    If he wants a snowball's chance at a second term he'll keep his executive stick far away from the 2nd Amendment.

    Nothing will come of this. It's all empty political posturing (which seems to be a pattern with this president). People really have stopped listening to anything he says.

    The Constitution melts away not only at the hands of Congress but also by Executive Order. When are people going to wake up?

    How about if he does anything to our 2A rights we rush the white house and run him out of Washington on a rail.

    sound good?

    Sure. Yeah. Good luck with that. [​IMG]

    In the meantime, the adults will be formulating a response based on actual policy decisions, instead of making useless posts on the internet.

    I wouldn't call it empty political posturing, he has already proven that he isn't opposed to issuing executive orders to bypass congress. He seems to like to issue them when some other big news story is happening, so nobody notices.

    When, and if, any ever do materialize. So far, it's just music for the choir.

    In the meantime, we run around playing, "Obama's gonna ban guns -- see, I told you so!" Stress and bile without a focus or a goal.

    I have to ask everybody something....

    What's worse running Obama out on a rail?

    The deaths of U.S. police,citizens,and Mexican police and citizens because of the current adminstrations actions?

    My choice will be to use the voting booth as well as millions of others and fire him.

    From the article:
    Short? Much like everything else Obama has set out to accomplish.

    Because there is no viable plan in place, nor will there be. If you have a developed plan you discuss it, not hide behind I'll get back to you.

    This is the dangerous part. We've discussed prohibited possessors, and I have a feeling the mental health community is about to get involved. Also as discussed past drug use within 5 years will more than likely be a target.

    These statements conflict.

    The same group that lost major support from 73 Mayors once they found out the BS that Bloomber was trying to pull?

    Your post was not criticized because the other posters want Obama to remain in office, but because it was directionless posturing instead of activism which includes actions, a goal, and a plan of action. "Run out on a rail" or "tar and feather" are useless phrases, the left might find a way to even make them sound borderline threatening. Simply "Vote in 2012 to remove Obama from office" is a more constructive, adult way of phrasing your sentiment, which I would guess 99.5% of the forum agrees with.

    I think it's timely and pertinent.

    Oh, yeah, don't look at this as "mission creep". It's a "creeping mission." That's what progressivism is.

    That's why I said it was a good point to vote him out instead.

    (my frustrations got the better of me guys and gals I would like to offer an apology)





    The whole issue of the ATF selling the cartels weapons makes me more than a little sick to my stomach to say the least.

    While I wish the pretender a long life (in abject poverty with all America despising his very name), I do intend to try talking as many friends, family and co-workers as possible into voting him out of the Big Chair. Gather facts and truth, and present your case to your folks..... we CAN take back this nation, if we ALL come together.

    Since politics are suddenly allowed apparently i'll respond to this comment:

    "I wouldn't call it empty political posturing, he has already proven that he isn't opposed to issuing executive orders to bypass congress. He seems to like to issue them when some other big news story is happening, so nobody notices."

    His predecessor took executive order abuse to an unprecedented level.

    Not true, executive orders are subject to constitutional scrutiny and can be struck down by the Supreme Court.

    The Republic is far, far more important than the lives of some US police, citizens and Mexican police and citizens.

    And those lives are very important.

    Voting him out is fine, but someone "real" is going to have to step up. Right now it looks like the clownshow it always turns out to be.

    So far Obama has been okay, compared to Clinton. I can carry in parks now under Obama; under Clinton I had to pay $100+ for Glock magazines and use stupid thumbhole stocks. Under Clinton, a lot of people got turned into felons for cosmetic features on weapons they bought unaware the serial number was "post ban" and not "pre ban".

    So far Obama has been okay. But if he gets re-elected... Well then it is all about "legacy" instead of "re-election". Things can and will change. He can't get re-elected if he pulls a Clintion gun ban. He can pull a Clinton gun ban if he thinks that goes well with his legacy. He's known to chum with the anti's, so this may be his long term goal. If the dems get the house back, and right now they stand a chance because the repubs are helping them more than anyone else can, then this could be a real thing.

    Best thing, really, is to keep them divided. If we have a repub pres., we need a dem congress, vice versa, etc. Because 2A isn't the only thing at stake here... We have to play them better than they play us, and voting out the turds as well as the suspects is the only way to do it. Right now they are divided on the economy thing. If we had a repub pres., they'd gut SS, medicaid, cut taxes on the rich, etc., but if we had a dem congress, they'd ban everything they could and run up the debt higher than it is. Right now, they are divided and are trying to butt heads, they are running towards a cliff with our livelihoods at stake and both are playing chicken, but at some point and hopefully before the whole thing collapses, they will come to a sensible compromise. Which is why they should be divided. That is part of how our democracy works and was intended this way by the founding fellows.

    Right now, unless some better candidates come foward, I still have to go with Obama and a divided house. We need a real shiner that speaks truth and follows through in the first term in order to deserve the house and senate at his or her disposal. I think Obama has been better than Bush, but he isn't "the one" and frankly, a second term bothers me, at least as much as the uncertainty of any of the other possible candidates.
