    How does any group have the right to threaten elected officials, and why is it a "great idea"?

    There's an obscure little line in the Constitution that allows for free speech... probably a stupid little oversight on the part of the founders, but nonetheless, it's there if you look for it.

    Will, your article specifically states no threats of violence. That means nothing illegal done. Don't go getting carried away.

    I can't find the text of any of the letters, as they are all in the possession of the FBI. I think it's safe to say that if they weren't threatening, this would not have come to the attention of law enforcement. Why do you insist on defending an extremist group's right to carry out a threatening action about which you have no knowledge?

    No, waterboarding is a war crime.

    Did you even read your own OP?

    The FBI and DHS said there do not appear to be credible or immediate threats of violence attached to the letters.
    Extremist group demands governors resign, FBI says - CNN.com

    That is in the 3rd paragraph, so get you panties out of that twist or the next thing you will be saying is that the group is affiliated with the Tea Party.

    It would probably be a good idea to investigate why this group thinks it can deliver on an untimatum for 50 governors to resign their office within 3 days.
