What Would Jesus Experience?

H/T The Christian Left
I posted this a few days ago on Facebook, but that was before the Republican Presidential debate on CNN where the so-called Tea Party was the sponsor.   During the debate Ron Paul, who some are trying to characterize as the "moderate voice" in the field of fools running hard to the right, offered that a 30 year-old man who has no health insurance and then becomes dangerously ill should be left for dead. 
Why should we have a social safety net?  Or worse--why should we entertain a socialistic approach to health care like universal coverage?  The video reminded me of what I wrote in 2009 in "Send 'Em A Bill."

Yes, if Jesus were a candidate for President of the United States, I'd say he'd be polling pretty badly.  Damn dirty hippie!

Sickening, just sickening. I can hardly believe this is what we have come to in this country.

Ron Paul's staffer who had no insurance (could not get any since he had a pre-existing illness) died young. Ron Paul's crowd raised $50,000. The final bill was $400,000. Where did that bill go? The family? the Government?

Pretty sad group I'd say. The real Republican Party is no more.

This country is in a real mess.

I think we're all in agreement: our country is in cardiac arrest.
