COMMON SENSE: If you watched the announcement of President Trump picking Judge Kavanaugh, even if you disagreed with Trump’s choice, it was self-evident that the Judge was a qualified selection. Yet, without knowing one thing about who Kavanaugh really is, thousands of protesters screamed obscenities, accusing this fine jurist of having the character qualities of a career criminal.

 
Behavior like this is madness. Plus, it is counter-productive. When normal Americans see it, they are either angered or repulsed. It’s not attractive; nor are the political leaders who spew their venom on TV. Nevertheless, like an unwanted virus, the disease of hatred has spread across our land, infecting the hearts and minds of millions.
 
If you are one of these people, and you want to become whole again, there is help for you. You can #WalkAway and never look back. To help you, here is a 12 Step program that will transform your heart from bitterness to serenity. If you have a friend who needs this, feel free to forward these life-transforming steps.
 
#WalkAway 12 STEPS TO RECOVERY
 
1. I admitted I was powerless over my political anger—that my life had become unmanageable because of it.
 
2. I came to believe that a power greater than myself could restore my out-of-control thoughts and behavior to sanity.
 
3. I made a decision to turn my will and my life over to the care of God.
 
4. Focusing on everything that made me so angry, I made a searching and fearless moral inventory of myself.
 
5. I admitted to God, to myself, and to another human being the exact nature of my wrongdoing, holding nothing back.
 
6. I became entirely ready to have God remove the defects of character that caused me to be so angry.
 
7. In humility, I asked God to remove each of my shortcomings.
 
8. I made a list of all the people my political anger harmed, including those on social media, and became willing to make amends to them all.
 
9. I made direct amends wherever possible, or through the social media when appropriate, except when to do so would injure them or others.
 
10. I continued to take personal inventory of my thoughts and behavior and, when I was wrong, I promptly admitted it.
 
11. I sought through prayer and meditation to improve my conscious contact with God, knowing He is the source of my serenity. I made a commitment to pray daily for the knowledge of His will and asked God for the power to carry it out.
 
12. Having achieved a spiritual awakening as the result of working these Steps, I made a commitment to carry this message to others who are politically embittered.

COMMON SENSE: A little thing is a little thing, but faithfulness in doing a little thing is a big thing. When done consistently over time, it builds trust. When you can trust a person to do the right thing, based on consistent fidelity, it established rock solid confidence.
 
Because President Trump has consistently kept his campaign promises, those of us who have supported him no longer hope he will do what he said he will do. We know he will. His stock with us is so high that it is practically unshakable. He is leading America in the right direction, and we know it.
 
In the 2016 Presidential Election, 81% of Evangelicals voted for Donald J. Trump. There were a myriad of reason why we did, but one reason was dominant—his position on appointments to the Supreme Court. Knowing how important this Presidential responsibility was, four-out-of-five born-again Christians chose Trump over Hillary Clinton. We did not want her to have the power to nominate Supreme Court Justices. That was the last thing we wanted, so we voted against her.
 
Now, less than two years later, President Trump has nominated two Supreme Court Justices, and both of them have been outstanding selections, despite the bitter raging by the Left. Trump’s other judicial appointments to lower courts have been equally as outstanding.
 
Trump has been faithful to us, and now it is our turn to step up to the plate once again and stand solidly behind him. We must actively and vigorously support candidates for the Senate and the House who support the Trump agenda. Let the Left rail against us for doing so. That is their prerogative, but it our duty to our nation, as well as to our children and grandchildren, to fight for the freedoms we have enjoyed for generations, while also standing firmly against the Progressive agenda of open borders, lawlessness, and Socialism.

COMMON SENSE: Because each of Trump’s four possible picks for the Supreme Court is a Constitutionalist, it really doesn’t matter which one he chooses. All are qualified, and all are committed to rendering decisions based exclusively on the Rule of Law.
 
It’s only with the Liberals and Progressives that personality matters. Because none of the four Liberals are committed to adjudicating based exclusively on the Constitution, their backgrounds and personalities are far more important than with the Conservative judges. If left to their own devises, there is no telling how the Liberals will rule.
 
This is why there is no way to Make America Great Again without ensuring that the Constitutionalists enjoy a firm majority. The current pick will help, but what we really need is for a Constitutionalist to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Until this happens, we will have only achieved partial success. Replacing Justice Suder would be icing on the cake.

COMMON SENSE: During the 2016 Presidential election campaign, when I supported candidate Donald Trump, as most of you know, I received relentless attacks for maintaining my position. When the “Access Hollywood” tape surfaced, there was a cacophony of shouts from friends and foe for me to abandon my support for Trump.
 
Although there were times when I was shaken, I never stopped supporting Trump, and I had at least one solid reason why I remained loyal. I knew that I didn’t want Hillary Clinton to make appointments to the Supreme Court, knowing that her selections would adversely impact our nation for decades to come.
 
When people mockingly asked me, “How can you support a man who would say such things about women?” I always had an answer. “It’s because I don’t want Crooked Hillary packing the Court with Progressive judges who will eviscerate the Constitution.”
 
Now, in less than two years, my steadfast determination has paid off. To his credit, President Trump has remained true to his word—a rarity in Washington—by narrowing down his Supreme Court selection to those candidates who were on his list.
 
I was faithful to him, but he has also been faithful to me and to the millions of others who stuck with him, despite the unrelenting personal attacks on him from the media, academia, and Hollywood. We were right, and the “Never Trumpers,” who have remained bitter to this day, were wrong. The results speak for themselves, including two rock solid Supreme Court picks, and at least one more to come soon. At 85, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will not make it to the end of Trump’s first term. Justice Suder might not either.

COMMON SENSE: This is Kino Jiminez, the man who stole the “Make America Great Again” hat from a sixteen-year-old and threw a drink in the teens face, swearing at the kid while doing it. Unfortunately for Kino, the incident was taped. When it was posted, it quickly went viral. Even President Trump saw it and offered to send the teen a signed #MAGA hat, if someone would provide an address.
 
The outrage over Kino’s assault has been swift. The bar where he worked fired him immediately, and Kino was arrested for “theft of person.” Apparently, there was no provocation for Kino’s attack, other than his innate rage over Donald J. Trump being our President.
 
Being thirty and muscular, intimidating a sixteen-year-old was easy for Kino, but the consequences for his behavior will make him rue the day he ever assaulted this young man. Kino deserves whatever punishment he gets, but his anger, which boiled over into assault, is becoming an increasing problem in America.
 
Like so many, Kino lacks the coping tools to engage in political discourse peacefully, choosing instead to lash out at a teen who was peacefully eating his Whataburger.
 
Kino, and others like him, is why I have developed the #WalkAway 12 Step Recovery Program. If Kino had worked these 12 Steps instead of lashing out inappropriately, he would still have a job, and he wouldn’t be facing jail time. For those on the Left who are enraged, but don’t want to end up like Kino, here are the Steps.

#WalkAway 12 STEPS TO RECOVERY
 
Since I have posted about recovery issues each day for more than a decade, I thought it might help my fellow Americans, if I provided the embittered Left with the Steps necessary for them to walk away and never regret it. If worked, the 12 Steps below will help those who are emotionally wounded to become whole again. (Feel free to repost this.)

Father in Heaven,
We have wandered so far from You,
From Your ways, from Your leading,
From Your desires, and from Your purpose.
At first, it didn’t seem like this was such a great distance,
But now that we look back, it has become clear
That our stubborn willfulness has led us
To a barren spiritual wilderness, where millions,
Repudiating Your Word, call right wrong and wrong right.
 
As a nation, in our arrogance and self-righteousness,
We still speak Your name, but it is without reverence.
We still want Your blessing, and confidently believe we have
A right to ask for it, but we do not look to You for Leadership,
Nor do we consider obeying Your will to be important.
We acknowledge this is the true report and confess our complicity
In being docile, apathetic, and complicit, as the forces of Darkness
Have usurped our traditions, our heritage, and our purpose,
Redefining history to justify their godless perspective.
 
We stand in the shadow of generations of Christian patriots—
Those who fought the good fight so that we would remain free
To worship You in peace and prosperity, free from impediment.
But now we face new obstacles. A new spirit has emerged,
One whose haughtiness and pride sneers at You in disdain,
As they mock Your name and Your people, calling us ignorant,
Uninformed, and dangerous to their secular globalist agenda.
As believers in You and Your willingness to restore America,
We ask that You hear our prayers, as we bow before You,
Repenting of our societal sins. We beseech You to heal our land.
We ask this, not because we are deserving,
But because of Your unending love, mercy and grace.,
Amen
