One big move that could win over ‘Never Trumpers’
Even as the GOP establishment drifts ever leftward, mutating into a “progressive” monstrosity nearly indistinguishable from its DNC Capital Club drinking buddies, a group of conservative delegates has crafted what’s being called “the most conservative Republican Platform in history.”
By the grace of God, this platform was adopted in Oz this past week at the 2016 Republican National Convention in Cleveland.
Now, to unify the Republican Party and admit into triage an America on the precipice of total collapse (and to put us on the road to recovery), nominee Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress should immediately pledge to implement every plank of the platform over the next four-to-eight years, reversing that which may already be irreversible – the “fundamental transformation” of America (read: the intentional and treasonous sabotage of this once great nation) at the hands of Barack Hussein Obama, America’s executive enemy within.
If Mr. Trump will make a very public guarantee that, if elected, he will work tirelessly to implement the 2016 GOP platform, such pledge, followed by subsequent overt acts, would go a long way toward winning over his many remaining conservative naysayers. Who knows? Even National Review might hold its nose and hop the Trump Train.
America can’t afford this platform to be ignored as simply a wish list of soaring platitudes intended to placate the conservative base of the GOP. It must be adopted and implemented as the blueprint for America’s future.
While in no way comprehensive, here are key platform planks. Headings are my own:
San Francisco-style social engineering vs. national defense
“We believe that our nation is most secure when the president and the administration prioritize readiness, recruitment, and retention, rather than using the military to advance a social or political agenda. Military readiness must not be sacrificed on the altar of politically correct social agendas, which this administration has done.”
Obama’s repeal of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” and his housing of men in miniskirts (transgender) in the ladies barracks has done more to destroy troop morale and unit cohesion than any other weakening of our U.S. military. Homosexual rapes are now at an all-time high as a result.
Obama has also launched a wholesale attack on Christianity in the ranks of the armed services. This must be stopped.
Right to freedom of health care conscience
“We likewise support the right of parents to consent to medical treatment for their children, including mental health treatment, drug treatment and treatment involving pregnancy, contraceptives and abortion. We urge enactment of pending legislation that would require parental consent to transport girls across state lines for abortions.”
This would also secure the right of children who have been sexually abused to seek necessary therapy from a licensed therapist to address the root cause of unwanted same-sex attractions that often result.
“The American family is the foundation of civil society and the cornerstone is marriage, the union of one man and one woman. … we do not accept the Supreme Court’s redefinition of marriage and we urge its reversal, whether through judicial reconsideration or a constitutional amendment returning control over marriage to the States.”
Christians are under attack due to this absurd SCOTUS opinion. It has pitted government against the free exercise of religion and will result in millions of motherless and fatherless children. Until this plank is implemented, civil disobedience is the only option.
“Any honest agenda for improving health care must start with repeal of the dishonestly named Affordable Care Act of 2010: Obamacare. It weighs like the dead hand of the past upon American medicine.”
