  •  Can it not be said that the NRA mirrors the GOP... (0+ / 0-)

    in that they both allow spokesmen who would be better as foot soldiers.  Some people are leaders, some are foot soldiers and some are unfortunately fodder for the cannon...  la pierre, malkin, coulter, limbaugh and the likes and there are many many more do more harm that good for their cause.

    There is something strange about how this continues to play out.  I know this has been buried as a dead horse... but the desparation of the GOP was seen in them having nothing better to offer than Bush...  Katherine Harris put them in a hole through trickery that they have yet to get beyond.  

    It would seem that they felt that they could put this kind of person in office and run by committee with Karl Rover and the rest.  Trickery always ends up costing the user there of.  And it has been a comedy of errors every since...

    It seems as if the NRA who has power is willing to see it slid away.  They forget that their members do have a human side also.  They try to keep their mouth frothed and foaming with this liberty and 2nd amendment crap as if liberty can be taken by taking guns.  Nor can it be kept by armed citizens.  It takes sane and courageous people who can reason with the issues of the time.  

    The current NRA machine is running strictly on fear.  Fear is never a good fuel for any movement...
