The idea is to echo a will of the people in mass. Not the will of a few.
This is the entire point.
This is only accounted for in the President's Oval Office.
The real subversion is through the lobbyists who speak on behalf of our elected representatives.
No, the echoed voice of the silent majority, by its very EXISTENCE, excludes the voice of the minority elite.
Don't try to confuse the terms. You are dealing with someone who knows the game.

Welcome to my ignore list buddy.
This is not about partisan politics this is about the government moving at beak neck speed taking away our rights and freedom. It is both the left and the right. We are currently being tag-teamed by them, one side gets voted in and they do their damage, the other side gets voted in and they do their damage.
The worst thing about it is that nobody that plays partisan politics understands that you are NOT getting what you think you are getting.You are getting an over bearing government that wants to control every aspect of your life. And you're being led like sheep to the slaughter.
I have no time to deal with people that are going to continue to play partisan politics. I will not listen to a view point that tells me to "deal with it we won". Not going to happen. You have your right to free speech but that doesn't mean I have to read it. This is supposed to be a Constitutional Republic which means I don't have to be subjected to be ruled by 51% of the people. That is why the Constitution gives the fed limited power and the states more power than them as long as it doesn't overstep the bounds of the Constitution, and further more there was already one war fought over states rights.
I'll add this again in case anybody missed it. How is it Okay for the government to not care about death threats to employee's of a company that we 80% own and to further demonize the executives of companies and play upon that and incite people to the point of possible violence, but when a representative is telling us it is time to stand up, people get all crazy and say that isn't right, and call her all kinds of names.
They're all hypocrites.

Keep an eye on these G20 summit protests.
This is what I refer to. In London we had hundreds of thousands of protestors with peacable ambitions.
It appears to be spiraling out of control because the scumbags in charge over there have decided to taunt the protestors rather than listen to them.
Now watch closely as all hell breaks loose.
That day is coming for America, also. Things like this bring change.

To Jay, and the others, who believe that peaceful protest will solve anything, allow me to illuminate to you how much of a joke this is;
They'll let you protest and gather in your chosen place (Which is not the steps of the whitehouse, and which is not disrupting anything.... because you've been trained not to DISRUPT things).
They'll patiently let you assemble, with your signs and your screams and your "USA! USA! USA!" nonsense. And quietly, they will laugh to themselves, and discuss how stupid all you protesters are. Why? Because all that they will do is wait. They will wait, then send some police forces out to gas you and "Disperse you non-violently" using tear gas and other tools at their disposal. They already have, and they will again.
And if they don't? They'll wait for the protest to fall apart. "I've got to get home to my kids, I can't afford to pay the babysitter."
"We've really made a difference, but I'm out of vacation time for work and they'll fire me if I don't get back, and with the economy how it is, I can't afford to get fired".
"I've spent enough time here, I've got classes I should be studying for."
They'll wait for the rabble to break apart because nothing unifies them and they have no interest beyond having their meager little, meaningless voices heard to those in power. Oh, they hear you. THEY HEAR YOU AND THEY LAUGH.
Because they know you are all a bunch of cowards. They know you are such godawful cowards that when they tell you not to send teabags in the mail "For National Security Purposes", you all roll over and do it, because GOD FORBID you do something ILLEGAL and get ARRESTED.
Cowards. Braver men fought and died for this country, braver men willingly laid out out on the killing fields choking, gasping and clutching at wounds in their gut as they endured misery before their eyes went cold. Braver men whose names you will never know, because they are the nameless dead.
They were willing to die rather than live in a society where their lives were dictated any longer. They saw the promise of the new lands stretched out before them; the promise of freedom, of individuality. Of personal sovereignty coming before country.
The real truth is that most of you here are not for armed revolt, even as an option... because you are cowards and don't want to be the first to die. You don't want you and yours to suffer, so you'll wait for EVERYBODY ELSE to make your decisions for you.... just as the brainwashed, self-defeating human beings that you are.
And those who can, those who CAN muster the courage to take their own destiny in their own hands, come death or freedom.... I only wish that you are the kind of person who would look at a convicted killer, or a transvestite, or a gay person or a liberal or a democract as brethren and clasp their hands should you meet them out there, on the killing fields.
Until there is action. Until someone actually does something, you will all remain cowards to the last.
I am not normally so venomous in my commentary, or outright hostile. I apologize, but I see no hope in this country anymore. I see no promise. I only see side-taking, selfish indifference and carefully cultivated hatreds breeding amok. There are so few people who have any sort of enlightened point of view that their essential existence is worthless.
My parents, after that meeting I mentioned in my prior post, asked me why if I was so wise didn't I decide to teach all the people. My response is thousands of years old, yet still holds true to this day.
"The teacher does not seek the students."
