…for Trump based on their conscience. Yes, admittedly clickbait, but, read below.
I’m not sure how those that believe in the 10 commandments can, in good conscience, vote for Trump.
Let’s look at the commandment “Thou shalt not bear false witness”
Let’s look at last night’s (2016/10/09) debate:
“I didn’t say sex tape”
Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 30, 2016
“Grab them by the p*ssy”
In the debate, when pressed, he said he did not ever act out what he said he’d done in the recently leaked tape, and that it was just ‘locker room’ talk. Personally, I think it’s more likely that he did do what he was saying, but taking him at his word, is locker room talk an excuse to lie?
He mentions Hillary Clinton proposes increasing refuges by 550% which will lead to ‘hundreds of thousands’ of new refugees.
While the 550% percent increase is true, proposing allowing 65,000 refugees in 2017, there is no additional allow statements made by Clinton, therefore, no ‘hundreds of thousands’.
“I don’t know Putin … I know nothing about Russia”
He continued to say that he couldn’t release taxes because he’s being audited
“Nothing prevents individuals from sharing their own tax information,” the IRS said in a statement. This has been pointed out to him many times, but he continues to state the lie that he can’t release them.
“ICE just endorsed me. They’ve never endorsed a presidential candidate.”
They did not endorse him. A union of immigration and customs officers voted to endorse Trump.
“… we are letting people into this country that are going to cause problems and crime like you’ve never seen”
Apprehensions at the Southwest border, a proxy for attempted crossings, have dropped by 79 percent from the year 2000, which was the peak. Pew Research Center reports more Mexicans left the U.S. than entered between 2009 and 2014.
“I was against the war in Iraq”
When asked if he supported the war in Iraq, he said on Howard Stern’s show, “Yeah, I guess so. I wish the first time it was done correctly.”
I could go on and on and on.
How about “Thou shalt not commit adultery”
I want to be VERY clear on this. While Bill Clinton was impeached in 1998, the Senate acquitted him… While he has had a questionable past when it comes to adultery… He’s not running for President. Does a person stand on their own merits? If you think so, then Hillary is not guilty of Bill’s crimes. If you think a person doesn’t stand on their own merits, then you have your own issues.
That said, Donald Trump has had confirmed mistresses, affairs, etc., and in fact has left previous wives and married the mistresses. This seems like an extremely large glass house that he’s attempting to throw stones from.
What about “Thou shalt not steal”?
He doesn’t pay taxes, as far as we can tell, and continues to claim he can’t provide proof until he’s done with his audits, which is 100% false, to the point that the IRS has said there is no issues with him releasing his tax documents. Is not paying taxes not theft? He talks of deficits, which have been largely caused by tax loopholes for the top 1%, but continues to not pay taxes (as far as we can see). Another glass house?
Therefore, as a member of the religious right, do you really feel, in good conscience, that you can vote for an individual that so blatantly flaunts the commandments of the bible?
I haven’t ever said to someone “don’t vote” even when they disagree with me, but, perhaps a write in vote for your ideal candidate would better serve your conscience.
