    We live in a Republic with democratic elections. What Americas 'want' is represented by the current make-up of the House and the Senate. I want more of a balance and will cast future votes accordingly.

    We don't live in a direct democracy--I'm not sure everyone attending these Town Halls understand this.
    It equals a majority and that's how thing work. I recall PBO winning with a 52% popular vote and the Libbos going on-n-on about how he won by a landslide and the American people have mandated change and blah, blah, blah.

    I don't support either side doing it. But why let one get away with hijacking your meetings. Fight fire with fire, or you face swift-boating.

    First, shoot all the lawyers.

    Second, real Pay for Play. Meaning, if you ain't got cash or coverage, don't expect a doctor to treat you.

    Those two alone should do wonders to reduce the cost of healthcare.

    The people are being removed are they not? So the police are called. But I sure as hell am not waiting for them to arrive while I am being shot.

    A little extreme. First off, you would have a major increase in the death rate, followed by Islamic takeover as our population was weakened by lack of healthcare for all but the wealthy.

    swift boating? So these Americans have no legitimate right to petition thier government?


    Why tarnish your neighbors because you disagree ith them?


    If they are being disorderly call the cops not union thugs.
    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    So what you're saying is that public meetings with elected officials should be conducted precisely according to whatever the politician wants to say, and the serfs should say nothing and applaud when ordered to.

    Unless it's a Republican politician.

    Yes, we'd have an increase in the mortality rate of people that aren't economically productive. Which is no different than what Messiah-Care is producing, but more reasonably applied. You seem to find offense as being realistic.

    You also failed to mention the islamic takeover that will happen when the US economy is destroyed by Messiah-Care.
