Stupid question. It is not unpatriotic to speak out. It might be disruptive and it might get a bad response from the crowd if it is too obnoxious. Speaking out can be done with decorum or without. To speak out, I guess he means to speak against the majority. So it can surely be done by either side. It says a town hall meeting. It does not say a meeting to promote health care. Town hall meetings are by nature suppose to be discussion and debate oriented. If there is absolutely no podium for opposition, then the only thing to do is cause a raucous and an American had better do it, no matter which side he is on. Town Hall meetings are an EXCHANGE of ideas and there needs to be plenty of open air so that people are not forced to cause a problem to be heard.

is run by the industrial complex and a huge source of misinformation of propaganda. I'm not surprised at all.

Great Job guys.

What's the answer?

Patriotism suggests you advocate Nationalism. I do not, I advocate freedom for all.

The question only asks if

The question only asks if disruptive persons speaking out in a town hall forum are acting in an "unpatriotic" fashion. By answering no, you are not necessarily implying that the action is patriotic, or that it is anything else.

I think it does the most good to make the point that it is not unpatriotic to dissent.

I'm shocked that this

I'm shocked that this question is even asked.

Much like the MIAC "apologies" seemed to really be...

...more of a platform for the authorities to plant negative seeds in the mind of people about militia, I suspect the point of this "poll" was most likely to subliminally get people to think of those speaking out against unconstitutional crap as "disruptive" and "unpatriotic".

The wording of this question was surely no accident.

They could've asked, "Are those who push unconstitutional bills acting unpatriotically?"

But instead, they turned it around to put the negative attention on the people speaking out against unconstitutional agendas.

We are waaaaaay ahead

speaking out at town hall meetings

It's every American's right to dissent guaranteed by the 1st. amendment. To redress the issues of our government and its civil servants is to let them know we have a voice, and when those issues are contrary to the principals of the Constitution, we the people, will rise and demand, " real ' change. Our present administration and many members of Congress are not representing and implementing the founding principals of this nation, but rather the hegemony of " social fasism " Political dissent is necessary when the nation is at perial and the determination of the people to change it are guaranteed in the Constitution. As Patrick Henry stated, " give me liberty or give me death ".

The question itself is sneaky because it asks that ...

you first negatively identify the people who are upset as people who are being disruptuve on purpose because they aren't going along with the alleged program that the town hall organizers want to promote. That is unfair. Patriots have a right and a duty to speak out no matter what the town hall folks want to characterize it as.

How about this question: "Are town hall proponents who are in favor of Obama's health care bill treating people who oppose the Obama health care bill unpatriotically and disruptively when the opponents don't agree with the bill?

Did Frank set this poll up ?

If so in true Penn and Teller style..F*ck you Frank !
