Americans For Limited Government – You Couldn’t Be More Opposite Than Biden With Richard Manning
Americans for Limited Government is a nonpartisan nationwide network committed to advancing free-market reforms, private property rights and core American liberties. This country is in a very sad state when you need an organization that’s dedicated to fighting for the survival of America by restoring constitutionally limited government, allowing individuals to pursue life, liberty and happiness. We were founded on those principles and it’s what makes the United States of America the greatest country that’s ever existed. We’re in jeopardy of losing her forever on November 3rd or two months later after the Democrats “find” tens of thousands of fake ballots in the trunks of people’s cars.
In many ways, the Democrat’s, Big Tech Companies’, and Deep State’s Coronavirus Plandemic has backfired on them because as they say on Bar Rescue, “We’ve pulled back the doors and bust open the books,” to reveal what the left has been doing for the past 50 years to destroy this country. Finally, they have shown their true colors. It’s like they have taken off their masks and their agendas and intentions are staring us in the face. China, where do I begin? Our education system and the indoctrination of our youth. They hate freedom and do not appreciate how fortunate they are to have been born here. It makes you wonder, what’s wrong with their parents? Or, perhaps the cleverly crafted divisive narrative that systemic racism runs through the core of our nation, or the infamous quote by Barack Hussein Obama on October 30th, 2008, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”
Do you remember what Michele Obama said on May 14th, 2008? “All I know is we’re going to have to make sacrifices. We’re going to have to change our conversation. We’re going to have to change our tradition and our history. We’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” Who knew that those two “brainwashing modern-day American” pioneers would be setting us up to live in a world, only twelve years later, where we are re-imagining the police and de-funding them, not to mention having no regard for law and order and where Black Lives Matter and Antifa two terrorist groups, who riot, loot, burn buildings, tear down statues, murder police, and threaten innocent Americans are celebrated and certainly not arrested. But, a couple like Mark and Patricia McCloskey are indicted on gun charges for legally defending their property and their lives. We’re at war people and it’s going to get worse as we approach election day. If the left doesn’t win, then literally all hell is going to break loose. On the upside, we did win. The direction of the country has never been more clear. Your decision has never been more clear.
You’ve seen it play out in front of your unmasked or you’ve chosen to be a sheep, masked face, over the past seven months. Do you want Freedom, and Opportunity? Prosperity and Patriotism? Do you believe in the American Dream? Vote for Donald Trump. If you want socialist enslavement, destruction, economic despair, poverty, civil unrest, lawlessness, loss of your First Amendment, loss of your Second Amendment, elimination of your Freedom of Religion, and complete government control of your life, then go vote for Harris-Biden. I mean Biden-Harris and continue the plan of the Obamas and friends to dismantle our amazing country. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, January 20th, 2021, when you’ll be standing in a soup line having buyer’s remorse. Today’s topic is Americans for Limited Government – You couldn’t be more opposite than Biden. My special guest is a true Patriot, Rick Manning, the President of Americans for Limited Government. How are you, Rick?
I’m doing great, Michele. It’s a great day here in Washington, DC. Every day I get to take a breath so I can fight for Freedom in America, on a day that God has given me to do that, and I praise Him for it.
Rick, I’m thankful to have someone like you on the front lines in such a critical time. Your job must be exhausting. You live and work in DC, the swamp, where everything is in Bizarro land. Your day probably consists of explaining common sense, repeating yourself, battling the Deep State and looking at people going, “What are you thinking? Why would you do that?” I give you much kudos for that. When I was doing my research for the show, what I admired most was on your Twitter profile, the first word that you have is Christian. Our mutual friend, Clay Clark, always references Matthew 5:10, “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Is your faith what’s keeping you sane in all of this? Is that what has chosen you to protect our country? Is that your purpose?
Every single day, I remind myself that God’s in control, that I’m not in control. The weight of the world isn’t on my shoulders. As a result, you become empowered to do what you’re called to do. Clay Clark talks about chapters in Matthew. I’m an Ephesians 2:10 guy, “We are God’s workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do works that God laid out before us.” We’re God’s masterpiece. We’ve been created for a purpose. I am blessed that I’ve been able to find that purpose. As a result, when things get hard and they do, I know that at least this is what I’m meant to be doing. You can’t be frustrated when you’re getting to do what you’re meant to do. You get frustrated when you’re not doing what you’re meant to be doing.
What’s more is I have behind my desk, my bookcases. I have pictures of my wife and other things. I’ve got a big wooden plaque that says, “Live dangerously for Christ.” Behind it, I’ve got a statue of Don Quixote, which is effectively what we’re called to do. We’re supposed to attack windmills and we’re supposed to try to do the impossible because to Christ all things are possible. We’re not supposed to limit ourselves based on what people say can be done. We’re supposed to figure out how to get done what is supposed to be done. Part of that is in how we live and how we refuse to be cowed by the conventions and say, “You can’t do stuff. You can’t accomplish it. You can’t achieve. It’s never been done that way.” Everybody in every walk of life faces that. It’s not just in politics. Everybody faces the, “It’s never been done that way,” people when you know there’s got to be a better way to do it. Every single great invention overcame somebody who said, “It’s never been done that way.” Don’t get trapped in the construct of what’s created for you by the world. Be in a construct of what’s created for you by Christ and by God.You can't be frustrated when you're doing what you're meant to do. @LimitGovt Click To Tweet
When I hear that from people and they say, “You can’t do that. That’s not been done.” That gives me power and encouragement to prove them wrong. It’s almost like, “Don’t you dare me because now I’m going to go do it. I’m going to put all my effort into it to prove you wrong.” It’s a great reminder.
We have to be bold. In politics, that translates to you having the media sit there and constantly telling you what you’re supposed to think. They’re trying to tell you what you can think, what you can say, what you can do. All they have is the money to be able to deliver their message. What they don’t have is anything that’s relational. Every single person reading this has relations with other people. You have more power with those people you have a relationship with than the media has with them. The internet or the air media just wants control. What they want to do is they want us to be defeated and feel like we can’t win. The historical imperative is on their side which is, “You’re on the wrong side of history,” which is Marxism. We’re not on the wrong side of history because we know God wins. They’re on the wrong side of history. The human heart longs for Freedom. We have a responsibility to reach that part of the human heart that says, “I want to be Free.” That is something we can bring to our neighbors or friends and others in a way that others can’t.
We only have a few weeks left to save the Freedom that we have. We’re going to focus on what it is that makes this country great and why is America worth saving. On the 3rd of November, it’s a major turning point. If Trump wins, we’re going to be okay. If Biden wins, it will never be the same. People are not realizing the destruction that’s going to happen. They think that their freedoms are being encroached because things are closed, they can’t go to church, and they have to wear a mask. That’s the tip of the iceberg. It’s a small fraction of what’s going to happen. I want people to understand what makes this country great and why it’s worth saving.
I might go on a little bit here so I can warn people in advance. America was founded under a principle that all men are created equal, endowed by our creator with certain inalienable rights among these, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Over time and the perfecting of our union, the word men has become people. It’s good that it’s become people but understand this. The fundamental principle of man, the DNA of America is that we are created equal by our creator, endowed by God and not government to certain inalienable rights, things they can’t take away from you. They are from God. They are yours. It’s not the governments to decide if you can exercise them or not. Going to church is one of those things. You have those inalienable rights to have as an individual.
Guess what? Every person created in the world has these individual rights. The difference is our government was founded on that principle that you are in charge, not the government. You have the power, not the government. Every other government on earth has been founded on the principle that the government is in charge and whatever you get to do, they let you do. That’s the fundamental fight we have now. The fundamental fight is whether you’re in charge or the government is in charge, our DNA is at stake. Let’s take the start of the Battle of Valley Forge. People don’t realize that about six months later, the dream of America was about to die. Our troops were freezing to death. They were under equipped. They had no money. Most of their contracts to be in the Army ended on January 1, 1977.
George Washington had a problem. He put his own money in to try to get clothes and food for the troops and he was constantly begging the Congress to provide resources, but it was dire and people were dying of disease and being cold. George Washington had a problem because the morale was low and people couldn’t wait to go home, resume their lives, and give up on this dream. He had an idea. He marched to the North and crossed the Delaware River on Christmas Eve and attacked Trenton where Hessians and other German mercenaries were. They were having a Christmas party and he attacked them. He won the Battle of Trenton and he saved the country because those same men who were frozen, cold and demoralized had achieved a victory. They saw the possibility that they could win.
They saw that they were able to stand up to the powerful European consort that was against them, Great Britain and then the hired Hessians. They won the battle and it invigorated them with spirit. George Washington brought in people to train his troops so they would be able to engage on a battlefield and know what they were doing against the most powerful army in the world. Over a course of years, America was free, but it was one man, George Washington, looking at an impossible situation and getting an idea, “Let’s get a victory,” and doing something which wasn’t done at the time, forwarding a river at night and attacking an opponent by surprise. As a result, routing the opponent, routing the enemy. That’s America. When faced with dire circumstances, we don’t cower, cry or kneel. We figure out a way to win and we do it.
If you go to Abraham Lincoln. He is sitting there in Gettysburg five months after the Battle of Gettysburg. The blood is practically still on the field. You can see the field is pockmarked with cannon fire. The places where people fell dead and stacked like cordwood. The cemetery was all around. There weren’t any statues up or anything like that. The buildings were all blown to bits or filled with mini bullet holes. The field was raw. The most famous orator at the time, who nobody remembers his name, gave a 1 1/2 hour speech about what happened on that battlefield. Abraham Lincoln got up and gave a speech about 400 words. It’s simple. It was about the essence of what those men died for. Tens of thousands of men have died. It starts with, “Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth a great nation, conceived in Liberty and dedicated to.” It’s a profound speech.
It’s simple. Take some time with your kids, your grandkids, your friends. Have them look at that speech. Talk to them about that speech and say, “When we get together this weekend, it’ll be a little different. We’re going to talk about and take a look at this speech.” Why was it important? You don’t have to know the story to know why it’s important. If you’re reading it, you’ll know why it’s important because it defines why equality is important in terms of equality of opportunity and being created equal. It’s the DNA of America.
Fast forward 80 years, we had General McAuliffe at Bastogne. They are surrounded by Germans in 1944. America had landed on Normandy and Omaha Beach and suffered grievous losses. The German Army was desperate to throw the Americans out to have a victory. They put all their eggs in one place. That was in Belgium, in a battle known as The Battle of the Bulge. General McAuliffe was in Bastogne. He was in charge of the 101st Airborne. Most people don’t realize, he was the acting General in Charge of the 101st Airborne. He was surrounded. The Germans sent an emissary to demand their surrender. What happened was McAuliffe took one look at the note and he said, “Nuts!” McAuliffe didn’t cuss. Unlike Patton, he was not a guy who ever cussed. The American generals were trying to figure out how to respond to the Germans by telling them no. Finally, after about half an hour, they put one word on a piece of paper. They put “Nuts!” and the German looked down and say, “What are you doing? You’re sending us legumes?” The general took him aside and he said, “It means go to hell.”
The Germans bombarded the 101st Airborne for four days. They didn’t send their tanks in because of the civilian casualties that would have occurred and they would have been massive. They attempted to take their will away through constant bombardment. Remember, they controlled the skies and we didn’t. Four days later, the Americans broke through to Bastogne resupplying the 101st Airborne. That moment, the German’s backs were broken at the Battle of the Bulge. From then on, the German army was in constant retreat until finally Berlin fell. “Nuts!” One man saying, “I’m not going to kneel. I’m not going to surrender. I’m going to stand for Freedom and you’ll have to kill me, but I will not kneel to you.”
We’ve seen that with Kennedy setting a site in 1961 when the Soviets were ahead of us in the space race. They were threatening to militarize space in a way that would have been an existential threat to the United States and to the world for that matter. He set a vision. He said, “We’re going to go to the moon by the end of the decade.” Now, in Washington DC, we can’t give a request for a proposal to be completed in a decade. We can’t get a military system up and running in twenty years. Think about this. We didn’t have handheld devices. For those of you reading who don’t know this, our computer systems would take up entire buildings for the capacity that exists in your hand now.
They used something called slide rules to figure out trajectories and figure out the math and how to do things. It was all manual. They figured out. They didn’t know, if you landed on the moon, what would happen? Was the moon covered with dust? They had theories but they didn’t know. We lost astronauts on the launching pads from the Apollo program where the rocket blew up on the launching pad. 1969, Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins flying the command capsule to the moon. Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong stood on the moon and they planted the American flag accomplishing the impossible in eight years.
Ronald Reagan said, “Gorbachev tear down this wall.” Gorbachev focused on that and thinks, “It’s inevitable that we’re going to win. That’s what they’re saying now.” Let me tell you what Gorbachev said and go to the Reagan Library sometime and read this. It’s amazing. Assuming that California doesn’t decide to leave the country and they have to move the Reagan Library. It was bitter cold in Reykjavik, Iceland when Gorbachev and Reagan met. It was so cold that Gorbachev bundled up in his best Moscow warm gear with furs and the like to keep him warm. He pulls up in his limo with his wife Raisa and he looks out the window, and there’s Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was taller than the average man his age, but he’s standing there firm in a suit, no jacket, no gloves, no scarf, no headgear.
Gorbachev reports he took one look and he said, “We can’t beat that man. We cannot beat America.” The message that Ronald Reagan gave to Gorbachev was, “We are resolute. We will not be deterred. We are for freedom. You can be with us or you could be against us, but you will not prevail.” One man standing in bitter cold sending a direct message to somebody who lived in a place which was bitter cold for him. That’s America. When we face the problems we have now, I want people to understand that throughout history, great people have made the difference between freedom and failure. Great people have stood up and in their own way, have inspired others to be the leaders that they needed to be, or to be the followers they needed to be, to use their influence with others the way it needed to be done.
I would argue that in this world, I don’t compare Donald Trump to Ronald Reagan, General McAuliffe, Lincoln, Kennedy, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson for that matter because he’s a unique person. I believe in this time and this trouble, there’s only one person who can step up and say, “We’re not doing it the way that’s always been done. We’re not going to continue giving our country away to China. We’re not going to sit there and accept that essentially America is to be cowered out for the benefit of the rest of the world.” We’ll stand up and say, “We’re not going to have our freedom of speech deterred by those who want to only allow the speech of the left to be allowed.” Trump is a person who isn’t a philosophical person. He’s a practical person. He doesn’t understand the machinations of Washington, DC. At least he didn’t.The human heart longs for freedom. We have a responsibility to reach that part of the human heart that says, 'I want to be free. @LimitGovt' Click To Tweet
He’s naive to it, but do you know what he didn’t know? He didn’t know what couldn’t be done and because he didn’t know what couldn’t be done, we’re having peace breaking out in the Middle East. All the experts said you had to go through the Palestinians to have peace. Palestinians don’t recognize Israel’s right to exist. It could never be the way through peace because the only way that you can get peace with them is to have Israel dead. What he said is, “We’re not going through the Palestinians. We’re not going through the Iranians. We’re going to go to the Arab States who are being attacked by the Iranians, who are essentially funding the Palestinians, and we’re going to go through them and we’re going to talk to them directly. We’re going to create peace deals for Israel that solidifies the region.”
Peace doesn’t have to come through the Palestinians. What’s happening now is the Palestinians are isolated. They’ve been isolated to such an extent that their Arab neighbors are saying to them, “You need to make a deal because if you don’t make a deal, there won’t be land left for you.” If Donald Trump is re-elected for the next four years, there will be peace in the Middle East because Saudi Arabia will sign a deal and the Palestinians will be isolated. He’s not doing it the way everybody else said it needed to be done. Government has a vested interest in the status quo. They spent years developing it. Biden is the status quo. You do not remember it, but he is.
The bottom line is the definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing the same way and expect a different result. Donald Trump does stuff in different ways. All the people in DC who have a vested interest in the way it was always done, hate him. They will do everything they can to bring down his government, bring down America’s government. The only thing that stands between them and success is us. We’ve watched Donald Trump fight for us for 3.5 years. These last 25 days before the election, it’s time for us to fight for him. I don’t mean punch people out, go into Portland and fight with Antifa. What I mean is the people who you can influence, the people who you know, the people who are your friends, the people who sit there and complain at the bar about the way things are but seemingly never vote, make sure they vote.
Don’t tell them, “I’m going to take you down so you can vote.” Be an active participant in this election. Do not allow people who would vote for the president to have regrets on November 4 that they didn’t do so. Every single person reading this has far more influence on the 5 to 10 people in your circle, sometimes more, than I do, than the president does, and anybody in the news media does. The question is are you going to be the person who exercises that influence and takes the risk that somebody you know and love may disappoint you? Maybe it’s on you because they disagree. If you’re not willing to take that risk for the country, what are you willing to take the risk for?
Since we’ve been in this battle, for the most part, everyone has already left you because they’re a liberal. I’ve had many friends that have unfriended me or don’t want to have a conversation anymore that I’ve been friends with for 15, 20 years. That’s fine. What am I going to do? You can’t control that. The only good part about that is most of those people are already gone. You don’t necessarily have to worry much that this time around you’re going to have a conversation and then they’re going to disappoint you. Try to think of it that way. For the most part, give people some encouragement to go have those conversations with their friends, their contacts, and their family members.
We need to step up to the plate. There’s a couple of weeks left. I don’t want to say do or die because we’re not going to die, but America’s going to die. If Biden wins, then everything’s going to change. Your Second Amendment is gone. The First Amendment is going to be drastically changed that you’re not going to recognize it. That’s a major point. If you don’t like Trump and his demeanor, you got to put that to the side because it’s not about him. It’s about us in this country. He’s the only person that can get anything accomplished and take us to the next level because he doesn’t do it the way that the entire city of Washington DC runs. That’s the only way that we’re going to be able to keep this country moving forward because there’s such a strong force against it. You need somebody like him who’s going to say whatever he needs to say and not care what somebody thinks because he’s going to get backlash no matter what. He could cure cancer, they’ll find a problem with it. He knows that. He doesn’t have to do this.
The part that I respect most about him is that he can do whatever he wants. He didn’t have to get into this. When they say it was his ego, I don’t think it was. He saw a problem. He knew he’s a problem solver and he loves this country. He wanted to give back because it did so much for him. You met him before, and every single person that I’ve met that has been around him or the way that you see him come off on television is not who he is. Maybe you want to go into that a little bit to talk about his personality and his real passion for this country and people as opposed to, “I don’t like his demeanor or tone.” I’m tired of the word tone. I don’t want to hear that ever again.
The best way to describe it is I would rather have a brawler for this country than a statesman who doesn’t get anything done. Donald Trump understands that the battle he’s in is a brawl. The other side doesn’t play by any rules. They have state moderators who are objectively on the other side. The USA Today moderator in the Pence-Harris debate is writing a book with Nancy Pelosi. Let’s be clear. The debate moderator who’s supposed to be in the next one was an intern for Joe Biden. Does anybody think that this debate commission is saying, “We’re fighting fair and balanced to debate moderators?” They’re not doing that. Donald Trump understands after spending 3.5 years discovering that the entirety of the intelligence establishment in this country is trying to conduct a coup against his presidency.
He understands the battle he’s in. Excuse me if I’m not concerned that he’s a street brawler. If he wasn’t a street brawler, they would have broken him in the last 3.5 years. More significantly than that because personality is a personality. I want people to understand a simple thing. Joe Biden said that he wasn’t going to tell the American public whether he was going to pack the Supreme Court or not. For those people who are not aware of what packing the Supreme Court is, essentially what it means is one side decides that we’re not going to get the judicial decisions that we want out of the court. We’re going to add a bunch more judges onto the Supreme Court so we have a majority of the judges who on our side.
There’s nothing in the constitution that says they can’t do that. The constitution doesn’t define how many justices are on the Supreme Court. What Joe Biden and the Senators are talking about is a direct attempt to overturn the results of the Trump presidency and victories by Republicans in presidential elections over the years, which has resulted in, once Amy Barrett has been confirmed, six justices who purportedly lean to the right. I’m not going to say Justice Roberts does. What that means is by adding justices, the Democrats are saying, “We want the court to be nothing more than a rubber stamp for whatever we want to do.” That’s why this is so important. Joe Biden, who’s been in politics for 47 years, who was the Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, presumably understands what this means. He doesn’t want you to know what he would do under those circumstances. What they are going to do is they are going to eliminate the independence of the judiciary with one fell swoop so they could pass whatever they wanted to and call it constitutional. You now have to understand why this election is important and different.
The other side, the left, will not accept that we exist. They have made that clear and they will not accept the concepts laid out in the judiciary as three co-equal branches of government, where you have a judicial branch that can defend the constitution when the executive and the legislative branches aren’t. They’re going to eliminate that. They’re going to eliminate the filibuster in the Senate. It is simple. You eliminate it by eliminating the Senate rule. You need 60 votes to pass the legislation. They will eliminate the filibuster because they want to create two new states, DC and Puerto Rico, which will give them four democratic senators with an attempt to ensure that they never lose control of the Senate again. Why do they want to do that? It’s simple.
Let’s say the Democrats have 51 votes in the Senate and they eliminate the filibuster. It allows them to not have Joe Manchin and other Democrats or the Conservative Senators have to vote on anything that says, “That’s crazy,” because they’ll have 50 crazies plus the vice president. If they add two states, 52 crazies plus the vice president. That’s the objective. The objective is to be able to cover it up and allow more conservative hearings. The Democrats will cover their tracks while still doing crazy stuff. You’ll have socialized medicine, guaranteed. You will have laws that will continue the shutdowns that we’re seeing now and there’s nothing that anybody will be able to do about them. I was an NRA lobbyist for nine years. You will have your Second Amendment stripped. They’ll say they’re only going to go after certain guns. The fact of the matter is they’ll go after all your guns.
The Heller decision was 5 to 4. You pack the court, the Heller decision is gone. You have no individual right to keep and bear arms. You’ll be declared as the militia and the National Guard is the militia, not you. Suddenly you have no individual rights to keep and bear arms in spite of over 240 years of history. That’s what at stake here. Do you want to go to church? The governors and states are telling you that you can’t go to church unless the government approves it. If you like that, you’re going to love having the federal government telling you, you can’t go to church unless they approve it. Guess what they’re not going to do? They’re not going to approve of going to churches where you could teach the Bible because the idea that there’s sin in the world is hate speech. They’re going to tear out entire pages of the Bible and say, “You can say what you want to. You can’t say that Jesus is the way, the truth of life. He’s the only way to the father… it’s through his son,” as Jesus said in John 14:6. You can’t say that because that’s exclusionary.
You won’t be able to say that homosexuality is a sin as defined in the Bible. That’s exclusionary, that’s hate speech. Apart from being able to talk about what’s in the Bible and being able to preach what’s in the Bible, you’ll be able to go to church. As long as the text of the pastors’ sermons are approved by the government. If you love China, we’re moving there because that’s what our country will become. If you love China, you’re going to like the Biden presidency. Not only is Joe Biden financially tied up with China through his son, Hunter, but Kamala Harris’s husband, Doug Emhoff is a partner in DLA Piper, the law firm that was doing the China deals along with members who were part of the DLA Piper firm who were part of the People’s Liberation Army of China, The Communist Party Army in China.
His job was to do intellectual property in China, which means transfer US intellectual property to China. You have nobody who’s more conflicted in China than Kamala Harris. Do you expect them to put America first? Put you first? I don’t think so. It’s a stark choice. Everybody gets to make it. Every one of us gets to decide what we’re going to do. This is a free country. We need to demand fair elections and proper elections. We need to make certain that people aren’t voting more times than they should. We need poll watchers to contact your local parties and say, “I want to be a poll watcher. I want to make sure that the elections are safe. That they’re fair.” If we lose and the majority of Americans legitimately pick the other side, then we fight like crazy. It’s hard to imagine a scenario where we come back, but America will at least choose honestly.
That’s where I want to say have faith, but we know that the Democrats are going to cheat. Extra ballots are going to show up because it happens every election and we’re not exaggerating that. That’s actually factual information. It’s a matter of getting enough people to go to the polls so the votes in the electoral college win in favor of Trump on the 3rd. They’re going to have a huge battle in the courts. They’re going to have large amounts of “found” ballots and God only knows how that’s going to turn out. If we can do our part to have the election won on the 3rd, then we’ve done all we can. Start praying hard it goes in our favor.Every person created in the world has these individual rights. @LimitGovt Click To Tweet
Let me give you a simple fact for those of you who go to church, 58% of people who go to church part or full-time voted in the 2016 election. The average voter turnout is over 70%. Churchgoers turn out at significantly lower rates than non-churchgoers.
I think that there are some people who go to church, sit there and say, “I believe in God, not in government,” and they’re right. They don’t see why they should be involved in government. There’s some Christian background to that. We’re no longer talking about passive, benign government. We’re talking about the government to decide whether you can go to church. I’ve never been able to say that before without it being a tinfoil hat. The fact is we see that all over the country. This is no longer hypothetical. This is real. If you go to church, you can talk to people and get the turnout in your church to be 70% to 75%. You don’t even have to tell them why they should turn out in terms of getting them to say, “I’m voting for Donald Trump or for Joe Biden.” You don’t have to get that done because 75% of the people who go to church are going to vote for Donald Trump. You’re going to get 3 out of 4 of the people who you get from your church, on average, are going to vote for Donald Trump in this election. It’s up to you to provide them with the information so they understand what’s at stake in the election so they can compare and contrast, but you don’t even have to tell them that you support Donald Trump.
All you have to do is get them to see Trump stands for X, Y, and Z. You can talk about abortion. You can talk about any number of faith issues. You can say what Biden agrees with. Biden is Roman Catholic. He’s playing that up hard in the Roman Catholic community, but the fact is, the Roman Catholic church still is for life. That should be easy to explain. It’s even worse than the idea of choice here. What Kamala Harris and Joe Biden have agreed to in terms of abortion is they have opposed the ending of late-term abortion. Even if you buy the clump of cells argument, which we know isn’t true, nobody agrees with Governor Ralph Northam or Governor Cuomo from New York who almost signed a bill that allows a baby to be killed after it’s born.
I can’t get my arms around it. I get that they say, “It’s a women’s choice,” but it’s alive. You cannot debate when life starts. As a doctor or even a mother, how could you do that? There’s got to be something wrong with you mentally, spiritually and emotionally. There’s no way to explain it.
Governor Ralph Northam of Virginia is a doctor. On tape he said that if a baby was born and was disabled, they would leave the baby on the table and have a discussion with the mother about what to do. Can you imagine the evil that it takes to do that? That’s what’s at stake. This isn’t hard. You don’t have to get into deep philosophical discussions. Everybody agrees, except for the radical few, that killing a baby after it’s born is wrong. Killing a baby that would live and be viable on its own outside the mother’s womb is wrong. Kamala Harris and Joe Biden support killing babies who were viable. You don’t have to have a discussion about lumps of cells and all that stuff that the left wants us buying into.
How many discussions about a seven-month-old baby have you heard about that when everybody sees the sonograms, they say, “This is what they want. This is who they want to kill.” I was born in seven months. I was barely viable. I was in an incubator for a few weeks trying to get me more viable. I’m not sure they fully succeeded, but from a practical perspective, any preemie is eligible to be killed after the birth. Even a full-term baby is eligible to be killed in New York if it’s viewed as being flawed in some way because abortion is a right. As long as the umbilical cord is still attached, that baby is still attached to the mother. That’s the rationale. This is an important thing. Evil is evil. You have to stand up against it.
That’s the perfect word. Evil. It’s evil because there’s no other way to explain it. If the mother doesn’t want the baby, there are tens of thousands of people out there, parents or people who want to be parents that would love to adopt a baby. They wait for years. There are homes for the baby. People want to love the baby and take care of it. That’s the other part that I can’t get my arms around. If there were no resources, no nothing, then still killing is wrong, but maybe that’s where you could say, “That’s their logic,” which there is no logic. If you don’t want the baby, that’s okay. There are places where people do want the baby. Give it away. It’s easy to do. They even tell you now, “If you don’t want your baby and you just had it, drop it off at a fire station.” It’s almost like taking the garbage out to the curb. It means there’s evil with that doctor or that person who think it’s okay. If you knew you could drop it off somewhere and still choose to kill the baby, that’s evil and that’s the direction we’re headed.
That’s what’s on the ballot. There are a lot of things on the ballot. Your job, livelihood, education, freedom are on the ballot.
You’ll be poor.
Your future grandchild is on the ballot. You asked initially about Donald Trump’s character and stuff. Let me share a quick thing that I personally saw. I was in a meeting where the government shut down at some point. It was in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, which is off the Oval Office. Vice President Pence and Jared Kushner were there. A lot of the staff that you guys would know were there. The few of us were around the table and Donald Trump comes in and he had just seen the Ralph Northam video. He went off for twenty minutes in a way that only Donald Trump can talk about how evil it was, how unbelievable it was.
For all those people who think, “He’s this New York City developer, playboy. I don’t relate to him because he’s had multiple wives and he’s not living the Christian life.” Let’s be clear. He doesn’t take drugs. I want you to know that when Donald Trump saw that video, he was outraged and upset. He said, “They’re killing babies. They say it’s okay to kill babies. These people are nuts.” I saw the heart of the man. He’s a decent man. He understands what evil is and he understands what good is. If God needed all the leaders to be perfect, David would have been in real trouble. Know that you can be a man after God’s own heart and still have sinned in ways that you and I can’t imagine as David did. Donald Trump, I saw his heart at that moment and he understands good and evil.
He’s going to protect that. That’s what you have to keep in mind.
He’s going to fight like crazy for it because he understands it.
He’s been doing it. He’s been fighting all the obstacles that they have thrown at him. There’s almost nothing left that they could possibly do to try to stop this man from making this country better for every American in every single way. There’s nobody on this planet that could have put up with all of this crap from every direction that he gets. There’s not one person on this planet that could have put up with it and still go to work every day and not completely either quit or have a mental breakdown. You have somebody who’s strong and that’s because he’s supposed to be doing it. The Prophet Kim Clement said he was sent from God. You say that and then people look at you funny. The strength that he has, the passion, and the endurance, not a lot of people have that. To be able to continue to put up with what he does and still keep going, because he’s fighting for our freedom, our liberty, and our country.
In terms of things that people can do, you can always pray for our country. Pray for Donald Trump. Pray for Melania. Pray for the Vice-President. Pray for Nancy Pelosi. Pray that her heart gets broken for Christ. Pray that her heart gets broken away from evil because. God can do anything. These prayers are not partisan prayers, but these prayers are beseeching God to continue to bless America. For all objective reasons that you look around and you see what our country has become, God is still willing to bless America. Pray that he gives us another chance. If God is not blessing America, the rest of it doesn’t matter. For those of you who are religiously inclined, that is something you can do and don’t the other stuff, at the bare minimum, pray for our nation. Pray for the President and pray for strength and for our nation, for the people who are choosing our leaders to do wisely and say, “God is in control.” He likes getting the polling data from the public. Weigh-in and let Him know what to think.Evil is evil. You have to stand up against it. @LimitGovt Click To Tweet
I think you’re right on. It’s almost like He’s testing us, “Do you guys want this? I’ll make it happen but you’ve got to show me you care. You got to show me that you believe in it and you want it because if you do take it for granted, I’m not going to put the effort in. If you’re not going to, then why should I? You’ve got to show me that you want it and I’ll make it happen. I’ll take care of all these crazy people on the left. You don’t have to worry about them. You got to be in it. You got to have skin in the game. Otherwise, why should I spend my time if you guys aren’t going to do your part?”
That’s what we need to do now. We have to do our part. We have to talk to our friends, get them out to vote. Go vote because there’s no reason why you can’t go to the polls. I don’t care what you see on the news, TV or what you hear. Go vote for Trump on November 3rd, because it’s up to us. If we don’t make this happen, it’s over. Now you think masks, shut downs and not being able to go to church, that’s only state control. You said it earlier. It’s a million times worse when it’s federal control. America’s over. Anything else, Rick, before we go?
This is simple. Get on your knees and pray for the country. Ask God what you should be doing to help this country and do it. It’s simple when you break it down.
Do your part people. It’s time. Read this again. Maybe what you need is a little reminder. I’ll give you a quick personal story. When I was doing the outline, I was doing my intro and I literally took a couple of hours because I got into it. As I was typing and sharing what I felt, it empowered me. I was like, “This is what I’ve been thinking. This is what I say,” but when I put it in print and then I read it, I said, “I’ve got to do something.” That’s why I’m amped-up and emotional. I know the direction that it can go and what’s going to happen if Trump doesn’t win. When I typed it all out and then read it, I said, “This is real.” It gave me the incentive and the power now to go do something. Maybe that’s what people need to do. Even if you only have five minutes, do it for five minutes. As you said, Gettysburg address. You want people to listen to that. You need that one little something to connect with then things will look different. It happened to me. It takes five minutes and think about it and then go do something, get involved.
I’d like to close this with the middle part of a speech I gave. You were kind enough to urge me to mention it because it was designed for encouragement that we can make a difference. Understand a simple thing. The most common phrase in the Bible is being unafraid, don’t be afraid, fear not, put in a lot of different ways. Be strong and courageous. Understand that everyone feels fear. Courage is overcoming fear. God tells us not to be paralyzed by fear. Recognizing that we all feel it. Do not be afraid. Encourage others who are afraid because all encouragement is, is giving courage to others. We all have that. Also, your venturing into strange areas is scary. Be not afraid for the Lord, my God is with me.
Do you know what’s trending on Twitter? Trust in the Lord. When does Lord ever trend on Twitter or God? It’s a sign.
People, have fun, enjoy life and know that God is with you. Do what God would have you do. Even those who are not religiously inclined to understand that freedom is at stake in this election. Don’t be afraid to fight for it because if not you, who?
Rick, I appreciate you coming on. It was an extremely moving and powerful message and episode. I would have to say that I’m looking forward to coming back in November to celebrate. We can look back at this and go, “We did it and we’re going to be okay.” Rick Manning, Americans for Limited Government. It’s crazy that you even need to have an organization named Americans for Limited Government because isn’t that what this whole thing was based on?
I appreciate coming on. Anytime you want me, I’m more than happy to join you.
America, you got this.

About Americans for Limited Government
Americans for Limited Government achieves its vision by fighting to reduce the size and scope of government, protecting individuals rights, promoting federalism, and rolling back the tyranny of the administrative state. This will put America first, foster free enterprise, and restore the rule of law.
We are leaders in identifying and exposing unique issues from the limited government perspective, and working with Congress and state legislatures to prevent the continued expansion of government.
This aggressive, non-partisan approach to the threats posed by an ever expanding government to our basic freedoms gives us the ability to honestly present the limited government perspective both inside the beltway and most importantly around the country.
We focus on fiscal responsibility, regulatory reform, transparency and shedding light on overlooked issues that impact people’s lives. As a principled and independent organization, we hold both sides of the aisle accountable. Although Americans for Limited Government is modest in size, it punches above its weight. Its influence can be seen in numerous pieces of legislation and its broad media coverage.
