Now that we are in the middle of another presidential election season, the issues that the campaign will eventually be fought over are beginning to take shape. We are sure to hear a lot about health care, mandates, entitlements, debt, deficits and stimulus(s). There are even some made up issues, like contraception, created out of thin air by Democrats in order to replace issues that they are losing the American public on (like abortion and religious liberty), in an attempt to scare women into thinking that Republicans want to ban the pill.
But think for a moment about what we are not hearing much about anymore. It’s an issue that, for a few decades, liberals seemed physically unable to shut up about. The issue is gun control, and for this (and recent election seasons) it has been the dog that hasn’t barked.
Modern day Democrats have had an ongoing infatuation with gun control. It seemed that, whatever the problem, guns were the cause; and more gun control was the solution. But a funny thing happened on the way to liberal Nirvana, the American public didn’t go along.

We’re hearing a battery of bleats out there about Governor Chris Christie as a possible presidential candidate. And were it based only on the tough choices he has forced his state to confront, and the skill with which he’s stood up to his state’s unions and their rent-a-goons, you’d have to say that he might just be a good choice if he could be convinced to run. That’s if you didn’t look any farther… I did, as have some other people.
If you look at what Christie has said on some very key issues for Conservatives, the luster starts to dull. He has stated that he wants to see ‘A Pathway To Citizenship’ for illegal immigrants. Sounds a little like our erstwhile presidential candidate, doesn’t it?
Even more troubling for Conservatives will be the Governor’s view of the Second Amendment. It won’t take much more research than to look up Christie’s 1995 anti-gun ad campaign during his run for State Assembly. That would do it for most Patriot gunners right there, I’m sure.
The final nail in Chris Cristie’s presidential aspirations should be his espousal of ‘green energy’, which is scarily reminiscent of The Anointed One’s assault on domestic energy production, and the coal industry in particular.
So it would seem that for all Mr. Christie’s accomplishments in reigning in New Jersey’s wild excesses… he is, in fact, another Republican In Name Only. It is my firm belief that this country cannot survive with a moderate RINO at the helm. read more »
