Political Differences

It isn't the right time for political bickering. Here is how it begins, even at the wrong time.

Representative Rodney Davis R-Illinois appeared at the US Capitol Rotunda in his baseball attire fresh from the crime scene to give an emotionally charged interview. He introduced the phrase, "political rhetorical terrorist act." The shooter is described as a progressive liberal who posted rants on the Facebook. There is no defense or rationale for anyone of any political point of view to break the law to commit violence.

Concerning is when a congressional representative confuses political rhetoric with being a terrorist act. Political disagreement and debate is a healthy way to pursue and resolve our differences.

Using guns to shoot people is a crime.

Political rhetoric is a freedom and not a crime.

The trend of the Republican-led government is to attempt to stifle freedom of speech and to obstruct fact-finding about the truth.

The crisis that many Republicans are not comprehending is that President Trump appears to have broken the law and is obstructing justice. Those actions are a threat to democracy in America. It undermines the rule of law. That debate must happen in the courts where evidence can be presented. The evidence must come from an unfettered investigation. Therein lies the political problem.

Politics is obstructing justice, and that is a crime. Having an illegal President who may cohort with the enemy is an act of treason and possibly terrorism.

  1. Outrage over the shooting of a Congressman, aids, and Capitol Police is appropriate. What is inappropriate is the absence of action and sustained outraged of the loss of children by a gunman at Sandyhook School. The NRA bought the Congressman, and now guns are turning on them too. Guns are a problem and America is most uncivil in how it is dealing with gun crimes.
