“I agree with your sentiment, by she won the primary with 54% of the vote. We are always going to have those at the fringe but I think our problem is they have public support for their agendas. I find that she has that much support very disturbing.”

“Maybe you should look at the fact that Democrats are destroying this country. That probably plays a lot into her being elected.”

“The primary is limited to like mined voters.”

“It is very, very disturbing. It is scary disturbing. Illinois is NOT a red state. I have to believe it was in the boonies.”

“She got 54% of Republicans. It was a primary. These days only 28% of the American voters admit to being Republicans and she got a little over half of their votes, so she's speaking for about 14% of the population.
I tried to calculate it a few different ways, and I figure anywhere from 9-14% of total American voters actually support the Tea Party.”

“Well, thankfully this is a solidly democratic district we are talking about. Its cook PVI is D+15 and has been held by the democrats since 1949. I do not think we are in any danger of her winning the seat thankfully.
Actually having radicals like this run on the GOP ticket in solid democratic districts is probably a good thing since it damages their image in other less solid districts!”

“Hey, maybe it is time that the east coast succeeds from the union! Let the red states support their own. They are the ones that are the takers.”
“?????????????? He was not armed. You dont get to kill someone beause you THINK HE MIGHT have a weapon.”

“No, you get to kill someone who is trying to kill you, regardless of if they have a weapon or not. If Mike Tyson comes after you, without a weapon, i suggest you either run, or shoot him, because he can kill you without one. There is no duty to prove someone had a weapon. This is completely irrelevant to my original post and once again off topic, as you don't comprehend what i was originally saying, and that is that walmart will only sell the guns that Sean was complaining about, to people who pass a background check, and they wont' be handguns, because walmart doesn't sell handguns...”
“No, you don't seem to understand. Selling guns to people is dangerous. Because ??? People are all different, just because this fine upstanding citizen was LEAGALLY alowed to own and carry a leathal weapon, he has no idea what it mean to use the power over life or death. These people carry so many lives in thier belt (or in this case the glove box) with NO thought of the cosequences. The young man died because he insulted anothers ego. So gun owner gets a pass becasues he was legal to carry ? NO, not even close. Our RIGHTS to life over ride his right to take them.”

“If you are assaulting someone and they are armed, they have a right to defend themselves. If you are beating them to the point of them fearing for their life, they have the right to shoot you. See how that works?
"Our RIGHTS to life over ride his right to take them." Not if you are assaulting someone and they are scared for their life. don't like it? Complain to your lawmakers, because CCW is legal in all 50 states now. Maybe you better think twice before assaulting someone huh?
You still don't comprehend what i was saying, and it had nothing to do with what you are rambling on about...”
“Absolutley !!! If he had not been a "law abiding non felon" the other person would be alive today !! NO, wait uuummm...........”

“Apparently you don't understand what i was saying... Sean said walmart, will sell more guns, i stated that those guns they sell will be to law abiding non felons. aka, people who can pass a background check. Them selling guns is a non issue. Understand now?”
“How tone deaf can he be ? A white politician speaking to white audience about how to "fix" the black man ?? Are you kidding me ? How can he not see the how disrespectful that is ? Can he not understand how people react to such condescension ? What part of equal does he not understand ?”
“The Unions priced themselves out of the market ? Do you think for one second that this country can compete with countries that has pay for workers of 5 dollars a day ? 2 or 3 dollars an hour ? Union or no Union the jobs were going away because of GREED. The corporations saw a way to make even more from their products by paying slave wages. They made money here under American labor, they just choose to have more for themselves. Mr. President, put some teeth back in our Labor Laws and lets get back to earning a LIVING WAGE !”

“25/hour for a factory worker to tighten bolts caused them to go under. Why do you think so many companies have moved to right to work states?”

“You are right but the President doesn't have the ability to put teath back into the labor laws that both parities but primarily the GOP has been erroding for decades. The president can't even get the seats on the NLRB filled.”
“Maybe you misread my post. No where did it say it was excused just that it has mitigating circumstances. Something non union workers don't have the luxury of having in their work place. You must certainly are a true humanitarian, being so perfect.”
