Protesting in America

As we know there is always someone protesting something, right or wrong. And this seems to help further their cause. I have always been on the side of the argument that I must voice my opinon/vote because without doing so I feel I don't have the right to complain.

OK, I was wondering why the Conservatives do not protest/march on a cause. And the only reason I could come up with was because we are the only people working and this would slow down the ecomomy and take money from our pockets.

Whats your thoughts?

Sometimes I feel like you said...if I take off work to go march or protest, my bills dont get paid. I dont have a savings built up just so I can use it to pay bills whilst I go protest

OK, in order to get a response, maybe I should ask it this way.

Why is it that we as Conservatives do not get together and march/protest?

Democrats and people with no jobs need something to do during the day. They also need some way to vent their anger because the goverment is not doing enough for them. After all, food stamps aren't accepted for schlitz and OE 1800

What would protest today? Are you still upset about Mexicans in Texas? You really must realize most of western and south USA was Mexican territory. White people killed their way into ownership of the south and west. Now they feel that they should not allow the original owners of this area to live and work here? Relax and enjoy some nachos and Mexican beer.

Because we are too busy trying to advance our own lives rather than asking for handouts and demanding the govt take care of us.

because were too busy working!
unlike our idiot liberal counterparts who sit around smoking dope, collecting welfare, and generally just being a bunch of lazy POS with nothing better to do than complain and protest.

Monkey, if you don't have anything positive to say, then I would rather you just post in the kids section.
