    ...You must be able to actually HEAR what is said. The opponents of health care reform want to prevent you from even hearing the words of the pro-reformers.
    If their views are better, what are they so afraid of that they don't even want us to hear the words????

    From what i understand is that the "paid prepretatiors" were responding to a whopper of a statement by an elected official. So the pro "reform" side politician did get his chance. And the public responded.

    This topic is not an attempt to prove anything. It is meant purely see where we stand on attempts to inhibit First Amendment rights of others, if that is taking place.

    Is it OK to do that? (interfere with the free speech rights of others)

    No, I mean the honest ones.

    The vast majority of Americans have health coverage and don't want the government hosing them, which is the only thing government is capable of doing.

    The Left's bogus claim of "xx million" people uninsured or not covered or dying or whatever other scare-phrase they feel is most suitable this hour, can be usually reduced by a factor of whatever it is to make it equal to 10 million or so because that's the proper number.

    Again, we're seeing the usual "lets inflate the numbers because we're leftists and leftist starts with an "L" just like lying does". Or don't you remember the mythical six million homeless that infested America until Reagan left office, Bush left office, and a slimy Democrat took the White House? Suddenly, we're exterminated over five and a half-million or so vermin, because the number of "homeless" dropped to less than half-a-million practically over night. Naturally, the Left wants to keep a solid supply of homeless, because they've learned how handy it is for them to have a bunch of living bodies on h and who will sell their vote for a pack of beer and some smokes.

    Are you getting the picture of just how utterly despicable the Democrats are and just how aware the general public is of their short-comings, their deceits, and their basic inherent corruption, and how the real people of this country are paying attention and won't let this sleazebag Democrat government continue to steal their freedoms without protest?

    We do not need special laws to prohibit the "inhibition" of Free Speech. We have laws that prohibit Disorderly Conduct. I do not consider an elected official or some other person in a capacity of power, who begins to lie about what you will get with some government program to have their speech infringed when some one loudly disagrees with them.

    An infringement of Speech occurs when a person who uses coercion against others either thru the legal actions or thru illegal activity. The former can open to a lawsuit and possible prosecution for malicious use of the courts and other Councils, etc. The second is of coure is illegal.

    There is a fine line between free speech and acts of intimidation.

    From where I sit, I'd say the brownshirts disrupting the town hall meetings are cut from the same cloth as those who stormed the recounts in Florida in 2000. They are not interested in fostering free speech but in preventing it.

    Then why did your party get thrown out of: The House...The Senate & the White House?

    You guys now have NOT ONE Congressman in the entire northeast. (& no prospect for picking any up in the near future)
