No, not really, but with the tragedies/atrocities in Arizona (the sad events are of course both), a lot of bits, ink, and decibels are being spilt regarding the question of why we fight so. In general, not only are the targets of most ire incorrect (sorry, liberals, but the murderer wasn't a Tea Partier), but they also get the more general cause incorrect--sorry, but talking about "targeting" people for removal from office is not equivalent to targeting them for brutal assaults and murder. If it were, any sporting event would quickly become a bloodbath.
The real issue, in my perhaps not humble enough opinion (and Walter Williams'), is that we have become a nation of thieves. That is, a strong majority believes that they have the right, through government, to confiscate the property of their fellow citizens for their own purposes. Then, having departed from spirit, if not the letter, of Exodus 20:15, is it any surprise that we, per James 4:1-4, fight and kill because we covet, but do not ask God or work for what we want?
I do not have any solutions besides prayer--pray that people would see the folly of their ways, and remember that the time lag from a respected society and a Holocaust can be less than two decades.
