    I saw a political ad here in FL from the guy running against the career politician for the GOP for Governor. He made an excellent point and I agree:

    "Politicians are like diapers: THEY NEED CHANGING FREQUENTLY"

    I'm sick and tired of RINOs (Republicans In Name Only -- code for Liberal) and LIBERALS in the Dem party running this country into the ground. We need to retake the entire Congress (Senate & House) and stop the socialistic agenda this administration is fostering. That's bigger than just the 2nd Amendment. Reid is still the point man on the whole shootin' match for the Senate. Take him out as the first step in the bigger war. I think it's going to be a watershed of an election. Total wipeout for the Dems. Bigger than 1994. IF we do our part and fight this right.

    And if that doesn't happen? Then you have most likely given control of the senate to one of the most anti gun/military people in the current government, and due to his politcial base, isn't likely to go anywhere for quite sometime.
    Now, we must all fear evil men. But there is another kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good men.

    No guts no glory. We've got to be proactive. Ask the confederacy and the South Vietnamese how successful it is to fight defensive war and expect victory?

    EVEN IF we don't take the Senate, we'll more than likely flip the House (all spending MUST originate in the House) and there are many ways to stop legislation from being funded and thereby stop enforcement. Also we're more than likely to come close enough (even if we fail to retake by comfortable majority) to still stop the agenda, especially since they're gonna be too busy defending against Health Care repeal until 2012.

    Here's HOPING:

    Ex-Spy Is a Long Shot to Oust Schumer
    NY Times ^ | July 1, 2010 | DAVID M. HALBFINGER
    Posted on July 2, 2010 8:55:51 PM EDT by neverdem

    The last time Gary Berntsen went after such a formidable adversary in hostile territory, he was commanding a small band of fellow spies and commandos in pursuit of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan after 9/11. After helping drive the Taliban from power, they tracked him to the mountains of Tora Bora, only to see him slip away.

    His current assignment could make that one look easy.

    Mr. Berntsen, a Long Island-bred C.I.A. operative who retired in 2005, decided earlier this year to try to serve his country in a new, and not exactly clandestine, way: by running for office.

    While he spent his career influencing the politics of countries in the Middle East, South Asia and Latin America, he has next to no experience here at home. He did not even vote in the last presidential election.

    But in his maiden campaign, Mr. Berntsen, 52, a Republican, has set out to bag the biggest game in New York: Charles E. Schumer, the state’s senior senator, whose fund-raising...

    --snip--

    The previously unknown Mr. Berntsen’s fervent support from Tea Party groups, for whom Mr. Schumer is a symbol of everything wrong with government, won him the Republican Party’s designation as its preferred candidate this month. He faces a primary against Jay Townsend, a veteran political consultant from Cornwall-on-Hudson.

    So far Mr. Berntsen has Republican leaders in New York and Washington cheering him on, but making no commitments of financial support. Indeed, in taking on Mr. Schumer, Mr. Berntsen would head into battle without anything like the firepower and air support that emboldened him as a spy. In Afghanistan, he wrote, he lugged a Rubbermaid trunk containing $8 million in government-issued $100 bills, which he used to buy trucks and warlords’ support. So far Mr. Berntsen’s campaign has reported raising less than $40,000...

    The confederates were anti-American secessionsists, defiant against that of the US Constitution, the President and that of the human decency as well as basic human rights as to support and continue their own agrarian lifestyle, culture and economic machine as at the back and blood of slave labor.

    I personally would not ask the confederacy a darn thing about nothing, that is relevant to freedom, liberty and justice for all men being born equal.

    The Confederates had much in the way of guts, and they gave them too as in the name of glory and infamy.

    God made men, Samuel Colt made them equal.

    I quoted the Confederacy solely from the strategic point of view and the historical. I am a social studies teacher and although I haven't taught HISTORY (favoring American Government for many years now) in quite awhile I DO remember THAT THOSE WHO IGNORE HISTORY ARE DOOMED TO REPEAT IT.... something you would do well to remember yourself. So, gimme a break.

    However, I am a southerner, born and bred from a very long line of southerners all the way back to the 1600s. I draw my family tree directly to George Washington (thru Martha) and also to Stonewall Jackson. My great great uncle was his first cousin. I am very proud of both those associations. Not of the culture that was slavery, but there is so much more to the culture of the south than slavery and I'm not ashamed of that, not one bit.

    The NRA's biggest problem is Sharron Angle, her insane views, her waffling platform and her general inabilty to speak. I'm not saying support Reid. But Angle is a tin foil hat wearing idiot who has a deer in the headlights look that would send Nevada back to the Stone Age.
    Maybe an indepedant with a mind or a write in vote?

    Sorry, too late. What you see is what you get. Harry Reid or the GOP candidate, picked by a majority of the GOP voters who actually voted. No matter what you think of those folks in the Tea Party, you've gotta admit that they are INVOLVED and they are focused and their candidate won the day. Now I think it behooves folks in Nevada to rally behind the new comer and get that RAT, Reid, away from the government cheese we call our taxes! Politicians, particularly career politicians are like diapers: They need to be frequently changed. I hear that CHANGE is a good thing. Let's keep it going! That's exactly why I'm supporting Rick Scott for FL Governor over career politician McCollum.

    I said nothing of the tea party. I only said Sharron Angle has insane views, waffles her platform, generally has a inabilty to speak. IMO, she's a really bad candidate, which isn't worth much since either us can't vote in Nevada.

    All of those qualities are much better than the Harry Reid option.

    Doesn't matter that YOU didn't mention the "tea party" she is known as the "Tea Party" candidate.

    As the NRA missive confirmed, Harry Reid has been a very effective supporter of gun rights. It's extremely important to have those on both sides of the aisle, especially with the seniority Reid has. Endorsing Reid is the right call for the NRA, in the true interest of gun rights, rather than other agendas.
    Cheers,

    Then you have most likely given control of the senate to one of the most anti gun/military people in the current government, and due to his politcial base, isn't likely to go anywhere for quite sometime.
    So you would keep a crooked politician in office who will bankrupt the country because he is more pro-gun today.
    He's already proven he can't be trusted, and he will support an Obama agenda, no matter what.

    You don't like Sharon Angle, kick her out next time, before she's entrenched in the lobbyist money.

    Just stop and look where the democrats have taken the country.
