That is the warning on the comments page of my new aquaintance;
Jueseppi B. – The Obamacrat
I posted my comment jokingly saying “At my own risk; that’s the only way I roll.”
But I got to thinking about that and it occured to me that rather than being just a joke; it’s the truth.
It is a sad truth; no doubt; but truth none the less in this country today.
After I read a statement Mr. B made on his page; I was moved to blatantly plagiarise his work; making changes and additions as I saw fit in order to present a similar statement about myself to you.
Cheeky, I know but hopefully not without some mitigation because it seemed so concise and poignient and so, me.
I have stated many of my beliefs and opinions on my site but I thought the time was right to make a clear statement of my position where President Obama is concerned and my politics in general.
A clear, concise picture of the Angryman and a reiteration of some of my strongest positions and beliefs.

Expressing opinions such as mine can always be considered to have a certain amount of risk
I say what I think and If you really are offended by it then it probably applies to you and I have done my job.
I tell the truth as I see it and my vision is pretty good.
I spit in the eye of any Republican SOB with the unmitigated gall to show himself in public and claim to represent the will of the American people.
I am a Liberal; but not to be defined by any definition of that label yet coined.
I voted for Barrack Husein Obama and will do so again; for the first time; with real pride rather than just desperate hopefulness.
Yes I voted for him because he is Black.
Yes I voted for him because he is intelligent.
Yes I voted for him because he is moral.
Yes I voted for him because he is a diplomat.
Yes I voted for him because he is sincere.
Yes I voted for him because he is savvy.
Yes I voted for him because he is thoughtful
Yes I voted for him because he is articulate (a quality far too rare in our politicians these days)
Yes I voted for him because I wanted to see the first black President.
Yes I voted for him because he represents a new wind blowing through our nation.
Yes I voted for him because he listens.
Yes I voted for him because he is NOT Me.
Not only do I support Obamacare and call it thus proudly but I am willing to state with all certainty and clarity of mind that this is the only piece of legislation passed in this country since the Civil Rights Act that has had a truly beneficial effect on the lives of the American people.
A signifigant change in the quality of their lives that could not be achieved even by paying higher wages.
I believe that the Republicans and their cronies and servants are and haved been using a divide and conquer strategy against the American people.
To keep us fighting between ourselves over race and religion and survival in order to prevent us banding together as a vast force for good and exposing their web of lies and deciept.
Now, where would I get such a fanciful notion about those fine young men over at the GOP?
Just paranoid I guess.
I believe in the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. that all of the poor and disenfranchised people of America would one day join together to set things right. To give real freedom to the people.
The same people we are fighting today are the ones who cut him down to prevent his taking the next step on his road to freedom and equality for all people.
The same ones who have always been the real movers behind the racist movement.
The same wealthy, Republican, Authoritarian, self-righteous, inhuman “Real Americans” who are relentlessly attacking one of the finest Presidents we have ever had.
And the next step Dr. King was already planning? A vast movement of the poor to demand equality and freedom.
This man had a vision. A clear vision.
He saw that in order for his dream of equality for all to be realized; it would require all of the poor; black; white; red and brown.
He knew that he must gain equality for his own people first in order for them to be an equal partner in the greater dream and movement that he envisioned.
Martin Luther King was not just a fighter for black rights and freedom. He was so much more.
He was a fighter for the rights and freedoms of all people; everywhere.
We have not seen another such as he and we may never see one.
I don’t believe President Obama is such a leader but he is a step in the right direction.
A position I asked him to fill.
A position I would never think to seek nor be able to handle.
So for the next four years Barrack Obama is my President.
My only worry is; who will we turn to next?
