    A vote for trump is a vote for stupidity and violence.

    Trump's reputation for getting righteous things done?? You're kidding, right? And which CO2 emission chart are you looking at? The one predicted before he rolled back all manner of environmental protections or the one coming up?

    And what do you mean you "hope it can be shown to me in the order"? Again I ask, did you read it?? He's setting up a council to TALK about planting trees, not planting trees.

    Then why would one support a man who spews hate on a regular basis? Jesus said to "Love one another as I have loved you", not "Call people names and assume they're guilty, and it's all fine and dandy to be hedonistic and materialistic, plus maybe have a prostitute or two on the side and it's OK to grope women...". That sounds much more "Satanic" than Christ-like.

    Because we are grateful for his good policies anyway.

    OK giving that he promised it and now has made the order (executive order) I seriously doubt it won't get done.

    :facepalm: Maybe third time's the charm? Did you read where he's going to set up a council to TALK about trees? He's good at talking (and setting up groups whose advice he ignores), so, like you, I also seriously doubt that all that talking won't get done. Which I keep trying to point out is not the same as PLANTING TREES! Now, done here. Over and out on this.

    You are missing the important information of what Trump been actually doing. He has increased the cutting of national forest trees opening them to companies for logging. This 1.2 trillion tree planting is a desperate political move just before the election. His entire presidency has been destructive to national forests with increased logging and his environmental policies are contributing to climate change in direct opposition to what this proposal is about. His record gives you the reality of his intentions not just a bill which is only just a paper. He had 4 years to make a difference and he did the opposite.

    We need to rejoin the world effort to stop climate change not withdraw from the world effort to control climate change. Trump cannot join, he only knows how to divide.

    Most of the violence occurred in Democrat controlled territory so it kind of defeats the premise that a vote otherwise would make any kind of difference.

    So, not being pro-life is more moral than his other supposed "good policies"?

    Seems like you're looking for convenient ways out of actually sticking to the Gospel, I hate to say. Jesus condemned that as being hypocritical, much like he blamed so many of the Pharisees for exactly the same thing namely, to put it in modern terminology, they would talk-the-talk but not be willing to walk-the-walk. There's no excuse under the Gospel to support leaders who are hedonistic, materialistic, dishonest, and who couldn't care less about saving human life other than his own as we've repeatedly seen with Trump.

    If it's money that's more important than the Gospel, then that's one's real "god".

    Trump’s COVID response has been lacking. It’s not enough to put it on the governors. There are some additional things he could have done at a national level. That said, I don’t believe all the criticism is justified.

    Atleast they are liberals, where as republicans flat out conserve violence.

    Don't see riots in Republican states. I could be wrong though if one could be pointed out.

    And so, inconvenient reality gets set aside in service of the Narrative once again.
