Unfortunately this is what a democracy looks like as it is collapsing on itself. Once we get to the point where we cant continue to pay for majority rule we start seeing people fighting each other for the remaining scraps.

Our founders warned us over and over that a democracy (majority rule) is not the answer, this is why you won't find Democracy in any founding documents.

Democracy will keep devolving to more and more battles, fights, yelling riots and mob rule. Very sad for all.

Democracy, indeed. Who are these people here now anyway and what are they going to do when their little hissyfit party is over and they have to wake up and spend another boring day in mom & dad's basement apartment? Haven't the actual teachers all been ordered back to work? What are these? Socialist Understudies? Walker needs to fly in Bono to put on a free concert across town and that should take care of these idiots.

I am not giving the right a pass though, unfortunatly they have bought into the team battle mentality.

We need radical solutions, not left/right take and take.

I don't have a picture, but ours is a tyranny of a slight majority. Which ever idiot majority group rams a vote through, the law sticks it to us.

Not everyone should have the right to vote just because they came out of a womb 18 years ago.

Not everyone should be able to hold political office because they came from a womb, are rich, lawyered up, or reach an age requirement.

Not everyone should be a mother just because they have a vagina (same with fathers but a little different).

We should have rights that no group, no majority, no government, no law enforcement, etc, can annul.

We do, it is the constitution and bill of rights, unfortunately it has been eroded over the years. Plus people have been convinced that we are a democracy.

I want a more detailed list of rights, not this general crap that each sway of majority ideological power seems to have a desire to interpret; interpret toward their own lust for power and control, while the sheep wait in hope. The problem with this document that is like the bible, worshiped but ignored, but unlike the bible, all too brief and general, and therefore easily made to appear vague (and I would bet that that document is actually not for us commoners as we assume, but is actually to protect the government by giving it vast interpretive powers as we have experienced), is that it was founded by men who thought that all men were somehow endowed with reason, so much for enlightenment certainty and the notion that the founding fathers were some how great minds, if they actually believed this. Any nit wit knows people are power hungry megalomaniacs; from the rabble on up to the best cultured. Give the rabble equality and you will get a rabble government, or one like ours that has learned to manipulate the rabble and use them. I would like a long detailed list so I could carry it with me and not need a lawyer or politician to carry it for me.

That vid illustrates perfectly that our country is full of imbeciles that would make old Swingblade look like a professor. That is not what democracy looks like and it is not even close. They should have been chanting this is what freedom looks like and they would have been right. They were exercising there rights for a peaceful assembly and freedom of speech. And democracy does not guarantee either of those rights. I would hope our good friends on the left are embarrassed by these buffoons I know I am.

They act and sound like they are at a pep rally in high school or a high school football game.
