    Exactly and the white hot spot light of media attention this week, may be enough to give them pause. Nothing like a little sunlight.

    That's what I've been thinking lately, with all these militia factions, it is like they want to disavow the rule of law and take our country into a situation like that in Somalia or even similar to Afghanistan.

    Elections have consequences. They need to shake off the loss and work within the system like Democrats did after 2004.

    Not to mention that this 'group' (not an individual acting out of his basement), that is SO EXTREME in his opinions (writing letters to congressmen telling them they will lose a vote... like that's never happened).

    Oh it's SOO SCARY that governors have been warned to watch out for : THE LETTER!!!

    They even brought in x-ray scanners and the whole deal.... come on.

    Really?? You REALLY think this is as simple as a matter of 'republicans that are upset cause they lost'... this isn't kindergarden.

    I'll spare you the rant I was going to add to this.

    She didn't HAVE to say republicans, because she said 'like the democrats did (back when republicans were in power)'

    Thanks!!!!
    Based on your grasp of the previous point... I was doing myself the favor.

    I find it hilarious that perhaps the most creative conspiracy theorist on the forum (9/11, granite slabs, Obama's Civil War army) is able to so casually dismiss actual threats to elected representatives. Yes, when you say "resign in three days or you will be removed" that is a threat, there need be no mention of violence. This is why the FBI is involved, and why these people (yes they are people, not a guy in a basement) need to be watched. And we will also be watching your posts for entertainment value as you dream up even more creative liberal plots against the world as we know it.

    Uhh... Maybe I am retarded. But I think a threat is "Leave office or we will kill you". Sending someone a letter saying they are going to be removed from office is nothing close to a hostile threat. You are just seeing things the way you want to.

    The FBI and DHS said there do not appear to be credible or immediate threats of violence attached to the letters.

    The group behind the letters has a "Restore America Plan" that calls for the removal of any governor who fails to comply, the intelligence note said.
    The letters were not handwritten but did have some handwritten signatures, Reedy said Thursday.
    So now mass printed messages calling for removal of office singed by those who agree are "death threats". Maybe now I am a little more able to comprehend how small factions tricked the masses through fear in NAZI germany. Peace = terrorism. Gotcha.

    Re: Extremist group demands governors resign

    If these are actual threats, the state law enforcement agency in each of these states will address it, in partnership with federal law enforcement.

    People can demand whatever they want, but without the means to enforce those demands, they're like a hollow drum.
