God is the head of this nation and I think this is tough for some atheist and secularist to grasp.
We get our God given rights from our Creator and the government is set up as a secondary appendage to protect those God given rights but the government gets it's power from the people and not the other way around.
I think this is why you see this split.
Many liberals, atheist and secularist don't believe in God so are rights come from the state. This means the government is almighty and they push for a nanny state.
Most Conservatives have a belief in God and they want less government and more individual control because they believe our individual rights come from our Creator and government is there to protect our rights.
The question is if your rights do not come from a Creator then where do your rights as an individual come from?
If there's no God, then you have no rights except those that other men want to give you.
