    The people who are most likely to get violent in any situation are young people. These also happen to be the people *least* likely to be against the health care reform.

    I'm not worried.

    You mean like all the craziness around the 2000 " he stole the election" from the left?

    Man this whole line is stupid. People are angry, so what? People have been bat **** crazy since the election of Clinton and both sides are taking turn.

    The only thing different here is what looks like your addiction to leftist coolaid drinking.

    Re: If Health Care Reform Passes, Will Things Get Violent?

    Why is the question "Will the Right get Violent?" I would assert that there is just as much anger and frustration on the Left over the apparent death of the Public Option. In some of the town halls people were yelling and protesting about that, and not the idea of "government run health care."

    Most likely, we will see some reform, but nothing that really means much. After that the Dems will declare a victory and go into the midterms. Right now the split over the issue is among the Democrats, all but creating three factions, none of which want to unite, and none of which can pass anything alone.

    Ha! No...

    America's young people are vaginas. They wouldn't revolt even if the government jackboot was inches away from their neck.

    Are you denying that young people are, on average, much more violent than older people?

    How do you know that, since the "government's jackboot" is firmly on the ground, and no threat to any one except possibly criminals?

    Violent does not equal brave. Any violent coward can rob an old lady or shoot a rival gang-member in a drive-by.

    It takes another kind of person to openly wage war against the US government.

    Right, no danger to anyone except those nasty ol' "criminals"...

    Now you are suggesting that waging war against the US government is "brave". Noted.

    FYI, this thread (to my understanding) wasn't about whether a Civil War was about to break out, but whether a bunch of disgruntled conservatives would go balistic and start doing crazy violent things if health reform passed. I answered accordingly.

    Health care in the USA sucks, with regards to insurance and how they screw you over, at least. Doctors in the USA are really good, especially for surgery, but they are next to clueless about alternative procedures, they simply prescribe anti-biotics or whatever the pharm complanies are dishing out as the people serve as an evolving test lab. Universal health care is a really good idea, as a Republican who lives in a nation with Universal health care now, I see the error of the US system more clearly. People need to step back and see it for what it can and will be, not for some socialist conspiracy...

    Brave and foolish are often times the same thing, young Padawan.

    Anyway, my point was although young people may be more prone to violence this does not necessarily mean they are more prone to revolt, as the latter would require some form of testicular fortitude instead of the generalized ability to mow down toddlers with a Mac-10.

    FYI, this thread (to my understanding) wasn't about whether a Civil War was about to break out, but whether a bunch of disgruntled conservatives would go balistic and start doing crazy violent things if health reform passed. I answered accordingly.
    Uhhhh, good job?
