Rest in Peace,
You May Be A Redneck If You Care I Am A SOCIALIST

Since the start of the Bush/Cheney Regime, and especially since 9/11, I have felt very uncomfortable being personally associated with public "movements" and "organizations" against war and for peace and liberty, much less for "socialism", knowing expressing support for such interests is defined as "unpatriotic" and "un-American", and a trigger for government surveillance, in the neo-Con Era. I'm sure we of realneo have FBI files, and our emails and phone calls may be tracked. I don't care, anymore... none of that matters, now that Obama has been elected and we are within days of throwing the haters out of office and digging into the data they have been tracking. I know we are near enough to the return of free speech that even if we are added to some "Code Red" list now, it will be erased within a few months. And, we shall set people's records straight, and shall determine the extent to which Bush and his team should be prosecuted for violation of our civil rights and liberties.
So, when I received an email from might-be-a-socialist Steve Cagan titled "Join me in this historic moment!", asking for activism for Latin America, I was pleased to "Sign the Petition" he suggested, even though it associates me by name with an organization and beliefs that oppose neo-Con American policies and would be cause for concern from current American leadership, AKA Bush/Cheney. In doing this, it felt like suddenly civil "disobedience" is legal again. Here's Steve's message... check out the petition... you may want to disobey Bush/Cheney, and encourage peace and good policy for President Obama, as well...
