    When i read this i thought what has happened to this country?, can it get any lower? an online poll whether the POTUS should be killed.

    Someone started this digusting poll on facebook, imo its the result of the Hate speech propigated by the Rt wing hate mongers. I want my country back, i remember a country that had no place for this kind of obcene behavior.

    Secret Service investigating Facebook poll on Obama - CNN.com

    CNN) -- The social networking site Facebook on Monday pulled a third-party application that allows users to create polls after a site member built a poll asking if President Obama should be killed.


    There are more than 350,000 applications on Facebook. The company says it disables any that violate its terms.

    The U.S. Secret Service, the agency assigned to protect the president, has launched an investigation, agency spokesman James Mackin said.

    "As is usually the case, our vigilant users reported it to us first," Facebook spokesman Barry Schnitt told CNN. "The USSS [Secret Service] sent us an e-mail late this morning PDT asking us to take it down. At that point, it had already been removed, and we let them know."

    Saw that, seems more and more advocacy for some type of violent overthrow of Government... that would really lead to health care reform...

    It'll be fairly entertaining to watch people try to justify assisanation, won't it? Especially the good Christian ones who are supposed to believe in all of The Commandments - the 6th one included.

    Last I heard they had not ammended that one to include, "except for presidents."

    Glad the Secret Service is investigating. Could the poll be a lefty baiting? We have heard a lot from the left since the election about the PResident being assassinated due to his race.


    I would note that over the weekend there was more violence from the left at the G20 meeting than at al the townhall's this summer and the 9-12 march. The violence at the townhall meetings was perpetrated by Obama supporters

    One of the worst thing to happen to this country, the insertion of religion into politics.

    So i guess using this logic this means that its OK to run this to have a poll on killing the POTUS. You used the same logic to support the attack on Obamas daughter for wearing a t-shirt with a "peace sign" on it. Since Letterman said something about Palins daughter it was OK to go after Obamas

    People who have religion should follow the guidelines of that religion regardless of the political climate.

    Whatever God they believe in gives no special dispensation for killing politicians.

    While I agree they should not be allowed to let their religious beliefs interfer with the manner in which a country's run I do believe that they, themselves, on the basis of calling themselves members of any given religious organization, are obligated to their religion, their God and themselves, to follow the tenents of said religion.

    Absolutly, what i have had a hard time understanding is if someone proclaims to be a follower of Christ how they can be so intolerent of others when one Christs messages was one of tolerance "love they neighbor as you would love yourself"

    Making the association between anarchists at G-20 and tea parties are not quite the same.. the anarchists stand alone and are not claimed by the Democrats... there were no guns there either or signs saying they would bring them next time.

    THE VIOLENCE AT THE TOWN MEETINGS WAS PERPETRATED BY OBAMA SUPPORTERS.. Chris Boughton and the vipers comes to mind... what a joke that statement is.

    're getting wierd.

    Yes it could have been a "lefty-baiting".

    In a related story, a single supernatural event could have formed the Grand Canyon.

    Stop being stupid.

    Bad thread to get involved in, if your not a Fawning Obama Groupie...............

    No Further Comment

    I would like to add though, the Proper Free American way to dump a politician is at the polls "the vote" Messiah Obama and his loyal groupies are in for quite a shock come 2012 because it is becoming very clear that He Has No Idea Of What The Hell he Is Doing, he will be another One Term Jimmy Carter, God Help America in meantime.

    Almost nearly as exciting as watching all of you guys fawn outrage over this, when not 1-2 years ago you could daily troll the "lefty" websites and find "Kill Bush" and "Kill Cheney" postings. Perhaps you forgot? Easy to do because it happened so often if just sorted faded into the background noise after awhile.

    It's a dumb facebook poll and it should never got posted and I hope they nail the guy to the wall. I don't ever think those jokes are appropriate. But the typical one-sided outrage is just as ridiculous.

    Your country and mine, is long gone pal. It set sail close to a handfull of decades ago, and it hasn't looked back. Welcome to the MTV, drive thru, myspace, appologist, excusist, illegally invaded, welfare, hand out, bailout, war mongering, redistributive, $4 trillion dollar a year, lemon factory of an education system USA. Did I forget anything?


    As for the poll, it's horrible. It's the internet though, so people shouldn't be surprised by it.

    I'm a Realist we are usually considered Racist by the Fawning A$s Kissing Do-Gooder because we deal in reality not Political Correctness.

    As I said, the American Way to rid the country of a bad politician is At The Polls, "Vote Them Out"

    If Obama is voted out in 2012 watch closely at who starts the war in the streets.

    I think he person who started this poll should be put away for LIFE. And, NO, that's not too severe punishment for threatening the life of our president. Shoot the guy/woman as far as I'm concerned.
