jody (1957 posts) May-16-03, 03:07 PM (ET) Reply to post #13 16. You say "Just look at who the NRA supports. " In my state, the NRA gave the Democratic candidate for Governor an "A+" rating and the Republican an "A" rating. The NRA also gave Democratic and Republican candidates the same rating if both candidates had the same position on the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (RKBA). The Republican Party does control the NRA leadership and uses it effectively as a special interest lobby. In states where the overwhelming majority of the voters are pro RKBA, Democratis candidates successfully neturalize the NRA effect by campaigning on a strong pro-RKBA plank. The Democratic Party plank on guns is poorly written, however it says "Strong and Sensible Gun Laws. A shocking level of gun violence on our streets and in our schools has shown America the need to keep guns away from those who shouldn't have them - in ways that respect the rights of hunters, sportsmen, and legitimate gun owners." Moreover, several state Dem Parties have pro-RKBA planks in their platforms. [red]I don't know where people get the notion that the Democratic Party intends to ban and confiscate all guns.[/red]

Actually the police are here to protect the status quo LAST EDITED ON May-16-03 AT 03:00 PM (ET) And this means, spying on non-violent protesters, targeting protesters with camcorders for arrest, and placing phony charges on them. And in the case of the Oakland Dock protests: firing tear gas, sting balls, wooden bullets, rubber bullets, metal shot bags for two whole hours as the non-violent protesters were just trying to get away. [red]I’d love to have a society without guns – as long as the police and military don’t have any either -- but that ain’t happening anytime soon. As for actually shooting someone, I doubt that would be easy for me. Violence makes me really really emotionally upset – I had a hard time keeping composer seeing the police put people in pain compliance holds during the protests.[/red]

here is a test to counter this statement A young teenage girl was about to finish her first year of college. She considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat but her father was a rather staunch Republican. One day she was challenging her father on his beliefs and his opposition to taxes and welfare programs. He stopped her and asked her how she was doing in school. She answered that she had a 4.0 GPA but it was really tough. She had to study all the time, never had time to go out and party. She didn't have time for a boyfriend and didn't really have many college friends because of spending all her time studying. He asked, "How is your friend Mary." She replied that Mary was barely getting by. She had a 2.0 GPA, never studied, but was very popular on campus, went to all the parties all the time. Why she often didn't show up for classes because she was hung over. Dad then asked his daughter why she didn't go to the Dean's office and ask why she couldn't take 1.0 off her 4.0 and give it to her friend who only had a 2.0. That way they would both have a 3.0 GPA. The daughter angrily fired back, "That wouldn't be fair, I worked really hard for mine and Mary has done nothing". The father slowly smiled and said, "Welcome to the Republican Party".

Nahh... It has been carefully proven that excessive exposure to rational thought will cause the average Democrat's head to explode. Because of the mess that this creates, all ISPs have implemented programs that make ar15.com and other gunsites invisible to DU posters (unless they had accounts at those sites first, which would make them infiltrators).

I like this one: [b]Jokerman (179 posts) May-16-03, 02:13 PM (ET) 8. Another former advocate of gun control. I can honestly say that my most of my political opinions have remained unchanged during my adult years. One notable exception is gun control. Twenty years ago I advocated confiscating and destroying all handguns, automatic and semi-automatic weapons. That was when I still had the naïve idea that the government was good, honest and trustworthy. As the Reagan years dragged on and the War On Drugs gained momentum, my trust in the government gradually eroded. Even during the Clinton years I felt the slide towards an oppressive government may have slowed but it didn’t stop. Now with the neo-con fascists running the show, I’ve come to embrace the saying “love your country, fear your government”. I now believe that the second amendment wasn’t included so that we could protect ourselves from each other but so that we could protect ourselves from a government gone mad with power. I still would like to think that there are ways to keep guns out of the hands of criminals but I no longer feel that turning all weapons over to the government is a sound idea.[/b]

No, they don't. A lot of liberals ignore that facism grew out of socalism. On a side note, I was suprised as hell when my History 002 teacher at PSU spent a class and a half on that fact when we hit the 1920s.

Check out that poster's name: headlouse. Is that apt or what? "free" healthcare, "free" college education, "free" housing and food to anyone who wants it. Scumbag parasite liberals. Nothing is "free". These guys just redefine who pays for these things (namely, NOT THEM). I was just reading an [url=http://www.nationalreview.com/derbyshire/derbyshire051903.asp]article[/url] about San Francisco's homeless problem which, if you haven't been there lately, defies belief. He mentions the UN Plaza, which is a magnificent and majestic public space that is filled with homeless and smelled like an open sewer when I visited there. Turns out San Franciscans give $400 a month to each and every homeless person who wants it. No questions asked, hard cash. Then they wonder why with such generosity and compassion, why do the numbers of homeless keep growing? So fucking clueless.
