Where does the violence come from and why?

Conservatives get the label of violent while Progressives (as defined by the Occupy movement) are violent spoiled children who want what other people have. 
In the first third of the Book of Mormon it describes people as being in slavery/bondage when the sovereign took 50% or more of their earnings and valuables, flocks, etc.   What percentage do we have to be "taxed" before we feel we are enslaved?  Many people under those circumstances chose to flee.  There were a few who were humble enough just to ask God to help them carry their burdens as they worked to enrich the government.

Abraham Lincoln

"We, the people are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts - not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow men, men who pervert the constitution." - Abraham Lincoln

Treaties...Shall Be the supreme Law of the Land--Beware of Treaties!

This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

US Constitution, Article 6

The Enemy Within

A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable for he is known and carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself... for the traitor appears no traitor: He speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their faces and their garments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the souls of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is to be less feared. — Cicero
