This is pretty much the way it's going to be going forward...more and more.
As Kennedy said, those who make peaceful change impossible, make violent change inevitable.
And please don't interpret this as a) sympathy with the rabid, mostly racist anti-Obama fanatics, or b) an endorsement of violence as the way to go. I'm just calling it as I see it. The Forbes 400 and their two-party monopoly, corporate state controlled media, and the Electoral College system mean our votes don't really count for anything. The only "alternatives" permitted by the system are voting for
a) less freedom, more disparity of wealth and bigger government, or
b) bigger government, less freedom, and more disparity of wealth
So, until we restore true choice to our system, and create viable "c" and "d" choices that aren't just taking the words of "a" and "b" and shuffling them around, people who believe in a "c" and "d" will, increasingly, turn to violence as the only method they have to change anything. Sad, but true.
