It seems to me that the right is trying to intimidate people that disagree. And if intimidating doesn't work, what's next?
    You mean like the liberals in South Central LA?

    Maybe people did and the press didn't freak out about it.

We have people bringing guns to political events (that aren't even gun related), and going on about the blood of tyrants. When I see how much hatred and anger is on the far right at this moment, it makes me scared that if they don't get their way they might turn violent. We're talking about violence on a scale larger than a few nuts here and there. Does anyone else see the same thing happening?
    This is just more of the drivel coming out of the dems trying to shut down the opposition. It is all about the "fear" of the liberals because they know that if they pass HC it will be without the consent of the majority of the population, and it will be taking health care from the seniors and others that need the coverage and giving it to the illegal aliens and young people who don't need it. And increasing the deficit which is already out of control. The entire concept is ABSURD. It's also from the preconception that conservatives are a bunch of gun toting, bible thumping red necks. Yeah, like Krauthammer and Crystal. A better question is since all opposition to Obama is being labeled racist will the black panthers start attacking people or burning down cities. It's happened before.

    If there is revolution it will be evident in 2010 when all of the incumbents are voted out and in 2012 when the same will happen again. There might also be an upswelling of independent candidates who now will actually have a good chance of being elected. Last time I voted independent was for Perot and it got me Clinton. If you voted for Paul last election you might feel you made a mistake. We had a poll here "what political party are you" and almost 60% claimed "other". Pass HC and let's see what happens.

    You folks just don't get it. If you get much crazier than you all ready are, we'll just begin ignoring you. Violence not required.

    If and when things get violent. It won't be because health care reform passes.

    It will be because people refuse to come to grips and admit they lost an election thru every fault of their own and lost it fair and square in tough fought campaign. To a black man.

    Firstly, the part about it being taken from seniors and being given to illegals is pure lies. Second, about young people not needing it... a good friend of mine who is 26 got run over by a bus a while back. You tell me she doesn't need medical coverage. She's still dealing with health problems from that.


    And increasing the deficit which is already out of control. The entire concept is ABSURD.
    The concept that everyone should be able to get medical care when they need it? So completely absurd.


    It's also from the preconception that conservatives are a bunch of gun toting, bible thumping red necks. Yeah, like Krauthammer and Crystal. A better question is since all opposition to Obama is being labeled racist will the black panthers start attacking people or burning down cities. It's happened before.
    I just wish that Krauthammer and Crystal were the voice of the Republican Party. Instead its the like of Limbaugh and Beck. And not all opposition to Obama is being labeled racist. You are inflating a straw man that has no bearing on reality. If you wish to discuss the true state of things be my guess, but don't float into wishful thinking la la land here.

    If there is revolution it will be evident in 2010 when all of the incumbents are voted out and in 2012 when the same will happen again.

    You have to remember that DP is not a fair representation of the political makeup of america. It's as far from that you can get.

    Things already are violent, with the government initiating the aggression.

    The question is - will people finally try to defend themselves?

    The answer - probably not, because the strength of government is overwhelming, and running away is a much better option.

    Why do you think it is that no industrialized nation has moved of its own volition towards a libertarian state?

    First of all, that isn't true - the more statist / socialist political ideas don't win every single election, so when they lose it could be considered a victory of the libertarian ideas, whether fully understood by the voters or not. Economic freedom is slowly on the rise all over the world!

    And second - statists tend to win because they're more willing to lie, steal, cheat, brainwash, torture, and kill tens of millions of people, or do whatever else is necessary to gain and expand their power. Well, pardon me for not being willing to sink to their level...
