The simple fact that they are trying to vilify American veterans and characterize them as a danger to the government is just despicable.

This does remind me of the fear-mongering days of the 90s when movies like Arlington Road attempted to portray conservative Christian families as terrorists.

One commentator described these political trends as a pendulum which swings from one side to the other. This is probably the most extreme level of influence that liberals have had on the government itself and will most likely just result in an even greater swing back to conservatism in a few years.
I have to believe that if there are extreme liberal whackos there are going to be person's occupying the opposite end of the spectrum. I think all religions and political groups have extremists.
I find myself becoming more and more conservative in my old age. perhaps it's the influence of this forum;)
