W. James Antle III has chastised the Christian conservative voter with his article “Left Behind” for not stepping in earlier to promote a Republican candidate compatible with our beliefs.
In my view, it is not our job to drive the Republican Party in any direction. We are more like customers. In other words, Christian voters are not as tied to the party as the Republicans think. The point that Mr. Antle misses is that we have a higher authority. Faith is the driving motivation for the Christian conservative.
When Ronald Reagan ran for President, we had someone who appeared to share our beliefs. We supported him mainly due to his strong inner core values. Since then, the Republican Party has assumed that we would be a solid part of their base no matter what. They could treat us as the Democrats treat their base.

Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
