Homeschoolers think the God-given right to raise their children in the Lord's nurture and admonition is secure. Yet if Hillary Clinton is elected, she will nominate at least one Supreme Court justice. And even a Republican-led Senate will confirm Clinton's nominee, maybe with token resistance to please the Christian establishment's donor base.
Democrats are humanistic and power-hungry; they play to win. For years now they have stacked the federal courts with judges who disregard state and federal constitutions. They get away with it because they are patient and discreet about it, they convince people (including Christians) that their decisions are irreligious, and nobody dares impeach and convict them – even though there is precedent for such removal and the House and Senate have the authority and justification for doing so. Democrats do not hesitate to forcefully assert what it is they think law should be (the opposite of Christianity). I admire Democrats, because unlike Christian leaders, they believe in taking dominion.
Under a scenario where Clinton wins the presidency and thereafter adds a justice to the bench, homeschooling will either be made more difficult or it will be outlawed. And I am not exaggerating. Liberals will overturn what has already been stated judicially and assert that there is no God-given right to home educate. And liberals will uphold any administrative law that funnels homeschool children to civil government schools. Liberals do not care about the ramifications, only your child's allegiance. Besides, they know that any decision they make forcing homeschool children into civil government schools will NOT be met with Christian disregard and disobedience; they know most Christian preachers are legal positivists and already accept Christian children attending civil government schools; they know that education breeds culture and culture breeds politics. The permanent Democratic victory is only so far away as a couple million homeschool children.

I know that here in central Virginia many homeschool families are in the Never Trump camp. But they have six weeks to realize that Virginia could be the state that determines who wins the general election. And in that regard central Virginia could be the area that determines whether Virginia goes to Trump, and therefore whether we continue our slow revival through homeschool-led Christian discipleship.
