Max Lucado: I Had a Dream That Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump Reached a Truce

Best-selling author and megachurch pastor Max Lucado’s op-ed went viral in February when he uncharacteristically broke his silence on politics, decrying Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s crude antics. But this week he shared his dream where Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton “reached a truce.”

In his blog post titled “Trump, Hillary, and the Strangest Dream,” Lucado recounts falling asleep after watching the Republican National Convention. Also weighing on his mind as he slept was news of national crises like the shooting violence of police officers and African American citizens.

But the convention he dreamed about was not the RNC.

“In my dream a change settles over the Convention. People are quiet, reverent. Crowds gather outside, not to protest, but to witness something extraordinary. Word is out that a meeting has occurred. Trump and Hillary talked long into the night. Who suggested the meeting? What was the agenda? Did their teams huddle in corners? My dream gives no details,” Lucado writes.

American Christians have to think twice before going to vote

Money opening doors

In Europe we can see how un-democratic the voting system is in the United States of America. Big problem for the citizens of those states is that the people without enough money never make a change to become a candidate in the running or even spoken off.

Mud fights

This year it might have been the candidates looked previously to the Belgian politicians throwing with mud regularly and wanted to continue the way they had chosen in 2012. But it must be said, the Americans won with big lead of unheard and unseen denigration of each other. The man with the big mouth stretched the crown by having it all the time more about Hillary Clinton than explaining to the public what he was planning to do to help the country.

Turning winds

Trump on several occasions showed clearly that he twisted and turned like the wind, but to our surprise his public did not seem to notice and cheer him all the time, whatever this man raved. He could talk any nonsense and it was glutted like ‘Starbucks coffee’ and ‘American dream’.

He never proposed a plan to address the African-American community and minorities. First he hated all the ‘fags’ and told transgender, coloured people, Hispanics and all non Americans better could be somewhere else, and those who are not the main American citizen man or woman could best be determinated in a camp. Though suddenly he said on the convention he would also have an eye to the trangenders and other feeling men and women (whatever that might mean).

Republicans have constructed the most overtly anti-LGBT platform in history, but Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump is doing his best to show he is sympathetic towards the LGBT community. {Trump Extends Olive Branch to LGBT Community}

Trump Pence Kiss

Naturally Trump is not going to say he ever made mistakes or did anything wrong. As a born business man he knows how to play his customers. He knows the tricks of his trade and the primary rules of a politician. As such he is never to

“allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.” {After the Acceptance Speech}

Chances or opportunities

At first nobody would ever given this billionaire the chance of winning the president candidacy. Most people would have thought all Americans would see his mounting a campaign of snarl and sneer, not substance, because he had nothing to offer. All the mistakes about names and places, you would think would have dismantled and unmasked him. Any educated person, we would think, would have come to see this man has views which are concocted and are wrong in their diagnosis of America’s problems and dangerous in their proposed solutions and that he has no clear view of the world situation and is not a diplomatic figure to solve problems which could endanger not only the American nation but also the whole world. Take just one of his last expressions; with the present situation going on in Europe, he would already have started a world war.

Nobody of his entourage and fans ever questioned his plans or asked his sayings to make hard.

Like auditor for Franklin County, Ohio, we are 

“still waiting to see a very prominent Republican have a national dialogue about why White Americans and Black Americans still can’t seem to communicate and understand each other’s perspectives.” {Does Donald Trump Have Any Real Policy Plans?}

Weapon of fear

You would expect a candidate for presidency having his main speech at a convention centred on what he really plans to do for all people living in the nation he has to steer to a better future. At the tumultuous Republican National Convention Trump had a few words about restoring what he called, “law and order.”

He not only did not stop to make the people afraid of and angry on Hilary Clinton, he continued fearing those American citizens for the

Nearly 180,000 illegal immigrants with criminal records, ordered deported from /the U.S.A./ /who/, are tonight roaming free to threaten peaceful citizens

Out of the 925,000 immigrants who received an order of deportation last year, 20 percent (185,000) had at least one criminal conviction, charged with non-violent crimes, but that is not difficult because it is already a crime to enter the country illegally, so when caught they always will have a conviction. Hooked ones always shall have to face one or an other (non violent) conviction and may be considered ‘criminals’ according to some.

Also to call a person a criminal because he or she has done something stupid, like Hilary Clinton with the e-mails, is far over the top. Who does not stupid things in his or her life. Does that mean he or she is a criminal?

There may be enough in Hillary Clinton’s background to give the appearance of wrong-doing.  Trump gives his public the impression he believes it to be true and that it must be so. Therefore those who want a criminal fee America should believe it too and should make sure to get that  “Crooked Hillary” out of the way.

Who would not believe that man with so much charisma and conviction, who has proven he can do everything he wants.

He believes everything he says, as he’s saying it.  It makes it easier to gather followers, and for them to believe it too, no matter how outrageous the statement.  This is why he could win- the simple force of his personality.

writes Freelance Journalist in the Milton Ontario area Laura Steiner in her article “Donald Trump Could Be President

All christians should like a-religious people be aware of the wolf in sheepskin. For those who are crying to have America going to come back (to what?) we also would like to give some warning.

The United States of America may have lots of people who sincerely love their country. There are also some who love it so much they would do everything for it (and that can become dangerous.). In that country which was build up a European dream of freedom, there are enough people who sincerely protect many, even protesters who mock them,  because the love the nation where freedom of thought has to be every ones part.

Stories braking the heart

Ted Cruz talked about Michael Smith’s story which weighed on his heart perhaps that’s because his daughter Caroline is about the same age as his eldest daughter, and happens to share the same name. Maybe it’s because he saw a video of that dear, sweet child choking back sobs as she remembered her Daddy’s last question to her.  He said

Maybe it’s because we live in a world where so many others have had their lives destroyed by evil in places like Orlando, and Paris, and Nice, and Baton Rouge. Maybe it’s because of the simple question itself. What if this right now is our last time? Our last moment to do something for our families, and our country? Did we live up to the values we say we believe? Did we do all we really could?

That’s really what elections should be about. That’s why you and millions like you devoted so much time and sacrifice to this campaign. We’re fighting not for one particular candidate, or one campaign, but because each of wants to be able to tell our kids and grandkids, our own Caroline’s, that we did our best for their future and our country.  {see transcript Ted Cruz convention-speech}

Party division and no unity in the states

That country is now very clearly divided and even in the parties there is so much division they should come to see that much more political parties should exist because they are their but do not receive a voice. The republicans themselves are not only an amalgamation of very conservatives, fanatical christians, the gap between the majority and the one who got the most votes now is very huge.

It looked like the Republican party was willing to offer lots of his ideas just to beat Hillary Clinton. It also looks like the GOP assured herself that if they fail and Trump will not beat Hillary Clinton, they shall have a scapegoat. The whipping boy shall quietly slink whilst the very party leaders Trump’s supporters loathe will remain in their jobs come January helping Hillary Clinton orchestrate her inauguration.

“Since February I have been warning both that Trump could not beat Hillary Clinton in November and that there is no way I or many conservatives of faith could actually support him.”

writes Erick Erickson, who was convinced that Trump was a passing fad, at The Resurgent and ads

“There is no grand and elaborate conspiracy of pollsters in America. Trump has only been ahead in nine polls since January and the majority of those are Rasmussen polls, which are not worth the paper they are printed on.

The warnings have all fallen on deaf ears.”

“The Trump supporters have become the very Republican establishment they oppose and the very leaders of the party they hate will remain once Trump is gone. The GOP is now led by a Clinton donor and friend and party leaders bow before him pretending he is something other than what he is.”

That Putin cheers Trump is no wonder both having two peas in a pod.

For those who see both as unqualified for office and feel they should let their voice be heard and act now when there is still time to bring change.

Only one perfect government

But all people should know there does not exist such a thing as a perfect government in our present world. It only shall be at the return of Christ that we shall be able to get the most perfect government, under the leadership of Jesus Christ. Until that time will come we do have to manage and steer with what we have.

Not voting is also bringing out your vote, because it is also a declaration. Not talking to others about is is also keeping distance and bringing out your vote (though in silence and perhaps also in conscience).

In case you want to go to the ballot station or meet people who have an opinion of one or the other candidate, make sure your Christian voice is also heard. Whoever is a candidate and goes for president should be a person who is willing to accept Judeo Christian values and have an open mind concerning freedom of thought, this also meaning that people who feel different, like homo’s, transgender, are people to be accepted in our community. No matter what colour, race, religion, or no religion, every human being should be able to receive an equal place in our society and has to be free to speak and walk everywhere in the nation.

In such a nation of freedom of speech should be no place for tackiness and below-the-belt punches, and certainly not by the people who should be an example to the nation.
