  •  yep...and their influence is fading... (3+ / 0-)

    of the 26 senate races in 2012 with NRA's 'A' rated candidates...20 lost.

    also they have been gaming the system...they pick only candidates they know will win...drop a few bucks in...and say, "look we won"...this causes politicians to needlessly fear them.

    there has already been a study on this...and a new one will be coming out sometime this summer.  


    We are not broke, we are being robbed.

      is being exposed. The emperor certainly has no clothes to cover the fact that people will eventually triumph over corporate profit.

        First recall in the 137 history of Colorado.
        A candidate that came out in support of gun control managed to lose to someone that didn't even have the support of his own party......

        Oh, yeah. Totally exposed. And the NRA is powerful because of $5,000........
        Way to give reality the finger.

        Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
