when the tables are turned.
Rep. Steve Driehaus (D-OH) is upset that a handful of protestors peacefully demonstrated, against his vote for Obamacare, outside of his home. He says “I understand people are going to criticize my decisions – I’m an elected official – but my wife, my kids, my neighbors are out of bounds.”
As my friend Mark LeBar points out to me in a private e-mail (quoted here with Mark’s permission): “Interesting that Rep. Driehaus himself doesn’t take my wife, my kids, my body, or anything else about me, to be ‘out of bounds’ when he legislates. It’s all up for grabs in the legislative process; there are no bounds to what he is entitled to impose on me through force.
Ah, but he's a Rep. of the NSDP; he's SUPPOSED to be able to control your life without you giving him any real static.
His Party says so; if you do, it's hate speech.
