    Whichever rally disagrees with me the most at any certain point in time.

    Re: Tea Party vs Unions

    Depends on where each rally is held.


    For instance, Tea Party in down town NYC? Anti union? Probably gonna get violent.

    Or Occupy rally somewhere in Texas...could get violent.

    I never heard of a tea party rally getting violent,I have heard of a pro-union rally getting violent. So I would not take any family members to a pro-union rally.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I think the only way a tea party would ever get violent is if there happened to be a large contingent of Jeff Gordon fans in close proximity to a large contingent of Dale Earnhardt Jr. fans. Then, things could get ugly.

    The Tea Party is a group of self defined far right extremists. I have no problem believing their rally would turn violent.

    I would go to neither.
    Don't really care for populism, regardless of which side it's on.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I think i'll go with the group who has a history of being violent... Unions.

    there's been plenty of Tea Party rallies... none, to my knowledge, have been violent.


    you won't find me at either rally though... unless it involves motorcycles, I don't do rallies.

    I'm sure you have no problem at all believing that. You would, however, have a very hard time presenting evidence that shows a Tea Party rally which actually did turn violent.

    Granted, Tea Party rallies are only a recent phenomenon.
