Jesus always was against the established religeous rulers of his day. Some things never change. The tax collectors and prostitutes are entering the kingdom of heaven before the religeous folk in todays world too. God is for the little man, who really needs Him and honestly comes to Him in true humility. Whatever the color or sexual orientation they may be. God does not belong in politics, did we not learn by the Popes in history or the nuts who use churches for Republican crazy votes today.
What about the Republican Party and Christian values. Let's take a walk down memory lane to the year 2000. An anonymous smear campaign began against McCain, delivered by push polls, faxes, e-mails, flyer's, and audience plants. The smears claimed that McCain had fathered a black child out of wedlock (the McCain's dark-skinned daughter was adopted from Bangladesh), that his wife Cindy was a drug addict, that he was a homosexual, and that he was a "Manchurian Candidate" who was either a traitor or mentally unstable from his North Vietnam POW days. Is gossip a sin? A lesson learned is that some people who proudly boast of their Christian values and wrap themselves in the flag are not what they appear to be.
No wonder it was a shorter amount of time to go from Pearl Harbor to VJ Day than it took to get in Iraq (March, 2003) to even get sufficient troops there to control the situation (the Surge, May, 2007)

Mitt Romney blames election loss on Obama giving out free stuff to voters. But didn't the Neo-Conservative Republican party create an eight year social engineering project in Iraq starting in March of 2003 creating mucho dollar profits for the military-industrial-complex?

Isn't Medicare a gift to old people that was forced upon them by liberals that now, even conservatives have a slobbering love affair with?

Mitt Romney blames election loss on Obama giving out free stuff to voters. But didn't the Republican party pander to the elderly by passing Medicare Prescription in 2003? ANOTHER PROGRAM NEVER PAID FOR BY THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.
Mitt Romney blames election loss on Obama giving out free stuff to voters. But didn't the Republican party pander to the corn belt with ethanol mandates and ethanol subsidies?

Mitt Romney blames election loss on Obama giving out free stuff to voters. But doesn't the Republican party pander to millionairea and billionaires who get the majority of their income via capital gains? Doesn't the Repubican party desire a zero tax rate on capital gains income? Mitt Romney, himself, paid an income tax rate of 13.8% last year. During the eight year George W. Bush 'Reign of Error' Romney may very well have paid ZERO income taxes. So much for that Global War on Terror hyperbole where the rich sacrifice nothing!
