|A Riot in Philadelphia in 1844|
For example, instead of having a riot, you can express your views to your political representatives. It's easy. It's painless. You can sit on your ass and do it. Plus, you won't have to visit the ER or Urgent Care place for stitches. Better still, you won't have to visit the jail and enjoy quality time with someone who has been in jail regularly.
Here are three painless political things that you can do from the comfort of your own home:
1. Write Your Congressman.
2. Write Your Senators.
3. Join a Political Action Committee.
If you are planning to express your beliefs and need to bring a gun, knife, rock, helmet, or sword, you are part of the problem in this country. Sit your ass down, write your congressman, and find something to watch on TV. I've written my congressman on the topic of guns several times. It's easy and it will make you feel better. If you disagree with me, I would strongly prefer that you write you own damn congressman rather than throw a bottle at me.
One more thing: when it's time to vote, go out to the polls and vote. Once you have voted, generally accept the results of the election.
