Are You Smarter Than A Politician?
Indianapolis, IN –-(AmmoLand.com)- I can't speak for everyone who lives in this country, but I'll bet all those who receive these e-mails are and we now have nearly 500 direct recipients on our e-mail list. It's the most delusional politician who has the frame of mind that they know more that those whom they are to serve.
Be it a former sheriff from Indiana or a third rate comedian from Minnesota these and many like them seem to be afflicted with the belief that just by virtue of being the person who won an election they automatically are bestowed with an endless display of imaginary diplomas and degrees that somehow make them qualified to make decisions that affect the personal lives of the masses.
Last week I encountered our Indiana state senator who represents the district we live in. I reminded him that he has a standing invitation to attend a 2nd Amendment Patriot meeting. I have offered him and our state representative the same invitation since they've held office. We still are waiting.
During the conversation the senator mentioned that he could never support a carry on campus. He must have told me that a half a dozen times over the years. He has made it clear that he could not support any legislation that would allow citizens to have the ability to protect themselves under the Second Amendment in areas he deems off limits to guns. However, he was quick to mention that this past General Assembly he did vote for Sen. Nugent's SB. 11 which would have allowed carry to the work place.
That was the second time he was quick to announce that. The first was earlier this year at a Meet Your Legislator meeting. At the time I let him know that it was curious that out of the 8 senators who voted against that bill his name was not on the list.
I knew then why he voted for the bill and while we were speaking last Friday he accidentally let it slip when he again told me he voted for that bill. After he so proudly told me of his vote I stated to him that Speaker of the House, Pat Bauer, had no intention of allowing that bill to get a hearing in the Democrat controlled House. The senator quickly acknowledged in his own words,” I know”, but with the look of a deer in the headlights he immediately followed with, “but I did vote for it”.
He voted for it because his cronies at the statehouse assured him that the bill would go nowhere but it would allow him to get a favorable rating from the NRA. We're going to see this posturing procedure unfold in this coming election and I will have some specifics to report on this in the near future.
This senator like so many other legislators must have the impression that we are all country bumpkins. We've even seen this lately on the news where some legislators demonstrate the pompous and impudent attitudes to their constituents.
Dear people this is our time coming. Here in Indiana and other states across the country the ritual of another election cycle has begun. This is our watch. It is our assignment to begin a change that no one can turn back.
Some people have announced their candidacy for office and some incumbents are getting ready to fight to hold those offices. What is our duty? What is our obligation?
First, we're obliged to know all we can about those who have put themselves in play. We need people of our choosing to remain in office or to replace those who need to be replaced in the worst way.
Don't let any political party or political strategist make that selection for you! It's your call and you make it. We need people that have some armor plating. We need people that have the leather to stand up to the liberals that have driven this country down to the level we're now swimming in.
We can't afford to elect some milk toast ambiguous individual to replace some milk toast ambiguous incumbent. There are hard charging people out there who say what they mean and don't have any inhibitions about putting their words into action.
It's your job to find them and if you're one of them then it's your duty to step up. Walk with purpose. Hold your head high. Be proud and stand tall. Step up to the line and if the opposition wants to call our hand then lets deal them a defeat, a devastating defeat, one they can tell their grand-kids about!
I hope all those who read this article will send it around the country and get folks to sign on.Jim and Margie
