We have a mental illness problem, Kurt.   It's not the laws or the leadership, people are sick.

Oh, that's only for guns.  Sorry.

I think we're both old enough to remember the 1960s. There were actual revolutionaries dedicated to the destruction of US society and they were young enough and dedicated enough to try. They failed. That society survived and has continued to evolve.

A tiny minority that believes daffy things (like the soixante huitards) can still be pretty destructive, but it takes a lot more than that to be more than a nuisance.

But they're electing congressmen! The '60s radicals elected congressmen too. Some of them are still there. I ain't panicking.

Before my time (to be able to remember. However one can always read about it.)

Likely because in those (leftist) historical cases there was ample push back/infiltration/suppression from establishment institutions to make sure they couldn't succeed. Half a century of Red Scare had passed already.

White reactionaries might never be deemed as dangerous to the status quo.

(Polls 101)

Let's put this in perspective: in 2001 Gallup asked a similar number of people about the legitimacy of George W. Bush's election. 17% responded that he stole the election—similar to the results of this survey. They didn't ask them if they thought violence was justified as a response; maybe they didn't need the click-bait views. You might have missed this, but we didn't have a revolution then either.

No. They didn't ask 21 million people and get that answer, they asked 1,070 and extrapolated. We have to trust that their sample was representative and that the conclusions (advocating violence) are supported by the questions asked and the answers interpreted.

But let's say they got all that right. Let's say they are accurately representing the opinions of the 1,070 people they asked. The fraction of respondents who they so characterized is 8%. 86 people out of 1,070.

8% is not a trivial number. It would be the nucleus of a revolution...if they meant it. They clearly don't.

Are they rioting? Bombing government buildings? Setting up roadblocks and seizing towns and building barricades? Despite all the hyperventilating in the press, no.. It's enough of an audience to pander to for a TV show or two. It's enough to retweet some memes. If they actually vote it might be enough to sway some elections, but a lot of them aren't even that motivated.

Estimates vary about how many were involved in the capitol riot. By some counts 2,000 people entered the building—of whom almost half have been charged with crimes. That was almost 2 years ago. Are they still poking cops with flag poles? Are they still breaking windows in the capitol?

It's infuriating how often headlines based on any sort of surveys or studies are so definitive about their extrapolations.  They rarely start with "A projected..." or An estimated..."

Of course, the Great State of Texas could use some help figuring out their power grid, amirite?

Said it before and no backing down: I lurve my Chevy Volt (not Bolt). Battery holds about 50 miles, which is easily covering my day to day. I just plug it in at night and the on board knows to wait until the rates go down so it's ready every morning. PGE, meanwhile, gives me a special EV rate - so that's nice.
And, the tank hold about 7 gallons so when the battery runs out, it switches over to being a Prius-like hybrid with 40+ MPG for long trips - never any range anxiety.

Later, many years from now, all electric will be something we can all get behind. I'm sure all the gas stations and their companies aren't about to let their real estate or brand name go to waste. With the right infrastructure, we'll all be pulling over to get electrons instead of gas at our nearby Exxon. And we won't be reliant on pumping out the leftovers from dead dinosaurs.
Speaking of dinosaurs, folks who think there's a long term future to burning petroleum products are the good little obedient ones, still giving their dollars to Big Oil for the time being like it's patriotic to submit...

Be careful out there...

The Tesla brand is attracting more and more Republicans

One big advantage for Republicans... you can use the roads and avoid those pesky taxes collected with every gallon of gas.

So tell me how many cities have been torn up and burned down by Trump followers ?  

I thought it was done by Trump haters not followers ...
