That would be nice, a political party with no connections to the purveyors of the imaginary gods, maybe sorta like the founding fathers had intended it to be.

The irony here is that the republicans, while claiming to be the party of Christian values, in fact embraces the politics/economic theories of Ayn Rand, an atheist, while the supposedly atheist democrats embrace a platform that advocates for the welfare of the poor, not unlike the teachings of Jesus.. Hmmm. Something does not make sense here. I think the creeper who wrote the original article needs a class in Jesus 101.

Sure, we occasionally see a few liberal evangelicals get trotted out by the mainstream media to tut-tut believers who actually believe in something more than free money for the lazy. Their ideology is just socialism with a thin veneer of Jesus. And it’s a Jesus who appears nowhere in the Bible, a gutless hippie who runs from fights and thinks that the Gospel requires you to keep fishing while giving away your catch to the dude kicking back on the beach because he doesn’t feel like casting his own net.
Apparently, the writer of the piece feels that anyone who looses the ability to work should be allowed to starve, just like Jesus would have done.

It's unhealthy when you only have one least worst party to choose from, though.

As long as greed and stupidity are part of human nature, the republican party shall not perish from the face of the earth. As long as tea party morons can be found to hold misspelled signs demanding that the government stay out of social security, there will be republicans. As long as the Koch brothers can buy unlimited ads and make unlimited campaign contributions, there will be politicians cynical enough to take that money and call themselves republicans. As long as dog whistles about race can be heard by bigots who go insane over the idea of a black man in the White House, there will be republicans. As long as there are people who agree with John McCain that the best foreign policy is "Let's blow sh*t up", there will be republicans.
