46. And you have left out John and Robert Kennedy

Medgar Evers and Martin Luther King and many more.

Yes. The killers are insane. They carry their guns and shoot alone. But when they repeatedly and almost always aim at Democrats, at reformers of the "left," or supposedly of the "left," there has to be some reason.

We all hear that reason screamed out on talk radio hour after hour every day. The right-wing extremists have dredged a trench right through our society and from there they launch their verbal attacks on those who dare to dream of a better society, a better world.

The Rush Limbaughs of the world do not shoot the guns. They inspire many (and I am not claiming that it is all) of those who do.

When was the last time some lone gunman shot a right-wing hero? I think it has been a long, long time. Maybe Reagan. And that was one case out of so many, many Democrats and leaders on the left.

The right-wing hate propaganda has to stop. And the people perpetrating it have to take responsibility and stop it themselves.

A party that produces a vice-president who "accidentally" shoots a hunting partner in the face and then dares to show his own face in public? What kind of people are they?
