OK, I'm often posting about things that piss me off and make me wonder if we have a future as a nation. Today Im going to talk about a couple things that make me happy and more positive that we will again be the best at being the free nation we are! I hit 20 years working in a Liberal Arts University in upstate NY so Im plastered by BS liberalism 7.5 hours a day, 5 days a week. If you absorb that all day long you might think that is the way of the world, get used to it! Ive seen a couple/ few resident Liberals convert their way of thinking in the last few years. Two are close friends, one early 30's, the other late 50's, both have substantially modified their beliefs and are denouncing many of their prior liberated ways and embracing the concept of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness with the addition of the 2nd amendment to their devotions. Jimmy (Old guy like me) was a lifetime Democrat from NYC that has lived upstate for the last 35 years. Before 9/11, he had no personal use for firearms but realized if the Gov couldnt/ wouldnt live up to its responsibility to keep us safe after disarming us then it was up to him to do it himself. He went from zero to 50 guns in less than 10 years and now knows more about them than I do. He's a different man today than when I showed him how to field strip his new AR a few years ago and his wife is now a lethal shooter as well! Mikey is a young man that was under the impression that he and his family were safe and had no need for any posture other than those described by The Dave Mathews Band. His eyes have become very open in the last couple years. He just had his first Baby and while on Family leave went to an outdoor show, bought a raffle ticket for a shotgun and won it! He took his safety course, picked up the gun and early this week I took him out in the back yard and we blasted it about 20 times. First time he ever shot a weapon and Ive never seen a bigger smile than him plastering the targets I set up. He just bought an old Ithaca double barrel last week, from zero to 2 in 3 weeks is pretty good. Honestly, I really dont know any Conservatives that have changed course on their political views but I do see Liberals changing as they realize more government has turned out to be less rights and innocent dead folks have come of it! A few million new Firearm owners this year alone does tell a story that Hope is Alive and well and living in the USA! Tell your Liberal Convert Story here and let folks see that Barry Oh and Shotgun Joe have done more to hurt their causes than help!
