    Our current government is whittling away at our rights everyday. So, that is debatable.

    If you don't like the democratic process.. resort to violence.. a constitutional value.. yep

    the previous government whittled away at rights too... the current government hasn't stopped the process

    If there is a revolt.. and I do think there will be anger on both sides if repubs do shut down congress or senate... then why ever restore government at all? Both parties are failures and will try to reestablish power in the aftermath of a revolt.

    Re: Republican congressional candidate says violent overthrow of government is 'on th

    As I read this story I must have missed the part that somehow connects Obama's tyranny and despotism (which are the same thing) to President Bush.

    The Trifecta of Doom has acted with impunity as they ignored "WE THE PEOPLE" and as much as gave us all the finger and passed the phony Health Care kill Granny plan anyway.

    They have continued to spend money we don't have on projects that have been proven don't work.

    I have been waiting to hear this out in the open. For almost a year I have heard this said and have seen and been told of emails that were hinting of the possibility.

    Okay first he misquoted the Declaration of Independence which says:


    "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security."
    I want the revolution to come Nov.2nd at the ballot box, not as suggested by radical followers of Mao in the Obama administration at the point of a gun.

    Besides as I have pointed out Obama has violated his oath of office as it relates to Article 4 Section 4 of the Constitution, which says in part: "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion,"

    This is an impeachable offense and it's only one of many, and that's god enough for me.

    The Republicans are going to shut down Congress? Haven't heard that one.

    Just out of curiosity are you at all familiar with a lot of the Vietnamera protests - in particular the May 1971 huge gathering in D.C. where the Capitol steps were taken over by assorted Street people and Screwballs and where certain Democrat Congress people openly sided with the rabble

    Name five of your rights that have been taken away in the last year, or own up to your overstatement.

    I'm being forced to purchase healthcare. There's a push to ban guns. My job was taken away by executive order. There is a push to force me to buy the kind of car that the government wants me to buy. My 1st Amendment rights are under attack. My civil rights are under attack. My 4th Amendment rights are under attack.

    Our rights are being scraped away, slowly, but surely by this government.

    Which one of those are rights that have been taken away from you? I'm reading a lot of "might do", "is trying to", and "is pushing to", but "has done". People complain about all the horrible things Obama has done but in reality he hasn't successfully completed a damn thing. He's a failure even at failing.

    Conservatives seem to be the most vocal about taking away civil rights right now. I am talking mostly about ones like Rand Paul arguing against the Civil Rights Act and for segregation today. Some other conservatives even support removing or changing the 14th amendment.
