The case for Roy Moore to be Alabama’s next senator

Published

We have all heard the constant drumbeat of the words “drain the swamp” incessantly since November’s presidential election. While many voters thought that this would be an easy task if Donald Trump won the presidency, it turns out that it is much harder than it sounds. Even today, eight months into Trump’s presidency, we still have many Obama-era holdovers in the deep state, many establishment-types in Trump’s cabinet, and we still have the same ineffective congressional leaders in House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

It’s understandable why many Trump voters are disappointed that the swamp-draining isn’t happening quickly enough, if at all.

However, a great catalyst to this end would be electing Judge Roy Moore of Alabama to the United States Senate, to fill the seat vacated by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

There are many reasons that Moore would be a wonderful way of getting rid of the paradigm of “politics as usual,” which has plagued the Republican Party for decades. But the main one, aside from his actual political beliefs, which are clearly conservative, is that he has proven that he will do whatever it takes to stand up for what is right, no matter the cost to him personally.

Let us begin in 2003. At the time, Moore was the Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, and two years earlier, Moore had placed a monument of the Ten Commandments in front of the court, so that “to restore morality we must first recognize the source from which all morality springs.” Much controversy ensues, and U.S. District Judge Myron Thompson of Montgomery orders the monument removed for violating the constitution’s ban on establishment of religion by the government. Moore refuses, and eventually is suspended from his position.

Fast forward to 2012, when Moore is elected to another six-year term as Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Then, in 2015, U.S. District Judge Callie V.S. “Ginny” Granade rules Alabama’s marriage laws outlawing same-sex marriage is unconstitutional. Moore rejects this ruling, stating that “for one district judge to overturn the laws of Alabama — she can’t do that … Federal rules don’t allow her to do that…”

Eventually, after the US Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, Moore refused to allow Alabama to issue these marriage licenses, on the grounds that the Supreme Court was overreaching and that they cannot make law, and that the Alabama Supreme Court is the court that sets the laws for the state.

Moore is again suspended without pay, effectively ending his career. Many prominent conservatives missed this, others, such as Steve Deace and Daniel Horowitz, both of Conservative Review, hail Moore as a hero for standing up for his beliefs and not taking the easy way out.

Which brings us to today. Moore is the prototype for doing what he believes is right, no matter the cost. He will not play second-fiddle to a charlatan to Mitch McConnell, who is doing whatever he can to elect Luther Strange to the Senate seat, an establishment candidate that wi be a reliable McConnell lackey. The fact that a senator from Kentucky (in reality, from K-Street) is putting so much into this race shows how worried he is that the swamp will actually be drained. One can only wonder why Trump has endorsed Strange, but we all know why McConnell did.

In comparison, Moore stands only for principle and doing the right thing. Most Americans have a negative view of politicians because of McConnell and his ilk, and that is why we must rally around anyone the D.C. swamp opposes. Because that is the perfect litmus test for who will fight for all Americans, for liberty, for the Constitution, and not K-Street and D.C. politics.

It is for this reason that I have strongly endorsed Moore for the special election scheduled tomorrow, and urge anyone reading this in Alabama to go out and vote for him.

    Trump endorsed Strange because he’s part of the swamp. He always was. Those of us who actually wanted to drain the swamp supported Ted Cruz and are not in the least surprised that the swamp hasn’t been drained. Look who Trump has surrounded himself with. There is no wonder why the swamp is intact. You don’t vote for a progressive barely Republican and expect him to clear out other progressives. Just look at the Obamacare debate. Who did Trump go after? Was it the liberal parts of the party? Nope. He attacked Conservatives who were trying to actually keep their promise to FULLY repeal Obamacare.

    Having said that Moore would be a breath of fresh air and would be a great addition to the likes of Ted Cruz and Mike Lee.

    I am a resident of Alabama, a native of the southeast, and all my ancestors are veterans of the Confederacy during the Civil War. My grandmother was born on Robert E. Lee’s birthday and was named “Robert Lee …” So I have a significant connection to the Civil War’s history in the southeast. I find it reprehensible that you, as an Orthodox Jew especially, publicly endorse and support Roy Moore. It is obscene that he uses God to promote himself, and to endorse hateful, discriminatory and divisive agendas. Refer to this and pray about your position: Acts 20:28 “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood. 29 I know that after I leave, savage wolves will come in among you and will not spare the flock. 30 Even from your own number men will arise and distort the truth in order to draw away disciples after them.” Or this scripture … Ezekiel 13:9 “My hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations. They will not belong to the council of my people or be listed in the records of Israel, nor will they enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.”
