    Beto could have taken pretty much the same positions on those issues if he had couched them with the usual preface denoting his basic support of both the right to bear arms and freedom of religion. Then, what followed, would have been easier to take. It like the advice of a spoonful of sugar from Mary Poppins. Instead Beto simply sounded harsh and threatening and that hurt him in the end.

    Or he was hoping that I supported a ban on machine guns so he can call me a hypocrite.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Wonder how many of those will drop out? Probably Warren or she just won't go anywhere. Especially after that 52 T comment.

    That's an easy one grasshopper. You don't want your targets armed equally or better then you.

    I liked Beto. Not as our leader, but because he came out and said what every Democratic wannabe candidate also believes. Only he said it, and wouldn't back down. He owned it. Good for him. I wish every politician was this honest.

    Wouldn't it be great if Elizabeth Warren just came out and said, "MFA will mean a big tax increase for everyone".

    Or president Trump just come out and said,"I want a wall, and we will pay for it".
