Politics, Economics, and Religion

Religion has so many connections to political and economic beliefs, there needs to be a place to identify linkages, problems, goals, options, action plans and evaluation criteria.

What is the purpose of life?

An eternal question, what is the purpose of life?, occupied philosophers’ thoughts throughout history. Stone pictographs reveal even primitive peoples reflected on this query. Each one has the capacity to define his or her personal thinking about politics, economics and religion.

Oh and Davey have you considered putting your Texas discussion in the Texas Heathens group on the site? It would be a great addition to the Texas group.
Did you know the next Freethought Convention will be in Austin, TX? I made a discussion on it in the Texas group.

Davey I'm a fellow Texan like you and I just loved your discussion on Texas. I think we understand each other well - and we are both from Texas.

Hey guys, found this link, it starts off as comic book stuff but quickly switches into politics- and horribly offensive viewpoints. I left a nice post there detailing his errors if anyone would like to as well

Read the second most hopeful article this week at CNN.com

Sociologists of religion have observed that immigrants often become more religious after arriving in the United States. So it could be that Chinese Americans, who are roughly half unaffiliated, will become more Christian or more Buddhist over time. But for now it seems that Asian immigration is doing more than making America wealthier, more educated, and more liberal.

It may also be making the United States less religious.

Lillie, you describe the situation accurately, the Executive, Legislative and Judicial Branches of government are bought and paid for. The one person/one vote is no more. Money buys our political representatives and citizens do not have a voice. This is a sad and true reality. 

May I recommend Democracy School material 

Democracy School On-Line 

It gives you information about why and how our government works, the laws and Supreme Court judgements that molded what we have. Both political parties are caught in a trap they can't get out of, just as a bear is caught in a trap. Candidates' minds are bound by principles that work for owners of capital but suck the wealth out of the owners of labor. 

I see no future in Democrat or Republican parties ... they are both already bought. A few lone wolves exist, i.e. Bernie Sanders, but laws are written and the Supreme Court passed judgment to create a nation for owners of capital and if we cannot recognize that, we will be putting our time, money, energy, loyalty down a bottomless pit.

You state it correctly, Lillie. Money now buys Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of government. 

May I suggest Democracy School material for you to read. It is a scathing indictment of our current political system.

I shall not be voting Democrat or Republican this year. They may have different names, but they are mind-bound by economic theory that guarantees Booms and Busts. There is no other option, the design of their theories have them trapped as a bear is caught and don't know how to get free. If they knew how, they would.

There are other options.
