In November, the U.S. House, Senate and the Presidency are up for grabs, and because of everything that's on the line, the stakes for freedom in the United States are higher than ever.

President Trump has been working hard these last three years to "drain the swamp," but the swamp has been fighting back with both Republicans and Democrats working to obstruct his reforms.

The scandals fabricated against Trump from within the White House itself show just how deeply entrenched Washington D.C.'s corruption really is. But voters are stuck, in a way, because the D.C. swamp creatures are often good at hiding their true motives until it becomes time for them to act.

When Trump took office in 2017, the U.S. House of Representatives was led by the Republicans, and voters were hopeful Trump's reforms would be realized. What happened, however, is that they totally choked on one of the biggest issues resonating with voters — the repeal of Obamacare.

Since it was pushed through by a Democrat-run house in 2010, the Republicans schemed to present an alternative plan that would be better for hard-working Americans. When their chance came in 2017, a project they had eight years to work on totally failed. They tried to make something up at the last minute, and it showed.

In the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats took control of the House while the Republicans maintained control of the Senate.

Trump has been working to 'drain the swamp,' but the swamp has been fighting back, with both Republicans and Democrats working to obstruct his reforms.

Fanatical leftists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley took office and moved the Democratic party even further to the left.

The Senate, however, has been doing yeoman's work to appoint President Trump's conservative federal court nominees and two Supreme Court justices. 

But in November all of this could be different. Whether it's better or worse is up to U.S. voters. But one thing's for sure, this election will truly be one of the most important in our history.

Listen to the Church Militant panel discuss the November fight for Congress in The Download—Forty Weeks: The House and Senate.
