The Brown-Eyed Beauty (BEB) just told me that she’d chatted with a dear friend who was surprised by her seeming enthusiasm for voting for Trump.
Now, some background is needed here.
The BEB and I are both staunch pro-Americans who have already voted for Trump.
Me, a pro-American, am a little more so given my role as Christian liberal ideologue.
BEB? A little more on her role: A deeply spiritual Christian Granddaughter-of-the-Cavalry-General/Daughter-of-the-Air-Cavalry-Colonel/Mom/Wife/Mother/Grandmother).
Her life-buddy, who will vote the same way, is extremely intelligent, especially in the pragmatical sense of the word. If I were finalizing the shortlist for the officer in charge of the D-Day invasion, she’d make the cut. But also extremely focused on her spiritual duties as a Christian and her personal duties as a wife and mother. She doesn’t follow politics. My Kate does.
Her friend said to her “You sound like you are enthusiastic about voting for Trump!”
My best friend BEB is, and so am I. Why?
It has been a long process.
Trump’s actual accomplishments in the service of the cause that Kate and I believe in as American Christians have been surprising to me. And to Kate, though maybe quite a bit less so. The longer he’s been in office, the more surprising and delighting they’ve been. Nominating Amy Coney Barrett, and pushing the left-wing Senate opposition into precipitous and ignominious retreat on the hearings, has been the pinochle of success so far.
But not really. Trump’s Mid-East policy successes were already nothing short of stunning. But Kate just told me that there are five more States considering joining the Abraham Agreement, including…
Yep. Including them.
I’m enthusiastic. Cautiously.Published in
