I have been faithful to real conservative principles in the public arena for decades.
I've told the truth, as I know it, without fear or favor, consistently.
I've offered the people the only true roadmap for saving America, which is individual and national repentance, and a return to true moral and political principles.
I've run for president three times, governor of my state once, and served in the leadership of two political parties.
How much support have I received from conservatives and Christians during that time? Very little.
How much coverage have I received from the media? Almost none.
At the same time we've seen a string of completely unprincipled candidates lifted up within the GOP, the supposedly conservative party, culminating in the ascension of a complete moral reprobate named Donald J. Trump.
How much support has this craven individual received from folks who call themselves "conservative"? Overwhelming support, to the point of cult-life devotion.
How much media coverage has this dangerous, craven, crackpot received from the media? Literally hundreds of billions of dollars worth of free advertising.
It's no fun being the canary in the coalmine, believe me, but at least my experience can be an object lesson to you about the true state of America, and the American church. I hope and pray that you draw the right conclusions from it all. The earthly fate of our children and grandchildren depends on somebody doing so.
