Why I Have a Hard Time Supporting Democrats
I am often asked why would someone like you who is not rich support so many republicans when they are all about the big greedy corporations. That always makes me laugh those people don't understand that the party is not about the big corporations but about a concept I believe in. That is free enterprise.
That is a concept falls under our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Those are inalienable rights meaning they are given to us by God as described in The Declaration of Independence. The Republicans see success as a good thing and that is why they think highly of big business. That in no way means they don't support small business.
On the other hand, democrats have historically felt a need to place limits on the number of businesses created. They totally disregard the inalienable rights given to us by God and continuously add more government to control the growth. They seem to think that the solution to big business is big government. That only results in big spending.
So why do so many democrats feel this way and why would they disregard our God given rights? Why they do it is for votes. They get endorsed by special interests and unions which in turn creates jobs for votes. The real problem is with the voters though because they often put their union or special interests ahead of their biblical views when voting.
If people voted their Christian values first, we would not have the problems listed above. Now you may be wondering what does free enterprise have to do with the bible. The answer is everything. Prosperity is God's plan for all of us.
So does that mean all republicans will support free enterprise and all democrats will favor more government regulations? Of course not, although that is a general rule. However, there are exceptions to every rule.
So how do voters know how to distinguish between the ones who will fight for free enterprise and the ones who will fight against it? The answer is really simple and I learned this a few months ago when I heard a great man of God, David Barton of Wall Builders, speak.
Take a look at a candidates stance on two issues. The first one is abortion. Right to life is another inalienable right given by God. That alone makes abortion wrong and it also goes against one of the Ten Commandments "Thou Shall not Kill the Innoncent."
The other issue to look at is the candidates stance on homosexual marriage. Genesis 2-24 states "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh." That very clearly means that God defines marriage as a covenant with him between a man and a woman.
The truth of the matter to begin with is that no matter how "politically incorrect" it is, homosexuality is a sin. Therefore, those who engage in it are living an unrighteous lifestyle. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. I Corinthians 6-9,10.
Prior to hearing Barton speak, I like so many other voters did not see a connection to these moral issues and economic issues. That is when he said that if a candidate can't get life and traditional family right, then he will not get anything else right either.
That is when it all made sense. If a politician is going to go and make up his own rules that go against God on life and family values, then why would anybody think he won't do that on economic issues?
For that reason if a candidate is pro-choice, he will likely be for gay marriage too. Then he will be against free enterprise in most cases. All of which go against God. Our constitution recognized that we are One nation under God. That meant that government was supposed to go with God and not against him.
The founding fathers recognized that God, and not man, decides what is right and wrong.
How is that a Democrat and a Republican thing? Well, we have a democratic president who endorses homosexual marriage and is pro choice. This is the same president who has created over 400 agencies and demonized big business. In Hawaii, we have a democratic governor who is the same way.
When you think about the politicians who support pro choice and gay marriage, the ones you think of are democrats. I have come to the conclusion that the word DEMOCRAT actually stands for Devil Enjoys Making Own Crazy Rules Any Time. Who is the last republican you saw fighting for these issues. I am sure there are some, but they are much harder to find.
While I won't say all republicans are good, they at least won't go against God's rules on policies. Democrats do it quite regularly though. Vote however you want but be prepared to live with the consequences if you vote union and other interests ahead of your biblical views.
