Conservative Atheists


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.

Neo-liberal economic theory isn't traditionally a conservative/Republican, or a Liberal/Democratic stance.

Something else is broken.

I'd argue it's campaing funding heading toward fascism.

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

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?

Have you looked at the Public Banking Institute?

Unfortunately a bill in LA for that failed.

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.

Sources: mainly Heather Cox Richardson’s To Make Men Free. Also CJ Werleman’s Atheists Can’t Be Republicans, and Benjamjn Dixon’s God Is Not a Republican.

My dad (1904-79) was a Dem. My mom (1906-69) was a Repub. Born in 1930, I’m a pragmatist and a progressive. When a Party usually wins in the November elections I register with that Party to vote in its primaries.

The left-right spectrum I see: Progressive..Liberal..Conservative
