I See Your True Colors Shining Through...

This from the Democratic Platform, courtesy of Jeff at Alphecca:
“We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation, but we know that what works in Chicago may not work in Cheyenne. We can work together to enact and enforce common-sense laws and improvements, like closing the gun show loophole, improving our background check system and reinstating the assault weapons ban, so that guns do not fall into the hands of terrorists or criminals..."
Vote for b-HO and kiss your ARs goodbye!

Nothing new there.

There is a slim hope B. Hussein will be so focused on being elected to a second term that he will take gun control off the table for a first term. That's a slim reed to hang onto tho.

I still see this race breaking to B. Hussein at the moment unless he commits a major blunder or the Russo/Georgia war heats up and engulfs more of the former Soviet Republics then the American people will likely vote McCain. Lacking a major crisis or blunder I still think B. Hussein wins.

I agree with the previous response. I think Obama will win. I believe the American people just can not make up their minds. They want cradle-to-grave socialism but they do not want to pay for it with higher taxes.

In short, we have a very self indulgent country of whiners and cry babies. People like Obama play are merry minstrels to their ears.

To get a sense of the difference in style of the candidates and the present POTUS, read Kathleen Parker's latest column, "Hey, Vlad, you've got mail."

Just so you of little faith thik that things have changed in the last 144 years here is the text form MY website:www.hjpopowski.com

OK so it only took three weeks to break my own rules of engagement. It's my website so tough noogies.

Democratic Party Platform, 1864

Resolved, That in the future, as in the past, we will adhere with unswerving fidelity to the Union under the Constitution as the only solid foundation of our strength, security, and happiness as a people, and as a framework of government equally conducive to the welfare and prosperity of all the States, both Northern and Southern.

Resolved, That this convention does explicitly declare, as the sense of the American people, that after four years of failure to restore the Union by the experiment of war, during which, under the pretense of a military necessity of war-power higher than the Constitution, the Constitution itself has been disregarded in every part, and public liberty and private right alike trodden down, and the material prosperity of the country essentially impaired, justice, humanity, liberty, and the public welfare demand that immediate efforts be made for a cessation of hostilities, with a view of an ultimate convention of the States, or other peaceable means, to the end that, at the earliest practicable moment, peace may be restored on the basis of the Federal Union of the States. [This is the so called Vallandigham Plank, named after the author, Clement Laird Vallandigham, of Dayton, OH and Windsor, Ontario.]

Resolved, That the direct interference of the military authorities of the United States in the recent elections held in Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, and Delaware was a shameful violation of the Constitution, and a repetition of such acts in the approaching election will be held as revolutionary, and resisted with all the means and power under our control.

Resolved, That the aim and object of the Democratic party is to preserve the Federal Union and the rights of the States unimpaired, [that is SLAVERY] and they hereby declare that they consider that the administrative usurpation of extraordinary and dangerous powers not granted by the Constitution — the subversion of the civil by military law in States not in insurrection; the arbitrary military arrest, imprisonment, trial, and sentence of American citizens in States where civil law exists in full force; the suppression of freedom of speech and of the press; the denial of the right of asylum; the open and avowed disregard of State rights; the employment of unusual test-oaths; and the interference with and denial of the right of the people to bear arms in their defense is calculated to prevent a restoration of the Union and the perpetuation of a Government deriving its just powers from the consent of the governed.

Resolved, That the shameful disregard of the Administration to its duty in respect to our fellow citizens who now are and long have been prisoners of war and in a suffering condition, deserves the severest reprobation on the score alike of public policy and common humanity.

Resolved, That the sympathy of the Democratic party is heartily and earnestly extended to the soldiery of our army and sailors of our navy, who are and have been in the field and on the sea under the flag of our country, and, in the events of its attaining power, they will receive all the care, protection, and regard that the brave soldiers and sailors of the republic have so nobly earned."

Of course you could counter all of the above with the statement made by Illinois Democrat Senator John Alexander Logan, who said, on the floor of the US Senate: "Though not all Democrats were traitors, Every traitor was a Democrat—though to be historically correct—he revised the record to read 'Rebel' instead of 'traitor', the two terms being synonymous to John A. 'Black Jack' Logan.

So ... if Chicagoans are too retarded to be trusted with firearms, then why are they allowed to have something far more dangerous?

Namely, the right to vote?

Vote for b-HO and kiss your ARs goodbye!

Or don't vote at all and give BHusseinO the Big Desk and kiss all your guns goodbye!

I realize that for some, voting for McLame can be akin to guzzling pond scum.
The problem with a non-vote is that with the Dems in control of Congress, it tilts every possible check and balance way, way too far to the left.
Giving Nancy, Harry, Upchucky and the BoxStein sisters free reign without the possibility of a veto is suicide.

Total control should mean total accountability. With congress critters it doesn't work that way.

---

Kristopher brings up a good point, the idiots that attend a BHusseinO rally and cheer like Moonies should be put on a short leash.
Or hung by their thumbs...whatever is easiest.

"... we know that what works in Chicago..."

Twenty people shot in one weekend is "working"? The ability of the Democrat Party to piss in the voters faces and tell them it's raining is astonishing. Democrats are purely about political correctness. Honesty is irrelevant and meaningless to them. And they want to run the country? It would be insane to allow them to do so.

I AM A LIFE MEMBER WITH THE NRA AND I GOT MY LATEST COPY OF 1st FREEDOM THE OTHER DAY. IN AN ARTICLE, OBAMA WAS ASKED THAT IF HE WERE ELECTED PRESIDENT, WOULD HE ACCEPT " ARMED " SECRET SERVICE PROTECTION? HIS ANSWERE WAS ( AND I QUOTE )" I'LL TAKE IT " !! SINCE WE PAY FOR THIS PROTECTION 24 HOURS A DAY, 7 DAYS A WEEK, 365 DAYS A YEAR, ANY PLACE IN THE WORLD, HE SHOULD ALLOW US THE RIGHT TO OWN AND USE OUR WEAPONS FOR SELF DEFENCE,HUNTING AND COLLECTING. IF HE INSISTS ON HIS PRESENT COURSE OF TAKING OUR RIGHT TO OWN GUNS AWAY, THEN WE SHOULD TAKE AWAY THE " FREE " PROTECTION AFFORDED TO HIM WHILE IN OFFICE. - TIT FOR TAT -
