ZVTS - The conservative problem for the GOP

Zandar Versus The Stupid: The New Schism In The Church Of The Conservative

The battle here is between the Corporate wing of the GOP, and the Religious wing. They both hate Democrats, but really that's as far as it goes. The Tea Party is the new brand for the Corporate wing, the "libertarians" who want no government regulation, and no government spending. They want to privatize as much of the day-to-day operations of America as possible, and they want to profit greatly from it personally. They really don't care about anyone other than their net worth and credit scores. They have no problems with gays, Muslims, minorities, or any race or creed, but if you're a net drain on taxpayers, you're on the way out. They want to run government as a business, and that means getting rid of the poor and destitute and want to rewrite the Constitution until they can do it.

The Religious wing on the other hand has a major problem with anyone who isn't a straight, white Christian evangelical. They're actually far more open to social and environmental spending to care for their fellow man (the straight, white Christian evangelical ones, anyway) and don't like to see the poor abused for profit. On the other hand, anyone who doesn't fit into their little clique can literally go to Hell as far as they are concerned. They believe in America being a Christian nation for and run by Christians, and everyone else is a second-class citizen.
I think that this take is about right
