    These folks usually don't feel it is necessary to try to silence others from having an opinion and expressing that opinion.


    Im sorry this disappoints a "freedom loving" liberal like yourself.
    Do they also feel they have no right to express their own opinion? If "no" then why didn't they express their disapproval? That doesn't require that they silence anyone, including themselves, as your straw man dishonestly implies

    That's actually the first time I've carefully listened. Paul talks about freedom and personal responsibility and the crowd goes wild. Blitzer asks if we should "just let him die" and I hear ONE "Yeah", ONE "yes" and a whoop amongst light laughter.

    This is overblown.

    Indeed.

    You and I are observing mass hysteria.

    How did this mass hysteria come to be?

    Feh.. I think you take a clash of worldviews and add a heaping spoon of "hear what you want to hear" and you explain lots of things...

    The so called"silent majority" has not been invoked since the Nixon administration. And it was a joke then also.

    The Tea Party is nothing like a "silent majority"; they are a very loud minority.

    It would be foolish to think the Tea Partiers aren't a "sleeping giant" in this nation.
