6. I was just reading a thread in general discussion about it
Edited on Sat Aug-28-04 01:37 PM by quinnox
I don't think it was a right action by the Dem to punch the guy from what I read. It sounds like the Repub was getting in the guy's face but it wasn't enough to warrant a violent response from the other guy.

If this is the standard where it is acceptable to punch people out then at every political rally there would be rioting going on.

It's a little disturbing to see people trying to agitate others for some kind of thoughts of civil war if the Dems don't win. I have noticed more of this type of talk at DU past few months. Democracy is based on voting to determine the winner, not by violence. If Kerry loses then he loses. Same way with Bush, if he loses. They can still shake hands afterwards. The United States is too important of a country to have another civil war over political differences.
