Isn’t that some sort of crime that is punishable?

Maybe they have a sign-sharing deal. McCainites from 9:30a to 1:30, and Romneyacs from 1:30 to dusk.

Maybe it’s their property and they changed candidates.

Here in Virginia, most of the Ron Paul Revolution signs are illegally placed in public right-of-ways. That’s a strict no-no here, and signs are torn down all the time when they are put in the public right-of-way.

I don’t know what the rules are in New Hampshire.

I also couldn’t tell if that corner was actually in the street, or somebody’s house corner.

We’ve had cases where a candidate will put signs up on a street corner which is a person’s private property, and that person will ask us to remove those signs when we put up our candidate signs.

However, if someone was filming us, we’d find out who they were, and we explain on camera what we were doing.

We also had a case where a bunch of candidate signs were taken down, on film. Turned out it was the candidate’s own supporters, drumming up support by filming “bad opponents” taking down signs.

And yes, sometimes people just take down other signs.

In fact, in Virginia it is legal to take down the signs in the public right-of-way, because they aren’t allowed there and are considered trash. Of course, putting up signs would also be illegal.

We’ve seen people put signs six inches in front of other signs, on both sides of signs, and even stapled to the signposts.

Supporters go crazy with signs.

All the signs that are stuck in snowbanks up here in southern NH will be toppling over by Tuesday anyway, since it’s gonna be near 60 degrees on Primary Day.

What a staged event.

I would wonder who those people really work for as they obviously tipped off the news media about this, and do not seem to be too concerned about their being filmed.

2000 — McCain accused President Bush’s people for doing the same thing or ....... something like that.

Romney campaign has definently led the dirty tricks this time around.

Why can’t they just run without cheating?

I do not know whether this was staged or not but it is very common - sign switching and tearing down signs. Some times the campaign workers just get over zealous.

Down here where I live, it’s also illegal to place signs in the R.O.W.

There is one pinhead ron paul supporter around here who got ticketed for it.

How do you know if that wasn’t staged by McCain people you don’t know you are just ready to jump on Mitt for anything!

It could even be Huck’s people doing this!

Thanks for your service.

Your statement, “There is one pinhead ron paul supporter around here who got ticketed for it.”

Were you counting other pinheads too? Just for accuracy.

From how I read Ron Paul, I believe he would chose our battles more wisely, Constitutionally, make sure our military action has the support of the vast majority of Americans before an engagement. It is the responsibility of Congress to declares war, but not since WWII. Why not? See the difference? Cut and run, no, Iraq has to firmly assume their responsibility and sort this out from here.

That’s Mittwit morality for ya!

From those same nice folks who brought you...

*Evangelicals for Mitt and the misrepresentation of Thompson’s abortion record;

*The Phoney Fred website;

*The lie on the eve of the Iowa vote that Fred was dropping out;

*Negative ads and flyers aimed at McCain and the Huckster;

etc.

Pure oily Mitt sleaze...

This kind of thing has only been going on since about 1776 or so.

I havn’t seen a single sign from anyother campaign that is out in the R.O.W. of a road, or nailed to a utility pole.

I knew a woman who was threatened with prosecution for taking down Demonrat signs. However, she stood firm: they had been on her property!

I think that the only place you have the right to put a sign is one your own property, or on the private property of someone who consents to your sign. If it’s on public land, I regard the sign as fair game, and I will take down any Demonrat sign I see.

Exactly.

I would check your state and local laws before doing so.
