    It is not merely politics at play, there is a spiritual, new age aspect.

    Anyway here is the final paragraph of the article...

    This article seems to assume that all the representatives holding town meetings are "uber-liberals." They're not. Some are liberal and some are conservative. In effect the article says that both liberals and conservatives are using mind control techniques to gain consensus.

    I took the article to mean elitist, agenda representatives, no matter whether they claim to be conservative, liberal, republican, or democrat. They are all puppets who answer to their master.

    I think they're more than just emotionally needy bullies. I think they're despots.

    The people who are holding these town meetings are our representatives in Congress. I'm simply saying that some are Democratic and some are Republican. People who say we can't trust anyone in Congress are basically saying that they don't support our form of government because if we "throw the bums out" how can we be certain we won't simply elect a new group of bums.

    Therefore, to make this claim is to say you don't support the American form of government. The Declaration of Independence says we have the right to overthrow an unjust government. What form of government do you propose?
