Obama supporters cheat

There are a large number of Obama supporters that HATE free speech. They cannot stand the idea that someone would think different than they. They especially don't like it when someone comes along that can show the hollowness of their faith.

They will burn, attack, and vandalize anything that is pro McCain.

They simply do not want the competition nor the First Amendment - unless it applies to them.

While it is true that it happens on the other side, just a quick browsing of the Internet shows more McCain/Palin signs being vandalized than the reverse.

If you destroy, steal, or vandalize a yard sign, you are NOT helping your party. You are participating in a crime. I hope you get caught. I hope you get punished.



Leave the signs alone.

There are a number of people on BOTH sides of the fence who act like cretins, in every. single. race, national or local. There are plenty of Republicans who deface or destroy Democratic signs during every race in PA, and I'm sure there are some who retaliate. It goes back and forth.

Just like I'm sure there are some Obama supporters who are ageist for thinking McCain is too old to lead, just like there are some bigotted McCain supporters who use racial slurs against Obama.


And as for the edited-in link and the comment that "a quick browsing of the internet shows more McCain/Palin signs being vandalized than the reverse"-- for one thing, seriously? Anecdotal evidence from TEH INTARWEBS is supposed to show that Obama supporters are more likely to vandalize than McCain supporters?

Since I live out on a main drag here in lovely port saint lucifer, I get to deal with signs all the time.
Yardsale signs because I'm near an intersection, political signs since the school across the street is a voting place, for rent signs because it's a long strip of grass, and recently very odd signs saying God is mad that people don't go to church. I blame those on the pentacostals down the street.

Regardless of whose sign it is, unless it belongs to anyone living at this address, it goes into the garbage can. Did I give my permission for these yahoos to stick signs in my lawn? No. Do I want signs cluttering up my lawn I spend every sunday mowing? Nope. So McCain, Obama, Al Gore, they all visit the garbage dump.

On the matter of vandalizing yard signs being a crime, you and I agree. On the matter of who's doing more of it, the anecdotal evidence *I've* seen says Republicans are doing it more. ... and my guess is it is the teenaged children of outspoken Republicans, and not anyone with the experience of having been through an election previously.

Let me lend my voice to your chorus:
Leave the signs alone.
