4. Bad Precedent

I don't much like this idea of protesting at elected official's homes. I am not a fan of kicking people out of restaurants because you don't like them or their policies. I don't think that people should be harassed at gas stations. If we are going to disagree, which we are, then protest should be done in a way that does not violate people's private lives. I don't like these people at all myself, whether it is Huckabee Sanders, McConnell, or whomever.

The litmus test for protests should be: what if right-wingers did the same thing? I think that it would be wrong and dangerous for Tea Party types or other Right Wingers to go to the homes of Democrats and Progressives to protest or harass them. It is a potentially dangerous situation. Protests should be done in appropriate venues.

If they (right-wingers) should not do it, then we should not do it. Protest at the Capitol, protest in front of the White House, March, go to State Legislatures, but leave people alone in their private lives of living, eating, getting gas. If we would not want this treatment for our own people, we should not do it to others, no matter how detestable we find these people. We need to be better than that.

8. great idea

we'll tell them to set up "free speech zones" and if they are 12 miles away from where one of OUR ELECTED REPRESENTATIVE LIVES, we cam excersize our First Amendment rights there, well hell, we won. and they didn't have to hear the riff raff. win win eh?

Yes I am being sarcastic.

Being a representative of the people is not an 8 hour a day, 116 day a year proposition. Hell, they get enough campaign funds that they should welcome our resistance.

7. Protesting

I don't think that protesting at someone's house is a good idea. It has nothing to do with being meek. We can oppose these people aggressively without doing things the wrong way. I am not above fighting dirty, even. I would just say that harassment is not protesting. It is a bad idea. If we harass them, they will harass us. I think it could turn into a vicious circle. It could get volatile and people could get hurt. Just my two cents.

9. my two cents.

were spent when the tea party felt the need to have a 2nd amendment rally across the Potomac from the White House when President Obama lived there.
