What Rights??

Angry Mobs??? People passionately voicing their concerns which is a constitutional right are now consider unamerican and called "angry mobs". Something that has always been an important part of our history, freedom of speech, is now being demonized.

Do not let this be lost on you. This is critical to what is happening in our country; the left is redefining those rights that are basic to our way of government. Rights that are a part of our great constitution. Your rights are being redefined in a way that makes you look unamerican.

Town Hall meetings in many cases are not true town hall meetings that sprouted centuries ago in New England. They are just forums for the Democrats to get out their agenda. In our Presidents case there is little to no crowd participation. More of a press conference.

In an orderly fashion, selected members of the audience pose brief questions, and the president elaborates.

And elaborates. And elaborates.

A look at President Obama's health care "town hall" Tuesday in Portsmouth, N.H., shows the president out-spoke his audience by a ratio of nearly 9-to-1.

Here's the scorecard.

Obama: 8,619 words.

Audience: 1,186 words.

That's hardly the kind of even-handed exchange of ideas that marked the town meetings of colonial America.

Come to think of it, angry mobs, at one time, changed the course of governments that were treating its people poorly. hmmm
