Again agreed, but outside the question you posed above I would respectively posit. You were asking about Jesus philosophy and if conservatives would accept it as a political philosophy. I was pointing out only that Jesus philosophy calls for individuals to actually perform the acts of charity themselves not to farm it out to a third person. As such his philosophy if he ran would not-in my opinion be pay more taxes, but give more to the local poor and local charities, and give of your time as well as your money. This sort of political position might very well be applauded by many on the right, and detested by many on the left.
