With Corker and Clayton out of the Question, Write in Jim Maynard for Senate in TN

If your politics are anywhere to the left of Pat Robertson, the two major parties offer no viable option in the Tennessee Senate race.

This morning, I decided to check in on the progress National Atheist Party. One sign of progress is that the National Atheist Party has its own web site now. The first meeting of the National Atheist Party is also set for just a few days from now, this Saturday in Schaumburg, Illinois. [...]

National Atheist Party An Irrational Organization

It’s because I value the separation of the church and state that I can’t support the National Atheist Party. The National Atheist Party can’t succeed in putting any politicians in elected office in these conditions, and so, the National Atheist Party will succeed only in depicting atheists as an isolated, ineffective fringe.
