I saw this on Kevin Drum's Blog

Republicans Are Mean

Here’s a story for you. My mother grew up in a Republican family.1 When Herbert Hoover was on the radio, everyone listened. But later she became a Democrat. What happened?

Well, she went off to college. But not some bleeding heart lefty bastion. She went to USC, which was even more Republican in 1950 than it is now. She didn’t get indoctrinated by a bunch of fuzzy liberal professors.

So what caused the switch? I asked her once, and she said that during her college years she came to the conclusion that Republicans were just mean. So she became a Democrat.

This struck me because I’ve long used the exact same word in the privacy of my own thoughts. I can write a sophisticated critique of conservative ideology as well as the next guy, but the truth is that it mostly boils down to a gut feel that Republicans are mean. I’ve never said this out loud because it sounds so kindergarten-y, but there it is. I think Republicans are mean, just like my mother did.

But now our time has come. Donald Trump started it, with his contention that Paul Ryan’s health care bill was “mean.” Today, Barack Obama picked up the ball, writing on Facebook about the “fundamental meanness at the core of this legislation.” And then Chuck Schumer weighed in with a big red poster calling the Senate health care bill “meaner.”

So that’s that. It’s now OK to ditch the ten-dollar words and just spit it out. Republicans are mean.2

1I’ve never figured out what the deal was here. My grandfather was very much a working-class guy, an electrician for Western Union. But he hated FDR. I don’t know why.

2The weird thing about this is that I live in Orange County and I know lots of conservatives. For the most part, they aren’t mean. But put ’em together in a single political party, and it’s all torches and pitchforks.

I reached out to the author of that Mother Jones article to introduce Republican Atheists and provide a different perspective but did not receive response.

Comment by Doone on June 2, 2017 at 7:49am

We should encourage conservative atheists.  However, based on stats I looked on Google there a few self-labeled Republican Atheists.http://www.motherjones.com/kevin-drum/2017/04/how-many-republicans-...

Of course we have conservative party's in the UK the main one the Tory's are at least not religious. I totally disagree with their policy's but not because of their religion.

Who knew that atheism is a conservative value, turns out David Silverman, President of the American Atheists does! Silverman, debates a non-believer (someone who does not believe that there is NO god), at CPAC 2015 (Conservative Political Action Conference), then answers questions about what the Founding Fathers intended, what can morality be without god, atheist genocide and the murder of the founder of American Atheists, Madalyn Murray O'Hair. For those interested in the O'Hair murder see the Forensic Science show https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Iz0X...

Lauren,

What do you think the difference is between R's and D's?

Comment by Stephen on April 7, 2017 at 3:43pm

I've always said that a persons political stance has nothing to do with their Atheism. We Atheists come in many political colours and hues, I myself am a Socialist and a friend of mine is a conservative and the only thing we agree upon is our Atheism and we both believe in the separation of church and state. 

Comment by Lauren Ell on April 5, 2017 at 7:25am

Republican Atheists general stance is that political parties are dynamic and can be shaped according to input from its members. Therefore we are building a platform for non-religious members in the Republican Party to contribute influence.

There are many reasons why a person would vote Republican, just like there are many reasons that a person would vote for any other political party.

Comment by Chris on April 5, 2017 at 5:07am

Hi Lauren, Question?

Do Republican elected official bid bills for corporations while ignoring 'the public"

Furthermore why do poor people vote for corporate interests while it seems to be counter for their self interests?

I always heard that working people shouldn't vote repupublican.

Is there a problem with the two party system?

Thanks,

Chris 

Comment by Chris on April 5, 2017 at 4:58am

Hi Lauren,

I'm not a Republican, or Democrat. 

It seems to me that both 'parties' are broken as political institutions.

What do you think of Rank, or preferential Voting?
