There is without question much pent up anger with politicians in America who have risked our financial integrity for ideological gain, or no gain as it were. When congressional representatives have taken essential benefits from needy citizens and raised the specter of uncertainty that strikes at the heart of citizens’ viability, that is a grave concern.
The mechanisms available to citizens include:
1. Vote them out of office at the earliest opportunity.
2. Insist that leaders rein them in.
3. Organize and file charges ii there is merit.
4. Seek impeachment.
One thing that you cannot do is to threaten politicians or any other citizen with personal injury or harm.
Congressional representatives who have voted against essential services and who have participated in shutting down government with extortion may well deserve prosecution of some kind. Yet, the bar for accomplishing is very high and probably out of reach.
For citizens who feel they have been harmed by congressional action, they should seek assistance from organizations that represent their interests such as veterans. Don’t take matters into your own hands.
As for Ted Cruz, many Americans would like to send him home to Canada, but they probably don’t want him back.

Law enforcement officials are investigating a threat against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who was vaulted into national prominence with his push to defund ObamaCare.
A person identifying himself as Troy Gilmore Jr., posted on Twitter Friday morning: “Take down Ted Cruz, at his home” and listed Cruz’s home address in Houston.
“What goes around comes around CRUZ!!” the person wrote.
The author of the threat uses the Twitter handle @ArmyVet54 and identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Army and Navy.”
