Are there conservative Athiests or Agnostics out there?
Would you mind describing your top 3 reasons for your political position? (and please no answers like 'because Obama is a fraud' or 'because liberalism is a mental disease'. Those are bias, not reasons) 10 points to the clearest and best justified answer. A decent point. However, I feel that we are overpopulated. The closer we are packed together, the less freedom we can have without stepping on each other's toes. But, personal freedom isn't really the issue for me, it's corporations that have FAR too much freedom. The government needs the power to make an appropriate, limited playing field which cannot be cheated by money. Low taxes is always nice to have, but isn't our country dead broke right now? Musicanman: The self responsibility thing is a great point, that's the one view I really respect from the right. It's unproductive and actually ANTI-evolution to provide too great of a 'safety net'. Not that it should be impossible to recover if you fall that low... but it's a balance, and few people see both sides of this issue. Here's the problem with corporations: A) They can just step out of the American playing field and into a country with no rules and minimal, then sell things to Americans just the same. This allows them to break our rules and take outsource jobs. When this is the case, we will always have more imports than exports. What stopped it in the past was poor communication and slow travel; we no longer have this 'safety'. B) As somewhat of an environmentalist, I feel that they cannot be allowed to be completely free with their drawing of world resources and pollution of Earth. The government needs a rock-solid stance and lobbyists cannot be allowed to weasel them out of it. It's the governments job to establish the playing field, and money cannot be allowed to buy an exemption from the rules. sorry, I meant no rules and minimal TAXES... oops. I understand exactly what you mean about overtaxing corporations. Of course they'll leave. But I think they have reason to leave regardless. Why would a corporation follow our rules when it can pay very low taxes and be able to do get away with anything? Even if we could match the low taxes out there, we still aren't offering the freedom they could get elsewhere. And it's even worse when we go lax on rules to make them stay. Instead, we should: a) try to make sure there are no safe havens for immoral or exploitative business (duh, and I know we do try for this) b) make absolutely sure we hold up these fundamental 'rules' when strictly when dealing with imports. And no loopholes. Yes, this would be regulation.... But we cannot send money away to those eluding the rules of the playing field. So I feel that the way things stand, they will continue to leave and importation will increase. I think export/import imbalance is here to stay unless we can fix this; and it is kinda scary.

Low taxes, small government, and free markets don't know a religion. They are the proper way to function as a society...personal liberty springs undaunted from these things! Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are enabled by these things!
