Dinesh D'Souza: Think About The Consequences Of Your Vote

One problem that we conservatives have faced during at least the last three presidential elections is a choice between the lesser of two evils.  The GOP candidate has some serious flaws, while the Democrat is obviously someone we could never support.  As a result, some of us stay home or vote third party, thus taking away votes that could otherwise help defeat the Democratic candidate, because we believe that we must vote with our "consciences" or "principles".  But as Dinesh D'Souza tries to remind us, in doing so, we must take into account the actual result of the choice we make.  From Bizpac Review:
D’Souza spoke of the distinct difference between intentions and consequences, saying that while a Christian might act out of pure intentions, those actions could result in terrible consequences.
Turning to the topic of the presidential race, D’Souza made it clear who those who choose not to vote for Donald Trump are supporting.
“You need to know that a vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote to swing the balance of the Supreme Court, virtually irrevocably, against us. A vote for Hillary Clinton is a vote to not only permit, but bring in federal subsidies for abortion. A vote for Hillary is a vote to put religious freedom, already precarious, into a much more endangered position, because the checks and balances of what would normally block the government are themselves being eroded. And you are voting for a regime in which justice becomes increasingly discretionary, as I saw terrifyingly in my own case,” D’Souza said, referring to his own persecution and conviction for the seemingly minor crime of violating arcane campaign finance laws to help a friend running for office.
In another part of his speech, D'Souza says:
In Hillary’s America, I think it is an illusion to think that we as conservatives, as Christians, can retreat into our private spaces, drive our pickup truck to school or work, pray in church, and they will leave us unmolested. They will not do that. 
I've had similar thoughts about how right-wingers such as myself will be treated if the Hillary Clintons of this country get their way.  They have never been satisfied with things they approve of, such as abortion and gay marriage, being legal and available.  They also want to force all of us, even those of us for whom these things are against our consciences, to participate in these things, whether by a taxpayer-provided subsidy or a business-provided gay wedding cake.  I even believe that there are some who would even outlaw the act of speaking against these things.  In other words, they will not leave us alone, as D'Souza says, and any attempt to act according to our consciences and principles could even become a crime.  Read the full story and listen to the excerpt from D'Souza's speech.
