Bring back the draft for protesters...

    If they stay on the sidewalks or have a street permit, fine.

    But if they are videotaped blocking traffic on streets/freeways/highways or committing acts of vandalism or violence; they are immediately dragged off to the nearest recruitment center and then shipped directly to bootcamp.

    Just kidding. Or not.

      That draft board stuff is draconian. If the protests are violent, destructive or infringes upon the public thoroughfare then arrests would be in order. I would advise protesters to get a permit. But, I want to see plenty of lawful demonstrations and protests in the eventuality that Trump gets out of line.

        In retrospect...

        The Watts riots of the 60's finally forced the government to pass decent civil rights laws.

        The Vietnam riots of the 70's finally forced the government to get the hell out of Vietnam.

          Yes, how true, it happened before and it can happen again. So, the left is not completely powerless as some would like to believe.

              The more extreme aspects of the Trump agenda will be subject to ever glaring eyes of global television, perhaps too much adverse attention and publicity will stay his hand. It is no wonder that Hanity advised Trump to keep the mainstream media away from him. It is a little easier when you can do the deplorable things in secret.

                ”CNN, NYT, WaPo & others shown to have colluded by Wikileaks should not receive WH press credentials,” one person tweeted.

                To which Hannity responded: “Amen.”
                To that I say, "Amen".

                  Trump probably considers all press that is not fawning over him just short of treasonous. That, in itself, will be the focus of media attention, let us see if he can rise over that storm as his first challenge

                    I consider MSM's unethical behavior a betrayal of a trust to the American people, and to the world. I have no confidence or  faith in them. Honestly, I admire anyone who isn't brainwashed by their bias influence.

                Its funny , I was driving by some  " deplorable " homes in the area where I live today thinking about that  exact    terminology used by Hilary ,, They way that I was raised  "Trump deplorables " probably would have scraped me off the bottom of their boots.    So hey , keep on with that attitude it's is after all a proven one .  It worked really, really well for Hilary !

                  It should work a little better for the protesters.

      Draft the protesters that get out of line and break the law?  That might be a good idea for those who want a free sex change.   But, if they go to prison they might be able to get a sex change in California.

    Draft them? That would cause more protests, and property damage. Then we'd have to draft them. It would go on and on until we had so many we'd have to start a war or something, to give them work to do.

    Nah. Let's just arrest them if they do something illegal and leave it at that. I don't even believe in making them get permits. I think it is terrible that you have to apply for a permit to peacefully protest.

    I'd protest that but I'd be afraid you'd suggest they draft me.

    I don't know , To me the protesters were drafted  in excellent form by the alt-left  media .  The totally corrupted DNC and  the  morally bankrupt  Hilary campaign  .  Not to mention  the  entire education  institution !

    I'll make a prediction ,  Trump won -  people who care about themselves , their country  and the  government , and even their party ,will get over it , those who won't ,won't , too bad for the bitterness  they will have to swallow.

    Think of your  poor pilfered  DNC .
