The Rationalist Party

Imagine a government without bullshit. Imagine if the government focused on issues that actually matter, rather than on ancient superstitions like banning same-sex marriage and getting the 10 commandments posted in government buildings.

Applying Rationalism to Politics

Far too long have religious advocates been in charge of politics. The same people who believe in a talking snake and that Jonah lived in a whale, and the very same people who are wasting effort trying to get the 10 commandments (which they believe came from a guy thousands of years ago from a conversation he had with a burning bush) in courthouses, schools, and other government institutions, and the same people who have banned homosexual marriage because of a verse in an ancient compilation of fairy tales.

Just imagine for a moment a government without bullshit. Imagine if the government focused on issues that actually matter, rather than on ancient superstitions.

Our founding fathers would be unelectable today based on the unwritten religious test on those running for public office in this country. John Adams rejected the idea of the trinity and the divinity of Jesus. Many of our founding fathers, including Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Paine were Deists, meaning that they believed in a god that created the universe, then left it to its own devices. Their god was not concerned with human affairs, so they governed without the bullshit of the gospels. The 1796 Treaty with Tripoli states that the United States was "not in any sense founded on the Christian religion", yet today our nation has been hijacked by those who claim it to be. In a letter to the Danbury Baptist Association, Thomas Jefferson wrote, "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between church and State."

hi i reaearched the treaty of tripoli, and found that tho it was ratified by congress and signed by adams, the next treaty we signed with tripoli after we beat them had no such article.

still it was ratified, so it was law.
