    I'm a democratic socialist living in Atlanta, and although I'm new to this board, I know several posters here who I've met over the years.

    I'm an Oracle DBA and freelance writer, but I've also spent some time working for the US Congress as a Press Secretary.

    I've spent much of my adult life involved in politics and grassroots activism .. and I was heavily involved in the fight against the fraud of electronic voting .. which we proved to be a fraud.

    Oh yeah .. and I died last year .. saved by my dog.

    I think I'm going to like it here.

    I never knew about your dog. But again welcome BAC - yes you will enjoy it here, it may get a bit willing at time but it lacks the sophisticated spite of some other forums. here we just get into it and have a good old time! :D

    Hi BAC. Welcome aboard. I believe you know me from another board as Backstreetgirl. Nice to see you here.

    Welcome!!! I think you are going to be great for these boards. But don't expect Republicans/Conservatives to get what you are saying. Just the fact that you said you were a socialist means they will refuse to comprehend a word you type out. They'll just hear bla bla socialism, bla bla socialism.

    Hey, isn't that scumbag Bob Barr from Atlanta? What do people say about him in Atlanta?

    Welcome! So I'm guessing you're a Cynthia McKinney supporter?

    Thank you

    I have no problem with posters who have a problem with socialism. I have no problem defending my beliefs or my perspectives. In fact, I announce what I believe as bait .. :eusa_angel:

    Barr is from Georgia and the McCainiacs are worried that he will swing just enough votes away from McCain to swing the state to Obama .. which is possible because Georgia has a large black population.

    However, Cynthia McKinney is also from Georgia and she's running as the Green Party candidate. She could attract just enough votes away from Obama to nueter the Barr effect and swing the state back to McCain.

    Thank you, and you would be correct.

    I know Cynthia very well.
