Where do you draw the line

Where do you draw the line on "restricting the freedom of other people"? That kind of thinking is a dangerous, slippery slope...did the protesters at Tianamen Square restrict the freedom of those driving the tanks that ran them over? How about the protesters at Kent State? Did they block sidewalks on campus or something?

As far as I am concerned, what Legalizeliberty did was an act of civil disobedience, pure and simple. It isn't what I would do to protest, but courage takes many forms. It's the in-your-face kind of action that is going to get attention and eventually get results.

Whether or not you like it, we are on the road to revolution. And revolution ain't polite or pretty. Hell, I hope he DID have a Ron Paul t-shirt on...

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.
Thomas Jefferson

Malo periculosam libertatem quam quietam servitutem. ("I prefer the tumult of liberty to the quiet of servitude"). Thomas Jefferson to James Madison, 30 January 1787.
