    Rebekah,
    Fascinating take on the Trump phenomena. Only problem I see is that if you reject Trump you end up with Cruz who is somewhat of a snake in the grass. While Trump could be impeached quickly should he win, Cruz would establish a heavy handed oligarchy with him in charge. I’m sure there is a biblical analogy for hits as well. So it goes.

    The past seven years of incompetent ideologically driven executive administration operating above it’s pay grade have been a utter disaster for this nation. Given a choice between Trump or Cruz, either one is head and shoulders a superior choice over a national self-inflicted disaster in the form of Clinton…or Sanders. Glittering generalities, pie in the sky promises, hysterical hyping of vast conspiracies by political opponents, fear mongering about supposed wars on whichever demographic is needed for political support, bread and circuses, etc., etc., etc., these are the stock in trade of Clinton

    Rebekah–
    Thank you for this meditation, which challenges us to address secular concerns through the lens of ancient faiths which hold together a common understanding of how peoples must govern themselves.

    Those who build the golden calf do it with other peoples money. So that wouldn’t be Trump. All the candidates are egotistical bullies. When it comes to lying certainly Trump comes in a poor third to Hillary and Cruz. Hillary wants us to be a communist/socialist country. Cruz wants us to be a theocracy, plus he has no executive experience. We all know how that worked out the last 7 years — not good. Sanders is just in there so it looks like a race and not a coronation
    I would consider Cruz except for his Seven Mountain Dominion indoctrination. That and he always sounds like he is preaching when he speaks. All the candidates are seriously flawed but Trump is the only one I see who wants to restore American values and put America first. For me that gives him the edge. All I can say if it isn’t Trump v Hillary I hope there is a third party candidate. I don’t think I can bring myself to vote for Hillary, Bernie, or Cruz or a GOP establishment candidate.
