“The Times They Are A Changing” and not for the better…
“Come gather around people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You’ll be drenched to the bone
And if your breath to you is worth saving
Then you better start swimming or you’ll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changing” (Bob Dylan)
The “times” are about to change considerably come November 8th and it could be a major disaster. As you know, we have a presidential election upon us… finally. It’s been a long 8 years. As a formerly registered lobbyist for Second Amendment rights and, needless to say, a long-time gun owner, I ask that you consider the Second Amendment first and foremost when you go in the voting booth. Without our right to keep and bear arms we can and will lose the rest of our rights.
I am a supporter of Donald Trump, not because I love everything about him or agree with him on all issues or would even like him on a personal basis. I support him because he supports the Second Amendment along with our boys (and girls) in uniform whether they are military or law enforcement. We, the gun people, are the backbone of this country along with our police and military. Having said this, there is no way any of us can vote for Hillary Clinton. It would be a total contradiction in philosophy and beliefs.
The race is going to be a tight one. This November not one of us can afford to stay home or “sit it out” as suggested by those who are concerned about some of Trump’s “antics” (for lack of a better word). In all honesty and fairness, what one (like Trump for example) does in their private life is of no concern to me. Trump has never been elected by the people to represent the people unlike Hillary who has a long, nasty proven record. Trump will put the right people in the right places in his administration.
So for all of you gun-owners who have never really gotten involved politically, it’s “time to start swimming or you’ll sink like a stone” meaning you need to get out and vote for the candidate who will not screw with our Second Amendment even if you have to hold your nose when you do.
