Conservative hypocrites

What's wrong with the conservatives.
All conservatives are inherently wrong at the root of their thinking. Look what George W. Bush brought about. He got us into two wars that accomplished nothing but killing Innocent people. He got us into a recession by deregulating the banks. His deregulation of the oil industry lead directly to the oil spill in the gulf. Can anyone point to any positive results that have come out of conservative thinking?
Trickle down economics, really, I'm not interested in being trickled down on. How about paying a decent wage so workers can live a decent life and spread the money around at their income level. Heck, Henry Ford did that with his workers. He created a successful company that is still around, going strong the last I heard.
I tend toward the idea of social programs that help those in need through medical care, education food, and housing, I don't see anything wrong with those who have helping those in need. It's the story of the good Samaritan. We claim to be a Christian country after all. The literal meaning of christian is to act like Jesus. I don't see too many conservatives acting or talking in the way Jesus would want them too. If they did, they would be more like liberals. In the words of Jesus, "The lust of money is the root of all evil." Also " It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven."
It seems to me that if conservative want to claim to be more christian than liberals, they should start acting the way Jesus would want them to act. Otherwise they are just pseudo-christian hypocrites.
