I don't really want to start a big political debate... but it's really been bothering me.

How is what the Republican Party (or at least some of its officials) doing to oppose Obamacare different from terrorism?
(I mean, they are threatening to essentially destabilize our government if their demands aren't met. Sure, there aren't any bombs, but that isn't the only way to instill or commit acts of terror. In some ways, this kind of threat is worse...)

Please, no flaming. I get it if you disagree with me, but it's been bugging me all day, and I just wanted to put it out there. Not as an anti-Republican thing. More as a surprised observation of a citizen. I'd be equally concerned if it were the Democratic Party, or the Green Party, or an Independent one. It just seems... wrong.
