    It's time to face facts. The town hall hecklers aren't "protestors" at all. Their only aim is to disrupt the meetings and rob you, the constituent, of the right to speak to your representative.

    This is a crime. Get that crime on video, and take it to both the local authorities and to the FBI field office. We can't tolerate this kind of activity in a free, democratic society.

    Its time to face facts. There are actually people out there (over half by last count) that don't agree with the whole idea of UHC and they are pretty pissed off that this government is willing to enslave generations of people to push another disastrous bill upon us. One that will take decades to undo.

    By all Means everyone. Please do bring a video camera and be sure to record the ENTIRE town hall meeting.

    I would like to see the whole event, too.

    Everything I've seen so far amounts to people chanting so that the Representatives never gt a chance to answer the questions hurled at them.

    I doubt that's the whole story, but that seems to be all that we're being shown.

    Most the video's I've seen of town halls have been quite civilized up to the point the politician opens their mouth to lie, spin or deflect. People have had enough of some asshole standing there lying to their faces and expecting them to stand there politely and listen.

    Unfortunitly the representatives are using stalling tactics like Obama, long non answer answers and laborious talking points , to eat up all of the alloted time.
    Then when and if they take a question they lie , all bets are off.

    Hate to offend you but in a free democratic society, there is something called Freedom of Speech. The people there protesting have every right in the world to be there and doing just that - voicing their extreme displeasure to a government that has lost all track of what the people in America really want. That is the truth and not spin when questions are asked. No bait and switch tactics that seem to be quite popular with the way this health care bill is being presented. Mostly people want a representative that actually cares about what they want as a voter that put them in office. What you don't seem to remember is the liberals shouting down people who were around to give a speech that didn't seem to fit their agenda. What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Sorry you have a difficult time understanding Freedom of Speech as defined in the Constitution.

    You mean civilized like code pink or the dozens of other disruptive liberal groups out there?

    They did ask questions like civilized people. When they were lied to, they became very irate. Just like civilized people do when they are faced with a government that they own lying to them.

    Well, I've seen at least two videos that showed people very emotionally, but quetly, asking questions and then listening to answers. It is only AFTER the answer is given that it starts to get out of control. But that is not all that unreasonable when people are being lied to.
