That's not the american way

"violence and threats are unacceptable." He added, "that's not the American way, we need to take that anger and channel it into positive change."

Funny, about this part. Whenever american people mention "The american way", they mean that the american way of doing things is democratically, peacefully and intelligently. John Boehner, however, is an idiot who forgets that "The american way" was completely ignored during the process of refoming health care. People's protests went ignored, and the lawmakers just added layer over layer of benefits to insurance companies and harm to the general population. What is, then, the american way of dealing with things once the american way gets ignored? (talk)09:29, 25 March 2010

If everybody is allowed to resort to violence when they feel things haven't been done peacefully, democratically or intelligently, then society breaks down. The alternative to the so-called "American" way is nicely showcased in Iraq, where people resort to violence to solve their disputes. It's called rule of law and democracy. If the people are really so upset about these healthcare reforms, they will vote in a government which will repeal the healthcare reforms. (talk)15:20, 25 March 2010

I don't think that 153 was saying that violence is the American way. He probably meant that using special exemptions and bribes to pass a bill which less than half of the population supported is not especially democratic. (talk)15:25, 25 March 2010

It's around 50/50 support for the bill in the public's eyes. as for threats let's just say if you listen to hatemongers like Rushie and Beck all day it's no surpise that they solve their anger issues with violence. (talk)20:25, 25 March 2010

Just because there were people protesting healthcare reform doesn't mean every American ever doesn't want healthcare reform. That's like saying that because Hitler is evil every German is evil. (talk)03:03, 26 March 2010
