GOP congressman supports ‘proud right-wing terrorist’
House Rep from northern California says public health option a ‘threat to democracy’

US House Representative Wally Herger, of California’s 2nd congressional district, expressed “enthusiastic approval” of a town-hall attendee who described himself as a “proud right-wing terrorist,” newspapers in northern California report.

According to the Redding Record Searchlight, an incident broke out at a town hall at Simpson University in Redding on Tuesday when Herger signaled encouragement to a 67-year-old town hall attendee, Bert Stead, who called himself a “proud right-wing terrorist.”

“Amen, God bless you,” Herger reportedly replied to the comment. “There is a great American.”

4. He is right.
Sort of.

A public option and true Health Care Reform IS a threat to our two party system of democracy.

Because once it is enacted into law, people will no longer care any more about the Republican Party than we do about, say, the Lyndon LaRouche idiots. We will have single party rule (at least until someone starts a "new" party to oppose the Democrats.).
