What Did Jesus Do?

Why did Jesus feed the multitude at the Sermon on the Mount? Why did he cure the sick, heal the lame, restore sight to the blind and make lepers whole?

Shouldn't those people have had to take responsibility for their own circumstances, develop some self-discipline, and pull themselves up by their own sandal straps?

Isn't what Jesus did in trying to "help" those people just a sad example of yet another, failed liberal social program? He simply reinforced their dependence on a Higher Power to solve their problems for them.

Shouldn't he instead have spent his brief ministry on earth preaching the value of hard work, entrepreneurship, lower taxes, and building wealth through investing in a balanced portfolio of equities?

And if you agree, dear friends, you should vote Republican.
