"I've never read/seen a politician MORE consistently conservative, MORE consistently wise, MORE consistently reasonable, MORE consistently honorable, in speech, writing, and Constitutional Integrity then Tom Hoefling...
AND you're voting for who instead? Brethren, you're NOT making any sense!"

The whole idea of "the movement" is of socialist origin. It's tied into the notion that history is moving toward some utopian humanistic ideal, even if it is doing so in fits and starts.
This isn't what the Bible teaches. In fact, history is moving toward a day in which godless humanistic notions will lead the whole world to the very brink of utter annihilation. Only the Second Coming of Christ will prevent complete destruction.
In the meantime, God has left Christians, filled with the Holy Spirit, in the world as a restraining influence, as the salt and the light, to act as a preventative against corruption, and to enlighten the darkness.
He also long ago instituted human government - as frail and untrustworthy as it is - as a restraining influence, to bear the sword and punish evildoers.
So, in other words, the only movement we should be pushing is the movement of sinners back to God, back to the Truth, and back to moral principles of right, in terms of whatever power we might possess to affect the course of government.
And then, once folks have moved back to God and the principles of righteousness and decent self-government, they need to stop moving, and stand fast, as the body of Christ, and as a body of good citizens, come what may, confident that God is the Sovereign Ruler of All Things, and that our ultimate victory over the forces of darkness and evil is absolutely sure.
But if we refuse?
Well, the Lord talked about that too....
"Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men."
-- Matthew 5:13
Let's make America good again
Not just with our words
Not just with our pens
But with true deeds
Let us, as real Americans should
Act, as we once did
As decent, upright, righteous men
For our national sins
Let us truly mourn
And in repentance once again
Let us guard the innocent
With all our might
With all our laws
To serve and protect
Both the born
And the unborn
Let us bow our hearts before our God
And never bow to any other
As we stand in faith
Side by side
With our patriot brothers
As we labor together
As one people
In service to all freedom-lovers
In goodness is your greatness found
In goodness will God's grace abound
And to your children peace redound

There are a couple of ways to become a casualty in war.
One way is to be killed. Since you're reading this, we'll put aside the idea that you've died in the political fight for the survival of our free republic.
Another way to become a casualty is to be wounded. Well, looking around these days I see a whole lot of people who have been wounded in the political contests of recent years and decades. Frankly, it's brutal out there. If you know folks like that, do all you can to help them get healed up and back in the fight. We desperately need them.
Another way to become a casualty is to be captured. If you find yourself in the camp, or should I say the prison camp, of those who are destroying American constitutional self-government in liberty, escape. Come back over to the right side where you belong.
The last way is to go missing. Tens of millions of professing Christians don't even bother to register to vote, much less exercise the sacred citizen franchise which is the gift of Almighty God, and of our staunch liberty-loving forebears.
According to Gallup, three-quarters of the American people still profess to be Christians. If even one-third of that group would simply stop compromising what they say they believe for the corrupt Republicans and Democrats, and show up to vote for me, I would win the presidency. And then, together, we could begin the real work of securing justice, and respect for innocent human life, and liberty, and the rule of law, and prosperity, to ourselves and our posterity.
"As a political science professor and a tenured pro-life activist, people often ask me who I'm voting for and why. I am aware about the margin of red vs. blue in Texas and believe that this state will go red in spite of my protest, but I am responsible for exercising my civic duty according to my well-formed Catholic conscience.
Hillary Clinton is an unacceptable candidate just like Barack Obama was because of abortion and religious freedom. However, I believe Donald Trump will do far more damage in spite of hopeful Supreme Court appointments by suggesting that an immoral candidate is acceptable to hold the highest office in the land. If anything showed us the power of the church, it's how we united against the anti-religious freedom policies of the HHS mandate. There's nothing more dangerous than trusting somebody lacking basic principles to protect our dearest principles.
The way I can make it very clear the values I hold dearest, the right to life and worship, and how I find Donald Trump antithetical to those values is to vote for a man of integrity that exemplifies these values. That man is Thomas Hoefling. I'm proud to support him this election."
The Tom Roten Morning Show -- Wednesday, Sept. 28
Sixty million innocents have been murdered in this country since 1973 under the color of "law," even though the supreme law of God, and the supreme law of our land, both absolutely require equal protection before the law for every single innocent person.
Both Clinton and Trump have made it absolutely clear that they will do absolutely nothing to prevent the murder of the next sixty million helpless innocents.
That should be all that any Christian in America needs to know to absolutely prevent them from giving one ounce of political support to either of them.
If you really want to restore representative self-government, there's only one first step to doing that: Start voting for who actually represents you, and the actual obligations of the oath of office, while leaving the results to God.

Maybe Republican fear-mongering on judges would have some salience if the Republicans had shown any propensity at all to pick judges who had any decent notion of what the Constitution says and means, and what their oaths require.
After all, Republican-picked judges have controlled the Supreme Court for a whole generation now. Look at what the courts have done in the last half-century, and remember who is responsible for most of it. And that includes Roe vs. Wade, which was decided by a heavily GOP-appointed court.
And this idea that we're only "one judge away from losing our rights" is toxic. To what ever degree there is any truth to it it is solely because virtually the entire Republican Party has surrendered constitutional republican self-government in favor of the setting up of a judicial oligarchy. They show absolutely no interest in providing any necessary check or balance on the courts, as their oaths of office require.
The courts were supposed to be the weakest branch, with no "force or will," as Hamilton put it in the Federalist. They can do absolutely NOTHING that the executive branch, and the legislative branch, and the people, don't allow. NOTHING.
What's it going to take to wake up the people to the fact that the courts have absolutely no legitimate power to violate the laws of nature and nature's God or the Constitution of the United States?
The Democrat/Republican Uniparty cartel has utterly rigged your elections against you, especially at the federal - and particularly the presidential - level.
Believe me. We have spent many years now trying to un-rig it on your behalf. We know the practical facts of the matter intimately.
But today I'm going to tell you exactly how you can - like Alexander solving the riddle presented by the Gordian Knot - restore government of the people, by the people, and for the people, and overthrow the corrupt money, media, and political party-based lock on power, in one swift stroke.
All you have to do to undo the rigged process is to write my name in for president on your ballot. That's it.
By that one act you will have completely undone the multitude of burdensome statutes and arbitrary, ridiculous rules that keep the citizens of this country from real access to their own elections.
It's really not that hard to write, or to spell.
Do this, and we CAN win.
And then the real work of restoring this constitutional republic, for the sake of our children and grandchildren, can begin in earnest.

I am a moderate counter-revolutionary.
It is my opponents who are all radicals and revolutionaries.
They all forward public policies that assure the continuation of the radically immoral, radically unconstitutional practice of human abortion.
They all forward radical public policies that assure the continued destruction of the essential civil institution of marriage and the natural family.
They all forward radical public policies that accept the coup d'etat against constitutional, republican self-government represented by the destructive fallacy of judicial supremacy.
They all forward radical public policies that ignore the Enumerated Powers and continue the unconstitutional socialist programs that are swiftly bankrupting our nation.
It's radical to slaughter babies.
It's radical to destroy, or accept the destruction of, the concept of God-given, unalienable, intrinsic, equal, individual rights.
It's radical to destroy, or to accept, the destruction of, the God-created, God-defined institution of marriage and the natural family.
It's radical to continue to support, or to supinely accept, a revolutionary system that amounts to judicial oligarchy.
It's radical to support the continued revolutionary overturning of limited constitutional government and the furtherance of unlimited socialistic government.
I'm the only candidate available to vote for in the November 8th presidential contest with the vision, and the commitment, and the actual constitutional, practical plan, to restore equal protection to the innocents, and thereby to restore actual governmental respect for the original cornerstone principles of the Declaration of Independence, our national charter.
I'm the only candidate available to vote for in the November 8th presidential contest with the vision, and the commitment, and the actual constitutional, practical plan, to restore civil protections to the essential institution of one man-one woman marriage and the natural family.
I'm the only candidate available to vote for in the November 8th presidential contest with the vision, and the commitment, and the actual constitutional, practical plan, to put judges back into their constitutional box where they belong.
I'm the only candidate available to vote for in the November 8th presidential contest with the vision, and the commitment, and the actual constitutional, practical plan, to restore limited, constitutional government, and to shut down every part of this government that is outside of its legitimate constitutional power and authority, before our nation becomes insolvent, and we all are forced to experience an economic nightmare beyond our worst imaginations.
The American Revolution was a revolution to civilly-protect God-given individual rights, to establish justice, to limit the powers of the various branches of government, to establish checks and balances against those who would attempt to usurp or abuse power, to secure the Blessings of Liberty to our Posterity, to establish and maintain a system of limited, constitutional government.
Stop supporting those who are in revolt against all of the above.
Nothing will change until you do so.
America cannot be saved unless you do so.
Our national wealth, our national security, and our national greatness are all entirely dependent on the grace and the blessing of Almighty God.
Donald J. Trump, just the other day, closed a speech in Florida with the exclamation that he is going to make America rich again, that he is going to make America secure again, and that he is going to make America great again.
Three things that he cannot assure, especially in light of the fact that we continue to lawlessly slaughter thousands of innocents in this country each and every day, under the color of "law," and that Trump has emphatically declared that he will do absolutely nothing to change that.
He says the current situation is "the law," in spite of the fact that the supreme law of our land, the Constitution, explicitly and imperatively DEMANDS equal protection for the right to life of EVERY PERSON.
Of course, Trump knows absolutely nothing about the Constitution or the law. He thinks judges "sign bills."
Every single individual, and our own small deeds - for good or ill - truly matter, because it is upon the sum of small things that nations rise, or thrive, or die.
God rules and reigns over all. That knowledge makes all the turmoil we see around us seem rather trivial by comparison.
My reading of history is that when a people descends to the state of moral corruption in which they are willing to support what they openly admit is evil, based on the abject fear of some supposedly "greater" evil, God tends to give that people over to the power of their feared "greater" evil, and to the power of their assumed "lesser" evil as well. The 1932 German election is the classic example. It was considered to be a "lesser of three evils" election between the corrupt, weak, aged Field Marshall Hindenburg, Hitler, and a communist. They chose the "lesser evil," Hindenburg. Within a month the weakling Hindenburg had handed power over the Hitler and the Nazi Party. They ruled the country with an iron fist for more than a decade, until millions were dead, and the nation, along with most of Europe, was laid waste. Then a large portion of the country was given over to the communists for a generation. This is what happens when a people abandons God, and moral principle, and fails to raise up and empower decent principled leaders. Tyranny can only rise when there is a moral vacuum of true leadership in politics.
Exchanges with Trump supporters quickly bring a number of things into high relief.
Some of those things are:
Their loss of any reference to principle. Their moral compass has somehow lost its ability to find True North.
Their notable loss of any ability to discern the moral difference between pragmatic/utilitarian choices based on perceived political expedience and choices based on principle.
Their open scorn for any mention of the demands of conscience.
Their open scorn, and even vitriolic hatred, for anyone who acts on conscience rather than on perceived political expedience.
Unsurprising, since the Trump GOP booed conscience at their convention in Cleveland.
The Democrats boo God.
The Republicans boo conscience.
These are the moral depths to which these "two" ruling parties have descended.
And folks wonder why the country is in a mess?
What does it profit you to "stop Hillary" only to elect one of her most crass, unprincipled, liberal friends and financial backers?
The problem with pragmatism is not that it is wrong to give consideration to the likely practical results of a given action. The problem with pragmatism is that it is humanistic, and therefore short-sighted to the point of blindness, leaving out God and His infinite knowledge, understanding, and perspective, and truth, and principle, and morality, and our eternal standing before Him, from the calculations.
In the end, pragmatism will be proved to be eternally impractical.
It's a first principle of nature: We reap what we sow, even if the crop doesn't come in overnight.
"For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" -- Mark 8:36
At this point in our history, all the Democratic Party has to offer is wickedness. And all the Republican Party has to offer is fear and moral compromise with that wickedness.
But the God we serve did not give us a spirit of fear. He gave us "a spirit of love, and of power, and of a sound mind."
Fear is the opposite of love. "Perfect love casts out fear," as the scripture says.
He didn't tell us to overcome evil with our own brand of evil. He told us quite clearly to "overcome evil with good."
Church, why don't you understand why you stand so powerless in the political arena today? As long as you continue to be motivated and moved by fear instead of by faith, that sad, completely unnecessary, losing situation will continue.
Get a grip! The worsening craziness you see all around you has to stop, and it has to stop first with you! Turn back to God! Turn back to the truth! Turn back to principle! Stop compromising! This is our only temporal hope to remain a free people! The fate of our earthly posterity depends on this!
If you say you're a conservative, but you support liberals, you are, for all practical purposes, a liberal. You are, in other words, part of the problem.
I simply don't believe those who tell me they’re conservatives while they’re busy supporting liberals. Talk is cheap, and so are political labels. But actions speak louder than words. If the actions don’t line up with the words, I’m going to believe the actions every single time. The fact is, Trump Republicans are for all practical purposes liberals, no matter what they say.
One of the things I like the most about the most commonly-sung verse of our national anthem, the first verse, is that it ends with a very important question, one that should perpetually provoke us to thought, prayer, and decisive action.
"Oh, say does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?"
The fact remains that it can continue to fly over a people that are no longer free, because they have become cowards.
Virtually all of the arguments being made for Donald J. Trump are godless Utilitarian arguments, not biblically-sound Christian arguments.
Christians should know the difference.
Sadly, it is primarily folks who call themselves Christians who are making these godless, faithless, fear-filled arguments.
We're never going to save the country until Christians once again fear God more than they fear Democrats.
I'm not a very emotional guy, usually. But September 10th and 11th are very emotional for me. Those were the birthdays of my sister and mother, both of whom have gone on to be with the Lord, one by way of senseless violence of the worst possible kind, and the other via one of the most painful forms of cancer possible.
Add the commemoration of the horrible 9-11 attacks, and I get more than a bit choked up this time of year.
Thank God for the certain knowledge that He is the Sovereign over all things, and that someday He will finally and completely crush all evil, and destroy death itself, and wipe every tear from our eyes.
Abortion is not legal. It's not possible that it could be when abortion violates the laws of nature and nature's God, the natural law that God established, the moral principles of our national charter, the Declaration of Independence, all of the clauses of the stated purposes of our Constitution, as well as that Constitution's explicit, equal protection and due process requirements. When you cede legality to those who support this holocaust, they pretty much already have you beat.
I have some bad news for our supporters across America today.
Republican elections officials in two separate states, Florida and Arkansas, have now officially kicked us off the November 8th general election ballot.
In Florida nothing of any substance at all has changed from the two previous elections in which our America’s Party nominee has appeared on the ballot there on the America’s Party of Florida ballot line. The only thing that has in fact changed is the personnel in the General Counsel’s office for the Secretary of State. In other words, one new lawyer reinterpreting what the Florida Code requires, and the exact same Secretary of State who put us on the ballot four years ago under the exact same conditions, going along with that lawyer’s brand-new [mis]interpretation of the law.
In Arkansas, officials in the Secretary of State’s office misdirected our grassroots volunteers in terms of what information is required to be contained on the petition forms. Their office even supplied the official form for petitioning, which apparently doesn’t contain all of the information required by the Arkansas Code. Their office confirmed that we were using the proper forms before petitioning ever commenced. We have full records, including a video record, of them doing this.
I will be writing at great length in the days ahead about the many ways in which the Republican and Democrat parties have disenfranchised We the People with their burdensome ballot access requirements. But, in the short run, it seems that our only recourse in the two affected states is legal recourse. Not an easy thing to pursue for a completely grassroots, volunteer, citizen-led organization.
A word of encouragement: No matter what happens in these two cases in these two states, the work goes forward to make sure that the citizens of most of the states will still be able to vote for our principled conservative ticket, even if it is by writing in my name in most instances. We will be still be qualified in far more than enough states to win the election, numerically-speaking.
Let me let you in on a little secret. Almost none of those who are known as "political leaders" in this country today are truly leaders. They are completely in thrall to what their donors think, or what their fundraisers think, or what their hired political guns think, or what the media thinks, or what some pollster has convinced them the public thinks.
True leaders consistently stand up and tell you the truth, with little or no regard for what anyone else might think. Find those few leaders and back them to the hilt.
