LaPierre obviously has been sharing some of our nightmares! It is scary to contemplate.

So how many are content with just complaining and voting against her and how many are hot-footing to their local political organization and volunteering? (By the way, there is a more important election coming up soon. The Dems are so convinced that they'll take back the House that they're talking about a legislative blitz as soon as they do).

I don't WANT to get flamed but would this be bad? A GOP Presidency with a Dem controlled Congress EQUALS Gridlock! Not bad! Now, the GOP would lose their "control" and the "right" would bitch and moan BUT:

IMHO:


Has the GOP lost their way? Tom DeLay indicted? How many others are going to be sucked into the Abramoff scandal? Do they deserve to be in office? They've been acting like neighborhood bullies now for a long time, and even thou I detest Hillary and THAT gang, I am quite sick of the GOP behavior as well.

I love gridlock! Beats the hell out of the far left force feeding crap down our throats, and beats the hell out of the right force feeding crap down our throats.

Neither do what is right for this country often enough - they are only doing what's right for their "party". I find it disgusting, appalling, and think we ought to fire them all after two terms (except Senators and Presidents, which can have two).

:soapbox:

It almost doesn't matter who is in the White House. The states have made so many advances individually that the Dems will play hell getting any national laws invoked and enforced without violating the 10th Amendment and setting up a USSC battle where pro-gun conservatives finally have a decent say in the matter. EVEN IF they take over the Congress in 2006, Say both houses (very long shot--the incumbents are at risk from BOTH parties) the Republicans were in the minority for over forty years. They know how to play in that sandbox to keep the problem legislation to a minimum.

With respect to ExSoldier, but I must disagree

POTUS creates policy and makes appointments to represent this country's interest domestically and abroad.

He is the Commander-in-chief of the armed forces. He is the Attorney General's boss who is the chief law enforcement officer in this country. He is the boss over the directors of intelligence and covert operations agencies operating here and overseas.

He is the boss to the Secretary of the Treasury, who has control over the Internal Revenue Service.

Think of all the wacko, leftist, pinko, socialist and legislative Federal Judges appointed by Slick Willy. Never mind cabinet officers, diplomats and the massive bureaucracy he had control over.

It very much does matter who is in the White House......just as it matters who is in every other Federal and State office.

well, the so-called "conservatives" have no one to blame but themselves.

all you have to do is look at what they've done to fiscal restraint and the constitution.

everyday there's another story about spending, spying, indictments,scandals, etc.

I'm not sure there's much of a difference between Rep and Dem now adays. There is, however, a big difference in individual people. I really think we need to overlook the affiliated party and vote for a specific individual.

Of course I also think gridlock is best. Keep the self-serving tyrants for passing too many overly restrictive and intrusive laws.

You Get The Government You Deserve

I said ALMOST! Dang.... I'm pointing out that in a WORST case scenario all is not lost! :rant: :aargh4:

I am very active locally, for all level offices. I work the phones for my candidates, I drive folks to the polls. I bust my tail. It's an example for my students and as I ALWAYS tell them, if you don't at least vote you really have no moral grounds to complain about the results. Even if you're too young to vote or can't by citizenship, you can volunteer and be a grunt. Every little bit helps. But they never listen, I think. lol But voting is the minimum! You get the government you deserve and the level of judgment rests on the vote.

Both parties suck right now. The pinko lefties want to take away our rights. They are pansies when it comes to terrorism. The Republicans are burying their heads in the sand over immigration. They also could give a $**t less if you and I are paying $4.00 or more at the pumps, because most are being "lobbied" by the rich oil industry. If we don't get some true leadership and solutions quickly, then you can just watch the walls crumble. History has a funny way of repeating itself......if we are not careful we will fall in much the same way that the Romans did. There is so much greed and corruption. Social ills like the Crystal Meth scourge that is destroying small town America. We are being invaded by illegals in what is being called "The Quiet Revolution." We are so in debt that I wonder just how much it is going to take for the economic bubble to burst. The spin doctors in Washington tell us the economy is fine, but when I turn on the news or talk to a friend, all I hear about is job cuts. Heck, my wife just lost her job. People, it is time to wake up! We are being lied to by both sides! We all need, myself included, to jump on our representatives hides and tell them we are not going to take this anymore.

I'm getting off my soapbox now. Please don't flame me, but I am just another p!$$ed off, overworked, underpaid, overtaxed, underappreciated, middle class guy trying to take care of his family.
