Excerpt from The Federalist
Written by Gracy Olmstead
It’s been a depressing couple weeks for conservative voters. Especially Christian ones.
But any chagrin or despair we feel over this messy, scandalous, objectionable election should not be coupled with shock or surprise. These candidates were not born overnight. Neither was the system that birthed them. Our increasingly polarized and anxious citizenry has sought comfort in all the wrong places. Donald Trump promises an end to fear—fear of the crushing economic possibilities of globalization, fear of illegal immigration run amok, fear of the “other” and the unknown in all its various forms.
