    Default Social Issues

    Over recent months we have been admonished by the disciples of Dr Paul that the Republicans will/did lose the election due to their stance on social issue.
    Birth control, gay marriage etc.

    Well, the "incremental secular progressive" party has chosen to make a stand on the 2nd amendment.
    "No tragedy goes to waste"

    All you true Democrats that bought into this groups ideology, can you continue to support this?

    How do all the experts see this working out????
    Do you see any backlash at the mid terms?

    Or is this Bushs' fault???

    I am guessing there are more Democrats that are shooting sports enthusiasts than the progressives that now run the party anticipate.



    Just askin'.............

    I don't quite see at as a stand of the 2nd amendment which leads to a binary choice of guns or no guns, It is common sense gun control. Supreme court Justice Scalia has already suggested that assault weapons are not protected by the 2nd amendmend.

    A Poll in Virginia has shown that people overwhelmingly favor background checks (92%).It seems that most NRA members feel the same way. Other polls show similiar results. Stubbornly the NRA refuses to change their own position on this. If the Republicans decide to follow the NRA, the backlash will be against them I am afraid.

    background checks are already standard practice, it's called the Brady act, you cant buy or transfer a gun without it, its nothing new,don't know that anyone is disputing that,and even though the anti gunners will tell you differently, you have to go thru them at gun shows

    The gun control issue isn't a liberal/conservative or a Democrat/Republican issue. The fault line is urban/rural. The extremists on both sides of the issue are making matters worse. It is rapidly devolving into a national screaming match which is exactly what we don't need at this point. We have a serious problem with random gun violence. We had 13 mass shootings in 2012. What we need for all of us to start listening to each other and arriving at a solution to this dilemma.

    While I'm not a liberal, I think I can answer this question. Most certainly liberals will support the destruction of the Constitution and the Second Amendment. Guaranteed.

    Liberalism is a mental attitude disease that manifests itself in many different ways. Hatred, guilt, vindictiveness, implacability, bitterness and jealousy to name just a few. Once the disease takes hold it's almost impossible to cure, and the disease loves the company of others. There's no way that anyone with this awful, mental attitude sickness could ever stand up against tyranny and the destruction of our Constitution.

    So while Senator Feinstein lifts her skirt, squats and urinates on the Constitution, liberals cheer her and support her. And when Dear Leader attempts an end around the Constitution with an Executive Order, the diseased ones back him 100%.

    Both Hitler and Stalin were big advocates of gun control. I've often wondered if given the chance, would a liberal volunteer to go back in time to Germany circa the 1930's with a truck load of fully operational Glocks, and hand out these 'guns' to all the Jews who were living in Germany at the time. Sadly, I think I know the answer.

    We live in Cuba now.
