There are no positive outcomes, no matter who wins. This election truly proves we are broken. I cannot believe that Christians would support Trump, but on the other hand, it doesn't take a Christian to be president. It is possible for a Christian to be a worse president than an atheist. The office is not a church office. God can use anyone saved or Trump, smart or Trump, stately or Trumply to do his business.

Have you guys seen these YouTube and TV shows, where people are asked questions about politicians and political leaders? The questions are asked on the campuses of some of the most prestigious universities. The kids today are not taught, nor are they retaining, proper US government history, the Constitution, or current events. But they sure as heck know who Snooky is.

Yup, nowhere does it say a person must be in a particular sect of Christianity to be the leader. You do have to be natural born, however. Also, neither of the two primary parties has a monopoly on religion.

True. But, a wannabe leader ought not to claim to be a Christian during a campaign when they haven't really done so in the past, while also saying they have never, nor do they currently, ask for forgiveness.

Random questions:
If Trump is able to get enough delegates to secure the Republication nomination, does that set the stage for a third party second coming of Jesse Ventura?

Will Falwell Jr. ever apologize? Will it come out Liberty U benefited financially from his endorsement of Trump.

If Trump gets the nomination, what will Cruz do?

I have been hearing unless people vote for Sanders, a vote for Hillary is a vote for Trump,

There is a reason why Falwell Jr is in the position he is and is not the pastor of TRBC. He is a lawyer. I wouldn't put too much stock in anything he recommends.
