When politicians and the media want to have a discussion about morality or when they want to appear to have the conversation, they always turn to the “faith community.” They never think to ask an atheist and they should!

The Vice Presidential debate brought out a lot of interesting “stuff.” Even though it came toward the end of the debate, the one thing about this debate that I don’t think we can forget about is something that Paul Ryan said. When asked what personal characteristic he would bring to the table, he actually said, “Honesty.” In my opinion, that was the Big Bird moment of the debate.
Even though I voted for Obama in 2008, I never bought into the belief that he was a progressive Democrat. His record has always been moderate to conservative and as President he has been moderate to conservative just as his record had indicated. Some of my Democratic Party friends have told me that Obama is a progressive, but he hasn’t been able to get anything progressive done because the Republicans keep blocking him. I call bullshit.
