    Here's an interesting but disturbing trend I've noticed among died-in-the-wool supporters of a particular candidate. Many of them resort to name-calling, profanity, insults, and even violence when anyone opposes them. This is evident among the ardent Trump supporters now, and it was evident among the ardent Sanders supporters during the primaries. Even some of the Obama diehards were this way in 2008.

    It's unnerving but unfortunately a fact of life these days that many of the supporters can't tout their candidate in a civil and productive way. Noooo, their actions have to be tactless and threatening.

    On the other hand what can we expect when the nominee himself pushes his way through the campaign with classless bullying tactics?

    Ours is a very unhealthy society at the moment, and has been for some time.

    The rhetoric of today is whiffle ball, compared to that of when the nation was young.

    Some of you dudes need to bone up on your history.

    Probably supporters of every candidate have gotten a bit overwrought at times. Having seen some of these Trump supporters in other threads unrelated to a candidate, they are pretty much that way all the time.

    Skert on a message board huh?

    Seems like Democrats committed a fair amount of violence at Trump rallies.

    We will see.

    If anyone gets violent, the LEO will get violent with them.

    True...

    Founding Fathers might have taken ten paces and turn and shot each other where today the politicians take ten paces and bellyache at each other!
