Is the promise of conservative Supreme Court justices enough to vote for Trump?

Conservative Supreme Court

Many of the people I associate with have thrown in the towel.  Like past elections, frustrated, they have once again given up hope for a truly conservative President who respects freedom and an inspired Constitution.  Many have resigned themselves to vote for the lesser of two evils.  “Trump,” they say, “will nominate conservative Supreme Court Justices.”  This hope, that Trump will follow through on this ONE promise, appears to be the only reason a conservative could hold their nose and vote for a man whose word is his bond (LOL!).

Can this really be a ONE issue election?  Are we really in such dire straits that the only reason we will put a man in as the leader of the free world is that he promises conservative Supreme Court Justices?  Did we forget that the President of the United States can launch nuclear weapons?

Can Trump be trusted with this promise of conservative judges?  Maybe we should ask his first two wives?  Then again, we know that he can’t be trusted based on his own words.  It was Trump himself who bragged about the many women he slept with.  I can hear Trump asking now, “How many interns work at the White House?”  Do we really want to go there again?

How can we trust a recently converted Republican to choose conservative judges when that newly converted Republican gave money to his opponent’s campaign and many other Democrats just a few years ago?  When did we stop believing that actions speak louder than words?

Trump, throughout his campaign, begged people to, “Believe me!”  Never did he point to his actions as proof or reason to believe – only his words.  (Okay, he does offer that he is rich – which he brags is due to crony capitalism – buying off politicians.  Where are those promised tax records anyway?)  Over and over again, he begs us to take him at his word.  Many, without considering the actions of the man, give him the benefit of the doubt just for the asking.  Have we lost our collective minds?

The very moment Donald Trump called himself a Conservative Republican we entered the Twilight Zone.  A vote for Trump is a vote for Planned Parenthood, discrimination against religion, gay marriage and transgender bathroom rights.  Play Twilight Zone music in your head now and it will all make sense!  Do you really expect him to pick conservative Supreme Court Justices with these recently stated positions?

We trusted President G.W. Bush (way more conservative than Trump) to nominate a conservative judge and we got John Roberts, the deciding factor in delivering Obamacare and gay marriage – two rulings that have stomped on the Constitution.   To be clear, if Hillary or Trump win the Presidency, the Supreme Court is lost – maybe it is already lost…  The sooner we understand this; the sooner we can rally the conservative troops in a truly conservative party that will seek to protect the Constitution and return freedom to the American People.

No longer can we go along to get along.  The Republican Party, with its nomination of Donald Trump has joined the liberal ranks of the Democrats as they join the ranks of the Socialists.  While admittedly scary, this has created an opportunity for conservatives to reunite around merit, freedom, liberty and a Constitution currently hanging by a thread.

God gave us a conscience so that we could know good from evil.  Voting against your conscience is a bad habit we true conservatives must break.  There is no better time than the present to put your loyalty where your conscience leads you – that step alone is the first step to true freedom.
