Why I support Mike Pence for president in 2024

The United States in 2024 badly needs a time of healing that requires mature leadership capable of thinking above the chaotic fray of the day-to-day turmoil of politics. The genius of the American system is that historically potentially divisive political conflicts tend to get resolved when the extremes move to the center of the political spectrum. The nearly impossible necessity of confronting today’s radical left in constructive dialogue demands a president capable of seeing past the hate-America chaos that threatens to cast the Republic in a second, massively destructive civil war.

After much prayerful reflection, a conviction has come upon my heart to support Mike Pence in his 2024 presidential bid. We are at yet another crossroads of American history, testing whether today what Abraham Lincoln, the first Republican president, described in 1862 as “the last best hope” will survive this second decade of the 21st century. Today, I am endorsing Mr. Pence for president in the spirit of Jeremiah 3:15: “Then I will give you shepherds after mine own heart, who will guide you with knowledge and understanding.”

My continuing support of Mr. Trump should also not be in doubt. In 2018 and 2019, the corrupt Mueller investigation threatened to imprison me for my active involvement in supporting Mr. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign. To avoid another time when the “fire kindled in God’s anger” burns upon us (Jeremiah 15:14), I would respectfully suggest Mr. Trump consider how Teddy Roosevelt and Winston Churchill managed their political careers in their senior years.
