    I just received a RNC Census. It DOES NOT mention our 2A Rights as a 'platform' for the party. It had 'other' and I filled it in - twice. Anyway, I kind of told them off stating certain candidates were not correctly on certain issues - and if things did NOT change we will be Independents before long.

    Anyway, I hope you get one and can fill it out .... Oh-and they asked for money. If I only believed this would do any good.

    I have been Independent for a number of years.

    I have to agree with that...and it's only been about a year or so that I've become convinced of it. Too many dots connect them...sad, but true.

    My fear is the Republicans will fall apart as a party just when we might get an opportunity to kick the democrats out of office...

    I am still attempting to do my part to somewhat influence the party - without financing them. Unless they come around - and this last census' ??? were not promising - I think we will be leaving it soon - and the letter I attached to the census (which none of importance will probably never see) said as much.

    Yeah...if they are not going to openly stand up for our gun rights then they are not of any use to us.

    I read that as, "too many idiots connect them"... :D I don't know why. Maybe it was in the back of my mind. :p

    I think I like my interpretation better! ;) :D

    We are in a catch 22 here. While many D/Rs do support the 2A - they are not as proactive as I would like - but neither is the NRA (they make too many compromises). However, the 'I's have no power at present to move anything forward - so even if they support the 2A it does not assist us much.

    But, there is more issues at stake than just the 2A. At present the whole country - and every aspect of it - is at stake. The USA I see today is not the same one I thought I was defending so many years ago. I wish I could say I see changes that I like, but for the most part :(

    Yeah...we are on the verge of Socialism. The things i am hearing about the Commie Healthcare bill are scaring the living daylights out of me. Home visitation by government agents to counsil people on how to raise their kids... and all the other junk.

    I was listening to the radio today....i think it was Rush that was saying that the way they are going to get savings thru socialized heathcare is to let the old folks die off. Just give them a few pain pills and let whatever the illness is run its course. That's not compasionate at all... its cold hearted.
    And i assume the illegal aliens will get full healthcare over the seniors?

    Another thing i don't like the idea of is paying for abortions with my tax dollars. When paying taxes results in murder... thats when it gets really bad.
