The Politics of Violence

In much of the world, running for office as an opposition candidate can be dangerous. We aren’t talking about totalitarian countries, but ones that claim to be democracies. For anyone encouraging violence or threats or violence as part of the political system in the US, look around. Is this where you want to go, because this is where we are heading? You can easily find much worse examples than Mexico. I also heard the tally is nearly 100 assassinated.
