Arizona anvil?

God, this is going to sound terrible. But hasn’t American political life been conducted in a violent manner since 1776? Weren’t duals conducted between political rivals over perceived wrong doings? Perhaps one expects more civil behaviour in the 21 st. century. Is there something at the heart of the American psyche (if there is such a thing) that brings out an anger, a rage, that leads to the terrible events that we have seen in recent days? You always have a fringe element in every culture/country who are explosive. But doesn’t the American middle have to look at itself and ask what kind of political discussion they expect from their politicians?
