    Fomenting OTHERS to make their point for them, violently. There may be some precedent for legally addressing this type of  rhetoric, if Canada will have them. This time we may have to ship them to Libertarian Paradise; Somalia.

      I don't think this speech and the rhetoric should be ignored even though the messenger is ...how can I say this....quirky.

      Can you imagine if an unseated Democrat issued a Call to Arms?

      Fortunately, the press is covering this; however, not many have shared, in their coverage, the use by Walsh his introductory use of the phrase CALL TO ARMS.

      History teaches over and over again, that when too many are left struggling for jobs/survival, they are easily co-opted into violent mob mentality.

      The Angry Mob has been a tool of despots over and over again.

      It's difficult to be happy knowing so many suffer. We must unite.

        No government health care. No government regulation. No government parks, no government schools, armed militias patrolling the streets.

        It's the perfect test lab for conservatism.
