Right-wing hypocrisy, desperation

Out of desperation the right wing is beginning to show its hypocrisy. In recent letters one such person wanted to take away my right to free speech and another wanted to take away my right to own a gun simply because they did not like what I had to say.
Now, another right-winger is advocating armed insurrection because the Republicans lost the election. He lauds those who will take up arms to “protect and defend their families and the country from the misdirected people who would turn our Republic into a socialist totalitarian land of oppression.”
President Obama was elected legally through the democratic process established within our Constitutional Republic.
He was elected by both the popular vote and the vote of the Electoral College. No one is trying to turn America into “a socialist totalitarian land of oppression.”
It is good that even the National Republican Party is beginning to turn its back on these radical hate-mongers.
