Thread: Best 2nd amendment protection candidate

  1. Best 2nd amendment protection candidate

    If one were to completely ignore all other political issues, and if one only considers the 2nd amendment, who are our best candidates (to date) running??? (remember, I asked about 2nd amendment, try to ignore any other issues no matter how passionate you may feel about them) Thanks!

    For me, if answering your question is the only concern, nuff said. And as a bonus she is much better looking than the RINO Romney.
    Unfortunately she doesn't seem to hold the numbers that will make her a viable candidate come election time.

    Yes, that may be comming true. What is sad to me is that many will jump on whoever's bandwagon is gaining ground rather than voting for who they think is best. I heard a discussion about this very topic last night on talk radio. The most conservative candidate, who will fight to repeal Obamacare (government growth and economic suicide care), who will fight to reduce government's negative impact on small business, who will therefore grow jobs and improve our economy, who will strengthen our militiary, restore respect to our nations highest office and who will likely be a cure for our current marxist puppet will probably not be a front runner.

    Instead, we may get another McCain via Romney. However, I simply wanted to answer the original question asked. Maybe I'm still hoping she will gain momentum?

  6. Ron Paul the strict constitutionalist. Obviously. The difference between him and the other corporate puppets is that he has 30 years of consistency.

  7. So the big question is: If your preferred candidate makes it through the primary, they won't stand much chance in the primary. So... Do you try to get someone you REALLY like, who will lose to someone you really DON'T like; or do you hold your nose and accept someone that can get elected but is "less bad" than the opposition candidate?

    Yes, I've felt that way for years... I wish we had either a functioning many-party system where the Libertarian, Green, Constitutional, etc, candidates all have a serious chance - and where politicians didn't have to choose "D" or "R" and pander to parts of each's "base" that they don't agree with; or a "no party" system with instant-runoff voting where all the candidates run in one single big election. But I'm also a proponent of 100% publicly-funded elections, with SMALL budgets, and NO outside money. The candidates get a set amount of money, based on what office they're going for, and that's it. All they have to do is get enough signatures to qualify for the ballot. If Jimmy "The Rent is Too Damn High" McMillan can get enough signatures to qualify for the presidential ballot, he would have the same amount of money at his disposal as if Warren Buffett decided to run.

  8. What about Perry/Bachman? He carry's and Michelle is quite ok with it also.

    Ed, when ever I see your post I see communism/democrat. You have no substance as a communist/ democrat.

    Perry 'seems' (for the moment) a decent 2nd amendment advocate but time will tell but I hate the guy's stand on subsidizing illegals' education and his weak stand on illegal immigration and refusal to build that wall. As for Romney, I trust him about as far as I can throw him. As for Ron Paul, he's an idiot who wants to legalize drugs and quit fighting terrorists on their own ground. I like Cain (a lot) so far but I've yet to hear anything definitive on his true 2nd amendment stand

    If (big if) Bachman wins the nomination, I'll gladly support her, otherwise, I will indeed hold my nose and vote for ABO (Anybody But Obummer).

    1. While I do know a few Democrats who consider themselves "socialists", including very pro-gun-rights ones, I am nowhere near a socialist, much less a communist. I am always amazed at people who claim that mainstream Democrats are communists. Have you forgotten what ACTUAL communism is already?

    2. Someone who is *SO* partisan that they see a political party label applied to someone and IMMEDIATELY dismiss their opinions is a frightening thing. On either side. I rebuke Democrat friends the same way who just see a name with an (R) after it has entered a political race, and immediately dismiss the person. Dismissing someone's views, their RIGHT to their views, solely because of their beliefs, is a very dangerous road to go down. That is the beginning of demonization, which is what leads to ACTUAL civil wars. And while Andrew Breitbart may be happy for a real civil war to come, claiming that Republicans have "got the guns," he'll be in for a rude awakening if it actually happens - there are PLENTY of left-wingers with guns, too.
