Maybe We Really Can’t All Just Get Along

You can add this to you're comment.. The Declaration of Independence stated "When a long train of abuses and usurpation's pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce [a people] under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their DUTY, to throw off such Government," And also, that's why we have this.. "A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the People to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

During the Los Angeles riots of 1992, Rodney King famously asked, “Can’t we all just get along?” The answer should be an easy and unequivocal “yes,” but it seems less and less likely these days.

King was speaking in term of race, but the same could be said of political ideology. Liberals, conservatives and every other point on the political spectrum used to co-exist fairly easily (with the exception of left-wing anarchists who don’t get along with anyone). But these days détente has given way to anger and open hostility.

Some, not all, people have become less civil to those...
