I'm amazed that some people think that this is an issue with Democrats only.

We have people complaining that their representitives are not listening them (the representitives they never voted for and liked in the first place) and then when its their chance to have a say, they abuse it by shouting and disrupting the entire meeting. We are talking about adults here and it is down right embarresing. We had tea party protestors last year break into town hall meetings, disrupt any chance for a fair and mature discussion crying about 'death panels' and 'my medicare'. Seriously now. What did this do besides gain media attention? And people still insist on town hall meetings?

The memo, authored by Robert MacGuffie, who runs the website rightprinciples.com, suggests that tea partiers should "pack the hall... spread out" to make their numbers seem more significant, and to "rock-the-boat early in the Rep's presentation...to yell out and challenge the Rep's statements early.... to rattle him, get him off his prepared script and agenda...stand up and shout and sit right back down."

The days of civil and reasoned debate have come and gone in this country.
Both Democrats and Republicans have failed us over these years, but the bulk of the population including the tea party protesters have just as much to blame in my opinion. We allow ourselves to be controlled by astroturf campaigns, by actors who make money off feeding people emotional cr*p like Glenn Beck, Keith olbermann, by scare mongerers like Alex jones, we run around like idiots and then we complain about our representitives when we in part are pushing the nation to where it is by buying BS. Meanwhile we ignore the corporations that are making a killing at our expense.
