“U.S. won’t ‘collapse’ because of same-sex marriage and abortion.” — Lt. General Michael Flynn
Update: Flynn now says he’s a “pro-life Democrat.” “This pro-choice issue is a legal issue that should be decided by the courts. I believe in law. If people want to change the law, they should vote so that we can appoint pro-life judges. I believe the law should be changed,” Flynn told Fox News. He must really want that VP spot.
Evangelicals are already reluctant to vote for Trump. The only thing that’s giving many of them pause is seeing Hillary Clinton sworn in as President in January 2017.
I view Trump as a way to rid our nation of the Clintons once and for all. We may actually end up with a working Congress if Trump is elected. That’s a good thing. No one will be able to pull either the race or woman card when Congress opposes something unconstitutional Trump does.
Trump could blow any chance he has by picking a pro-abortion/pro-same-sex marriage VP. The following was written by David Lane of the American Renewal Project:
Lt. General Michael Flynn . . . on “This Week” demonstrated why he’s a lifetime Democrat. He aligns more with Democrat value voters than with the Republican Party base of Evangelical and Pro-Life Catholic Christian “Values Voters.. “Issues like abortion and same-sex marriage are not at the top of retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn’s list of priorities, the former intelligence official and registered Democrat who is reportedly being vetted as Donald Trump’s running mate said Sunday.” (Source)
It seems that General Flynn might bring more to the table for the Hillary Clinton for President campaign than Donald Trump.
John McCain received two million fewer Evangelical voters in 2008 than George W. Bush collected in 2004. Romney lost an additional two million Evangelical voters in 2012 than McCain earned in 2008. Four million fewer Evangelical voters “turned out” in 2012 than in 2004. If Donald Trump cannot move Evangelical and Pro-Life Catholic Christians to the polls on November 8, 2016, he cannot win.
Let’s be frank, politically, General Flynn’s pro-abortion and same-sex marriage positions forfeit his right to be considered for the Republican VP position in 2016; that is “if” the GOP desires to win.
What’s more, the predecessor of the Republican Party — the Whig Party — collapsed in the mid-1800s over its leaders trying to expand an evil — slavery — into the new territories. Analogous to the 19th-century Whigs is the secular Republican Establishment leaders that are trying to expand same-sex marriage and abortion into the Republican Platform in Cleveland this coming week.
Secular Republicans, who with a wink like to call themselves “Reagan conservatives” embrace little of Ronald Reagan’s Christian conservatism, they lack an ethical base.
Homosexual marriage and abortion, adopted into the Republican Platform in Cleveland, will collapse the Grand Old Party, both as its natural consequence and its fitting conclusion.
