Is Atheism a chiefly liberal or conservative philosophy?

I know this may seem like a bit of an odd question but I’ve been wondering about it for the past few days and for some reason I can’t escape the feeling that it (atheism) would be a rather ‘conservative’ point of view (that is, at least in title), and yet I’m constantly being called a liberal because of my social and political leanings. I'm just wondering what your views are on this.

 

PS: I’ll be gone for a few days but I will catch up with this thread when I return.

on a slightly less related note, on of the undertaking's I've been considering is developing a new language (I already tried once, didn't turn out too bad) based on simplified thought structures; where letters (in this case the english alphabet) are assigned core thoughts or concepts, which are then combined to create more descriptive words or thoughts.  This would shorten sentence structure by being able to encapsulate large concepts within entire words, instead of using arbitrary words (multiple consonants and vowels to create one thought).  If anyone is interested in that, I'm more than willing to hear ideas~

lol go figure, they're trying to make a cheat sheet!  My first language was ok, but it became difficult to keep creating new words for every concept, essentially making it from scratch.  Thats why I'm trying this new approach, hopefully it will simplify it so necessary knowledge is kept merely to the alphabet and core concepts, so its merely a matter of decoding words as opposed to rote memorization. 

 

Btw, I'd like to say Michael, that we've had some great discussions on topics other than our political beliefs, and while I vehemently disagree with you in that area, I have a great deal of respect for you all around.  Everyone's entitled to their mistakes lol [that's intended to be humorous smugness]

Likewise, Park.

Hey man if socialism is so horribly evil then why do even conservatives go against getting  rid of medicare?Also why is there a socialistic healthcare in the military?

Because, Republicans and Democrats are both socialistic, just more or less in different areas. Neither are interested in upholding individual rights. I would guess that there is socialistic healthcare in the military for the same exact reasons that it is elsewhere.
But medicare is actually very popular so alot of people including seniors are all evil in your views.The fact is there is alot of sociallism in this country believe and alot of people like it.
Joel, the entire military is a socialist organization.  I needs to be to achieve cohesion and efficiency.  everything about the US military is socialistic.
Correction.  I meant  communist. the military is a communist organization.

Re Repubs & Dems....try oligarchy, a little better fit than socialist.
And the American Communist Military..is so breath-takingly oxymoronic that it could only stem from a new language.

Signed: Older Than Shit.

Thats the beauty of America.  We've spent the last 70 years fighting communism with a communist military.
Yeah thats probably why we spend shitloads of money on wars.Stupid wars like the iraq war which was a complete wast of money and time.
