God wants Scott Walker to be President

Scott Walker Says His Presidential Bid Is ‘God’s Plan’
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker will have a launch event later today in Waukesha, has sent an email to activists declaring that his presidential run “is God’s plan for me."
“My relationship with God drives every major decision in my life," starts the note, which is clearly designed to appeal to Religious Right voters who make up a major part of the GOP base vote, particularly in the early primary states Iowa and South Carolina.
The letter goes on to talk about Walker’s faith as “the guiding force of my life in both politics and in private" and promotes opposition to reproductive choice and marriage equality. “A lifelong supporter of the pro-life movement, my work defending the unborn goes back to my college days where I was a leader of Marquette Students for Life," he writes, bragging about signing into law new restrictions on access to abortion and pledging to do the same as president. He calls the Supreme Court’s marriage equality decision a “grave mistake" and calls for a constitutional amendment to overturn it. And he pledges to nominate Supreme Court justices who share his approach to the Constitution.
“Our country is at a crossroads and we need a proven conservative leader who is not afraid to fight for what is right – even when it’s not politically expedient," Walker says. “My decisions are guided by my relationship with God – not by what might win me a few votes."
Among those decisions are Walker’s moves to savage public education in his new budget.
The full letter follows:
Peter,
My relationship with God drives every major decision in my life. Each day I pray and then take time to read from the Bible and from a devotional named Jesus Calling.
As you can imagine, the months leading up to my announcement that I would run for President of the United States were filled with a lot of prayer and soul searching.
Here’s why: I needed to be certain that running was God’s calling – not just man’s calling. I am certain: This is God’s plan for me and I am humbled to be a candidate for President of the United States.
Now, it is up to the voters to decide who will win the election. If you support my conservative campaign, please join my team right now with $10, $35, $50, $100, or even $250 today.
As the son of a Baptist preacher, my faith comes first. It is the guiding force of my life both in politics and in private. For example, I believe in the sanctity of life. I believe in the covenant of marriage. I believe in strong families. I believe in protecting religious liberties. And I believe these things are worth fighting for – and I have.
A lifelong supporter of the pro-life movement, my work defending the unborn goes back to my college days where I was a leader of Marquette Students for Life. As a state lawmaker, I helped write and pass legislation banning the barbaric practice of partial-birth abortion. As Governor of Wisconsin, I prohibited abortion from being covered by Wisconsin health plans in a health insurance exchange, signed an ultrasound bill into law, and defunded Planned Parenthood while maintaining health services for women throughout Wisconsin.
Earlier this year, I called for legislation to protect unborn children once they can feel pain at five months. The members of the State Legislature just passed the bill and I will sign it into law next week. Yet another pro-life victory here in Wisconsin!
If elected President, I would be honored to sign similar legislation at the federal level. I was raised to believe in the sanctity of life and I will always fight to protect it.
Please stand with me today to help elect a pro-life President.
Our conservative values were handed a big blow with the recent Supreme Court ruling. Let me be very clear: this decision was a grave mistake. Five unelected judges took it upon themselves to take that responsibility away from the states and redefine the institution of marriage.
In 2006, I voted to amend my state constitution to protect the institution of marriage because I believe that marriage is between one man and one woman.
I believe that the states have the right to define marriage.
To protect this right, I support an amendment to the United States Constitution to reaffirm the ability of the states to continue to define marriage.
Going forward, we need to focus our attention on protecting the religious rights of Americans. Our U.S. Constitution calls for freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. The founders of this exceptional country took religious freedom very seriously and we must redouble our efforts to protect these freedoms today.
Peter, I have been a tireless advocate for religious liberty. And my state’s families and children are better off because of our pro-life, pro-family agenda that promotes life, freedom, and opportunity.
As President, I will stand up for these same values. And I will appoint men and women to the Court who will faithfully uphold the Constitution – without injecting their own political agendas into legal matters.
Our country is at a crossroads and we need a proven conservative leader who is not afraid to fight for what is right – even when it’s not politically expedient. My decisions are guided by my relationship with God – not by what might win me a few votes.
I am proud to have earned the early support of conservative and religious activists across the country and hope to earn your support today. Visit here to become a leader of our conservative team with a contribution of $10, $35, $50, $100, $250, or whatever amount is right for you.
Every day I pray that our best days of peace, prosperity, and freedom are ahead of us. As President, I will uphold the traditional values that have made our country great, but I need your help to win.
Your enthusiastic support will help us build much-needed momentum in these early weeks as we take our conservative message to voters across the country.
God bless you and God bless America,
Scott Walker

It’s not God that wants Scott Walker to be POTUS. That is impossible because God does not exist. Now the Koch brothers do exist and they want Scott Walker to be President and they may be sort of like gods to Scott.
But to the poor saps that might be thinking of sending in $5, $10, $20, etc. I would suggest, Don’t! Buy a six-pack or a case of beer, sit back, watch Nascar, and let the god-like Koch brothers provide the funding – they can afford to throw some money away.

The title of the thread was supposed to be sarcastic. But it does reflect what Scott Walker is claiming. And far to many people in this country have no objection to such a notion. Many will agree with him, he being such a good Christian, and all. Lois

And really, the “beauty” of the situation is that you KNOW he doesn’t for a second believe what he’s writing.

I believe God wants Scott Walker to be president. Just like he sent a plague of locusts to the Pharoah’s Egypt. He wants to punish us for being hateful and stupid, and Walker is one of the leaders of that group.

I think that we humans are quite capable of inflicting such "plagues" of unnecessary punishment on ourselves. No need to blame a mythical God. In fact, Scott Walker, seems to be bringing the mythical God into it, to help insure that he may have the opportunity to inflict such a "plague".

Not only is God a jealous god but he’s sadistic too because he told no less than 6, count em’ 6 GOP candidates that he wants them to run. Actually god told me via his angel Gabriel ( I had to wear special glasses and a saffron robe while spinning around seven times, boy was I dizzy) that he’s waiting for the debate on Mon. Then he’s dropping the bomb on all of them and choosing Trump. He likes Trump because he’s a mysogenist, hates gays, abortion, planned parenthood, and thinks the Pope is a Commie. God’s mad at Frank for not smiting the poor, because they are after all cursed, whereas the rich and powerful are blessed.

If you think about it, it's sort of odd that the mythical God, didn't "tell" some of the other 10 to run. The Republican constituency is pretty full of people who are oriented toward believing without evidence, so why should any of the Repub candidates not follow the standard procedure of making outlandish, unsubstantiated claims that their constituency simply wants to hear and believe? I can see a few of the repub candidates, trying to stake a claim on their minority of constituents who are somewhat rational, but 10? Maybe the other 10 are simply afraid to "push their luck" with all of the other ridiculous false claims that they make. But strategically speaking, that seems a poor practice, to me. If you're going to make false claims, make them big and make them often. That's working well for Donald, at the moment, and it has worked well for the Repubs, in general, for some time now.
And really, the "beauty" of the situation is that you KNOW he doesn't for a second believe what he's writing.
I'm not so sure. People like Walker have a way of convincing themselves that their vision of god exists and is on their side, waiting for the Walkers of the world to save it. Lois

That sums up the Repblican attitude to a T.

God changed his/her mind. :lol:

God changed his/her mind. :lol:
Or as I think it was the New Yorker put it: the Koch brothers returned their merchandise. I just hope the RNC takes back their Rewards points too.

Yes but remember, two down and fourteen to go before the Reps. Finally decide which one of their ultraconservative,deeply religious, super patriotic, Pope hating, gun loving candidates will take on the Democratic candidate. The clown car is still on the road and Trump’s still the driver. I predict Ben Carson will be the next to bail. His Anti-Islamic comment may sink his chances.
