America religion politics

Hello ill start off by saying i am not highly educated i have a diploma but have never gone to collage which sets me appart from many athiests as there is a direct connection between education and atheism. I am not an idiot however, i am intelligent though i may be ignorent. I am part of "Generation Y" as i was born in the 90s. I am a very left wing liberal to be fair im down right socialist. I belive socialism represents a better world. I have studied history hard core socialism dose not work but is you do a soft socialism say 75% socialism 25% capitalism it would be great. For example let government regulate big buisness and leave mom and pop stores to the private sector. I would also like to point out that i am appauled at the level of influince christianity has on the government and just as appauled at how many people want to make the bible the law..... Yes lets make the bible the law lets commit genocide and stone our children to death for being rebellious kill people for working on sunday or eating shellfish and lets reintroduce slavery into society..... its america 1256 AD. The rest of the world moves into the future we travel back in time 1800 years. Is anyone as terrified as i am of one of these christian right wing lunatics taking office. Why are we still in the middle east? Because of ISIS. Screw ISIS let someone els deal with them why dose america have to do all the work all the time? Let someone els clean up this mess. What are your thoughts on america the government the military religion law and so on

Welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum.

"i am not highly educated"
Education means nothing when it comes to intelligence.

Just to cheer you up;
Einstein left school at the age of 15 since he was smart enough to realize that qualifications were for getting a job and not acquire more knowledge, thus he could achieve much more with his time if he left.

"I have studied history"
That might be a subject we have in common, especially the history of how Christianity emerged and how propaganda developed in politics.(they are linked)

"What are your thoughts on america the government the military religion law and so on"

Well I think this joke sums it all up:

Son: "Dad, I have to do a special report for school. Can I
ask you a question?"

Father: "Sure son. What's the question?"

Son: "What is politics, Dad?"

Father: "Well, let's take our home for an example. I am the
wage earner, so let's call me Capitalism. Your mother is the
administrator of money, so we'll call her Government. We take
care of your needs, so let's call you The People. We'll call
the maid, The Working Class, and your brother we can call The
Future. Do you understand, son?"

Son: "I'm not really sure, dad. I'll have to think about it."

That night, awakened by his brother's crying, the boy went to
see what was wrong. Discovering that the baby had seriously
soiled his diaper, the boy went to his parents' room and found
his mother sound asleep.
He went to the maid's room, where, peeking through the
keyhole, he saw his father in bed with the maid. The boy's
knocking went totally unheeded by his father and the maid, so the
boy returned to his room and went back to sleep.
The next morning he reported to his father.

Son: "Dad, now I think I understand what politics is."

Father: "Good son! Can you explain it to me in your own

Son: "Well Dad, while Capitalism is screwing the Working
Class, Government is sound asleep, the People are being
completely ignored, and the Future is full of shit."

END :)

Like in any other democratic countries, corruption reins supreme, with the rich controlling the government, capitalism exploiting the middle class and the people end up paying for the mess in the end.

Jeff-You can't leave "it"

Jeff-You can't leave "it" alone" Why do you always go on and on and on trying to express in a fog of intellectual bullshit "everything"-which becomes nothing. Sometimes when you make it simple you almost make sense. Other times you (and everyone else) is lost in a fog of intellectual crap. .... With affection....God Bless

Hex 25. Your views on

Hex 25. Your views on politics(left-liberal-75% socialist) and your atheism puts you in the 95% smartest people in the United States. Your right smart people are more liberal and are mostly atheists.. Although young and not too educated your way way up there in intelligence. 75% of Americans are Christians and believe they will meet Jesus Christ(born from a virgin) and God in heaven when they die. 55% of Americans believe in Edam and Eve and the talking snake. 30% of people in this forum believe the bible or the Koran is the written word of God and take the bible literally. In terms of Politics Donald Trump is leading the republican candidates and Fox News is the leading "news program) on cable. Rush Limbaugh is #1 on talk radio with over 200 stations. It seems to me your sophistication in religion and politics puts you right up there with Albert Einstein. I am not kidding Albert Einstein was smart and so are you. Mr. Einstein was very smart in some ways but you are smart too for the way you "see" the world. Smart is as smart does. Think of all the morons who believe in Adam and Eve and the talking snake or Bill Oreilly(Harvard Graduate-Fox News). It would be an insult to say your just smarter than them because they are so ridiculous and dumb being smarter than them does not say enough. Hex--How smart are you -smart is as smart does and your way up there in SMART.. Just think 4 billion people in the world are Christians, Jews, or Muslim and believe in an imaginary "God"(man) in the sky(heaven. So your at least smarter than 4 billion people---add to that the idiots like Donald Trump and the imbeciles on Fox News then now your way over 4 billion. So your smarter than way over 4 billion people. So are you as smart as Albert Einstein I can't say but you are damn fucking smart............God Bless

Public information announcement(from The Pragmatic):

"fred,k" is actually the infamous troll of the Atheist Republic forum.

Generally referred to as "Kenny", has been banned many times under different names.
Previously known aliases include: "Kenny Schweiger", "Kenny", "myself", "alleycat", "richardd", "Christopher", "marken", "punkin", "amber", "Simon".

Claims to be an atheist. But he has a fondness for using "sarcasm", even though no one ever gets his sarcasm and he has been told this many times, he keeps posting such deceiving comments.

He seems obsessed with religions, creationists and the stupidity of Fox News, Bill O'Reilly, Joel Osteen, Ted Cruz, Sean Hannity, Donald Trump, Vanna White, Sarah Palin, etc.

This announcement will be posted whenever he spams, agitates, confuses or flies of the handle.

Also, he finds these announcements 'boring'.

EDIT: It is best if he is just ignored until a method to remove him completely is found.

Another joke that reflects my

Another joke that reflects my "thoughts on america the government the military religion law and so on":

The Americans and the Japanese decided to engage in a competitive boat race.
Both teams practiced hard and long to reach their peak performance. On the big
day everyone felt ready...

The Japanese won by a mile.

Afterward, the American team was discouraged by the loss. Morale sagged.
Corporate management decides that the reason for the crushing defeat had to be
found, so a consulting firm was hired to investigate the problem and recommend
corrective action.

The consultant's finding: The Japanese team had eight people rowing
and one person steering; the American team had on person rowing and
eight people steering.

After a year of study and millions spent analyzing the problem, the consultant
firm concluded that too many people were steering and not enough were rowing on
the American team. So as race day neared again the following year, the
American team's management structure was completely reorganized. The new
structure: four steering managers, three area steering managers, and a new
performance review system for the person rowing the boat - to provide work

The next year, the Japanese won by two miles!!!

Humiliated, the American corporation laid off the rower for poor performance
and gave the managers a bonus for discovering the problem.
