    Just saying,

    You are making a joke, right Terri? I mean, that last line is a real leg-slapper....you expect the Oracle of Ihop to 'THINK'????

    Why would he suddenly start now?

    And vote for them/send them financial support in order for them to do so?

    Amazing!
    My comment is based on the fact that in supporting a politician or a political group, there are always elements of compromise. For those who seek to lead voters around by their noses, the fundamental strategy is to convince your intended audience to focus on a "wedge" issue so that they will ignore all the trash that might be linked to it. Life vs Choice and Guns vs Gun Control are both wedge issues used brilliantly by both sides to get people to stop thinking. While those issues are both important to me, neither is important enough to outweigh all other considerations.

    for those that are somewhat sympathetic to gun control, it sure is going to be hard to shoot that pheasant flyer in the last series using the Thunder 1000 simulator...I like my chances at bringing it down with my Remington 1100

    I do.

    And if I had to pick between two candidates who were equal except for the fact that one was pro-choice, anti-gun, and the other was pro-gun and anti choice, I would go with the first.

    We are not at risk in the current political environment or seeing any significant gun control adopted, but we are at risk of having the government decide to begin telling people that they cannot make their own reproductive decisions without government approval. My primary interest in having citizen ownership of guns is to act as a deterrent against just that type of government overreaching.

    If the political climate were reversed, my vote would flip accordingly. Quite frankly I believe ideologues are the enemy of democracy. I don't care it the ideology is left or right, I will vote for pragmatists instead. In the 60's and 70,s, that attitude made me the "enemy" (in their eyes) of the left. Today, it makes me the "enemy" (in their eyes) of the right. I don't have much affection for either.

    If by anti choice you mean pro life, then we'll never need to be concerned/hopeful you'd go with the "flip".

    Dem's will always lean pro choice/anti gun....interestingly, that's the only "choice" they want you or I to have.

    Guess again, Yardley. You don't have a clue what "pragmatism" is...what you 'think' it is, in anyone else's eyes, it's known as hypocrisy. And you can imagine how much affection we have for your views.
