    Another +1 for Palin.

    I am getting the horse ahead of the cart BUT....

    IMHO McCain will only run for 1 term. He will be 76 in 2012. If he has any health issues this term and/or a major scare (being rushed to hospital) the public will be against a second term.

    I think McCain is looking to set Palin up for a run away victory in 2012. Possibly start a "reformist republican" movement.

    McCain +2 terms of Palin = 12 years to appoint Justices. SCOTUS likely will be moved to the right 2, 3 or maybe even 4 justices. The court will be much younger and likely stay that way for 10-20 years.

    Now that is a lasting contribution.
    McCain in 2008. A vote for ANYONE else is a vote for Obama. Vote 3rd party, don't vote, or write in but when Obama is pushing a RKBA holocuast (bans, ammo limits, microstamping, outlawing rifle ammo, ballistic databases, national registrations) for the next 8 years you will have nobody to blame but yourself.

    For me it comes down to, Do I want more laws, more government intervention and "sensible" gun control? Or do I want to tolerate the laws that are inplace, tolerate some government intervention, and tolerate the gun laws that are in place with the hopes of gaining the ground in the right direction. I'll take the later, the lesser of to evils and vote for McCain.

    Grumble, Grumble . . .

    We were off to a pretty good start here.

    Thanks, wacki, for the concept and for pushing actual activism.

    Now, then.

    Holy fish.

    I'm gonna have to go back through this thread and excise the more absurd and offensive posts, but I don't think this one will return to the rails.

    Once upon a time, THR had a Round Table forum. A place where the range of permitted topics was pretty wide.

    It got pretty unruly, and it distracted from the primary mission of the board, which was, and is, the discussion and dissemination of information having to do with responsible ownership and use of firearms.

    Given that it was eventually unmanageable, in the context of a gun forum, it was moved. The new site lives on the same server, is hosted by the same guy, is owned by the same guy, and is -- or was originally -- populated by the same folks that frequented THR.

    There was a certain amount of hand wringing and teeth gnashing about it, but the noise quotient dropped significantly here at THR.

    THR did, however, continue to host a Legal & Political forum. Which, as politics became increasingly nasty, became increasingly unmanageable, as an aspect of a gun forum.

    So, in time, it, too, was moved. It, too, is now on the same server as the material that used to be The Round Table here.


    Because of the continuing assault on gun ownership, it was deemed appropriate to create a VERY NARROWLY FOCUSED sub-forum to handle the business of Second Amendment Activism.

    Not the discussion of the politics and principles of gun ownership: ON THR, IT IS TAKEN AS READ THAT GUN OWNERSHIP IS A RIGHT AND PART OF THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT OF SELF DEFENSE.

    Think about it. We, here at THR, don't WONDER if gun ownership is a right, we KNOW it, we apprehend and comprehend it, we assume it as fundamental to THR's existence.

    THR is for people who already get that, or who are willing to learn about it, or who want to get better at it, or who want to brag a little about how well they're doing at it, or who want to show off a little.

    Activism is a place where we plan and promote ACTION for preserving that right.

    It's hard for even rational people to engage in a dispassionate discussion of the crime of depriving citizens of their rights, in fact, ESPECIALLY hard for a rational person to avoid anger in the face of the dishonesty required to disarm and enslave a population.

    And we really, really understand that.

    Thing is, that passion and anger and frustration . . . leads to a reduction of civility here. People start calling each other names and threatening each other.

    How do I know? I have a key to the archive vaults. There's some very corrosive stuff stored there.

    However. Knowing that these these WILL be discussed and, actually, MUST be discussed, the forum's founders, in their wisdom, provided a place for just that.

    So, wacki, if you want to start another thread on this, please do.

    Rest of you . . . take it outside.

    I'll be close this one now.

    Expect to see a few posts disappear.
