Seth wants to start stomping on rights to prevent terrorist attacks? Shall we start stomping on the rights of gays then? Wouldn’t that have prevented this latest attack? Two can play this game, Seth. The difference is that I am just making a point and you really want to violate constitutional rights in the name of some sort of imagined safety. You disgust me.

Sorry sarge. After reading your comment a 2nd time I shouldn’t have included you in that reply. Don’t know what I was thinking.
Also, the last part about it being a pleasure to educate was meant with sincerity.

Freedomlover, sargking, here is some education for you. At the time of writing the constitution it was a common way of writing where you would start a sentence with an examples and support related to what you were about to define. “A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, ….” is an example of this style of writing. The founding documents including the constitution are rife with this style of writing.
The Supreme Court has upheld time and time again that the 2nd amendment was not trying to limit guns to just militias. The justices know the style of language used by the founders. The justices know through other founding documents, speeches by the founders, communications between the founders, and state constitutions that the intent of the 2nd amendment was and is always meant as the individual’s right to keep and bear arms. Suggesting otherwise is completely ignorant, uneducated, or purposely obtuse.
What is interesting is that other uses of this style of writing are completely accepted by gun grabbers but when it comes to the 2nd amendment they want to read it a different way.
It was my pleasure to educate you today.

Time for the remaining good people of Oregon to leave that wicked state and congregate where there is still some light.

I just think that Trump is a complete liar about what he believes and what he will do. I am convinced that he is a progressive socialist just like Hillary. He has managed to dupe a bunch of people.
I know you disagree. But after honestly considering all the information at hand this is what I believe. You can’t expect someone who has reached these conclusions to vote for Trump any more than I can expect someone who has been duped by Trump to suddenly see through his deception.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know that people like me haven’t been whipped up into anger over Trump like you think. It would be more accurate to say that I am disappointed and saddened that people who I thought were principled thinking constitutionalists turned out to be angry, blind, rubes easily seduced away by someone who does nothing more than pluck the strings of the natural man.
I sincerely hope you wake up before you have given this con artist all your honor in exchange for a mouthful of ashes.

Ummm… Sorry to break it to you but this “bargain” of yours is all in your head.

Sigh…. I hope this woman reaches the point where she can become honest with herself about a whole lot of things. I honestly feel bad for her and people like her. To see citizens so completely deceived pains my heart. My sincere hope and prayer is that the scales fall from their eyes and they see the truth with perfect clarity.

Not sure if serious.How can voting for someone else be a vote for Hillary? That is not possible. Are you insane? I am positive that if I vote for someone else it a vote for that person, not a vote for Hillary. Or are you claiming that somehow when I vote for someone else I will accidentally check the box next to Hillary’s name and not realize it? I assure you, I will be explicitly careful to write in the name I am voting for and NOT check the box for Hillary. So don’t worry.

Let me help you. The tea party stands for the constitution. As Palin and Sessions move from the constitution to progressive or socialist candidates they move away from the tea party. The tea party does not move with them.

Up until now I thought if Rubio won the nomination I would hold my nose and vote for him. After this last debate I have had it with him and I will never vote for him. I was watching closely when Rubio joined the gang of eight and tried to pass comprehensive immigration reform that included amnesty. I cheered Cruz as he and a few other senators fought and killed it at great cost and effort. Now to see Rubio frame Cruz for it is to much to bear.
If Rubio just admitted to what he did I would probably vote for him. But to lie and twist it into framing Cruz (who fought against it) shows a level of slimy politician on Rubio’s part that speaks of deep character flaws that I cannot vote for.

I am kind of frustrated with Beck over that as well. And Beck talking about repointing the cornerstone or whatever is just so… Blah. Most people are going to fall asleep when Beck starts talking like that and you are certainly not going to win people who are on the fence. I know Beck wants to sound all intellectual but Cruz’s campaign has that already my the truck load. Compare that with a snappy and memorable slogan like, “Make America great again.” It is sad but Cruz will benefit most right now from simple slogans that make people feel good or empowered.
Beck needs to very quickly learn how to more effectively help Cruz and not hurt him.

@jeffersen – McCain worse than Obama in the sense that a certain simple minded or intellectually lazy percentage of McCain voters would follow him, or fall asleep, as he takes the nation in to the same place Obama has taken the nation, down into the pit of progressivism. This is what the two have in common, big government progressivism.

Don’t forget Michele Bachman and her love affair with spying on American citizens.

For the thousandth time, IT DOES NOT MATTER IF OUTLAWING GUNS REDUCES MURDERS! It is not worth the loss of Liberty. I know that is hard for some people to hear but that is because they do not properly comprehend the the value of Liberty and take it for granted. Hear me when I tell you that Liberty IS that valuable. What fools we will think ourselves for letting it slip away when it is all gone.
Exactly. What if church attendance was shown to reduce murders? Would it be OK to mandate church attendance?
"If it would just save ONE life!"
And this is the most important point by far!! We have willing lost so many to buy Liberty and must always be willing to to pay the high price of Liberty!

Sorry. I am not ready to trust Rubio. He claims he has learned his lesson but that doesn’t mean he deserves my trust. After he sold us out on amnesty and securing the border and joining up with those progressive rinos I can’t gain back my trust this quickly. Also, his record on supporting the NSA spying and supporting shredding the constitution to do it is appalling. And no Marco, being privy to the scary secret intelligence information is no justification for taking our liberty in exchange for safety. Live free or die you pathetic coward.

I would call stopping over 90,000 people from using trusts and corporations to register NFA items pretty bad news. By the way, the vast majority of that 90,000 are people registering, paying $200, and waiting six months for a sound suppressor (which is primarily a hearing safety device).

It probably won’t curb gun violence. Even if it did would it be worth the loss of liberty? I say no.
Getting rid of gun violence is like getting rid of traffic accidents. Each problem has its own particular classifications of cause. We could get rid of all traffic accidents if we just made driving illegal. Unfortunately that would end all legal and beneficial use of cars and trucks. Lets maybe work on drunk driving as a category, followed by speeding and other illegal uses of the car. Prescribing the same fix for all categories of "gun violence produces the same foolish solutions. I don't want to get rid of the legal uses of guns but I could be interested in slowing down accidental discharges through training which the NRA is already doing. I don't want to eliminate any self defense shootings and I would like to see fewer weapons used in robbery and Jihad. As long as all events are lumped together, no one is going to be interested in a solution that is very similar to shutting down the roads or setting the speed limits to three miles per hour to get the lower death rate.

It might be time to strip the executive branch of all powers given it by the people except, perhaps, the power to coordinate the national defense. Far to many citizens are already starting to think of the president as some sort of king and his wife some sort of queen. With each new president we see more and more power taken from the other branches of government. With each new president we see more and more of the constitution ignored. We need a major reset and we need it soon.
You’re right but it’s too late. Obama will subvert liberty in America to the max in 2016. Except for Muslims, who he loves, but especially for Christians, who he despises. And watch for him to subvert the Constitution even more this year, in his drive to disarm Americans and open the country to terrorists who will help him to accomplish his agenda, and he will cancel the next Presidential election. He has an agenda to overthrow Christian America and he won’t leave office until he has accomplished it.
You are a little late to the party dude! The constitution is gone. Besides the old one never had any power to strip the executive branch of anything.
 January 1, 2016 at 12:38pm
Will congress exert its powers as the legislative branch and put the president in his place for overreaching his powers as executive? Sadly, congress has shown itself to be a bunch of cowards that will stand by while the constitution is torn apart by the hands of tyranny of scocialism.
It seems to me like every single politician in Washington DC, save only a very few, are under the spell and influence of this evil regime. It's almost like we're watching Hitler take over Germany only in the American version. Liberalism and those who practice it, need to be stopped.
They are mostly all playing for the same team
Wings of the same buzzard since the eagles have flown the coop.
All this "so we can feel better about ourselves" lies create more problems and are zero help.
