Members of the House will now get up to $10,000 to upgrade their home security as experts warn such threats endanger the health of US democracy
It should be, without saying that violence of any nature should never be condoned and especially violence to anyone doing their job of work.
However, these days violence appears to be coming a ‘norm’, when it should never be. This appears to be occurring in all countries, be it left or right wing factions and everyone should be working against this trend continuing, especially those in some area of leadership and power of influence.
But, it appears America, to some extent, is an instigator of violence, with some persons in legislator areas, both past and present, actively encouraging violence to persons who don’t represent the same views of them without any apparent fear of arrest and prosecution. This only creates the impression to those whose reactions to be violent are their prime actions to do so. This has to be wrong completely and if allowed to continue will certainly lead to escalation of violent actions leading to eventual disintegration of Law and Order.
Yes, there is freedom of speech, but not to the extent of creating violence to others.
America holds the belief that it is the ‘land of the free’, but it should be free within restrictions so that the human rights of all concerned are respected and not just for the most powerful.
Democracy and Liberty for everyone not just a stated few.
