Hello Socialist Fools...

A few of you may have read some of my posts over on PA.

I hope it's not too rude to have just invited myself over here, but I just noticed this board and funny enough...I'm in a crazy state of transition.

Long story short:

-I grew up in a Conservative Republican household.

-I was a registered Republican until 2002, at which point I began to veer over to the Dems

-I've voted blue since the 2004 Presidential elections, and voted for Barack Obama last Fall.

-I'm a war vet - US Army - My experiences in Iraq have been most of what has motivated me to move further and further leftward

(before any crazy right or left wingnuts think about recruiting me into some bizarre militia, it should be known that war has thoroughly transformed me into an avid pacifist and a strictly non-violent activist...lol...move on over to the next loony war vet, you'll never get this one to wave a gun around again...)

-I am wholly dissatisfied with the Democratic Party, its leadership, its domestic monopoly on leftist ideals and its refusal to hold the previous Executive Branch and its agents accountable for violations of international and domestic law including war crimes and torture, crimes against peace and the invasion and subsequent occupation of sovereign nations posing no threat to the USA.

***

I've been reading about different political organizations and parties...most do not suit me. I suppose I am so far most attracted to the Socialist Party of the United States of America, but do not know much about them except what's been made available online (wiki, their home page, etc.)

I'm simply asking for ideas and guidance in regard to political affiliation. Anyone with any thoughts, suggestions or ideas...please don't hesitate to respond.

Thanks,

-R51 (AKA Maynard Leopold, practicing Socialist and distributor of SKULLZ)
