Instapundit has a great post here on a climate of fear regarding expressing one's political beliefs in America. The second post he links to is wonderful - I really admire this one woman's openness given her background and where she's from. Given where I'm from and what realm I work in (Cambridge/Somerville, work in not for profit), I've learned that it's just easier to keep my mouth shut rather than try to express myself to people who not only will not listen to me, but who seem to think that a valid rhetorical device is to call someone with a differing point of view 'Nazi' or 'Fascist.'
