In glorious 1960s, liberals were more than happy to have themselves hauled away by the police, or at least that’s the way it is presented today (I was born in 1989, so I can’t say for sure). Are conservatives willing to do the same?

My question raised some eyebrows but most people who responded seemed to be in agreement.

Here are some of the responses:

@RoseBlue: I’ve thought about that. And while my children are young, the answer is no

@Lib_Berated Probably not, we have jobs

@lhuffman333 Sorry, but Repubs are busy-Students, jobs, families-We aren’t capable of hippie crap!

@MerlePearl Libs were the ones who did the violence in the ’60′s. Can’t see that happening with conservatives. We don’t like messes…

@Vocalyz you never know Joe ….we already show up in bigger & bigger crowds…hey btw didn’t the POLICE forces back @ScottBrownMA hmm

@JackieSeal mehhh.. don’t really have an answer. some will, some won’t. but our message seems to be getting thru…

I think @JackieSeal has a good point. So far, our message is getting through to the masses, however the politicians seem clueless as ever. We’re nowhere near that point now, but should we ever cross that line? When? How? Just something to ponder on as the midterm elections loom.
