This Democrat may have encountered the need for a Higher Power in his life. Sometimes it takes a life altering event to do that. He may have also done some research into the people that founded the country. To be fair, the words “under God” were added in 1954 in response to the Communist threat at the time. But the country’s founders all had a belief in at least the Ten Commandments and God created that.
Democrats want man to have all the power
While the GOP understands man shouldn’t have all that power. More than one President has said two terms is enough. The Twenty Second Amendment was passed in 1947 to keep it that way.
But an unnamed Democrat called C-SPAN on Monday to say he was switching because the word “God” was used so often.
Democrats don’t want people watching Trump
Given he was in the Democratic area of Lorain, OH and didn’t want to be harassed or even killed for his views, “Rick” will be voting red this election.
“The people on the Democratic side, at their convention — acted like they were pushing God right out of it. And that had a lot to do with changing my mind,” the caller explained.
“I’m a lifelong Democrat. I’m from Lorain, Ohio, which is a Democrat city in Ohio. And I just want to say after watching the convention tonight on TV on C-SPAN here, I am definitely changing my vote to Republican. And I’ll tell you what, they just put the Democratic Party to … shame. I’m gonna’ follow the Republican Party now,” he remarked.
Democrats won’t or can’t understand
C-SPAN host Peter Slen asked him why. “Rick” said, “It was the heartfelt way they came across to the American people. And I was really touched by the number of times they used the word, ‘God.’ They put God into everything and the people on the Democratic side on their convention act like they were pushing God right out of it. And that had a lot to do with changing my mind.”
Lorain, OH is a Democrat town for 50 years now. “Rick” isn’t a union member. President Trump narrowly lost to Hillary in OH in 2016.
