What if we started booing politicans instead of applauding them all the time.

Has anyone else noticed how politicians are always applauding each other. When they walk into rooms or give speeches they are typically met with praise and adoration - from each other. In fact, they have gotten to where they take turns praising each other for "their wonderful service" when in fact they only have a 15% approval rating and have run this country into the ground.

Maybe it's time we try something different. Credit where credit is due but so is booing, criticism and outrage. With more diversified and honest responses, maybe they would quit believing their "own BS" about how great they are and come to better understand how we the people really feel!

I would love to see teams of RP people at all the public hearings expressing the outrage!

You’re certainly right!

They spend loads of our time and money just congratulating each other. I've written many articles and letters about that. It is definitely at the top of my list of pet peeves. Thank you for bringing it up on this forum.

Just run this jingle through your head once

Remember the "by Mennen" tagline at the end of Mennen TV commercials? Just add it to the end of whatever song is stuck in your head and it magically vanishes. Works like a charm every time!

I never see politicians

But I would boo the shit out of most if I did. It always gets me that nobody ever boos. Talk about being cowed.

We've all been brainwashed with money and media

That's why 95% of the varmits are returned to office, even if they've been exposed for being unfit. Most people are still under the impression that if they call their representative, they'll actually get to speak to them. Ha! First thing they do, is check your name on the "money donation" list. Maybe if you've donated $2500, you'll get a a call back, but other than that, you don't matter. They've created such a maze of beauracracies and departamental systems, that no one stands for any responsibility, therefore, no one to single out. This isn't by accident. The only thing we can do, is find some way to Unite the Discontent. Ron Paul did a pretty good job of getting this started, and this website does a good job of keeping his supporters united, but we need to find new leadership. If Obama can come out of nowhere, with somewhat of a tainted past, surely we can find someone to fill Ron Paul's shoes, with his blessings.

You're free to boo them if you like

from your little caged "free speech zone".

Many of those audiences are pre-screened.

A response from the future to booing politicians

In times of crisis like we are in now, we must come together and support America. Barak is strong enough to do what GW was never able to do, which is to bring us together like never before! *Only our enemies will try and tear this unprecedented unity apart* It is up to you to be vigilant against our enemies whether foreign and domestic.

Please contact Change.gov to report any illegal activities OR sign up to "be the change you'd like to see" with our new Food for Work Program! (you will need a *proper and current* Real ID, and tax form F66 for this program)

And remember that We Are One, for freedom, for liberty, for a new day. Welcome to the new Amerika!

"Whether you listen to the left side of congress' mouth or the rightside, either way it's the same mouth"

I bomb this spam with a virtual rotten tomato

and a chorus of e-boos!

huh?

"Barak is strong enough to do what GW was never able to do, which is to bring us together like never before! *Only our enemies will try and tear this unprecedented unity apart*"

You've been on this site for over a year. I'm really flabbergasted to hear you say this. Don't be one of the spiral-eyed sheeple who are fooled by Obama's rhetoric.

it's

satire

"(you will need a *proper and current* Real ID, and tax form F66 for this program)"

Yes it is Satire...if by satire you mean I love Obamma!

i think thats sarcasm..i dont know anymore, its late.

Booing the psychopaths

Will only be effective if you can aggravate them enough to make them more likely to take it out on everyone thru legislation. Maybe then, people will wake the hell up.

Nahhh! ameriKan idol is on!

I agree

And I think we should start calling them to their faces if possible what they are: enemies of the Constitution. Sociopaths, pathetically stupid, painfully ignorant, socialists, Marxists, etc., etc. Whatever "shoe" fits! I agree with the other poster here (sorry--can't remember who said it!) that the point is to throw these sociopaths off their game--by calling them what they are!

Booing is a good start.

I have changed my approach recently. I have decided to ignore 99% of the politicians: no contact, no surveys, no donations, no opinions, no votes, and no-show at public appearances.

They are laughing at us behind our backs and we are paying their salaries. I refuse to acknowledge their presence or to grace them with mine (like a jilted lover). I have exhausted all possible forms of reasonable communication and to no avail. I plan to totally ignore them and put 100% of my energy toward a specific PRO-Active battle plan for our cause.

What if they came and no one showed up? They feed off from our presence and it makes them feel powerful and respected. They should be feeling shame and remorse. Most of them thrive on attention and recogniton whether it is negative or positive. The expression "Humble public servant" is not in their volcabulary. It has been replaced with the actions and lifestyles of royalty. The arrogance sickens me. I refuse to participate in their evil game.

Either they are for us or against us; and just like a spouse we are not going to change them. I want to put my energy toward the positive part of our movement as we quietly gain strength.

Filling out polls, sending letters, faxing, and making phone calls is like telling the enemy our weaknesses and our needs. They turn around and use that info to manipulate us.

Not knowing what we are thinking and what we are doing gives us an edge and a lot more power. We could call it operation SILENT TREATMENT, operation JILTED LOVER or operation SILENCE IS GOLDEN.

PS: This idea was given to me when I viewed a video posted on the DP shortly after the elections. If anyone remembers it please let me know, I would like to view it again.

operation Ignore-ance Is Bliss

You do get the irony of discussing using the silent treatment don't you?
: )
It is a 180 degree turn from my approach of Operation Full Disclosure or Steal This Message. I still don't have a problem with anyone co-opting the message of freedom, sound money, etc.. If you do and you're lying, it will quickly become obvious to all that the Emperor has no clothes.

Sorry, double post

could not delete entire post. See above post. Booing...

major media replaces boos with applause

Hilliary Clinton gave a speech right after 9/11, had so much booing in the video, they altered the sound video.

Ahh Yes but you are

Ahh Yes but you are forgetting what this does to their egos. These sociopaths crave attention and the more booing there is the more they will make mistakes publically

Quick.....someone trademark

Quick.....someone trademark new line of shoes "boo" !

i'm down with that!

i made both of my senators from tennessee a promise that i would carry a poster that said...(bought and paid for) senator alexander, or corker voted FOR wall street and AGAINST main street on the bailout bill the very next time they came to my neck of the woods and, by god, i intend to do just that!

a little booing, for good measure, will make a great sound effect...i hope to post a video here...please join me

tomato throwing

is probably now an act of terrorism..

booing i'm all for (as well as shoe and tomato throwing). nothing like a politician's ego put to test. most crumble under that duress....speeches go out the window, they get angry and make mistakes, etc....

i've said this in other posts...we must SHAME them at any opportunity....any word on those who spray painted senators' cars after the bailout? that was beautiful.

I think we should

start throwing shoes. Go to goodwill and load a box full and when you go through the metal detectors and they ask why all the shoes say "I'm sending a message to my Congressman" LOL
