I never was smart enough to avoid bar discussions about politics, religion, abortion or other hot topics. Something about arguing for the sport of arguing…
Tastes Great – Less-Filling.
This is beer, not medicine – taste is everything!
I like beer, but I don’t want to increase my gravitational pull!
Pro-Choice – Pro-Life.
You can’t take way my choice! It’s MY choice!
If you aren’t Pro-Life, you must be against life!
Gun Rights – Gun Control.
I’ll give you my gun when you pry it from my cold, dead hands!
Enacting and enforcing sensible regulations reduces gun violence!
I notice that recently I have just as many gun-rights discussions as I do politics . . .
Now that another annoying election season is ramping back up, I spend time researching a candidate’s position on things that are important to me. And then I look for any history of backing their position. And then I remember why I dislike politicians.
What matters most to me? Who will have the most affect on the economy? Social Values? World Police? Executive/Legislative balance? Future SCOTUS influence? 2nd Amendment stance? Fell for that Global Warming crap?
I’ll let on to my 2A stance with a quote from Benjamin Franklin: “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote.”
How much weight do you place on a politician’s 2A actions?
