We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Conservative Atheists

Information

Conservative Atheists

A place for conservatives, perhaps former Republicans, to exchange views on public policy.

I studied Republican Party history from its origin before the American Civil War. Since first voting in 1952 but not since 1980 when theists “kidnapped” the Party, I sometimes registered and voted Republican. I once ran in a Republican primary, hoping to replace my district’s representative in a state legislature. I can confidently say today’s Republicans are not conservatives.

I understand that North Western, and/or some place in that area also developed many physiological and personality tests. 

In that area if you aren't Lutheran you are weird (an outsider).

I wonder what Garrison Keilor,  "A Prairie Home Companion" would say about it. He and his listeners basically are the subjects of the study.

I don't know if you listen to NPR, or ever heard the radio broadcast "A Prairie Home Companion"

That's a skewed study..

In full sarcasm.

Go Lutherans!!!

Better than other christians.

Interesting article Tom

Atheists likely fall outside of the study group.

I've found polls to be leading and stopped participating in them.

For example; a question often asked; Is bla, bla, getting better or worse.

When I participated in surveys I'd say parts are getting better others are getting worse.  

What's the point of the question. 

That binary question has to be the most irritating to me.

I found the attached and other information about conservatives and liberals interesting.

These key psychological differences can determine whether you're li...

Politically, Americans are highly divided.

When it comes to issues of race, immigration, national security, and environmental protection, they disagree about how the government should handle things like never before.

Relative to polls in the 1990s, Republicans are now much more likely to say poor people have it easy, while Democrats are less likely to say so. Conservatives are also more likely to say that environmental regulations are costing the US too many jobs. Liberals now seem less convinced that peace can be achieved through military strength than they were decades ago.

The Pew Research Center reports that the country's political divisions now far exceed "divisions along basic demographic lines, such as age, education, gender and race." The share of Americans who sit in the middle of the political spectrum is lower, too.

Russian bots have taken advantage of these widening differences on Facebook and Twitter in an attempt to drive Americans' opinions further apart.

But what in the brains of conservative and liberal voters actually drive their belief systems? Scientists have been researching the psychological differences between people with different stances, and there are a few key ways that people on opposite ends of the political spectrum see the world. Here's what the data shows:

More above

Conservatives/Liberals - Democrats/Republicans in my opinion have nothing to do with the above.

Conservatives fear chaos and absence of order while liberals fear emptiness, says a study reported at

www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2008/09/080924124549.htm

Being a progressive conservative, I know chaos and absence of order exist. They are why we have laws and prisons.

Emptiness? I will ask a few liberal folk I know.

Chris, thanx for the public banking info.

Nature is competitive. It makes no exceptions.

Idealists can mitigate Nature’s effects, but disappointed idealists often turn to tyranny. How can people mitigage that?

Comment by Chris on November 9, 2018 at 4:27am

Tom,

Have you looked at the Public Banking Institute?

Unfortunately a bill in LA for that failed.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on November 4, 2018 at 2:27am

Let us acknowledge the importance and political uses of these emotions: anger, guilt and fear.

In decades of fundraising mail, I’ve seen progressives use anger at events in the past and present, liberals use guilt for events in the present, and conservatives use fear of events in the present and future.

To those sources add: Chris Mooney’s The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Deny Science and Geoffrey Kabaservice’s Rule and Ruin: The Downfall of Moderation and the Destruction of the Republican Party.

The early Repubs, under Lincoln, opposed slavery and were more democratic than today’s Dems. Under Johnson the Repubs started protecting the wealthy. In the early 1900s some progressive legislation became law.

The early Dems favored slavery and until the 1920s allied with the KKK. FDR changed that.
