I was raised to be a republican. On many of the social issues, I still hold those views. I still believe that it is important that everyone that is able to work, work for their food and housing.
But the more I think about all that is wrong with my job, and other jobs I have had in the past, the more I know that maybe everything is not right with our economic system in the US.
Many people have connected the ideas of Capitalism and Chrisitianity the same way they connect Christianity and patriotism to the United States of America. In many churches, it is one and the same, if you are a Christian, then you are a registered republican who wholeheartedly believes in our economic system of the free-market economy in the great 'ol US of A. And anyone who believes in such things as socialized healthcare or subsidized housing must be a commie or at the least a pinko liberal democrat.
The sad thing is that the two parties have polarized themselves so much, and set their platforms in stone we have no way of separating the extremist beliefs of each party from the good that each party has in it.
If there were a Christian Socialist party I may vote for them, but that's about as likely as pigs flying.
