    The anti-government feelings have not been as strong as they are today since the 1960's.
    We see many examples of it on this site. The fire is being stoked by a strong right wing media group. The tea parties are fanning the flames.
    The rhetoric has hinted at violence. I know 99% of the anti-government participants would not resort to violence but there are a few individuals who take the rhetoric literally. Anti-government talk shows, rallys, blogs etc. better watch what they say.

    There are other Timothy McVeigh's out there that will get so angered they will justify violence and killing to put out of control government back in its place.

    Don't forget Oklahoma City. Watch what you say.

    McVeigh was a whacko, and not motivated by any of the things which motivate reasonable people.

    Words do not kill people. We don't have to "watch what we say".

    Yeah, words have no ability to persuade. That's why Hitler, despite being one of the most gifted orators in history,

    never got anywhere with that whole Nazism thing of his...

    Well by all means, then, people should shut the hell up and be afraid to speak!

    Sad that anyone would advocate silence. Freedom of expression is the essence of liberty.

    I'll never forget Oklahoma City. Even after the Lakers kick their asses.

    Timothy McVeigh was a nut that got exactly what he deserved...

    That said....the fact remains, NO WACO, NO McVEIGH

    There are a lot of people who don't believe in liberty, period.
