Everyone's A Traitor Around Here

Readers debate whether MEA's push to recall lawmakers is a show of democracy or a bullying tactic

Definitely bullying. Why, I've known canvassers to buttonhole strangers and threaten to stab them in the eye if they didn't sign the petition. One question: if standing around with a clipboard constitutes giving aid and comfort to the enemy, who exactly is the enemy? If FairVoice won't explain who or what, doesn't that make him an accessory to treason?

The only thing worse that circulating a petition is circulating a petition in wartime. javamama might as well have flown out to Afghanistan just to stab a bunch of soldiers in the eye.


  1. Voting = mob rule, I guess I learn something new every day.

  2. underhanded? by exercising multiple constitutionally gauranteed rights?
