Political Violence

After having smashed the Constitution, some Democrats are concerned for their safety.

Washington (CNN) -- Democratic congressional leaders Wednesday demanded Republicans join them in condemning a spate of threats and vandalism that has followed Sunday's vote on a sweeping overhaul of the U.S. health care system.

More than 10 Democrats have reported trouble since the weekend vote, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters. Windows have been smashed at Democratic offices in at least three states, and federal agents were investigating whether a cut gas line at the home of a Virginia congressman's brother was related to the lawmaker's yes vote.

I don't believe in political violence because when that happens, or when a politician is killed, they become martyrs - their carcass becomes a standard for people to rally around. The British had the ability to kill Hitler in the later days of the World War 2 and decided NOT to exercise that option. I agree with that based on my review of history.

However, the Democrats in Congress should read history and if they did, they'd know that in the past, from Lincoln to McKinley to the Kennedys, there hasn't been a threat before they dropped. It's the ones that don't threaten that you need to worry about. And there are Americans with long memories. Shred the Constitution and sleep uneasy...


By way of review, is it any wonder that the American people are shocked at the blatant lies told them by barack hussein obama?

Very True, Larry.
There are no "real" threats, they are just trying to stir up more tea party hatred. They got what they wanted, yet they are never satisfied. They should be scared, come Nov. they'll be horrified!
