But, considering that technically our government IS the citizenry, I ask: Isn't there something fundamentally self-destructive about a government hiring and paying people to protest against regular citizens who oppose bills the government is considering? Isn't there something deeply twisted about a government even being able to hire its own protesters in the first place?
The website's large-type headline announces: "Work to Pass Obama's Healthcare Plan and Get Paid to Do it! $10-15 hr!"It seems George Soros has pledged $5 million to fund such "work". Again I ask, what will the government do with the unemployed? Are we going to see an effort to hire most of the unemployed as paid-by-the-federal-government protesters? Will they become Obama's new "civilian national security force" or something?
It's a web ad on Craigslist: "You can work for change. Join motivated staff around the country working to make change happen. You can make great friends and money along the way. Earn $400-$600 a week."
