I agree, but in N.America it is very difficult to find a Christian party,
if not impossible. It appears that all political parties see THE ECONOMY
as the guiding principle for politics. And if SOME will admit the Bible
into politics, they forget important parts of the instructions of the
Bible: for example, some say that being poor is their own fault, not
listening to our Lord's saying that the poor will always be with us,
indicating that we must take care of them.
Nevertheless, I am willing to join a truely Christian party, which
acknowledges that THE ECONOMY is not the most important measure in a country.
