    Why would there be Civil Unrest BEFORE an election? Local Cops can't handle that :confused:
    DHS gears up for civil unrest prior to presidential elections — RT

    I always thought that the entire United States was a "free speech zone".

    And since when has the RNC been allowed to determine what and where is a "free speech zone"? :confused:

    Yes, if Romney wins look forward to a return of the remote, all but invisible designated protest zone, nice of Obama not to continue that crappy little Bush invention.

    This kind of thing has been going on for a while, and it's not party affiliated. Look, the RNC and the DNC are as much a celebration as it is a political convention. Let the delagates have their day in the sun. I don't begrudge them that.

    They shouldn't have to wade through a horde of protesters to get to the big event.

    Maybe it's just me, but as much as I disagree with GOP policy and ideology, I don't hate them, and for that one day? Just let them be...if one doesn't choose their battles, they end up looking like assholes....just look at the Tea Party as an example...they daily find new shit to be outraged about and America is starting to tune them out like the little boy who cried wolf.

    I disagree with your part of the Tea Party, but the overall tone I do agree with

    Both men are fairly moderate, neither has the drawbacks of candidates of recent history: Bush II/Cheney/Edwards/Reagan/Agnew/LBJ, etc.; the protests and strong emotions aroused by the two surprise me.

    Don't you think that the 24 hour news cycle has something to do with that? I mean, these news outlets have to fill a hell of a lot of airtime. Hyperbole makes that easier, not to mention attracting viewers.

    150 sets of riot gear for the entire DHS is preparing for civil unrest. Alrighty then. Perhaps people should actually read the articles that are posted.
