Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza recently gave a speech at Liberty University in which he laid out very clearly why conservatives and Christians should vote for Donald Trump in November.
Dinesh D’Souza Dropped the Mic on ‘Never Trump’ Christians
There is a distinct difference between intentions and consequences, he said. And while a Christian might act out of the purest of intentions, it can still result in terrible consequences. He used the struggle of the abolitionist movement in the mid-1800s as his example, saying abolitionists—until they aligned with the Republican Party—spent much of their time burning copies of the Declaration of Independence and Constitution and criticizing the Founding Fathers for allowing slavery to begin with.
And even when they achieved their greatest victory, they did so with a president—Abraham Lincoln—who himself was not an abolitionist.
D’Souza then turned his speech to the topic of the 2016 presidential race. Those who choose not to vote in the 2016 election, are still—in essence—voting for Hillary Clinton, he said.
“You need to know that a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote to swing the balance of the Supreme Court, virtually irrevocably, against us,” he said. “A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote to not only permit, but bring in federal subsidies for abortion. A vote for Hillary is a vote to put religious freedom, already precarious, into a much more endangered position, because the checks and balances of what would normally block the government are themselves being eroded. And you are voting for a regime in which justice becomes increasingly discretionary, as I saw terrifyingly in my own case.
“In Hillary’s America, I think it is an illusion to think that we as conservatives, as Christians, can retreat into our private spaces, drive our pickup truck to school or work, pray in church, and they will leave us unmolested. They will not do that. They have no intention of doing that.
Watch the video. This is amazing:

D’Souza is exactly right.
If Christians and conservatives sit out this election, everything they cherish will be lost.
