Tulsia Gabbard took to social media Tuesday morning to announce her exit from the Democratic Party. In a video that has already amassed more than 1 million views, the former representative from Hawaii and presidential candidate says the Democratic Party is now "under the complete control of an elitist cabal of warmongers driven by cowardly wokeness."
Gabbard accuses the party of dividing Americans by "racializing every issue and stoke anti-white racism. Who actively work to undermine our God-given freedoms that are enshrined in our constitution."
In the video she addresses hot button topics like: Democrats hostility to people of faith, the demonization of the police, protection of criminals, open borders, weaponizing the national security to go after political opponents and dragging the country "ever closer to nuclear war."
Gabbard, an Army reserve officer, has been critical of the Biden Administration's response to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war. "As we bear the cost of our proxy war with Russia, you can be sure that our so-called leaders and billionaires will be safe in their well-stocked luxurious bunkers to comfortably weather the nuclear apocalypse that their actions bring down upon the rest of us," Gabbard says.
The movement of people leaving the Democratic Party isn't new. Back in 2018, former liberal Brandon Straka started a grassroots movement encouraging those on the Left to leave their party. On the 'Walk Away Campaign' website they encourage people to join the community to walk "toward patriotism and a new, unified America."
In Sept. 2021, Straka agreed to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge relating to Jan. 6. "I used to love the Democratic Party. Never would have dreamed I could have left it, and certainly never would have dreamed I'd become a Republican. But they made it very easy to leave. Then they made it even easier to never consider looking back," Straka posted to Twitter.

Just last week President Joe Biden raised alarms on the "prospect of Armageddon" amid Russia's threats of nuclear war. Critical over Biden's remarks, former President Donald Trump says the United States needs to be pushing Russia and Ukraine towards a peace deal. "We have to know what to say, what to do. And we are saying exactly the wrong thing. We'll end up in a World War III," Trump says.
Christians nationwide should be praying for peace and unity, not only in America but across the world. Billionaire and author Ray Dalio predicted a 30% chance of a U.S. Civil War, and according to a poll by YouGov and The Economist, 43% of Americans believe a civil war is likely.
Now is not the time to continue fighting with your neighbor on Facebook over politics, but the time to fast, pray and ask God to intervene. The Bible is clear that there would be rumors of wars happening throughout the earth.
Right now, God is calling for true repentance from His church. Not an outward expression of repentance, but an inward heart change. A church that no longer cares strictly about numbers and people pleasing but a church that lives for an audience of One.
