No, I don't worry. But if I ever did indeed get in trouble for expressing my beliefs, I'd just remind all involved of the lovely little First Amendment. Besides, I'm quite used to people responding not so kindly to my lack of support for this administration's activities, anyway. And they're just as entitled to their opinions as I am to mine.

Keeping your hippie rants "hushed" is what they want you to do. Thats how they get control. Speak your mind loud and clear!

I live in a conservative town too. I'm careful about where I make my statements, and who I say them to. We've got nuts who do nothing but harrass liberals at local demonstrations, which are held twice weekly in a square close to where I live.

Heh, I live in the town where the old Haliburton headquarters are located, and which, if I understand it right, is the town Cheney called home for a time. And therefore, my dad and sister have both gotten flak from other people before about their criticism of Cheney, as well as the Bush administration in general. Wyoming has generally been a red state as well, after all...

Reminds me of a funny commercial I saw on the NFL Network.

The 2 guys who created Southpark (which I hate) were on it. One of them said something to teh effect of

"When we were young, if we weren't out harassing liberals, we were cheering on the Denver Broncos".

The first time I saw that, I almost busted a gut laughing.

I wish I had hung out with those guys in their youth...

Actually, I do live in a very conservative suburb, and I generally watch my tongue out of politeness, although I still express my opinion. For example, instead of "Bush is a lying douchebag" I might say "I disagree with many of Bush's policies."

Once I had a bunch of friends over though, and my little brother said: "I know what 'screw' means! My dad says that Clinton screwed a chick and Bush screwed the entire country!" Needless to say it was kind of embarrassing.

I know what you guys mean about watching what political statements you make in public. The person I work for is a staunch Conservative and she actually asked me who I planned to vote for in the European elections! I sort of stuttered that I hadn't really made up my mind (which was true, I wasn't sure whether to vote Lib Dem or Labour) and she responded by telling me "I'd expect you to be voting Conservative, you know with having a job and all." I'm sure she actually meant to imply that people who work hard should be Conservatives, but one of my friends used to joke that she actually meant she only employed Conservatives and I'd be out of a job if I'd admitted I wouldn't dream of voting for them.

I kinda like all those security cameras......I figure if I were walking down the street and suddenly fell down...someone would immediately come to my aid and pick me back up.

Besides, it's a way of life now..... .....one could just sit within the confines of one's own home and never go out and never make phone calls, watch TV or surf the internet........now I'm beginning to wonder about my eating habits......is someone tracking that too.....

This is becoming interesting..........(checks back of neck for implant marks)....

Oh Jesus Ive been waiting for a thread like this...every second of my day I wonder if the Bush Administration is going to send the FBI after me just because I voted for John Kerry in the last election...

America is the land of the free...no really..I promise...I swear it is....

This country is SPEEDING towards the same fascism and insanity that it was so so blatantly opposed to in WWII not to mention the fact that an ever growing segment of the US public probably thinks genetic engineering/eugenics really would be in the best interest of giving "baby" every advantage *cough* healthwise *cough* in the world.....Just you wait people....Nazi Germany will resurrect itself in America one of these days....why you ask....because Americans have a high tolerance for provincial idiocy....just look at our network television lineup.

Fascism is always just over the horizon in America.
