You are right.. when I started watching the stream it seemed like the threats were coming from both sides, but I was wrong. I take back my 'both sides' comment.

Its really interesting that there is so much discussion though about direct action. This element of the election somehow feels more representative/legit. Im not saying I agree/disagree with a more hands on approach - but it feels like the people are speaking, and they are being heard.

Are you calling a riot 'direct action'? You're saying rioting makes their representation more legit? That's crazy. That's like saying that a bully's opinion is more 'representative' just because he beats the crap out of someone.

Quite frankly, I'm shocked to see that so many Obama supporters would resort to it, suggest it, want to join in with it, etc.

The only thing that it is representative of is that apparently, a large segment of the population are animals with no morals, no integrity and anger management issues.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23794435


I use the term 'direct action' loosely, and I don't support violence.

But I do think its important to acknowledge that we are seeing that people are really starting to feel empowered enough to express their voices and their discontent, although the tactics may be misguided. Social media is giving a voice to people who now understand the strength in unifying with others who share similar goals and speaking out together.

And I think this interest helps hold media, representatives accountable.
 Quoting: Parabola


I remember that the Tea Partiers and NRA were able to 'unify' and 'express their discontent' in large groups with NO violence (or talk of violence) whatsoever.

There is no way you can sugar coat poop and make it smell nice. IMHO, there is nothing positive about a bunch of people threatening to riot just because they might disagree with possible outcomes. That's tantamount to a baby throwing a fit because they don't get to have their way.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23794435


Im not trying to sugar coat anything (violence=bad IMO), Im just stating that I think its really interesting to watch the momentum..ideas clearly have potential to spread far and wide. And I also think its interesting that people who might not normally be involved in politics are getting really passionate about it, are speaking out, and it will be heard. Thats new, and to me that's interesting, and worth following and discussing.

Both sides? I don't think so. Did you check the link?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 23794435


I twitter searched 'riot' a while ago and have been watching. Lots of threats from both sides - but I agree there seem to be more from the 'riot if Romney wins' camp.
 Quoting: Parabola


Check again with your reading glasses. I'm not seeing one Romney person saying they are going to riot if he doesn't win.

Re: 40+ Tweets Per Minute About Rioting
40+ people can't get off there asses to instigate nothing.

internet rhetoric = yawn

actions-louder-words.


& that doesn't even scratch the surface of why people hold such 'strong' beliefs?

what if you were born in the middle east? or in the 1600's? or a snail?

chill.

think.

don't be a product of your conditioning.

be a playing part of planet earth/the universe

we all are made up of the same atoms.

scoff at me if you like, but when you are dust and a distant memory in your loved ones minds, the same questions that have suffered every thinking man will remain. past/present/future

& is it worth getting bent out of shape for?
