    Really started in '09, has only gotten worse since. What if armed mini insurrections like this become a norm? Pandemic?

    I know we're a nation founded on violent, bloody revolution, but that's supposed to be the LAST LAST resort......and if this current administration doesn't change it's dirty, underhanded, authoritarian ways to ramming its agenda thru.....it'll only worsen this trend and encourage further attacks on its party.......


    Tucson rampage casts light on toxic political tone

    WASHINGTON – Politicians of all stripes are bound to be haunted by Rep. Gabrielle Giffords' warning, 10 months before she was shot, to cool the rhetoric.

    It's been a year or more of raw politics, with anger spilling over on both sides and gun-related metaphors coming loosely from the lips of some candidates and activists. Giffords, a figurative target of the right, on Saturday became the actual target of a gunman who shot her through the head and killed at least five others. She was critically wounded.

    The gunman's motive is not known.

    But in Pima County, Ariz., Sheriff Clarence Dupnik suggested "all this vitriol" in recent political discourse might be connected to Saturday's shootings. "This may be free speech," he told reporters, "but it's not without consequences."

    Whatever the motive, the toxic tone of the national debate is certain to draw greater scrutiny.

    I suppose that depends on the choices we make.

    If we start eliminating the hate, the lies, the corruption from our own lives and then help others do the same, then no.

    If we keep feeding it, then yes. It's inevitable. Human nature doesnt change unless we let God change us. If we keep feeding our souls hate, lies, and corruption, then it will lead to more violence and a break down of our families. If our families break down, the nation wont be far behind.

    that are chock full of hate lies and corruption, YOU are part of the problem.

    You spam the board with your cut and paste talking points and then make and agree with BS claims that are based on biased opinions of your fellow righties.

    Like this completely baseless and bs opinion based gem provided by the T that you applauded


    Way to shine a big bright light on the problems that you and your fellow hacks are creating and promoting with your "hate, lies, and corruption."

    When I saw "Really started in '09, has only gotten worse since" I had to laugh. You really think it goes all the way back to 09? It goes back further than that, chief.

    No, there will not be another civil war. The US government will put a stop, a hard and fast ending to anyone they find committing acts of violence and murder and hate.

    The right will just keep on spewing their gun violence rhetoric. Obviously the message is to deny words matter. It isn't looking like ANY Republicans are going to tell the Palin, Bachmann or Angle, to stop the dangerous propaganda.

    Come Eric Cantor, you can be the one to do it.

    Unfortunately, shooting politicians is part of a long American tradition that interprets the 2nd Amendment as an opportunity for any "wingnut" to exercise his/her "constitutional rights!"

    The US shares 5,525 miles of border (including 1,538 miles with Alaska) with Canada, a country with stricter gun rules - is it just a matter of coincidence that their "wingnuts" have no history of shooting their politicians?
