Should Congress Worry About Political Violence?

A new Rasmussen poll finds that only 6 percent of voters believe Congress is doing a good job. A sickly, measly 6 percent. That's not a rejection of one party or the other; it's a rejection of the institution itself. Abraham Lincoln warned that a disillusioned public could easily turn violent. What's next?

And this is a national item, not specific to Fairfax. ok. I'll bite.

In Fairfax County, some areas could see trouble from kick ass first types or wanna be thugs, but not as much as most anywhere in the country. Fairfax City is heavily staffed with reasonably well paid Police, and a very wealthy place it is too. Nope, not gonna happen there.

Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit or even DC, sure. Not here.

I am sure no one will have to tell you. *If* everything starts to melt we will all know. Again, it is not very likely to be in ffx city itself, though parts of the county and country, yes.

So, i am thinking about the Congress part of Op's question. In that context, yes, they ought to be. If they do not focus on the real problems, hungry people do extreme things.

As we live here, most of us are not really hungry. I say this as a collective, not individual cases. Also, Lamb Center not withstanding.

Unlike those Mediteranean countries, we have two parties sharing power. A lot of the anger gets vented at the opposition. You must be watching Gerald Celente videos. He predicted chaos in the streets a year or two ago and keeps pushing out his forecast. As bad as it may look, problems have been pushed out and could get worse.

Goldman Sachs is predicting another 8 to 11 million foreclosures.
11 million foreclosures would be around 20% of mortgages.

Yes, there should be violent acts upon all politicians.

It just won't happen because of politics. Now, I can see it happening if there is another large terrorist attack, of even related to racial/ethnic conflict. The 60's would have been a perfect time for these types of attacks and it did not happen then. People get mad, but we are still considered a "1st World" Nation.
