God needs bold warriors
This past week has been hard. We all feel it. In President Donald Trump we have a man who has protected the unborn; this country; the working man and woman; victims of human trafficking; and who had the courage to move the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem. This president is the first one who stepped into the Demilitarized Zone of North Korea since the Korean War in the 1950s; he destroyed ISIS; and he has stood up to our enemies. In addition, all Americans - women, minorities, etc.- benefited from his economic policies. And, he protected us from the encroachment of socialism. Yes, the accomplishments of the Trump Administration are many.
So, when the Republicans (including VP Mike Pence), with few exceptions, rolled over and allowed the proven election and voter fraud to go unaddressed, it was a betrayal to the 75 million Americans who voted for President Trump. The betrayal and cowardice came from Republican-controlled state legislatures, Secretaries of State, Governors, Senators, and Congressmen. They refused to fight back. The President's legal team had evidence of the fraud. There were hearings with eyewitnesses and evidence in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Georgia, and Michigan, and Nevada. The only thing needed were courageous Republicans. (Yes, the judiciary punted, but the Constitution gives the authority on elections to legislatures.)
What was striking is that the VP Pence wears his Evangelical Christianity on his sleeve, and there's no doubt that he is an honorable and decent man. However, when it came to standing up, and sending the electoral votes back to the states who asked him to do that, he folded. VP Pence did not have the courage to simply send the votes back to the states who asked for him to do that - Pennsylvania, Arizona, etc. Let's be clear that he was not asked to unilaterally overturn the election. He was asked to send it back to the states, so that the legislatures could address the fraud, and yet he caved.
One of key lessons learned here is that it's not enough to be a nice Christian. We must have courage and be bold. God used a brash billionaire from New York City to do His will. Yes, Pence may be more religious than Trump, but he is not as strong or as bold. Being nice does not save unborn children or a nation.
