The GOP has been playing the Evangelicals just to get their votes. While campaigning, they wrap themselves in an American flag and grab a Bible, and trick them into voting for them again. The day after the election they throw the Bible and the flag into the trash and go right back to doing the bidding of those who gave them the money to run, the wealthy, CEO's, Big Oil and Energy companies. They did pass big tax breaks for these guys, but even though they have controlled all 3 branches of government, they have passed no legislation to further the cause of social issues that are near and dear to the hearts of Evangelicals. Meanwhile, the GOP is cutting funding for programs for the poor, children, the disadvantaged, the disabled and veterans. They cut funding for Jesus' flock to help balance the books for the tax cuts for the rich. If Jesus became a Senator, what do you think the chances are that he would go to Washington, cut taxes for the wealthy and then cut programs for the poor or needy? But Evangelicals keep voting for them. Now they have insulted them and their leaders like James Dobson and others, privately calling the Nutballs and Whackos. They never did adequately fund the faith-based initiative program making that a sham as well. George Bush and Karl Rove should be ashamed. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be ashamed about all the shameful things they've done. (cf. jamfan on AlterNet.org/blogs)
Right On. It is by divine appointment that the truth is just beginning to surface. Something a few of us have suffered from for a while; hypocritical (ignorant/blind) conservative vote @ church! Politics and Church don't, and ought not to mix. Politics are as dirty and as far away from a good thing as it gets. We need to learn from the Amish. True to their cause, and don't meddle in world affairs, much less politics. They don't have the Dobsons, the Pat Robertsons, the Falwells, or the Karl Roves... God forbid.
