    Beck, who had Broden on his show numerous times, is distancing himself.

    GOP Candidate Stephen Broden: Violent Revolution Is 'On The Table'

    A Tea Party-backed congressional candidate in Texas is doing Sharron Angle's suggestive talk of "Second Amendment remedies" one better: he says violent overthrow of the government is "on the table."

    "Our nation was founded on violence," Stephen Broden, a pastor running against Democratic Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson in Texas's 30th Congressional District, said in a recent interview with Dallas's WFAA-TV. "The option is on the table. I don't think that we should ever remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms."

    Don't ding ding salivate on this one, Pavlov.

    Broden is an angry black guy, not an angry white guy.

    No red meat for MSNBC here.

    He's hovering dangerously close to advocating the overthrow of the legally constiuted government there.

    And yes, that actually IS a crime.

    In a legal sense you are right. In the spirit of the thoughts of Jeffereson, though, a revolution every couple of decades was pretty much what he was endorsing.

    In any case, if the revolution fails, it's treason. If it succeeds, it's the overthrow of the unjust.

    History is written by the victors.

    In a very real Constitutional sense, if it succeeds, given the strength and organization of the Military, the Guard and the Reserve, this would represent a vast majority of the populace. An uprising that succeeds under this particular consideration would be one against a ruling authority so out of touch with the will of the people that it would collapse at the first show of force.

    Think Bastille Day. Who wants cake?
