One who intends to leave others better off for his having existed.

If Tea Party protesters can fill government hallways, could the Anti-Profligate Public Debt/Swim Center Crowd fill City Council's meeting room wearing Hawaiian shirts, or are Greensboro’s Fiscal Conservatives too apathetic and unorganized to pull off a symbolic gesture?


Protesters to ‘Die’ in the Senate


 


…As the Senate gets into its second week of debate on health care, the protesters plan to turn the chamber’s offices and hallways into “government waiting rooms,” pretending to be sick patients waiting for treatment. As the day wears on, their “untreated illnesses” will get worse, and some will “die.” Yet, even in death, some corpses only plan to leave by force.


 


Mr. Meckler appeals to his Tea Party kindred to make the Christmastime “sacrifice” to come out and feign sickness and death, noting that “throughout history American Patriots have made far greater sacrifices than this to protect our liberty.”
