The rightwing types who believe in the rapture for themselves, and then much suffering for everyone left behind, are the warmongers - Sarah Palin types - who want war in Israel and with Russia, because they think that is what is predicted in Revelations. A more sensible view of Revelations is that it was an attack on various warlike groups at the time, not a prediction of the future. But the name I use for the modern version is; The Armageddon Welcoming and Facilitating Committee. They want to be raptured up soon so they will not have to die. And they want to sit with God and Jesus among clouds and look down on others who are suffering (sort of like the Romans watching early Christians - how far the Christians have descended morally in wishing to go up into the sky!). They want it to be OK that this earth is polluted with junk in the air and water and on land, and that climate gets more troublesome for everyone other than themselves - they still deny there is a problem, or say God sent the floods or the tornado or fires. These people are evil and must not be elected to office where they can vote to promote war.<quoted text>
It is the republican agenda, using religion to brain wash people, control the assets of the country and bleed the middle class, poor of money and to make the 1% richer.
Not all warmongers are this type - some want to benefit big oil and big defense industries, and get their cut of the money. Palin is clearly among the first type, and Cheney among this latter type.
