    clearly, if he was a live today, he would be a Liberal.
    That's a specious claim. Many conservatives believe in doing all of that - just in the private sector, not the public.

    What if Jesus was President of the United States?

    I guess it depends whether God told him which is the more efficient way to help people in need: Either encouraging private charity, or government social safety programs.

    Then he'd be the anti-Christ. Or so I heard.

    I don't think Jesus would be the President of the United States. "Render unto Caesar" and all that.

    Thats what we need, another political party - the "potatoes".
    Jesus would be the first "potatoe".
    Of course, we know that this gentleman was apolitical, but that his "leanings" were definitely Liberal.
    They seem to be the ones who care about people.

    I do not think that its the nature of the wealthy-conservatives to give to the poor, or so it seems...
    So, much to their disdain, OUR government must do this.

    C'mon bro, you really believe that? Jesus advocate worker ownership of the workplace? Communal and public property? Common/government ownership of the means of production?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
