Will Our 2016 Presidential Candidate Learn from the Duggars?

My wife Mary told me about a TV show she loves to watch about the Duggar family, titled 19 Kids and Counting.

Mary said she likes watching the show because the parents and their kids are wholesome and good.  Upon hearing how the family adheres to extremely old-fashioned traditional values, I thought, what planet are these people from?  How has the Duggar family escaped the left's 24/7 coarsening of our culture?

But more important, I became excited thinking about the positive impact the Duggar family is having on millions below the radar by simply being themselves.  Everywhere you look, it appears that we are swiftly moving towards a godless anything-goes society.  Deviancy is celebrated as well as rude, crude, and bad behavior.

Mary said she has read vile, disgusting, evil blog posts by leftists, expressing their great hatred for the Duggars.  This does not surprise me.  Many on the left have a war on the traditional family, God, and all things wholesome and good.

As a Christian, I believe that there are evil spiritual forces at play in the left's vitriolic hatred for the Duggars, Sarah Palin, and all things wholesome and good.  It is one thing to think the Duggars are kooks.  It is another to wish them physical harm.

Still, my optimism is not swayed, because I know that no amount of hate and no number of attacks by leftists can stop the appeal and positive impact of the Duggars.  The Bible says God always has a remnant who will not bend their knees to worship false gods – political correctness, fame, money, and political power.  People are hungry for accountability and higher standards of behavior.  The Duggars have a huge fan base.

A pet peeve of mine is a scenario that has become a cliché in countless movies: a daughter in her early teens who has no respect for her father.  She talks to her dad like he is her equal.  Rather than putting the brat in her place, the idiot parents blame each other for not understanding her, or they say, Well, that is just the way kids are at her age.  I try to continue watching the movie, but I fail.  I simply cannot stomach it.

There is another annoying narrative that I believe is a veiled leftist attack on men, fathers, and traditional families.  We see it furthered in movies and TV sitcoms.  The narrative is that fathers are stupid fools, and the kids are smarter and wiser than their parents.

For example: our kids are indoctrinated with the myth of global warming, which is supposedly killing the polar bears.  The left infects the minds of our kids with every anti-American, anti-Christian, and anti-common sense item on its socialist/progressive agenda.  Parents who disagree and push back are portrayed as stupid fools.  This explains the left's ongoing attempts to have government make homeschooling illegal.  They want total control of your kids' brains.

Those who are hell-bent on fundamentally transforming America would have you believe that their shock-and-awe campaign to abandon cultural and moral standards is extremely successful, reaching critical mass, making their way of thinking the majority.  Fathers are being replaced with baby daddies.  Hooking up is replacing courting.  Marriage between a man and a woman is being replaced with whatever combo pleases your fancy.  The leftists' intimidation fear factor, in my opinion, is at an all-time high – get with the program or suffer dire consequences.

Yes, this is the America that Hollywood, the MSM, and the Democratic Party are telling us is mainstream progressive “big tent” thinking in America.  A lot of folks have bought into the left's big lie.  I have not.  Evil always portrays itself as all-powerful.

While evil pridefully pokes out its chest, dominating center-stage America, backstage, behind the scenes and below the radar, the Duggar family is impacting millions.  Praise God!

The Duggar family encourages me to continue writing articles promoting principles and values that you and I hold dear.  No matter how much the left laughs at us, attacks us, and tries to convince us that we are losing, we must keep fighting the good fight, standing up for what is right.

Please note.  I am not advocating that everyone mimic the Duggar family lifestyle.  I am saying that I admire their commitment to stand strong for godliness as they feel led while maintaining good-spirited smiles on their faces.  They appear unwavering, not intimidated by outside pressures to conform to the leftists' incrementally government-mandated godless America.

Folks, we have a presidential election coming in 2016.  Rather than a weak-kneed Republican presidential candidate who will embrace the Democrats' and mainstream liberal media's so-called “big tent” agenda, I pray for a candidate with the backbone and faith in God of the Duggar family.  My prayer is for a candidate who will take a stand for what he or she believes is right, regardless of the left's faux invincibility – portraying itself like a roaring lion seeking whom it may devour.

Two courageous patriots who immediately come to mind are Sarah Palin and Ted Cruz.  This is not a formal endorsement.  It is far too early.  I'm just sayin'.

My wife Mary loved watching the Duggars' daughter's wedding.
