Things should begin looking better for our country when Obama and many Democrats are voted out of office.
If you're going to be a single issue voter, that's fine but do it right. Not all GOP believe in the Second Amendment and not all Dems oppose it. Sure, many do align that way but it's still your responsibility to understand and make an informed decision.
I don't know if this applies to you and please understand that it's said with no malice... Fail to select a candidate based on your own informed decision and you've given up your right to complain about what happens after the election.
I have voted Democrat. I have voted Republican. I have voted Independent. In each and every case, I did my own research and made an informed decision.
The ability to vote and the belief that certain rights are conveyed by our Creator (whomever that may be: G-d, The Flying Spaghetti Monster, Hashem, Allah, Vishnu, Xenu, Yahweh, Eric Clapton, you get my drift) are what separate the USA from other societies and from the rest of the animal kingdom. That single concept is what makes us who we are. Celebrate these great freedoms but remember that there are those who will try to take them away. Permitting that soils the memories of Americans who have willingly traded their lives so the rest of us can live as free people in control of our own destiny.
