Consider the following scenario: At the time your college age child is attending the big homecoming football game, you hear on the news that event security have apprehended one of the visiting school's fans after learning of a plot to disrupt homecoming activities. The person in question was caught red handed trying to sabotage the bleacher's of the hometeam, which could have possibly collapsed resulting in injury or even death to hundreds of fans.
As a free citizen in a democratic republic, what combination of factors would make you so fired up that you would actively seek out your local congressman and shout at him until he will listen to your two cents on an issue? Recently there has been a wave of American anger boiling over at town hall meetings regarding healthcare. In a previous post, I questioned what the news media would cover during the August recess of Congress. I posited that Americans would begin to demand more answers from those in power regarding their lack of progress on international issues. I was right about the renewed call to politicians for more accountability, but wrong about the agenda that would be called into question. It seems a sizable portion of our citizens are most concerned about, indeed fearful of, the Democrats' healthcare initiatives and are voicing their concern to elected officials while they are making their August visits to their home constituencies.
