Should they have cut off all ties to her? Did you excuse her statement as many of them did?
First of a please supply the quote where she asked someone to shoot congressmen. Last I checked, people go to jail for that, and last I checked, Angle is not in jail.

What in the world is wrong with talking about 'Second Amendment solutions?' The Amendment was put there for a reason. It wasn't written so that someone would have a chance to show off his penmanship. To the extent that you impugn Angle for using that phrase, you also impugn the Framers for including the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights. Is that what you meant to do?

Waiting for your answer, and for that quote.

They can come along for the ride, but they have to sit in the back

They want to push grandma off the cliff

Cling to their guns and religion

She's a typical white person

That's just a few. There are a lot more, so please don't try to pretend he is not negative. He is the POTUS. He should be setting the example.
Obama made some of these statements prior to his election, and yet you claim you voted for him. Why would you vote for someone who was so divisive, why do you find it offensive now and not before?

I travel all across the country for work - sadly most of the talk with violence associated with it has been from conservatives. Many times, guns were mentioned "to solve our nation's problems" - and even talks of cessation or another civil war :O I don't know about others' opinions, but I have more faith in our country.

So you advocate armed rebellion against a duly elected congress and government?

There is no quote in there about shooting congressmen. By 'take Harry Reid out' obviously she meant out of office, as she later clarified

As for your question, I will answer after you answer the one I asked: when you impugn Angle for talking about 'Second Amendment solutions,' by extension you impugn the Framers who put the 2nd Amendment in the Bill of Rights. Is that what you meant to do?

If the congress doesn't change, people are looking for a second amendment solution....

translation: you have no quote to back up your accusation, nor are you going to answer the question that I posed.
