Well think about the civil rights movements.  They were largely peaceful.

What it takes is number ...

This shows that some folk will do anything to buy votes and do not have the courage to stand up for what they believe in. Power at any price?

People just have to figure out how to use it to their advantage.

Strength in numbers.

Those in fringe groups (like the kkk and other crazy anti-joo kooks) will always feel powerless to change things.  They will never have the numbers to make a change in their favor.

I find that comforting.  :)

But for sane people.....its going to come when people stop playing party politics and join forces on issues important to us all.

This is not why the US authorities would stop the encirclement and you know it or you are not as s ...

Excuse me?

How would that not be a security issue?

You can't trap people....any people.

And especially not the president.

Are you kidding me?  Its not even close to being reasonable.

A ring of people one person deep is a security issue? The White House is the seat of power and should not be treated like a normal private residence.

Is crowd control at public events not also trapping people into an area? How does this differ? Why is the President above the things the people have to endure?

Democracy in the US will only work when the smaller groups can get people elected. You work with a strict 2 party policy that is nearly impossible to circumvent and it requires ridiculous sums of money for anyone to get elected.

In the UK many minority political parties get representation due to a better system, we even have MP,s that are not connected to any political party. That can not happen in the US
