This past week, the despicable behavior of Democratic Senators and liberal protestors during the hearing to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court appalled me. The liberals/Democrats in the room disrespected the offices of the Senate and the Supreme Court. Also they rudely interrupted the proceedings. Finally, they could not find any evidence that disqualified Kavanaugh. If this is what they do when they are in the minority of control, I would hate to see them gain majority control. I hope this helps you help Republicans win elections in 2018 and beyond.
One of the reasons the people elected Donald Trump to be President was his promise to appoint righteous judges. He appointed judges that respect the U.S. Constitution, the separation of powers, and the original intent of our Founding Fathers. This group includes Judge Kavanaugh.
Restore civility and justice and help Republicans win elections
It took me a few dozen searches on three different search engines to find a reasonable article that clearly defined a few campaign techniques Republicans can use to increase their majorities in the House and the Senate in 2018. I was really trying to find a listing of issues and positions that would encourage conservatives to get out the vote and avoid increasing the political passions of liberals. I did not find such a reference. President Trump has a way of stirring up both groups.
Here are some things that should stir up conservatives and deflate those who wish to promote illegal and immoral activity. We should strive to conserve and hold on to that which is good.
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 (NIV)
“19 Do not quench the Spirit. 20 Do not treat prophecies with contempt21 but test them all; hold on to what is good, 22 reject every kind of evil.”
Unlawful Immigration / Illegal Immigration
First, Democratic Party leadership has pushed for open borders, ignoring illegal immigration when they are in power. Also they push to legalize criminal trespassers and invaders. They want to grant citizenship to millions of illegal aliens. Republicans need to point out that if Democrats gain control in Congress, even more illegal aliens will flood across the border. Conservatives respect the rule of law. They should push for more funding to secure our borders before granting the right to work and educate here without the right to citizenship. Immigration should be handled with justice and compassion.
Gun Control in line with the Second Amendment
Second, Democratic Party leaders believe in expanding restrictions on gun ownership and sales. While they say it is intended to improve public safety, research has shown it normally makes places less safe. Cities like Chicago and Baltimore have been run by Democrats for years and have very restrictive gun laws, but remain high crime areas. One reason is because law abiding citizens cannot defend themselves or others against criminals with guns. Crime rates go down when responsible gun ownership and concealed carry permits go up. Spending government money to confiscate or buy guns from law abiding citizens is a waste of money and resources. They would be better off with qualifying and paying part time deputies to patrol high-crime areas in those cities. Also, Republicans should promote the enforcement of existing laws to ensure background checks are done to prevent criminals and those with mental illnesses from easily purchasing guns.
Third, Republicans passed an historic tax cut in 2017 that reduced personal income taxes and corporate tax expenses. This led to more capital available to reinvest in growing the economy. Democratic Party leaders want to increase taxes and continue to spend more than the government receives in taxes. Republicans need to promote a balanced budget approach that maintains military might and reduces wasteful discretionary spending. Our grandchildren should not have to pay for our indulgences. We should not pass our debts on to future generations.
Fourth, if Democrats gain control in Congress, they will pursue impeachment on the President and White House officials despite the lack of any evidence they have committed crimes while in the White House. This would be the lame investigation of Russian collusion with the Trump campaign on steroids. No evidence, but a long investigation and waste of taxpayer money. Also, evidence shows the ones who were in collusion with the Russians include Hillary Clinton campaign and liberal deep state actors in the FBI and Department of Justice. Republicans should push for proper legal investigations that follow the evidence, not political machinations.
Micah 6:7-9 (CEV)
“The Lord God has told us
what is right
and what he demands:
“See that justice is done,
let mercy be your first concern,
and humbly obey your God.””
Finally, if you have some other good ideas to help Republicans win elections, please let me know.
