    Perhaps I should have used left/right instead of conservative/liberal?

    Can you look at it that way?

    Would have been a step up at least. Not so hard to put a "I don't lean either way and..." option though.

    Sorry, Telekat. But no lean doesn't really apply anyway - if someone has no lean then they wouldn't hold a partisan stance on this issue, and that's the point of this thread - to show the divide between left and right on even an issue like this.

    Another poll specifying it is only for absolutist partisan people.

    But I do have a lean. It's just not liberal or conservative.

    The poll is directly intended for partisan people. Though most people who say they aren't partisan are kidding themselves.

    I wish the labels in your poll could be removed, because I don't identify with any of them. If I were able to honestly vote in your poll, I would say that the driver of the vehicle was clearly within their right to defend themselves.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    And generally speaking, if you think the guy should be charged, you would think he was was wrong. If you think he shouldn't, then the protesters were wrong. It's not a difficult concept.
    I actually said that I wouldn't mind this going to a jury trial. How should I vote? Your whole argument in that thread is that only the driver's actions should be scrutinized but not the actions of the crowd in impeding traffic.
