Well, you can protest the fact that Obama voted
for the Patriot Act, FISA, Banker Bailouts and will not remove the military bases from the Middle East.
We can keep up the pressure on him to end the anti-
constitutional policies of Bush. However, no one
with a brain is holding their breath. Today, on nearly
every major campus, students are holding a protest
called, Real Change Requires Revolution. We will
be exposing the lies behind Obama's rhetoric.

This is exactly why America is going to turn into a slum. People acting like nothing but a bunch of animals that have no regard for anything but themselves. I'm embarassed by these people and American at this point.

Young Americans for Liberty? In the 1970s it was the Young Patroits. Regardless of your title you are still the same brainwashed, brat stomping punks who are constantly trying to shanghai true American liberty when it is Karl Marx you have in your heart.

If there are no protest then this is incontrovertible proof that the democrats and the media are and have been behind all protest and the protesters are nothing but paid dupes and the democrats are nothing but poor winners.

I'm sure they will find something to cry about. If they can't protest they might actually have to work and we know they don't want that.

Hugely popular? 53% is a simple majority and that's if you don't think the election was rigged.- but because most of his followers don't work and are thinking of the free handouts - it's no big deal for them to go to rallies and demonstrations. Republicans for the most part have jobs and don't blindly follow slogans or corrupt politicians. My protest will be in working less - and paying as little in taxes as I possibly can! Canceling cable today as the first step of many to not contribute one iota to this scum bag these people are going to call president. Godd amnamerica! Wright was right - and Barry is a huge leap to the end of this country.

The anti-Obama people don't have time to protest because they are the people who have jobs, take care of their own children, and contribute to our society.

It is the losers who never bothered to do anything with their own lives who are out protesting Bush because hey, why blame yourself for your bad life when you can blame Bush? Just another case of people not taking responsibility for themselves.

Probably. Or at least it proves that the shoe throwers outside the White House are ideologues that can't give Bush up. Like the guy complaining that there won't be any more Bushisms for comedy writers, realize that Bush is gone folks. However, the left can't get over that. On the other hand, the activists can't protest one of their own, even though what happens now is on his watch.

The reason there won't be many protests isn't because everyone in the country loves Obama or believes in his policies. 47% of the voters did not vote for Obama.

No, the reason you see more protesters at Republican Inaugurations than Democratic Inaugurations is that unlike most of the Democratic/socialist demonstrators, Republicans have jobs, careers, and families that need their attention.

Most of the liberal demonstrators at events have nothing else to do, except protest and wait for a handout from Uncle Sam.

These students may be a threat to national security. They should be careful about what they say and do. Protesting the mandate of the people could and will be very unpopular.
