    Question is, when Jeb Bush steps up to the microphone, will he actually have something to say? Or will he just do like Obama/Hillary and say whatever’s needed to win an election?

    He’s speaking at Liberty U. aka right-wingnut welfare finishing school. They are a fairly uncritical bunch. As long as the speaker parrots all the far right wing conservative Christian talking points, they will eat it up.

    Anything any speaker says there will not make any difference… Just the same ole, same ole suggestions or promises, with no forthcoming positive results.

    I vote because it is my responsibility, and as a woman, I understand this took some doing to be permitted this torch, but I would not hesitate to not vote should I find all candidates corrupt, ‘dishonest’ in ways unseemly, or too easily swayed for the purpose of winning.
    As it says, Render unto Caesar.
    That said, one reason I will not vote for Jeb Bush is because he is Roman Catholic. Prejudice? Not at all. My Conscience cannot vote for one plowing ox and ass yoked together. The influence of the doctrine he worships within conflicts with the impartial post required of leadership, and as a female … 🙁

    As it is said: then it is better not to marry (a religion is as much a life choice of marriage for the layman as it is for the clergy).

    *I will only vote for a “Catholic” if the candidate breaks from the Roman Catholic Church and is FREE from the dogmatic state of mind, and is not indoctrinated within SYSTEM OF BELIEF that conflicts with his ability to make rational and reasonable decisions for the people he has promised to protect and serve. The days of old favoritism are coming to an end. *Someone please tell that to the RCC and those like it 😉

    Peace

    I will not vote for any of them because I am a theocrat, or supporter of God’s rule over man instead of man over man. I pay Caesar’s things to Caesar (pay my taxes and obey man’s rules as long as they do not conflict with God’s laws).

    But, most importantly, I will pay God’s things to God, my worship to him, and my allegiance to his kingdom or heavenly government (Daniel 2:44; John 4:17). But why? That government will not rule over man with corruption, injustice, selfishness or greed at all (Isaiah 11:1-9), and it will bring the greatest blessings to people in all nations (Revelation 21:3,4). That definitely works for me!

    Just another instance of the Harlot and the Beast making buddy-buddy with each other… It doesn’t matter “what” religion the candidates are. Mostly they’re just paying lip service to please the voters. “Oh, look, I’m a religious man…” It makes no difference anyway…
