    Why? Because you won't see any Democrats going after him. Not one.

    Vote Democrat, you liberal gun enthusiasts! :nuts:

    I am a Democrat and a liberal and I want to see Holder go down in flames. Any time he says they have the right to enact the death penalty on an American without putting that individual in front of his peers to me is wrong. We are only entittled to due process by a group of individuals that the accused will never see is wrong. The process of holding Holder in contempt I fully support.

    And I might just vote liberal if Romney doesnt get his act together.

    I hate the damn stereotype that all Democrats are anti-gun. There are anti-gun democrats, but not all democrats are anti-gun.

    Each political party has its pet peeves. Ron Paul hates the 16th amendment. He claims to defend the constitution, except for the 16th amendment that is IN the constitution because it involves taxation. We all cherry pick what we like and don't like about this country, I just happen to like everything in the constitution, not just the 2nd and 10th amendment that Republicans only care at all about.

    Do you understand why Ron Paul wants to do away with the 16th Amendment? It took away Congress' constitutional ability to coin currency and gave it to a bunch of international bankers. Now, we use Fed debt notes instead of US dollars and have to pay interest to the Fed to borrow those fed notes. Then along comes the IRS, the Fed's collection agency, to shake us down to make sure the interest gets paid on the debt notes. As long as Fed debt notes are in circulation, the interest payments pile up.

    On top of all of this, the 16th Amendment was not properly ratified, and should not be a part of the Constitution. If you need more proof, you can call the National Archives and get certified copies of the ratification papers to prove it, as I did.

    Ron Paul is right on this one; all other presidential candidates are in with or scared of the Fed. Please read G. Edward Griffin's "The Creature from Jeckyll Island" for details.

    Looks like one more thing Holder will have in common with Reno (besides both being men.)

    Please keep it focused guys. The thread is about the potential contempt charges on Holder because of the Fast and Furious investigation.

    Please don't let this thread devolve into a Republican vs. Democrat or Progressive vs. Conservative thread.

    Thanks.

    I really wish the news story hadn't been named like that, it shouldn't be just a Republican thing! But the news media (if they report it at all) keeps making it out that the Fast & Furious is politically motivated by the Repubs.

    Bohner is not on board. He has to go. Every compromise he makes he gives way too much.

    You all actually still think there is a difference between the parties? And you actually think this contempt thing is any more painful for Holder than a Suplex would be for a pro wrestler?

    Even if you're still in your twenties it's sad.

    The thing that really gets me is how a government employee can plead the fifth on something directly related to his job and still retain said job. He is being asked directly to be accountable for the position he holds and is refusing to do so. How many of you could do that in your jobs and still have one tomorrow? I understand that he has rights, but he also is answerable to the position he holds.

    Well honestly, when was the last time that anybody could remember a Republican introducing ANY kind of gun law? Everytime you see a new gun law it is always brought to the table by the Democrats. I am neither Dem or Repub. Here is how I vote. The single most important issue for me when voting IS my 2nd amendment rights. Without the 2nd amendment, the constitution means absolutely nothing. The 2nd amendment IS the back bone of the constitution. You take the 2nd amendment away and everything else in that document means zilch. There are some thing I do not agree with on the Republican side, but the Republicans are not trying to take my guns. If the person is Libertarian it does not matter. If a certain candidate is for my 2nd amendment rights, they have my vote. That means more to me than anything else.

    I agree with that. I also agree with less than 20% of what the Repubs do and exactly 0% of what the Dems do, am not a member of any party, hate presidential elections because I always end up voting against someone instead of for someone, and bitterly disagree with the American Left. Also, I want the police to use profiling as much as they see fit. Why? Because it works.

    About the topic at hand, Eric Holder, I would love to see him forced to resign. You see, it matters not if there is a R or a D or a L next to someone's name. The law is the law, nobody is above it. Pleading the 5th is his right, if it comes to that, but he still has to go. No confidence = no position of authority. It's that simple.

    Any administration, of either party, that practices deception, evasion, corruption and abuse of power should not be tolerated by the electorate.

    The top of the leadership ladder dictates the tone and sets the standards.

    IMHO, this administration is rotten from the top down. Eric Holder is nothing but a puppet. The puppeteer is who is ultimately responsible - must go in November.

    No doubt that the "He will make my house payment and put gas in my car" crowd will still back this disaster of an administration for another term. I'm hopeful that the others that were fooled in supporting him will realize their mistake and reverse course.

    Bush was such a disaster, that I don't think the same party that put him into office for 8 years straight, should of been rewarded with 4 more years. Furthermore the "tax cuts solve everything argument" we've been trying since 1981, its only ballooned the debt. We have had a strong economy without low taxes in the past. I think its an argument that has been proven baseless and completely false, but come every 4 years, the Republican front runner always has a plan that involves cutting taxes, and its been that way since 1980.

    If you watched the Republican debates, they only acknowledged that no-child-left-behind was a failure, and Ron Paul wants us to no longer be a military or economic superpower anymore. They made no mention of mistakes during the Bush Presidency, and what they planned to do differently.

    Obama doesn't blame Bush. Bush is only one man. He blames failed policies that were adopted by the Republican party, Bush was simply the man to enact those policies. If the Republicans quit trying the same failed policies over and over, I think they would be worth a 2nd look on the ballot, but at the moment that is not the case.

    I don't support socialism for wealthy people, OR corporate welfare, so Im going to vote against Mitt Romney, whoever he is running against, that is who my vote is going towards.

    well that didnt last long.

    9. All political discussion must be directly related to firearms, gun rights, or the second amendment.

    There are many different people here with many different viewpoints on various issues. Like religion, discussing these issues here is highly likely to offend and very little good can come of it. We need to be focusing on the things that bring us together (firearms), not the things that have the potential to divide us (politics).
