I think many stayed home in 2012 because of disquitude. The drive-by press blaming Republicans for everything, when most of the crap was caused by Democrats or the "Out House"....I think alot of people are waking up. I listen to talk radio alot and I'm hearing this in the people that call in. I had to do some refreshing back in 2007 myself, but after being on here for awhile, I didn't research on the internet, I started going to the college library at Sam Houston U. in Huntsville. There's alot of pure crap floating on here. The only problem is that people on both sides believe the crap.
Many stayed home because the Rebublican party failed to run a candidate strong on econimc policy and middle of the road on social issues. A social policy moderate would have won the independent voters and the candidate would have won in a landslide.

"My excellent friend from Boylston,(Mr. Whitney,) has uttered, in the speech he has just made, many noble sentiments of love among men and peace on earth. I love peace not less ardently than my friend from Boylston. The bloodless victories of peace are as dear to me as to him. But I am not one of those men who cry peace, when there is no peace without slavery, injustice and wrong. My friend from North Brookfield,(Mr Walker,) and others, have spoken of the peace movements in England and on the continent, and of Richard Cobden and others of its leading spirits. I may be in error, but I have sometimes thought that the song which the peace movement has hymned into the ear of Europe during the past five years has made far easier the march of the legions Russia and Austria upon Hungary and Italy, and the march of the legions of France--of apostate republican France--upon Rome. While the people have listened with softened hearts to the songs of peace, their masters have disarmed them, and sent forth their increasing standing armies to crush every manifestation of freedom, progress, and popular rights. When tyranny is overthrown and freedom established; when standing armies are disbanded and the people armed for their own protection against arbitrary power; then I would write "peace" on the banners of the people and send them forth to make the tour of the world. My motto is "Liberty first--peace afterwards."

VOLUME SECOND. BOSTON: WHITE & POTTER, PRINTERS TO THE CONVENTION, 1853.](Mr. Wilson,(Feb. 16, 1812 Nov. 22, 1875), was a delegate to the state constitutional convention in 1853. He was elected to the United States Senate in 1855. He was reelected as a Republican in 1859, 1865 and 1871, and served from Jan. 31, 1855 to March 4, 1873, when he resigned to become Vice President. He was the 18th Vice President of the United States (18731875). During the Civil War, he was Chairman of the Committee on Military Affairs and the Militia, and the Committee on Military Affairs).

In some voting precincts all over the U S there were more people who voted then lived in the precinct. It is called multi voting. The corrupt Chicago politicians created it, but Obama, and his corrupt Chicago politician friends went National with it.

"The right of a citizen to bear arms, in lawful defense of himself or the State, is absolute. He does not derive it from the State government. It is one of the high powers delegated directly to the citizen, and is excepted out of the general powers of government. A law cannot be passed to infringe upon or impair it, because it is above the law, and independent of the lawmaking power."-- Cockrum v. State, 24 Tex. 394 (1859).
Even over 300 years ago, bullshit was still bullshit.
Nothing and no one is above the law. The only "absolute" right is to do whatever you want that is within the law.

Need a background check for a gun purchase, then you need one to vote.
That is a truly dumb analogy.
There is absolutely no logical basis for objection to background checks for owning a firearm. If a voter is deranged, there is litte harm. If a gun owner is deranged, well, do I have to go further?

You thik I lie, because you can't handle the truth, but most people can read, and can go to the Internet, and check out anything I say. If you think I lie why do you waste so much time reading what I write? That's dumb.

It used to be that prisoners would receive their firearms back when leaving jail/prison after having served their time. Self-preservation is the first law of nature. And no one has the authority to deprive their fellow man of that. It is the first law of nature. Anyone contending differently is an advocate for "cruel and unusual punishment". For the person is continuing to be punished even after having served their time.
Sadly, for some humans, killing is the second law of nature.

"Allowing any deranged person, with a background of violence, to own a firearm in a supposedly civilized society, renders the person supporting this idea ineligible to own a firearm, by reason of mental incapacity."

Couldn't agree more. I've had the suspicion that they have been using the principles found in the Declaration in reverse on us. That they know that people will put up with a LOT of bs before doing anything about it. Which is why they have been doing it slowly and incrementally. But the mask is coming off, or they are being revealed. The next move is up to us I suppose.
Do you also do a Woody Woodpecker impression?

Then it is up to us, and a few others I've encountered. To make sure the actual facts get out. As well as forcing the republican party to go back to its roots,(no pun intended). And stop trying to buddy up to the demonrats. And if they won't, start a new party.
Great idea! That'll keep us Dems in power for a millenium or two. Go gettem, Gunrunner!

WRONG:
"The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms shall NOT be infringed".
That means in NO way, shape, or form can that specific right be encroached upon. They were EXPRESSLY DENIED the "power". Not only under the 2nd amendment, but under the 9th, 10th, and 15th amendments as well.
Now get back in the kool-aid line.
All-beef baloney. Cite the COMPLETE second amendment, "militia" man.

And anyway, how is that a response to someone discussing the commerce clause? You're so obsessed your "god-given" right to pack a rod, you can't even see straight, not quite an asset for a gun freak.
