How can you be a poor republican?

I think Poor Republics are an interesting combination. No actually it is fascinating. They use the illusion of righteousness or good to rally a base of superstitious voters with promises that are very un-Christ like for the serving of a small percent of them. Would Jesus help the poor, the sick, the tired? Would he want us to live in a world where we take care of those who cannot take care of themselves? I don’t even believe in God but I believe in that ideal. I must have missed the chapters in seminary where God said abortion was evil, contraceptives are bad and everything should be privatized.

The problem with any of the good books is that you can use them to justify anything. I guess that is why evil people have been using them for justification and control for over 2000 years….if it isn’t broke don’t fix it.

That is until people start to realize they have been taken advantage of …

A couple of the main reasons that poor Republicans exist is 1. They actually believe that they really have a chnace to one day become RICH and live the American dream (hihgly unlikely) and 2. They cling to thier God and buy into the fallacy that the Republican party is the pious one.

I wish more people understood this. Most people who call themselves Republicans are not nearly wealthy enough to reap the benefits of their political stance. Sad/extremely annoying.
