GOA and Gun Rights: At the Center of the Debt Limit Fight
Monday, 11 July 2011 15:46
-- Bachmann and Paul proving to be key leaders

You’ve heard a lot about the “debt limit” fight going on in Washington.

But have you ever wondered how it affects you and your Second Amendment rights?

First, a brief background:* Since he took office, Barack Obama has increased the federal budget from a scandalous $3.1 trillion a year to an even-more-scandalous $3.8 trillion a year.*

Even worse is what he’s done with the additional 2/3 of a trillion per year.* Of interest to gun owners:

* Obama has begun to implement the first stages of ObamaCare, which would create a national medical database, which could be trolled by ATF in order to take away the gun rights of tens of millions of Americans;

* ATF has used its Fast and Furious operation (funded with $10 million from the stimulus bill) in order to put guns in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, ostensibly for the purpose of passing more gun control in Washington;

* ATF has moved forward on its illegal regulations to require the registry of multiple sales of many long guns; and

* ATF has moved forward on its efforts to impose an import ban on shotguns.

As far as we’re concerned, a government large enough to implement an anti-gun ObamaCare is much, much too large.*

Now the bill has come due, and Barack Obama is trying to borrow $2 trillion to pay for his anti-gun agenda.

He cannot be allowed to succeed, unless the deal blocks the $2 trillion from being used to pursue ObamaCare and an anti-gun agenda.

In this respect, Congressman and presidential candidate Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has been a true hero.* She has stood up, frequently alone, to oppose any debt limit deal that would allow the money to be used to implement the anti-gun ObamaCare law.* This is a critical bottom line for gun owners.

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has also spoken out against a deal to raise the debt limit, spearheading a drive that gets other congressmen to sign a “Cut, Cap, and Balance” pledge.

In his press conference this morning, Obama mourned that Washington had been forced to zero in on the federal debt limit, rather than considering, in his words, “something everyone wants, like new programs.”

This tells you a whole lot about what Obama intends to do with the $2 trillion.* Already, leaks which have emerged from the negotiations suggest that the “cuts” consist of cuts to defense, interest, and phony “cuts” which do not kick in until 2014.

The bottom line is this:* The U.S. isn’t going to default on its debt, because, without borrowing a penny, federal tax income will be over ten times the amount necessary to pay interest on the debt.* Similarly, there will be enough money to pay social security, Medicare, defense, and veterans.*

But, if the debt limit is not renewed, there will not be enough money for ObamaCare and anti-gun regulations.* And, frankly, this means that Republicans negotiating with Barack Obama have all the cards in their hands.*

For them to bungle these negotiations and allow Obama to borrow in order to fund ObamaCare would be disastrous.

ACTION:* Contact your congressman.* Demand that he or she votes to cut spending by defunding anti-gun ObamaCare.*

Michele Bachmann is too busy slamming gays and lesbians to do anything constructive. Like we don't have more important things to worry about. I don't know who is worse, her or Sarah Palin.

I have not heard Michele Bachman slam either gays or lesbians. I have heard her repeatedly urge the government to stop spending money we don't have. Comments like the above do not add to serious discourse. We need to get our sh!t together as a country. Standing around chanting "You suck" at each other is not going to help us survive.

Here's just one of many "classic" M. Bachmann quotes

Must be one of those gay liberal plants.

Did you read the article? Actually she said "To call it gay is a part of Satan. It's anything but gay." Do you know the definition of gay? It means "excited with merriment; happy". I have several "gay" friends and they were far from "excited with merriment". They were some of the saddest, most confused men I have known. Not that they weren't good company most of the time, but they were far from happy people.
You have an axe to grind with Mrs Bachman because she doesn't celebrate the homosexual agenda, that's your business. I just want to elect SOMEONE who wants to quit spending money we don't have.

Jeezzz, its getting hostel in this forum tonight! You do know that a religious belief can be stated right? And that religious belief can be believed without actually hating the person right? It is possible to hate the action but accept the person.....Who cares if she agrees with the gays and lesbians? If everyone has to allow you to have the opinion that gays and lesbians are ok, why is it hard for you to give her the same respect that she thinks its NOT ok? What the hell does that have to do with the political stance on debt and gun control?!?!?!?!?!

Common sense says to me "jon, dont you go posting in this thread any stupid sh@t..." but i cant help it.

If gay is not a personal choice how come gays are still around as it is by definition not possible for gays to pass the "gay gene" to non-existant children.

If my wife wants to get iton with another women she knows that she has to bring her friend home and share. Wouldnt be fair otherwise.
