Change not everyone believes in

President-elect Barack Obama is scheduled to be sworn in at noon, a little less than two hours from now. If the Supreme Court is going to declare that he's not actually a U.S. citizen, it'd better get a move on.

But seriously, I was just thinking this morning about how weird this all must be for one of those people unable to appreciate what's happening today. You'd think the mere fact that we'll soon be rid of George Bush and Dick Cheney would be exciting to anyone.

And yet, "PersecutedPatriot76" is planning to protest the Obama inauguration today in Atlanta. Here's his Craig's List notice:

attention ron paul supporters, libertarians, market anarchists, agorists, minimists, porcs, free staters, bob barr lovers, and PEOPLE WHO CELEBRATE THE VALUE OF THEIR INDIVIDUAL SOVEREIGNTY OVER GOVERNMENT:

there will be a PEACEFUL anti-obama demonstration in downtown atlanta on the date of the inauguration.

native georgians, and other descendants of the colonials (white and black), have allowed the federal government to pervert many of the basic ideas our not-too-distant forefathers died to ensure for us. it is time we say "NO MORE".

banners and protesters needed! come one come all!!!

Although I haven't contacted PP76, I gather from his wording that he doesn't oppose Obama himself, but rather the federal government and the presidency in general. From the fact that PP76 doesn't announce the time and place of his protest — and from his web handle — I'm also guessing he's aware that he's advocating a fairly unpopular cause.

I just have one question: What's an "agorist?"
