Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), was assaulted in his Kentucky home by someone described as an "acquaintance" by authorities. It is unknown whether the Senator's attack was politically motivated. But this event serves as just another example of where we are in the United States. It would have to take a willing suspension of disbelief to not believe politics was, in part, a motivating factor. With the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA), and others earlier this year, it is unquestionable that the embrace of caustic politics in the US will eventually lead to deaths.
