THIS LIST IS OF COURSE IS INCOMPLETE, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO ADD TO IT.

My recomendation is to contact ALL the Candidates even if you are not going to vote for them. The purpose is to face them all with the fact that non-religious and secular religious people vote too. Ask them what they are doing for voters outside their religious label in supporting "No Religious Test" as per the U.S. Constitution.

AGAIN, this thread is not an endorsment for ANY candidate, and is for information perposes only.

Please also feel free to copy this post and past it at other websites as well. The more secular voters both theist and non-theist we can get to get ALL CANDIDATES to focus on real issues the better off America will be and less devided on issues that should be left up to the individual rather than in the hands of any Repubican or Democrat.

MY POINT IS THAT AT EVERY

MY POINT IS THAT AT EVERY LEVEL FROM LOCAL TO NATIONAL YOUR VOICE DOES COUNT. DONT TAKE A BACK SEAT "JUST BECAUSE" They've always done it that way.

If you are born in America and subscribe to a different deity than the majority or no deity at all YOU ARE STILL AN AMERICAN AND YOU ARE BEING IGNORED BY ALL PARTIES.

This isn't about just atheists. This is about our polititians and the pandering they do to Christians while ignoring all the other religious voters and non-religious voters expecte US to take a back seat to Christians politically. The only way that will change is if YOU get involved and tell them to stay out of such a personal issue that should be left up to you.

NO RELIGIOUS TEST! It is up to us to fight back against religious pandering and get our politicians in both parties on the goal of problem solving issues and leave our religious views alone. Neither party takes non-Christians of any label outside Christianity as a serious voting block. IT IS WAY PAST TIME TO TELL THEM THAT WE WILL NOT BE IGNORED ANY LONGER!

To Jews, Muslims, Buddhist, Wiccian, ect ect ect ect.....You are being ignored as a voter. It is time we ask our government stay out of that issue and stick to problem solving through common ground.

Your religion is up to you NOT THEM! Dont let them tell you what it means to be an American. Don't let them continue to ignore you.

IT IS UP TO US TO GET BACK TO "E-PLURIBUS UNUM" and away from theocratic politicians pandering to Christianity only. Just because you are a minorty doesnt give them the right to ignore you.

Hit them with your voice and remind them that YOU are just as important and American as any liberal or conservitive Christian. YOU MATTER AS MUCH AS THEY DO.

YOU ARE AN AMERICAN TOO!|

This isnt a one time thing

This isnt a one time thing either. This takes continual partisipation.

Show up to campain events get face to face with the candidates if you can. Show up to the live debates and try to put yourself in the postion of asking a quetion in front of the audiance.

There will be other YouTube events for future debates so partisipate and vote in those too. If Brian can get on Nighline, and Newsweek does a story about "non-religious" voters. THIS SHOULD BE EVIDENCE THAT YOU CAN BE HEARD!

It just takes time and effort and continual partisipation.

Together both secular theists and atheists can reverse pulpit politicing and get our government back to the neutral position it never should have left.

The only way to garuntee failure is to never try.

I am going to make it a point to bump this thread every day untill ellection day.

Bump.

Bump again,

Use it or lose it. Your voice counts. Infidel Guy made Wife Swap, Brian Sapient made Nighline and atheists had their first question answered in a nationaly telivised debate on CNN.

YOU DO MAKE THE DIFFERANCE!

We are not out to opress or hate. We merely want people to think about the claims they make and most of all we want a goverment that doesnt play favorites to any religion.

YOU DO MATTER AND THEY ARE LISTENING!

There is a Republican debate in September, HIT THEM NOW and hit them often!

You want secularism, then

You want secularism, then Mike Gravel is your guy.

Mike told Rev. Welton Gaddy on State of Belief

http://www.stateofbelief.com/site/apps/nl/content2.asp?c=ioIKLLOoGlF&b=2696965&ct=3998945

that he's a Unitarian and wants to run the country as a secularist. He doubts there is a proper role of religion in politics.

He also stated that morality should not be legislated and that the right wing churches are focusing too much attention on people's personal lifestyles and not on ending or finding solutions to war.

He also disapproved of the CNN discussion of religion with the other candidates, of which he was not invited.

Bump. Remember folks, there

Bump.

Remember folks, there are pleanty of debates to come before November 08. Also show up to live events too if you find out where the Candidates show up at. You dont even have to be voting for them, the key is to get close enough to ask them what they are willing to do for non-religious and non-Christian voters.

Bump. Contact all

Bump.

Contact all canidates, not just the ones you will vote for. Let them know that more than Christians are citizens of this country. This isnt just about atheists. This is about anyone born in this country who has a right constitutionally to compete politically. 

This is not left or right, religious vs non-religious. This is strictly constitutional. If you are a legal citizen, and you met the constitutional requirments YOU CAN RUN FOR OFFICE. You are allowed to compete.

This post is not only to encourage atheists, but to all who fall outside the "Christian" label both left and right. This is not an advocation to "never vote for a Christian". But a reminder to those in power, and to those running, that they have a duty to all citizens and not just those they agree with.

Your vote counts. Your voice matters. For far too long I have seen a division between religion and ideology, things that should be left up to debate, not issues of law, or lawmakers. For far too long I have seen good people, other than a label, seek lines in the sand rather than overlap.

Our Constitution is not atheist owned, Jesus owned, or "any" owned". It is a LAW that says that NO ONE, not you, not me, not them, are intitled to a monopoly of power. It doesnt say that religious people cant partisipate, but merely that they cannot base laws on their views.

The sad fact is that Mitt Romney and I(not that I would run) have something in common. We cant get ellected, not based on record, but on label.

"No Religious Test" only refures to the government, not the voters. I think however, the Constitution  giving us all freedom combind with not having to swear in to any god, is a reminder, not a ditcation, but a riminder, that it is THE PERSON, not a deity, that you are voting for. 

It may not be against the law for a voter to vote for someone because they are a "Baptist" or "Christian" or "Jew", but Richard Dawkins said it best "I dont want you to vote for me because I am an atheist, I want you to vote for me because you think I will do a good job". 

Capitialists often toute "The best man for the job", well, do labels or actions determine that?

I am feed up with both Republicans and Democrats and their marketing and focus groups. I am feed up with the idea that uttering "Jesus" will bring peace anymore than uttering "Allah" will bring peace.

Peace, be it politically here, or anywhere is not about dominance in being the alpha male. It is about problem solving, cooperation and conflict resolution.

Your vote counts, your voice counts. This country diserves better than division based on Jesus. This country diserves better than a back of the buss attitude toward any citizen.

All reading this need to know, if they dont already. Atheists will and do vote for theists. And atheists I know personally would not vote for other atheists, if they ran. I know some myself I would not vote for.

The issue SHOULD BE SIMPLE, but Washington both left and right try to myre it for power control intsed of problem solving. A label doesnt make you a problem solver, actions do. Not actions to your base, not actions to pander, but actions that do the most good, not for you, or your base, or your party or your religion, actions that do the most to feed people, reduce violence, and maintain freedom and individuality.

We fight each other, not because we want to, but because most likely, someone else told us we had to. It is time that WE THE PEOPLE, mean WE THE PEOPLE. It is time that we compete, not in the intrest of crushing, but expanding the best ideas. It is time that differances be settled in debate(including blasphemy) without fear.

No atheist or Christian or Jew or Muslim or anyone deserves "authority" "Just because". What makes America great is not following "Just because", but "Because I can". 

Because at one point  a woman was told she could vote or be ellected. Because at one point a black person couldnt run for office. Because at one point no one would ellect a Catholic for president. AND ALL OF THEM DID, ALL OF THE DEFIED AND ALL OF THEM PROVED THEM WRONG.

If you are born in America YOU CAN. NO ONE CAN TAKE YOUR LEGAL RIGHT TO RUN FOR OFFICE AWAY FROM YOU (not just atheists).

E-Pluribus Unum means something to me. It doesnt garuntee the majority or the minority a monopoly. But it should garner the respect to know that dissent that is not allowed to exist a benifit to none and a horror to history.

Voting should not be a power grab for either the left or the right, Evangelical or atheist. It should be "Who is going to do the best job".

And dont forget to go to "community counts" and vote for the "unofficial theocracy" video too.

Let the canidates know that non-believers vote too and we are tired of being marginalized and ignored.

Contact all the canididates weither you are voting for them or not.
