"This is the sort of leader I can follow. This is a man I can unreservedly honor as President of my country. His moral integrity qualifies him to be entrusted with 4 to 8 years of my country's future."
"A true conservative leader who honors life from conception to the grave. Mr. Tom Hoefling stands strongly for common sense conservative values that honor God, family, and the American people. I believe that he will uphold the Constitution of the United States of America as the founding fathers had envisioned it. He receives my full endorsement as a candidate for President of the United States of America. I will support him from now until I pull the lever in November."
"Our pastor, among many others, has called upon Christ followers to take a stand against the norms of today's culture should they conflict with God's Word. We are to stand firm even if it means standing alone. This means action is required. It's not enough to own a farm field and pray for corn to grow. We have to plant the seeds, plow, etc. also. It's not enough to have a child and pray the child turns out ok. We must teach, educate, raise, and be an example to the child on a continuous basis. If we want a President who isn't corrupt, it's not enough to pray for a President with character. We also must stop electing corrupt candidates. I will be the change I want to see in others. If a legitimate Christ follower who over time bears good fruit --- if that candidate truly exists --- where do I stand? Should I side with Goliath over David, because David had a slim chance mathematically? Should I run up to Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; and tell them that I'm glad they mean well, but they really don't stand a chance? I choose to believe in miracles because God is in control, whether my chosen candidate wins or loses. If miracles didn't happen, I wouldn't be a father, I wouldn't be a CPA, I wouldn't be alive, period. I can't tell you who to vote for. It's not my place. But even if I stand alone, risking public foolishness right in front of you, then consider it done. My vote will go to Tom Hoefling for President in November."
"Tom Hoefling makes too much sense to be ignored. I cannot vote for either major party candidate, and feel an obligation to vote. I abhor abortion, the murder of innocent children, and dislike the lack of moral Christian values we used to hold dear. God and God alone can restore us as a nation. The Lord will raise up whom He chooses so I do not consider this a 'wasted' vote at all."
Gregory (Scotland Yard detective): "Is there any other point to which you would wish to draw my attention?"
Sometimes you can learn more about a politician by paying close attention to what he doesn't say than by what he does say.
I bit the bullet and watched Trump's nomination speech on the last night of the 2016 Republican National Convention, and I didn't like it one bit. Truthfully, in its content and its delivery it reminded me of something that would have fit in quite well in Nuremberg, circa 1934. Go watch the 1935 movie "Triumph of the Will" and tell me that I'm wrong.
But, I'm not going to point in this missive much to the things Trump said, or shouted, in his speech.
I'm going to point to the dog that didn't bark.
Trump dropped the names of a long litany of people in his speech. But one particular Person was almost completely missing from the presentation: Almighty God. Even the obligatory, perfunctory "God bless America" that was inserted at the end in the pre-written text wasn't actually uttered by Trump. Apparently he forgot to read it off the teleprompter. He did manage to get out a "God bless you," as a last afterthought. That was it. Perhaps someone in the crowd sneezed.
Also completely missing was any sense of our national obligations to God, to do right, to enforce justice, and to walk humbly before Him.
Also nowhere to be found was our national first premise, our historic understanding of the self-evident truth that our rights come from God, not from mere men, and that because of that, those rights are unalienable.
And it wasn't just God, or our national obligations to Him, and to each other, that was missing. Trump also totally ignored another whole set of very important persons: the innocent victims of abortion. He spoke rightly of victim Sarah Root as "a child to sacrifice on the altar of open borders." But he completely ignored the more than 3000 innocent little boys and girls who are sacrificed every single day in this country on the altar of "choice" and illicit judicial power.
He spoke of "safety at home." What about safety in the womb?
He said that he has "no patience for injustice." Really? What about justice for the sixty million or more defenseless victims of the American holocaust?
What about the next sixty million who will be slaughtered because political elites like Trump do not care to even mention, much less obey, God, or fulfill their constitutional obligations, or protect the innocents in their mothers' wombs?
Our wise founders, in addition to premising our form of government on the reason human government exists, the equal protection of the God-given, unalienable rights of us all, stated clearly that the ultimate purpose of our great Constitution was "to secure the Blessings of Liberty to our Posterity." They placed the rights of that Posterity on an equal, or even superior, plane to their own rights.
But, sadly, our Posterity, those who are not even yet conceived, were not worth a mention either.
Let me be blunt: Trump doesn't care about the Source of our Rights, the Source of our Security, the Source of our national sovereignty and prosperity, the unalienable rights of the people, or the unalienable rights of our Posterity. He doesn't care about the raison d'etre of all just human government. He doesn't care about our national purposes, as stated in our Constitution. He doesn't care about that Constitution's explicit, imperative equal protection requirements. He doesn't care about reining in a judiciary that is trampling down our rights, and the rights of the most helpless and innocent among us, in complete disregard for the obligations of their own oaths. He doesn't care about the actual meaning and content of his own oath, if the people are foolish enough in November to put him in the position to raise his right hand and take it.
If he cared about those things, he would have considered them worthy of mention during the biggest moment of his life, with the whole world watching and listening.
What does he care about? Getting elected. How is he going about getting elected? By continually puffing himself up and pandering shamelessly to you with thundering promises about "deals," and security, and law and order, and how he is going to make you rich.
Arrogant promises he can't possibly keep. Why? Because he is utterly ignorant, utterly silent, about the absolutely essential predicates for any possible security or prosperity for our country, both now or in the future.
Pay close attention to the dog in the night-time, folks. It just might solve the whole mystery for you. If it's not barking, there is a very important reason why this is the case.
"Some of you know that my husband, Tom, received more than 40,000 votes for President in 2012, placing eighth among all candidates in the general election, according to the FEC. This was accomplished solely by grassroots activism. No money, and barely any media, was involved.
Tom and I have worked for many years to end abortion, and in 2015, Tom was named by NewsMax as one of the "100 Most Influential Pro-life Advocates" in the country. We truly believe abortion is unconstitutional, and that it persists only by the great fallacy of judicial supremacy advocated by compromised politicians. Abortion would end overnight if our leaders would simply uphold their oath to the Constitution, and check the tyranny of the Supreme Court.
We are prepared to lead in this effort.
But we can't do it alone.
We have people working all over the country to get on as many state ballots as we can. Wherever we can’t get directly on the ballot, we will be running an officially-recognized write-in campaign. But we still need volunteers and electors in many places. So, if you would like to give voters a real choice in this election, join our fight for the rule of law and principle. Just send an email to my husband at firstname.lastname@example.org, or simply sign up here at the website.
Every election comes down to the leadership and diligence of the grassroots. I think We the People can turn this country around, if we stay faithful to God, obey the Constitution, and don’t give up."
"I support Tom Hoefling for President! His values and goals for our country match mine more than any other candidate currently running. I'm voting my conscience and trusting God with the outcome."
"The Bible and the U.S. Constitution are my guides, in that order. There is only one candidate, I am aware of, who meets the minimum standards set forth in both. That candidate is Tom Hoefling. Good fruit can only come from a good tree. All others will disappoint. Please join me in saying, 'Godspeed Tom Hoefling! America needs you!'"
"Without our moral understanding of God-given, unalienable, individual rights, and without the crucial principle of equal protection under the law, the historic American claim to liberty and self-government is gone. That's why, unless it is stopped, the practice of human abortion will inevitably be fatal to the American republic. A building cannot long stand once its foundations have been eroded away."
-- Tom Hoefling
CAN-DO-USA of Lohrville, Iowa
"You can't beat something with nothing," as the old saying goes. While we're fighting to rein in an out-of-control federal government, we have to be about the serious business, the hard work, of rebuilding America from the bottom up.
If you're not going to allow an unconstitutional socialist welfare state, you have to be prepared to live and work and prosper in a truly free constitutional republic.
In other words, there's going to be no more supposedly "free lunch." As the scripture puts it:
"...this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat."
-- II Thessalonians 3:10
The rain just blew through. Time to go dig more new potatoes and pick sweet corn to feed the family and to sell to raise money for the food pantry ...
"Along with the national convention of The American Party of the United States I am proud to support Tom Hoefling for president. Tom was nominated by acclamation at our national convention in May, and I gladly add my name to his supporters!"
"I'm proud to find a candidate who truly reflects Biblical morality and is endeavouring to lead the nation in such a way as to honor God and prosper the people of the United States. Righteousness exalts a nation, and sin is a reproach to any people. We never can expect America to be anything 'great' again if we would not turn from murdering our young and continuing to further immorality in our borders. Tom Hoefling has my vote as the only candidate I see who would truly glorify God in his pursuits!"
"I am happy to endorse candidate Tom Hoefling for next President of the United States. I believe he is the most qualified among the field of candidates. I say this, neither for the fundraising he has done (he doesn't & won't), nor for the party that has nominated him (like G. Washington, he doesn't like parties). What does qualify him is the consistent and clear moral compass which guides his policies. His plain-spoken and unapologetic commitment to the protection of life for persons in the U.S. commends him to voters, especially his stance toward those unborn who cannot yet speak to defend their Right to life – one given explicitly by the 5th Amendment to our Constitution, after having been declared among those "unalienable" in our nation's Declaration of Independence 240 years ago. Mr. Hoefling is a true conservative and advocate of liberty through self-government, not a lukewarm one. Further, I cannot recall encountering a candidate who is so able and willing to cite Scripture, both in support of his policies and in support of the Christian values on which this nation was founded. I am certain such morality would be a hallmark of his presidency, because it is the centerpiece of his campaign. I will reflect on the exercise of my vote this election day knowing that I have made an honorable mark on my ballot in support of Mr. Hoefling. Choosing between the lesser of two evils is a ruinous and false dichotomy."
History clearly shows that the path of the de-humanization, the de-personalization, of human beings made in the image and likeness of God is always, ultimately, the path of horrors beyond description.
The horrors of abortion are horrible in and of themselves, beyond belief. But the horrors to come, if we don't stop this slaughter, if we don't repent, if we don't renew our national commitment to our foundational principles of justice and equality before the law, will make all prior horrors as nothing by comparison.
It is not possible to overstate the seriousness of this matter. This is not some mere "political issue," or campaign talking point. This question will determine the very survival of the American republic, and the American people.
As Thomas Jefferson said, so presciently, concerning the horrors of slavery:
"God who gave us life gave us liberty. Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are the gift of God? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, that his justice cannot sleep forever."
As I have said so many times, in the end, the only real national security threat we face is to offend Almighty God to the extent that His patience and mercy toward us runs out. No matter how powerful we may think we are, there is no defense against God once His anger at our cruelty and injustice overflows.
For the second election in a row, it would appear that I will be the only presidential candidate who has even begun to grasp these stark facts.
For the second election in a row, I am the only candidate providing the American people with the key that makes it even remotely possible to avert certain national disaster and destruction.
The way I see it, you have three choices:
1) You can continue to empower the Republicans or the Democrats, who have made it abundantly clear that they will do absolutely NOTHING to stop the horrors of abortion on demand.
2. You can effectively do nothing, sitting on your hands making excuses while your country and your liberty, and any hopes for your children and grandchildren, disappear.
3. Or, you can actively help those of us who have consistently spoken, and advocated, and acted in such a way so as to save the country.
"I support Thomas Hoefling because he is a true Christian conservative who will lead with the Word of God and the Constitution set by our Christian forefathers. I believe he will protect the right to life for all children despite how they were conceived because he understands by the word of God that abortion is the murder of a human being. I believe that every Christian should vote with integrity and vote for one such as Thomas who truly stands on biblical values. Anything less would be compromise."
"We voted for Tom before, for the same reasons we will be voting for him this year. We need a president who understands and respects the duties as president of the USA, and the liberties of those whom he represents. Sadly, this nation has rarely seen such a president, especially, in recent years. We do not need another puppet president. We do not need a celebrity elitist president. And, we do not need a president who has no interest in Democracy. Tom Hoefling has never presented himself in any other way than conservative. The other current candidates have never presented themselves as conservatives, and one is now pretending to be one to trick the Rep. into voting for someone who is actually a life long Dem. supporter. We need Tom Hoefling to represent us because he is not acting. He is not putting on a show. He is not trying to buy the office. He is merely trying to represent his country in a conservative manner, and try to salvage our nation from ruin. A vote for Tom is a vote for the American Dream."
"I am putting my 100% support behind Tom Hoefling. If two-thirds of the Christians who don't like the mainstream candidates, and/or some of the 53 million evangelicals who did not vote last presidential election at all, would throw their support behind someone such as Tom with principles and Godly values, this election would be won by Mr. Tom Hoefling who firmly stands upon our nations godly founding principles."
