    The ideals are based on evangelical Christian idealogy more than from political Republican goals.

    The more twisted misinterpretation of the Biblical hogwash os their stand on welfare. It's all based on the literal out of context reading of the Bible and the idea that God will provide. In their twisted minds, this is God's Will that Man shall NOT provide.

    And we all know that you go to Hell if you don't obey God's Will.

    The political ideal to destroy the Welfare State is closely related to this God's Will concept. In this twist, governments shall not provide. It's God's Will that government must not provide. Thus, all laws are evil; the work of the Devil. God invokes the End of Days as punishment.

    The Welfare State isn't equivalent to public welfare at all. But these people aren't very bright, either. Context is irrelevant - welfare is evil.

    This isn't snark. These concepts are presented incessently using this terminology in propaganda from the evangelical Christan Right and from the Heritage Foundation and the John Birch Society. A surprising number of people are vulverable to this garbage and believe that it's God's Truth and that they are the Enlightened Ones.

    Scott Walker's father is a retired evangelical Christian Right preacher (a Baptist variety) who learned these very things as a seminary student at the Denver Seminary. This school is one of the most right-wing fundamentalist evangelical seminaries in the country. Scott Walker told a newspaper interviewer that he learned, from his father, how to get his ideas across to people. He also said he learned how to preach from his father and though he was pretty good at it.

    This stuff is fundamental and is included in textbooks used to indocrinate educate the fascist conservative cult members students.
