I'm going to be blunt.
When I stood in the booth in 2008 and entered my vote for McCain, I made a vow to myself that this would be the *LAST* time I voted "lesser of two evils" as I had for my entire adult life.
Though I didn't start as a supporter, seeing how the media and the RNC has abused Ron Paul caused me to research him and become a RP supporter.
It's painfully obvious now that he'll never be allowed to win, so (as much as it pains me to say it) I decided a while back that I was going to vote for Obama.
- I no longer believe we're going to be able to vote our way out of this mess.
- I could not in good conscience vote for anyone left on the "R" ticket - LEAST of all mitt-for-brains robamaney, who TPTB have apparently decided to ram down our throats whether we want him or not.
- A "RINO" win would lull the sheeple back to sleep ("We WON! What a RELIEF!") but do nothing to roll back all of the abuses of recent decades - we'd be better off with Obama because NOBODY would be able to sleep through what we know he will do!
- Since a total economic and governmental collapse seems inevitable, we might as well just get it over with!
Frankly Newt, I have a LOT of problems with your history. You have in the past been little better than any other RINO, and frankly I know when a politician is lying because HIS LIPS ARE MOVING, ergo I don't place ANY faith in campaign promises -- I've seen entirely too much.
I don't care what you say - I care what you DO, and HAVE DONE - and ALL of the Retardlicans, INCLUDING you, have done much that frankly makes me SICK!
So why am I here, writing this?
I just finished watching your "NRA" speech, and the things you said therein have convinced me that I *MAY* be wrong about you.
This was no small feat - and for those who haven't seen it, here's the speech to which I refer:
*IF* you really are who you now claim to be, then you may be the only candidate (with a realistic possibility of getting the nomination) who can prevent what appears to otherwise be inevitable.
*IF* you are serious about your support for the Constitution - ESPECIALLY the 2nd Amendment, then there are two things you need to do.
*IF* you do these things, I will not only vote for you, but I'll become a near-full-time proponent, and work to convince others to vote for you as well.
Further, I can pretty much guarantee that *IF* you do these things, you can guarantee a win in November by mobilizing MILLIONS like me who otherwise would have either just stayed home or cast a "let's get this crap over with" vote for The Enemy.
What are these two things?
- For those who
may not know, Federal law allows private ownership of full-auto
firearms, and always has, PROVIDED the buyer passes a full, extensive
FBI fingerprint and background check and pays a transfer tax. In 1986
however, in an illegal and illegitimate manner, an amendment was stuck
on to other legislation which LIMITED private ownership of any full-auto
firearms made BEFORE (IIRC) May of 1986.
The CSPAN video clearly shows that this was not properly done and thus should be moot and void, however it has become accepted law. All this has accomplished is to drive the cost of such arms through the roof by limiting ownership to a fixed and dwindling (as they wear out) supply.
And (of course) the NRA has done NOTHING to undo this travesty, despite their vociferous promises at the time (speaking of "RINOs"...)...
Further, if you are serious about your support for our Constitution and our 2nd Amendment, then you KNOW that the intent of the 2A was to ensure that We The People could possess the same arms used by our military - hence the "well regulated (ie: well trained and equipped) militia" statement which applies to ALL CITIZENS as we are still by law ALL part of the "unorganized militia."
Both the FBI and ATF Directors have in the past gone on record saying that repealing this "post-86 ban" would have no effect on crime - only TWO lawfully-owned FA-arms have been used in crimes in the past ~80 years, and one of those was a cop who had access to departmental arms!
Ergo, there is NOTHING to be lost by repealing this ban - and I GUARANTEE that a *GENUINE* promise to do so would earn you the votes of MILLIONS of firearms enthusiasts like myself!
The second one is much easier to explain.
- *IF* you are serious about your support for our Constitution, then you should have no problems in promising to veto any legislation not accompanied by a clear statement referencing which part of the Constitution (and **NOT** the ridiculous "commerce" or "general-welfare" nonsense!) authorizes CONgress to take that action and pass that law.
To recap, you can GUARANTEE yourself my full-time work on your behalf, along with MILLIONS of other votes, by promising to (1) repeal the unlawful "post-86 full-auto ban" and (2) only sign legislation with a Constitutional basis!
So... You're running out of time - and WE'RE WAITING!
I don't know how to get this to him, or to get his attention, but if anyone should happen to read this who DOES know how to get it to him, I would welcome your assistance!
