This is troubling that politics today is getting people both unhinged and there is a chance that even more restrictions will be put in place by the government.  Speculation anyone from Tea Party connected or Mexican drug dealers could of been behind this.

While it's troubling and sad for the woman and her family.

  I have to say that this is the direction politics are going to be headed if politicians keep pushing their own agendas and neglecting the very people they are meant to represent.  For far too long politicians are pushing their own agenda once they get into office with no concern over their citizens to no consquence. 

 

Maybe something like this will open



It was the Tea Party!



 

        

Interesting, I read she was behind the health care Bill and that could be the motive...But yeah it is all speculation at the moment..

I truly hope this was not politically motivated and just some crazy nut looking for attention.  Either way, I can only imagine the enhanced "security measures" we could be subjected too in the near future.



Yes, the Tea Party would really want to kill a pro-gun, anti-illegal immigration Blue Dog Democrat.

It's pretty sickening how so many people fly off all half-cocked in their desperation to make political hay out of such a horrible incident.



Something has to be done about conservative terrorism in America.  First Muslims and now Republicans are joining the act.  Sadly, given both their lack of morals and low intelligence, I can't say that I am suprised.

Sorry, but the prime suspect WAS a member of a right wing group...Free America or Republic...or something like that.  We still need to get the facts, but needless to say, there is going to be alot of ducking for cover for the rightwing over this, and probably some counter blaming for all these policies that drive people to extremism.  What I find fascinating is how at the height of the madness under Bush, the Liberals didn't resort to the behavior of terrorist and other extremists, who we are using our military to destroy in OTHER people's countries, while allowing it to flourish and blossom here.  We are actually hunting radicals in other countries who haven’t fired a shot or attempted to blow up anything, but Limbaugh and Foxnews thrives…the hypocrisy just makes the rest of the world laugh…and cry to some degree…

The problem in America is the politicians have essentially distanced themselves from the common person.  This is no longer a country where we are all equal.  Politicians are constantly and consistently above the average person in all aspects of life and this plays out on a daily basis.   

The problem with this,  is that they actually start voting and making decisions based on this twisted world view.  With little insight into their actual constituents.
