thats what i thought. You got nothing new just like your party.
As far as the bet. . I think it's a little off target. You could never afford to repay me for the loss of a GOD-given right. :cray:
Just getting to read this thread. Thanks for this statement BoomChick--my guns are just an object that represent an underlying ideal. I will not stand for losing my God given right to protect myself to the government--there is no price you can put on loss of liberty.
God created people with certain inalienable rights, some of these being life (including self protection), liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. People, in turn, created government to secure and safeguard those rights they already had before government was even established.
Government is out of line trying to go up the chain and decide for the people which of their God given rights they can and cannot have and how they can exercise those rights.
I don't know if Obama is actually going to take away my guns and/or my rights, but I know he'd like to if he could get the votes in congress to do it--he's said so himself. He'll have a fight if he tries and I think especially with the recent Supreme Court ruling it might take him a lot of work to get his full anti gun agenda passed, but I have no doubt he'll try. Rights can be eroded, infringed, micro-managed by the government, restricted, etc. to such a degree that they might as well have been taken away.
JW,... You have said in previous posts that you "have followed the election quite closely". My question is how? ...
...As for Obama taking away our guns......
He says he wont. ...
YES! And how will he do that? By raising taxes, of course. Where do you think money comes from? From the tax payers.Will Obama do more to help the economy than Bush has done and Mccain will do, probablly. ...
Let's see here. We have the big ten anti 2A Senators. Obama will rubber stamp any legislation that makes it out of Congress since a majority of the anti-2A Senators and Congresspersons are Democrats. We have a Dem controlled House and Senate now, add a Dem President and we're going to see lots of gun control legislation getting plowed through with little or no effort.all thats good guys but taking our guns away ain't on his to do list. He's got to clean up after the last president all you guys voted in for the last 8 years. The economy, Iraq war, and health care, national debt, and the list goes on but that is enough to keep him occupied.
I live in Nevada. Don't bet against the house, you'll lose in the long run. :haha:whatever. If you feel he is going to take you guns away lets put a wager on it.
Lets make a bet. If obama takes your guns away i will personally give you the value in money for them. If he doesnt' each one of you guys all buy me a nice pistol. Anybody want to take me up on that?
About the only way a person can "have followed the election quite closely" and come up with answers/views like JW has is to only get perceptions from watching what they have been saying on TV or other focused advertisements.][/I]
