The Republican Seeds of Hate are Rising from the Spring Soil

For far too long the Republican Party and its hate groups have been sowing the seeds of hate in this country. We have seen it during election years on full display with no desire on their part to calm the angry crowds that make hate the bases for their everyday life.

Just last year someone left a hate sign in my driveway on national night out when I and my child were walking home from a neighborhood event. Now those same hate groups are turning on our elected officials in the U.S. Congress.

When republican elected officials cannot control their own behavior in public and show a little common respect to elected members of our party it is little wonder that their followers feel free to attack. With people like Rush and Palin encouraging hate and violence on the radio and television everyday of the week what hope do we have of peaceful discord between the parties.

It is past time for the Republican Party to offer a hand in friendship to the democrats. It is past time for our two parties to start to work together for the common good of the American voting public. The democrats have offered repeatedly to work with their counter parts. Now is the time for republican leadership to offer their hand in friendship and work with our party.

If hate speech and violent behavior continues it will only lead to unnecessary harm of someone who should be shown respect for their desire to help the American people through public service.

Reports are that no less than ten elected officials of the House of Representatives have be threatened with harm or death and that cannot be accepted by either party.
