NH 2020 opposition must yell to be heard

The question has been raised as to why there are the large signs saying “Stop NH 2020” and none saying “Yes.” Here is a possible explanation:

The large “Stop NH 2020” signs illustrate the principle that, when someone feels he is losing an argument, he yells. They are yelling. The people who are displaying them know they are in the minority and feel they have to yell.

At the public hearing I attended concerning NH 2020, almost everyone there expressed support for planning to regulate growth and development. These people feel they are in the majority, that they are being heard, and they don’t have to display large signs or yell to be heard.
