Read the comments on the article. About 80% of them are cheering the vandalism and mocking the owner of the car.

My daughter has her temporary driving permit and I take her out so she can get the requisite hours for her license. This week we went to rural areas. About 65% of the presidential signs were for McCain. Of these, perhaps 25% had been damaged in some way, mostly with spray paint. I did not see a single Obama sign with any damage.

The hatred on the left is stunning! These people have issues.

We worried about a brick coming through our picture window, we have a huge Rep. flag hanging in it. However, this week all the Obama signs that were everywhere in two towns have come down. I’m not worried anymore, people are shaking off the Koolaid I think.

From the article: Police estimated damage at $4,500. Police classified the incident as “criminal mischief/hate crime” and said it appeared “to be politically/racially motivated because the victim affixed a bumper sticker supporting the McCain campaign as well as an anti-Obama bumper sticker.”

A while ago, I jokingly - well, half jokingly - suggested it would be fun to go around slappping McCain/Palin stickers overr Obama sticker on cars. Then it occured to me, what would really be funny would be Obama supporters then vandalizing each other’s cars.

I have a McCain-Palin sticker on my car along with another that makes it clear the driver is an active - and practicing - 2nd Amendment supporter. Funny, but no one has touched my car.

I bought a new car and agaonized over whether to put my McPalin sticker on. In the end, I went ahead and put it on because I'll be DAMNED if I will allow ANYONE to intimidate me into not actively supporting who I want for President. Why should they be able to support their candidate with impunity? Do I not have the right to show who I support?

Yes, yes yes . . .I take the risk of having the car vandalized, but I decided that I would NOT be intimidated by some left wing kool-aid drinking jackass who doesn't have an independent thought in their head.

What is it that Thomas Jefferson said . . .[T]he tree of liberty must be replenished from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. I am making my stand here.

Has anyone ever parked their car, got out, and just acted as another face in the crowd, but all along just waiting to pounce on one of these vandals?

If I had my car keyed, that is exactly what my next plan of attack would be.

I was seriously thinking of buying an armored car as a traveling vehicle and as an investment. British Ferrets were going for about 6,000 dollars. They have Rolls Royce engines and the overall condition on the vehicles was very used and poor. Replacing belts and hoses and wiring wouldn’t have been a problem. Replacing brakes and gauges would have been but not impossible.

Rusting out the body and frame was impossible so was worrying about fender benders.

What stopped me was overall comfort. Driving that thing for anything other than short trips would wear you out.

Yes I watched a guy key my car, I got his license number and looked him up on the Internet. I called him at home, acted like a friend and said “ Hey Bob, didn't I see you in the Barnes and Noble parking lot yesterday?” when he said “yes, who is this?” I told him I am the woman who's car you keyed, why did you do that? The stunned silence on the other end was worth the scratched paint, then I quickly said “I know where you live”.

I put a GWB 04 Sticker on my brandnew pickup, and the day after, someone keyed the hell out of it. It wasnt some kid because they followed the contours of the side very closely.
It cost my Insurance company{ and everyone who has the same company} 1200.00 dollars to repair.
Free speech is a thing only the left can exercise I Guess.

I live in a Broward County, Florida city. The McCain signs out number the Obama signs. I rarely see Obama bumper stickers, but overall I see less bumper stickers for either candidate here this year.

My McCain/Palin yard sign was smashed down, and a neigbnor’s was trashed. I found the plastic McCain sheet down the street, and repaired the bent frame and put it back up for him.

So far, I haven’t had any vandalism to my car, but I check every morning before I drive off for flat tires and damage.

I have a McCain Palin hat in back window of our car.

We live in Florida and took a trip up to Asheville, NC this week and I was surprised at the Obama crowd. They looked at my car and treated me like dirt at the grocery store.

I took the hat out of the car. I actually felt intimidated! I can't afford any damage to my car. I felt like a wimp. I now know what it must be like to live in a Country where Freedom doesn't reign and there is no justice for all.

Just like Joe the Plumber, I can't dream about what the future could bring to me and my family. Wonder what Dr. King would think about following his dreams in this environment?

Who ever wins, it is not going to be a uniting situation, IMHO. If we think Wall Street is pounding our Country wait til November 5th.

Circle the wagons FReepers!

Question: Isn't that the purpose of terrorism? To scare the bejesus out of people where they are afraid to speak out. Wasn't this one of supposed purposes of the 9/11 attacks? To intimidate and scare ordinary people from leading normal lives?

I REFUSE to lay down and play that game!

Sounds like a “Hate Crime”

We've got a local City Council race going on, and even tho it's a "nonpartisan" office, one of the candidates is a Jewish Republican (makes mention of party affiliation on his signs).

A half dozen of the signs have had mustaches and glasses markered onto his picture, but one had a swastika drawn.....so the local Barney Fifes are investigating as a "hate crime".

Sadly, you are entirely correct. I make no display of my politics because I have enough sources and causes of stress in my own personal life without having my property vandalized or destroyed in the face of a government which will neither enforce laws or allow the citizen to defend his property. At every level, our governments are dismal, disgraceful failures. I go armed at all times and will defend my life and those of my loved ones, but am not planning to go to jail over material possessions.
