Today's Five Minute Activism -- If It's Worth the Time in Your State

The War On Guns - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 12:52
What if Barack Obama could create 5,000,000 new anti-gun voters ... in a tyrannical act of unconstitutional usurpation ... all by the stroke of his pen? [More]And what if only GOA and a handful of us gave a damn? That NRA is avoiding this in order to promote establishment sellouts and suck up to the neocons is inexcusable. Those who say this has no bearing on the "single issue" are either kidding themselves or conning others.

I took a moment to do this. I'm not sure why, probably just reflex loyalty to GOA. Being in Ohio, Democrat Brown is a waste for me. So is that POS RINO Portman.

 Do it if you think you can influence someone. You could always ID a good senator in a closely-contested state. A few of us have urged GOA to identify good alternatives in other states for supporters who would prefer not giving Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer a good cackle at our helplessness to effect political change in Prozi states. We've also urged updating the GOA website to show how a politician's position on amnesty has affected their grade.

I don't think it's Larry. I'd like to see Tim Macy publicly address this, because it's created problems in the past to have a candidate who can make a difference and not see that difference exploited.
