Get out of your comfort zone

Discussion in 'Political Issues' started by 9mmtupperware, Jun 6, 2012.

  1. The November election will be here before you know it. It is imperative that Barack Obama not be re-elected. Not only should he be defeated, but he must be defeated by crushing numbers. A huge blowout will give the congress the mandate they need to roll back the damage this administration has inflicted upon our country. Even with a solid mandate it may take a generation or more to undo the damage. In three and a half years they have written more than eighty thousand pages of regulations. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are in full agreement with the UN small arms treaty and will work for its adoption. The reasons why we should vote them out are many, and are fodder for another post.

    I am bringing this up now because a rumor has come to my attention that up to 30% of the NRA membership is not registered to vote. I have found this information stunning and it is what has moved me from my comfort zone to send this out.

    If you or a friend have not voted in a long time, or you are not sure if you are registered, use the following link to verify that you are. If you are not registered the page will also allow you to register online or through the USPS. If you have friends that you suspect are not voting talk to them and explain the urgency. Spread the link to everyone who believes in the original intent of the constitution, and is 2nd amendment friendly, all others need not apply. Spread this message to other forums and all like minded people on your e-mail list. Your one vote is the only ammo you have to make a change. As I write this Eric Holder has stopped the state of Florida from purging illegals from its voter rolls. You can be sure that the other side is very active registering both the dead and the live. In the words of uncle Ted we must be "locked cocked and ready to rock doc".

    Remember this election will probably be the most important election in the history of the United States of America. Get active-spread the word.

    I am an NRA member, registered to vote, and will hold my nose and vote Mitt this fall.

    However, if Obama wins, America will carry on and it will not be the end of the world. Electing Mitt and a Congress full of repubs will not make things better if we don't fundamentally all get out of our comfort zone and be for freedom across the board.

    On this forum, you will find plenty of Ron Paul supporters who will sit out to ensure their man Obama gets a 2nd term. Sure, they say they hate Obama, but they really want to see him win so that Paul will have a 3rd try when he's 85(although some are convinced that Paul will win the nomination this year through a combination of mysticism and luck). These Ron Paul supporters hate Romney more than they love the 2nd Amendment, so please don't count on any help from them.

    Obama only ever talked about gun control. Romney actually did it. And you claim to love the Second Amendment?

    Why so defensive about voting for Obama?

    May I ask why you're voting for Obama?

    Defensive B/C I usually get berated for simply articulating a contrary political view on this site, and most are not interested in discussion, but rather chest pounding to same thinkers.

    Thank you for asking why in a decent manner.

    For one I don't think he is the evil anti-Christ. He is a bumbling politician dealt a ****ty card.
    Two, Romney is no better and even perhaps no worse, so with a k own commodity, I'll take it.
    Third, I honestly believe much of the vitriol towards our President is racial, conscious or sub-conscious.
    Fourth, I don't like Republican social values. I do however like fiscal responsibility, whigs Republicans are more I tune to. However, I blame congress and not the POTU for our economic crisis (power of the purse).

    And just to put cards of the table: 2nd Amendment supporter, social liberal, fiscal moderate and progressive thinker.

    That's a few for starters.

    How different we are!

    I think Obama is the anti-Christ, sent by hell to destroy the USA.

    He's not a bumbling politician, he knows exactly what he's doing.

    He inherited a bad economy and made it worse.

    Romney is different than Obama and will make a much better president.

    Dislike of Obama isn't racial, it's because of his socialist policies.

    I love republican social values.

    We seem very different. And while I think you are WAY off, I respect your process and ideals.

    Obama is far from a socialist.
    Romney is different, but "much" better? Come on? He's only slightly to the right of the President.
    We agree he inherited a bd economy, but it was rolling down hill and unstoppable. History show TPOUS has a minimal effect on economy, but gets blamed or rewarded or it.
    You don't really believe the whole "anti-christ" thing. Do you?

    If you think the election swings on Ron Paul supporters, perhaps Mitt should pick up his game and lure in independants and maybe convert some Democrats.
    BTW, thanks for noticing how important a third party candidiate is becoming.
    It won't be RP at age 85 running. It will be Rand Paul. Probably as a Republican but who knows.

    I supported Ron Paul but I always end up voting of the LESSER of the two evils and will do so again.

    I could see myself voting for Paul. Love the Independent! I'd rather have a thinker than a Political Party Tool. And yes I thin Obama is a Tool.

    1) Obama knows exactly what he and his supporters are doing. He said he wanted to “to fundamentally transform America ”.

    2) I'll take Mittens over what Obama has done so far - things like the Healthcare bill, the so-called stimulus, cash for clunkers, the credit card reform act among others signed into law.

    Obama made a lot of promises, none of which he's kept. Remember these:

    --“I promise 100% transparency in my administration.”.
    --“I promise NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year.”.
    --“I will allow 5 days of public comment before I sign any bills.”.
    --“I will remove earmarks from PORK projects before I sign any bill.”.
    --“I will end Income Tax for seniors making less than $50K a year.”.
    --"I will bring ALL of our troops home within ONE year."
    --“I’ll put the Health Care negotiations on CSPAN so everyone can see who is at the table!”.
    --“I’ll have no lobbyists in my administration."
    --"I'll close Guantanamo."
    --"I'll resign if I don't cut the deficit in half by the end of four years."
    --"I'll unite the people of this great country."

    Has he kept any of those listed?

    3) Disagreeing with someone on philosophical/political issues is not the same as being racist.*

    4) With all the things going on, social values is the last thing I'm worried about. I also blame congress, especially under the leadership of Pelosi. Operating w/out a budget isn't cutting it either.

    * I'm not considered white.

    What exactly is a "progressive thinker"? For the record, I'm just a thinker.
