    Are you saying that these people are doing Sedition? And if not, then what the hell does it have to do with this thread or are you just trying to derail it?
    The thread is not about sedition, it is about a Republican operative who identified herself as "just a mom".
    Town hall meetings have been a fundamental right of the democratic process since the founding of this nation. The town meeting was even memorialized in a painting by Norman Rockwell. For people to crash such a meeting and refuse to allow discussion to take place is a travesty, and such people should be pushed out of the room. How can you disagree?

    What is that flaw? It's simple, both end up doing what's best for "the Party" over what's best for America.

    The GOP did it, and got booted, the Dem's are in the process of doing it, and the people are going "WOAH Hang on a moment".

    The difference I think, this time is that the Des did not anticipate such, an uprising from the people. And they've been caught off guard.

    Are there agitators paid for to show up and make a scene at political events... always. Are all these people showing up an unruly mob of paid operatives? No.

    The Dem's are making a serious, serious mistake trying to ignore the dissent against them, arrogance is not well tolerated by the American People, and right now, the Dem's are doing the "Let them eat cake" attitude, and it's gonna bite them in the ass.
    I have to disagree here. I don't agree with everything Obama is doing, but for the most part, I like his policies. I think that is the truth for most liberals, and that is who those we elected should be working most closely for,

    I don't recall you raising a fuss...

    Police used pepper spray to disperse crowds of protestors in Bingham Hall on Tuesday outside the room where former congressman Tom Tancredo was scheduled to speak on immigration but was forced to leave.

    Campus police also discharged a Taser, sending sparks in an arc they said was meant to disperse the crowd, not to subdue an individual protestor.

    Tancredo, a former Republican U.S. Representative from Colorado, a former presidential candidate and an outspoken critic of immigration, was brought to UNC by the new student organization Youth for Western Civilization.
    I guess it's only okay to stop speakers from speaking when they are Conservatives...


    After Tancredo entered the room, protesters kept him from speaking by shouting insults and holding a sign declaring “no dialogue with hate” in front of his face. Tancredo waited calmly while protestors held the sign and chanted.

    Two protestors holding the sign in front of Tancredo were escorted into the hallway by police, where the Taser and pepper spray were used.

    But are these policies really the best for America or the Democrats?

    Entitlement programs favor the Left, because people, once accustomed to being on the Government teat, tend to get upset when people try to take those away, and are easily scared into "They'll take away your XXXX" tactics. So the left panders to the entitlement crowd. Wince that's what's the hubub is all about, let's be honest here...

    Government run healthcare will be a huge boon to the DNC, and be very expensive to the Country...

    If you say that doesn't play into the desire to make it happen for the Dem politicians, you're blind.

    even if we do not count libertarians, we get 341 conservatives, which is still a significant majority.

    Democrats and republicans will rarely agree with what is best for the country. What he is doing is best for the country from the point of view of most(I suspect) democrats.

    Now now, that's not quite right...


    Most of the so called "independents" and "centrists" are rather liberal...


    How many of these are active posters as well?

    See,

    I don't hate Obama. I don't like him, I think his ideals are misguided, his policies scary and his methods suspect.

    But I think in many ways, he THINKS he's doing it for a good cause.

    Just as I did with Bush, I agreed with him more, naturally, I also had some serious issues with him too, but people tend to ignore that because ZOMG YOU AGREE WITH BUSH ON XXX YOU BUSHBOT!!!

    But I think both parties tend to think "Party first, America second". The more power they have, (i.e. bigger majorities) the longer they hold such power, the more they tend to... fall prey to this.

    It's just, power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.

    Then why did he try to bring sedition into it. I agree, I don't think Sedition has ANYTHING to do with this but HE made the accusation so I'm asking him to either explain how he feels it has something to do with the thread or relent on his derailment. Funny, you don't seem to want to try and play mod with him. I can only imagine why

    Town hall meetings have been a fundamental right of the democratic process since the founding of this nation. The town meeting was even memorialized in a painting by Norman Rockwell. For people to crash such a meeting and refuse to allow discussion to take place is a travesty, and such people should be pushed out of the room. How can you disagree?
    Town Hall Meetings are a "right"? Really? REALLY? I must ask Will, from where does this right to town hall meetings originate. I'm very interested to hear this.

    Additionally, how were these peopel "crashing" it. Did they show up uninvited? Did they break in? Those are the general requirements for one to "crash" an event. Was the town hall invite only and they somehow broke in?

    Or are you talking about the fact they're loud and making their voice heard? In which case, no, they're not violating anyones rights there. Those running the town hall however would be fully within THEIR rights, as the people responsable for running this thing, to ask these people to please stick to the format or leave. However no, unlike you apparently, I'm not infavor of vigilante justice of having people assult others simply for being loud during a discussion. Going to a town hall meeting, which is SUPPOSED to be interaction between individual citizens and their representitives, and being overly loud is not an illegal thing. Rude? Tactless? Sure, not illegal. However, placing your hands on someone else and physically assulting them by shoving them around IS.

    People not doing something illegal shouldn't have illegal activity done against them in response. How can you not agree?

    (Oh, also, I don't agree with people shouting over these representitives. I find that is wrong. I would be fine with a protest outside, or them coming in to ask a tough question, but not shouting over those talking. I don't think its WRONG for them to do it, I just don't agree with the tactic. And, unlike some on the left crying about this now, I've been consistant with this view in the past when liberals have done it to conservatives. I don't think its wrong, I just don't agree with the tactic.)
