GW Bush's "Christian" globalism-socialism gobbledygook

George W. Bush could well be the most confused man on the planet. He calls himself a conservative but never saw a socialist give-away program he didn't like. Unlike other conservatives, he seems to see the Constitution as more of an obstacle than a boon to his vision for America. He clearly opposes sovereignty for the US and has taken us to the brink of an EU type supranational government, greatly facilitating Obama's job.

Speaking of the bailouts, President Bush has said that he must go against his free-market principles to save the free market. Even after the banking crisis broke, his HUD web site called for a "Zero Down Payment Initiative" that would have forced banks to require no down payment for loans.

It is becoming abundantly clear that, at the rate government is jettisoning principles, we will soon have no free market left. The government now owns a significant share of banking interests and is greedily eyeing our auto industry. You the taxpayer are a silent or rather muzzled shareholder.

Many can't decide if Bush is a socialist or if he is really nave. But if he is really that nave, then he possibly belongs in the Guinness Book of World Records!

Personally, having heard Bush speak, I believe he has a grossly distorted idea of Christianity and thinks that the US government must be kind to the enemies of our people (all but the man who threatened his father), treating them as we would ourselves but treating ourselves like slaves and letting our enemies abuse us. Mainstream "Christianity," which is little more than a tool of the Left, teaches that nationalism is an evil. This teaching fits nicely with Bush's notions of globalism (which he inherited from his father), melded with his nave and distorted "Christian" socialism (a misinterpretation of Biblical precepts concerning the poor), his open-border, pro-amnesty policies and his receptiveness to supranational government. His fairly plain Christian views on abortion and family make him palatable to the Christian "right," which has no understanding of the Left and their intentions. This group, which talks suspiciously like the "Christian" Left, has shown a dangerous willingness to coexist with socialism and global governance that is, as we speak, resulting in their own irrelevance in world politics.

If my theory is correct, Bush has zero understanding of the Left, which laughs at people like him.

But his policies are no laughing matter.
