This made me sick.....
There are two bull fights going on in this video. The Evil Manipulators pose the civilians as a red cape to the cops. The Evil Manipulators also pose the cops as another red cape to the demonstrators. Both sides are being deliberately manipulated by the Evil Manipulators to charge the bogus cape and leave the Control Freak Matadors free to continue their nefarious scheming and manipulating all the while basking in luxury and laughing their fat a$$e$ off at how easily they fool and con the people to charge the wizard's capes fighting themselves for their pitiful few bogus FED note paychecks.
When both foolish sides look/wake up enough to see the Evil Matador holding the capes the fight will change and the real perpetrators will be rounded up. Then we can all go home and be at peace.
Wow, what a scam and so easy to control....
PS: I used to wonder (but no more) why Boosh et al always appear to be laughing and having so much fun. If you were a bully accustomed to stealing everyone else's lunch money you would be laughing your a$$ off too.
Its about bad policy.
They may not support some of the other groups that have jumped on the RP train. Some of those folks may be here, posting. We Paul supporters have a great relationship with the military and police. That is OUR history. Ron Paul has received endorsements and money from them. So, go post your paranoia somewhere else. This forum is for Ron Paul and his supporters. Many supporters are police officers and military. Lets not let others hijack our movement.
...is to call me yet another name and provide no example or logical argument for your position.
That is a problem, Dave. Why don't you face it head on instead of hiding from it? I've asked you several times now to cite even a single act of violence by any of the protesters shown in the police video. You haven't. You simply post a reply to the thread calling me and presumably the rest of those who feel the way I do another name. Should I respond like the officers you're defending and pepper spray you or whack you with a baton? If I understand your logic so far, you've called me names, so I have the right to respond with force, correct? How can you not see what was done by those officers as a serious offense and yet claim to love freedom & liberty? I simply don't get it.
So, for every time you tell us we ought to just keep quiet and respect the 'authorities', I will stand up and tell you and your audience that the authorities are there to protect our individual rights, not deny them to us. That is OUR message Dave, that our government's purpose is to serve and protect OUR rights...not the other way around. Maybe if you were one of us, you'd understand that.
How can you, as a former soldier, endorse the behavior of even so much as a single person that denies the Constitutionally protected rights of another? I urge you to carefully reconsider the oath you swore. Here's the text, in case you forgot it...
I DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR (OR AFFIRM) THAT I WILL SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AGAINST ALL ENEMIES, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC; THAT I WILL BEAR TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THE SAME; AND THAT I WILL OBEY THE ORDERS OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE ORDERS OF THE OFFICERS APPOINTED OVER ME, ACCORDING TO REGULATIONS AND THE UNIFORM CODE OF MILITARY JUSTICE. SO HELP ME GOD.
Once again, I invite you to discuss your position with me.
DaveMac, If Jesus had been leading the protesters the cops would have sprayed him with peppers gas too. Wake up man!

I think there is a problem with what you just said. Your job is to serve and protect. Who do you serve and protect? The public. The very people who pay your wage (unlike someone else stated on down the post). Law inforcement should only kick in if someone has commited a crime. This is the breach of trust that is happening in this country. The general public is innocent until proven guilty.
serve, attend to, wait on, attend, assist, help, assist, aid

When you take pictures and dress in riot gear when the public is gathering. It is you who are prematurely sounding the alarm (This is the action that should show movement from serving and protecting to enforcment). The only reason riot gear should be put on is if a riot is imminent. It is clear there was no bottle thrown in this clip. It is clear these policemen wanted to show their force and their ability to do bodely harm from the minute they walked out in this garb. If yo notice I don't refer to them as officers. They are policemen nothing more nothing less. They can refer to each others titles when there in there offices and talking on the radio If they are all of this rank then the rank is nothing more than to build them up to think the're military. They are not to be anything like the military. Military should not even be aloud lose on public streets (in mass or in formation) while on active duty. It is against the law, at least it always has been. Who knows now they have probably taken that law away from us too. Military should not be able to even join the police force. The training for these two jobs should never even look alike. The military is trained to take life. The police should be trained to save life. Anyone who says they require the same training to do these two polar opposite jobs should be checked out for mental defect. People say but the protect us we should show them respect. Really I work everyday building the houses you people live in I work up to 5 stories in the air anything over a 3 story fall is usually fatal. You say yeah but these guys have people shooting at them. I have high pressure nail guns shooting at me all day one guy misses and bang nail sticking in you I've been shot 6 times one almost left me crippled ( a shot to the knee) Get shot in the head and boom its over. Do I want any praise for this no I get a pay check Thats what I work for. Plus I love the job. Policmen are just doing there job I don't feel indebted to them at all. Its the job they chose to do. I'm a carpenterman your a policeman. Your not my authority you are to obey the authority Its called: the Constitution! And it says you are supose to protect my rights. My life! My liberty! My pusuit of happiness! You are to protect me from the criminal be he rich or be he poor. Its your job. Where I live the policemen are awsome. They don't do all the things I see happening in other cities around the country. If they did I would have no respect for them at all. I am proud of the Springfield Missouri Police force May they never tread on me.
...do not help candidates get elected. Even though we know Bush's policies are not truly republican in nature and we oppose them, you won't educate the mainstream by protesting without education. It is best to educate people about the problems, then let them draw their own conclusions about who is exacerbating it. Recently I explained to some huckabee supporters about the CFR and asked them why as religious people they would support such a thing? I left them thinking. I did not attack huckabee or call him names. Provoke thoughts, not people.

This video is important because it shows us how close to the edge we are. How often do you hear people say "At least I'm free to disagree". If you say that you aren't, they don't take you seriously. This video is a eye opener for people who don't worry about the growing police state.
I watched this video and was shocked. I'm now thinking that this isn't that much further than the Chinese cracking down on the Buddhist monks or even the young guy standing in front of the Chinese tank in Tiananmen Square.
You combine this video with the ones I've seen of the FEMA camps that have been built and you really begin to get nervous.
This is a wake up call. It will provoke me to look more deeply into this issue and motivate me to talk to others about this.

Granted, I posted this elsewhere in the forum, it seemed to fit there, it seems to fit here also:
And I know some of you out there will argue that this has nothing to do with getting RON PAUL elected, to which I say it does, I say it SHOWS what we want to change in our once wonderful country -- none of us should accept this treatment or feel it is justified. Not all police action is excessive BUT this sure seems it and it also seems unwarranted.
And this happened at a time that police tazer action seems to have picked up in this land of ours, some have resulted in deaths.
And I know some of you out there in forumland will argue that the guy deserved it BUT to you I say this guy was just asking Senator JOHN KERRY a set of questions, questions that Senator JOHN KERRY chose not to answer, for all the obvious reasons. The guy getting tazed may very well be a loud-mouth jerk but he should be entitled to be one. Police State mentality is not for this country of ours, it belongs locked in time in Nazi Germany -- not here in our wonderful country.
Vote RON PAUL 2008
To call "troll?"
Big posters on this are really new.. and I don't see how this helps Dr Ron Paul... Not a lot of mention of Dr Paul or his views on this. MLK, Ghandi, Rosa Parks... all heros of Dr Paul. What do you think they went through and what was their response? Who are we supporting anyway?
wants are unlimited, means are scarce...
....where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is LIBERTY. 2 Corinthians 3:17(b)
***wants are unlimited, means are scarce...***
Yes, they should all be required to read the TOS first...
The taser video has gotten us more ridicule from those who have connected that guy with RP... than anything. I can't see any value in posting it here. If you agree, flag it.
Most people are simply very upset...
Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

the supporters who think it evolved to generalize and expect the police to stand by hour after hour as punks wearing masks flip them off and call them pigs. These same assholes tear up towns after college football games, etc. Yet, we want our police to be good little boys and girls. BS. This movement had better realize OUR behavior during protest will play a huge role. That is REALITY. The aggressive behavior displayed in the video was not productive. It accomplished NOTHING. I don't think Jesus ever flipped off the Romans. There is a really good reason for that. It serves no purpose and undermines everything we stand for. We need our law enforcement.
These protesters are there to commence their first amendment right to protest the WAR. How Dare you sir!
"Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly." Mae West
"This used to be a government of checks and balances. Now it's all checks and no balances." (Gracie Allen for President 1940)
If acting childishly (here: calling cops "pigs" and using obscene gestures and language for the sake of obscenity) turns off the vast majority of citizens (it does) then the protest does not accomplish its goals.
The reason to protest is to try to convert people to a worldview; to make them aware of what's going on and tell them to "PAY ATTENTION." Doing so in an incredibly juvenile manner doesn't work. Period.
Flipping people off and behaving childishly just shows that many of THESE protesters (not all protesters, just these specific ones) were doing it as a masturbatory exercise with no actual desire to cause change. It's fun to say "fuck the police" and flip people off. There's an adrenaline rush. But it's also entirely masturbatory--it accomplishes nothing.
It's a lot harder to actually do what it takes to cause change.
What about that older woman? How many of those people do you think were "Punks?" What about the mothers of sons that are dying in Iraq? Did you watch the whole thing? If they were true "Punks" they wouldn't be protesting because they wouldn't care about politics. These were all people exercising their right to free speech. As much as you might like them to be monsters, most of them were probably normal people like your own family. They're just pissed off enough to get off of the computer and tell people about it.
It's about Dr. Paul because it's about us losing our rights and giving up our liberties for "freedom" out of fear.
'Once you become knowledgeable you have an obligation to do something about it!' — Ron Paul
The Lord's main adversarys while He was here, in the flesh, was the 'RELIGIOUS" leaders. However, take a look at where the Lord is asked whether it is proper to pay taxes, and how He responds.
Ceasar at that time was considered god. When The Lord Jesus Christ, said "...render unto Ceasar what is Ceasar's and unto God what is God's". In this statement he reduces Ceasar from a god to nothing more than a human steward. By simply stating that Ceasar was NOT God.
Keep in mind, Jesus was considered quite subversive to the establishment back then. And Biblical Christianity is even NOW considered subversive to the world's religions. It is quite liberating. Do you know the Lord DaveMac?
Wrongly assuming these protestors are the same ones at college sports games is mendacity and bad logic. These protestors are against an unjust war, which anyone who has suffered through Bush's many lies about the war can appreciate (where are those WMD's anyway?)
Jesus did flip off the romans and the jews, didn't you read your bible either? He tore through the temple and threw out the merchants.
So, a reading list for you is..The constitution, The Bill of rights, The Bible. Please bring coherent thoughts with you next time.
Can you clarify...
You people can't even admit the behavior of the protesters played a role in the escalation of violence. Their behavior makes a difference. Do you think that made it pretty hard for good officers to disobey orders? They have a right to act like fools, true. Did it help the situation? What did they accomplish that day? Anything? Yep, the cops were wrong and they were helped by the immature Americans who felt it necessary to focus their rage on them. That was stupid and the result was predictable. So, let’s try not to emulate the emo kids in masks. Let’s make sure we have a clear positive message. One that does not involve calling the police pigs or flipping them off. That is the neocon’s dream.
A) Voicing your opinion about an illegal war
B) Staying home and watching the media filter things you'll never see
C) Beating the people opposed to an illegal war
I'm not sure, but if I was a betting man I'm guessing it wouldn't be (A). Emo kids in masks, really? How about patriots, how about people who give a damn that our country has deevolved to starting wars rather then stopping wars?
What they accomplished is now people across the nation can see what a police state this country has become. I dare you to protest if the government ever treats you harshly. I've seen it happen and the little person always has an uphill battle. By the way, thats why we're in this so if Dr. Paul doesn't get the nomination we can lock hands again and take back our country.
It's very mature to recognize a problem in the world and to try to fix it.
It's immature and counter-productive to do so by flipping people off and using foul language.
The entire POINT of a protest is to convince people that you're right. Protesting like a child throwing a tantrum will never accomplish that.
...isn't reason to react in protest with your VOICE at a minimum, I doubt your commitment to the cause of freedom and protecting those rights.
Calling us who see the injustice on the video fringe wackos does nothing to help support your argument or position, and simply illustrates your lack of reason and logic on this subject as far as I'm concerned.
And somehow, despite my view of your opinion, I'll still kick a$$ for your right to have it and voice it.
As for disobeying an UNLAWFUL order, that should be a no brainer for any patriotic American, in uniform or not.
MLK, Ghandi, Rosa Parks... all heros of Dr Paul. What do you think they went through and what was their response? Who are we supporting anyway?
Just added you to my "cute" list
So that you couldn't up-close film their face. I did see where the protesters were prevented from filming the police officers face up close. Why is that? What are YOU afraid of?
But that, I believe is Sapphira's point. That when the GOOD Police get an order that is obviously wrong and corrupt, they should stand up and NOT follow it. The BRAVE mIlitary men in Iraq are now exercising that right on a regular basis, from what I am hearing from my military friends.
We need a lot more of that!
Please read my posts below. Looks like we have one person-davemac-who is a police officer defending other police officers. We are all trying to make him understand that orders do not have to be followed if they are unconstitutional.
That is all well and good for us that aren't police officers; However police officers need to decide whether a paycheck or standing up for Americans rights is more important. Not an easy decision with a mortgage, family etc.. But in the beginning the Brave man is alone and only after he has trimuphed will lesser men rally to his side.
It's time to stop acting like victims. You want cops to be nice, tell your fellow supporters not to call them pigs, flip them off or blame them for all the ills in the world and remind them many support Dr. Paul. Time to grow up kids.
