OK People... let's try to get along here.

JVZ, like everyone else in this country, has the right to express his views - politically or not, however he feels fit. I do agree with the fact that he has them toned down a bit because of the fact that there are people in the band from both political sides. If you are a Veteran, I thank you kindly for your service - it's much appreciated - however, to state that the band "sides with and represents the party of hate" is a little harsh. One may not agree with your views, but it certainly doesn't mean that "hate" someone else. They just have different values, and come from different walks of life. Skynyrd's recent cd isn't even that political - their last cd was more so - but nonetheless, its not the kind of politics that are in your face.

You're entitled to feel and say what you will about whatever you feel. But to say Skynyrd and the Republican party represent the party of "hate" is a little strong. I'm Republican and I don't "hate" anyone. I disagree with people, but don't "hate" them because they value or view something differently than me

This is a perfect example of how divided our Country has gotten.

Music fans are arguing over politics when the band members agree to disgree politically, and infact Johnny stated that everyone in the band is simpatico. Gary even slyly suggested they would play the DNC as well! HA

But hey, if you want to attend a show where the performer leans left, and has no trouble advancing his policy points inbetween songs, may I suggest Bruce Springstein, John Cougar Mellencamp or Tom Morello.

As for me, Im sticking with Lynyrd Skynyrd.
