Who Will Win? -12-7-17 By Dave Gunn PDF  | Print |  E-mail

Who Will Win?


     The polls are all over the place.  Some have Roy Moore winning by as much as eight points, and some have Doug Jones winning by as much as four points.  The consensus of the polls is that Roy Moore has a slight lead as of this writing, but that can change for the better or for the worse.


     The Democrats have pulled out all the stops in this race.  Believing that Judge Moore was weakened by the brutal assault from the Washington Republican establishment during the Republican run-off, they put forth their strongest candidate in hopes of pulling off the coup of the decade.


     To have any chance of beating Roy Moore, Doug Jones had to lie about himself.  Positioning himself as a centrist, Jones hid his true beliefs even to the point of not identifying himself as a Democrat in his advertising.


     Let’s examine the issues to see if Jones is truly the moderate centrist he claims to be.  [1] He would allow abortion at any time during a pregnancy, right up to the point of birth.  [2] He wouldn’t even consider Trump’s wall, and is for open immigration.  [3] He opposes your tax cut.  [4] He brags about the number of guns he owns, but would restrict your gun rights.  [5] He is all in for Obamacare. 


     The only conclusion we can draw is that Doug Jones is a Hillary Clinton/Chuck Schumer/Nancy Pelosi leftist Democrat.  Of course, if Jones had run on his real principles, he would have started 30 points behind Moore.


     As people began to figure out who Jones was, Moore opened up an 11-point lead.  This is when the Democrats unleashed their secret weapon.  A group of women claimed that Roy Moore had committed sexual improprieties with them 38-40 years ago.  Just why they all kept silence for all these decades only to come forth all at once at a crucial moment in a political campaign has not been explained.


     Further, the stories they tell have gaping holes.  If we apply the standard of guilt only upon evidence beyond a reasonable doubt, we must decide for Roy Moore, for there is a mountain of reasonable doubt in the stories his accusers tell.


     Once The Washington Post published its hit piece on Moore, the liberal lap-dog fake-news media picked it up and the drum beat began.  Even Fox the News Network, previously known as being “fair and balanced,” joined in with the leftist media, having guest after guest on to demand Moore quit the race while having almost no one on to defend him


     Republicans in Washington deserted Moore, along with some Republicans in Alabama, most notably Senator Richard Shelby, who must be planning to retire at the end of his present term.  Of the 50 pastors who endorsed Moore at the beginning of the primary season, 4 rescinded their endorsements.  Perhaps they never read in the Bible that “the fear of man bringeth a snare.”


     Through all this, Judge Moore has remained steadfast.  Men of lesser substance would have caved in to the pressure long ago.  However, there is a strength in the knowledge that you are innocent, and combined with a faith that God will work His will in all things, Moore has withstood the onslaught and the desertions and with our help, will be elected to the United States Senate.


     At the beginning we mentioned the polls.  The thing to remember is that the only poll that counts is the one that will be taken on Tuesday, December 12th.  It is now all about turnout.  Let’s create a land-slide!
