When I told a friend of mine, who's Christian, that Jesus would've been a Democrat, he said: "Jesus wouldn't be Democrat or Republican...or Libertarian. He has been and always will be an Independent." There was a smile emoticon after that statement. I told him...

Everyone knows Independents caucus with the Democrats. And you know as well as I do that Jesus is a Liberal Democrat (Remember what Lawrence O'Donnell pointed out: Liberals got women the right to vote, and African-Americans the right to vote, created Social Security, ended segregation, passed the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, created Medicare, passed the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, legalized marriage equality. What did Conservatives do? They opposed every one of those things).

How can anyone who earns less than $100,000,000/yr be on the side of the Conservatives? They bust unions, raise taxes on the poor, lower taxes for the wealthy, ship jobs overseas, keep people from getting free healthcare... I hesitate to throw the word "evil" around, but just look at their policies. I don't know what else to call it, other than "bad for America." Just look what 30 years of Reaganomics did to our economy...tanked it. Look what Citizens United has done to our political system...turned it into an oligarchy. Look what plunging us into two needless wars has done...caused hundreds of thousands of deaths and nearly bankrupted our country. And Republicans want to go back to doing more of that now!!

Seriously. What's the attraction? Is it all about trying to overturn Roe v. Wade? Is the result you're getting really worth trying to please your imaginary deity? C'mon, man. We can do better than this.
