Don't take this personal but your opening remark is totally absurd. There is an anointing placed on him by God? Jesus who is the Son of God encouraged paying taxes over 2,000 years ago ( Luke 20: 22- 25) Seeing that the Donald did not, are you saying Jesus was not being truthful?

What are you thinking? 

God or Jesus never anointed perfect people as his chosen ones. Someone needs to study the Bible.

    l wouldn't be surprised. Trump opened the door to that prospect and if someone did come forward- he would take it in the shorts. The other thing l noticed is that he feels the Oval office can be used for personal vendetta against his opponents. He said that he would " investigate" that federal judge who was looking into his business tactics. Tonight he said that " when l am President, l will appoint a special prosecutor.." Is this guy nuts? That sort of thing happens in 3rd world countries where your political opponents are arrested and thrown in jail or gone missing for good. One thing l will say, he threw a lot of red meat to his 35% base with the remark of " you will be in jail." Thing is you cannot win the election with a 35%-40% base.. Bash.. ..Try telling them that though. Btw what on earth was with that behavior of him creeping in on her personal space by standing behind her, looming over her like a grizzly bear attempting to intimidate her? My wife even said " With the heck is that all about?

    Sorry noise-gate this is becoming a third world country. At least Trump is acting like there is a problem.

    First step is in identifying it..the problem is Hillary and her type. Big donations and high style living while 

    there are cities and residents suffering and she wants to save the Syrian people - what about our own? 

    She wants to let those that want to leave their country in because she is under the impression that every

    thing is just fine with our own. Things are very wrong here. When a government and it's leadership become

    too globally active and have grand plans for other countries, it's either because they think things are acceptable

    here or are interested in what's in it for them. What can we give these people? Security? Safety? Why us and

    what about us?

    Oh and the behavior you call creeping, was intimidation. It clearly had an effect on Hillary. She's been accustomed

    to having no one in her rear view, on her tail or or being a presence demanding she be on par. Intimidation is

    something Hillary is usually more effective and experienced with and I'm glad Trump turned the tables last night.

    She was rocked off her pedestal of self importance, invincibility and high horse feeling that she's untouchable.

    Hesitant, uneasy, ineffective and clearly brought down a few notches. If she wasn't guilty of charges, why did she

    have nothing to say but what we've all heard before? A bunch of lies, deceit and topic ducking diversion tactics.

    Hillary's big money can gain political favor but it can't buy the hearts of the American people. I'm tired of being sold

    out. Honestly, aren't you?

      I just wish Trump mentioned the corrupt Clinton Foundation last night.  Oh well, maybe next time.  I thought that was a good debate.

          Someone does read their bible and the point l am making is that if you enamored by an individuals actions, its pretty dangerous to suddenly say his anointed. Where do you stop? Was Obama anointed in 08, how about Bush after 911, Nixon, Kennedy? Just because you " think"  it does not make it so. Would Bernie Sanders folks be correct in saying he was anointed? Which begs the question- what traits are displayed by one you think is anointed?

            l am no authority on the scriptures- But l would be foolish to assume that just by  looking at  people's actions l come to the conclusion that the person is anointed by God. King Nebuchadnezzar  & Cyrus  first off were not worshippers of God. They were " used" for a specific purpose, namely to bring about actions that furthered  God's plan. What's Trump use?  If you go down that path of reason, one could ask was Bernie Sanders actions for  attempting to lift the minimum wage, free College for all a " sign" that he was anointed? Do you see the original point l was making?

              Trump is not going to bring up Clinton's foundation, because trump is in the same boat about his foundation.  New York just sent trump notice to shut down his foundation.  Trump was also using money from his foundation to payoff people.

                that's a real sad excuse to elect a pervert and to the White House...his debate performance showed he doesn't have the IQ Rubber Monkey.he will never be able to negotiate trade deals or make informed decisions in the event the war...therefore Hillary Clinton is my choice

                   Well if you watched the video that GreenBay posted on this thread by Hannity ( page 139) you will see exactly what Bill Clinton was doing when he was living in the White House... it is DISGUSTING!!!

                  That was a waste of time bringing those 4 women into the debate, and it was pretty LOW.

                  When they go low, you go high!  Well done Hillary!

                  Hillary go high? That is a crock.  If I can give them any credit, it is they are both gutter fighters, no one goes as low as those two for mud slinging.

                    But it is a series of lows for trump and now he brings Bill Clinton's accusers to the debate.  Extremely low!

                      I won't say that I know the will of God beyond that which he has made evident within scripture and even then

                      it's not always clear.  I have to wait and see but while waiting I look for traits that line up with other events that

                      have happened in the past.  The Bible tells us that God gives kingdoms to whoever he will but he also gives us a

                      a little background into how he determines his choice.   Obama could have had a good run but early on he mocked

                      God.  Things that could have been blessed ended in failure. 

                       "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap."

                      Rest assured, God will determine the next president based on the state of the his people.  The church has failed to

                      fulfill the the will of God and has been given a warning shot across it's bow.   

                      "The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps."  I say that holds true for both good and bad. 

                      Why don't we just flip a coin and let God decides the outcome?   Because we need a wakeup call every now and then

                      and are given the chance to effect the outcome. 

                      As touching Taxes

                      And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

                      They say unto him, Caesar's.

                      Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

                      These passages tell us to pay what the law says we owe.  Trump's usage of the tax codes/laws was perfectly legal.  Caesar got

                      all that was due him under current laws as far as I know.  Why would anyone pay more than legally required?

                      America is the greatest country in the world and God has blessed it and God has withheld his blessings time and time again.

                      It's not Trump's brilliance or lack of it that defines my vote.  As I see it we have two distinct paths set before us.  One will hold us

                      to the current path and the other changes course.   When I compare Hillary to the law of God then I see some very big no no's.

                      Some will argue my points using the character of the person as evidence but that stuff falls into the I don't really care basket.

                            On September 11, 2012, Islamist militants attacked a US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, leaving a US ambassador and three other Americans dead.

                            White House officials initially, and inaccurately, described the assault not as a coordinated terrorist attack, but as a spontaneous act of violence born out of a protest over an anti-Islamic video.

                            It later emerged that the state department, led at the time by Hillary Clinton, had rejected appeals for additional security at the consulate where the attack took place.

                            The attack and the administration's bumbling response came in the lead-up to the 2012 general election, and critics of Mrs Clinton and President Barack Obama accused them of incompetence, or even taking part in a nefarious cover-up.

                            While no wilful wrongdoing has ever come to light the investigation continues, with Mrs Clinton at long last taking the stand on Thursday.
