    Far from great. Complete and utter bullshit...sure.

    First, this nation does help the poor. We're incredibly generous and charitable. As a result the poorest Americans are comparatively rich.

    Whatever Jesus said about helping the needy, he was speaking of charity, not theft and redistribution. It's one thing to give to the poor of your own accord. That's charity. It's quite another to take from some and give to others. That's theft...I'm pretty sure the rabbi Jesus espoused "thou shall not steal".

    Is there anything you collectivists won't twist into your some version of socialism? Just pathetic.

    So the GOP's Vice pick is not a fan of Rand's philosophy?

    Christians always come up with the quibbles about redistribution etc when asked why they don't follow Jesus' teachings.

    if you own a home, car, and any "extras" that aren't require to live then you simply aren't following jesus's teachings. its as simple as that and you would fit his definition of greed and sin perfectly.

    Christians are the most charitable people in America.

    Something is aobviously not working. Decades of spending and the rates are still the same.

    After Billions of Dollars Spent on War on Poverty, Poverty Rate Remains Unchanged
    June 25, 2012
    By Lonely Conservative

    For decades liberal politicians have been spending billions trillions of dollars fighting the “War on Poverty,” yet the poverty rate remains unchanged. But of course, they tell us that they just haven’t spent enough money.

    The government is not making much headway reducing poverty despite spending hundreds of billions of dollars, according to a study by the libertarian Cato Institute.

    Despite an unprecedented increase in federal anti-poverty spending the national poverty rate has not declined, it finds.

    “ince President Obama took office, federal welfare spending has increased by 41 percent, more than $193 billion per year.” the study says.

    Federal welfare spending this year now totals $668 billion, spread out over 126 programs, while the poverty rate that remains stubbornly high at nearly 15 percent – roughly where it was in 1965, when President Johnson declared a federal War on Poverty.

    American exceptionalism doesn't exist when we're talking about the poor.

    Then it's okay to consider ourselves lucky to not be in a third-world country.

    Since it is obvious that you don't understand Jesus' teachings, you should try to restrain yourself from pontificating about what others should believe, or how they should respond to those beliefs.
