A Different Plantation

There has been some discussion recently about how the black population in America is being taken for granted by the Democrat party. They are irrelevant to the political process because roughly 95% vote Democrat every election. "Why bother with courting a demographic that's already sold their collective souls to you?" is the basic premise.

I wonder...have gun owners sold themselves onto a different plantation? Are we taken for granted by the Republicans?

Given the choice between Statists who hate all individual liberty (except for abortion and gay rights), and Statist-lites who 'go along-get along' (but are good on guns), do we choose the wobbly Republican most times?

Hmmm. Good Question. I don't know if the current Republitard Leadership takes us for Granted, but I do know the current DemaCommie Leadership HATES the RKBA (with the possible exception of Harry Reid). The NRA Voters guide helps a lot, but sometimes, the way they (the Republitards) vote on other issues churns my gut.

I guess it comes down to this: If a Citizen is Armed, the odds of getting rid of the Bums are a Lot higher than having to use a Sharp Stick to keep one's Freedom.

While the Republictards do take us for granted, Gun owners have not sold their souls. Just like fiscally responsible people did not turn out in droves to vote for GHWB the 2nd time Gun Owners did not as well.

If GHWB had not betrayed the Gun owners and the Tax payers, he would have defeated Clinton.

just my 2 cents.

The Rethuglicans realize that there are pro-2A Democraps out there, so they know that in most places they can't take gun owners completely for granted. They have to evaluate each district/state individually, along with their opponent in each election.

So, they do when and where they can, but they have to pick and choose.
