Prominent Never-Trumper explains why he is voting for Trump/Pence in November

Around this time, the media loves to trumpet stories about prominent “Republicans” who have become disenchanted with the Republican nominee for president. But I think that Trump has done more than enough to ensure that exactly the opposite happens. Not only will he be seeing a lot of votes from former Never-Trumpers, he’ll be seeing a lot more votes from American-born blacks.

Let’s start with this column written by prominent pro-life debater Marc Newman.

He writes:

In 2016 I couldn’t vote for Donald Trump. I wrote about it. When people asked me about Trump vs. Clinton I responded, “You can’t trust either one of them.” When Trump claimed a pro-life platform, I didn’t believe he’d follow through.

[…]Forced now to reconsider, my conclusion is that Trump has been the most pro-life president in my lifetime – including Ronald Reagan, who said many of the right things but accomplished relatively little. In virtually every area – both in word and deed – Trump has delivered for his pro-life constituents and, by extension, to innumerable innocent human beings in the womb who otherwise would have died. Trump’s policy position has been to oppose legislation that attempts to advance abortion. Vice-President Mike Pence recently visited a pregnancy help clinic and, in 2019, addressed the March for Life. In 2020, Trump became the first president in U.S. history to address the March for Life – not via video, but in person. Trump’s administration stood against the United Nation’s move to promote abortion.

Though Trump did not completely defund Planned Parenthood, he allowed states to remove $60 million in Title X funding and Planned Parenthood’s access to Medicaid money. While this figure represents only about 10% of the annual federal funding for the world’s most notorious member of the abortion industry, given the chance, I believe Trump would entirely defund Planned Parenthood. He simply needs a Republican House and enough brave Republican senators to forward the bill to his desk.

Previously, I blogged about how Susan B. Anthony List – a powerful pro-life advocacy group – had made a list of Trump’s pro-life actions. I can’t quote it here, it’s too long!

This one was my favorite, though:

In May 2019, the Trump administration finalized new regulations to strengthen enforcement of federal laws protecting the conscience rights of health care workers who do not want to participate in abortion. The regulations clarify what recourse is available to victims of discrimination under the law and what penalties the HHS Office of Civil Rights may enforce for violations. Additionally, in January 2018, the Department of Health & Human Services announced the creation of the Conscience and Religious Freedom Division within the Office for Civil Rights. This new office works to protect health care professionals who do not want to participate in abortion. In May, 2019, HHS issued a proposed rule amending Obama-era regulations, clarifying that Section 1557 shall not force a recipient of federal funding to provide or pay for an abortion. It shall also be consistent with the First Amendment and with pro-life provisions, conscience provisions and religious liberty protections in current law.

I can’t stand secular leftist fascists coercing people of conscience.

That’s not the only reason to vote for Trump/Pence in November, though. My favorite theologian Dr. Wayne Grudem had an article at Townhall, where he was explaining how he was going to vote for Trump/Pence in November, strictly on policy achievements.

He writes:

A few months ago, while the impeachment trial was going on, a younger faculty colleague asked me at lunch, “What would Trump have to do to make you stop supporting him?” My response was something like this: “I would stop supporting him if he began to favor higher taxes, more government regulation, a weaker military, open borders, judges who believed in a “living Constitution,” extended abortion rights, restrictions on freedom of religion, hostility toward Israel…” I didn’t finish the list because he said, “Okay, the question for you is policies. I get it.”

[…]The question now facing the nation is not, “Does Donald Trump have an exemplary moral character?” or,  “Does Donald Trump have flaws?” or even, “Do I like Donald Trump?” The question is, “Which of two package deals is better for the nation?”

(a) Donald Trump and Republican policies or

(b) Joe Biden and Democratic policies?

There are no other choices. The nation will either have the option (a) or option (b) as a whole package for at least the next four years, and probably longer. If I withhold support from Trump, that makes it easier for Biden to win, and thereby for Democratic policies to bring (in my opinion) great destructiveness to the nation (more specifics below.)

Yeah, and the issue for any thinking human being is the policies – specifically, the policies of the only two live options for President fo the United States. Are Trump/Pence policies good for Christians and conservatives to achieve their goals? And do they promote the public good, and protect the rights of minorities from the tyranny of the majority?

Americans are being distracted by the mainstream news media to focus on whether they like Trump/Pence more than Biden/Harris. Many Americans rely on TV for their news, and they aren’t looking at policies or achievements or demonstrated abilities. This is especially true of voters who rely more on impressions, appearances, spritual mysticism and emotions – low-information voters. But elections are not popularity contests. America is the guardian of freedom for the whole world – we can’t afford to elect someone who pushes bad policies that don’t achieve results.

I don’t see how anyone could deny that the policies of Trump/Pence have been good, and that the policies of Biden/Harris would be disastrous for conservatives, Christians and America.

  1. For those who think Biden and Harris will support the average people, they are dead wrong.

    Harris jailed many, many people for just possessing a joint while she herself partook. As for Biden, he was the same administration that as candidates said they would hold the big banks accountable for the subprime meltdown and then got in bed with them once elected.

    Don’t even get me started on Harris calling Biden a racist and rapist, both of which he probably is, but now he’s the best thing since hot running water. As for Harris, a quota hire sleeping her way to the top with married men? Seriously? That’s the best the Fascicrats have to offer?

  2. I’ve been trying to make these same arguments with a few never-Trump Christian conservatives for some time. I referred them to Grudem’s piece. Some think they have some sort of moral directive simply because Trump was such a philanderer and was accused of shady business practices (about which I’ve never seen any proven details), his inarticulate ways and his tweets. It saddens me that they can’t see that a simple vote for his policies is all that’s required and doing so is the Christian move.

    I am encouraged by something I recently heard, though I don’t recall by whom. But it was said by whomever that it’s not unheard of to learn of someone who didn’t vote for Trump in 2016 but will in 2020, while hearing of no one who voted for him in 2016 deciding not vote for him again. In my case, I certainly haven’t heard of a Trump supporter who won’t continue to support him.

  3. I don’t see it either WK, but I sure hear their denials all the time, from fellow prolife church brethren. They never give reasons, but just sneers, such as “hah, hah, why don’t you move to Fl or Tx if you don’t like our governor and her orders.” Supposedly I am going to not vote for Trump because I am supposed to be ashamed of who I am because I am like those Fl or Tx creatures? A sneer is their argument, that’s why you can’t understand them WK. They think that they ARE supporting biblical morality by who they hate, so they see no problem with not voting Trump. They FEEL like they are helping Satan, were they to vote for him. I agree with them not voting for him though, because in their current maturity and faith level, voting for him would be a sinful violation of their conscience. It’s a problem that my pastor isn’t helping form their minds better. Treats their emotionalism with too much politeness.

  4. Is it too late for the EPA to start saving human lives by restricting abortions to two exceptions: rape and incest? After all, everyone’s original Environmental Protection Agent was their mother’s womb. Helping to save over 95% of innocent lives with these 2 exceptions would be better than saving none.
