The 2008 RNC will be held in the midst of one of the most outspoken liberal communities of the entire nation. The inner-city of the twin-cities of
Minneapolis and St. Paul is a stronghold of free-thinking Democrat Liberals. It will be a very exciting time to be in Minneapolis. I have a feeling
that if our nation isn’t already in revolution by then, there will be the fiercest protests since the 60's and 70's.
I am sure the RNC and local Republicans have already begun to prepare for the onslaught; already infiltrating peaceful and just organizations simply
because they conflict with the Republican/Corporate/NWO ideology.
Want to see how much support Democrats have in the Twin-Cities? Look at the recent election of our US Representative to congress Keith Ellison. He
won the election against the Republican candidate by a 3 to 1 margin.
My problem with this is that Police or Military or whoever should never be allowed to, preemptively or otherwise, counter act the free speech rights
of its citizens. If people are angry enough to protest and issue, then the people who have cause the discontent would be forced by the protest to
discuss the issues and change instead of using force to block protest. I do not promote violent protest. I also do not promote the use of police or
military to control or limit the effect of a peaceful protest. As long as the protest is peaceful it should have free reign to disrupt the convention
or any event seen as a symbol worth protesting.
If they want to use police to control a protest and keep it from accomplishing the goals of the protest, then I fully advocate violence. If military
or police are used to limit the effectiveness of a protest, then the protesters have the right (IMO) to react with force, if necessary, to this
