"Taxes are a joke. Regardless of what a political candidate "promises," they will increase. More taxes are always the answer to government mismanagement. They mess up. We suffer. Taxes are reaching cataclysmic levels, with no slowdown in sight ... Is a Civil War Imminent? Do we have to shed blood to reform the current system? I hope it doesn't come to that. But it might."


And this-

"Go ahead, take everything I own; take my dignity. Feel good as you grow fat and rich at my expense; sucking my tax dollars and property."


Also this-

"The government is afraid of the guns people have because they have to have control of the people at all times. Once you take away the guns, you can do anything to the people. You give them an inch and they take a mile. I believe we are slowly turning into a socialist government. The government is continually growing bigger and more powerful, and the people need to prepare to defend themselves against government control."


And, finally this-

"Those who betray or subvert the Constitution are guilty of sedition and/or treason, are domestic enemies and should and will be punished accordingly.
It also stands to reason that anyone who sympathizes with the enemy or gives aid or comfort to said enemy is likewise guilty. I have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and I will. And I will because not only did I swear to, but I believe in what it stands for in every bit of my heart, soul and being.

I know in my heart that I am right in my struggle, Steve. I have come to peace with myself, my God and my cause. Blood will flow in the streets, Steve. Good vs. Evil. Free Men vs. Socialist Wannabe Slaves. Pray it is not your blood, my friend."


Just a nut? Someone to be written off? Here's a hint, the families of 168 people might disagree.

This teabagging crap is for real. We laugh and ignore it at our own peril. We laughed at them impeaching our President over a blowjob. I remember looking at GWB sometime in 1999 and saying, "no way America is dumb enough to elect this guy." And I remember people actually believing Donald Rumsfield when he said, "Six days, six weeks, I doubt six months."

I'm not one to jump on the concern wagon, and, while admittedly with scant success, I do try to avoid being overly gloomy. But people, I hear dog whistles, I hear calls for lone wolves and I fear the stupid is going to win again.

1. They are scarily determined, no matter how crazy their ideas seem
Kicked and recorded. We really do have to pay attention to them.

Thanks for posting this, horrifying as the implications are. It's a needed reality check.
