We the Conservative Americans, who are seriously pissed off at Obama’s and his democrat minions gun grab had chances.
In 2008, we had the opportunity to unite behind a less than desirable party leader and vote in droves for McCain/Palin. While it may have been a futile effort with the media’s bias at least the senate and house races may have been less of a disaster. What I mean is if 5 to 7% of Conservatives that stayed home actually voted in the election they would have also voted for senate/house seats. IF those seats didn’t result in democrat victories, perhaps Obamacare and the rest of the idiocy wouldn’t have happened.
In 2012, we had the very same opportunity and even with the prospect of Obama with nothing to lose running the nation for 4 more years, we failed.
The “GOP” now has these “feelings” that they need to give in on several issues to attract more voters. The WORST POSSIBLE answer to the problem the GOP faces is to “Compromise”
In 2008 and 2012 the very reason we are where we are is NO CHOICE. One is viewed as just as bad as the other. Even though that view is seriously WRONG. I can’t stand RINO McCain or Graham or any other RINO but NOT ONE OF THEM would be thinking about the sort of gun grab that is happening RIGHT NOW!.. And that is a fact.
We also lost two SCOTUS judges. Think about that. Had we NOT ALLOWED Obama to take the reigns in 08, we’d have Scalia/Roberts/Thomas/Kennedy/Alito and two more. And yes I know Roberts let us down on Obamacare but I WOULD BET MY LIFE THIS GUN GRAB WOULDN’T BE CLOSE! But now we have Keagan/Sotomeyor and maybe one more before this gun legislation (If it passes) gets to the court. How important is that vote now?
Many of us said it. Many of us were ridiculed by “Strong Conservatives” who said they’d stay home since their guy wasn’t on the ballot.
So if you didn’t vote in 08, I don’t want to hear a damn thing from you about the gun grab. IF you didn’t vote in 2012, shut up too.
