When you get right down to it, there are, like it or not, only two choices in this election: Trump or Clinton. My support in the primary was for Cruz, but this ugly thing called politics eliminated him.
The Republican Party made Trump. Huh? Yes, the GOP has given us the likes of droll Dole, lame McCain, and somni* Romney. People are apparently tired of the same old rubber stamping that the GOP has been giving to the Democrats, and have chosen Trump.
Trump is not perfect, but remember, you are not hiring your next pastor. So, either vote for him, or help Hillary.
With Hillary, you know what you are getting: Gun grabber, abortion advocate, leftist justices, etc.
With Trump, we know he was opposed to "Assault Weapons" in the past. But last year at NRA, I had the chance to ask him about national reciprocity. Here is that video:
NATIONAL RIGHT TO CARRY. The right of self-defense doesn’t stop at the end of your driveway. That’s why I have a concealed carry permit and why tens of millions of Americans do too. That permit should be valid in all 50 states. A driver’s license works in every state, so it’s common sense that a concealed carry permit should work in every state. If we can do that for driving – which is a privilege, not a right – then surely we can do that for concealed carry, which is a right, not a privilege.So who will you vote for, the person who says the Supreme Court was wrong in the Heller decision, and has never met a gun grab she didn't like, or someone who seems to now be genuinely in our camp.
You can't afford to sit on the sidelines this time.
In related news, the Louisville weekend crime rate dropped significantly while the NRA was in town. Check out Rob Morse's report over at Slow Facts.
On a personal note, it was great spending time with my son Jon at the NRA; and reconnecting with fellow travelers.
*somni - as in asleep, specifically, Romney was asleep when he debated Obama.
