interesting point of view about Jesus. However, I don't think he was talking to the government when he said "take care of the poor". He was talking to the future church.

I think it is the religious groups (ie. christian churches and the like) who are supposed to take care of the poor and not the government) Although it looks like churches are more concerned with building buildings then helping people.

unless of course, America is a Christian nation...then it needs to uphold the Christian value of taking care of the poor.

I never paid income tax for the seven years I was in the military even though I made about 45-70k a year not counting my 100% free health insurance.

hmmm...Interesting that most military members vote republican when their entire system is Socialist (housing allowance, food allowance, free healthcare and a salary no matter how much or how little a person works).
