I am so happy when I see an artical of the importance authored Mehamaysha Mali. Where did all the American journalists go?

I hated voting for Romney but did so anyway. I know of one individual in Florida who voted for Gary Johnson. I haven’t spoken to the individual since election night and if I never do again, it won’t be any time too soon.

I would speak to the individual again. I would let him know that, when the FEMA camps are up and running, you’ll volunteer his name. :)

Why is Obama pushing this country into civil war?

Because he knows nobody is going to do anything to stop it.

We need to take this seriously folks. We must hang together, or we shall all surely hang separately.

Of course, it’s also time to remember that it’s time to take names and BLOAT.

There won’t be any civil war. And when the shit hits the fan, conservatives will go off and hide. The only time there will be a civil war is when the damn human gimi pigs don’t get their free chit from the government.

If the right was going to do something, they would have pulled together and got back into the schools, churches, etc and take back this country. The left has been active for years and they are the ones motivated to destroy this country. They are more motivated to destroy than the right is to save it.

Funny how Diane Frankenstein had her Assault Weapons Ban already done in her top drawer ready to roll...

First off, let's not be rude, and make sure we use their proper names: it's Diane Frankenfeinstein.

In that very top drawer were her very own semi-automatic gun(s) and ammo, which rumour has it, just as with many conservatives, met a tragic boating accident some months or years ago. So sad, I believe her ammo went down as well.

It will be ineffective.

My point. I forgot the "/S."

It's always easier to put more restrictions on the law-abiding. It also leaves the law-abiding at the mercy of the criminals. That, coupled with easy sentencing and early release, is part of the redistribution process.

Let me see if I get this right... Obama wants to ban assult weapons and high capacity magazines because of the Sandy Hook tragedy. I ask then, Why not ban Muslims because of the 9/11 tragedies.

Actually wouldn't it be "Why not ban box cutters because of the 9/11 tragedies?". To the lefties the person is never responsible it is always the machine whether it be guns or SUVs. They operate on their own and are responsible for death and mayhem. I would agree to banning guns when the left agrees to banning autos. Many more annual auto deaths annually than done by guns. Take on the machine doing the most killing first - most bank for the limited Fed buck.

“but I do wish the three million missing conservatives, and the three million conservative voters, who voted for the alternate candidates, had reconsidered their actions.”

No. It is up to the party to nominate a candidate that appeals to the greatest number of base voters.

It isn’t up to voters to put aside their convictions to support any lame candidate.

The GOPe did the opposite, actively opposing many and fighting for RINOmney. I’m willing to bet they learned nothing.

Someone should ask her why she didn’t do this when senate and house side of congress was rat controlled from 08-10 .

Hell they even had the White House.

They can play all the BS agenda games they want. This is the way to lose senate side and keep congress in 2014 by going after cosmetic and capacity features on firearms.

Doom on Obama Inc ....and his presstitutes and polidiots !

It also sounds like you didn’t learn anything. I’m hoping you’ll be the only one come 2016, assuming there will be elections still.

I do appreciate wanting the most conservative candidate, but the time to fight for that is during the nomination process, not during the election. Your way of thinking got us an unaccountable Obama and a democrat-majority Senate.

The Dems are now in position to do everything conservatives fear they would do, and we can’t stop them.

I’m not complaint about you wanting conservative purity. I am only pointing out how your 1 vote effectively contributed to re-electing Obama and a Senate majority.

But you’re welcome to voting how you wish, just recognize the effect yours, and others like you, created. But you’re welcome to your purity vote, even if it means the death of America, as we know it.

I don’t think you understand how the electoral college works.

I’m in a blue state where RINOmney lost by millions of votes. My vote made no difference. If I as in a red state that RINOmney won by millions of votes, my vote would have made no difference. If I was in a purple state, I still would not have voted for RINOmney. There wasn’t a single state out of all 57 where either candidate won by 1 vote. None.

You are either misunderstanding the electoral college or its some other misunderstanding of our system.

Sorry, but if Romney won (as bad as he might have been) things would be looking up right now.

Bullcrap. Romney would be trying to institute an 'assault weapons' ban just like he did when he was governor.

I won't ever vote for an anti-gun liberal. That's what Romney is.

He is pushing it to civil war because he is a convict who wants to oppress others of his convictedness in order to avoid paying for anything including the crime.

Lincoln suspected the South was not an independent competitor but liable to be overtaken by forces settling the West in order to leverage it into a way of oppressing later on the North, and slavery was a sticky point which made the South look more likely to do so.

As to whether Lincoln was freeing the North from the South or imposing the Union of the less free is still up for contention.

What is interesting is that Obama is all TOO WILLING to pay the price of being “bad” to even worse oppressors and terrorists abroad, so to speak, in his hypocrisy - because terror is terror.

Obama is no Lincoln. If he were, he would have long gone upped the nuclear weaponizing or obsolescence through SDI development instead of talking disarmament.

Truth of the matter, the state is playing with Obama with perceptions.

It is not a question about giving up guns or not, it is a question about whether it is time to charge the state and put it back where it belongs, in its incarcerated constraints while letting the self regulating militia carry on. Otherwise it is going to be chaos. The state is not there to insure our safety but to carry certain mandates.

This is a question of freeing the army from the state’s oppressive exploitative clutches, of freeing Americans by having them prosecute Obama and state collaborators.

The 2nd Amendment was just that: a sensitive measure to make it more manageable to secure a balance of power at best, or even a way to put in jail the corrupt perps in power who insist on the decadence of the death tax to take the guns away as heirlooms.

It is not about my guns, it is about the guns, and they cannot have them, period.

Obama hopes to enact new gun-control measures in 2013

Good! Let's get this particular crisis over with.

I remember. The 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, psycho spoiled brats were celebrated in the establishment MSM as the most intelligent generation ever!. They are now arguably that very establishment that praised them and they hold themselves and their ideological issue in even higher regard.

Abe explains what that means.

If you could first know where you are and whither you are tending, you could better judge what to do and how to do it. You initiated a policy to tolerate the Marxist-Alinsky radicals and let them rant; not only has it not ceased but was constantly augmented by decades of infiltration and indoctrination. You now have two Americas. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been reached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half statist and half free; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.

The question today is either the opponents of statism will arrest the further spread of it and place it on course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall become permanent.

Have you no tendency to the latter condition?

Let anyone who doubts carefully contemplate that now almost complete legal combination — piece of machinery, so to speak — compounded of the Republican Party hands-across-the-aisle doctrine and the dreadful actions among statism's chief architects.

The progressives' New Normal ruling elite ordain that inalienable rights are religion-connected and therefore unacceptable and unconstitutional.. only "human rights" granted to the masses by the New Normal ruling elite are legal.

All rise..

I understand just fine, thank you.

Your one vote, if you had been the only person in America to either not vote or vote for an alternate party, would not matter. This is true.

However, the 6 or 7 million individual nonvotes or alternate votes mattered very much. This could have won a Senate majority for the Republicans, and it could have resulted in many states having results close enough to require every vote counted and verified.

It did matter for the country, even if in your very individual situation, it didn’t.

As a conservative independent, I don’t control the crap candidates put forth by your party. I have one vote to use. The 6-7 million votes that didn’t show up are 6-7 million individual decisions That either yawned or were repulsed by your candidates. If the national RINOpublican Party wants their votes, they have to earn them - not demand them. They will earn them by running good candidates, not mouthing platitudes to appear like good candidates.

Your party has screwed themselves royally through your foolish choices. Even worse, they can’t even stand up to Obama. Even worse, they have actively participated in the looting of America.

to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again

That statement probably just made some sicko decide to prove him wrong. Sure, taunt them and someone will take him up on it. Imagine the headlines. Woohoo! Even more publicity than Beslan, Virginia Tech, UT Tower, Sandy Hook and Columbine put together. The next freak will plan something to go out in an even bigger blaze of glory.

Good afternoon. Sorry for the thread hijack...

I'm getting old. Most of my military training is still with me, but I preform on a much lower level.

I lost all of my weapons in a boating accident in the Gulf. It was tragic. The only thing I was able to save was my Buck knife.

I will be able to secure a weapon and ammo. If not on the underground market, then my Buck knife will have to do.

Doesn't all that sound crazy?

The sad truth of the matter is that my country scares me. Everything is out of whack. Shouldn't my country do everything possible to protect my rights?

I pray to the Lord that we are able to heal our divisions. War is such a terrible thing.

“If we are smart we will delay, hamper, reschedule and escalate this debate long enough to ride it to victory in 2014.”

Heh.

The Republicans will be lucky to hold the House by 2014.

Gun control will be a burning issue in 2013, and right now I’d put the odds at least 50/50 that some kind of gun bill will pass in the coming year. The ONLY “point of Republican resistance” to the oncoming legislative onslaught will be the House. Republican senators will either fold like wrapping paper on this one, or be totally marginalized out of the process (remember that Harry Reid says the filibuster is going away in 2013 — a vote of 51 will be all that’s needed).

Assuming that gun control fails next year, expect the ‘rats to go back to hammering the Pubbies on “the economy” and tax breaks for the wealthy right up until the 2014 elections. Things probably won’t improve between now and then and even then the poor economy will be blamed on Republican “obstruction”. There’s a very good chance that the left will break the mold on the midterm elections (where, the party of the president normally loses votes), just as Obama himself broke that mode and won re-election (after presiding over a disastrous economy for four years).

I’ll go on record today predicting that the ‘rats will gain seats in the House in 2014, and may gain just enough to eke out a majority.

If that happens, expect the boom to drop on gun control in 2015.

I won’t like it any more than you do.
But I’m a realist, and that’s how I see it...
