So an attack on a form of government is worse than an attack on a citizen of that government.  Interesting.

I always thought all Americans were of equal value.  I guess you believe some lives are more valuable than others.  Pity.

So you actually believe that the life of, oh let's say, Hillary Clinton has the same value as that of Donald Trump.

I'll keep that in mind for future discussions.

Yes I do.  Sorry that you think Trump's is more valuable than your family members.

Nice try. Won't fly.

My family members are more valuable to me than the POTUS.

The POTUS is more valuable to the country than my family members.

I'm sorry your mind is not agile enough to understand the difference.

No where did I or anyone else say "more valuable to the country".  You and others said that a congressman's life was more important than an ordinary citizen since your family members are ordinary citizens that would mean that you believe a congressman's life is more important than your family members.  Sorry if that isn't what you meant but that is what you said.

congressman matters but the person attacked in op doesn't matter  but then you say all lives matter so which is it - all or just some

Where is your condemnation of the bike lock professor who split open the head of a conservative?  

But back to the OP, where are the facts?  Neo-Nazi?  So he is a socialist?  OK, but where is the proof or a shred of evidence that this guy was a socialist?  Some guy hit some guy.  Literally, everything else in this "report" is made up with no documentation.  Maybe you should be a little upset with Calamari dragging you down another rabbit hole sullying your credibility.

I'm against violence against ALL people by anyone.  Some apparently think that violence against a congressman is worse than violence against an ordinary citizen and that is what I was disputing.

Wrong again.

What I said was that an attack on an elected official is an indirect attack on our form of government and that an attack on an ordinary citizen is not.

Again, sorry you can't grasp the concept.

To which I replied:  So an attack on a form of government is worse than an attack on a citizen of that government. 

That is why I find interesting that you think a FORM OF GOVERNMENT is more important than a citizen of that government.

What do you think would happen to this country if one citizen was taken away vs what would happen to this country  if the government was taken away?

I seriously doubt that.  I would bet most Americans would say neither is worth much.  Most Americans felt the choices sucked badly before the election and I doubt much has changed now.   Only blind partisans liked either of those two.

Then we largely agree.  
While I agree that murder is murder, no matter the victim and morally speaking there is no difference, I differ in that in a drug deal gone bad that results in a murder, is a little different than trying to decapitate a democracy.  The assassination of Lincoln affected everyone, while a robbery-murder occurring on the other side of DC, being equally evil, did not change history.

LOL You're probably right! One's a knucklehead and the other's a knothead,... so what's the difference. True, our choices sucked,... but I'm betting there's a lot of buyers' remorse floating in the air right about now. Maybe I should have said, given a choice between protecting Orange Roughy and a free case of Corona Extra,... I'd opt for the beer!

I can agree to this since you because of the bolded part of your first sentence. Too often people seem to forget.
