Did you see the article where Donald Trump stated that he is going to keep National Canadian Nationals’ out of America until there are less Middle Eastern Refugees and Islamic Middle East persons living in Canada?

Poles are not allowed to vote in Iowa,only people.

Peter Netterville, I am a little saddened to see you write that you would not mind if Alberta separates from Canada and becomes the 51st State of the U.S. .
I am a strong Canadian federalist, loyal to the goals and ideals of our nation. I hope and trust that we are a good neighbour to the United States.
I think you mentioned it in the past, but where do you live again?

Thank you Maurice for your comments and for the quote. I agree wholeheartedly that until we elect officials who are willing to humble themselves before our sovereign God, surrender to Christ, and be driven by both integrity and wisdom (as opposed to simply knowledge) we are doomed to flounder, both Canada and the USA.

Maurice, when Obama was running for the first term, all the Christians I know said they would rather Obama be in as President than Mitt Romney because Mitt Romney was a Morman and Mormans are considered by Christians to be a cult. They did not want a “cultist” to be President, so they chose the liar who said he was a Christian (even though the evidence to the contrary was available even at that time). Just look at how that worked out. Obama is a disaster for the US. Mitt Romney would have been a far better choice by a long shot.

A President, even a strong Christian one, will do nothing for the revival of the church. Church and state are separated far more in the US than in Canada, as they should be. Conversely, a non-Christian as President will make no difference to the revival of the Christian church in the US so long as that president does not actively try to suppress the church. Is Trump anti-Christian to the point of possibly attempting to actively suppress Christians in the US?

The only way revival will happen is if the people submit the the authority of the Holy Spirit in their lives. It is a personal choice and no President will ever be able to do that.

In my opinion, the US needs a strong voice to stand up for the US again.

However, my opinion about Trump is also not popular among my family nor my friends. Nevertheless, I still stand by it.

If Trump wins, then once again Canada is out of step with the USA. I think the only time in my adulthood, which much longer than I want to admit, the two countries were in step was the Clinton-Chretien years. Mind you, Junior is so stupid he is out of step with the President he should be in step with…how does that happen? Right, I answered it already, stupidity.

Sorry, Peter, but as a Christian, I have to go along with Joel C. Rosenberg on this. Here’s what he wrote in his blog:

" As I wrote last August, I’ve been praying about this and studying the Scriptures for many months, asking the Lord for clarity, and here is what I have concluded — America needs a Josiah. A President cannot save America from all our troubles, but leadership matters. Above all, we need a sweeping spiritual revival throughout the Church, based on the principles found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. We need a Great Awakening among those who don’t know Christ personally. We need God to wake up a lost nation from their spiritual slumber to earnestly seek the Lord for individual and national forgiveness and restoration. I’m praying for such sovereign moves of God.

At the same time, I’m praying God raises up a President like Josiah, the one-time King of Judah whom the Bible describes as one of the most humble, strong, wise and impressive leaders of all-time. Obviously, we don’t want a theocracy. So I don’t literally mean America needs a king. And I’m not saying America needs a Pastor-in-Chief or a Theologian-In-Chief. We’re not looking for someone perfect. That will have to await the Second Coming. But before you vote, I strongly encourage you to read the Biblical accounts of Josiah. I believe you will find qualities in his life, his faith, his leadership and his passion for and commitment to making bold, sweeping, transformational change that are benchmarks of the kind of leader we need right now. I do see several possible candidates who — even with their weaknesses and flaws — could emerge as such a leader, especially with much prayer and wise counselors around them. But I have to be honest with my readers that there is one candidate on the Republican side who is definitely not a Josiah. Donald J. Trump is currently the national front-runner in the GOP, and is leading the pack in Iowa. But he would be a catastrophe for America should he be elected President. Mr. Trump is trying to convince the country that he is a deeply committed conservative. But all the evidence says he has been a liberal all of his adult life. Even if he has recently changed his views, all we have is his word. There is very little fruit in his life that would indicate that he has had a true change of heart on matters of faith or policy. Indeed, he has said openly that he does not need to repent or ask God for forgiveness. It would be a mistake to entrust the entire pro-life, pro-marriage movement to a man who has blown up two marriages of his own, boasts of his infidelities, runs gambling and strip clubs, has supported abortion on demand and Planned Parenthood for decades, and talks of appointing his own pro-choice sister to the Supreme Court. It would be a disaster to entrust the economy to a man who has proposed both the biggest tax cut in history (with no plan to pay for it) and the biggest tax increase in history (in 1999). Further, it would be a catastrophe to entrust the security of our nation and our allies to a man who has no foreign policy and national security experience, who clearly doesn’t understand the threat of Radical and Apocalyptic Islam, and who says he gets his military advice from watching Sunday TV talk show. I realize some — maybe many — of my readers will be angry at what I’m writing. But I have to be honest with my readers about the enormous threat Mr. Trump poses to all that we hold dear. His arrogance, narcissism, greed and lack of respect for women, minorities, and anyone who disagrees with him disqualifies him to be President of the United States. I do pray for Mr. Trump that he will either truly come to personal relationship with Christ through repentance and faith, or — if he has already made that decision — will humbly seek discipleship and grow in his new faith. But even if he’s a new convert, he is not ready to be president. Thus, I am deeply concerned that so many professed Evangelical Christians are supporting Mr. Trump. Perhaps they haven’t looked carefully at his life, his statements, his record, his leadership, his allies, and his flip-flops. On the blog, I’ve posted 32 reasons a Trump presidency would be a catastrophe for America. Each is a direct headline, based on specific statements by Mr. Trump. (There are many more. But this is plenty for reasonable people to consider.) Please carefully review this, and please share it with family, friends and others on social media. Here are the first five. 1. Trump: I could “shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters” (CNN) — “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot people and I wouldn’t lose voters.”

Let’s see how the establishment treats him and his supporters. Perhaps they will lock them out like they did to Ron Paul so they could not vote?

Well, the USA could do worse than Trump as President.

As someone commented in another article here on theRebel that if we had a system like in the US where the President is elected separate from the party, then we may not have the current airhead PM we do now.

Let’s be frank, though, Canada needs a strong USA. And on that note, I would love to see Alberta separate from Canada and become the 51st state. Heck, I would even be happy Alberta even being a federal district or territory of the US.
