    A few weeks ago, I was watching a show about Woodstock and they mentioned the RFK assassination. I couldn't remember any actual assassinations in my lifetime. I remember the attempts on Scalise and Giffords. However, in thinking about it, had those attempts been successful, I don't think much would've changed--neither one was well known or very influential.

    That got me thinking.... who would be someone, if they were assassinated, would cause the most change in this country? And what kind of change do you think it will be? Do you think there's anyone who could change the tone of discourse in this country and bring back political civility?

    edited to add: I don't guess it has to be necessarily be an assassination. It could simply be death. But assassination does add a certain angle to it.

    I don't know if I would even type that word on the Internet these days. It may block you from buying ammo.

    Showing my age....I remember the JFK assassination. I was in the 2nd grade, and they let school out early and we went home and watched the coverage on our old black and white TV. Even at that age I could see the significance of the event.

    Same here. Watched the whole thing. Ever saw the Oswald shooting live on TV, I was the only one in the living room with the TV when it happened and when they started showing replays everybody was in the room with me.

    The Leftists are Slobbering at the mouth like Mad Dogs, hoping someone will assassinate President Trump.
    They've been talking it up in hopes it happens,.

    If that were to happen, I think "Hell Will Be Coming to Breakfast" Democrats had better find a rock to hide under.
