Today was a big day in the health care debate. There were hundreds of rallies/protests across the country as people voiced their opposition to a government takeover of health care.

In the Phoenix area, 1,000 people showed up outside Democrat Congressman Harry Mitchell’s office in the morning, and then nearly 1,000 showed up at a town hall held by Congressman John Shadegg.

The East Valley Tribune covered both events.

Reports from the Shadegg town hall were that it was a very civil discussion.  And there wasn’t a big ACORN or Union presence.  Conclusion?  The reason you are seeing videos of major conflict at town halls across the country, is because the unions and ACORN are sowing discord to try to discredit those Americans who truly want to be heard.  When the union thugs aren’t around to intimidate people, tempers stay in check.

I’m not saying that there aren’t some loud and rowdy protesters from the right, but the only times there have been violence is when ACORN and/or unions are in the mix. 

It’s more than a coincidence.
