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.
I've actually been ramping up to a full blown (motherfuckin) thesis on the subject, but more 'Socialism vs Capitalism~ a breakdown of current paradigm vs possible paradigm' which is why I posted about entitlements earlier. I've been trying to chunk it down, and sharpen my arguments on here, so that I can eventually test all of them, and then just write an intro, thesis, and throw it all together (for the most part)
Oh, the Drama; The Pressure!
I will put it on my list of things to do, however I have a medical/psychological issue I'm dealing with that makes it difficult (seriously) that I mentioned in another thread you're in.
I can't stop dissecting and dismantling thoughts logically and philosophically, and its starting to drive me fucking insane. I want to turn it off somehow, but it keeps on going and going and going and going and going~ Its turning into me arguing even the most inane details for correctness, like that post on stupid maxims~ the disclaimer at the top and bottom wasn't a joke, I seriously can't stop. Libertarians have been good prey as of late (anyone conservative, really) and I think you and I have gotten into it in the Hitchens thread as well~ but I can't stop debating and arguing, constructing and deconstructing thoughts. this has made it very difficult for me to focus on things that aren't directly related, such as a group to bitch about libertarians (because we know they aren't going to join the group just to argue with us, at least I wouldn't expect it) as opposed to actually fighting them out in the forums...
Enough of this small rant, I need food.

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]
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?
