    Elections are coming.

    Mid-term elections are coming up soon. Is there a website where I can get information on how my elected officials have voted on gun issues? I just joined the NRA and I checked the ILA site but I could not find what I'm looking for there. Please let me know. Thanks.

    In Pennsylvania, definitely go with Rick Santorum for the Senate. His opponent is a far left liberal, and if the Democrats take control of the Senate, your 2A rights will be on the line. He's received the endorsement of the NRA. Check out his web page at:http://www.ricksantorum.com, and the NRA endorsement is at:http://www.ricksantorum.com/Sportsmen

    Do some real hard looks at ALL the candidates. I'm not voting along traditional lines because I don't like some of the politics involved with the traditional parties. But I found a guy who supports guns, has in the past, and says he will back any pro 2A bill that comes through....

    And guaranteed not to make a difference, except to possibly throw a close race to the other side. No offence, I have many Libertarian views myself. But it's just not a viable party. Those who were disillusioned with traditional parties, and voted for Perot, gave us 8 years of Bill Clinton, who never received 50 % of the vote.

    Usually the NRA-ILA or PVF will send a list of candidates and their "grades" A-F on 2nd amnedment issues. It should be coming in your mailbox soon. They always send one to me.

    Also, in Florida, we have Unified Sportsman of FL, headed by ex/NRA pres. Marion Hammer and they send out a list as well on local folks. Maybe there is and organization like this in your state, so do some research online.
    When you've got 'em by the balls, their hearts & minds will follow. Semper Fi.

    Amen to that. Just not Nader, though. Here in Vermont, nobody messes with guns: not Howard Dean or Madeleine Kunin (http://www.uvm.edu/~polisci/faculty/kunin_bio.htm) so, happily, that isn't a factor in choice.

    And that's exactly why it will never change. I'll always vote my principles instead of a lesser evil.

    Some people voting their conscience and some voting for a lesser evil to "make their vote count"? Sounds like if everyone had just voted their conscience there wouldn't be a problem.
