Who are we?

Progressives seem to have lost our way in the last few election cycles. While Barak came in with a fury, we lost the House and Senate fairly quickly, and now we have President Trump. 

Is there a political system that the majority of atheists would embrace? I know that being atheist does not mean you subscribe to any one group, and we will have differences. My curiosity wishes to know if there is a majority agreement on what we see as the future, and how we will get there.

Write to legislators! Here's the relevant article Democrats demand repeal of 'obscene' tax cut for millionaires that ...

This is the text of the message I sent to mine:

I urge you to make sure that net operating loss provisions are not included in the final COVID-19 relief bill.  Repeal these unwarranted tax cuts, as HEROES and HEROES 2.0 proposed and President Biden has recommended. This would save over $250 billion, which should be repurposed to help Americans who have lost income due to the pandemic and its economic fallout.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slams critics calling her agenda too radical

Rookie Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shot back at critics who say her progressive agenda is too radical and expensive, saying there’s nothing revolutionary about providing people with good jobs, health care and an education.
“When you can’t provide for your kids working a full-time job, working two full-time jobs. When you can’t have health care. That is not dignified,” Ocasio-Cortez told CBS’ “60 Minutes” in an interview that aired Sunday.
The 29-year-old newly minted House member is entering office with an ambitious agenda — including Medicare for all, tuition-free public college, and sweeping environmental protections.
“How are you going to pay for all that?” CBS’ Anderson Cooper asked her.“No one asks how we’re going to pay for this Space Force. No one asked how we paid for a $2 trillion tax cut,” she said. “We only ask how we pay for it on issues of housing, health care and education. How do we pay for it? With the same exact mechanisms that we pay for military increases for this Space Force.”

“Yes, Latinos dream more. When you live in poverty, when your president is imposed upon you, when they kill someone and no one gets indicted, and when only a few get rich, of course you dream more. It’s no coincidence that magic realism happens in Latin America, because for us dreams and aspirations are part of life.” ― Jorge Ramos

Wishing for a better future is wisdom. Fighting for a better future is a wise cause. It is difficult to end wars, but to survive, we must.

This Progressive Atheist wants every state (not just eighteen) and the nation to have the DIRECT initiative and referendum.

In the plutocratic oligarchy the Founders gave us, which includes those states with the INDIRECT initiative, voters elect predators and are their prey.

When you hear people refer to “our democracy” they are lying twice; they are referring to THEIR OLIGARCHY.

Stephen says: I hope it’s okay for a progressive Limey to take part in the discussion.

Heck, Stephen, you take part so often and so enthusiastically that I want to know when you will cross the Pond and become a Yank. [:>)]
