The debate is tonight, Trump and Clinton

With help from his thirty four Catholic advisers, Donald Trump has identified the following areas which are of special concern:
  • Religious Liberty, 
  • Pro-life, Judicial Nominations, 
  • Education, 
  • Healthcare, 
  • Jobs and Taxation, and 
  • Safety and Security. 
These issues sound the same for most Christians. At least the ones I know. His strong conservative positions in each of these signal areas can be found at his website. 
 "I am and will remain pro-life. Public funding of abortion providers is an insult to people of faith at the least, and is an affront to good government and governance, at best. I will work to support the dignity of human life from conception to natural, dignified death." Contrast this to Clinton's pro-choice stance, where a baby is vulnerable to a violent death at any point during its life in the womb.

 "Catholic education is a shining example of how education can work very well on the local level without the meddling of Washington bureaucrats. I will defend the religious liberty of Catholic schools, private schools, charter schools, and homeschooling families. I will be the biggest cheerleader for school choice programs so we can give every child in America, particularly disadvantaged African American and Hispanic American children trapped in failing government run schools, the best possible educational opportunities. I will end Common Core and will get the federal government out of the public education business."
This morning I watched one of Hillary's "I fight for all children" and "all children should grow up to reach their potential" political ads. It's enough to make you gag if you know her record on abortion, Planned Parenthood, and her very selective concern. Some children are not worthy of the opportunity to reach their potential; many of them are black, disabled, or conceived outside of marriage. 42% of all abortions in New York City are for black women, and abortions outnumber live births for blacks in that city.

As you watch a very scripted and determined Hillary Clinton in the debate tonight, don't forget about her Vice President selection who is even more careless about the jihadi threat than either our president or his running mate. As Hillary met with Netanyahu yesterday her colleague Tim Kaine gives cover for jihadis and may be the most anti-Israel elected official we have.
