We are 27 days from either Armageddon or restoration of our country. That is no exaggeration. If the Democrats win, we all lose. If the Republicans win, America can survive and thrive.
Whether we win or lose is up to us and everyone we know, so I beg you to do your part. Register, vote and remind all your friends to do so by simply pressing the share button on your Facebook page.
It is imperative that we understand the dramatic differences in the philosophies of the two parties. I will take a separate plank from the platform of the Republican Party and compare it to the Democratic Party platform every day until the election so that you will be informed and I expect that you will be alarmed.

On Recognizing God in Government.
The Democratic Platform includes no direct reference to God. The Democrat platforms speak frequently of rights, but only as they come from government, never as coming first from God. They give lip service to religion—that “our lives are made vastly stronger and richer by faith in many forms and the countless acts of justice, mercy, and tolerance it inspires.” But there is no major exception –the Democrats only support a “progressive vision of religious freedom” that “rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate” on LGBT issues – such as the millions of Christians who support natural marriage.
The Republican Platform affirms that God is central to American government, society and our way of life, saying: “every time we sing, ‘God Bless America,’ we are asking for help. We ask for divine help that our country can fulfill its promise.” The Platform affirms that the Declaration of Independence sets forth: “That God bestows certain inalienable rights on every individual, thus producing human equality; that government exists first and foremost to protect those inalienable rights; that man-made law must be consistent with God-given, natural rights; and that if God-given, natural, inalienable rights come in conflict with government, court, or human-granted rights, God-given, natural, inalienable rights always prevail.” As Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote in his Letter from Birmingham Jail, the Republican platform affirms that God, not the government, is the final authority, even above human laws, and sets the highest law we must follow. In light of this fact, Republicans “support the public display of the Ten Commandments as a reflection of our history and our country’s Judeo-Christian heritage.
