A few thoughts from Micheal Bane.

USA – -(Ammoland.com)- Both Democrats (predictably), the Republican establishment (also predictably) and the discredited MSM (because they don’t have a clue) are giving their “mend a divided nation,” peace love and flowers speech.

Before we all sit down at the same drum circle, I’d like to clarify a few points:

1) We didn’t elect Trump to “end the gridlock in Washington.”

2) We didn’t elect Trump to “reach across the aisle to get things done.”

3) We didn’t elect Trump to cozy up to the Democrats and see if they can find a “compromise” way to chip away at our rights.

We elected Trump — and I have been all-in for a long time — to END the “fundamental change” of America, to drag the “Obama legacy” into the sunlight, tie it to a post, execute it, then bury it in unhallowed ground.

Only then can America move ahead.

A couple of more points of clarification, at least from my point of view (which is, parenthetically, the only one I am qualified to give):

1) I unconditionally respect the rights of other people to their own opinions. I respected it on Monday; I respected it on Wednesday. That doesn’t mean I have to respect those opinions.

2) After the progressive far-left takeover of the Democrat party, those Democrat plotted — gleefully — how they were going to strip me of my rights as soon as they were in office. They made it a talking point. They did not give a damn that the vast majority of Americans were against them; rather, they operated on Barack Obama’s coda of, “Elections have consequences.”

3) Socialism, even in it’s Democratic Party guise of “progressivism,” is evil, a boot on the face forever, to paraphrase Orwell. Socialism is the handmaiden to totalitarianism. It has never worked; it will never work. If you as an individual would like to participate in a socialist experiment, move to Venezuela or any number of African pest-holes. They would be happy to have you, and the money in your wallet. Bring your own food. I unconditionally oppose any compromise on moving America in that direction. I opposed it on Monday; I opposed it on Wednesday.

4) I see no difference between “progressives” and, say, violent anti-Semites or America Nazis — they hold opinions which I do not and can not countenance. Moreover, progressives, as are their analog anti-Semites and virulent racists, are evangelical in their zeal to spread their vile teachings. Compromise? What compromise is there with evil?

5) If you are a liberal, that is, you come with a different world view than mine, fine, we can talk, argue, maybe find some common ground. If, however, your liberalism extends to limiting my rights or exercising power over my life, there is no common ground to be found.

6) On Monday, I was a small “l” libertarian and a single-issue voter. Nothing changed on Wednesday morning.

7) I’m all for “civil,” not so much on “compromise.”

I will hold him to accounts for his promises. I am not sure he is letting the Democrats in on his real plans. Please remember, he is the person that said DO NOT TELL YOUR OPPONENTS YOUR PLANS IN ADVANCE (paraphrasing). He might be letting them think he is willing to give ground but is buying time to get his people in place, only time will tell.

I do have to admit I get a certain satisfaction reading the liberal news and watching them wondering how this all came about. They still don't have a clue and now they think they have to move even more left. :cheers:

BlueZ...Please post the web link when posting stories from the net.

One thing that the writer failed to mention right off the bat was "DRAIN THE SWAMP"
Also I haven't heard one person there mention TERM LIMITS since Trump won. Term limits should be implemented immediately and it will have to be done by executive order. The RINOs will never vote for it.

PLEASE DONALD TRUMP...QUIT THE PHOTO OPS WITH MITCH MCCONNELL! He is one of the biggest gators in the swamp that needs to go as quickly as possible.

I'm all for this IF THEY GET RID OF THE PERMIT.

Did you happen to see the article on how easily it is going to be to get rid of the dreamers who SIGNED up for Obamas dreamer act applicants because there now is a list?

It can be the same thing with carry permits if it happens to go the other way at some point.

Lets get constitutional on this issue folks. 2nd amendment says nothing about the right to bear arms IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A PERMIT.

Missouri just passed Constitutional Carry into Law, it goes into effect Jan. 1st. The only problem is that other States don't reciprocate, so carrying a Gun out of State without a Permit becomes a problem. It would be nice if Constitutional Carry laws were passed Nation wide, but I doubt that will happen.

Maybe that's his way of calming the hoarde. After things are settled and the sheep go back to their pastures he can make the changes he wants over time. Right now liberals think he's taking away everything the moment his inauguration is complete.

He seems to have calmed down and is not just running amok, as he "seems" to have done for so long. I am not condemning that in him, just saying, he too has had to deal with the reality of what he really can and cannot do. He is used to making any and all decisions that he has wanted to in running his corporation(s), but he has some adjustments to make in that kind of leadership. He will be learning much in the time until he takes office. It will not be easy.

There may come a time we will have a come to meeting party with the government, if you have registered a gun they know where you are.

I like having a CCW to protect my self from 4 thugs pulling me out of my car to have a beat down due to whom I voted for or the color of my skin!

At least I can give them some lead to remind them of the next time they think of performing this heinous act.

Well the European trade deal is dead, the TPP is all but dead and Canada has already said they are willing to work on NAFTA. So once a pro 2nd Amendment justice is put on the bench im pretty happy with Trump.

If Trump protects the 2nd amendment with the selection of the proper SC justice(s). Builds the wall. Drains the swamp and eliminating all other corruption they can find.

If he completes all three of these then for me he's a success.

If he can lock up Hillary, get rid of Obama care, and improve the economy, then it's all icing on the cake.

Remember he is still an outsider and the insiders like Obama will all suck up to him for mercy and Trump is being smart by playing along. After Jan 20 will be the test of his believes.
