    Gotcha. Because arguing turnout numbers at Washington rallies is strictly a behavior of the "right".

    The national Park Service supposedly no longer publishes crowd size estimates, because they pissed everyone off with their 600,000 Man March, I mean, Million Man March numbers.

The American Christian Right believes in large government when it comes to social issues. So does the left. The issues are just different. Glenn Beck and his associates believe the government should determine the kind of bedroom business citizens engage in. The left believes the government has an interest in how citizens fare in life. This weird belief people have that the government of 'today' suddenly got bigger is quite unfounded. The U.S. government has been 'Statist' from day one. It's just been 'statist' about different things.
    My bet is you don't watch and have never watched Glenn Beck. I really don't blame you for being scared of religion. Your belief in a large central govt. is just a way of diverting attention from you being in the minority in your own state and looking for someone else to bail you out and to put into place policies your state has probably rejected.

    The size of the Federal Govt. is determined by the budget of the Federal Govt. It is hardly the govt. that was envisioned by our Founders. Those that attended the rally this weekend are a lot like you, out of touch with reality.

    Isn't it bizarro that The Rally to Restore Sanity has as it's headline performer a terror supporter?

    Now that is insane.

    On February 21, 1989, Yusuf Islam addressed students at Kingston University in London about his conversion to Islam and was asked about the controversy in the Muslim world and the fatwa calling for Salman Rushdie's execution. He replied, "He must be killed. The Qur'an makes it clear - if someone defames the prophet, then he must die."

    maybe we should ALL worry less about rallies, and more about actually fixing problems?

    Just a thought.

    What we have in a campaigner in chief who tells the minions what they want to believe. He is actually spending as much time being President as he did being a Senator. Apparently telling people what they want to hear trumps actual results. You could see that over the weekend at the Comedy Central Rally as most of those people were out of touch with reality and in fact had no idea what reality is. It really is a shame that we have such a dumbing down of the electorate.

    Actually, the size of our federal government is determined by the PEOPLE YOU ELECT TO REPRESENT YOU IN CONGRESS. Which is exactly how our founding fathers envisioned it, since that's the system they created. Durr.

    I'm really tired of Americans who don't understand basic American civics.
