You know, you only get one spin on this planet. I believe in the 2nd amendment. I want our rights to FLOURISH during my lifetime. One way to go is to find a politician who represents my ideas and support his campaign. That's one way to go. Another way to go is to gather small to medium political contributors who want their 2nd amendment rights to grow, and aggregate that power into something that is enough to drive a politician into power. The difference is that in the first case, the people have to beg for their rights. In the second case, the politicians have to beg for the money. It's more work to make the second way happen. We have to write the legislation ourselves. We have to pay a Senator to shop our ideas and they might not honestly be behind having the People run the legislature. We need a lawyer to write legislation. We need an accountant to sign the checks. If there are 500 guys who have $500 to contribute on an annual basis to a fund that is designed to BUY A SENATOR, we could fund a filibuster. That's a total of $250K. The entire vitamin industry spends that kind of money to keep vitamins unregulated. Imagine being one of 500 people who can cast their ballot to decide which Senator gets the money. This is a concentration of power. For example, I would like to CCW in Washington. My favorite movie theater is in Washington, but I can't carry there because Washington does not recognize my Oregon CCW permit. I would like Washingtonians to be able to carry in Oregon. I have friends from Washington who can't carry in Oregon. Same with Idaho and Montana. I would like to have my hand on the handle of the whip that drives a Senator to move legislation forward to expand our natural 2nd amendment rights. That's what I want. I want to find 499 other guys who can throw $500 into the kitty to make this happen for ourselves. If you want to be one of those 500 guys, we will find each other. Tomorrow, I will have my favorite Carhartt hickory on and have a notebook on hand to gather contact information. It looks like buying a table at one of these events is about $60. I'm going to figure out how to buy table space at the next one and see what happens from here.
