In a few short days, various “Republicans” have blatantly shat upon the Constitution and the rule of law. A few of the many examples:

Sarah “thank God she isn’t in office” Palin announced that she would violate American and International law by torturing terrorists:

“Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we’d baptize terrorists.”

The GOP government of North Carolina informed landowners that they would make it legal for driller to violate their rights and frack under their property whether the property owner approves it or not.

A gun nut terrorized a bunch of kids and their families by showing them his weapon: the cops said that his 2nd Amendment rights trumped the rights of women and children to be safe in a public park. That is true, because “Republican” lawmakers made it possible to be a terrorist and get away with it.

Add in Craven Cliven Bundy, criminal Michael Grimm, and Arkansas’s illegal voter suppression scams, and you get the picture. Then you realize that there are hundreds of GOP illegal and unconstitutional actions every week, and you have to wonder why anyone would support such a despicable and scummy group of crooks.

Yes, they are a threat, even if we don’t want to acknowledge it. For example, Kansas Governor Brownback is addressing and helping to lead a group that is planning an armed revolution against the Constitution. They want to create a Christian version of Iran’s religious Sharia law. There are thousands of them, and they are serious.

Fox News staffer General Paul Vallely is part of a planned armed military coup against our Constitutional government, and he says so straight up. His is a greater betrayal, since he swore an oath to preserve and protect the same Constitution he now plans to destroy. He has millions of viewers, and is very serious indeed.

At the low end of the spectrum, we have US Congresscritter Michael Grimm, who recently threatened to break a reporter in half…”like a boy” when the newsie was asking a question. He might get in trouble for it, but the fact that the rest of the “Republican” caucus tolerates his violent behavior shows us that the millions of Right-Wingers, Teabaggers, Fundagelicals and “Republicans” as a whole have embraced violence as an acceptable way of doing business.

Our country was founded by people of divergent views, who decided to create a system where we settled our differences with ballots instead of bullets. Once before, the Right-Wing predecessors of the modern-day Repubs launched a civil war to try and kill everyone who disagreed with them. Today, it is the Right-Wingers that make up the GOP who are threatening to kill the rest of us if they don’t get their way.

The truly scary thing is: I am not exaggerating: click those links and read for yourself. If the Repubs can’t win elections, they will use violence to destroy America as we know it, and build…well, they can’t agree on that yet. But that isn’t stopping them.

Mr. Blunt and Cranky (who may start buying more guns to protect himself from these crazy Teapublicans.)
