The Tea Party and Social Darwinism

Tea Party philosophy seems to be that people  are unsuccessful because they are lazy, unfit, and contribute nothing to society. Therefore society owes them nothing and if they die, tough luck. This is social darwinism. It has nothing to do with the theory of evolution. Yet, how many "Teapartiers" will acknowledge that they believe in social darwinism? I bet most of them would call themselves Christians and claim to follow the teachings of Christ - who advocated socialism in its purest form.
