Rand Paul: The best choice for Born Again Christians

While all of the other presidential candidates are carving up different sectors of the Evangelical Christian vote and insulting each other in the process, one thing is clear, Senator Rand Paul is the favorite of the “young” Evangelicals.

Jerry Johnson, president of the National Religious Broadcasters, is one of the most important evangelical leaders in the country. He must keep the peace among the powerful televangelists and thus is meticulously neutral in the 2016 presidential race.  But his son, Isaac Johnson, supports Rand Paul.

David Lane, labeled by the New York Times as “something of a stealth weapon for the right” has brokered meetings with evangelical leaders and most of the Republican candidates from Ted Cruz  and Ben Carson to Mike Huckabee and Bobby Jindal. But his daughter, Jillian Lane, supports Rand Paul and works as his press secretary.

James Robison, televangelist, who is perhaps the most politically savvy Christian leader in the country, has met all of the Republican candidates and refused to make a commitment.  But his son, James Randall Robison, supports Rand Paul.  And recently co-authored a book with him.

Surprisingly, Christian youth, like their secular counterparts support Rand Paul for some of the same reasons.

Yes, there is his lonely stand against the persecution of Christians in the Middle East.  There is his stand for criminal justice reform.  There is his stand for Life. But the key to his support is his campaign against the corruption that has killed the free enterprise system.  And that corruption has reached the point that it has become a moral crisis every much as important as abortion and religious freedom.

The only time Jesus lost his temper was when he saw how the moneychangers were cheating the people in the Temple.  Well, the moneychangers are back.

The ongoing transfer of wealth to a tiny few has robbed the churches and the American youth of billions of dollars.  Here’s how it works.

#1) Excessive regulations designed to protect the public are used to prevent start ups and the big companies are often exempted. It prevents young people from participating in the economy.

#2) Excessive taxes that subsidize some companies and penalize others have created monopolies.  It prevents young people from participating in the economy. In some cases their own tax dollars are subsidizing their very own competition.

#3) Policies of the Federal Reserve which award multibillion dollar loans at zero percent interest to banks and big companies while new businesses must pay interest through the nose keep the money flowing to the very few.  It prevents young people from participating in the economy.

#4) Those same companies buy the advertising from major media and get a free pass on the process in return.  Candidates who stand up to the corruption see themselves as targets of that media or ignored.  After all, the media giants are feasting off of the very same system.

When the previous Federal Reserve Chairman was asked why the FED had given an interest free loan over $100 million to the McDonalds Corporation he answered, “To create jobs.”

Ron Paul, the Senator’s father, was a candidate for president at the time and challenged the loan.  At the next presidential debate the NBC moderator was given more time than Ron Paul.  When Paul later complained to the host he was told, “I’m sorry Dr. Paul, a voice in my headset said, ‘Don’t go to Ron Paul, don’t go to Ron Paul.’”  The McDonalds Corporation sponsors the NBC Evening News.

The FED’s answer to why some companies get loans at zero interest and others do not proves the point.  Today’s economy has created $7 an hour jobs for graduates with Master’s and Doctorate Degrees. You can work at McDonalds but you cannot start your own Hamburger business.

For all but a very lucky few, the American dream is dead.

Senator Rand Paul has emerged as the only hope to save the country from this crisis.

While many candidates, from Bernie Sanders to Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, speak to the problem, there is no one else other than Rand Paul, who could even come close to providing a solution.

Bernie Sanders would take us deeper into socialism, already rejected by world history.

It was recently revealed that Ted Cruz, who publicly decries the pernicious role of the banks in corrupting the system, had his whole career financed by Goldman Sachs and hid that fact on his reporting documentation.

Donald Trump openly admits he gamed the system to build his businesses empire.

Brian Jacobs, a former consultant to the Billy Graham Organization agrees. “Pure religion is caring for the widows and orphans and how does that square with a monetary system that is rigged to keep out newcomers.”

It is theft. It has become a moral crisis. And both Republicans and Democrats are involved.  Only Senator Rand Paul offers a solution.

  1. Couldn’t agree more with Doug’s post here. I’m not even a Christian, but this has to be one of THE BEST post he has ever written (as opposed to few weak posts over last year during slow season).

    Senator Rand Paul has shown, during this campaign that he has the strength and wisdom to lead us back from the brink where we find ourselves today. By not taking on the authoritarian egomaniac Donald J. Trump, Ted Cruz has not proven to be smart, rather he has shown himself to be a coward. The National Review ” Against Trump ” is absolutely brilliant and a must read for everyone. Senator Rand Paul was saying most of what’s in there right from the beginning. Ted Cruz might be on the right side of a lot of issues today but he has flip flopped on some pretty important ones, he doesn’t respect the fourth amendment, he has made outrageous statements about making the sand glow in The Middle East and he wasn’t born in America. Senator Rand Paul has never wavered. Thank you Doug Wead, for writing such a comprehensive piece on why there should be no other choice for our next Commander-in-Chief. Rand Paul for President!

    I’ve been watching both the Dems and the GOP debates and listening, and this article is in line with what I’ve seen and heard so far. All these politicians have nothing new to offer, just more of the same.

    Only Rand Paul has fresh, new, and sound ideas. And it’s strange how the press does its best to drown him out. Which tells me we should hear more on what he has to say.

  4. Doug, I’m FURIOUS as hell after the Texas Planned Parenthood court ruling against activists opposing baby murders.

    I very honestly feel in my gut that sometime during the course of our lifetime, this country is on the path to a Second Civil War. That’s no hyperbole.

    there was an excellent youtube series done on his father in Dec 2011: The Bible & Ron Paul. It is a multi-part examination of Dr. Paul’s platform compared to the Bible. If for no other reason than an illustration of Proverbs 13:1 “A wise son heareth his father’s instruction”, I invite you to watch.
