Correction on the article below: On December 23, Fox News stated that Franklin Graham left the Republican Party and would run for president himself as an Independent. Only one half of this is true. He left the Republican Party but is not running for president himself. He is not yet endorsing any particular candidate. He has a year long campaign in 2016 called the “Decision America Tour,” whereby he is encouraging all Americans to pray and vote. He will be traveling from capital to capital in all fifty states, starting with Des Moines, Iowa on January 5, 2016.
Franklin Graham will start his campaign as he goes on the road in January. If this is the case, it will be the first time in quite awhile that I will NOT have to vote for the better of two evils; I can vote with a clear conscience. Imagine, Graham could start a powerful base from within the Republicans, Democrats, Independents and minority ethnic groups.
Following are a couple of quotations from Franklin Graham’s Facebook page yesterday, that obviously tells volumes about his mindset and decision:
“I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or Tea Party to do what is best for America…”
“Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble.”
“Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted fetuses with utter disregard for human life is reminiscent of Joseph Mengele and the Nazi concentration camps!”
The Republican Party, of course, compromised with the Democratic Party, as Paul Ryan (Speaker of the House) helped pass a bill last week that would exonerate Planned Parenthood from their barbaric debauchery. Planned Parenthood received one half a billion dollars in this government bill! This was the tipping point for Franklin Graham. Planned Parenthood is the biggest baby killer in the United States.
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, placed their organization in black neighborhoods, and we all know what her desire was.
Note: Franklin Graham already had plans to visit and evangelize all fifty states in our nation with the Gospel in 2016. Perhaps he is homogenizing this with announcing his candidacy as an independent write in candidate for the presidency.
My thoughts: Franklin Graham does not want to run for president, yet like many of us, he has no confidence in any part of our political system. It is ALL corrupt. I believe Graham’s running for the oval office can be linked with a famous statement by Edmund Burke: “All it takes for evil to prevail is for a few good men to do nothing.” This is the year of the outsider, because our populace does not like what they see in Washington, D.C., pure and simple. If Franklin Graham only receives ten votes, I will be one of them. Donald Trump will have trouble finding dirt on this man of God. Like Ted Cruze, Franklin Graham will refuse to disparage his opponents, and set his sights on the topics at hand. This will be interesting, and if Christians bathe it in prayer and God blesses, who knows what could happen. “With God, all things are possible.” Jesus Christ Pastor Steve
