Hey, guys and gals... hard to beleive, but this much is true: Obama ran his campaign with the cornerstone being reforming health care. He won, easily. He is now following through with what those of us who voted him in want him to do. It is his turn to drive the bus... your time will come agian at some point. Sit back and deal with it... something tells me that simply shouting people down at town halls isnt going to derail what the majority of the people voted in.

Right now we are in two countries trying to democracy a chance; yet, here at home, we are carrying assault rifles to town hall meetings such as occurred Monday in Arizona. What an example we are sending to the rest of the world when we had fair elections here, but are intimidating rational debate and discussion. We cannot allow a bunch of bullies to derail discussion. These groups resemble the Taliban and those who try to stifle democracy. I'm a Republican, but I don't agree with what has been going on, if you have a better idea, voice. If not, get out of the way.

Winning an election is not the equivalent of a dictatorship. You do not get to "drive the bus" and disregard what the passengers want and need. For those who did not vote for Obama, he is still our president and accountable to all.

yawn. hey common sense and be americans its guys like you who let stuff like the patriot act pass. Stimulus pass. T,A,R,P pass. and all the de-regulation of medicine and the financial system pass. granted i dont always agree with the the method these guys are just as bad as code pink but someone has to make noise. If you trust these guys these same guys who where here oh when the economy went to hell ,, help deregulate health care and not enforce imigration laws etc to just write a bill no one has read. A bill that doesnt exist. in what 2 or 3 weeks? If it was that easy all the worlds healthcare would be fine and none of the worlds problems would exist if it was that easy. If he wants reform there should be real reform not just an expansion of medicare and god knows what else. you know this bill is full of stuff that people who wrote it or are voting on dont even understand. Like i said dont agree with the method but somoene has to bring attention to the fact that its a one party country getting to pass all the laws. Its not like thats a bad thing right? i mean look at california we are a one party state look how great we are doing!

Hey Duane,

Like I said, we have a democracy, not a dictatorship. We have a system of checks and balances, through the voting booth, not through vigilantes or mob rule. That's why we have a senate and a house of representatives. After 8 years of Bush, the American people spoke.

In a democracy, accountability is through voting, not force of arms or violating the Constitution. Not happy, then vote em out.

Remember, this is a country for all Americans, not just those people who say, "I want my country back!"
