LD15 Jackie Phillips In Response To Activist Anita Christy and others:   “The Lord provides two different types of rulers, one type for Blessing, one type for judgment.   We have had almost 8 years of Obama and yet we have not repented and turned back to God. Until we do as the scriptures tell us in 2 Chronicles 7:14 he will not heal our land. Scriptures also tells us what the guide lines are for choosing leaders. The Lord demands a higher standard.   Trump does not measure up and I will not give him or Hillary a pass .Read 1 Timothy 3:1-13,”  

Activist Art Olivas to Congressional candidate Ken Bennett: “In my eyes this puts you in with John McCain and Jeff Flake! It may be a cold a day in hell before I follow their endorsement!
