To The Daily Sun,
A bit of caution to the evangelical Christians who voted for Donald Trump; don’t follow blindly. There is no question that you are ethical Christians but many of you have chosen to continue to support a corrupt leader as he leads you into the swamp. There is no justification for endorsing a man who has sown the seeds of destruction. He’s slowly debasing the office he holds. An office that he was elected to by smearing his primary opponents, actively inciting hatred of Hillary Clinton and, if we can believe some of his campaign aides, got more than a little comfortable with Russian agents.
Now, what about where you stand on the Mueller investigation? Do you, as Christians, endorse the actions of some the Trump aides? Do you endorse the concerted efforts of some Republicans to discredit Bob Mueller personally, while trying to establish some distance between the president and his former aides who have admitted acts of corruption? Is this a repeat of the Ken Starr fiasco?
There are some other issues lurking at the edge of all this. Can we applaud the efforts to change our tax obligations? Will we be better off without the Affordable Care Act? If so, then why are so many in the insurance and medical provider fields not totally agreeing? Is massive Medicaid the answer to affordability of care? Something isn’t adding up here. What is going to happen to the health care system?
Can we expect Mr. Trump to defend us after he manages to anger those who should be our allies? Are his efforts on trade going to get us a better “deal?” How can we endorse his stand on environmental issues? Can we figure out how he is going to solve the immigration issues when his answer seems to “build my wall?” Maybe he can finance it himself with the windfall that will be due him after the passage of the congressional tax give-away. There’s going to be some stimulation but won’t be the economy. The Republicans can kiss off the middle income vote in 2018. You can take that to the bank. You think the 2016 election was bitter? Wait till you see what comes next. The majority in Congress is going to evaporate when this “tax reform” hits the fan!
