The main thing is people vote . if you didn't vote you have no right to complain about any thing . I you did vote regardless of for who . Then you have a right to speak.
There is a big difference in what past presidents signed after it was pased than what Obama is doing with executive orders.
What a bunch of over-repeated crap. If you vote for a known gun banner and he signs anti-gun legislation (as Romney has done), that is when you have no right to complain.
In fact, if you vote for a known gun banner, regardless of who wins the election, you have no right to complain about new gun laws. Even though Obama won, by voting for a known gun banner (Romney) you gave the political establishment a signed statement that you support gun control.
That is how it really works.
To the political establishment, campaign advertisements are meaningless. Your vote is an endorsement of the history of the candidate you voted for; not of his campaign rhetoric nor an anti-endorsement of his biggest competitor. When you sign an agreement, you are held to the fine print whether you read it or not.
Furthermore than that, my refusal to sign over the future of my God-given rights in exchange for the democratic process (which the Founding Fathers were emphatically against) absolutely does not remove my First Amendment right to complain when my other God-given (not government-given) rights are being trampled.
Sign over your rights to your perceived least-objectionable candidate if you like, but leave mine out of it.
Your thinking is the one that is flawed, since you obviously think we don't actually have any rights. Go read the definition before trying to apply some stupid knee-jerk statement to me that you have obviously heard but never actually thought about.
