When elected representatives so willfully choose to ignore the voice of the people, no matter what the policy is or where they fall on the ideological spectrum, the people will unite and demand to be heard.

via What really drove Colorado recall vote — hint: it wasn’t ‘voter suppression’ | Fox News.

Got this via the Michael Blane blog. A darn good analysis and a warning to both parties.

And I just saw this video courtesy of Tom Gresham:

“My Towhall, that I have, that I am in control of..”

  1. They need to kick her to the curb as well, TownHalls are exactly as that guy said, for the Town to discuss what they want to discuss nothing more nothing less, it’s just the way for them to say they had one, but yet control what is said and discussed. it becomes a speech/meeting at that point and no input from the town. Re-donk-e-lus…

  2. This is basically what I’ve been saying from the beginning, ever since the recalls were kicked off, and especially since they were successful. The media and anti-freedom types want to make it about the “gun lobby,” but it’s not. It’s not about Democrats or Republicans, and it’s not even really about the Second Amendment or gun rights at all.

    At its core, it’s about being ignored by your “representatives,” being shut out of an “open” and “public” debate/discussion, and being ridiculed and demeaned by people who think themselves your betters. It’s about “public servants” forgetting who answers to whom, and being summarily reminded – in no uncertain terms.

  3. The Author of the article left out sheer arrogance, as shown on this video. Well, it’s not her Town Hall meeting any more

  4. I would like to point out a very key difference between Democrats and Republicans.

    Here we have a single Democrat, surrounded by a large group of VERY angry Republicans. She is a bit flustered, perhaps a bit intimidated, but as you can see, she never feels(or is) threatened to the degree that she needs to call on security to interpose themselves between herself and the crowd.

    If the roles had been reversed, and it was a Republican surrounded by a large group of angry Democrats, she would have been mobbed and beaten to death.
