If you are an openly atheist libertarian politician, can you overcome the biases by claiming to be gay?

Softly, softly, catchee monkey.

Very true, but not my fault you weren't specific Tongue

Ah, but I was specific... I said IN politics. Retired former politicians are not IN politics. Thumbsup

Damn, you win this round...

Although I am sure there are some, they're just closeted for votes.

Of course. If 20 percent of Americans are non-religious then math dictates it's next to impossible there are zero non-believers in politics. There is that guy who took his oath wearing the strainer on his head, but that is some bottom-tier position. It's a start, though.

I don't think that's true... there's at least a few...

Closeted, maybe. Our theocracy makes this illegal, though.

Truth seeker.

Exactly, that's more or less what mean. I dunno, I'm about to go to bed, maybe I'm thinking of something else. Fucking hate ADHD...

I believe there are only seven states where it's illegal.

I want to make the world a better place than it was when I came in to it, and a friend of mine suggested that I get involved in politics. I'd been half-considering it for a while, but from everything I'd heard about it, it wasn't something I wanted to get involved in. I really want to try to establish more music programs in schools and work to improve the healthcare system and other things. I'm alive so I might as well try to make the world better, and I feel like I could do that if I got involved in politics or something related, but from everything I've heard, I'm not so sure. Any thoughts?

Maybe where you live.

I actualy have the feeling that getting politicaly engaged can change your community.

We are after all the country which chose to say goodbye to nuclear power plants due to people power.

And the people who ripped down the Berlin wall.
