So you are telling me that the people who voted for change, the same people who kicked out the republicans are now still upset and want Obama the socialist out, even though he laid out his plan and told the American people exactly what he was going to do? I'm sorry but the people that voted the republicans out and Obama and the democrats in are not these same people. The people that were outraged with the direction the country was going spoke and they spoke loud and clear and voted for the change they wanted. The people who were at these rallys were either ron Paul bots, which started their movement several years ago when ron came on to the scene (as in became popular), or they are right winged republicans who are angry at their complete loss of power! The small governent movement by the rp bots was/is legitimate as they have had that position ever since they came on the scene. However they weren't the majority at these rallys as evident by a) the types of signs being held up and b) by the lack of knowledge about what they were protesting and their lack of knowledge on the subject as a whole! Ron Paul bots usually consist of well educated (with regards to their cause) people, these people were anything but knowledgable. In my opinion, if you give legitimacy to the right wing and their call for small government then you are taking away from the legitimacey of the Paul bots movement. And while the message may be the same the impact of the message is not and it only cheapens/weakens the cause. So am I saying that this movement only recently appeared? No, I'm just saying that the people who were outraged already spoke and made it clear what they wanted when they voted Obama and the dems in. The other movement (small government) has been around for a while and it didn't magically grow to the size it is now because only now are people outraged, it grew because it was high jacked by the right to be used for their own gain. I'd like to point out the fact that the Ron Paul movement during the election was all but laughed at by the very same people (fox news) that are now championing his cause. And if that doesn't reek of bs to you then nothing will!
