Luke 12:16-21

And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

  1. Delicious irony, coming from one whose chosen party worships at the feet of wealthy parasites while almost literally spitting on the poor and lame. Can't help it: I love watching self-styled Xians like yourself contort themselves into the strangest postures, claiming to believe in scripture literally while they (and by association, you) maintain allegiance to a party built on greed, hypocrisy, defiance of your “savior's” tenets, and persistent outright lies about the current state of our economy. As Jimmy Carter–likely your least favorite president, at least after Bill Clinton–aptly said, “If you don't want your tax dollars to help the poor, then stop saying that you want a country based on Christian values. Because you don't!” To which I add, “Amen!”

  2. And the Democratic Party supports the wholesale slaughter of unborn children.

    And there is plenty of greed on the Democratic side, most prominently with the presumptive 2016 nominee for President, Hillary Clinton.

    There is plenty of corruption on the Democratic side.

    As to helping the poor, Jesus commanded that we give to the poor, not that we send armed agents of the state to confiscate someone else's wealth so they can do it instead.

    And there is plenty of evidence that the welfare state has done at least as much harm (and probably much more so) than good.

    Neither side is perfect. But the reality of American poltics is that if you're going to vote in a way that's effective, you have to pick Republicans or Democrats.
