Prepare yourself, here comes the violence

Do you see the protests in the UK yesterday? The UK government took an axe to their budget. They are firing a massive number of public employees and hiking fees and taxes across the board. One of the outcomes was an almost tripling in university tuition. It went from something like $5 K a year, all the way up to $14 K. Stunned students got violent.

Prepare yourself. That violence will be commonplace in the United States within the next couple of years. It's one thing to want austerity, walk into the voting booth, and pull the Republican lever. It's another to find out your social security is getting chopped, your medicare capped, your tax bill dramatically hiked. But its coming. And you're going to be shocked at how sever your pocketbook will get hit. You'll get mad. And you'll hit the streets in protest. It will get out of hand. Rocks will fly. Windows will break. Cars will overturn. And we'll be well on our way to another revolution in our country.

Watch. Learn. It's going to happen.

You'll have no one to blame but yourself, and our Republican Senator Richard Burr. The Republican philosophy of nothing but tax cuts, tax cuts, and more tax cuts brought us to this point. And you were dumb enough to drink the kool-aide and egg on our Republican Party in acting irresponsibly.

North Carolina deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
