Our Heritage; Are we equal to the task at hand?
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
We at Save Our Nation are proud Americans and our views will be grounded in equality for all,

Below are the 28 Contractual Items that Trump laid out today (October 22, 2016) at Gettysburg. (The were copied from Breitbart’s coverage of todays event and can be found at the link shown in Hat Tips below.)
This is the first time a real commitment has been put down in contractual form since Newt Gingrich’s “Contract with American” in 1994. Trump’s list is considerably longer than that of Gingrich but then again the Washington Global Elitist, Democrat and Republican, have created many more problems since 1994!
Below each item are my comments regarding each point. Trump’s items will require several paths to be followed depending on the item. Either an Amendment to the US Constitution, Congressional Approval, or Execution Action will be required. The Constitutional Amendments may take some time but the only way to ensure that key issues cannot be tampered with by future Presidents and Congresses. Many of Trump’s items will make Congress squirm more than just a little. The key thing to remember that all of his remedies are allowed within the Constitution from a strict constructionist sense. That makes a Republican RINO in Congress squirm even more!!!
One other takeaway from these 28 contract item is the genius of Trump picking Mike Pence as a running mate. Trump needs a solid ally working with Congress, on both sides of the aisle, to get these items through Congress. Some will require a Herculean effort on the part of Pence and the Congressional leadership but a Trump election is a signal to Congress that the People are Now Back In Charge! Plus, Trump, is a great spokesperson for his agenda and will not hesitate to take to the airwaves to help Pence heel Congress! Should be fun to watch!
“Contract with the American Voter”
Propose a Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress
Constitutional Amendment: If Congress will not initiate, Trump can call on the Governors and their legislature to initiate the process of establishing term limits similar to the 1947, 22nd Amendment that limited the Presidency to two four-year terms. Constitutional Amendments are not easy to process and pass but they can be done. The last amendment was passed in 1992. In the past, Trump has talked about limiting Senators to two terms, 12 years total, and members of Congress will be to 6, 2 year terms for a total of 12 years. The details will be negotiated but I would hope that the plan for term limits put forth by Mark R. Levin would serve as the model. Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Institute a hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health)
Executive Order or Congressional Action: Trump could issue an Executive Order to implement the hiring freeze and limits. This has been done in the past by various Presidents regardless of what you will hear in the MSM. If Ryan and McConnell understand the mood of the country, they should volunteer to push through legislation. Don’t hold your breath!
Require for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated.
Executive Order or Congressional Action: Trump will most like use an executive order to enforce this limit but once again, if Congress has any sense of the American voter, they should act in concert with Trump.
Institute a five year-ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service
Executive Order AND Congressional Action: Trump can require all White House staff and appointees to agree to not becoming lobbyist after they leave government service. Congress will have to enact similar legislation to limit their own members and staff. If Congress refuses to act, all members of the House and those members of the Senate that are up for re-election in 2018 would be held accountable. Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Create a lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government.
Executive Order: Trump can require all White House staff and appointees to agree to not becoming lobbying on behalf of a foreign government after they leave government service. This is slightly different from being an actual lobbyist so it is a necessary distinction.
Institute a complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.
Congressional Action: Trump will engage Congress to pass a law prohibiting foreign lobbyist raising money for US elections. This would include money funneled through unions, PACS, or private foundations, like the Clinton Foundation. There is no reason to allow foreign agents to help fund campaigns or efforts in this country. We give up our very sovereignty when we do. Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Announce intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205.
Executive Order: Trump can renegotiate NAFTA on his own and withdraw if necessary under Article 2205 which simply reads, “A Party may withdraw from this Agreement six months after it provides written notice of withdrawal to the other Parties. If a Party withdraws, the Agreement shall remain in force for the remaining Parties.” Finally a government document you can read! Trump will not need Congress to approve or disapprove. There will have to be serious tariff discussions and other details between the US, Mexico and Canada if this comes to fruition!
Announce withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
Executive Order: TPP has not be submitted to the Senate for ratification by Obama and probably would not be taken up if it were at this point. Trump would just have to announce his intention that the US will not participate in further discussions to approve this agreement. Presumably Trump would engage in negotiations with the individual nations regarding trade and avoid ceding authority over the US by an international arbitration agency.
Direct Secretary of the Treasury to label China a currency manipulator.
Executive Order: This will trigger a series of discussions within the World Trade Organization (WTO) regarding China’s actions. Other nations, possibly including the US, may get pulled into scrutiny. But, it will put the world on notice that this practice of de facto tariffs on competitive goods will not be tolerated by the US.
Direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers and direct them to use every tool under American and international law to end those abuses immediately.
Executive Order: Similar to labeling China a currency manipulator, discovering and adjudicating trade abuses will require intense scrutiny and a great deal of negotiation and possible legal action. Between the two items, Trump will be sending a message that business as usual is over with the US. Reaction will certainly be interesting!
Lift the restrictions on the production of $50 trillion dollars’ worth of job-producing American energy reserves, including shale, oil, natural gas and clean coal.
Executive Action and Possible Congressional Action: This will probably be the biggest boost to the US economy long-term of any of Trump’s proposals. I am hedging my bets in how this can be accomplished as there may be laws on the books regulating these activities. If what Trump attempts to do has not been limited by Congress in the past, then he can probably push forward on his own as Obama did in strangling our energy industries. The offshoot of lifting these limits will yield lower energy prices, really put OPEC in a bad position in trying to regulate oil prices, create a lot of jobs directly and in support of these industries. Since oil prices are relatively low, less costly exploration will go forward prior to an all out assault by the energy industry. The coal states will see an immediate boost in employment and revenues. I would like to see Trump add a “rebate” for taxpayers as our energy windfalls create additional revenues. He should also earmark a percentage of gains to reducing the national debt!
Lift the Obama-Clinton roadblocks and allow vital energy infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline, to move forward.
Executive Order: Part of #11 above. This will help assure our Northern Partner, Canada, that the US values their energy partnership and start to build a North American Energy partnership with Mexico being included. More jobs, less pollution, and more revenue!
Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.
Executive Order: Trump should sick Ambassador John Bolton on this one plus a review of all funding of the UN by the US. The UN has grabbed onto the climate change fiasco in order to redistribute money to themselves and whoever they want to prop up. I wish I could believe that global warming was real and that the waters around Manhattan would rise and swallow up the UN building!
Cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama.
Executive Order: Trump may have carpel tunnel syndrome by the time he signs all of the Un-Executive Orders! This will save billions of dollars as well as reduce the power of many federal agencies and bureaucracies. He should go back to 1992 to make sure that Bush I, Clinton, and Bush II don’t have any “stinkers” in the pile!
Begin the process of selecting a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on my list, who will uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Submission of a Supreme Court Nominee to the Senate: This should be a quick action item for Trump. It will be interesting how the Senate Republicans react! The Democrats will fight to block any of the 20 but McConnell has to stand up and fight back. If the Republican lose the Senate, then Trump will have to fight in the court of public opinion to get his appointments through the Senate’s barbaric process.
Cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities.
Executive Order and Maybe some Congressional Action: Much of the funding through federal agencies to States, Cities and Counties can be cut off via executive order. If there are any Congressional funding mechanisms on the books, Congress would have to vote for a rider allowing the President to cut off funds if he deemed the agency to be a “sanctuary” haven for illegal aliens. As an Ex-California Mayor, I fought for this back in the 1970’s when this nonsense of sanctuary cities started. Gov. Brown of California will fight tooth and nail on this one as he was a strong proponent of sanctuary cities in the 1970’s! Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Begin removing the more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants from the country and cancel visas to foreign countries that won’t take them back.
Executive Action: The laws are already on the books for removing illegal aliens, especially those who have committed felonies in the US, and sending them back to their home country. I doubt that foreign countries will refuse to take back their “citizens” when facing the loss of foreign aid, visas and trade. Trump and the US is in a strong position on this item.
Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur. All vetting of people coming into our country will be considered extreme vetting.
Executive Order: Trump can use an executive order to suspend immigration and direct Homeland Security to create and enforce safe vetting procedures. Suspension of immigration from specific areas have been done by many administrations in the past including Obama/Clinton when they suspended immigration from IRAQ!
Work with Congress on a Middle Class Tax Relief And Simplification Act; an economic plan designed to grow the economy 4% per year and create at least 25 million new jobs through massive tax reduction and simplification, in combination with trade reform, regulatory relief, and lifting the restrictions on American energy. The largest tax reductions are for the middle class. A middle-class family with 2 children will get a 35% tax cut. The current number of brackets will be reduced from 7 to 3, and tax forms will likewise be greatly simplified. The business rate will be lowered from 35 to 15 percent, and the trillions of dollars of American corporate money overseas can now be brought back at a 10 percent rate.
Congressional Action: This will not be a quick fix for Trump. It took Reagan quite a while to get his tax program somewhat through Congress. Congress uses the tax code to pay off their donors so there will be more pigs in this blanket than with any other proposal. The sooner this is enacted, that faster the economy can start to turn around and revenue start to flow. In the end, if the Republican can keep even a marginal majority in the House and Senate, this can be attached to a budget bill and passed with a majority in both houses. If Congress fails to act on Trump’s proposal, the 2018 elections will be bloody. Trump will be campaigning for or against Congress depending on if they support his Tax Plan! Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on an End The Offshoring Act Establishes tariffs to discourage companies from laying off their workers in order to relocate in other countries and ship their products back to the U.S. tax-free.
Congressional Action: One would think that this would be a no brainer for Congress but this is at the heart of Progressive Globalism. This Act encourages our companies to produce goods in low wage countries and does not punish them for laying off American Workers. This is part of Trump’s overall strategy of bring back American manufacturing and preventing it from leaving in the future. You would think that our labor unions would be behind this and indeed the workers are. But the union leadership in charge of money laundering campaign contributions for Democrats are not. If Congress fails to act on Trump’s proposal, the 2018 elections will be bloody on this one as well. Trump will be campaigning for or against Congress depending on if they support his repeal of this act! Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on an American Energy & Infrastructure Act; Leverages public-private partnerships, and private investments through tax incentives, to spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment over 10 years. It is revenue neutral.
Congressional Action: This plan would partner private and public funding of needed energy and infrastructure projects to allow us to build up our roads, airports, bridges etc. This is not like Obama’s stimulus as it creates a “bond” type of funding for these projects rather than drag down on the US Treasury. Once again, the Porkers in Congress love this kind of legislation so it will remain to be seen if Trump comes out with a pure form of his proposal. Once again 2018 may be an impetus for Congress to act! Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on a School Choice And Education Opportunity Act; redirects education dollars to gives parents the right to send their kid to the public, private, charter, magnet, religious or home school of their choice. Ends common core, brings education supervision to local communities. It expands vocational and technical education, and make 2 and 4-year college more affordable.
Executive Order and Congressional Action: Many of the required changes can be driven through the Department of Education via executive orders. Congress will have to pass enabling legislation to redirect Common Core programs as well as for the proposed school choice provisions. Many vocational programs exist and should reviewed for relevance. Some of these may be retooled with additional Congressional approval required. Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on a Repeal and Replace Obamacare Act; fully repeals Obamacare and replaces it with Health Savings Accounts, the ability to purchase health insurance across state lines, and lets states manage Medicaid funds. Reforms will also include cutting the red tape at the FDA: there are over 4,000 drugs awaiting approval, and we especially want to speed the approval of life-saving medications.
Executive Order and Congressional Action: Trump can use executive orders where authorized to tweak down Obamacare while Congress works on repealing and replacing Obamacare. This will be an ugly Congressional fight and the Republican will not fight dirty with their own rules in order to accomplish the repeal. Ryan and McConnell will be on the hot seat for this now as they can’t use the Presidency as their scapegoat. They will know that they are not facing a veto now for acting! Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on an Affordable Childcare and Eldercare Act; allows Americans to deduct childcare and elder care from their taxes, incentivize employers to provide on-side childcare services, and creates tax-free Dependent Care Savings Accounts for both young and elderly dependents, with matching contributions for low-income families.
Executive Order and Congressional Action: Some of the funding to start some of the programs can be redirected via executive orders. But some of the substantive changes will require Congressional action. As many of these are tied to the tax code, some can be appended to the budget and other tax code changes. Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on an End Illegal Immigration Act; fully-funds the construction of a wall on our southern border with the full understanding that the country Mexico will be reimbursing the United States for the full cost of such wall; establishes a 2-year mandatory minimum federal prison sentence for illegally re-entering the U.S. after a previous deportation, and a 5-year mandatory minimum for illegally re-entering for those with felony convictions, multiple misdemeanor convictions or two or more prior deportations; also reforms visa rules to enhance penalties for over-staying and to ensure open jobs are offered to American workers first.
Executive Order and Congressional Action: Trump can re-prioritize current laws and funding to push through much of this via executive orders. Congress may have to add appropriations and to modify federal sentencing standards and guidelines. Most of the Visa provisions can be enacted by Trump via executive orders as well. The balance will have to be worked out with Congress and Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on a Restoring Community Safety Act; reduces surging crime, drugs and violence by creating a Task Force On Violent Crime and increasing funding for programs that train and assist local police; increases resources for federal law enforcement agencies and federal prosecutors to dismantle criminal gangs and put violent offenders behind bars.
Executive Orders and Congressional Action: Much of the needed funding can be pushed through the Department of Justice once that SWAMP is drained. Community block grants and other funding mechanism could be enacted via Congress to insure quick improvement can be made at the LOCAL level. Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on a Restoring National Security Act; rebuilds our military by eliminating the defense sequester and expanding military investment; provides Veterans with the ability to receive public VA treatment or attend the private doctor of their choice; protects our vital infrastructure from cyber-attack; establishes new screening procedures for immigration to ensure those who are admitted to our country support our people and our values
Executive Order and Congressional Action: This is a big undertaking and will probably be done in steps with some via executive orders and some with legislation. Congress will have to work with Trump on the budget to restore military funding. A lot of the veteran aid can be done through executive orders using existing legislation and some legislative tweaking. Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Work with Congress on a Clean up Corruption in Washington Act; enacts new ethics reforms to Drain the Swamp and reduce the corrupting influence of special interests on our politics.
Executive Order and Congressional Action: The Washing DC swamp is pretty big and deep so draining the swamp will require multiple approaches. Trump can clean up the bureaucracy within Federal agencies pretty much through executive orders. The swampy Congress will have to clean up their own swamp under the loving guidance of Trump and the pesky voters! This will be fun to watch as Trump will undoubtedly appoint a “Super-Swamp-Monitor” to help drain the swamps! 2018 Elections will also be on Trump’s side. Pence will be instrumental in shepherding the legislative needs.
Well, Trump laid out his contract to you, from him. It is up to you to go out and vote for yourself by voting for Trump/Pence on November 8th!
Amendments to the US Constitution-Article V: “The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress;…”
Trump’s Message to the “Arrogance of Washington DC”
Trump’s stump message, “The Righteous Verdict of the American Voter will be heard by the Arrogance of Washington DC” came through loud and clear at last night’s debate in Las Vegas. Hillary’s demeanor and responses were the epitome of the Arrogance of Washington DC elites. Her condescending grin only served to convey contempt for the entire process that she was tolerating in order to reach her rightful place on the throne of the highest office in the nation. The debate was a stark contrast between a populist-conservative and a quintessential Washington DC elitist insider.
Stark Contrast in Philosophy on Display
American First Vs. Globalism
Domestic and Economic Issues: The contrast between Trump and Clinton could be summed up as being a comparison of Trump’s unleashing the individual by stripping away the shackles and greed of government versus Hillary’s increasing government size and encroachment into our lives, in every facet of our being, while increasing our dependence on the government. Trump’s economic plan included across the board tax and regulation cuts and Hillary’s included increasing taxes on the rich and not touching or increasing regulation.
Foreign Affairs: Internationally, Trump contrasted a foreign policy of peace through strength behind his banner of America First against Clinton’s continued meddling in foreign matters and further diving into the abyss of global policing and regime change.
Supreme Court Views: The contrast was never more severe when the question of the Supreme Court was raised. Trump’s originalist view of the Constitution versus Hillary’s internationalist view of the Constitution was stark with the former insuring an America based on our Founder’s principles and words versus her view that the Constitution is a living document and should be conformed to current conditions.
Abortion: Trump was the first Republican Presidential candidate in memory to take on abortion head on. In no uncertain terms, he stated that Roe V. Wade should be overturned and the abortion question returned to the States. He also stated that partial birth abortion was never acceptable. Hillary stated that she was a strong supporter of Roe v. Wade and that partial birth abortion was a critical element of a woman’s right to choose. She also defended Planned Parenthood but erroneously stated the PP provided needed mammograms and other cancer preventions which is simply not true. PP is not even licensed for such procedures.
Trump Tweaks the Main Stream Media (including Fox) Again!
Classic Trump came out when asked whether he would support the outcome of the election. True to form, ala first Republican Primary Debate, Trump stated “I will look at it (election results) at the time.”! The MSM, pundits and commentators went ballistic and that was their take-away for the debates. Then, at today’s Trump campaign stop in Delaware, Ohio, Trump stated:
“To all of my voters and supporters and to all of the people of the United States, that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election if I win.”
Trump went on to say that after he reviews the results of the election, presumably State by State, he would decide whether to concede or not based on whether there was wide-spread fraud OR if the vote counts were close enough to trigger statutory recounts and certification. This is the LAWFUL POSITION ALL CANDIDATES SHOULD TAKE! Why would you promise to CONCEDE BEFORE THE ELECTION? Al Gore refused to accept the results of the 2000 elections and had to be sued by Bush to get the Supreme Court to uphold the Florida recount and the overall election results. Kerry in 2004 likewise took a position that Bush had Rigged the election costing Kerry the election.
Trump still knows how to manage the media as he bought himself at least 2-3 days of 24-7 comments with this tactic! No one ever said Washington Elites were bright!
Footnote: Chris Wallace of Fox News was the debate moderator who performed well and was fair to Trump and Clinton while bringing our the real issues facing our nation whether the issues were comfortable to the candidates.
This week’s Fox Presidential Poll was disturbing as it showed a significant gain by Hillary over Trump. BUT, when you look at the 64 pages of the “internals” of the poll, you quickly see that the poll was deliberately manipulated!
The preference or “how would you vote today” section showed that on 10/16, Hillary cornered 48.5% of the respondents while Trump was down to 40.0%! One month ago, 9/16, the poll was virtually deadlocked with only a half a percent difference. Hillary came in at 45.5% and Trump was on her pumps at 45.0% which is a virtual tie.
So, what happened? Was it the 11-year-old recording of Trump trash talking or was it something else. Why did 3,000 WikiLeaks emails have no impact on Hillary’s numbers? The answer is that the poll was cooked!
How? Just poll a higher percentage of Democrats versus Republican registered and likely voters. The chart below shows the sampling breakdowns for both 10/16 and 9/16 for both Democrat and Republicans. Fox increased the percentage of Democrats from 40% on 9/16 to 44.5% on 10/16. This is an increase of 4.5% more Democrats that were included in the poll. But, it is worse! Republican voters comprised 37.5% on 9/16 but were reduced to 35.5% on 10/16! This is a decrease of 2.5% of Republican respondents.
When you add the increase in Democrats with the decrease in Republicans between 9/16 and 10/16, you will find that the 10/16 poll sampled 6.5% more Democrats in the current poll! In the 9/16 poll, the difference between Democrats and Republicans was on 2.5%. In the current poll this difference was increased to 9.0%.
Why would Fox Do This?
First of all, have you heard ANY Fox anchor, analyst, reporter or janitor even hint that the internals of the polling were changed? NOPE!
So, when Fox News has been leaning slightly more towards Trump the Hillary, why would they join with the left and cook the polls to show Trump declining in order to discourage Trump supporters? Trace the attitudes at Fox to the departure of Roger Ailes and the take back by Globalist Rupert Murdock and his sons of Fox News that is owned by Murdock’s parent company News Corp.
Murdock is an open border, “Free Trade” proponent, globalist who strongly disagrees with Trump’s policies regarding immigration, border security, trade, and many others. Murdock, Fox, now is subtly, or not, moving Fox towards an Anti-Trump atmosphere. Murdock is fighting Sean Hannity, Lou Dobbs and others who openly support Trump. The Murdock boys even have come out and said that the anti-Trump pin-up host Megyn Kelly is the future of Fox.
So, you really need to begin to filter what you are hearing on Fox like you do with CNN and other MSM outlets. The message may not be overtly anti-Trump, but the innuendo will lead to a pro-Hillary conclusion. From now until the week before the election, do not get discouraged with polls that show Trump down.
Keep pushing, campaigning and exposing the utter gutter corruption of the Clintons
or we will lose the White House, the Supreme Court,
Hillary Clinton Represents Progressive Globalist Leftist
Anti-Catholic / Anti-Christian Abolitionists
Goal: Corrupt or Eliminate Catholicism/Christianity
To Establish Moral Relativism as THE Religion
WikiLeaks confirmed that the Progressive Globalist Left have the elimination of Christianity or the complete transformation of Christianity where it accepts moral relativism as its core belief. In 2011, email threads between Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, Campaign Chairman John Podesta and John Halpin from the Center for American Progress, spelled out the Progressive Globalist Left and the Clinton campaign goals to force Christianity and Catholics to accept gay marriage, birth control, abortion, euthanasia, and other policies considered to be an anathema to Christianity/Catholicism.
The saddest part of this story is that 55% of Catholic voters support Hillary and only 34% support Trump.
This Clinton Trio slammed conservative Catholic’s faith as; “amazing bastardization of the faith”. As someone who was baptized Catholic then as a Baptist, I firmly believe that Christian/Catholic faith is based on the Holy Bible and that our beliefs have not been “bastardized” as they are inextricably tied to scripture. Some have tried to bend scripture or ignore passages that are uncomfortable for them but they are the outliers, not those who ground their faith in the Bible.
Ken Auletta’s for the New Yorker mockingly wrote about Rupert Murdock, Owner of News Corp the parent of Fox News; “Friggin’ Murdoch baptized his kids in Jordan where John the Baptist baptized Jesus”. Ridicule of faith practices or scriptural references displays the overwhelming godless psyche of a non believer who worships at the altar of moral relativism.
John Halpin wrote to Podesta and Palmieri, “Many of the most powerful elements of the conservative movement are all Catholic (many converts) from the SC and think tanks to the media and social groups. It’s an amazing bastardization of the faith. They must be attracted to the systematic thought and severely backwards gender relations and must be totally unaware of Christian democracy,”. Halpin goes further than Auletta basically stating that scriptural teachings on “gender relations” that forbids same sex relationships is “severely backward”.
The most idiotic statement, and one that exposes their collective ignorance, is the use of the term“Christian Democracy”. This is code for moral relativism! Christians and Catholics believe that the Scripture was given to man by God and that God never intended for us to engage in a democratic debate as to which part of scripture to follow! The scripture is the scripture, it means what it says, and there is no room for moral relativism.
God did not send down the 10 commandments and with a note saying pick any 7 of the 10 you like!
In 2015, Clinton herself stated that “deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” She was referring to Christian and Catholic acceptance of abortion, gay marriage, birth control and other “legal” activities. The dictate contained in the words “have to be changed” are scary and disturbing coming from a person who may become the President of the United States! She and her staff consider religious tenants and beliefs to be BIASESrather than Scripturally Founded Faith Based Beliefs. I wonder if she would say the same of Islam in public? Probably not.
If you are a Christian or a Catholic (I do not like separating Catholics from Christians but that is another story) and you are thinking of voting for Hillary Clinton, please reconsider.
Hillary is for abortion on demand at any point in gestation period.
She is pro euthanasia as well.
Hillary obviously believes that Christians and Catholics have to change their beliefs to conform to moral relativism.
Hillary believes that the “Johnson Amendment”, forbidding the clergy from discussing political topics during church services, is perfectly fine and does not violate our first amendment rights but is absolutely does.
Trump’s position on these topics is the polar opposite of Clintons and parallels our Scriptural Faith and Beliefs. Hillary will continue to erode the role God has in our nation and further condemn us to living in a godless society where morals are subject to anyone’s own desires,
Below are recommendations for the statewide measures and the Monterey County issues.
For the Presidency, I recommend
Donald Trump for President!
Prop 51: No; School Bond Funding
$9 Billion bond to upgrade k-12 and community college facilities. I believe we need a total overhaul of school funding operations from the ground up.
Prop 52: Yes; State fees on Hospitals for Medi-Cal
This keep the mandatory use of these fees for only Medi-Cal. A no vote allows the Legislature to use these fees for anything they want which is never a good idea
Prop 53: Yes; Revenue Bonds
This requires the voters to approve any bonds greater than $2 Billion. I wish we could outlaw all bonds!
Prop 54: Yes; Legislature and legislation procedure change
Requires the Legislature to publish on the internet any bills for 72 hours before they can vote on it. This should say that they have to read it and take a test before voting!
Prop 55: No; Tax Extension for education & healthcare
Keeps the personal income tax increase on incomes over $250K until 2019. The State does not need any more taxpayer money. It needs people who are fiscally responsible.
Prop 56: No; Cigarette Tax to fund healthcare
Oppose the additional $2.00/pack tax on cigarettes. THIS HURTS THE POOR THE MOST. The money never goes to healthcare.
Prop 57: No; Criminal Sentencing
Opposes increasing parole and good behavior opportunities for felons convicted of nonviolent crimes. Keeps the current system of having prosecutors decide whether to try certain juveniles as adults in court. Obama let enough people out of prison.
Prop 58: No; English language education
Keeps the English in Public Schools proposition in place. Not a good idea to allow any language to be used as the primary language in our PUBLIC schools.
Prop 59: No; Overturn Citizens United Act Advisory
Stop the legislature from trying to overturn the Citizens United SCOTUS decision via Constitutional Amendment. This keeps businesses and unions equal in terms of campaign contributions.
Prop 60: No; Adult films use of condoms
If you are a porn star, a Yes would make you use condoms. No vote allows you to play Russian Roulette.
Prop 61: No; State prescription drugs pricing standards
Regulates drug prices for Medi-Cal by pegging to the VA pricing. Anyone think the VA is efficient or economical?
Prop 62: No; Death Penalty Repeal
This would repeal the death penalty. This is a Jerry Brown favorite. He does not use it anyway…
Prop 63: No; Firearm, ammunition sales
Just another law to help restrict your 2nd Amendment rights. Gun owners already have to apply and have a permit to buy a gun. This requires a permit to buy ammo.
Prop 64: No; Marijuana legalization
Allows for recreational pot purchases. If Jerry Brown gets back in I may favor this so I can “stop the pain”!
Prop 65: Yes; Carry-Out bag charges
Keeps the money collected for OVERCHARGING YOU TO BUY A BAG AT A RETAIL STORE to be used only for Wildlife Conservation Board. Personally, I think this whole concept should be repealed.
Prop 66: Yes; Death Penalty Reform
Shortens the appeal process to 5 years. Today, those on death row usually outlive the judge, jury, attorneys and certainly the victims of their crimes.
Prop 67: No; Plastic bag ban veto
Bans plastic bags at retail outlets on a statewide basis. Of course California would be the first state to do so. We all just Go to Costco now and by our own plastic bags!
Monterey County Measures:
Measure Y: Yes; Measure to tax commercial marijuana businesses in the unincorporated areas of the county.
Tax on pot growers. Guess we might as well get something out of this insanity.
Measure X: No; Oil and gas drilling operations.
Another “envirowhacko” measure designed to stop oil production in California. Talks about fracking which isn’t even required in California oil fields.
US Senate: Loretta Sanchez; only because Kamala Harris is worse!
Government Corruption, with Media Complicity, Created the NEED for WikiLeaks!
The MSM is clearly in the tank for Clinton and is clearly targeting Trump to hide the Clinton scandals and weaknesses.
WikiLeaks obtains most of its information from hackers around the world then publishes it on the internet. Normally I would not condone such activities BUT given the death of our 4th Estate (a free press), We the People need and deserve the truth. We need to know the level of corruption in our government, and we need to know the duplicity of our governments.
While ends do not justify the means, when one side, the Globalists Elites, our globalist supportive politicians and the MSM, is totally corrupt and supportive of anti-American positions at the expense of We the People, I’ll take information from WikiLeaks!
We need to ask ourselves the question;
“Are WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden any more of a traitor to the truth, our security and our own well being than the duplicitous Global Elitists, our Global Elite Politicians, and their bought and paid for Main Stream Media?”
Without WikiLeaks we would not have many of the Clinton emails that she illegally destroyed in spite of those documents being under federal court and Congressional subpoena! Hillary Clinton is running for President of the United States. That position is the standard bearer for freedom and opportunity around the world. Corruption at that level endangers the entire world and certainly the moral position of the Presidency and the United States itself. We do not need another President who asks a question like “It depends on what the definition of “is” is!”
We continue to learn more and more from WikiLeaks every day. None of this information is being focused on or even reported by the MSM. The Trump “P Tape” ran 24 hours a day for 72 strait hours by the MSM. But Clinton mocking Americans, Bernie supporters, Catholics, Christians, Rednecks, and all other groups that do not support Hillary, are hidden by the MSM. Sexual ACTIONS by Bill Clinton and other Democrats are glossed over as “Boys will be Boys” but the Trump “P tape” is touted as the end of our very civilization. Hillary touts Katy Perry and other women voting in the nude but Trump crossed the line!
WikiLeaks has even disclosed that the MSM and the Clinton/Obama regimes are one and the same. The MSM makes sure Hillary and her surrogates get advance copies of interview and debate questions. The DOJ conspired with the Clintons to make sure Hillary was not held accountable for her email server, obstruction of justice, and outright lying to Congress and the FBI. The MSM buried these stories and got them off of the news cycles as soon as possible.
This election is about our very freedom. While Trump may not be your ideal guest to invite to dinner, he is the ONLY thing standing between We the People and a complete destruction of the US Constitution and our very existence as a democracy!
Hillary’s New Justices: Merrick Garland, Barak Obama, Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch.
Hillary’s winning of the 2016 Presidential campaign will signal the end to the original intent of the US Constitution, personal freedoms, and our great nation as we have known it. She will continue to take this country down the rabbit hole of Globalism, Centralization of Power and Socialism.
If Hillary is elected, she will add left leaning Merrick Garland first giving the left a 5-4 advantage. Justices Kennedy (80), Ginsberg (83), and Breyer (78) will most likely retire within the next 2 years if Clinton is elected. Depending on his health, Thomas (68) could retire within the next 4-8 years! Hillary’s list of replacements include Barak Obama, Eric Holder, and Loretta Lynch. Loretta will most likely remain as Hillary’s Attorney General as I am sure she was promised in her tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton! At some point, Hillary will put her on the Court! The offshoot is a hard progressive controlled Supreme Court (6-3) for the next 25 plus years. If Thomas leaves the court within Clinton’s reign, the court will be 7-2! The original intent of the US Constitution will be gone forever!
If you care about this country, the future of your children and your grandchildren, then all of the talk about Trump’s demeanor, his temperament, and his fitness for the Presidency of the United States is irrelevant if you value the US Constitution; personal freedoms; capitalism; freedom of speech, freedom of religion; freedom to bear arms; and the very existence of the United States as we have known it.
If you consider yourself a Conservative, but are a #NeverTrump person, you must suffer from a self-mutilation complex, or schizophrenia, or are just plan nuts if you vote for Hillary.
Trump’s published Supreme Court nominees would reset the conservative nature of this court and ensure that we stop our march towards self-annihilation! A vote for Hillary is a vote to abolish the very nature of our nation and its foundation, the US Constitution!
