GOP congressional candidate Stephen Broden says violent overthrow of government is 'on the table'

Dallas Morning News

Republican congressional candidate Stephen Broden stunned his party Thursday, saying he would not rule out violent overthrow of the government if elections did not produce a change in leadership.

In a rambling exchange during a TV interview, Broden, a South Dallas pastor, said a violent uprising "is not the first option," but it is "on the table." That drew a quick denunciation from the head of the Dallas County GOP, who called the remarks "inappropriate."

Broden, a first-time candidate, is challenging veteran incumbent Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson in Dallas' heavily Democratic 30th Congressional District. Johnson's campaign declined to comment on Broden.

In the interview, Brad Watson, political reporter for WFAA-TV (Channel 8), asked Broden about a tea party event last year in Fort Worth in which he described the nation's government as tyrannical.

"We have a constitutional remedy," Broden said then. "And the Framers say if that don't work, revolution."

Watson asked if his definition of revolution included violent overthrow of the government. In a prolonged back-and-forth, Broden at first declined to explicitly address insurrection, saying the first way to deal with a repressive government is to "alter it or abolish it."

"If the government is not producing the results or has become destructive to the ends of our liberties, we have a right to get rid of that government and to get rid of it by any means necessary," Broden said, adding the nation was founded on a violent revolt against Britain's King George III.

Watson asked if violence would be in option in 2010, under the current government.

"The option is on the table. I don't think that we should remove anything from the table as it relates to our liberties and our freedoms," Broden said, without elaborating. "However, it is not the first option."


Wild Thing's comment........

If the ‘RATS steal this election too, I wouldn’t rule it out either.

No one here at this blog, but many other people have forgotten the true purpose of the bill of rights.. At least the first 10

Those rights outlined were written by revolutionaries that fought hard to throw off the yoke of trynnany... And since they understood man is not perfect... And the power corrupts... wanted to insure the people had the ability to do it again.

Stephen Broden understands that we the people are going to be very, very upset if the direction the country is going isn’t change.

Rush stated this entire quote on his show Thursday, and it bears repeating:

Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves. -Sir Winston Churchill

This video below is a speech he gave......Stephen Broden on Conservatism . He really is awesome, I sure hope he wins.

Great words by Winston Churchill.

During the Cold War, the battle cry by the left was "better red than dead". Those same people are now control Congress and the White House. We have a chance in less than two weeks to fight them without bloodshed. We all need to make sure we show up for the battle.

Remamber that the Original Tea Party, in 1773, was a harbinger of the American Revolution.

Just sayin.

His opponent, Eddie Bernice Johnson has recently been caught routing education money from her own district to her own relatives instead of deserving constituents. Eddie B. Johnson is an ablsoulte disgrace to her district and should be in prison for her crimes.

Eddie Bernice Johnson will probably be handidly reelected because as a state senator she gerrymandered the congressional district she now serves. It is a district that overwhelminly voted for obama. Hopefully Pastor Broden can find an appointed position in a revamped CONSERVATIVE Republican Party.
