Conservative Hypocrisy

Conservatives are supposed to be the religious ones, the supposed fundamentalists, but they do everything they can to go against the real teachings of whatever faith they claim to have, especially those who claim the rich are our saviours and benefactors. They do nothing fundamental to most religions. Most religions fundamentally boil down to treating others as family and promoting love. Superiority and self-promotion comes from hate and so do most "fundamentalists". And that's just the beginning of their hypocrisy.

The middle class gives more than double the percentage of their income to charity that the super-rich do.

What would Jesus have to say about this? Wouldn't it be funny (and piss conservatives off) if there was a verse from the Bible where Jesus criticizes the rich because a poor woman gives a higher percentage than them?
Mark 12:41-44
The Widow’s Offering

41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put and watched the crowd putting their money into the temple treasury. Many rich people threw in large amounts.
42 But a poor widow came and put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents.
43 Calling his disciples to him, Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. 44 They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on.”
 
And we all know how easy it is it is for the rich to get into Heaven. Eye of the needle and a camel, but these days it would be more appropriate to say that it would be easier to fly a jet through the ye of a needle than for the rich to get into Heaven. I guess they figured this out. That's why they try their best to make life Hell for the rest of us.

All conservatives aren't evil. Some are well-meaning, others ignorant, the rest are evil. The ones who control their movement certainly are, otherwise they wouldn't do everything in their power to hurt the poor. They would ensure that :"To whom much is given, much is expected" and end tax havens and tax cuts so those who have more can contribute more, as they are supposed to. 

The  so-called economic crisis is a moral crisis. Fraudsters calling themselves financial advisers (if they were so good they wouldn't need to live off commissions from those they supposedly represent) and economists, who are nothing more than fortunetellers in suits, as well as tax cheats that rob countries of billions of dollars from corporate, capital gains, estate and income taxes, are who are responsible for the economic problems. It's amazing how many rich people and corporations claim no profit during tax time. How are they ever managing to get by? By hiding the profit in tax shelters (which only the rich can use) and in offshore accounts. 

Conservatives fight against tax increases as if they are fighting for the common people. They're right in a way. We don't need general tax increases. We need to make the scumbags who are dragging our countries down pay their fair share and stop ripping us off. The country is us. It is not for their benefit alone.

I'm sure Jesus would agree. He did say, "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's" in other words pay your damn taxes assholes! I pay mine and I barely make poverty level, what's your excuse scumbags?
 
Its not the free-loading poor hurting us, its the free-loading rich. 
 
Evil always blames the victims and claims victimization itself.
