It’s funny to look back in time and determine where people stood on issues 20, 50 or 200 years ago and then compare the modern day stances on the same issues.  Societal changes, shifting demographics and changes in technology and the ramifications of these changes rippling through society as a whole, sometimes leave me surprised and confused.

Let’s talk about the latest battleground forming in our nation today; The Second Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

10d1a_t607
Until just a few short years ago, guns in society were rarely considered.  It was just assumed that most people had guns and knew how to use them.  I grew up with guns in our home.  It was no big deal.  My father taught my brother and me how to properly use a gun, care for it, and ABOVE ALL, respect it.  I personally took a 12 gauge shotgun to school for use in a school play and actually shot it (with the metal shot removed from the shells of course) during the play!  Guess what?  No one was surprised and no one even checked my shells to verify they were empty.  In that era, even adults placed faith in 17 year olds that they were being responsible with weapons.

Until 40 or 50 years ago, guns were a primary means in putting food on tables in a majority of homes in America.  Guns were tools that were used responsibly, for the most part.  Once again, they were no big deal.

Now, it seems, guns ARE a big deal.  Why?  Because some crackpot idiot decided to STEAL guns and massacre 20 children and 8 adults in the most recent act of craziness.  It’s not JUST Newtown, CT.  Its Columbine, Jonesboro, Aurora, etc., as well as Tyrifjorden Buskerud, Norway, Baku, Azerbaijan and Dunblane, Scotland.  If you think crazy is limited to America, then you are nuts as well.

You might think that this is the reason that gun control is all you hear about on the news these days.  Well, it’s not.  I have news for you.  These “crazies” would have killed people with a knife, ball bat or a damn rock if that is what they could get their hand on.  The reason that our Federal Government is so up in arms over guns is simple….control…

I hear people say that we need to ban “military STYLE assault rifles”. Why?  Because they LOOK like an automatic weapon.  Guess what?  They are NOT automatic weapons.  Honestly, you can do as much damage with your Dad’s 30.06 deer rifle as you can with a Bushmaster XM 15 rifle.  It might take you an extra 3-4 seconds to change out the clips since they hold only 5 rounds, but I can carry 20 to 30 full clips with no problem whatsoever.  All this talk about limiting clips to 10 rounds or less is no more than political scare tactics.

It’s about time that our elected officials start talking about the REAL meaning of the 2nd Amendment and quit all the beating around the bush.  They act like stating a fact is treason.  The simple truth is that the 2nd Amendment authorizes We The People to protect ourselves and our country from a tyrannical government…end of story.  It does not mention or even allude to hunting or self-defense from other citizens.  You see, our Founding Fathers were not worried about hunting….that was a daily chore.  They were not worried about self-defense from other citizens…they all had guns and most of them were responsible and trustworthy citizens.  Our Founding Fathers were fighting a war of independence from a TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT!  The BRITISH!  GET IT PEOPLE??????  These men, in their infinite wisdom, saw fit to delineate a physical object (the ONLY physical object listed in our Bill of Rights) as the ONE tangible object REQUIRED to overthrow a tyrannical government!  ARMS……

Now, if you consider the 2nd Amendment in this light, what makes you think that our Founding Fathers would even consider allowing the People to be armed with weapons that do military style weapon cartoonnot even come close to matching the weaponry that the government possesses?  They would not.  That would be like saying, “Well, the British have flintlock rifles, so we need to fight our battles against them with the bow and arrow”!  Now, exactly how much sense does that make?  None whatsoever!  That would be a totally stupid statement to make, and even an idiot should realize it.

Our Federal Government has NO right under the Constitution to limit the people’s access to weapons and has even less of a mandate to know WHO possess these arms!

It is impossible to overthrow a tyrannical government with sub-standard weapons.  It is also foolish of the People to inform the same government as to who owns weapons that could be used in overthrowing it.

Does this now make sense to everyone?

Alas, probably not…  I understand that Progressives will, for some reason, disagree with even the simplest of arguments.  Just as they cannot usually see that lower tax rates generate MORE taxes in the long run, they will refuse to see that our Founders foresaw that, at some point, the People MAY have to resort to putting its own Federal government back in line.

If, for any reason, you don’t believe the obvious, PLEASE consult an expert.  I can tell you who the experts are that can give you first-hand information regarding banning guns and documented gun ownership…

Gun Control 1

Ask a Russian…ask a Chinese…ask a North Korean…maybe a German!

In the grand scheme, it should not be a question of WHAT kind of arms I can own.  The answer should be anything I can afford.

I’m finished now….  I have to get back to work to make the next payment on my Tomahawk Missile.

My cousin asked the question, “Why do people say that voting Democratic is unChristian.” The following is my answer:

Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but here is the real truth of our current situation. Both parties have allowed their extreme elements to take control of the party platforms and they have redefined each. We, lay people, have sat back and allowed this to happen. We had

no specific issue that we wanted moved forward, for instance gay marriage, so we ignore politics until it affects us.

In regard to the current Democratic party, it is NOT the party of our grandparents. This is NOT the Democratic party YOU KNEW. This new Democratic party has a national platform which was adopted at the DNC convention that took out “God” and inserted “progressive” (i.e. socialistic) theory. Don’t just believe me, read it for yourself. I think you will be surprised to find the extent of socialist agenda. Unless we actually look into these things ourselves, we will not know what is there – we cannot allow the media to vet this for us as they are biased. Again, look at the character of the people who are in the Obama Administration and the DNC. All of them have ties to communism, socialism, etc. They don’t hide it!

What the Obama Administration has done to the Catholic church in particular has been terrible. They have put in place regulations and rules which NOW will prohibit Catholic charities to practice their faith in their (non-government funded) hospitals, missions, schools, etc. The Church is faced with performing abortions and funding other government-required aspects of Obamacare or close their doors. That leaves a giant opening for a government entity with no reference to God to come in and take over. It will only be soon that this expands to other Christian based churches and facilities. Don’t be fooled, this is a war on Christianity.

We can no longer sit back and think we have no business in our governance. It is our sacred duty to secure this country from the, excuse the phrase – idiots, who simply do not understand the repercussions of certain actions. What is frightening to me is that our country is seeing a paradigm shift in its demographic where more people are uneducated or undereducated in basic ideals. They have grown up expecting everything to be easy, given to them, they seem to think they “deserve” things. This new generation of voters seem to think the idealized socialism is the answer – welcome to the folly of every college student. Reality comes around and slaps you in the face when you realize that – just because we are all created equal, that means equal in the eyes of God, not equal in our skills, talents, even our physical capabilities. That line also does not mean that life is fair, contrary life is never fair. It is our ability to deal with the chaos and trials that make us who we are as individuals, then as a country.

In regard to the Republicans, they have had such poor leadership that they have no definition. Their hard-line right wing tactics have as of lately given way to a mushy middle-of-the-road that no one is happy with. It is those folks who fall between the parties that are the real core of America – the Libertarians – they are defined by the following: pro-military, pro-health INSURANCE REFORM (not health CARE reform) – this must include tort reform which trial lawyers fight against; they are primarily Judeo-Christian, they believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, however, they can bend to allow civil unions for gay couples; they want the government OUT OF OUR BEDROOMS, LIVING ROOMS AND KITCHENS; they believe in freedom OF religion NOT FROM religion; they believe in helping themselves, yet also helping their neighbors who are in trouble; they would not choose an abortion for themselves, however they believe that the government has NO RIGHT to tell a woman what she can and cannot do in this regard – most of the folks I’ve interviewed say they think it is between a woman, her clergy, her family, her doctor. They believe that “the pursuit of happiness” should not be limited. As adults they believe that marijuana should be legalized, possibly everything else, in order to put RESPONSIBILITY ONTO THE INDIVIDUAL FOR HIS/HER ACTIONS. If we must legislate the behaviour modifications of our citizens, we are NOT GROWING strong citizens who can learn to make good choices.

I realize this sounds very terse, however, as the bible says, the poor will always be with us and it is our duty to help them to help themselves. However, I take that to be a metaphor for others, too: i.e. idiots. In the natural world, survival of the fittest takes care of the quality of its inhabitants.

So, after my long epistle…in today’s political landscape a vote for Democrats is, unfortunately, a vote for a non-Christian agenda. Once elected, even a stand up guy is forced to play ball with the powers that be in order to be effective for his state in any way. In essence, they must ALL make a deal with the devil or they get NO funds, contracts, industry, etc. for their states. Politics is dirty, unfair, Machiavellian…it is survival of the fittest

In a rare letter sent from Pope Benedict XVI to the American Catholic Bishops, his Holiness calls for American Catholics to wake up and recognize the threats to our religious freedoms which are being whittled away by the Obama Administration.  Below is an excerpt from the address:

“… it is imperative that the entire Catholic community in the United States come to realize the grave threats to the Church’s public moral witness presented by a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres. The seriousness of these threats needs to be clearly appreciated at every level of ecclesial life. Of particular concern are certain attempts being made to limit that most cherished of American freedoms, the freedom of religion. Many of you have pointed out that concerted efforts have been made to deny the right of conscientious objection on the part of Catholic individuals and institutions with regard to cooperation in intrinsically evil practices. Others have spoken to me of a worrying tendency to reduce religious freedom to mere freedom of worship without guarantees of respect for freedom of conscience.”

“Here once more we see the need for an engaged, articulate and well-formed CATHOLIC LAITY endowed with a strong critical sense vis-à-vis the dominant culture and with the courage to counter a reductive secularism which would delegitimize the Church’s participation in public debate about the issues which are determining the FUTURE OF AMERICAN SOCIETY.”

This week, the DNC was forced to revisit the 2012 version of their political platform.  Behind closed doors, language that had been included in the party’s platform for years was purposely omitted.  The language in contest was not merely semantics, but basic tenets that Democratic voters have always espoused:  “God” and “Jerusalem as the Capitol of Israel.”

As delegates learned of the changes made to their message to America, many were irate that no consideration was made to ask the delegates what THEY wanted.  (Frankly, this back-room tactic has been the modus operandi of the Obama Administration and the Socialist-minded liberals who now have control of the Democrat Party.)  So, the DNC had to publicly amend the already-published platform.

When the vote came to the floor, the delegates were surprised to discover just how vehement their neighbors felt about God.  The old-time Democrats, the Dixie-crats, voted to include; the Progressive Dems, the ultra-liberals voted to omit.  Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall now?

Obama Admin To Join United Nations Gun Ban

Posted: August 24, 2012 by April Watkins in Obama, Progressives / Socialists
Tags: ,

The following is an email that I received today from the National Association of Gun Rights.  Those of you who follow gun rights issues know that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has – in effect – signed onto a UN Treaty that would confiscate our firearms and create a national registry to track all gun owners.

All treaties are supposed to be approved by the Senate; however, recent history has proven to us that the Obama Administration does not work within the defined check-and-balance system in which our government was designed to function.  By use of Presidential orders, Obama has bypassed both the Senate and House on many issues;  this practice should be limited at best, banned if possible.

Regarding the United Nations Small Arms Treaty, President Obama has already moved to put limits on gun ownership and began this national registry through one of his “infamous” Executive Orders, which completely bypassed Congressional approval or even notification.

THIS IS A DIRECT VIOLATION OF OUR SECOND AMENDMENT.  We cannot stand by and allow Clinton and Obama to take away our CONSTITUTION RIGHT to own “arms.”  The REGISTRY will allow the government to know how many firearms you have and how much ammunition you keep, or buy.  This defeats the intent of our Founding Fathers who, purposely put in writing our right to have weapons with which to defend ourselves against a tyrannical government…because that’s what the American Revolution was all about!

The other irritant in the gun ban issue is, quite frankly…Jim and Sarah Brady.  While I have sympathy for the fact that Jim Brady was shot along with President Reagan back in 1981, I cannot condone their continuing campaign to ban all guns.

  • First, guns don’t kill, PEOPLE do. 
  • Secondly, as Reagan’s adviser and Press Secretary, Brady knew that he would be a prime target for any lunatic assassin.  If he wasn’t willing to acknowledge this and knowingly take a risk, as all of our politicians must do, he shouldn’t have placed himself in in such a highly visible role.  I’m NOT saying that his shooting was his fault; I am saying that he and his wife have placed blame on the weapon and campaigned against IT, rather than focusing their energies toward the problem…a deranged psychotic.  I could more easily understand if they had set up a foundation to deal with the mentally ill.

The ramifications of any gun ban would be the end of our country, because only the criminals would have guns.  Law abiding citizens – those who would naively go and register all of their guns and ammo – would be stripped of all their abilities to defend themselves, their families and their property.  Just ask the ranch owners on our Mexican border how they would feel if they had no way to defend themselves against illegal aliens – thieves and criminals – that cross the border on their land.

I urge you to join me along with NAGR and the NRA to keep our Constitutional rights in tact and, possibly more important, to keep America sovereign and not ruled by the United Nations in this on-going push for a One-World government by the Progressive Liberals who now control the White House.  This is critical for our future; and that is…Why It Matters.

The following is text from an email from NAGR:

Dear April,

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and the international anti-gun gang are almost giddy.  The UN Programme Against Small Arms begins meeting in New York City this Monday, August 27th. Unlike the “Small Arms Treaty,” the Programme doesn’t require a vote in Congress.

It’s the same radical anti-gun policy, only this can be directly implemented on U.S. citizens. Some of it is already being enforced.

Hillary’s State Department recently bragged that the corrupt “Fast & Furious” and “Gunwalker” operations were implementations of the Programme. They almost sounded proud of the murder and mayhem caused by Eric Holder’s Justice Department.

In the same report, Hillary also revealed that Obama’s ongoing efforts to destroy over one million historic M1 Garands, M1 Carbines and 1911 Colt .45’s is driven by the UN Programme’s global gun grab scheme.

“I just want you to know that we are working on it [gun control],” President Obama promised Sarah Brady in a recent meeting. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”

As part of the UN Programme implementation during “Fast & Furious,” Obama created a de facto firearms registry for every semi-auto rifle purchased anywhere near the border. He did it via executive fiat, without any action from Congress whatsoever.

This is EXACTLY the kind of “process” they are going through “under the radar,” only now they want to take it nationwide. Firearms registration is just one of the many anti-gun schemes that is on the table next week at the Programme in New York. And in the wake of the Colorado and Wisconsin tragedies, the left-leaning media is screaming for more.

Last month, NAGR’s 1.4 million members and supporters played a key role in stalling the UN “Small Arms Treaty.”

Despite Hillary’s vocal support for global gun control, she and her State Department bureaucrats were forced to back off the treaty negotiations in New York. Much to their chagrin, the conference ended without a completed treaty.

Thanks to your hard work, gun owners dodged a bullet.

But Hillary and the petty tyrants at the UN already had the next shot at the UN Gun Ban in the chamber and ready to fire.
The “Small Arms Treaty” is just one of the many tools they have in their gun-grabbing tool box. Next up is the UN Programme Against Small Arms, and it’s is a HUGE opportunity to push the UN Gun Ban.

The Programme will meet from August 27th through September 7th at UN Headquarters in New York City to push the very same anti-gun agenda:

Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;

  • CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);
  • BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
  • Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

And the real danger is that after our temporary victory over the treaty in July, many gun owners will “go home” and stop standing up to Hillary, Obama and the UN tyrants.

Obama knows he must rally his anti-gun allies for November, and as already stated, he is pushing their defunct schemes “under the radar” to get the job done.

NAGR will bring you up-to-the minute reports on the UN Programme Against Small Arms throughout the next two weeks.  Stay tuned.

Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

The following is a letter from U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky).  Senator Paul has been working with the National Association for Gun Rights to stop the Obama Administration and the Progressive/Liberal Left from slowly diminishing our Constitutional rights, specifically the Second Amendment which guarantees United States citizens the RIGHT TO OWN AND BEAR ARMS.

Please join me and the 1,400,000 Americans who have already signed the petition against this UN treaty.  The petition will be sent to your Senators to let them know that WE, the American People, will not be governed by the United Nations.

(Note:  All treaties between the United States and another entity must be ratified by the United States Senate.  Currently, the U.S. Senate is controlled by the liberal Democrats with 51 seats;  the Republicans hold 47 seats and there are 2 Independent members, totaling 100 members.)

Dear April,

Have you signed your Firearms Sovereignty Survey yet?

The National Association for Gun Rights has collected over 1,400,000 signed surveys against the UN Small Arms Treaty with tens of thousands of more pouring in each week!

If you haven’t yet signed, please go ahead and do so by clicking here.  It’s still vital that your Senators feel pressure to oppose the UN Small Arms Treaty from grassroots gun rights activists like you.

But if you’ve already signed, will you forward the email below to every pro-gun American you know?

By forwarding this email to your family and friends, you will be letting them know that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton still have their sights set on advancing, and passing, the UN Small Arms Treaty.

Click here to forward the email below right now.

On the page I link to there is a space for a personal message.  Please make sure to add a short note so your friends know what the email is about.

This is an important step in growing the grassroots gun rights army opposed to the UN Small Arms Treaty.

I hope I can count on your action today.

Click here to forward the Firearms Sovereignty Survey to your family and friends.

Please read my email below to find out just how dangerous the UN Small Arms Treaty is to our gun rights why it’s still a threat.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

From: Rand Paul [rand.paul@nationalgunrights.org]
Sent: Monday, 9:35 AM
Subject: Hillary Commits to UN Small Arms Treaty

April,

Gun-grabbers around the globe believe they have it made.  You see, the UN Small Arms Treaty is proving harder to kill than Freddy Krueger.

I’ve just learned that the next opportunity for the UN to push global gun control is August 27th.

Officially, it’s called the “United Nations Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons in All Its Aspects.”  And I hear the gun grabbers will jump on it “like a snarling pack of hyenas.”

Disguised as an “International Arms Control Treaty” to fight against “terrorism,” “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates,” the UN Small Arms Treaty is in fact a massive, GLOBAL gun control scheme.

I’m helping lead the fight to defeat this radical treaty in the United States Senate and I want your help.  Please join me by taking a public stand against this outright assault on our national sovereignty by signing the Official Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

Ultimately, the UN Small Arms Treaty is designed to register, ban and CONFISCATE firearms owned by private citizens like YOU.

So far, the gun-grabbers have successfully kept the exact wording of their new scheme under wraps.  But looking at previous versions of the UN Small Arms Treaty, you and I can get a good idea of what’s likely in the works.

If passed by the UN and ratified by the U.S. Senate, the UN Small Arms Treaty would almost certainly FORCE the U.S. to:

  • Enact tougher licensing requirements, making law-abiding Americans cut through even more bureaucratic red tape just to own a firearm legally;
  • CONFISCATE and DESTROY ALL “unauthorized” civilian firearms (all firearms owned by the government are excluded, of course);
  • BAN the trade, sale and private ownership of ALL semi-automatic weapons;
  • Create an INTERNATIONAL gun registry, setting the stage for full-scale gun CONFISCATION.

I’m sure I don’t have to tell you that this is NOT a fight we can afford to lose.  Ever since its founding 65 years ago, the United Nations has been hell-bent on bringing the United States to its knees.

To the petty dictators and one-world socialists who control the UN, the United States of America isn’t a “shining city on a hill” — it’s an affront to their grand designs for the globe.  These anti-gun globalists know that so long as Americans remain free to make our own decisions without being bossed around by big government bureaucrats, they’ll NEVER be able to seize the worldwide power they crave.

And the UN’s apologists also know the most effective way to finally strip you and me of ALL our freedoms would be to DESTROY our gun rights.  That’s why I was so glad to hear that the National Association for Gun Rights is leading the fight to stop this assault on our Constitution!

The truth is there’s no time to waste.  You and I have to be prepared for this fight to move FAST.

The fact is the last thing the gun-grabbers at the UN and in Washington, D.C. want is for you and me to have time to mobilize gun owners to defeat this radical legislation.  They’ve made that mistake before, and we’ve made them pay, defeating EVERY attempt to ram the UN Small Arms Treaty into law since the mid-1990s.

But now time may not be on our side.  In fact, we’re likely to only have a few weeks to defeat the treaty when they make their move.  And we definitely don’t have a President in the White House who will oppose this treaty.

So our ONE AND ONLY CHANCE to stop the UN Small Arms Treaty is during the ratification process in the U.S. Senate.  As you know, it takes 67 Senate votes to ratify a treaty.

With new pro-gun champions joining me in the Senate, rounding up enough votes to kill this thing should be easy, right?  Unfortunately, that couldn’t be further from the truth.  Even with the Republican tidal wave in 2010, there still isn’t a pro-gun majority in the Senate to kill ratification of the treaty.  You know just as well as I do how few Senators are truly “pro-gun.”

Not only that, but many Senators get “queasy” about killing treaties for fear of “embarrassing” the President — especially with “international prestige” at stake.  They look at ratifying treaties much like approving the President’s Supreme Court nominees.

Remember how many Senators turned their back on us and voted to confirm anti-gun Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor?  A dozen more only voted against Sotomayor after receiving massive grassroots pressure from the folks back home.

So if we’re going to defeat the UN Small Arms Treaty gun owners have to turn the heat up on the U.S. Senate now before it’s too late!

  • Do you believe the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Second Amendment are the supreme law of the land?
  • Do you believe any attempt by the United Nations to subvert or supersede your Constitutional rights must be opposed?

If you said “Yes” to these questions, please sign the survey the National Association for Gun Rights has prepared for you.

Your survey will put you squarely on the record AGAINST the UN Small Arms Treaty.

And along with your signed survey, I hope you’ll send a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35 to help finance this battle.  With your generous contribution, the National Association for Gun Rights will continue contacting Second Amendment supporters to turn up the heat on targeted U.S. Senators.

Not only that, but they’re preparing a massive program to launch the second this treaty is brought before the Senate.  Direct mail.  Phones.  E-mail.  Blogs.  Guest editorials.  Press conferences.  Hard-hitting internet, newspaper, radio and even TV ads if funding permits.  The whole nine yards.

Of course, a program of this scale is only possible if the National Association for Gun Rights can raise the money.  But that’s not easy, and we may not have much time.

In fact, if gun owners are going to defeat the UN Small Arms Treaty pro-gun Americans like you and me have to get involved NOW!  So please put yourself on record AGAINST the UN Small Arms Treaty by signing NAGR’s Firearms Sovereignty Survey.

But along with your survey, please agree to make a generous contribution of $250, $100, $50 or even just $35.  And every dollar counts in this fight so even if you can only chip in $10 or $20, it will make a difference.

Thank you in advance for your time and money devoted to defending our Second Amendment rights.

For Freedom,

Rand Paul
United States Senator

Those of you who know me, know that I used to be a Democrat – that was when the Democratic Party was a party that cared about helping people and small businesses to earn and grow on their own merits, through their own hard work.  That party is no longer alive.

The party callingImage themselves Democrat has been taken over by the Progressive movement (take a minute to look up the Progressives which began with Woodrow Wilson whose vision of a one world government gave birth to he United Nations and check out this article.)

True Democrats, have NO party. 

The Republican ImageParty has deteriorated into a scrambled mess with no real leader.  While they raise the banner for conservatism, they put forth Presidential candidates that are not true conservatives:  Bush, McCain, and Romney.

With a few exceptions, the Republicans in Congress have turned into vanilla clones with no backbone, no fire in their belly to fight.   Read this from conservative writer David Horowitz.

True Republican conservatives, have NO party. 

There are extremes to both sides of the fence, but as a whole, the majority of Americans fall into the right-of-center category.  WHERE is that party?  There is none.

Image

We need a complete change in our political structure. The Tea Party has done their best to look at candidates from both parties and support those that assert an opinion that is from a “common sense” point of view.  However, the Tea Party is a movement, not a political party.  They have little power to do much.

Both Democrat and Republican parties control the money, and money controls the power.  At this point, those of us who are conservative or libertarian or old-school Democrats, have only one option…and that is to vote with the party that will do the least harm to the Country.  For 2012 that is Mitt Romney.

While I and others are tempted to vote for someone else, maybe Ron Paul or Donald Trump, that action will only gain a vote for Obama.  IN A NATIONAL ELECTION, ANY WRITE IN VOTES WILL ONLY HELP YOUR OPPOSITION.  Whether or not we like Romney (and I think he is not as aggressive as we need but…), we MUST vote for ROMNEY, else we will have, in fact, allowed a vote for Obama.

God Help Us.
