Re: “Bernie Sanders will make case for Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump tomorrow

The only reason so many in America are scared, is because that has been one of the GOP platforms for years. After 9-11, every time things got politically tight, they would put out a terrorist alert on something and raise the alert one or two levels until people stopped talking about their political issues. Now, they tell everyone the terrorists are going to be knocking on your door to behead you or blow you up or shoot you. The GOP rails against terrorists shootings, yet they help supply the guns and ammo to them by letting anyone buy guns, even those on the terrorist watch list and the mentally disabled. They are owned by the NRA, who apparently has no concern for people's safety, only the gun manufacturers they support. The republican followers seem like scared little children listening to a loud thunderstorm and somehow believing it will get them. Running around with a gun on your shoulder or strapped to your hip doesn't make you a patriot. Voting to remove the republican senators, congressmen and presidential nominee who support and feed the fear in our government, is truly patriotic. Donny Draft Dodger and the GOP have no intentions of making America safe, if they do, they will have no base to keep them going. Just sayin.
Terrorism deaths by Presidency:
-- Ronald Reagan 1981-1989 - Total deaths = 675; per month = 7.4
--George HW Bush 1989-1993 - Total death = 0
--Bill Clinton 1993-2001 - Total deaths = 444; per month = 4.6
--George W. Bush 2001-2009 - Total deaths = 3,075 plus the terror attacks in
Afghanistan and Iraq. Count civilian deaths and Bush43's numbers get to more
than 100 a month.
--Barack Obama 2009- - Total deaths = 56; per month = < 1 per month
Falling tree limbs 700+ people die per year
Odds of being killed by a terrorist attack in the US 1 in 3.5 million.
