They have no interest in helping the masses of struggling Americans because they stupidly believe it will help them win the election and get the black man they hate so much out of the Oval Office.
The right-wing claims to have some sort of monopoly on Christianity and they claim that liberals are godless heathens who have no values. Well, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The left-wing has Christians too, and they are collectively known as The Christian Left.
