    If I remember correctly, Bohemian was a Ron Paul supporter. As for Reagan, he probably did make some mistakes and wasn't as perfectly clear a Conservative as some of us remember. I do believe, however, that he was the first President in a long time . . . and the last one since! . . . who'd given us back our National testicles on both the National and International arenas. Wasn't it under Reagan that Khadaffi's home was bombed, killing both his son and his determination to be an International bastard?

    I'll concede that I would have had him vote differently on those items you point out, Bo. But, tell me...who was better? Who was the better choice at that time, and who would you elect if you had the chance? Who else brought to the Oval Office table the no-******** personality that made so many Conservative Americans feel their depth of pride again? I agree that Ron Paul is certainly vociferous and determined in his Conservatism, but is he also electable? And, if not, who's the second choice, who could get the job done AND could hope to gain the office?

    There's a difference between being a "one issue" voter and being a "central issue" voter, and while 2A is enormously important to me and everybody else here...including you...I'm not so sure that it's ALL important.

    I've been given National testicles? Now there's a visual.
    Might this have been phrased a bit differently?

    And may I say that they look lovely on you!

    I know you understand that 'testicles', in this context, is a euphemism not a physiological description. You and I both know women with "balls", meant in a context of admiration for it. I was saying the same thing, gender-neutral, but trying to be a little more delicate.

    I know this is a gun forum, but on the same subject..
    Just ask an Air traffic controller or someone that worked at Caterpillar what they think of RR..
    Both lost lost of jobs due to actions of RR (I'm sure there were many more examples)

    The one good thing I can say about RR's style of leadership is that he surrounded himself with Smart people and he listened to them.. Something I don't think you can say about our last president unfortunately..

    Reagan may not have been perfect but he was far better than what we have now or have had science. He was someone our enemies feared. When he drew a line in the sand it didn't keep moving.

    Reagan WAS THE LAST STOP, The NRA & the Entire Second Amendment Community was up in arms about it BEFORE REAGAN SIGNED IT, the NRA ran TV ad's for Christ sake; I was deployed when it happened and I had time to hear about; snail-mail & get a snail-mail response from both my U.S. Senators & Representative and SOMEBODY on Reagan's behalf BEFORE Ronald Reagan signed it...

    Open Carry & Concealed Carry has been legal in this country since at least the ratification of the Second Amendment...
    Which was the re-affirmation & protection of a preexisting right we were born with...

    Society has been conditioned to be appalled, frightened and to generally get their panties in a bunch and ridicule somebody when they see any firearm or weapon in public...

    This we must overcome, because we are COMMON-SENSE FIREARM/WEAPON Legislating ourselves out of our inherent, fundamental right to defend ourselves by any means necessary, using equal or greater force than may be brought against us, any place, any time, including but not limited to the tyranny of our own government...

    IF more people were open carrying or concealed carrying any type or class of firearm, or weapon there would be a whole lot less violent crime...

    Where in the Second Amendment, does it say shall not be infringed "Except"... ?
    Nowhere, because it is unconditional...

    "The Second Amendment IS my Concealed Carry (and Open Carry) Permit" - Ted Nugent...

    "It is every citizens duty to at all times be armed, and to be trained at as early an age as possible to use said armament" - Thomas Jefferson

    "Let your firearm be your constant companion" - Thomas Jefferson.

    Not everyone is as much a pure ideolog as you are!

    You judge him in terms of the almighty versus the alternative.

    He had lots of things on his plate. He Was NOT elected to restore the RKBA of Jefferson's era, but to recover from jc's destruction of our nation.

    Why don't you run for the office on your platform?

    Great. I'm reading a gun forum where gun owners are defending members of a government that ignored the Constitution and infringed our rights.

    And somebody had the temerity to assign a restoration of vigor to our nation because of those acts.

    With friends like you I figure my remaining rights are as good as pissed away...

    The OP is right about Ronald Reagan -- and you guys need to quit making excuses for those who allow compromise to dilute the meaning of the Constitution.





    It certainly looks as though my avatar isn't a joke after all.
