This is not about the decision itself, but about some reactions to it.
Supreme Court Health Care Decision: Americans Angry About Obamacare Tweet About ‘Moving To Canada’ … I would disbelieve it, except I saw it with my own eyes on Twitter. I doubt that they came from people who thought that “Obamacare” did not go far enough and they want a REAL health care system like Canada’s.
But from the land of one step too far is this: Former GOP Spokesman: ‘Is Armed Rebellion Now Justified?’ … really? Really? Think very carefully when you start talking about an event that would cause as much upheaval as that, Mr. Davis. Your romantic notion of the happy days of coonskin caps and flintlocks vs. the hated redcoats may not be all that applicable here.
These are ridiculous stories. They remind me that the left sounded pretty ridiculous in 2000 and 2004 when we lost the presidential elections. (Though, to be fair, I don’t think any former Democratic Party spokesmen were raising the issue of armed revolution.) We Americans, in general, don’t seem to have a very good sense of perspective. All is lost when something turns out different from how we want. Maybe we should turn from hyberbole as a regular rhetorical device and just get real.
