I believe in the free exchange of ideas.
    i am bothered because on the the stupidity of people believing that they are empowered to exercise a right or any right ...........on something not theirs.

    this was not a free exchange of ideas, person one excised it thru his vehicle without touching or entering property, the other sought exercise to get even...... thru using of another person's property.

    its is probability a good thing the owner was not there, someone dumb enough to write the letter with such content, who have probability taken on the owner in more then just words.

    these things happen when people are unable to check their emotions ..keeping them under control.

    The reality is that the healthcare reform that Obama originally proposed was very different from what the ACA is today. The reality is that Republicans dug in their heels and wouldn't even discuss it. As a compromise, Obama ditched the public option and replaced it with the Republican idea drawn from the Heritage Foundation of the Insurance Mandate. This is the part of the ACA that most people dislike the most. Did Republicans vote for the new (unimproved version)? No, but it was enough to get the bluedog democrats that were afraid of their own tails to vote for the ACA. So the reality it, Republicans are very much responsible for the version of the ACA that we got because it was a direct result of their refusal to even consider the public option and was in large part a Republican idea that they had supported in the past, offered as a compromise to seek their support.

    But hey....like I said, if a mischaracterized one - liner fits you better......more power to ya.

    LOL right, not voting for the law means they voted yes for it.

    Unbelievable

    Seriously? Do you feel the same anger and rage when people leave a phone book on your front door stoop or a pizza menu on your mailbox? Seems like the people with the problem are the people who get emotionally outraged over a free exchange of ideas or by having their ideas or beliefs challenged.

    Not what I said.....your contention...or the contention of the one-line bumper sticker is that Republicans have no responsibility for how the ACA ended up. That is factually incorrect, but like I said...if you feel more comfortable with a mischaracterized one-liner, more power to ya.

    no but i also know the phone book is not left as an negative message for me.

    if you had a democrat candidate sign in your yard, and i didn't like it, does that empower me to write you notes, which show my displeasure with your chose, and leave them stuck on your front door?

    Not what he said, but I didn't really expect anything more than a strawman from you.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

Attach below are pictures of my bumper stickers and the note on my car from today.
    I've almost always found that those with a penchant for making public 'statements', are those deserving of such animosity.

    Certainly....wouldn't bother me at all. As long as you don't deface or destroy the yard sign, I'm emotionally secure enough to deal with and accept the free exchange of ideas. Now, if it were a death threat, that would be a different story. See....I accept the reality that by taking a political position, there may be others who disagree with me. I'm ok with that.
