    Stupid question?

    What exactly are the protesters trying to accomplish in NYC next week? What are they "protesting" and why do they think their "civil disobedience" is going to mean anything? I don't get it.........

    If you're protesting the war, then it's an anti-war protest. But what is an anti republican protest? :dunno:

    So the idea is to protest that the GOP is nominating Bush? I guess they want another candidate?

    I think some protestors will protest anything and anyone. Kerry,Bush..it doesn't matter. I did see a story on Fox and read some on the net about a group of violent protestors called the "weathermen". They caused a lot of turmoil years ago and Fox says a lot of them are getting out of jail about now and the group may be or is planning on protesting the Republican Convention. They have been known to blow things up. This tells a little more about them.

    Perhaps many see the republicans as the war party?

    Perhaps because many people do not like the war and see bush as the biggest supporter of the war? You do not have to agree with the protestors to understand their reasoning. it is pretty simple to follow.

    I would love to see a different candidate than Bush coming out of the GOP. I am sure I am not alone. Many republicans are very disappointed with Bush and his liberal policies.

    You just need to understand liberals better. They are not rational thinking people. They are emotion-based, not rational thinking-based.

    The more disturbance they make, the more the liberal media will focus on them instead of the convention. It's all about them anyway, you gotta realize.

    They are like children who cover their ears and scream because they don't want to hear something.

    The liberals have never been into calm, measured debate unless they control the debate. When others have the podium and speak about ideas other than their own, they start to scream foul. They are so self-centered that they cannot fathom another person having another opinion different than theirs. That is heresy to them. (And their leaders know better than to allow truth to be broadcasted unhampered)

    Bush-hating is just a way for them to focus their various hatreds into one big howl. Bush represents the American way. Liberals hate that.

    Convention-bashing is just another form of suppressing free speech. Our free speech, not theirs, of course. Heaven forbid that the Republicans should be in the spotlight all by themselves presenting their ideas to the nation. Mustn't have that.

    You must remember free speech only applies to muckraking moonbats screaming in the streets or revolting reporters spewing rhetoric in the media. Any opposition to THEIR ideology must be thoroughly squelched. Truth has no say and opposing views have no say - if they can help it. This is how totalitarians (and self-centered children) operate. Heaven forbid that they should ever listen quietly or discuss rationally another viewpoint.
