I'm a conservative guy. These are distinctly not conservative times. I'm of a mind that America can not continue down the path we are now on and remain America for much longer. The attacks by this administration in particular notwithstanding, there has been a rising swell of progressive/moral relative politics over the past 4 generations...within the last 2 generations the process dramatically accelerated, and over the last 15 months we are in free fall...our Constitution is being plowed under. What is it with the rule here that politics may not be discussed unless they are directly related to firearms and firearms issues? Are we to simply ignore issues until only violent upheaval is all that remains to us? Is the notion of talking until all other avenues of recourse are exhausted lost on this forum? I'm a complete new guy here and I can sure be convinced to take a walk (it is, after all, still a free country and this is a private gig here. You set your own rules) but the way you guys run this debate forum is really odd in my book. The RKBA is the teeth but there are whole other sections of our Constitution being trampled beside that one. I don't think we should ignore or limit debate on any of it. Progs present a wide front and we need to meet them wherever we find them.
