    I agree. This was a dumb thing to do and adds nothing positive to the ongoing debate.

    Again though, when you push an entire segment of people around, you get the lowest common denominator along with the rest of the group.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Classic tactic of the moveon.org types. Raise hell, then run away and make the Republicans look out of control.

    It's time for a ten million Americans march on DC.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    I'm wondering if non-compliance will be a problem. Imagine 10 million people saying **** off fed, I'm not buying insurance..... what could they do?
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    I don't know, but millions protesting in the streets would be a good start.

    True, but all too often the fringe is used to define the group as a whole. Look at some of the comments made on DP about the tea parties.

    I concede that. I'm more interested in the shock that these Democrats are showing at blowback, especially after the screwjob the last four years have been.

    Do you mean aside from fining them at least 695 dollars and when they refuse to pay seizing properties for non - payment?

    You're right. I wouldn't say you were advocating violence, but your wording would indicate you're not bothered by it, IMHO.
