    I think Jesus would overall be disgusted with the lot of humanity.

    When you read the Gospels, it's pretty clear that Jesus cared little for politics. When people tried to get him to comment politically, He changed the subject.

    Individuals and societies can do as Jesus says while being liberal, conservative or other, so I don't think he would choose any political persuasion. It doesn't matter what you are - loving others and helping others is not exclusive to any political lean.

    Jesus would be Jesus. I don't think we can take His beliefs and make them fit with one of our political philosophies.

    This is not true either. "Render unto Rome..." was a huge political statement about current events of the time.

    Render unto Caesar wasn't a political statement. He also showed no understanding of money so the statement in of itself is worthless.

    ""Render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's"

    seems Jesus would want a seperation of church and State.

    well, Jesus was a Jew, so if he lived in the USA..he would likely be a liberal Democrat.

    if he lived in Europe...he's be a social-democrat.

    You might want to study on the times. That hit upon the big controversy among the jews at the time. It was very much a political statement, made in very clear political terms. Some Jews to this day think of Jesus as something of a roman collaborator.
