    I also noticed you did not include this quote from him:
    I fully support the distruption of Nuremburg Rallies.

    You got a problem with that?

    They are protesting the democratic process. They are going to forums and disrupting a democratic civil debate. WHY NOT DEBATE the issues. Fine, protest the health care plan, but lets talk about why. You don't have to yell, bring guns, draw swastikas on congressmen's signs, or protest a meeting. Town hall meetings are A FORUM FOR DEBATE. Yelling at a civil meeting is in fact unamerican. Is that even arguable?




    They go there to express thier opinion and to shout down the misinformation and ignorance being sold to them as "UHC"...


    Granted some get out of line but for the most part, passioned speaking is not "protesting the democratic proccess".....



    Look at the links i have posted over the last couple days, show me who is "disrupting", its the union thugs, and paid plants by the left.

    It's much easier to turn a town hall discussion on it's ear than it is to put together a march on Washington. But you have enough town hall meetings go south because some folks decide they are going to yell and scream and act like morons instead of intelligently addressing the issues they have...well that gets better airplay.



    pssst.....

    You did misrepresent his words. Let's look at the quote.



    Note the bolded part. Not people opposed to the bill, but people disrupting the town hall meetings.

    Are you people that ignorant, or simply to full of "hope" ("hope", with quotes, drops out the back end of the bull) to face reality?

    The reality is that any government plan HAS to include rationing because the budget isn't unlimited. Someone, and that's the name of the Faceless Bureaucrat, has to decide who gets what.

    So the Granny Board will become a reality.

    I've been saying that for years, on this forum as well.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
