    Correct, and thanks for proving my point. You could say this about any politician, with Obama being an extreme example recently, yet you generally don't yet of course you come out swinging about it with Beck. Making your comment look incredibly disingenuous.

    How about that last sentence? Is he saying that "you" are convinced?
    There's no indication prior to the "I'm convinced of it" to indicate he's switching into that type of phrasing again. Its the end, after saying that YOU'LL make the changes and stating his view on that.

    Yes, the spoken word's intent can get lost in print. Whoever transcribed this should have put that line in quotes if that was the intent of that line.

    What game is he referring to anyway?
    He mentions the game earlier, talking about being part of the problem or the solution in Washington. He references the game in that passage, talking about how "you don't have to solve Washington. The tea parties have the backdrop of the capitol. The capitol could go into a giant sinkhole as far as I'm concerned. Doesn't matter to me. You are not going to be able to go in there and fix that."

    The game, that he's referencing, is the political game played on the capital where people are trying to fix Washington. He's suggesting you can either keep playing that, or be like what he's describing Washington and Lincoln as doing and fix the COUNTRY.

    He didn't say, "You have to ask yourself one question."
    No, he said "Once you do that and then make your choice"

    Seriously, I'm not a fan of Beck, but in no way shape or form is he suggesting he's like Lincoln or Washington

    Not all polls are for everyone. Why do people seem to think there needs to be an option for all people on every single poll?

    Why do you believe that your motives in posting this poll aren't completely transparent?

    They only see what they want to see. Glenn could say "Waffles are just the best food for breakfast. I just love eating them" and people like IT would say "I can't believe he thinks he's better than waffles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He said IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!!"

    Because the attempt to create a poll option for the full possible range of opinions on the matter helps make the poll appear to be less biased.

    By the way, can't vote in the poll. I've got no interested in attending, but don't really care that its going on so won't be protesting.

    But the poll is only for those who care. If you don't care, just pass it on by (as the OP clearly said). And, no, not all polls are for everyone. Would you answer a poll asking if you have cervical cancer or if you're pregnant? Do you think those polls should have an option that reads "No, I'm male." LOL!

    I don't understand what it's for. So I'll neither be protesting, nor attending. Or paying any attention to it, for that matter.

    The poll doesn't have an option for "No, I don't care." And it should, because that is a legitimate response. Otherwise, your results are skewed.

    He has every right to have his rally. Big deal.

    Does the date August 28, 1963 and place picked for this rally have any meaning?
