Can you feel the magic?
Black magic, I mean.
Can you taste the thick artificial flavoring? Are you choking on the overly and overtly manufactured “excitement”?
As in: The most legit items on the menu are Donald Trump’s mood and hair.
Can you hear the controlled/contrived political puppet show predictably shifting into its standard seasonal gear en route to taking us to the same place that it always does?
More importantly, can you smell the fear of truth permeating its participants?
If so, you are clearly prepped and ready for liftoff. You are ready for the next installment of the controlled, contrived political puppet show known ’round these parts nowadays as “a Republican presidential debate”.
As we await tomorrow’s glorious installment of the purposefully never-ending saga of “Pagan Political Right vs. Pagan Political Left” puppet show theater, it seemed like a good time to run down a short list of very telling positions that all of the Statists participating in tomorrow’s grand event will likely agree upon.
Here we go:
- They will all likely agree that State-run children’s “education” is a good thing and that it needs to be “strengthened”. Should the subject of children’s education come up, each and every Republican Statist on the stage will address the topic based on the assumption that the State (be it on a national or local level) should be managing the mind-sculpting of our children, rather than repudiating State-run children’s “education” at any level as an affront to God that cannot be tolerated anywhere in His creation. (See: Statism 101: State-run “education” makes a State-dependent population.)
- They will all likely agree that the overtly Marxist/Socialist State-dependence-generating wealth redistribution program known as Social Security is a good thing and that it too needs to be “strengthened”. US confiscation and redistribution of wealth so that The State might better “take care of” (and thus make more dependent) the average American citizen is now a non-negotiable pillar of modern American Pagan “conservatism”. (See: How’s that Pagan “conservatism” workin’ out for ya, Christian?)
- They will all likely agree that we need to maintain a gigantic military engaged in numerous, large scale overseas adventures…even though we are supposedly “broke”. The same “conservatives” who pretend to care about budget deficits and the mountains of debt that we’ve already buried our own children and grandchildren under do not hesitate to spend wealth that we simply do not have in order to feed a gigantic military industrial complex and pursue perpetual war overseas. Perhaps Rand Paul will be an exception here, which would be great, but listen closely for the details in what even he has to say on this. It’s nearly impossible to make a serious run at the Republican nomination while clearly tackling the rank Statism that currently defines the party’s core. (See: Problem>Reaction>Solution – Why we will beg to have our freedoms taken away and go to war forever.)

- They will all likely agree that “traditional marriage” should be “respected” and/or “honored” in some vague, subjectively defined manner…while refusing to take a clear stand on the Word of God as the basis upon which marriage is to be understood, defined, and pursued anywhere in God’s creation, including America (yes, this includes the repudiation of “no fault divorce”. Pay particularly close attention to Statists like Mike Huckabee and Ben Carson, who routinely make reference to their personal preferences,personal faith, and “heartfelt”personal beliefs on this, that, or the other thing, including marriage, all while refusing to make the Word of God the explicit standard by which they would see marriage objectively defined and protected by civil government in America.
- They will all
likelydefinitely agree that a satanic approach to “religious liberty” – by which Satanism and Islam are “legally protected” – is a good thing. This is foundational to the religion of Statism. In the wake of the Kim Davis/”Gay Marriage” drama, the fact of Mrs. Davis’ initial clear stand on the Word and authority of God as the basis for refusing to “legalize” that which God has plainly contemned as lawless, Republican Statists will unanimously aim to conflate Davis’ initial Christ-centered position with a more vague appeal to “religious liberty”, “religious freedom”, and the “right to conscience”. In this, all Republican Statists will ironically use very Christian-sounding appeals to “religious liberty” in order to preserve the right to, among other things, freely practice Satanism and openly worship Satan in America. (See: Why do we allow the open practice of Islam, witchcraft, and Satanism in America?)
We covered this subject in some detail in this week’s Fire Breathing Christian Podcast, which can be heard here.
Could one or more points in this list be proven wrong? Could one or more Republican candidates stand on one of these issues in a manner that is boldly and clearly at odds with what is predicted here?
I sure hope so!
I pray for that regularly.
And I hope that you do, too.
That said, let’s just watch and see…and listen…
