    Default Town Hall Meeting with U.S. Congressman Brian Baird

    I, David William Hedrick, a member of the silent majority, decided that I was not going to be silent anymore. So, I let U.S. Congressman Brian Baird have it. I was one questioner out of 38, that was called at random from an audience that started at 3,000 earlier in the evening. Not expecting to be called on, I quickly scratched what I wanted to say on a borrowed piece of paper and with a pen that I borrowed from someone else in the audience minutes before I spoke. So much for the planned talking points of the right wing conspiracy.

    People are waking from a long slumber and politicians are getting nervous their lobbyist money sucking, leer jet flying, fat, easy, lazy, pompous Washington party could be over. Warms my cold black heart.

    That was great. Even though President Barack Obama may have ran one of the most successful and innovative campaigns ever and even got my vote, that does not give him the right to turn this country into a "socialist" state. Him and Pelosi need to need to realize that after such a extreme right President like Bush you can not counter by going extremely left. I agree with what that former Marine had to say there, our so-called leaders in Washington need to moderate their stances.

    Great freakin video. I hope that all americans keep the pressure going on these politicans.

    What kills me tho is that the Demo Party-Hard left wackos, think we're all un-american, Nazi loving racists. But, how can they not see that these people at these town hall meetings are made up of both parties? You have registered republicans and demo's that are speaking out against what they are doing and attempting to do to us.

    Hopefully, some of us will, "THINK" next time before we vote. Politicans are car salesmen, and leopards don't change their spots no matter what they try to make you believe.

    Nazis were not leftists. That guy does not have his history down.

    That's like saying GWB increased the military. So he increased the size of government. So he's a leftist.

    People talk about socialism without even knowing what it means. How could they know if America is becoming "socialist" since they haven't even studied the term. Would they know the difference between socialism, communism and social democracy? No. I think talking loud and saying big words doesn't equate sound, constructive criticism.

    You mean the Nazis and the Russians weren't best friends? Who knew?

    You're banging your head against a brick wall around this site. I've given up, myself. Good luck.

    glad a few others aren't buying this "socialism" moniker either. The nazi's intertwined the government and corporate interests which is the definition of corporatism or Fascism. Just because the nazi's called themselves the Nationalist Socialist Party doesn't mean they were socialists.

    Looks like America hasn't jumped the shark... it has jumped the whale.

    I'm afraid the polarized next 20 years will be ugly.

    Why hasn't this level of anger been directed towards the health insirance industry that charges 700/month for a healthy family whether you go to a doctor and are sick or not. Or limits your benefits when you are sick, or drops your covereage because you are too much a liability, or the lawyers who run up insane malpractice cases, or to the uninsured who charge up huge expenses and then don't pay.

    We have arguably the worst system for health care in the civilized world and not a very impressive record either. I have friends going to Mexico to get better care for less money. Stem cell care that has cured their MS. Treatments not available here.

    Let's direct the anger where it belongs... making the system better. That means that everyone comes to the table CONSTRUCTIVELY and elements of all voices are heard and included where it makes sense. Voicing an angry opinion and walking away is not very constructive. It's dramatic, but useless.

    I'm an independent who votes for the best person. The current political system appears to be the biggest problem we face. The back and forth fighting while other countries are moving forward can't be the right way to go.

    Put some constructive solutions forward and get you elected reps to have them included in the discussion... Or just yell at someone and walk away while everyone applauds out of worthless induced bravado while the country as a whole fall behind.
