I've already pointed out that current political rhetoric had nothing to do with the Tucson shooting. I've pointed out that the Left is just as responsible as the Right, if not more.
But in terms of actual political anger (let us move beyond Tucson), why are people actually angry?
Is it because Glenn Beck says taxes are too high, politicians are irresponsible and public employees have it easy?
Or is it because their taxes went up 67% last night, raised by politicians who just lost an election in order to pay for public employee expenses?
Who would you be angry at: the guy saying you are being robbed or the one actually robbing you?
If the government acts irresponsibly, it is not the fault of dissenters that people become discontent.
