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.

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.

Iowa atheist leader gets death threat prior to Oskaloosa invocation

Despite last week’s death threat, the founder and director of Eastern Iowa Atheists says he’ll continue his mission.

Justin Scott, from the Bremer County town of Denver, says he seeks out city councils that open their meetings with prayer and asks to be allowed to give a secular invocation instead.

Scott says all went relatively smoothly at last Wednesday’s city council meeting in Oskaloosa.

“They were very welcoming and really appreciated my request,” Scott says. “I got no push-back from the city. They definitely made sure their meetings were absolutely inclusive to everybody which is exactly our goal in our efforts. We want to make sure if cities are doing this, that they are including all voices and all world views.”

Scott says his invocations are centered on the power of humanity and not of any type of deity.

A U.S. Supreme Court case in 2014 made it clear that prayer is allowed before city council meetings, but he wants to make sure everyone is being invited to the table. Scott says he’s been giving invocations all across the region.

Scott says, “We’re less focused on doing any kind of prayer or séance or ritual and more focused on just reminding elected officials why they are there and who they’re representing.”

Prior to last week’s Oskaloosa city council meeting, Scott was told by a local reporter that someone had threatened to kill Scott if he gave his atheist invocation. Scott applauds the city and the police department for making him feel very safe.

“Thankfully, there was a very calm, mature response to my invocation,” Scott says. “Even those that were not pleased with me being there were respectful. They came up during public comments, made their opinions known but for the most part, it was ‘Iowa nice,’ if you will.”

In April, Scott says he became the first atheist to deliver an invocation before a regular session of the Iowa House of Representatives.
