"The tree of liberty needs to be watered"

A man at a townhall meeting carried a sign bearing this quote from Thomas Jefferson. The rest of the quote is: "with the blood of patriots."

The man was carrying a gun.

Who will the blood belong to, and don't you think this has gone a little too far considering that this a debate about HEALTH CARE??


Can't you guys see that this is the Republicans playing politics because they think that this is Obama's "Waterloo"? The only reason the right wing Fox News types are playing this up is because they think they can bring Obama down with this fight.

Protests are getting violent, the mobs are getting more and more frenzied. People are loosing their grip on reality. Don't you think this is dangerous???????

  • Maybe Just MAYBE anon...this is about MORE than health care. Maybe ...just maybe.....ALOT of Americans are sick of being ignored. Obama promised change...thats why he was voted in right?....and he is bringing in more of the same CRAP!

  • Yet, momof030404, if it's more of the SAME why then are people just NOW marching around with guns flaring?? So you are saying that this is about Obama, the people are enraged over him and not his policies because nobody was flashing guns and calling for the blood of patriots while Bush was spending us into oblivion.

  • What guns are flaring..ONE man in ONE townhall! ANd the LEFT was running around screaming THEIR fool heads of when Bush was in office!! the difference being BUSH understood that they had the freedom of speech and was grown up enough not to blame EVERYONE ELSE for problems HE inherited.

  • Look, whatever your stance is, whichever policy you support, its time to calm the f** down. It's amazing how quickly people resort to violence. And it's all ok, as long as the "right" people are in charge. Let's face it, many people refuse to support President Obama, for many reasons, and are willing to go back to the "good old days and the good old boy system" to get what they want.

  • Wow, selective memory anyone? Of course the Bush administration tried to blame the Clinton administration for things the inherited. And I don't see how you can say that Obama DIDN'T inherit problems from Bush. Still this is not my point.

    My point is that these people are ready to get violent, they're carrying guns, phoning in threats, and working themselves into a frenzy and I don't think it's about anything more than trying to nail Obama. You can't say "He's bringing our country down!" and then say "He's just doing more of the same" without admitting then that this means that Bush was also bringing the country down. And if they're doing the same thing, then why are people getting violent now? Over healthcare? Or is it something more? Are they being goaded on by the right in an effort to push Obama's "waterloo" over the edge?

  • eye roll ya know the msm media will run with a clip here and there of some really frustrated person raising their voice and expound on that.Then this guy with the gun and all they will blow it all out of proportion of course even if it wasn't that big of a deal.What do you expect the media in up BOs arse and has been...they have to keep bringing the status quo and make all republicans out to be rotten evil scum...they started it a few yrs ago and have not stopped they are not about to stop either they started it and now they have to continue or look like the farce fools they are.
