Elizabeth Warren


Elizabeth Warren recently commented on the Republican Party and Trump’s candidacy.

She said the Republican Party has welcomed every radical group into the party over the years. Now, they are taking over. They have the party by the throat. She believes the Republican Party will pay the price for its own extremism. Her conviction is the Republican Party has only itself to blame.

Re: Elizabeth Warren


I believe that her assessment is correct, but I'm not sure how much it will really hurt the Republican party. With Trumps numbers seeming to spiral out of control it scares me that he could actually win and eventually give the GOP much more control.
Honestly, I have seen Trump's earlier attempts to run for office, the last being Gov. of New York State where he backed out because the GOP was gonna allow somebody else run against him in the primary. Over many years he has 'talked' about running and then did nothing, so I have to wonder just how this will fall out.

Re: Elizabeth Warren


So am I scared, Retired, so am I.

I never thought he'd actually run, and when he did I never thought he would get this far. I wonder if he thought he would, or if he's actually as surprised as we are.

It seems like the bigger bully he is and the more vulgar he appears the more popular he becomes. I'm not sure what they like the most, his wealth or his mouth.

I think that what has shocked me the most is all the evangelicals and all the preachers jumping on the Trump bandwagon and openly campaigning for him against the "GOD HATING LIBERAL AGENDA". If you have been on social media much you know that just like in sports, wing-nut party loyalty is all that matters to most people and we probably shouldn't be surprised that it has even invaded our churches.

I guess they have decided to ignore the bible passage about money being the root of all evil, and letting Trumps money cover a multitude of his sins (and his mouth). They think he's their best hope against Hilary and the democrats. They're probably right about that.

 I am a Christian but nothing turns me against a church more than a preacher telling people who to vote for. That seems to be happening more and more often. Like Thomas Jefferson, I believe in a wall of separation between church and state. The government shouldn't tell people how or who to worship, and preachers and churches should preach morals from the pulpit and not politics.


But it's not just the preachers and church leaders fault.

From the Washington Post

"Some Trump supporters are threatening to leave their churches if their pastors preach against the Republican frontrunner."

It's looking like Trump will win the GOP nomination. But with his ego, his mouth, and his bullying tactics getting worse by the day, how much worse will he get if he does win the nomination.... and will the evangelicals actually still support him all the way through the general election no matter how bad he gets?
