One of the tools in the GOP’s playbook for getting elected is to claim themselves as the party of “Christian values”. However, what they say and do is quite contradictory.
While Jesus spent his life helping the poor and needy, Republicans belittle those who need help, while championing those who live a life of greed. Their ideology is fundamentally based on “survival of the fittest.” Get as much as you can, nearly any way you can, and if others can’t keep up—that’s their problem. They continually fight to cut funding for programs that support the poor and needy.
Almost nothing the Republican party stands for reflects the values for which Jesus lived and died for. So, how can they continue to claim themselves to be the party of “Christian values”?

They failed in keeping Obama limited to one term but, even with this loss, the GOP has kept their second promise. They have done absolutely NOTHING to help the struggling American economy nor it’s struggling people in well over six and a half years and we pay them millions in salary and benefits for their inadequacy and lack of work product! The rest of us would have been fired long ago if we produced absolutely zero for those who pay our salaries! It is just remarkable what this president has accomplished, what with the obsessive obstacles purposefully thrown in his path. Imagine what could have been accomplished if those elected, on the Right, actually worked with this president!
