Antifa believes it is pursuing the opposite of authoritarianism. Many of its activists oppose the very notion of a centralized state. But in the name of protecting the vulnerable, antifascists have granted themselves the authority to decide which Americans may publicly assemble and which may not. That authority rests on no democratic foundation. Unlike the politicians they revile, the men and women of antifa cannot be voted out of office. Generally, they don’t even disclose their names.

People who tend to lean more Republican/Conservative more often than not put more focus on the more dogmatic aspects of Christianity. The dogmatic aspects of Christianity are important because they preserve the structure. People who tend to lean more Liberal/Democratic more often than not put more focus on the more spiritual side of Christianity. The spiritual aspects of Christianity are important because they update the structure. Both are important and play their role.

One aspect of the Republican platform, which by the way I’m not advocating, that does I feel speak to Christian values is the concept of personal responsibility. In the end you will need to give an account to God and nobody will be able to vouch for you on your behalf. Ultimate responsibility for your Christ-like walk and faith lies with you. What you will find by studying the political platforms is that both sides have aspects that are biblical and other aspects where they are not. That’s why there really is no correct answer as to which political side a Christian ought to advocate for and why politics can divide the church.

Democrats Are Becoming All They Claim to Hate

Democrats, Trump, and the Ongoing, Dangerous Refusal to Learn the Lesson of Brexit

Election 2016 has now concluded and the president is now Donald Trump. I am pretty satisfied with the results and glad that it happened in the way that it did. Trump was not supposed to win. Trump was confronted at every turn by the establishment elite, media, polling, entertainment industry, financial industry, etc. and yet still prevailed against their wishes. Why did this happen and why did Trump win?

Trump had a message that resonates. Trump was masterful at getting people enthusiastic to vote for him. Furthermore the growing movement of authoritarian progressivism is largely to blame. People have lost patience with the political correct movement and social justice with their selective justice. People are tired of political issues (terrorism, illegal immigration, trade, etc.) not being addressed and having establishment politicians tell you with their infinite wisdom how you ought to feel about said political issues. People are tired of not being able to discuss racial issues or gender issues without being labeled and lambasted. What essentially happened was a complete shift in the parties which was unprecedented. Who would have thought that the Republican party would run a populist versus a Democratic corporate candidate.

Where do we go from here? That is unknown but I think we have a good idea that something is going to happen given Republican control of all major branches. The Republican party is in a conflicted state with establishment Republicans at odds with the newly risen alt-right. The Democrats are a broken party with no real leader also divided between liberals and progressives. We could see major changes in the next 4 years from both parties. It would be wise though for Democrats to not choose a candidate among themselves instead of allowing the democratic processes to take place.

But I will end on a positive note. The world is still alive and the Sun came up. Markets will rebound as they always do. Life will continue on as God wills it.

This needs more views. I don’t always agree with the Republican party (I tend to be independent) but he is absolutely spot on. Blacks/African-American’s always forget it was the Democrats that favored slavery, Democrats who continued Jim Crow, Democrats who championed public housing creating pockets of strife and violent crime, and its Democrats who are screwing over Blacks today by having economic policies that keep blacks/African-Americans dependent on the government. The naivety that blacks/African Americans have displayed in the political ring must change. Take charge of your own thinking and don’t be a mindless Democratic slave.
