My response to the anti-democratic astro-turfers

 

In my opinion, it should be illegal to lie about what is in public bills that may or may not make it into law:   This is the same as bearing false witness in court, or perjury, because this is the Court of Public Opinion, and truth is necessary for a democracy to function.  Saying, for instance, that the Public Option would kill your grandma is an out and out lie, and as such it steals your ability to make decisions based on the truth, and is therefore theft, and should be prosecuted as such. 
Perjury and theft: the platform of the Conservative Big Money interests.

I have a friend who says the people who brought the world's economies to their knees, (specifically ours,) should be tried for treason.

Both your idea and his have my full support.
