    Now, THIS is REAL democracy. This movement may turn out to be a more powerful force than campaign contributions.

    Consequently, congress better take notice. These people are HIGHLY motivated to vote incumbents of either party out of office.

    You're right. Mobs are real Democracy. That's why our Founders established a Republic. Because mob rule is worse than tyranny.

    You can always count on conservatives to either use hyperbole or use words innacurately in an attempt to confuse rather than to elucidate the issues. The dictionary defines a mob as:
    1 : a large or disorderly crowd; especially : one bent on riotous or destructive action.
    Or were you referring to these people as in the second definition?
    2: the lower classes of a community : masses, rabble

    If so, do you know what you're guilty of doing? You're guilty of doing the very thing that Republicans are claiming Obama does. You're engaging in class warfare because you're insinuating that the so-called "lower classes" are not quite as worthy of the constutional 'rights' that the upper classes can easily manage to buy with campaign contributions.

    They've gotten so partisan that they think democracy is just some unAmerican thing democrats like.
