If Trump’s the Nominee I’m Withholding My Vote


By: Susan Bea Good

I worked hard for Mitt Romney in 2012. When he lost and the stats came out that millions of Evangelicals withheld their votes from the Republican candidate I reacted with a blog entitled, “Withheld Votes.” Later I apologized to my fellow Conservatives over the post, as I came to realize their legitimate objection to participating in the election of an “objectionable” man.

This week it’s looking like half of those who identify as Conservative are planning to cast their Primary vote for Donald Trump. I am unable to see their justification.

To this date Phyllis Shafley, Willie Robertson, Jerry Falwell Jr, Sarah Palin, Rev. Robert Jeffress, and Sheriff Joe Arpaio have all endorsed Trump for President. Again, I am unable to see their justification.

I will not vote for the “lesser of two evils! I also do not subscribe to the argument that Trump would be “better than what we have now.” I have decided that I will never vote for a man like Donald Trump. That means even if he becomes the Republican nominee against the Democrat, Sanders or Clinton, I will NOT vote for Trump-2016!

(The brave prophet Jeremiah) “This evil people…who stubbornly follow their own heart and have gone after other gods to serve them and worship them, shall be like this loincloth, which is good for nothing.” (Jeremiah 13:10/ESV)

This blogger’s purpose is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it. Adonai Eloheinu!
