I don't like Harry either BUT punishing the NRA will not ensure he is not reelected, that requires getting off you azz and into the voting booth.

Rants on blogs don't register in the voting booth. Grow up and stop sounding like some MI militia wacko!
On this board alone I know of many active voters & NRA members, including myself. Some members are even lifers in the NRA. Are you?
Only having a discussion and staying vigilant.
FTF supports the NRA. Some mods having NRA membership links in their signature and new member welcome threads, also sticky topics with links.

Then you must agree the NRA has changed over the years.
How old were you when you signed on for life?

Sort of like voting for Perot...which gave us Clinton.
I didnt vote for NObama.

'Much of a force on the hill'.

I'm so sick of that crap.'The hill' can kiss by backside-until they decide to recognize the limitations to their 'force'.

So its all about paid members and being a majority?

I beg to differ-its about the Republic and making sure the majority opinion limits its activities to within Constitutional bounds......

I dont trust the NRA,and I believe I have valid reasons.

My opinion is that its all about money,just as it is with all the other major lobbies up there in the District of Corruption-and if there was no 'gun control',NRA wouldn't have so many 'paid members'.
I'll stop there with that.
Draw your own conclusions.

BUT.

This doesn't mean NRA cant change and do the right thing-no more compromises of inalienable rights with progressive socialist scum like Harry Reid.

Default Underfire, I'm glad you're impressed.... as I like to tell "utes"

"I have seen 68 you may not".

You certainly won't retain your rights if you allow your support to be fragmented by extremists who are easy targets for
Holder's "jack booted thugs."

It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government, except all the others have been tried.

The same may be said of the NRA.

The problem with going with a one issue politician is sure..they may be pro 2A but whats if that same person would be happy shaving off pieces of the 1A? or any other part of the Constitution? Thing is, we have to be careful who we support and why. I'm not willing to give up one amendment to get another and that should be what we all are looking at. The country needs to get back to the basics and stop calling the Constitution a "living document that need be re-interpreted" as time goes by. It's all pretty black and white. The Constitution worked as it did leaving the stated the abilities to take care of things that the feds have no business in.

All of the Constitution is important. At least to me. So I will not support someone that is Pro 2A if they are not willing to stand up for the rest of it. Especially when they take an oath to protect it.

brandy,
I am impressed. I wasn't being sarcastic in my earlier post. Sorry if it came across that way. That was not my intentions. I figured you were near 70. I became a member in 1987 (23 yrs. old) I'm 45 now. And you're right I may not reach 68. All the more reason to stay vigilant, so that I can.

I get concerned when I see organizations like the NRA start to lobby like/mimic politicians. I've noticed the NRA has bargained on some of the issues. I remember when the NRA was a no compromise gun lobby in Washington. The NRA was relentless & never gave up any ground whatsoever. What's happened?

Who has said that...a Socialist? a Commy?
Because political power being with "We the People" IS the best form of government. That's what separates us from the others and why so many want what we have.

Default The word is Commie and the quote is attributed to

Winston Churchill... hardly a commie or a socialist.

the NRA seems to me to be a lot like all the trade unions around here(chicago) these days...they had a purpose at one time, when the workers truly needed organized representation.

Now, despite, what the workers(due paying members) truly need, they operate to maintain their existence more than anything else....just like an elected individual's political nature will make them do the same.

NRA seems to be exactly that, a union for personal gun owners and enthusiasts

i dont think that means the NRA or unions should be completely done away with, they have a purpose, they just need to keep sight of it, and not stray from that original directive.
