Default Are you with us, or against us?

So, we have been thinking about using our collective membership here as a voice to our government gone awry. Initially opaww had proposed this idea a couple of months ago - but I think it's time has come.

We have several very intelligent and well informed members here. I think of most of you like brothers from another mother. Except for canebreak, he is more like my annoying uncle I can't get rid of.

I am proposing that we work together, using our collective intellect, to make a run of letters that we can work on together, edit and make powerful, but without threats, that our membership can then copy and paste to send to our Governors, our Senators and CONgress citters to let them know this membership, We The People and watching and we are NOT amused.

So my question is this: Do you want to help out? Do you want to actually be involved in a solution? Or do you want to sit around with your head in the sandbox of appeasement and let out government continue to go unanswered for their acts?

Make your votes and let's see where the rubber meets the road....

I am counting on you guys to do the right thing.

JD

Default Do Nothing; Become A Criminal!

Think about this; if you do nothing now, by the time you're my age this request will be illegal!

I’m thinking……….But…..

I volunteered awhile back for another job and have yet to hear a word about that suggestion. An equally useful tool for us here @ FTF.

I’m not lookin’ to be stroked, too old for that, just want this to be the best source for gun owners’ info anywhere!

I would be honored to support our PRO-ACTIVE effort to be heard by the "Masters* in Washington" and state elected officals.

Wow, three votes but only two posts, someone have a commitment problem?

Look guys, the time has passed to sit back and let your fate be determined by others! If that isn’t obvious take a look at how the porkulus stimulus bill was railroaded into law!

Step up!

I am willing to write, or review and make suggestions about anything others contribute. I'm working on a letter about the so-called stimulus package. Will post it up for comments when I'm done.

I'm in, but as I said, my personal style tends to put people off, so I'll pass along what gets approved here. That being said, whoever does this better know how to write and have correct grammar because I am a Nazi on that Sh1t. No pressure.

I would love to help and get involved, but my writing is hit or miss, very good or very bad! Let me know what I can do!

I'm game, I always got good grades in my writing in college. I'm not a great proof reader though, I seem to just fill in whats missing or correct things mentally and overlook them on the paper.

Brothers keep your facts straight and I put my Joe Hancock on anything you come up with. You have to back your rhetoric with facts. That means citing your sources and giving credit where it is due. The lying left seems to often forget how important facts are. Your my brothers, I got your back.

Spittenfire, I try to read what I write out loud. I still make mistakes, but not as many.
