Letter: Eliminating the opposition

Republican senatorial candidate Sharron Angle said earlier this year: "It's time for 2nd Amendment remedies." Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann wants her constituents to be "armed and dangerous," and is calling for a "revolution." Twelve Republican congressmen don't believe the president is a U.S. citizen, therefore, Barack Obama is not really our president, and their beliefs have spawned the "birther" movement.

Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck and the rest of the Fox News militia spew their hatred for President Obama and the Democrats, and preach their bigotry and fear-mongering to their listeners and viewers on a daily basis - everything from "death panels" to the idea that our president is a Hitler-wanna-be.

And we have to wonder why Democratic Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona and 17 other people were shot in a Safeway parking lot? Six of those people have already died, including a federal judge and a 9-year-old girl, and Rep. Giffords is still fighting for her life.

Isn't it wonderful that Arizona has an "open carry" gun law?

Keep it up, Republicans - if you keep spreading your hatred and bigotry and brainwash enough people, one by one the Democrats can be eliminated. Is that what you're hoping for?
