Just an update at on this campaign for anyone who was interested by my initial post.
This is a video response from Ron Paul
His response is not what I would call a negative response but a typical Ron Paul response. He wants the smallest government possible. So when asked what he will do for atheist voters, he replies"Nothing”
More encouraging responses come from Tara Nelson, running for Congress-Indiana District 4, and Tammy Duckworth running against Joe Walsh for the 8th District of Illinois.
Tara Nelson emailed me her response to the question “What will you do for Atheist Voters?”, how do you feel about the recent passing of Indiana SB 89, and how do you plan to support the separation of Church and State
Thank you for contacting me. I do support the separation of church and
I am surprised that SB 89 was passed by the Senate. I am surprised by a
lot of legislative action taking place in the Indiana Republican General
Assembly. They are shoving their far right agenda on the entire state of
Indiana. The majority assembly has proven that because they had at least
51% of the vote, they will run 100% of their agenda.
There is not a lot that I can do about that as a candidate for U.S.
Representative. I have rallied at the statehouse with the teachers and
unions, but the only thing I can do as an Indiana resident is to vote
Democratic and ask my friends, family, and acquiantences to do the same.
The supreme court has already ruled “Creationism” unconstitutional, so I’m
not sure how Indiana G.A. will get away with this one. It will certainly
cause many lawsuits, and eventually be repealed.
Please stay in contact.
