is the global nature of the affairs of men.

        • Pamela Sellarole

          I’d like to believe that one more revival is coming–one last chance for America to be what she was created to be, and that’s how I’m praying about it. But you may be right. It may be that the Rapture of the Church is just around the corner. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

        • cristoiglesia

          Trump has a history of always being a far left liberal Democrat insider and king maker for the Democrat party. He was instrumental in getting Obama elected and then he called him a “great President”, That statement alone suggest that to be a great president that he will model his Presidency after Obama’s. He is running against his best friends wife Hillary so that he could split the vote and make it certain that a far left Democrat, either he or Hillary would be POTUS. All this was done to help the Democrat party which was very vulnerable to losing the Executive office. Had it not been for Trump entering the race the Democrats would have no chance of prevailing with their leftist ideology but with Trump it is a certainty.

      • Cristina Shoman

        You wouldn’t say that if you would’ve read their platform….so much not alike (2nd Amendment, Economy/Trade, immigration, army & police, energy, work forces & jobs, and so on)…investigate more before you make a fool of yourself!!👎🏻

      • Gnowark

        cristoiglesia: Then can Trump count upon your vote, instead of hillary, or were you wrong about not much difference?

        • cristoiglesia

          Let me make this clear….I have never voted for a leftist liberal in my entire life and I will not start at my now advanced age. I am a true conservative who will never vote for a leftist even if they claim to be Republican like Trump.

          • Would you consider Barry Goldwater a 2016 or a 1964 conservative and what is the difference?
            Trump is closer to or same as a 1964 Goldwater conservative and certainly not a Paul Ryan conservative
            and Ryan is closer to a Hillary liberal.
            Is a conservative one that would:
            1. Close the borders and follow the constitution and federal law.
            2. Deport aliens if they don’t apply for citizenship and become citizens within one year.
            3. Deport aliens whose visas have expired.
            4. Place a tariff on foreign imports.
            5. Place a tariff on American corporations that import products manufactured in foreign countries.
            6. Require those on welfare that are physically able to work to complete community service at state and federal levels.
            7. Place a temporary moratorium on middle eastern aliens until their backgrounds have been thoroughly checked. Then processed as applicants on probation awaiting temporary citizenship application.
            8. No welfare, assistance for non citizens.
            9. No voting until they become citizens.

          • cristoiglesia

            It would be a much more accurate comparison to compare Trump to other liberals like Hillary, Obama and Sanders. Trump has very few similarities to conservative Republicans since he has never been one and has only been a Republican long enough to run for POTUS,

          • You did not answer my original question, just danced around it like Bill or Hillary would do so it seems you are a liberal.

          • cristoiglesia

            Well, I read what I wrote again and found that I answered your question very succinctly. To me leftists like Trump are the polar opposite of conservatives to the right. Trump is not at all comparable to Republicans liberal or conservative. Conservatives have different values and goals from liberals like Trump. I assume you are disappointed because I did not answer you point by point.
            It is impossible to compare Trump to any conservative and he is far to the left of any Republican I can recall who has run for POTUS. Certainly he is not comparable to Goldwater. Comparing Ryan to Hillary is ridiculous and would be laughable except I do believe you are serious and that is a shame that you are so twisted in logic. I will take each of your points in order:
            1. Every conservative Republican I know is for immigration reform and securing the borders.
            2. There is no process now where aliens can become a citizen within a year. Becoming a citizen can take many years and a lot of effort. Are you suggesting tht this should be streamlined and that they not be properly vetted? I do not agree. It took my wife more than eight years to become a citizen and the cost was quite high. We are still working to get our son into the US. I believe the process is too long now and too expensive and should be reformed.
            3. Resident aliens should keep their papers in order and should be penalized if they do not.
            4. I do not have an opinion on foreign imports. I think that Americans should be able to buy foreign goods at a reasonable price. I would focus more on American industries getting more productive and competitive.
            5. Again we must be very careful of raising the cost of imports with taxes and put efforts towards american companies being more productive and competitive in the world market. Perhaps tax incentives for manufacturing more efficiently.
            6. I think it would be much smarter and more rewarding to the people in this situation to be able to transition to a real job and not be slaves to a system like you suggest.
            7. I agree that they should not be on a fast track to immigration like they are now. The Democrats represented by the liberals like Trump see these immigrants as beholden to those who created their special immigration status and are creating voters to perpetuate their ideology.
            8. OK, but what happens to those who by no fault of their own find themselves destitute and in need of assistance?
            9. Absolutely, however it is the leftist liberals like Trump who want everyone regardless of citizenship to vote if they are residents.

          • Wanda

            The problem is that what is left is the the Dem leftist liberals. If I am at the point where I cannot vote for Trump. I will vote but I will write in Ron Paul.

Chasing the good humor ice cream truck with food stamps at 1pm is not what most would call an occupation. I have got to give him my opinion. I havent doubled down on him which I am capable of. Hes been kicked off a few sites for voicing his perverted hatered for whitie. Thanks for the heads up. He will leave me alone for a few days after hes been mentally blown apart. Like the plague its always out there you never know when it will return.

            So you are a racist. It is not the color of skin that matters. It is character. Blacks can be just as racist as a White. We were all created by God.

          • Wanda

            God created the Archangel Lucifer as the most beautiful angel but angels had a choice just as man was given a choice to accept or reject God and His ways. The Archangel Lucifer was impressed with his own beauty and he wanted to be like God… to be King so to speak. God gave man dominion over the earth. Lucifer wanted dominion over man and over the earth. He deceived Adam and Eve to get it. The Archangel Lucifer became the fallen angel by his own choice. God only created Lucifer as good. So do not blame God for the evil and sins of Satan. He chose that for himself. And all the angels that followed him have become fallen angels. Man and the earth became fallen man and fallen earth. God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten son (Jesus, the Word in the flesh) that whosoever should believe in Him should not parish but have everlasting life. Jesus delivers us from the dominion of Satan. The choice is chosen by each individual person. You called yourself Redman so I am going to guess that you are an Indian in some way… but that is only the pigment of the color of skin. What matters is who your heart belongs to… the fallen angel Lucifer or to God’s own begotten Son, Jesus. Jesus… who loved you so much that He was willing to face the suffering of the cross of Calvary to offer a restored love relationship with God.

    • Wanda

      I am confused concerning where Trump stands. He might not fit any particular labeling and come from various positions depending upon the issue. I do however believe that Trump truly loves America and is loyal to it. I think he identifies more with the people than the ruling elite. I might be wrong. I know who Hillary is! Caring about people is only manipulting campaigning to get votes. Hillary is the ruling elite just as Obama is.

      • A_patriot

        I believe that many of us are a mixture of political/ideological beliefs. No one is EVER fully anything, in that regard. So for people to suggest Trump isn’t Conservative is not correct. I consider myself Conservative in most areas, but in one or two most would probably suggest I’m a tad more liberal. I do agree we should keep the Constitution, as written. That it’s the Law of the Land, and not a ‘living’ document open to progressive interpretations, to be massaged and blithely added to without due process. I do believe that our Country was founded on Judeo-Christian values and I believe firmly in our Religious Freedom and the Right to Bear Arms.

        I believe the president has to be a natural born citizen, meaning both parents are American Citizens at the time of their child’s birth, which bestows this label to said child. Not merely being born in this country. There is a difference.

        I am not against immigration, since that’s how most of our nations’ families got here to begin with. I just firmly believe that when people come here to stay, they should ‘sign in’ at the front desk, so to speak.

        I am staunchly Pro-Life, but for a time fell into the hypnosis that if a pregnancy is ill-timed or a burden to the parents. Happily, my spouse with well-spoken words snapped me out of that mentality.

        I do believe we are to be caretakers of this planet we call Home. However, not to the extent that the far left radicals would take us. Don’t dump your trash on the ground, or your old oil from your car into the gutters, etc.

        Can people change over time. If you don’t, you’re basically dead. We should ALL be growing. Whatever Trump believed in in the past, is just that. The Past. I think he’ll make a great president, and the rest of us will be able to walk around with our heads held high, instead of in a cringing posture over what the current Potus has said or done.

        • Wanda

          I have no problem with what you said. I could have written it myself.

        • used_to_be_a_liberal

          well said

        • Totally agree.

  • Joanne

    Conservative is approving of the 2nd Amendment to protect themselves, pro-life, capitalism to promote success, defeat enemies to deal with terrorists, small government, patriotic and belief in God. We don’t have a conservative in the three candidates, one is a socialist, one should not be running for President with her record, the other is a narcissist!

    • Wanda

      The candidates that I have supported in recent years are Ron and Rand Paul. But they do not belong to the controlling establishments of the DEMS and the REPS.

  • Poodleguy

    To me, a conservative is one who upholds the Constitution with fierce uncompromising loyalty & is faithful in recognizing that there is a God & lives that life to the best of their ability. I believe that the Bible & the Constitution were both inspired by The Lord God & that America was made available by Him & we have defiled it, beginning with slavery. That is how I see it….

    • mamacancook

      Well said! Most would heartily agree with you!

      • Bull shit:

        Slavery was brought to America by slave traders the Dutch to supply field labor and they were treated well as they were needed to field the crops.

        Blacks or African Americans should realize Waring tribes sold the looser to the Dutch so Africans sold their on people, so don’t blame the colonists as they needed workers.

        Holy shit that was 500 years ago and we are still going there?

        Your black brothers sold your forefathers into slavery for profit so give your relatives

        • mamacancook

          You make very foolish assumptions. I have no “black brothers”…only Western European ones.

        • Wanda

          You are right. Black tribes sold other black tribes to slave traders. Some blacks were slave traders as well. There were free blacks that owned slaves. Some slaves were treated well but not all were… let us be honest about that. Even so… slavery is slavery. God did not create man to be owned by man. Serfs are nothing more than another form of slavery. Not all slaves down through history have been black. Indians made slaves of members of other tribes. Jews were slaves. The serfdom of Europe was nothing more than slavery. It grieves the heart for man to be in slavery.

          • We are slaves to the IRS that can seize our bank accounts, impound cars, houses etc. without a court order.
            Slaves on rich plantations had good living quarters were treated well.

    • Wanda

      I wholeheartedly agree with you. The Founding Fathers knew that the 13 colonies would never unite if the slavery issue was considered at that time. So they opted to create this new nation first knowing that the issue of slavery would need to be addressed at a later time. It has never ceased to be a troubling issue. The enemy has also found a way to be a part of that with their influence… which only further divides our country. None the less, a true conservative is what you described and that is what has been the strength of this country.

    • Slavery was brought to America by slave traders the Dutch to supply field labor and they were treated well as they were needed to field the crops.

        I not only was, I still am & will continue to be until the nominee is decided upon @ the convention. If you can find & research Rule 33, you will discover why I have this position. Ted Cruz has the potential to be a greater POTUS than Ronald Wilson Reagan, the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln……It ain’t over until it’s over & the fat lady sings!!!

        • ADRoberts

          I certainly hope so. But Cruz has too much against him.
          All the lies.
          Media misinformation and hatred.
          Trump despises him because Trump knows Cruz is smarter that he is.
          Establishment only hate Trump more that they hate Cruz.

          I have given it over to God. II Chronicles 7:14. And there is almost NO hope that our nation will leave its iniquity as shown by their embracing Clinton and Trump. Both ARE wicked.

            Yes, AD Roberts. Our hope is not in man but in God. It is God that heals, provides… and gives peace in the time of trouble.

      • Poodleguy

        I was & I still am!! So, today it was announced that Trump has 1238 delegates & is assured of the nomination, but he may be in for a rude awakening when the convention comes to order. Rule 33 can upset his applecart because of Trump’s departure from the Party platform in several instances. It could end up being a wild event!!

        • ADRoberts

          I would like to see him removed. But I am now to the point that my curiousity about Rule 33 is not enough to actually check it out.
          I am now on one thing. II Chronicles 7:14.
          And since we are in the age of Laodicea, iot is unlikely that “those called by His Name” will repent.

  • cristoiglesia

    He is probably speaking about someone who is not a lifelong Democrat insider and kingmaker like Trump that has only been a Republican long enough to register as a candidate for POTUS. It might also be nice if that person was not the best friend of one of the other candidates husband like Bill Clinton who plays golf regularly with Bill and their friendship goes back decades when they used to fly together to Jeffrey Epstein’s island to be with young underage girls.It might also be more palatable if he held some of the traditional Republican values like being anti-abortion or against planned parenthood. Instead he wants to make both of these issues a part of the Republican platform in endorsement of them. I would be more comfortable with him if he respected other Republicans and especially was at least tolerating conservatives and our ideology without making fun of us and denigrating us at every opportunity. It might help if he was somehow presidential in his demeanor and someone tht would instill pride in our countries leadership. It would also be more comforting if he showed some indication that he would not nominate SCOTUS candidates based on his own leftist liberal foundation but conservatives from the right instead. In other words he would have to be a completly different person. But, of course, he continues to try to deceve us into thinking that he has had an epiphany and is no longer that far left wing radical deal maker that called Obama a “great President” after funding his campaign. I would be more comfortable if he suggested his presidency would be more modeled after Ronald Reagan instead.

    • Wanda

      I understand what you are saying. It is very much a legitimate questioning. Close friends of Bill Clinton include George HW Bush and George W Bush. It becomes difficult to tell the watchdog hound from the fox in the hen house. In my view, Ronald Reagan was our last great President. The rest have been members of the Titanic.

      I think the founders never expected voters to NOT impose term limits. The concept of “career politician” was probably as foreign to them as alcohol prohibition, or Senators elected by popular vote instead of by the state to be represented. I would agree, but like an Article V convention: making another law (to say DC has to follow the old law) is insanity until the careers are gone, and WE HAVE TO DO IT!

    He needs money for infrastructure because that money that was alloted for this has been spent on illegals storming our borders. Right now Obama is giving them 3 years to suck out state housing vouchers & the food stamp programs. Wow thats Cinco de Mayo on steroids. How about no one pay their taxes till this is put in writing illegals are being sent to the borders. If youre not here legally get the hell out. Were broke and Obama is giving us away right before your eyes. This is a concervative someone who recognizes this

  • Original Anna

    Amazing, establishment republicans who vote democratic still don’t get it. Why do they think Trump is attracting republicans back who apparently the party hasn’t noticed left the republican party. If Trump becomes more conservative according to the party’s definition than he would be nothing but a rino and, gee, we have had enough of them. We want the Old Republican party who had the guts and the knowledge of the difference between the two parties to vote no or say NO to the democrats. What the heck, the republicans have control of the house and the senate and they are voting every democratic thing through and refusing to even bring up republican and conservative things up for a vote. And Priebus thinks Trump should be like the rinos we have now. He wants to lose another election doesn’t he or he hasn’t made yet all the crooked money he wants.

  • What is a Conservative? 10 to 1.

    10) Conservatives believe that individual Americans have a right to defend themselves and their families with guns and that right cannot be taken away by any method short of a Constitutional Amendment, which conservatives would oppose. Liberals believe by taking arms away from law abiding citizens, they can prevent criminals, who aren’t going to abide by gun control laws, from using guns in the commission of crimes.

    9) Conservatives believe that we should live in a color blind society where every individual is judged on the content of his character and the merits of his actions. On the other hand, liberals believe that it’s OK to discriminate based on race as long as it primarily benefits minority groups.

    8) Conservatives are capitalists and believe that entrepreneurs who amass great wealth through their own efforts are good for the country and shouldn’t be punished for being successful. Liberals are socialists who view successful business owners as people who cheated the system somehow or got lucky. That’s why they don’t respect high achievers and see them as little more than piggy banks for their programs.

    7) Conservatives believe that abortion ends the life of an innocent child and since we believe that infanticide is wrong, we oppose abortion. Most liberals, despite what they’ll tell you, believe that abortion ends the life of an innocent child, but they prefer killing the baby to inconveniencing the mother.

    6) Conservatives believe in confronting and defeating enemies of the United States before they can harm American citizens. Liberals believe in using law enforcement measures to deal with terrorism, which means that they feel we should allow terrorists to train, plan, and actually attempt to kill Americans before we try to arrest them — as if you can just send the police around to pick up a terrorist mastermind hiding in Iran or the wilds of Pakistan.

    5) Conservatives, but not necessarily Republicans (which is unfortunate), believe it’s vitally important to the future of the country to reduce the size of government, keep taxes low, balance the budget, and get this country out of debt. Liberals, and Democrats for that matter, believe in big government, high taxes, and they have never met a new spending program they didn’t like, whether we will have to go into debt to pay for it or not.

    4) Conservatives believe that government, by its very nature, tends to be inefficient, incompetent, wasteful, and power hungry. That’s why we believe that the government that governs least, governs best. Liberals think that the solution to every problem is another government program. Even when those new programs create new problems, often worse than the ones that were being fixed in the first place, the solution is always….you guessed it, another government program.

    3) Conservatives are patriotic, believe that America is a great nation, and are primarily interested in looking out for the good of the country. That’s why we believe in “American exceptionalism” and “America first.” Liberals are internationalists who are more concerned about what Europeans think of us and staying in the good graces of the corrupt bureaucrats who control the UN than looking out for the best interests of this nation.

    2) Conservatives, most of them anyway, believe in God and think that the Constitution has been twisted by liberal judges to illegitimately try to purge Christianity from the public square. We also believe, most of us anyway, that this country has been successful in large part because it is a good, Christian nation and if our country ever turns away from the Lord, it will cease to prosper. Liberals, most of them anyway, are hostile to Christianity. That’s why, whether you’re talking about a school play at Christmas time, a judge putting the Ten Commandments on the wall of his court, or a store employee saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays,” liberals are dedicated to driving reminders of Christianity from polite society.

    1) Conservatives believe in pursuing policies because they’re pragmatic and because they work. Liberals believe in pursuing policies because they’re “nice” and make them feel good. Whether the policies they’re advocating actually work or not is of secondary importance to them.

      If you truly believe what you have wrote then why are you a Trump supporter? As a far left Northeastern liberal he is the polar opposite of a conservative. Why did you support the only far left liberal running for POTUS on the Republican ticket when all the rest of the potential candidates were conservative? There is a great disconnect between what you write and what you practice by supporting a far left ideologue like Trump. True conservatives like myself have no dog in this fight and are not willing to support in any way a leftist regardless of party affiliation. Yet you are, please explain this dichotomy between what you claim and practice.

          6) Conservatives believe in confronting and defeating enemies of the United States before they can harm American citizens. Liberals believe in using law enforcement measures to deal with terrorism, which means that they feel we should allow terrorists to train, plan, and actually attempt to kill Americans before we try to arrest them — as if you can just send the police around to pick up a terrorist mastermind hiding in Iran or the wilds of Pakistan.

          5) Conservatives, but not necessarily Republicans (which is unfortunate), believe it’s vitally important to the future of the country to reduce the size of government, keep taxes low, balance the budget, and get this country out of debt. Liberals, and Democrats for that matter, believe in big government, high taxes, and they have never met a new spending program they didn’t like, whether we will have to go into debt to pay for it or not.

          4) Conservatives believe that government, by its very nature, tends to be inefficient, incompetent, wasteful, and power hungry. That’s why we believe that the government that governs least, governs best. Liberals think that the solution to every problem is another government program. Even when those new programs create new problems, often worse than the ones that were being fixed in the first place, the solution is always….you guessed it, another government program.

          3) Conservatives are patriotic, believe that America is a great nation, and are primarily interested in looking out for the good of the country. That’s why we believe in “American exceptionalism” and “America first.” Liberals are internationalists who are more concerned about what Europeans think of us and staying in the good graces of the corrupt bureaucrats who control the UN than looking out for the best interests of this nation.

          2) Conservatives, most of them anyway, believe in God and think that the Constitution has been twisted by liberal judges to illegitimately try to purge Christianity from the public square. We also believe, most of us anyway, that this country has been successful in large part because it is a good, Christian nation and if our country ever turns away from the Lord, it will cease to prosper. Liberals, most of them anyway, are hostile to Christianity. That’s why, whether you’re talking about a school play at Christmas time, a judge putting the Ten Commandments on the wall of his court, or a store employee saying “Merry Christmas” instead of “Happy Holidays,” liberals are dedicated to driving reminders of Christianity from polite society.

          1) Conservatives believe in pursuing policies because they’re pragmatic and because they work. Liberals believe in pursuing policies because they’re “nice” and make them feel good. Whether the policies they’re advocating actually work or not is of secondary importance to them.

        • I turned 21 4/1964 and voted for Barry Goldwater in the California primary and general election 11/64 and was one of the leaders in the Conservative Young Republicans and a member of the John Birch Society in Orange County Calif. so don’t tell me I do not know what a conservative is.
          Obviously you are an ignorant Jackass or you would not speak to something you are ignorant of.

  • ADRoberts

    So many ways to deceive. Like calling Chris Christie a conservative. Or Murkowski.
    Or Donald Trump;.
    What we need is a report card with all items conservative listed and a NUMBER SHOWING just how conservative a man really is. Oh, we have that already for Congressmen.

    • Who really gives a shit as until they have been in office it’s hard to tell.
      You or I say we are Indy drivers but who knows until we race and hit a wall or win.
      I really don’t care if Trump is Conservative, Democrat,Liberal or a Blue Haired Baboon whose dick and balls drag on the ground.
      I do know Hillary leaves snail tracks when she walks and I will vote for Trump before I vote for that thing.
      I know what I get when I vote for Hillary the Cuntry Girl and not a chance in hell.
      Trump is the only one that can beat Hillary and he will and he will be a better president than Clinton the Bushes and Obama, perhaps not as good as Reagan but those are big shoes to fill.

      Have any of you conservatives that blow smoke up each others asses ever been to the Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif?
      My family and I have been April 23, 2008.
      If you have been there then you can call yourself a Conservative and if not then you are just an ignorant closet conservatives along with Ryan and the rest.

      • ADRoberts

        Wow. You have been to the Reagan Library!!!!! And that is all it takes to be made into a conservative. LOL. I am not that easy to fool. I also am not fooled by Trump.
        So you are firmly entrenched in the idea of letting him have a turn and show us what he has. How did that work out for you in 08 and 12? LOL
        And then your efforts to be forceful by using nasty disgusting word pictures is just an indication that you truly believe you are incapable of arguing your case as a civilized, respectful person.
        “….You conservatives” Would indicate that you DON’T believe yourself to be a real conservative. LOL Gotcha again.

        Now some news for you. At no time until the last few days was Trump indicated by “polls” to being able to beat Clinton. Cruz most of the time WAS.
        As to what is reality. at this time 47% of Americans would still consider a third party candidate. Do you get that? Probably not. That is a WINNING percentage just because so many see Clinton and Trump as the SAME THING.
        The Bible says, “Do not be deceived……….” And even taken out of context, it is true. You HAVE been deceived.

        • I’ll just ignore your nasty statements as I did not consider the Reagan Library a joke and that statement was out of line and shows your arrogant ignorant thinking.

          • ADRoberts

            So explain yourself. How does just going to a library, suddenly make such a big difference. It is almost as if you were worshipping him.
            There is nothing arrogant or ignorant about ridiculing your “worship” at the Reagan library.

          • You need to go fuck your self as you are a nut case.

          • ADRoberts

            Just a I said, You are not only irrational, you can’t even pretend to defend what you say.
            But you did prove a saying from far in my past. “Profanity is the effort of a feeble mind to express itself forcefully.”
            Now I give you one more chance. Prove that I am a nut case.
            Name calling is easy. Winning a discussion means you have something besides NAMES to call. LOL

    • Politicians don’t lie. Bill Clinton “I did not have sexual relations with that woman”
      Hillary Clinton “It’s OK Bill as it was just a “Spem of the Moment” thing”

      • ADRoberts

        I wonder how many people believe that will work on God at the Judgement Bar.

        • The same ones that vote for Hillary, 50% of the voters?

          • ADRoberts

            I don’t know. Self deception is getting to be very common. But in their heart of hearts, they still know. “Do not be deceived. God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
            Where most “Christians” will fail is from the Lord’s Prayer. “….and forgive us our debts, AS we forgive our debtors. …..”

          • Mr. Roberts I liken you to an English Bulldog that has the tenacity to not give up. Your statements and assumptions are ill based.
            You don’t know my religious background so if you are such an Evangelical profit of Ted Cruz

          • ADRoberts

            Profit is what business make when they succeed. Prophet is a person from God who tells you what God is going to do to you.
            I can assume from that that you have NO religious background.
            I bet you don’t even know what an Evangelical is. LOL
            Now, show how that is ill based. You lack basic knowledge of religion.

          • I have been a Roman Catholic since birth so that is my background and that is my preference.

          • ADRoberts

            In my 67 years, I have crossed paths with Catholics and a few who were ex-Catholics.
            Never have I found a Catholic who could explain or justify the blatant breaking of the instructions of the Bible, like praying to saints and Mary. Or claiming pergatory.
            Most Catholics are only NOMINAL Catholics and certainly do not live in John 14:12, Acts 1:8 or even the part of the Lord’s Prayer, where it says, “…and forgive us our debts AS we forgive our debtors.”
            Explain why, when God specifically removed the priests from being between God and man, by tearing the veil of the Temple in TWO, yet Catholics believe in going to the priest for “confessionals.”.
            BLATANT VIOLATION of God instructions. But it does do ONE thing that most if not all popes have wanted to do. Be between God and man. where God had demanded that NO ONE is between Him and us.

          • Well to confuse things a bit, first I have a couple of years on you and am 73 but that does mean I am 6 years smarter or you are 6 years dummer?
            I was raised in the Anglican Church (Episcopal) and attended the Church of the Messiah in Santa Ana, Calif. at the time referred to as the Catholic Church.
            Father Havermale was the priest who wrote “Praise God and pass the ammunition”
            I was an alter boy, crucifer, sang in the choir and was active in the church.
            My wife and I were married in the Episcopal Church and our daughter now 22 years old was baptized in the Episcopal church.
            We decided the Episcopal church and our beliefs on a couple of issues did not jibe so we went through RCIA in the Roman Catholic Church.
            I am aware of the few differences between the Episcopal Catholic Church and the Roman Catholic Church both proceeded the current protestant church.
            You obviously are an Evangelical Christian and I don’t agree with your evaluation of the Catholic Church or the Roman Catholic Church.
            So what, we both are self choosing and Christians.
            So lets leave it at that.

          • ADRoberts

            Agreed. But I hope that you can continue to grow in your faith. Just for fun, check out doctrine of the Church of the Nazarene.
            God has told me to do a job about putting doctrine of all churches on the internet so people can compare. The next step would be to document the scriptures that back and go against any doctrine. That is right. Both.
            That way, everyone can see where the doctrine comes form.
            Much of it is NOT from the Bible at all. But is tradition. I live near a lot of Amish. And I have found out that MOST of what they are is tradition. And it is not that good. But they are VERY WELL OFF financially.
            Not good to put tradition before Bible doctrine.

          • I appreciate your willingness to spread your belief and that is good for folks who might be lost or misguided sheep and God bless you for doing that.
            I am happy with my beliefs which are in essence aligned with yours but in America as religion is a choice relating to ones individual choice.
            I am happy where I am at and don’t wish to research other religions but thanks for the offer.
            God Bless

          • ADRoberts

            It matters not if you OR I am happy with our beliefs. It only matters if GOD is happy with us.
            One GREAT COMMISSION. Acts 1;8.
            Christians have ONE purpose in their service. And the deceiver is very effective in getting people to “rationalize” not doing anything. (Church of Laodicea.)
            By the way I really don’t want you to switch your “religion”. But I would like for you to consider that you can GROW in your faith and be closer to God today than you were yesterday.
            Service to God is NOT static. Either we are getting closer to Him and what He wants for us or we are getting further away.

            Court Rules That
            Christie Administration’s $11 Million+ Grant To
            Religious Schools Violated NJ Constitution

            In a groundbreaking victory against government sponsorship of
            religion, a New Jersey appellate court ruled that the administration of Gov. Chris Christie violated the New Jersey Constitution when it awarded more than $11 million to two religious institutions of higher learning. This decision
            by the Appellate Division represents the first major state court precedent in almost 40 years concerning New Jersey’s prohibition on using taxpayer funding to support a religious
            ministry.

            The ACLU of New Jersey, national
            ACLU, and Americans United for Separation of
            Church and State successfully challenged New
            Jersey’s grants of $10.6 million to Beth Medrash
            Govoha, an Orthodox Jewish yeshiva in Lakewood,
            and $645,323 to Princeton Theological Seminary,
            a Presbyterian seminary, both of which are
            dedicated to religious training and engage in
            discrimination. The yeshiva trains Orthodox
            Jewish rabbis, excludes women, and employs only
            male, Jewish faculty. The seminary “prepares
            women and men to serve Jesus Christ in
            ministries” and permits only Christians to be
            degree students or faculty.

          • ADRoberts

            Amazing. I can read and I understand what the word say when it says, “shall not establish ……. a religion” All of these godless men who rule against funding an organization, doing work that other “religions do and get money for, is just more proof that we have now a group who ARE antichrist, and whose logic and rationalization is for the purpose of silence Christians.
            SOOOO much of what has been ruled against concerning Christians had NOTHING to do with ESTABLISHING a religion.

            Can you say CORRUPTION.
            Can you say ANTICHRIST.
            Can you say eterminty in pain and anguish because, “there is a way that seemeth right to man, but the end, thereof, is destruction.

          • homegirl

            I refer you to the First amendment to the Constitution. Fewer and fewer people are buying into the promise and threat techniques of religion, especially in the Western world. Save your preaching for Sunday morning and street corners.

          • ADRoberts

            You don’t have a clue. But some day, you will find that you are without hope and have no one to turn to. Maybe you will remember what it takes.
            If not, you had better keep a way to get hold of those who do know how to find God. It is simple. But you HAVE TO ASK.
            Now since you are such an expert on the First Amendment. do you have any idea why real Christians DON’T trick, force or even ask people to accept Jesus?
            It is really very simple. IF God were desperate to get you to accept Him, all He has to do is pull back the VAIL and say BOO. And everyone WOULD bow and worship Him. He desires to be chosen.

          • homegirl

            Amen Brother! Put a nickel on the drum and you’ll be saved.

            Its people like you that are making “Christians” hated and ridiculed.

          • ADRoberts

            Want to compare?
            I will gladly testify about my faithfulness to Jesus and God.
            1. I am monogamous for life. I am sure that you won’t admit how immoral you are.
            2. I don’t drink alcohol and never have. There is a possibility that you might also be clean of abuse by alcohol. But not likely
            3.. I don’t use any drugs, illegally. Let’s hear you testimony about keeping free from playing with things that change your perception of reality.
            4. I have been involved in miracles. That is where I prayed and God answered with absolutely impossible answers that ONLY HE could have provided

            Now about those people who are looking for an excuse to reject the love of God, I don’t have to worry. God knows your heart and theirs. ANd NO excuse of pointing a finger at me or any other real Christian and crying about how we MADE them reject God’s plan of salvation is going to change God’s mind.
            I an 67 and in my life, I have heard all the claims of those who are desperate to escape their GUILTY CONSCIENCES.
            There it is. God does NOT use excuses from those who reject Him.
            And the only people who PLAY the card of claiming they can be excused from accountability for their actions are those looking for a way to NOT allow God to take control of their lives.

          • homegirl

            I do not:
            Smoke
            Drink alcohol
            or use illegal substances
            and being older than you my fornicating days are over.

            In your world you are “blessed” for being involved in miracles. I have seen many miracles, thanks to science and modern medical care.

          • ADRoberts

            I am not so easy to deceived. I will ask again.
            Have you ever smoked, drunk or used illegal drugs or used drugs illegally.
            And I don’t count science or medicine as being qualified to be called a miracle.
            No, I am talking about that interaction that comes between God and a man or woman.

            Sorry, Your deflection and deception did not work.

            Now one more chance.
            Is Jesus Christ LORD of your life. But before you answer, you might want to look up the definition of LORD.
            Ir would appear that you really don’t even pretend to know anything about God.

          • ADRoberts

            Now we can set up a scenerio. At judgement Bar of God, the selfish person approaches and starts to claim that they would have accepted God, but for the persons they had observed in life who did not make them “feel” warm and fuzzy and pleasant.
            And God will tell them AND YOU that not a single person who accepts Him EVER did so without struggling with the desire to MAINTAIN CONTROL
            Then He will point at Adam and Eve and tell them, “Their offense was WANTING TO BE GOD, and rfefusing to obey.

            I am so sorry for you. You are one of those spoken of in Romans where it says, “they not only have pleasure in doing what brings death, they delight and approve of those who do what is wrong.” (Paraphrased) Romans 1:32.

          • homegirl

            Hey, Armchair Christian-Converting me should not be your prime objective. Try getting off the computer and go out into the streets and help the poor, sick and disabled. Go do the work that Jesus and your God directed you to do.

            “They shall know you by your works.”

          • ADRoberts

            Wow. Such a weak attempt to deflect.
            I AM doing what God tells me to do. But since you pretend to know what God says to me, maybe you can tell me what specifically, I am doing that God does not like? DON’T EVEN GO THERE. You aren’t that good of a person or that smart.
            LOL
            Now a simple question. IS JESUS CHRIST LORD?

          • homegirl

            You still don’t get it-I don’t care what you do, I am not impressed by your “Cloak of Holiness.”

            To your simple question: NO.

            And you are very judgemental, surely the Bible has something to say about that. “Judge not, lest ye be judged .” Do you think God likes that? Surely all judgement is HIS.

            Now, go away and pray.”

          • ADRoberts

            So many times I have had FAKE Christians use that verse. And I have PROVEN to them that they did not bother to find out what it meant.
            The verse is NOT about judging PERIOD. It is about judging with FALSE AND EVIL standards. “For with the same measure you judge, you will be judged by.”.
            Yes, you did not bother to actually read the Bible or you would have seen that. You would also have seen that in the SAME chapter, OF MATTHEW, is says, “by their fruit ye shall know them. So what is the difference between judging and KNOWING who people are? Simple. Pronouncing punishment and making sure that punishment is carried out.
            Now it is my turn. I don’t have a cloak of Holiness. My standing is before God with my trust being in HIM. I DO what is right. I am monogamous for life. ARE YOU? I don’t drink and never have. I don’t smoke or use any tobacco. I don’t use illegal drugs or use legal drugs illegally.
            So where is this “CLOAK” you want to smear me with.
            I got it. You are so lacking in the righteousness of your life that you THINK that by making sure NO ONE can claim to being righteous and holy, it will justify your wickedness.
            My holiness is on for God. You don’t even pretend to do what is right.
            GUILT is all you have.

          • ADRoberts

            And by the way. You DO care that a person can be righteous. That is because by even ONE person being righteous, it condemns your refusal to even try to do what is right.

          • ADRoberts

            Just reread the thread. And it is still there. You have no knowledge of what an Evangelical is. And like most Catholics, you lack a basic understanding of how salvation works.
            1. Lamb in OT for sacrifice for sins. Once a year. Did not change the hearts of the people. Continued to sin.
            2. Jesus, as the SON of God was without sin. He would never have died. So his death COULD be for our sins, since it was NOT for his.
            He had none.
            3. Just like the OT lamb, all we have to do is lay our hands, (figuratively) on Jesus and say, “This is my sacrifice for my sins”.
            4. Having accepted Christ, it is now to wait for the Holy Spirit to come, when we have DIED to our selfish nature, and take control of our lives. This is SANCTIFICATION. And it is what happened at Pentecost..
            All you have to do is SEEK God with all your heart. Finding a real Christian to encourage you and give you guidance does help.

  • Rhesa

    Conserve means to save like the constitution, the laws of the land or anything else that is important, like conserve on food. Conservation is like a piece of land that you are saving. Conservation comes from the word conserve. TO SAVE IS CONSERVATIVE.

  • Wanda

    The government really prevented the lead in the water in Flint, Michigan didn’t it. I have personally run into bad water right here in Ohio years ago and the government did not do anything but support the ones providing the bad water. Read the side effects on medicine. How many times does it actually go so far as to say that it can result in death not the mention all the other things it can cause. I have experienced becoming next to crippled from what? From medication. Would have if my doctor did not finally realize it was the med. But I do have some other benefits resulting from taking that same med… like Diabetes and Thyroid problems… both side effects. And as for jobs… well, look for them in some other country because government regulations has driven them out of ours. As I said before just because the government throws money at a program does not mean it is a good program. I have seen the wrong diagnosis given for mental illness and wrong meds. Government causes as many problems as it claims to help… more by the time it gets done. How long do you think that mental health and health care are going to be around when it comes to the subject of cost effectiveness? It seems to me that depression is one of the side effects listed on med side effects as well. And care will be denied more and more due to “quality of life” and “cost effectiveness”. Perhaps you trust the wisdom of the government a bit too much. And I really like men being able to go into public restrooms with women, teenage girls, and little girls… and boys into the girls restrooms and locker rooms… how about those showers. Yes, let us trust the government more.

  • Wanda

    I am not so sure that Trump planned this at all. I do not think that he even expected all this to happen. I think it was born out of anger for the establishment… a protest that took on a life of its own.

    • Wanda, I think Trump had a plan and it worked,
      Why? Too many people were dissatisfied with both Bush’s and Obama.
      Those people were happy with Reagan.
      We want a change and our government needs to change and represent the people not the fat cats in Washington DC.
      Trump saw a need to fill as people were fed up.

      • Wanda

        I think you are giving Trump too much credit. I do not think he planned this. But he is an opportunist and knows how to take advantage of opportunities that come his way. A hound in an Irish hat could have walked into that because of the protest mood. I think Trump is more surprised than anyone else. As for his connections with the Clintons. Add the Bushs to that list. Clinton while governor of Arkansas was involved with George HW Bush and then GW Bush. Trump is no Ronald Reagan.

        • The “hound” in the Irish hat is my English Bulldog Mr, Bodacious Big Tony is too smart to involve himself in politics.
