    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    What about people blocking an entrance to an abortion clinic or people blocking an entrance to a military recruiter office? Just a major part of the protest?

    The poll options are a little flawed.

    I think that protesters should be removed for all of the above (regardless of political persuasion)....I don't think they should be arrested for any of them (except perhaps throwing things...and only if they actually strike the person...that would constitute a "battery").

    Yes. Removed. If I go to listen to a speaker and people begin shouting incoherently they are not adding to the public discourse at all. Arrest is a bit much though.

    How is it flawed? The poll question asks-"What things should protesters be removed or arrested for?"
    "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.

    Would blocking abortion clinics and military recruiters constitute harm or a security risk? I do not think blocking entrances to abortion clinics harm anyone and it could be argued that if the military recruiters were only blocked every other day then there would be no harm to this nations security.
