... because they can't be on Earth.
Dig this headline: Christians Debate: Was Jesus For Small Government? The article has a picture of Paul Ryan, architect of the House Budget, the only real one out there and the only existing plan to get the debt under control. I'm a big fan of Paul Ryan and have listened to his interviews and speeches many times. I've never heard any religious overtones. It's all about the math.
You can always tell when a writer lives in a progressive cocoon. They explain conservatives' motivations by combining stereotypes in ways that aren't common at all to the people themselves. It's a lot like the ignorant, cowardly dimwits who visited the San Diego Tea Party folks, bringing their own Confederate flags.
I've been a debt crank for years now. I'm also a Catholic crank. I've marinated in both topics for quite some time. Religion just doesn't play a significant role in this at all, except when latte-headed progressives try to make the connections.
I'd go on and quote the article from Barbara Hagerty, but it's just exhausting to read the thing. The debt synapses and Catholic neurons in my noggin are spread so far apart that it will drain all of the mental energy I've got for the day just to slog my way through the whole thing. You're free to take a whack at it.
Before you go, here's Paul Ryan discussing the debt. I guess this short video was too much for Babs to bother watching. Pathetic.
