    Whacked out liberal politicians are the only father figures that liberal children have.

    Of course... on the pack you'd have to add... for the benefit of Obamatrons... Kool-Aid and Children not included.

    Actually, I shouldn't have gone down that road. I don't agree with you on a lot of things, but I respect your consistency. If you tell me you don't support armed or violent revolution, no matter who proposes or supports it, I'll believe you.

    Back on the topic of over the top rhetoric, one anti-gun dude said that pro gun folks were all murderers. You'd agree that's pretty extreme, right?

    I sincerely hope you're right.

    A position you need to lie in order to defend or believe is not a good position. It's true for some of the anti-gun folks I've mentioned and it's equally true for someone making a false statement like yours is here.

    I'd buy an ar15 now if I thought I couldn't later. I presume I will be able to buy one later. If suddenly I cannot, it's pretty much been taken away from me. Do I need to buy an ar15 or two right now? I don't think so, but if it gets close to actually banning them I will. If I must, I'll sell some of my stuff to buy at least one; I can always buy that stuff again later.

    I don't think so.

    It's not fair or right to use children that way.

    But beyond that, I don't know why the hell politicians think this makes them look better.

    I want someone who is fit for the most powerful office in the world. Someone with ethics, but a stony disposition and decision-making process.

    Showing me what a sweet daddy you are does not fit the bill. Sorry.

    I don't want someone who comes off (or wants to come off) as "daddy" -- or "mommy," for that matter. Those people should stay home and play house. I want a commander in chief.

    I've come to expect the "dog and pony show" that has become American politics anymore. They've been doing it for quite awhile with the catch phrases, photo ops and handlers. They're as much actors as real heads of state. I don't like that they do these things but it doesn't shock me that much. People want these leaders to be all goody goody, PC, smiling BS artists. Give them someone real with all the warts and moles and they would faint. Though this stuff using the kids letters did go a bit far in the phony bologna arena.
