What do we do know? Look at the situations that we are in objectively. Is there an issue with the health care reform. Is there truly one? Was their truly an issue with any birth certificates? Or are there bills such as the new food codex passing: www.youtube.com...
You are being swept up in the hysteria of the meaningless as the true issues that limit your freedoms and physically harm you are being passed by right in front of your eyes.
Call your congressman. Do not threaten his life. Threaten his job.
IMO heathcare...yes. Birth Certificate? No...that is a false front issue. CODEX? A huge issue that will affect us all!
And I could not agree more with your last sentence...
Call your congressman. Do not threaten his life. Threaten his job!

Protesting - You're doing it wrong!
Why are people (and when I say "People", I of course mean middle-class, white folks) protesting adequate and fair medical treatment for all. And while your government is handing over Trillions of your $ to already wealthy corporations?
Protest about your representatives refusing to answer questions.
Protest about your government controlling and infiltrating your lives to the point of a nanny state.
Protest about your nation supporting Israel's murder of innocent people in Gaza.
Protest about your military holding people without charge and torturing them.
There are a million and one things for America to be mad about. Healthcare for all is not a justifiable reason.
If America becomes socially unstable because of this one issue, while you've done absolutely nothing in the face of far more despicable things, you should be embarrassed, and even ashamed.
Kenneth Gladney, a 38-year-old conservative activist from St. Louis, said he was attacked by some of those arrested as he handed out yellow flags with “Don't tread on me” printed on them. He spoke to the Post-Dispatch from the emergency room of the St. John's Mercy Medical Center, where he said he was waiting to be treated for injuries to his knee, back, elbow, shoulder and face that he suffered in the attack. Gladney, who is black, said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack started.
“It just seems there's no freedom of speech without being attacked,” he said.
