Three times during my lifetime this great country of ours has found itself on the brink of total destruction and annihilation.
The first time was, of course World War Two.
A lot of people, especially the younger generations, fail to realize just how close we came to losing. German technology was way ahead of the rest of the world. They had both operational jet aircraft and rocket aircraft, and they were working on nuclear technology. The fact that we didn’t lose may have been just a few lucky events, or perhaps it was Gods will. But if we and our allies had lost, I suspect about half of the world would have been ruled by Hitler, and the other half by the Emperor of Japan.
The second time didn’t get much publicity.
Some people who read this may not even be aware of this. It occurred in October of 1962 during the height of the Cuban missile crisis. Everyone knows all about what went on with the naval blockade of Cuba and the B52 Bombers that were headed toward the Soviet Union with Nuclear bombs. That was all well documented and publicized over the years. But, it was what was going on underwater that poised the real threat. If you are not familiar with the incident, you might want to read the following two links.
This brings us to the third time, which I’m sorry to say is NOW:Under President Obama, an ultra liberal federal government has seized more and more control over our lives. But things are going to make drastic changes as a result of the November election. It will either be a drastic change for the worse if Hillary wins. Or a drastic change for the better if Trump wins.
This year we have an unusual opportunity to control the course of history. The course of history IS GOING TO CHANGE. It is in our hands to determine the direction of that change. It is OUR DUTY to defeat Hillary Clinton and the pro-late term abortion, pro-gender-confusion, anti-religious liberty, tax-and-spend, big government liberalism that she champions.
Hillary Clinton will quickly stack the Supreme Court with ultra left wing extremists whose decisions will permanently change this country. Hillary’s campaign was financed primarily by Muslim countries, which will have a big say in who she nominates for the court. She will soon have a court which will favor Sharia Law. She will quickly replace Justice Scalia with another liberal like Breyer, Ginsburg, Sotomayor, and Kagan. This would give liberals a 5-4 majority on the Supreme Court even without Justice Kennedy, and 6-3 when he votes with them.
Also, Justice Ginsburg is 83 years old and she has had colon cancer, pancreatic cancer, and has a heart stint. Justice Kennedy is 80, and Justice Breyer is 78. Hillary could possibly nominate three or four justices to the Supreme Court, locking in a far-left activist judiciary for perhaps 30 or more years. She could also add dozens of activist judges to federal district courts and courts of appeals, the courts where 99% of federal lawsuits are decided. Judicial tyranny of the type we have never seen before would be forced upon us.
The nation would no longer be ruled by the people and their elected representatives, but by unelected, unaccountable, activist judges who would dictate from the bench about whatever they were pleased to decree. And there would be nothing in our system of government that anyone could do to stop them.
That is why this election is not just about Hillary Clinton. It is about defeating the far left liberal agenda that any Democratic nominee would champion. Liberal Democrats are now within one Supreme Court justice of their highest goal: gaining permanent control of the nation with a five vote majority on the Supreme Court, and then relentlessly imposing every liberal policy on the nation not through winning elections but through a relentless parade of one Supreme Court decision after another.
Even if Clinton were to drop out of the race (perhaps due to additional shocking email disclosures, for example), our choice in the election would be just the same, because any other Democratic nominee would appoint the same kind of liberal justices to the Court.
A liberal court would probably find the ban on partial-birth abortion to be unconstitutional (it was upheld by only a 5-4 majority in Gonzalez v. Carhart, 2007).
The current liberal agenda often includes suppressing Christian opposition to its views. So a liberal court would increasingly nullify rights of conscience with respect to forced participation in same-sex marriage ceremonies or expressing moral objections to homosexual conduct. Already Christians are being pushed out of many occupations. Florists, bakers, and professional photographers have had their businesses destroyed by large fines for refusal to contribute their artistic talents to a specific event, a same-sex wedding ceremony to which they had moral objections.
Freedom of speech would be increasingly restricted in the public square. In 2014, the Supreme Court ruled that prayers of visiting pastors who prayed “in Jesus’ name” when they opened a city council meeting were allowed under the Constitution, but again it was a 5-4 decision (Town of Greece v. Galloway) and all four liberals who wanted to restrict such prayers are still on the court.
Another troubling possibility is that liberal activists, once in power, would further entrench themselves by criminalizing much political dissent. We have already seen it happen with the IRS targeting of conservative groups and with some state attorneys general taking steps to prosecute (!) groups who dare to disagree with activists’ claims about the danger of man-made global warming.
Trump has released a list of 11 judges to show the kind of nominee he would appoint to the Supreme Court. If he appoints a replacement for Scalia from his list of 11 , and probably one or two other Supreme Court justices, then we could see a 5-4 or even 6-3 majority of conservative justices on the Supreme Court. The results for the nation would be overwhelmingly good.
Such a Supreme Court would finally return control of the nation to the people and their elected representatives, removing it from dictatorial judges who repeatedly make law from the bench.
I believe that defeating Hillary’s kind of liberalism would be a morally right action. “Whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin” (James 4:17).
