You all have made great points. The Dems are in a real mess right now with the extreme liberals running the party, just as the Republican party has been over influenced by the religious right. One party want's to take away my guns while the other wants to make religion into law. McCain used to be one of my favorite Republicans until this election where, he too has given in to the far right side of his party. It's really a sad time for me watching the extremest on both sides divide the whole of America.
I think that g2busmc has made the best suggestion. Maybe the rational Americans need to start their own party. Our slogan could be " Vote for us or we'll shoot you in the face!" I'm sure Cheny would come right on over. Of course he would filter all of our campaign money to Halliburton.
Thanks gunco members for all of the intelligent debate. This sight represents what America is all about!
