You can forget hope and change.

I fervently hope that President Obama does not get to appoint another anti-gun Supreme Court justice like Sonia Sotomayor or Elena Kagan. But he probably will, and we must meet that challenge. His chances of appointing a replacement for one of the five pro-rights justices in the 5-4 Heller and McDonald majorities are high.

I'm not so sure about that. Breyer and an ailing Ginsburg are the oldest justices, IIRC.

I am an Endowment member of the National Rifle association, donate to the NRA-ILA, Life member of the Gun Owners of America, Life member of the Texas State Rifle Association... also considering a couple of others...

Proud to say I also was an early supporter of Ted Cruz with donations to both of his primary campaigns...

I also make two donations a year to FR for $50.00 each; this is what I used to spend on a subscription to the local sports-paper. I could care less if another football is ever kicked in Texas and that is what 80% of the local news was/is.

I try to support the paths that I walk...

A few years back, I let my NRA membership lapse.

It was a Harry Reid thing, I am of the opinion that the NRA has been much too supportive (in a tacit sort of way) of the dishonest fungus that is Mister Reid.

Fast forward to now, I rejoined the NRA. I can't let their (again, tacit) Reid endorsement stand in the my way of support for the Second Amendment, so ... I'm back.

For now, anyway.

(One hopes that the NRA has since learned of the mendacity and the deceit that is one Mister Reid.)

If the results in the first link are reproducible, the differences between the parties can't be reconciled. Most of the members in each party engage different parts of the brain for the same problem most of the time.

Obama is leading this country to financial ruin, borrowing over a trillion dollars a year for phony “stimulus” spending and other payoffs for his political cronies. Nobody knows if or when the fiscal collapse will come, but if the country is broke, there likely won’t be enough money to pay for police protection. And the American people know it.

I don't think liberals 'know' it... they'll learn the hard way...
