When I first came to RedState a few years ago, I frequently wrote about the internal struggle I fought with respect to living out my faith in the political public square. I was politically ignorant and naive in many ways and came here to learn and contribute, somehow, someway, to helping our crumbling, deteriorating nation be restored to her former glory.
Now, nearly three years later, I seem to have hit another brick wall. I feel utterly hopeless and it seems all of my efforts are for naught. The only solutions I can come up with are the early lessons I learned in my feeble attempts to serve the one I love more than any man — Jesus — and the political world seems as disinterested in this as they were when I started.

Look no further than this devastating ad released by Arkansas Democrat Connor Eldridge. It’s no taking words out of context. It’s not inferring things from what Donald Trump has said. It | Read More »
