imgresCOMMON SENSE: Bitterness is hardened anger. Nobody wants to be bitter, but it’s inevitable, when you succumb to self-righteously embrace your wounds—when you justify them as being right—rather than turn them over to God. If you place them in God’s hands, over time, you can become a forgiving person. If you can muster the courage to do that, you will become a person of value, a person who demonstrates the positive fruits of the Spirit of God.
 
Unfortunately, few choose to forgive. Because they do not own enough of their own souls, people like this chafe instead. They continue to justify their woundedness rather than abandon it. By embracing their acrimony, they think they are hurting the other person, but they are only hurting themselves. Unwittingly, they allow emotional poison to become self-consuming, destroying their future.
 
Ted Cruz demonstrated this error for us last night. Does he have justification to be bitter? Of course, he does, but his actions only hurt him—not Donald Trump. I hate that this has happened, but it has. Like all of Life’s lessons, I hope Cruz learns from it, but I doubt he will. Instead, like millions of others, he will choose to justify his actions, which are so unlike the Lord, Cruz talks about serving.

COMMON SENSE: In the Presidential Election, many news items are unimportant, but not all of them. Some things are very important—a few are critical. Take what Secretary of State John Kerry said to the graduating students at Northeastern University, for example. He told them that one day they would be living in a “world without borders,” implying that this would be a good thing.
 
This is what the Progressives want—a world without borders. Having no borders means the United States would have to embrace whoever comes, regardless of who they are. In their desire to create a Utopian dream world, Progressives like Kerry, Obama, and Hillary Clinton abhor American nationalism, mocking those who desire strong borders.
 
To them, their worldview is sophisticated. Our belief system, by way of contrast, is outdated and doomed to fail. In the Progressive mindset, our military might be necessary, but honoring American soldiers or taking care of them is unimportant. Without borders, you would still need some policemen but not the Army or the Navy.
 
Because Donald Trump wants to “Make America Great Again,” which is the exact opposite of what Obama, Kerry, and Hillary want, they loathe him. He espouses the exact opposite of what they desire for the future to be.
 
When you think of it like this, it’s easy to see why they hate Trump him so much, and will do anything to discredit him. As you can see, this is a critical issue—not a trivial one. If you believe in borders and want America to come first, choose Trump. If you want a world without borders, Hillary is your candidate. It’s as simple as that.

COMMON SENSE: President Obama can preemptively pardon Hillary Clinton, which he may do, despite the political upheaval it will cause. It has happened before, when Gerald Ford pardoned Richard Nixon over Watergate.
 
Here is the legal precedent. In 1866, the Supreme Court ruled in Ex Parte Garland that the pardon power “extends to every offense known to the law, and may be exercised at any time after its commission, either before legal proceedings are taken, or during their pendency, or after conviction and judgment.”
 
So, it is quite possible that Hillary will never even be charged. Obama may give her a pass on everything, but the American people certainly will not. The question came up on my radio show, JACK WATTS LIVE, so I thought I would post the answer.
