Don't you believe something has changed if protesters exercising their First Amendment Rights will be facing tear gas and all sorts of riot gear ONLY if they are protesting at the DNC in Denver? Mind you, protestors appearing at the RNC in September will be facing none of this. What has changed? Do we remember the time when we could depend on the media to bring us an approximation to the truth? If we no longer have a truthful media to bring us the news, how will we keep the government accountable? The media is even requesting that they be kept far and away from the protest camp due to being in harms way. So I guess it is up to those who have not sold out in any sense of the word to uphold democratic principles, processes, and most of all rights, such as "The First Amendment". The corruption we are witnessing today is a reality, and a major "Mother may, I " step away from Democracy.
Hopefully, strong leaders will come out of this disarray. Good people who will lead this Party away from the corruption that has overtaken it. We are seeing this evolution now in the Puma Pac organizations. These are the watch dogs of government that are sorely needed in every democracy.
Fortunately, as this Convention soon begins, we will have the free
voices of PUMAs keeping the
blogosphere informed with the true state
of affairs in Denver. Could this be our modern day version of "Radio Free Europe"? What would Jefferson say? He would say,"Just Say No Deal"...Of Course!
