Albert Mohler: This Is No Time for Indecision

This is no time for indecision. The battle for the future of the Supreme Court means that Republicans cannot fumble their responsibility to win confirmation of a new justice before Election Day.

President Donald Trump has pledged to nominate a new justice quickly, and he indicated that he will appoint a woman to fill the seat left by the death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has proven his ability to get President Trump’s nominees through the confirmation process.

Many will be calling on senators to wait until after the election, but Republican senators have better remember that voters will hold them accountable if they fail at this stewardship.

Brace yourselves for an epic political battle, then tell Republican senators that you will never forget how they handle this challenge

Lanhee Chen: The Choice This November Is Clear

Both the Democratic and Republican National Conventions have ended, and Election Day is coming quickly.

Here’s what we know about the fall campaign. It will feature a true contrast in ideas and ideology.

Joe Biden has made clear that he believes in a dramatically more powerful federal government that will play a bigger role in everything from health care to energy policy. The power with Democrats today doesn’t lie with moderate leaders who want incremental change. No, it’s with far-left progressives like Bernie Sanders who are looking to transform America.

You don’t have to agree with everything Donald Trump says and does to recognize that his vision is very different. He wants a freer America, one where Washington gets out of our way. Trump’s policies will work to boost our economy, make health care more affordable, and give citizens—not government—more power to make the decisions that are best for them.

The choice this November is clear. Now it’s up to us to make our voices heard.

Owen Strachan: A Republican Agenda for the Future

The recent unveiling of the Republican agenda for a second term gave much encouragement to many who need it. Defeat COVID; create jobs; disentangle from China; provide school choice; teach American exceptionalism unapologetically; defend the police as an institution; oppose human trafficking—these and other measures offer sanity, flourishing, and hope to an embattled country.

No agenda can cover every issue. Two outstanding issues need platforming, however: religious liberty and abortion. The Trump administration has taken stands on both of these momentous matters and to good effect. In days ahead, though, supporters of religious liberty and the unerasable humanity of the unborn need more support, not less.

Religious liberty, after all, is for this gloriously free society the first freedom. Among other righteous ends, it enables a diverse coalition of many voices to speak on behalf of the unborn until the murderous abomination of abortion is a distant memory.

Mohler: Our Government Spending-and What It Reveals

Our government spending is way up—and everyone is seemingly fine with it.

A recent headline at the New York Times captured it well: “A Giant Deficit, Once Dreaded, Is Now Desired.” Historically, of course, we’ve had a long-standing argument in American politics about debt, the deficit, and government spending.

But now, all those old rules seem to be completely out the door.

On both sides of the political aisle, we have politicians making arguments they wouldn’t have believed they could have gotten away with just eight weeks ago. Republicans don’t sound like Republicans, and some of the Democrats sound like the kind of Democrat that other Democrats would have run from just weeks ago.

We need to be alerted to the danger of debt—a debt that future generations will have to repay.

Our economic decisions reveal our morality, our culture, our priorities … these decisions eventually reveal who we are.
