The Biggest Lie in Politics

Adapted from the Foundation for Applied Conservative Leadership

“Good people are obligated to support the lesser of two evils.”

Is this true? Should we support the lesser of two evils? No, for four reasons.

4. The lesser of two evils is still evil.

3. It rewards bad behavior. We cannot achieve victory by rewarding politicians who vote against our principles.

2. It demoralizes our own people. “There is no difference between the parties.” Therefore, non-voting is on the rise.

Best Reason:

1. It simply isn’t true. In most cases, the alleged “lesser” evil actually is the “greater” evil because it is more of a danger to liberty and freedom.

If you find yourself, in your own estimation, not supporting a “good” candidate, but a “lesser evil,” you must ask yourself, “Is this lesser evil, really the lesser?”

It isn’t the devil with a pitchfork that you should fear, it’s the one who comes smiling, preaching in a suit and tie, telling you everything that you want to hear despite his past behavior. “No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” ~ 2 Cor 11:14

Which is more evil?

George W. Bush gave us

• Medicare Expansion
• Bailout
• Patriot Act
• No Child Left Behind
• Increased funding to Planned Parenthood.

This led to the loss of House and Senate GOP seats in 2006

Barack H. Obama gave us

• Medicaid Expansion
• Stimulus Bill
• Patriot Act
• Common Core
• Increased funding to Planned Parenthood.

Obama led to The GOP gaining seats. Insurgent candidates such as Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Ron Johnson, Nikki Haley and Marco Rubio beat establishment GOP candidates.

The greater evil gives us something to organize against. The lesser evil causes us to accept the status quo and as a consequence lose influence. Remember that once most politicians are elected – especially most Republicans – their goal is to do as little as possible, to take no controversial stands and offend no one, in order to get re-elected. Special interest groups represent voting blocks that politicians use to hold on to their power.

Electing Donald Trump in 2016 would be a giant step backwards for influence of Christian principles at the grassroots level. Imagine Trump with a Democrat Congress negotiating and making “deals.” Now imagine Hillary Clinton with a solid resistance and a growing number of freshman Republicans in Congress who represent conservative Christian values.

The Biggest Lie in Politics is designed to separate legislative session from election season causing voters to forget the results this has always produced in the past.

“To achieve victory, first you must seek it.” ~ Howard Phillips

Could not disagree more. Although Mr. Trump is a little rough around the edges, I believe he loves America and wants to help us regain our country. Lying Crooked Hillary would be in jail if she were you or me. How in good faith can you point your readers to the most corrupt person to run for office?
