christian conservatives are losing their minds over trump

The christians and their love for trump and the gop party is starting to blow up in their faces. Today was a great day as Roger Stone was arrested and will most likely spend the rest of his miserable life in jail.

Over 100 Charges, 34 People and 3 Companies so far in the Mueller Russia collusion probe.

It is no witch hunt! The hammer is going to fall and I hope the christians know that more progressives are starting to run and win offices.

Their interfering into politics must come to an end and I believe the tide is starting to turn.

Separation of church and state is a must and we should never give up or give in to their demands!

I think the conservatives, fundamentalists christians will radicalize further, and even if Trump lose, they will lose more nefarious means.

Trump did live up to his campaign promise to the theists, that he would roll back many secular laws, and to install a nutcase in the Supreme Court. They will vote for him next election cycle.

Maybe, I have learned to never underestimate a tRump's fanatic's loyalty to tRump.

Trump did have a few victories but they are few and do not gain much for the bulk of tRump's fanatical base. The supreme court nominee (barely! wasn't even really his choice he just "signed off on it.") The secular laws stuff, environmental stuff, and ofcourse the big tax break for the rich and powerful.

It is very likely however that by November 2020 trump would have failed to deliver on:

- failed to: ending affordable healthcare act (Obama care)
- failed to: building much of any new south border wall (So far more new wall has been built while Obama was president!)
- Will most certainly fail on getting Mexico to pay for the wall
- failed to: suspend immigration from terror prone places
- failed to: cancel funding of "sanctuary cities"
- failed to: establish a commission on radical islam
- failed to: Insure that criminal aliens convicted of illegal re-entry receive strong mandatory minimum sentences.
- failed to: end birthright citizenship
- failed to: defund planned parenthood (this is impossible as the bulk of PP funds is now via private donation.)
- failed to: invest $550 billion to revamp U.S. infrastructure
- failed to: Administer Medicaid through block grants

That is a lot of failures, an attack ad on Trump in the run up to the election writes it self. Even some of tRumps victories could be used as ammo against his own base as 3 years after the big tax break people are going to notice things have not gotten any better for the common (not hyper rich) person.

To make matters far worse, none of that got done while GOP controlled all branches of the government. Now democrats control the House, and successfully won a stare down contest almost immediately with tRump completely surrendering giving Pelosi exactly what she asked for and getting nothing in return except a majority blame for a 5 week shutdown.

Anything can happen in the future, and I would say, yes: plenty of diehard tRump fanatics will still vote for the guy, but tRump is going to lose the next election hard, (remember he just barely! won 2 years ago, and still lost the popular vote by millions.)

Two tRump fanatics in my own family have both stated they have now lost all respect for tRump, with the latest one deciding yesterday "I backed a spineless liar!" They both hate Pelosi with a deep burning passion however.

Trump easily won the election, defeating Crooked Hillary by 77 votes.

@Diotrephes
You literally quoted me saying: "popular vote."

I am well aware trump won the electoral college vote by 77.

I consider it a travesty of democracy that electoral college vote supersedes the popular vote. Even if it went the other way where if my choice for a new president won the electoral vote but lost the popular vote by millions. (My choice was not Hillary btw, even though I think we are way past due for a female president.)

Curious, were you a trump supporter? Are you still now? If so, do you think trump still serves your best interest? Especially after seeing the list I posted? How would you respond to that? Obviously if you do not want to share this and stay away from debate here in the atheist hub I completely understand. I am just curious, just like I am curious how theist think and reach their conclusions I am curious how a trump supporter (especially one that still is at this point and time) reaches their conclusions.

LogicFTW,

"Curious, were you a trump supporter?"

I voted for lying trump but my vote didn't count because he didn't win in my State. I would have voted for a space alien vampire werewolf instead of Crooked Hillary and her disgusting Bill.

Did you know that lying Trump was the fourth President who lost the popular vote but won the Electoral College vote and became President?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_presidential_electio...

The main thing I want Trump to do is to build the wall and comply with Public Law 109-367.

I knew Bush Jr lost the popular vote but won the electoral vote. (Perhaps with a bit of help from his bro jeb bush down in florida.)

I actually lived in florida at the time, was of voting age but did not vote. (Yeah that was a mistake I only made once.) But then I was 18 and young and stupid. I cared more about cars and girls then I did taking the time to register to vote.

I knew there was others, don't remember who they are. Oh they were both in the 17th century no wonder I did not know.

Another question you do not have to answer, as again this is the hub and not debate section:

Would you be satisfied with effort being done to further secure our borders and prevent illegal immigration, if it was effective and increased border security and decreased number of illegal aliens in the country? Or does there have to be new physical wall built included in a border security package?

You voted for lying trump,

You voted for lying trump, which shows you are not only ignorant, but stupid as well. Yes stupid! Build the racist wall? The facts have shown that a wall would do nothing but waste money. Drugs get in through the point of entry, not under a wall! Fact, more drugs get in through Canada, so we need a wall there?

Crooked Hillary? That is propaganda started by conspiracy theories, right wing evangelicals and the Russians! Which are you? All three?

You are an uninformed idiot or just plain hater. Hillary did win the election and when the Mueller report comes out, it will shock even us liberals at just how evil trump is. He said that when he tear gassed women and children at the border, it was not going to harm them! His ICE agents have been accused of child molestation, much like his reported rape of a 13 year old girl that was brought out in the news before the election. He is a known liar, racist, fraud, cheat and career criminal and only the crazy church people and hillbillies would vote for him! Which are you? Both! Take your hatred of Hillary elsewhere. She did not get in and is not the issue. Nancy Pelosi should be president with Adam Schiff as Vice.

I am sick and tired of ignorant asses like you!

Thank you so much for the daily joke. I really needed a good laugh and you gave me one. Thanks again, you are a swell guy.

@LogicFTW

I agree with everything you stated.

Let me offer an outside view. Trump and his minions are a working example of how not to govern, and how a democracy should never be run.

You have a buffoon at the helm, one who is in so deep even his hair can not keep him afloat.

Other democracies will be better because we are learning what not to do. The politicians are concerned, and the citizens are now on guard against Trump style tactics.

Awww, look at the poor little orange snowflake... he needs his Government Shutdown safe-space and is a part of the Conservativeally Correct (CC) Right... and he's crying about the glass ceiling in between him and his beloved Great Wall of America... I can't wait until he gets melted by that climate change whose existence he and his fellow CC Rightists continue to deny! LOL

"Hear hear! First Amendment FTW! Say no to theocracy."

Christian theocracy has never existed in the USA and there is no threat of it, not in your wildest imaginings. Islamic theocracy, however, is possibly lurking in our future. At the present rate of immigration and the current birth rate Islam will reach 50% of the Canadian population within 50 years, according to a demographer on CBC radio (compliments of Justine Trudeau). Look at the money the US government will save when its military only has to drive north to engage the Islamists instead of having to transport men and equipment to the Middle East. Oh, but you might need a wall on your northern border. :(

"Minds? They have minds?"

Yes they do. Before November 2015 I sounded pretty much like you. I've grown wiser. :)

Have you ever listened to Ben Shapiro? I've never heard a clearer articulation of why Trump was elected. I've never heard a saner approach to political analysis. Shapiro, of course, is an orthodox Jew and I don't take the entirety of his views, but in 2016 I began looking around for media coverage I could trust and I settled on The Daily Wire. Shapiro did not vote for Trump, but thinks now he might. You want some smart reasons to consider the Republican ticket, check him out.

Oh, and yes, I am an atheist.

Ben Shapiro is a very smart

Ben Shapiro is a very smart person and incredibly good at debating. It is not his "beliefs" that carry the day, but his debating skills.

If you watch this video you may alter your perception of Shapiro, and also be a better debater.

@Bob L: I've never heard a clearer articulation of why Trump was elected.

Trump got elected by finding angry mobs and shouting with them. Now he finds himself tied in knots trying to keep the rash promises he made about building walls and punishing China. He's not a conservative. He's an opportunist showman.

My comment about conservative Christians relates to their inability to judge candidates on anything other than their professed religious views.

I'm far from what Americans would call a "liberal". I believe that politics should be about achieving the national consensus needed to maintain law and order and defend the borders so that people and businesses can make a living and get on with their lives without hurting each other or the environment. Coercion and taxation should be kept to a minimum within those parameters. Religious/ethnic/gender politics makes as much sense to me as religious/ethnic/gender car maintenance.

Its a great start. But much, much still needs to be done. Especially in the United States the task of de-Christianisation is an arduous one, more so than in many European countries.

"The christians and their love for trump and the gop party is starting to blow up in their faces. Today was a great day as Roger Stone was arrested and will most likely spend the rest of his miserable life in jail."

Or it was a travesty of justice? A fully armed swat team to arrest an old man who doesn't even own a gun. How much did that show cost the tax payer? Oh, and was it really a coincidence that CNN was camped out front when the FBI arrived?

"It is no witch hunt! The hammer is going to fall and I hope the christians know that more progressives are starting to run and win offices."

No, it is a witch hunt! The left is out to get Trump any way they can. When Hillary's Pee Gate scandal didn't pan out it's on to something else. It is all part and parcel of Trump Derangement Syndrome, I am sure. Maybe Stone is guilty of something but I won't condemn the man until the facts are available.

"... I hope the christians know that more progressives are starting to run and win offices."

About Nov 2015 I made the move from the Left to the Right. Oh, I still have a lot of left leaning ideas Christians would not be too fond of, but I came to recognize an extreme bias in the mainstream media that corrupts the fairness of the reporting. Also, I sincerely believe the social media platforms are out to silence conservative voices. There are a lot of dirty tactics being played out by the Left that I expect to increase the closer we get to the election. The tyranny of the Left is that it always attempts to silence those voices it does not agree with. I am very much afraid of the direction the country is moving in and my fear is not a of Neo-nazis or conservative Christians. The Nazis are too few and the Christians too disorganized (and they are not likely to shout you down, unless they are from the Westboro Baptist Church).

Did I vote Trump? Naw, I'm Canadian. We have Justine Trudeau and I'd trade him for Trump at the drop of a hat.

thelargerbowl's picture
Canadian eh? Canada knows how

Canadian eh? Canada knows how to treat their citizens, healthcare, allowance for kids, no mass shootings, etc. A Canadian for trump? What is in the water where you live?

Don't even try to convince me or any sane person that the right wing, gop party and trump would be the way to go. trump is a career criminal, liar, racist, womanizer and most importantly a failed business man who thought he could run the country without any political experience. WRONG! Huge deficits, a tax scheme that is blowing up in the faces of the DUMB and ignorant fools who voted for him. Business dealings with russia and is guilty of treason, which i would love to see him punished for!

Demonizing the left is what he does best. It is called propaganda and the weak listen and follow without clue as to what he really is all about, "HIMSELF." You have you facts wrong. The right wing party distorts and spreads mis-leading statements about the left. They want to take away any kind of healthcare, food stamp program, tax cuts for the working class, better paying jobs. The don't give a fuck about the environment, deny climate change, are against abortion and love to tell women what to do with their own bodies, while they rape them however and then it is okay to have that abortion. The deregulate everything, give big tax breaks and subsidies to millionaires and billionaires and are ant-union and basically anti-American.

So while I admire Canada for it's culture and the decent way they treat their citizens, what I don't like is someone who doesn't even live here telling me how things are here when I am living the nightmare that is trump! You have it wrong and that is a fact!

Canada does not want trump or even us Americans visiting as they are afraid we will stay. trump does not need a wall to keep Mexicans out! Canada will need one to keep us out if somehow that demented animal get's back in!

Stop listening to right wing radio and learn to be a Canadian which is a socialist country. You have it all wrong and that is a fact, not an opinion! In closing Hillary would have been the best thing to happen when you look at trump!

No conspiracy theories here.They are for paranoid alt right nut jobs.

Take off you hoser!
