With the notoriously conservative Tea Party movement gaining steam, is it time to take the ‘United’ out of ‘United States’? ... Their arguments have the potential to divide the country along titanic lines not seen since the bloody days of the Civil War.

Think I’m exaggerating here? The Tea Party movement is an incredibly dangerous concept, fuelled by the usual gushes of sycophantic support from the conservative news media (here’s looking at you, Fox).
I get it: Conservatives bad. Liberals good.
Can you imagine the potential for chaos if some of these ‘protesters’ decide to exercise the Second Amendment and bring their weapons to these rallies? There’s a thin line between peaceful protest and bloodthirsty patriotic fervor, especially if those protesting are used to being on the side of the mighty status quo.
Of course. Jim Bob, Billy Joe, and Cooter are going to exercise their Second Amendment rights in camouflage and with assault weapons.
President Obama was elected democratically, according to the doctrines set forth by the Founding Fathers.
And of course former President Bush wasn’t elected democratically.
