What do you know? Hannity, Ingraham and Coulter were right: Mitt Romney really is a conservative – April Fools. If that’s what you believed, well, the joke’s on you. And if that’s what Sen. John McCain thinks, I can promise you he won’t be laughing in November.
Don’t worry; I’m not going to spend my whole article proving my point – one of Romney’s lead advisers just did that for me.
Doug Kmiec was the guy Romney chose to co-chair his “Committee for the Courts and Constitution.” That’s who would help pick the Supreme Court judges had Romney won the White House. We all know how important the Supreme Court is; you have to really trust someone to be like-minded to chair a vital committee like that. And now, the guy Romney most trusted to chair this critical committee for judicial selection has decided to join the campaign of … Barack Obama.
As the Washington Post reported, if your first choice doesn’t win, well, go with the one you like second best. Hey, maybe Barack Obama is a conservative, too! Maybe I should tell the conservative pundits! No, they won’t join; many of them are already campaigning for Hillary.
Just what in the world is going on? Has every day become April Fools?
Kind of like last week’s headlines that read like the alien report in the National Enquirer: “Transgender Man Says He’s Pregnant,” (that was ABC) and “Emergency C-section at 8 ½ months delivers ‘non-person.’” How about we stay consistent with the truth? If you never refer to a woman as a “man,” no matter what hormones she take or clothes she wears, you never have to explain what happened when she becomes pregnant. And when a child is born just before her scheduled C-section, you won’t have to call her a “non-person” to try and stay consistent with the pro-abortion lobby. Nor do you have to let the baby’s killer walk free.
Here’s another idea, in addition to staying consistent with the truth, how about we stay consistent with our pro-life principles? Just as there is a void of truth in the news, there is a void of real, discerning, trustworthy leadership in the pro-family movement, and I for one am sick of it.
But I know that just because we are feeling alone doesn’t mean we are. Elijah felt that way too when he was up against Jezebel, the Hillary of his day. There were 7,000 who had not bowed the knee to Baal that he didn’t know about because they were hiding out in caves.
I think that’s still the case today, so I’m taking out an ad and I’m posting it on caves all across town.
WANTED: Proven leaders who did not support a candidate of compromise or sit on their hands when they could have used their voice at a critical moment in history. If you have not bowed to political expedience or “practical” politics, come out, come out wherever you are.
I’m not listing the leaders who’ve failed us. We know who they are, and I’m still hoping they will follow Paul Weyrich’s lead and repent. But if they don’t, I believe they will become irrelevant no matter how big their names are, or how large their organizations.
I believe God is giving birth to a new conservative movement – those who seek God first so that “all the rest can be added” (Matthew 6:33). Joshuas and Calebs who would rather “take the land” than hear about the “giant reports.” If you are the kind of leader described in the ad above, who can actually envision what “victory” looks like, I’d like to hear from you.
But victory begins with humility and real change with repentance. That is where we must begin. If you love God more than a “seat at the table,” I’d like you to join me in praying for our nation and the pro-family movement through the month of April. Pray and then send me any pro-active ideas you have to take and occupy the land our like-minded Founding Fathers fought and died for.
But to get where we need to go, first and foremost, we need the Supreme Court. That means we need a president we can trust to select judges consistent with our values – not Barack Obama’s. The first indication of the kind of judges a candidate will select is whom he selects for his advisers (that rules out Mitt Romney), and the next indication of who’ll he put on the court is whom he selects as his vice president.
