    Maybe this comment isn't for this venue, but does anyone else find it interesting that guys like Bloomberg and Daley stand up for First Amendment rights but want nothing to do with supporting the Second? These are the guys who would rather allow individuals to produce obscene materials and build offensive monuments in sensitive areas than allow individuals the means to defend themselves against all enemies foreign and domestic. Maybe this is the forum for this; as in something those of us who want to do something in the political arena can use for information to remind people who they vote into office and what they give up by doing so.

    Big city political machines exist because the majority of city voters just love them. Nothing is going to change in Chicago or IL any time soon because the voters are not going to change.

    Big City Politics = Fear Tactics. Keep the sheeple believing you're their only hope and they'll vote for you over and over again. Kennedy, Reid, Daley, etc. All those lifer's in politics have to be the best salesmen you've ever seen.

    The big thing would be to find an effective way to make it clear to any candidate that the RKBA crowd expects to not have any more predatory laws placed against them, and will be incredibly active through the campaign and through their office position (and hopefully everyone follows through on it, this is where the real activism comes into play).

    It's one thing to posture to represenatives...heck, I'm great at that...I can bologna my way through a tiger pit (my job is 30% softening the customer up so they go from being angry to happy even though their problem is still there). However, it's in getting enough manpower to move the boulder that the real win will come about...it's making them realize how much flex those political muscles have in this crowd.
