Christians say they want to combat abortion, to promote “traditional marriage,” and hold communities and families together, but the donor-class oligarchs’ plan is to de-industrialize the country, driving the working class into the underclass.

As the working class becomes a true proletariat complete with underclass behavioral norms, crime, what used to be called “broken homes,” and, yes, abortions, will be or already are the “new normal” for them. If we as Christians defend our working people, their jobs, and their wages, they can at least have a chance to form stable families and I would venture to guess there would likely be fewer abortions. Trump is speaking up for them, pointing to a practical way to directly attack the cultural and social rot that is destroying them and us. Cruz and Rubio have positioned themselves as defenders of “family values,” yet have supported trade deals that have undermined the economic base for family formation.
