I'd have to fully agree. I tend to find myself agreeing with conservatives more on most social issues, but I'm not religious at all.
I don't see how if I'm against gun control, against more government control, against higher taxes, I think man-made climate change is a hoax, that I have to be religious to think that way...
Considering a lot of the Republican's current philosophy is based off of Ayn Rand who was anti religion I'm surprised that atheists don't have a much more prominent place in the Republican party.
you might have more in common with libertarians
I am somewhat conservative but no where near "republican", BOTH deems & repubs spout one thing as part of their platform & DO the opposite.
I think that the Atheists going should consider wearing saffron robe as they stumble from booth to booth, like a Homeless Jesus.
I like politicians how I like my coffee.
I don't like coffee.
You mean because of that one verse in The Atheists' Covenant?
No, because it would be funny, and signify that religion is on it's last legs.
Well...that explains a lot!
That's like living your life with one arm tied behind your back.
I know! I try it every few months to see if I've changed enough to like it, but everytime I do I cringe and gag and feel worse off about it than before.
The same thing also happens when I try to drink coffee.
Well I like my coffee frozen. So send the lot of them to Alaska I say!
could you please explain how you came to the conclusion that the Republican party philosophy is based off of Ayn Rand?
Some of the greatest figures in U.S. history were politicians.
Some of the greatest advances in our society were achieved through politics.
I can understand disliking the worst aspects of politics, or the examples of selfish and short-sighted politicians.
But I can't understand condemning the whole process.
I completely agree, some of the greatest figures have been politicians. Washington, Lincoln, Eisenhower, FDR, JFK.
But somewhere along the line it got extremely corrupt.....I'm gonna say it started when Johnson got into office. Politicians nowadays?? Pleaseeeeee.
