Again, The Obvious is not Necessarily the OBVIOUS

Reader comment on item: [Symposium] What Conservative Historians Are Saying about Trump's First 100 Days
in response to reader comment: 666 - the obvious, THE OBVIOUS

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), May 9, 2017 at 13:06

As the previous response did not necessarily and specifically answer your embedded question [Now, I will ask a few questions of you as a Christian. Do we actually WANT Trump to carry out his agenda(?).]
The Scribe's (Lawyer's) answer is: that depends. The legitimate (taxpaying) American electorate back in November FINALLY got up some gumption and told the (Democratic and Republican)institutionalists: ENOUGH. They used ideas of the proposed Trump Presidency to make their point; and American politics has not been the same since. Citing a 'Trump' agenda, does that electorate get what it wants? That answer is obvious: no; the American electorate that tipped the ship of state off of its keel has not been appropriated respected by the swamp creature Congress.
Like the Krakken of lore, the tentacles are as firmly entangled as ever and like the obstinacy we saw in the previous administration, the ship of state will have the devil in the details and course corrections are not all that well accepted. But do we get to blame President Trump for that?
Again, dependent upon the frame of reference, the pundit answers range from negligible acceptance to outright outrage that he even won and the efforts to delegitimize continue at the expense of defeating his agenda. Irrespective of unfounded speculations of inappropriate world class connections with globalists' remaking of an imperial world, the Christian answer is not in whom we think is going to take down the world; but the obvious Christian focus is better targeted on the real agenda already spoken of by the prophets: there one finds the Christian answer; and it is not based on what President Trump is going to do, but what the LORD is going to do.
