far from perfect Bernie Sanders looks a whole lot more like Jesus than do Donald Trump and Republican Party

Read online this morning that Bernie Sanders ran away with the Nevada Democratic caucus, which flashed me back to an Alabama amiga's response to yesterday's swing voter hideouts like Key West hold the keys to defeating Donald Trump post at this blog. My amiga attends church, has many medical troubles, just gets by financially, and voted for Donald Trump in 2016 because she really didn't like Hillary Clinton. 

I don’t want a socialist!!

How about free health care? Trump will give you that?
Sure looks to me Jesus was a socialist.

Talk to you another time. Have to read tonite. Have opinion just no time. Sorry

Me this Sunday morning:
Read Jesus in the Gospels.

It's more blessed to give than to receive; 
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap; 
If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. 

The righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 

The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' 

In Acts of the Apostles, Peter led a community in which every member put all he or she had into a common pot and received back what she or he needed. One married couple said they had put in everything they had, but they had held something back, and when Peter confronted the man, he admitted it and Peter said he was sorry and the man dropped dead, and the same happened to the woman after Peter told her what had happened to her husband 

Bernie Sanders is far from perfect, but he looks a whole lot more like Jesus and Peter than do Donald Trump and the Republican Party.
