We were sold out again by the Rino Rats!
 
From GOA:

"Dear Friend of the Second Amendment,

Last week, we alerted you to a radical anti-gun nominee President Obama named to the federal bench, Jesse Furman.

To no one’s surprise, Furman is cut from the same judicial cloth as other Obama nominees such as Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

For instance, in an article published a number of years ago—but from which Furman has not distanced himself—he writes that: “Probably the best explanation for the amount of violent crime in the United States is its fascination with guns.”

GOA members flooded the Senate with emails, and many Senators voted against Furman. But Majority Leader Harry Reid kept every single Democrat in lock-step with the Obama agenda, and Furman was confirmed to a lifetime appointment to the bench on a vote of 62-34.

Republicans Jon Kyl and John McCain (AZ), Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander (TN), Susan Collins and Olympia Snowe (ME), Jeff Sessions (AL), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Scott Brown (MA), and Lindsey Graham (SC) joined all Democrats in voting for Furman.

This vote serves to highlight the difficulty in protecting the courts from anti-Second Amendment nominees who come before the Congress. Obama will continue to nominate far left gun grabbers, and Harry Reid will be his go-to guy for confirmation votes.

And if Obama wins a second term, his agenda will become only more brazen. That’s why a top goal of GOA in 2012 is to help elect as many truly pro-gun friends as we can to the U.S. Senate.

It is crucial that Harry Reid does not retain the gavel next year. But it is not enough to just elect members of the opposing party. We need to elect strong candidates who understand the Constitution and who will not bow to pressure from the White House—whoever the occupant may be—or from the leadership of either party in the Congress.

It seems that there are a few names that are ALWAYS on the list. What a joke these people call themselves republicans.

John McCain and Lindsey Graham are Democrats in disguise...

That's what I'm trying to get people to understand. People keep saying Republicans (any) are the answer to our current problems but most are just as bad as democrats.

You know if people would stop voting party and "electability" and instead start voting person and issues, about 90% of our problems would go away....

That's true in more than one way: 90% of the incumbents would be gone.

You guys make a good point. But here's my issue...most people believe that it's somebody ELSE'S elected officials that are the problem. What seems obvious to us, is for whatever reason lost on others because they KEEP re-electing these clowns.

Wake up! Republicans and Democrats are both part of the same organization. The vast majority of them are not our friends but they will continue to rule us as long as we continue locked into the 2-party system.

Bingo, Chandler51.

For decades the approval rating of the US congress has been lower than whale feces. No one in congress is worth a tinkers damn: Throw them all out.

Primary - I always vote AGAINST the incumbant.

General - I try to vote Libertarian (we generally have several races with Libertarians in the mix). If only R vs D ? Punch the R
