Lubbock County Judge Tom Head has used his office to issue a veiled threat of civil war in the United States if the current President Barack Obama is re-elected. On Thursday, August 23, 2012 (as reported by FOX News, Lubbock) Judge Head said regarding a possible Obama re-election, "We are talking civil unrest, civil disobedience, possibly, possibly civil war, OK? Now what happens? What happens? Now I'm not talking just talking riots here and there. I'm talking Lexington, Concord, take up arms, get rid of the dictator. ..And in this political climate and financial climate, what is the very worst thing that can happen right now? Obama gets back in the White House. No. God forbid."

These comments, spoken on behalf of the power of the office as County Judge of a major county in Texas, are seen to possibly incite violence and potentially cause great harm to the United States. Judge Head must be held accountable and the officials of Lubbock County must also be held accountable for any further actions occurring from these statements.

      Those this far from reality need not be Judges.

      Inciting violence is a criminal act which peace loving people can not just ignore! This conduct calls for corrective action.

      Such bias cannot be tolerated in the judicial system.

      We need to make a stand against this type of activity. It is not even veiled rhetoric, it is open sedition and expression of intent to violently subvert the democratic process. All Americans across the political spectrum should recognize this for what it is and condemn it, or we are doomed as a society.

      This kind of incendiary speech and language is the cause of violence in our country. This local judge needs to be deprived of his legal position to make such statements.
