    When Eisenhower came home from a lifetime of service to the US Army, he was elected President of the United States and the 1950s became a time of peace and prosperity and domestic tranquility, often called the Golden Age of the USA. The Democrats begrudged him time on the golf course.

    Trump sometimes says that he is hated and smeared as much as Abraham Lincoln. I don't think that any Republican ever endured as many smears from the Democrats as Abraham Lincoln. At Trump's time of life, it is good that he enjoys time outside at his golf courses.

    All that time on the golf course and still he has accomplished so much. It is more proof he is a stable genius.

    peace to you

    What amazes me about Trump, how an immoral lying con artist is held up as a prophet for our times to defend the position of believers in society. Has it now become social responsibility is evil, but keeping what you have is true spiritual reality.
    Has America become corrupted by the consumer revolution and not realised it, thinking it was still the asthetic dreamers of a better future?

    Please show us where a Christian has referred to POT:S as a prophet.

    peace to you

    Trump, the candidate in 2016:

    "If I were in the White House I don't think I'd ever see Turnberrry again. I don't think I'd ever see Doral again...I just want to stay in the White House and work my ass off."

    "There won't be time to take vacations. There won't be time to go golfing all the time."

    "I'm not going to play much golf, because there's a lot of work to be done."

    "Obama? Obama plays more golf than most PGA touring professionals."

    "When you're in the White House, who the hell wants to play golf?"

    What's funny to me is how Trump, rough edges and all, is proving to more moral than his "christian critics". He's become the most pro-life president in US history. Meanwhile, many of these supposed conscientious moral giants continue to turn their backs on the unborn and the world.

    Maybe God sent Trump to shame the self-righteous. They certainly should be ashamed. "Yeah, but he golfs!!!!!" Something tells me, they're still shameless.

    I Googled it. It's QAnon code language for, "Where we go one, we go all."

    A line from the 1996 Jeff Bridges sailing adventure "White Squall."

    Never underestimate self preservation as a motivator to switch parties.

    People see what they want to see. Make America great again. What does this actually mean?
    America has always been a diverse society with lots of things going on and not really that concerned with the rest of the world.
    But come the world wars and the rise of militarism as a global policeman, things changed.

    But maybe this is actually all propoganda. Like the idea that a president has real power, when in truth the senate and congress when they agree has real power. Sadly the english parliament is more able to change direction and write new laws than the american system, so you get these massive swings and change in society that are truly transforming, like going from an industrial country to a financial services country.

    I live in London, and in reality London is its own multicultural bubble, quite different to the rest of the country. Whatever it meant to be english to my dad, it is something very different now. Brexit demonstrated the generation in the country who still live in the world of the 1960's are dislocated from the young generation of the internet and international identity. Brexit showed the economic realities of todays world have not dawned on the people, so they talk about a time when we were poor and almost bankcrupt like it is a good place to return to. This is just delusional. The worlds population has doubled since then and the issues today are not the issues of our youth.

    This is why Trump is a temporary blip in the sea of global identity and realisation. We have global catastrophic change coming in the next 50 years, worst case scenario, and we have not yet woken up. If our culture cannot cope we will descend into extremism and war, and the more violent solutions of one group against another take hold.

    When I think of Trump, I think of Zaphod Beeblebrux and the insanity of the show, while basic economic forces take hold.
    God bless you

    Hey, FollowHim, are you with this group?:

    US president’s golf outings lampooned in Led By Donkeys stunt at Trump Turnberry

    don't be led by donkeys, wonder if this is what inspired the thread?

    Yes, he played much more golf than he promised to while running for office four years ago, of all campaign promises a president can break (and they all break them), this would be one I would pick for him to break. Not enough to make me into a nevertrumper - if they had had their way, SCOTUS would be 5-3 at best now.

    What I get for this is, 'the Tribulation is coming, so why bother doing good? Why try to make things better?' But this is intellectually flawed and theologically immature. God told us a global tribulation is on the way, but he also told us know one knows the day or hour. Those claiming to know, and already waving the white flag, are deceiving themselves and falling for the devil's whispers. The fact is, it could be another couple hundred years away, and several revivals removed.

    Future tribulation should have no bearing on doing good works in the present.
