Re: Sen. Mitch McConnell is warning us..

It's no suprise to me. It's all about Obama's Socialist empire. This has been an ongoing thing, just like Katrina. martial law and the taking of guns from the citizens with no recourse. I've talked about this many times before.

Wake up for Christsakes...... This ISN'T A GAME....

Nothing new, no revelation. Guess what, the legislation was enacted during Clinton's tenure that allowed foreign troops on US Soil to fire on citizens in time of national emergency or declared martial law and empowered US troops under orders to fire on citizens as well.

Nothing new here, no revelation, no crystal ball.

The last 30 years has been a march toward Socialism, Clinton, Bush and now Obama. It's finally starting to sink in, now that they are after the guns. It's all been happening for decades and all of us, me included have been passively accepting their bullshit.

I hate to break it to everyone but, if this turns into civil disobedience or an uprising against the government.... Guess what folks, those adversaries, the military that don't stand down or the LE's that don't stand down are gonna be returning fire. People are going to be killed. Face the facts here. This is not fantasy and you can't wish it away. This animal (troops or other empowered to kill you) SHOOT BACK. Your deer or youe elk or your Dahl Sheep don't. DON'T EVER FORGET THAT AND DEAD IS DEAD.

You can't take your AR or your 6 shot pump and go play Clint Eastwood. This isn't about playing and I don't believe the gravity has settled in. You go out and play bad ass, chances are someone will drill your ass....

For each and every person, it is a PERSONAL CHOICE if it comes to that.

This is NOT A VIDEO GAME WHERE YOU CAN TURN IT OFF AND GO DO SOMETHING ELSE. THIS IS REAL.

The guy in the video.... I knew that 10 years ago....old news.

I apologize for the profanity but I read some of this drivel and I think to myself how uninformed some people are.

Thats why I say, do this diplomatically and reasonably and exhause every possible avenue before resorting to force because resistance will be met with opposing resistance and possible death.

Re: Sen. Mitch McConnell is warning us..

Flip hit the nail right on the head. It's a hell of a lot easier to do it in the ballot box so GET ACTIVE!
If the ballotbox fails, it's a damn ugly scenario...just take a look at Syria. It's not that it can't be done, it's a question of who will have the testicular fortitude to stand up to oppression. I presonally hope to never be faced with that decision, but if I am, I will do my damnedest to choose the righteous one.
If you want an idea of what has been going on behind the scenes, search for info about Administrative Subpoenas, then look into the NDAA, then check out the current iteration of the PATRIOT act. They have systematically eroded the Bill of Rights for years in the name of "security" it's time to make a stand folks....

Re: Sen. Mitch McConnell is warning us..

One mans ceiling is another mans floor...

All of us need to heavily discount what we hear via the media and take an in depth look it whats really transpiring.

I care less about Mitch McConnell. guess what, he's a professional politician (read in it for the money) just like all the rest and thats bi-partisan across the board.

Politicians go to Washington to become millionaires off the backs of the working class...you and me. I'm tired of it.

I could deal with it in the past because they basically left me alone. I could deal with high cigarette costs (I smoke), I could deal with wearing seat belts, I could deal with wearing a motorcycle helmet, I could deal with being x-rayed for weapons before getting on a plane or going into the courthouse, I could deal with higher taxes, I could deal with high gasoline costs, I could deal with all the bullshit regulations that the government put on me because in their opinion, I didn't have the intelligence to do the right thing for myself but I have to draw the line at a government that wants to strip me of my Constitutional rights, something that my forefathers enjoyed and took for granted because it was the law of the land, forever and ever simply because the government wants to change the very fabric of the way I live and they way my children will live into a Socialist society.

History has proven time and time again that a Socialist utopia is doomed to failure and the misery and loss of life that accompanies that demise is unfathomable.

That is exactly what is occurring and has been occurring for the last 30 years in this country. We as individuals and collectively need to say, enough is enough and it's time to stand our ground.

Thats how I feel. Maybe you don't. Thats your right, but make no mistake about it. In a Socialist government you will have no rights, you will have no opinion and you will have no recourse. You have it now, but are about to loose it, exactly what Obama wants and all the gun bangers. They want to take from you, the last barrier to them that stands in the way of their totarian control of the population, THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS AGAINST A TYRANNICAL GOVERNMENT..... Thats what the Second Amendment says and directly implies.

Our founding fathers were wise in the fact that they knew the population need to have a final check in the checks and balances of central government. They knew an armed militia made up of citizens was the ultimate deterrent to a tyrannical government and oppression, thats why the Second Amendment was written as it is and why Obama wants to malign and reminder it harmless. It's the only thing standing in his way.

We are at a pinnacle not only in history, but a pinnacle in the very makeup of our government, how it operates and what it represents to the people, you and me.

While I did not vote for Obama in 2012, he was elected by a majority of the population and certified by the electoral college, something I personally believe should be abolished for many reasons I won't get into here.

Obama revels in the fact that he won, what he seems to forget is that it wasn't a landslide victory, but rather a close election considering his opponent, almost too close (popular vote) to call. Obama really don't have a concise majority that will subvert to his every whim though he believes the population will, and has up to now. We have become a country of passive followers and Obama knows that. You can tell that from his speeches and from his mannerisms. He's arrogant and condescending devoid of diplomacy and tact as evidenced by his politically motivated attack on the NRA for one example.

Now is the time to make that stand in a unilateral manner and show our solidarity against his Socialist agenda, however, we need to do it in a non-violent and diplomatic way, through organizations like the NRA and your local rifle and pistol organizations, by writing and expressing your opinions and concerns to all elected officials from Obama right on down to your local sheriff and police departments.

There may come a time in the future where we must make individual decisions based on our beliefs and our principles but that isn't now.

I genuinely want everyone of us on here to get through this and be able to enjoy the pastime we all love without government intervention that is not needed or wanted.

........Off my soapbox.

If there are any miss spellings I apologize for that as well.

Re: Sen. Mitch McConnell is warning us..

No get back on it! Your from the generation directly preceding mine. A lot of wht you talk about occurring 30yrs ago, I was either to young to know or just wasn't aware enough. Some of it I have been aware of (or the possibility of) for the last 15yrs or so. I am aware now though.

Re: Sen. Mitch McConnell is warning us..

Joe....

Sometimes it's tough being an old fart (just ask Len and Roy)......

I just want people on here to undersatand that all of whats occuring right now has been brewing for a long, long time. It's just Obama has sped up the timeline.

I'm not that far from the endless dirt nap, the end of my timeline is much closer than the beginning, consequently, I want to know that when I'm gone, the very things I've held dear throughout my life will continue through future generations. Your children (and mine) as well as their children and on, will continue to live and prosper in a society and under a government governed by the people, for the people.

Thats is not Obama's vision, or Pelosi or Feinstein or Cumo or any of them, Republican or Democrat. In actuality, what we really need is a 'cleansing' if you will of stagnant carrear politicians. We need serious term limits and we need to abolish the good old boy government.

Which is why I urge everyone to join the NRA, to write letters, to contact local officials, talk to their friends, even people on the street and explain whats going on. That furthers the 'we the people, for the people' attitude and thats what will allow us to triumph in the end and preserve our right to bear arms and the entire Constitution and the Bill of Rights. In essence it's not about winning anything. It's about preserving what we have taken for granted for decades that we are about to loose. It's that important and I'm all focused on it, all the time...

No politician can ignore the majority. Majority always rules, even in a Socialistic govermnet, ultimately the majority is the driving force behind it's demise.

I've said before I wish I'd gotten into this longer range stuff earlier in life but I still want to enjoy what I have left without some asshole politician taking my guns, especially one that knows nothing about why I have firearms in the first place.

Re: Sen. Mitch McConnell is warning us..

sidecarflip im 78 yrs old and i agree with most of what youve said.
lots of elections have been close in our lifetimes. but there were always
winners werent there. this guy won and he won because more people cared he did than those of us who cared that he didnt. its that simple.
no doubt lots of gun owners voted for him. some are probably members here.
we all know the statistics on gun owners and nra membership.
thats a dead horse issue that wont change much. as for someone saying we
need to gear up for next time, what about last time? the most important election in our lifetime and we lost it. now its going to be next time?
is there any chance he could have about 12 million more voters by next time?
is there any chance he could own the supreme court by next time?
can we count on guys like boehner and mcconnel next time?
this guy is in the cat bird seat and he knows it and we put him there.
there aint gonna be a next time.

You got me by a few years, I'm 63. Len is older than me by a year, Roy is a bit older too. That makes me the young'in, I guess.

I'm not sure if there will be a next time or not. It will all depend on the awareness level of the citizens and just how much they are willing to passively accept.

Which brings me to a point and that is. the media has perpetrated Obama to be a messiah of sorts, sort of a reincarnated Jesus Christ and the soother and healer of all ills. Problem is, he isn't. He is not even a good statesman, what he is, is a purveyor of promises he can't keep.

I'll bare my ass to the world and admit here, on a public forum, in front of all, that I voted for Obama over McCain and Palin. Obama promised me hope and change and I bought into the chirade. I didn't like McCain because I was sick of war, not that war isn't necessary for a robust economy as we've seen in the past, a war economy galvanizes the citizens, creates jobs and increases wealth among the citizens, but I was tired of the non war conflict scenario, remember, I'm a product of the Vietnamn era. I'll never forget 'Nam and I'll never forget the way the American public treated Vitenamn vets. That was a shameful thing. I didn't care for Palin either. Granted, she had nice legs but I saw nothing from the neck up. 2 non-leaders are as bad as one leader and Obama wooed me with his rhetoric and his JFK style. I got to see 4 years of a non functioning president who was on endless vacations and got increasing belligerent with the very people who voted him in office. The stigma with Obama is anything said in a negative tone is instantly construed as racial, however, Obama can sling tons of **** without any retribution.

Then along came Romney, who's from Michigan, where I live btw. Ronney rose above the other candidates by sheer financial strength alone. I much preferred the early black candidate, the one that was conveniently smeared by the media as an adulterer, not that Clinto or Kennedy wasn't. I foubd it inyertesting that he got smeared and as soon as he dropped out, everything ended plus all the women he supposedly wanked were from Chicago, Obama's home turf. How convenient. Anyway, I wasn't all the fond of Romney, he is big money, a prerequsite for being a Beltway Bozo anyway. I liked his running mate, it should have been the other way around but I voted Romney anyway. I'm a Ron Paul guy at heart but why toss a vote so Romney got mine.

What put Obama in was the entitlement people plus the moderates that jumped ship plus all the negative, except for Obama media bullshit, the best reason for discounting anything from any media outlet that comes across the 11PM news.

Which brings all of us th the present. As I said before, this issue, above all previous issues crosses all lines. This has never occured in Obama's ternure and one reason Obama is singling out the NRA as a political target. His handlers full well know this isuue could very well be the end of the Chancellors reign. When you take just the 4 million NRA members (as of January 20th), plus all those citizens that don't belong but own firearms and those than aren't at all vocal, like my neighbors and yours, you then have a very large slice of America and they are all pissed and they are all watching and they are all becoming aware that something 'stinks in Denmark' and stinks like ****... and they know who's stinking. It's Obama and his disciples.

Something is going to give this time. Obama's free ride is over and it's time to pay the piper. He knows it too.

If you watch carefully, you'll note he's on the defensive constantly, like a kid that got caught with his hand in the cookie jar and don't want to get slapped. Good example is surrounding himself with the Sandy Hook kids. How crass? No. How cunning.

He's not stupid but he knows he's bitten off a lot bigger bite than he can chew.

Like I've said all along, diplomacy and perserverance should triumph and if it don't, then, it becomes a personal decision, an individual decision.

I imagine you feel like I do. I know what I stand for and where I stand. That comes with age.

Again' please excuse the language and the spelling. My mind goes faster than my fingers. It used to be faster, but age is slowing it down some....
