Do we really believe that the new health bill, if enacted, would be used by one party to deny members of the other party health care? Do we honestly believe that the American people would just stand by and watch our disabled killed to save tax money?
Why do we have men who are supposed to be men of God talking about killing and wishing widowhood on our president? Is this what reasonable people do? Don't these people know that sitting in on their sermons could be folks who have mental issues and may "take up the sword" of righteousness against another human being? You call this sane? Do you call this Christian?
Come on, people. Let's put on our thinking caps and get real. All of the accusations about killing the old and imperfect going back and forth would NEVER be allowed by the citizens of this country. Happily or not, most of our political wackos are armed with more assault weapons to stop any of the above nutty ideas with a well armed militia if our government lined grandma up next to a guy in a wheelchair and was gonna "off" them. Have we lost our minds?
I see people with a good education and what used to be a good head on their shoulders playing into all of this stupid rhetoric. And, the worst part of all of this is that people are believing the cr*p and threatening the life of our president. Good grief, what does that tell you about the people who espouse the out-and-out baloney and what kind of morality lies within their hearts?
We had a war take place (and continue) that was totally uncalled for via lies told to us by our government. As a result, many thousands of young people spilled their precious blood on the sand of a county that couldn't care less about democracy or fairness or honesty. Not once did I read that someone wanted to kill our former president and I never saw the horrendous anger I see now over health care, of all things.
I think it's time for some of us to stop drinking the Kool-Aid and for the rest of us to take a pill. This is America. This country stands on high moral ground, or at least it used to. However, some of our citizens are losing their minds, and their good judgment, and saying things that are inciting others with mental issues to do things and say things that no reasonable person would find normal.
Get a grip. Read. Educate yourself. Find out the facts. And then, and not until then, make a statement but make it nicely and earnestly and like you have a head on your shoulders, not like someone who is high on some drug or who is filled with partisan Kool-Aid.
I am talking about BOTH sides. I guess you could say that I am a Demican or maybe a Republicat. Both sides of all of these issues need to straighten up and fly right, as my mom used to say. They need to stop being politicians and become teachers, honest teachers. Don't spoon feed to us what you want us to hear so that you can do your political strutting in DC. We want the truth, simple and plain so we can make our own decisions NOT so you can make them for us.
