Stop the Hate. Vote November 2.

Good advice. We are going to stop the hate in a week and a half, sir.

Dave, I acknowledge that both sides have at times gone way over board on issues. The problem is that you think only the right is guilty.

I seem to remember hate speech from some leftist hoping that "Mrs. Clarence Thomas would feed him lots of bacon and other such unhealthy foods so that he would have a heart attack."

I recall a movie being made showing the assassination of George W. Bush when he was in office and liberals defending it as free speech.

I recall recently all of the "right wing media" pundits you claim are out there having one of them claim something to the effect that they would laugh hysterically if they were to see Limbaugh having a heart attack with his eyes bulging out."

I remember another ass remarking that it is too bad Beck in going blind as he won't be able to see what he is doing to this country.

There is plenty of hate... unfortunately it is on both sides and neither is necessary or helpful to solving our problems.

You just need to acknowledge that the left is at least as guilty of this crime you paint as being only a right wing problem, my friend.

See, Paine, here is the difference. You cite "some leftist." Who knows who that it is, or if they are just some nut on the street.

The crazy, bigoted, violent rhetoric from the right is not coming from some random wingnut. It is coming from mainstream conservatives like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Rep. Louis Gohmert, Sharron Angle, and the Fox News Network.

The "both sides do it" argument is not applicable. Cindy Sheehan or some left wing whacko does not have the power and the audience of someone like Glenn Beck. There is no concerted effort on the left to "bring down" anyone, yet every single action taken by the tea party and the Republicans is to cynically undo an election where they lost.

Democrats accept when they lose and try to win next time. Republican tea baggers ignore election results they don't agree with and talk about violent overthrow of the government or utilizing "second amendment remedies" when they are not in control.

Huge difference.
