    Republican Party activists bent on denying access to health care for the poor and average Americans have levied death threats at members of Congress. In addition to death threats, a few, but vocal, Republicans have targeted traditional American Town Hall meetings for a series of disruptions, violence, and intimidation for the purpose of shutting down debate on healthcare in America. Their threats, lies, and misinformation have been well documented in the media and continue as members of Congress meet with their constituents in their home districts.

    For example, Sarah Palin, the former Republican Vice Presidential Candidate who was forced to resign in disgrace over allegations she was involved in scandals in the state of Alaska, lied on Friday about the President´s health care plan on her Facebook page. Palin stated that "the sick, the elderly, and the disabled" would suffer because of "rationed care." Palin went on to add that the plan would create a "death panel" which would make decisions on who would live and who would die. There is no such provision in the President´s healthcare plan. Palin´s comments are blatant lies made not only to derail healthcare reform in the country, but to distract from her own failed candidacy and her forced resignation as Alaskan Governor.

    It is clear that the protests are orchestrated and fueled by Republican Party leaders, such as admitted prescription drug addict Rush Limbaugh. The violence, disruptions, and death threats have outraged the majority of Americans. Videos circulating on Youtube and throughout the Internet show many of these Republicans hitting, shoving, yelling, and disrupting what would be otherwise peaceful meetings to discuss the issue. One video shows several Republican Party activists holding up signs calling President Obama a "n*gger" while other videos show GOP activists giving members of Congress the finger. Many of the Republican Party activists can be seen sporting Nazi Swastikas on their placards or clothing. Some have even adopted Adolph Hitler´s mustache as a symbol of their cause. It appears that the Republican Party has become a White Supremacist organization. Not a single member of the United States Congress is both black and Republican. In an example of the ignorance and stupidity that has permeated the Republican Party, a GOP activist in North Carolina can be heard in one of the videos yelling, "Get your Government hands off my Medicare."



    These Republican Party activists don´t want to be civil. They don´t want measured debate. And they don´t want other Americans to hear the conversation about healthcare. Their Republican Party leaders in the Senate and House of Representatives approve of these tactics and encourage their continuance – even if it results in violence, destruction of property, and death threats.

    Let´s face facts, these Republican Party activists are nothing more than conservative, racist terrorists who are happy the nation was attacked by the Taliban and who want President Obama, our military, and our nation to fail.

    The fringe right of the GOP are engaged in political sharia, the unlawful stoppage of the democratic process by yelling, screaming, and threatening.

    The proper lesson to teach our children is that only in social civility can an informed democratic people facilitate public awareness.

    Thus arrest the shariasts when they break the law, and lead them out hooded and shackled for our cameras, to show the rest of the world the great majority of Americans will not tolerate the actions of those who hate America, democracy, and its political process.

    Elections have consequences -- the GOP lost in 2008. The majority of Americans despise the GOP, and until it changes a drops the thinking of the likes of Sarah and gang, it will remain in the wilderness.

    Somehow I don't think the image of hooding and shackling people would do much to impress upon people our great love of democracy.

    The nutters shouol be removed if they're disruptive, though. If they want to participate they should do so civilly.

    And the "keep your government hands off of my medicare" is sad because it shows a total lack of understanding of the processess that allow them to receive medical treatment.

    Jillian, I like the avatar!

    Oh, I agree with the hooding, etc, should be dropped, but it is just so much fun to poke those loonies.

    What is medicare but funded government healthcare? And the HMO rep gets between you and your doctor. The opponents just don't make any sense other than they are squalling and bawling.

    but that is cool because he is doing it civilly.

    He doesn't like being identified 'spot on' of being a disrupter, but all engaged in political sharia, like Xenophon, are liars. Easy to spot and easy to point out to students in high school and college.

    The repubs have been orchestrating this for quite some time. They are purposely trying to disrupt these meetings. Fox news is the main cheerleader, posting locations of ONLY the democratic town hall meetings.

    Democrats are now responding, and now that's making news, although Repubs have been orchestrating this for months.
