RE: can an atheist be conservative?
Have not read this entire thread yet so I apologize if this point has been made. Anyway, one of the problems with this question is, at least in the US, "liberal" and "conservative" has come to mean "Democrat" or "Republican". The problem is those the two major political parties are neither, per the actual definitions of the words, liberal or conservative. They certainly lean more one way than the other, but you can be a liberal or a conservative and be completely disgusted by both parties equally.

Btw, whomever said they thought Bernie Sanders was the best choice for POTUS out of all the options: absolutely agree. And, the worst choice is just about everyone else running. I don't even know where to begin on how bad the field is. Sanders isn't perfect but compared to Clinton and Bush he is certainly is.

Conservative perspectives can be relate to many different things. Even a hardcore conservative will unknowingly have at least one liberal stance on a particular point. However, it does depend on what you mean by conservative as it is quite a broad term.
