THE 2ND GETTYSBURG ADDRESS – October 22, 2016

Posted by on October 24, 2016

Bear with me, readers.  You know my ‘contract’ with you is to lift, encourage, edify and challenge to personal and spiritual excellence.  I’m doing that here, just in a different manner.  I hate liars and those paid to promulgate their lies.  Thus, I’m taking time to assure my readers:  this is intended to lift and encourage you by getting truth to you.  I have a wonderful little Halloween-themed story to send you, either tonight or tomorrow morning.  I believe you’ll snicker, become thoughtful, maybe catch your eyes watering a little – and be blessed in the process. 

So.  Please read on, and if you wouldn’t mind, pass it along.  And thanks.

Dan

By now it’s old news:  the American popular media is in the Clintons’ pocket.  In other words, you won’t be getting the full content of candidate Trump’s Gettysburg speech from Saturday.  They give you only what they feel will hurt his candidacy and cause you to become disheartened by their cheap manipulation of – and extensive redaction of – the truth.  They’ve loudly accused Mr. Trump of not giving us specifics, to which he’s always said he would when the time was right.

The time must be right.  Last Saturday, he gave us all plenty.

This is a repost from this afternoon’s End of Day report from Gary Bauer’s Campaign for Working Families.  He puts nothing out that hasn’t been thoroughly vetted because he’s a Christian conservative and knows he’s as much in the major media’s crosshairs as anyone else daring to differ with The Left’s agenda.  This is the part they sort of left out by design.  What follows is copied directly from Bauer’s post of today.

Contract With The American Voter

Donald Trump traveled to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, this weekend to outline the agenda for his first 100 days in office. Trump called it his “Contract With The American Voter.” It is an incredible series of major reforms and initiatives.

Trump vowed to tackle corruption by advocating the following measures:

  • A constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress
  • A hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health)
  • Eliminate two existing regulations for every new one
  • A five year-ban on White House and congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service;
  • A lifetime ban on White House officials lobbying on behalf of foreign governments; and
  • A ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections.

Trump also called for new protections for American workers. He promised to:

  • Renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205
  • Withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
  • Label China a currency manipulator
  • Identify and end all foreign trading abuses that unfairly impact American workers
  • Lift the restrictions on the production of American energy reserves
  • Lift the roadblocks on infrastructure projects, like the Keystone Pipeline
  • Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.

Trump also promised immediate action to restore security and the rule of law. He vowed to:

  • Cancel every unconstitutional executive action issued by President Obama
  • Select a replacement for Justice Scalia from one of the 20 judges on his list
  • Cancel all federal funding to sanctuary cities
  • Begin to remove more than 2 million criminal illegal immigrants
  • Suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur.

Term limits. Reducing red tape. Ending Washington’s revolving door. Fair trade. Energy independence. Respect for the Constitution and the rule of law. Conservative judges. Common-sense immigration reform that puts our security first. That is an agenda that should excite conservative voters and unite Republicans! That is an agenda to make America great again. And it is a stark contrast compared to the radical left-wing policies we know Hillary Clinton will impose on America.

That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.”  ~~ Thomas Jefferson  “Declaration Of Independence”  — 1775

Think about it, all 43 million of you conservative Christians who let the bigmouthed media and some of your own party’s elite cow you into staying home, thereby guaranteeing their candidate – Barack Hussein Obama – the election.  You may deem businessman and entrepreneur Donald Trump distasteful, which is your right.  Yet lock in on this. 

You’re not voting for him; I’d be surprised if he puts up with more than one term.  He has a real mess to clean up!  You’re voting for your nation!

Do you really want what Hillary Clinton’s Socialist agenda with her as czarina will do?  Do you really want for us – you and I – to be the last generation who grew up relatively free and loving our country?  Do you really want to sit blankly listening to your kids and grandkids parroting what you and I once heard from the Soviets and East Germans?

Is that what you want?

If you thought Barack Obama was bad as President, wait until you get a load of him as Supreme Court Justice . . .  Maybe it’s appropriate this is all taking shape around Halloween.  When they get done ‘experimenting’, America will be unrecognizable, and the only treats available will be those they give themselves.

You are not voting for Donald Trump.  You are voting to take back your nation from those bent on erasing everything for which it stands!  No third party candidate has ever done anything but split votes.  Do NOT stay home, Christian!  Do NOT try to get cute and give way to all the ranting about write-insDonald Trump won’t be the first less-than-stellar man God’s used to get His point across.  And you do NOT want to stand accountable to your conservative kids and grands (and they DO exist) who one day will ask you why YOU didn’t have the guts to stand with people like Noah, Moses, Esther, Daniel or his three buds?  Courage never has been popular.

Conservative Christian friend, this is no game and you get no do-overs.  Make the wrong choice on Nov. 8th, and you won’t get another shot at it.  They’ll see to it.

These are my thoughts.  I’m doing my best as an American veteran, citizen, pastor, chaplain, mentor, writer, man, husband, dad and granddad to wake my generation up; to encourage you who are flagging in spirit to quit listening to the Left, their media mouthpieces and the entire corruption-septic Washington scene – including some in your own party.  I say again:  quit listening to them.

Start listening to your heart.

Dan
