How I should vote, should be determined by what I believe.

How I should vote, should be determined by what I believe.

Holly Garcia has been a friend of mine for many years. I believe this article will benefit every believer who is looking for a proper way to state how they vote. Holly has given permission to share  this position article. This election is critical for the continued preservation of this country.
 

This is a very small list of differences between President Trump and Joe Biden, plus revealing the goals between the Republicans and Democratic Parties. This is only to help you by being informed. Yankee

LAW ENFORCEMENT & CRIME

President Trump is clear in his position on Law Enforcement and our Constitution. We have a serious problem with Law and Order that the majority of Democrats are ignoring. Some people very much understand that this country is in a serious battle between good and evil. We watch (and pray) as Democrat politicians excuse or even march with the lawless — stealing, killing, raping, destroying, and burning down our cities. They say nothing when our police officers are killed or even ambushed. The Left haven’t called anyone who has been shot and told him/her, “I’m proud of you”. Instead they’re silent when their ‘peaceful protesters’ mob the ER and try to block their entrance, all while calling them “pigs who need to die”. These types of people are bad seeds, and the lawless left is promoting these things while chanting ‘defund the police’ right along with the riotous mob.

I’m proud of and thankful for the Police Officers that have been protecting and serving us. I’m not going to get into the minuscule amount of bad apples in any organization. People don’t want to be discriminated against as a whole because of bad apples in their group, but evidently that courtesy does not go both ways. Incidentally, I am also proud of and thankful for our firefighters, first responders, front line medics and military. 

With President Trump, we saw the crime rate falling every year after the last two years of Obama’s term. He also stands for law and order – highly respecting and supporting the police, first responders, our border patrol, ICE officers along with our military. I thank and pray for them all.

LIFE

As a believer, I am most unapologetically pro-life. Killing a baby is a do-not-pass-go line for me and for many Christians (and should be for ALL with no excuses). If not, why not?

President Trump has been the most pro-life President we’ve seen so far ever. I also appreciate that he made animal cruelty a felony. Most gave that lip service but did nothing. Same with those who say they are also pro-life, but will still vote for the most Pro-Abortion ticket in history. I’m appreciative of Trump halting the money Obama signed into supporting foreign abortions. God will not approve any of us turning a blind-eye to these murders.

Deliver those who are drawn toward death, And hold back those stumbling to the slaughter.

If you say, “Surely we did not know this,” Does not He who weighs the hearts consider it?

He who keeps your soul, does He not know it?

And will He not render to each man according to his deeds? Prov 24:11-12

ISRAEL AND THE MIDDLE EAST

I was so excited when President Trump moved our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, which is the Biblical capital of the Kingdom of Judah and the Jewish People. God blesses those who bless Israel and curses those who curse it. I wonder sometimes how it works for America when on the other hand we have all these anti-semites among us. We have the openly anti-semitic Ilhan Omar. Or even the VP hopeful, Kamala Harris, praising Al Sharpton (another long-term anti-semite). Not too long ago, he led a mob targeting innocent Jewish homes, breaking windows, setting cars on fire and ultimately murdering an innocent Jewish bystander, all while chanting “bloodsucking Jews” and “Jew bastards” — all over a tragic car accident.9

President Trump is working on peace in the Mideast, and peace and economic development in Serbia and Kosovo (his second Nobel Peace Prize nomination). Although we know there will be the Anti-Christ who will be able to achieve or force peace in all of the Middle-East countries, this is different and Trump’s lineage doesn’t fit. I only mention this as some naive believers tend to panic and think they’re voting for the ‘man of peace’. Trust me, he is not ‘that man of peace’ the Bible speaks of. The world is not saying “peace and safety” right now (1 Thess. 5).

Doing well on his foreign policies, he has done a lot to make us safer, energy independent, and number 1 in Petroleum, crude oil production and natural gas.6 And he put the coal workers back to work. These things boost our economy and keep us as safe as the Lord allows of course.

Isaiah 5:20

SECURE BORDERS, SEX TRAFFICKING, PEDOPHILIA

Since President Trump took office in January 2017, there have been nearly 12,470 arrests for human trafficking, according to arrest records compiled by investigative journalist Corey Lynn, and over 9130 victims rescued. The most disturbing part of this is the false ‘fact checkers’ who debunk it based on the fact they say there is no evidence.15,16 They lie.

I agree with Trump’s war on drugs
and spending money to fight the opioid crisis, which also ties into the security of the borders. Since I am living in a border state and have been the personal victim of an illegal’s crimes against me and my family, I am thankful he wants to do more to secure our countries borders and build walls to protect us from not only drug cartels but terrorists from across the world. Remember 911? Many came across the border through my state. Some dressed to look different, yet carrying prayer rugs. This is not an isolated incident.

I am glad he put a quick stop to ISIS and killed a bunch of high level terrorists without ever going to war (as his detractors said he would). These terrorists are coming at us from all angles. Not only do coyotes bring these people, but some are sex traffickers that steal children and transport them both ways across the borders. This is common knowledge, not racism. This needs to stop and Trump wants to do this in securing our borders, Biden wants to open them.

President Trump’s policies on Law Enforcement have already secured THOUSANDS of arrests of these sick sexual predators.7,13,15,16  He signed the “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act” (FOSTA), which includes the “Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act” (SESTA). Both of which give law enforcement and victims new tools to fight sex trafficking. He also set up a national hotline for people to report or victims to ask for help.13 Ask yourselves, why hasn’t this kind of action been taken in previous administrations concerning Harvey Weinstein, Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, etc.? Why weren’t all the politicians and even some in law enforcement (L.A. Psychologist, sheriff, police officer etc. were arrested with thousands of pictures of child pornography). President Trump shut down one of the largest porn sites and it serviced over 100 countries. NOW you know why the extreme left is so mad. This is their world and Trump is cleaning it up with the help of many others. They hate him.13,15

Ruth Bader Ginsburg was one who changed some rape language to make it more gender neutral and whereas it was originally rape if someone was 16 or under and didn’t consent, somehow it got changed to twelve years of age (she wrote the paper).2 I know that Snopes and such places have falsely debunked this, but I went and looked at the paper myself, so see if you understand it the same way (in footnote 2). So I for one am very thankful he is appointing a third justice, and that the Supreme Court justices he has already placed will be interpreting the law based on the Constitution — the love of it, and our country.

Think about disturbing people like California Senator Scott Weiner who passed a bill to legalize perversion being legal on younger and younger children (much like RBG as noted above) — he was endorsed by none other than Biden’s running mate, Kamala Harris.10

Kamala Harris has made some very bad decisions in her career as an AG. Would you prefer her or proven Vice President Pence as a possible President should anything happen? Kamala Harris hurt many inmates, opposing DNA testing when she was Attorney General that could have freed a lot of innocent men. She failed to reveal evidence that could have freed 1,000 inmates (it was done with a judge later). Why? You cannot play fast and loose with people’s lives.14

HEALTHCARE

On O’biden care, my premiums went up by 50% and my coverage and doctor availability dwindled drastically. As a small business owner, I am thankful he stood for several things. One is being able to band together with other small businesses to get the same discounts in insurance, that’s a pretty big deal. I also got a refund last year for them overcharging me, that was also due to Trump. Market increase for competition is supposed to go up at least 50% which will lower the healthcare premium for me.

As diabetics, I am very happy he is fighting the cost of insulin as well as other prescriptions, along with ceasing the pharmacist gag-order on sharing lower-priced options and allowing imports on some drugs from places like Canada. I like his ideas tax policies on those who are chronically ill (concerning HSA savings in advance). Signing an Executive order making all health care providers disclose the cost of their services, including hospitals, so consumers can comparison shop is another healthy choice.

Our President signed the Right To Try law allowing terminally ill patients access to experimental therapies. I think on what this would have meant for my late husband who died far too young. Try looking at RNC speaker Natalie Harp’s true story here.

I personally am hopefully that potential therapies like HCQ and inhaled steroid therapy among other things will be left between doctors and patients within reason. I believe the President will work to make that happen.

CLIMATE CHANGE

I have opinions about the ‘science’ of Climate change as a believer. I know very well this earth will be here 1,007 more years at least. God is in control, and the earth is going nowhere till then. 

I don’t like listening to the Climate Change hypocrites ad nauseam who run their big cars, fly their private jets, and have filthy, trashy, cities they never clean up, and only get worse. They consume their steak and lobsters and champagne and all the rich foods, all while telling you to do the opposite. Trump may not see eye-to-eye with them on these things, but he did sign the Save Our Seas Act funding millions each year to clean tons of plastic and garbage from the ocean. He also signed the largest wilderness protection and conservation bill in a decade (designated 375,000 acres as protected land). He also extended the offshore drilling ban along both Florida coasts as well as the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina.

I’m not going to get into monies given to forestation, and who is responsible. Or the limiting of selective logging and save the owls. Or the management of the forest floors. A lot of these things contribute to the problem.

But I am going to state it angers me that fires have been started and arsonists quietly arrested in California, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Phoenix, Arizona (4 locations near my house), and NOT ONE WORD from democratic politicians. Or there is outright denial, blaming it all on Climate Change. Or worse, Black Lives Matter and Antifa put out posts to suggest to their followers to start fires to bring attention to climate change.

The vast majority of the public just wants the truth to be told about these kinds of things. And I have plenty of proof in newspaper stories, pictures and videos taken by citizens, police stories, photographs of Molotov cocktails, as well as true stories from arson investigators. So please do not tell me that arson is not a large cause of these fires.

Some don’t like that Trump withdrew from the Paris Accord. What some may or may not understand, is the restrictive nature of such an agreement, and the devastating effect it would have had on many things — including American employment, our economy and even GDP (and more).  I’m no expert, I’ll leave it to you to decide.

AMERICA AND PATRIOTISM

Unlike the Liberal side, who have a suspicious D2America slogan (I see it as ‘death to America’), President Trump loves America and stands up for our country, law enforcement & freedom. I believe he puts America and Americans first. He respects our flag and doesn’t apologize for his patriotism, even as they use that to try to call him a ‘white supremacist’ or ‘racist’. We may not have permanent citizenship in this world, but as Paul has citizenship in Rome and used it to further his ministry, let us take advantage of the freedom we have, while we have it.

If you choose to disagree with Trump, you should remember you too are an American living here freely. Our military has fought and died for your freedoms. Our Legislators, Judges and Justices fight to keep the legal system from growing corrupt. Mock if you want about George Soros heavily investing in political races, not just for Politicians but also for many District Attorneys who are letting out criminals left and right. This is not conspiracy, this is a fact, and I believe President Trump is trying to fight against this wickedness in high places.

Thankfully, Trump has appointed more federal appeals court judges to date than any recent president at the same point in their presidency.1 His appointees have been conservative Constitutionalists, unlike RBG who self-admittedly did not respect our Constitution.

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU WILL GO WHEN YOU DIE?

RACISM

Not one of the Leftist Democrats (that I know of) have donated their salary each year to needy charities. Please correct me if you know one. But I know, it’s no big deal to some because after all THEY would donate all their salary right?…

Democrats consistently call our elected President a racist or a white supremacist (as well as those of use who support him), but his record speaks to the exact opposite (if they could only break away from CNN and look for the truth for once). They twist his words and flat out lie about him. 

We know it was because of President Trump’s economic policies that we have seen the lowest Black unemployment rate ever. That included low Latino unemployment, females and youths as well.

If you know anything about President Trump working with Tim Scott and his Opportunity Zones (2017), he increased jobs and investments focusing on helping poor areas (which includes many minorities). The poverty rate dropped to an almost two decade low, along with the poverty rate for African and Hispanic Americans reaching an all-time low since we first collected this data13. Prior to the unexpected coronavirus pandemic, more Americans were employed than ever recorded before in our history. These things SHOULD impress you – that is if some weren’t so full of bitter hatred.3, 4

School choice will make quite a difference too for the education of many poor minorities. This is another significant step forward against racism. Directing the Education Secretary to end common core is huge, as well as not allowing funding to any schools that promote the very racist and violent group B.L.M. (Black lives matter organization). He also increased funding for historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) by more than 14%, and appointed a White House executive director of those HBCU’s. The President received the Bipartisan Justice Award at a historically black college for his criminal justice reform accomplishments.

In our State has well as others, he has done a lot to benefit the Native Americans here, enacting 3 historic bills. He also is working on the crisis of missing and murdered American Indians and Alaska Natives, in particular women and children.

Law and Order is crucial in this even as people say the opposite. We need the policing of poorer communities, or heavy crime areas so all can truly have freedom.

On the other hand Joe Biden has a long history of racism. Along with being a Segregationist, counting Ku Klux Klan Robert Bird a mentor, praising George Wallace (we know his history) and working with other segregationists on what turned out to be his ’94 crime bill.6 At the same time in the 90’s, Trump was fighting for Jews and Blacks to be let into the golf clubs. One of the clever things President Trump did was to send them two classic movies about discrimination: ’A Gentleman’s Agreement,’ -about a journalist who pretends to be Jewish to expose anti-Semitism, and ’Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner’ about a white couple’s reaction to their daughter bringing home a black fiancĂ©.”5

PRISON REFORM

Many of you remember the story of Alice Johnson being released. I also believe his prison reform is a very good thing (and we definitely look in to doing more for real reform). But he has given disproportionately sentenced people a second chance, (many whom are minorities) in his 2018 First Step Act. This provided not only more rehabilitation upon release, but judicial discretion in sentencing for non-violent crimes, with 90% of those benefiting being African Americans.13 Unlike Biden’s crime bill which displayed his absolute deep-seated racism and hatred for blacks (based on Joe’s long Pro-segregation stance, and his many comments about negros and racial jungles).

Trump is trying to put in decent and honest Judges and Justices who will uphold the Constitution and this will be good for us all regardless the color. We need Law Enforcement to be properly trained and protected. We want the criminals arrested, but we need to keep non-violent offenders from serving unfair sentences.

VETERANS

MSN news reported, ‘Reporters are playing word games instead of reporting the facts, and are failing to tell the public what millions of veterans know: the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has never worked better, in part because President Trump gave veterans the real, permanent choice of using private health care providers.’

I love the idea of the V.A. hotline he established for Veterans, staffing it with mostly veterans and their families. He has a completely different outlook than the status quo of politicians, he is very creative and surrounds himself with very smart people.

My husband and father, cousins and uncles were Veterans, so we have had not so great dealings with the V.A. in the past. So I am particularly thankful that the President has made reforms to benefit them (and would be very happy for more). We should take care of those who serve our country in this way.

I’m glad he’s bringing troops home too, I think we’ve given enough to other countries who don’t want us there anyway. Providing easily available mental support healthcare for those who are troubled when they transition home was a much needed decision. This includes preventive programs for Veteran suicide.

THE ‘NEWS’ MEDIA

An article I read asked if we disliked President calling out or correcting the media when they were wrong. No, I love him calling out the media, I’ve despised and avoided the manipulation by CNN, MSNBC and even some of the Fox folks. And ‘talk’ shows like the ‘View’, or the immense social presence that celebrities in Hollywood have to spew their hatred against the President, while other conservative voices are silenced or censored. We are no longer baseball and apple pie, but instead we have celeb pro-athletes who are given a platform to show hatred to other races, disrespect for the flag or our nation, the President or the party. Yes, I’m sick of their extreme prejudice, and they need called out on it.

You may not like him, but take some time to search these things out and ask what he has done for America. And done with such a vast army of powerful special interests fighting against him. 

Do you need refreshing?

TRUMP ON OTHER COUNTRIES

We were declining at the end of the Obama era in other countries favorable (or lack thereof) view of the U.S. Since then, we have been steadily climbing.11

President Trump got tough on trade with China and negotiated new trade deals with them as well as other countries benefiting the AMERICAN worker first. He is making other countries pay their fair share instead of us always picking up their tab. European countries are starting to pay their fair share in NATO. He is still working on bringing back jobs here. I never liked NAFTA, so I’m happy he got rid of that as well. Billions and Trillions have been brought back here due to so many other measures.13

Please prayerfully do your research. While we may not like some of the things Trump has done in the past, or some of the things he has said or the way he has said things, I’d ask all who read this:

What kind of judgment do you want for yourself? Someone who just judges by what someone tells them, or gets reliable witnesses and listens to both sides? Do you want to be judged with fair judgment? Are you without sin? If so, go ahead, and cast that first stone.

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and [for] all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 1 Tim 2:1-2

There is just too much in the way of his accomplishments to list here, but here are a couple of places to consider reading more of them.
