    Ot: Rock the vote for the man that supports our gun rights the most

    First, I need to take off my Michigan Open Carry, Inc. president hat. At this time, MOC doesn't support candidates. The following message I write solely on my own behalf.

    RON PAUL supports your RTKBA

    Seriously...voting is tomorrow from 7AM-8PM. You can find your precinct here: https://webapps.sos.state.mi.us/mivote/

    and if you're thinking about voting for Romney, you should watch this first (before you vote for him and watch it after -- you may puke -- let me save you from that):

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzYTdM9b5F4 - Romney on MA Gun Control

    "We do have tough gun laws in Massachusetts, I support them, I won't chip away at them, I believe they help protect us and provide for our safety." -- Mitt Romney

    Yep, only 1 real choice for gun owners in this election IMO, and that Ron Paul! I have received at least 50 robo-calls in the last few days, all for Santorum or Romney, too bad Paul does not have the money that those 2 do to get his message out there.

    Ron Paul (Excuse the vernacular) doesn't suck off the tit of the big corporate interests that give big money to support candidates.

    He IS the candidate who receives:

    • 3 Times as much money (individual donations) from members of the military than Obama
    • 6 times the amount of money (individual donations) from members of the military than ALL THE OTHER REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES COMBINED!
    Call for a cop, call for an ambulance, and call for a pizza. See who shows up first.

    I agree, and I also like that he does not take that money, I just meant I wish the playing field was a little more even, so all the candidates could be heard equally. At least they let RP debate this time.

    I'd love to see Paul become president. He seems to have a good following among people near my age (19 years old).

    Just remember, (as was pointed out to me by someone here), we arent voting for the president this time, we are voting for the supreme court.

    If I can vote in Big Rapids instead of where I'm from Kalamazoo, yes.

    And this is why he will never get the nomination.
    FINALLY! My sig showed up. So, this space for rent.

    Either way, this election, gun owners are in serious trouble.

    yep! if obama wins term#2 then he will almost be assured to flip the court to a liberal majority(possibly even 6-3 liberal), and then the floodgates will open. with all the 2A cases working their way through the courts right now, some are bound to end up in the SCOTUS, and since the 4 liberals already voted no in Heller and McDonald, they will almost guaranteed use the opportunity to overturn both of those cases. this is a big one folks.

    No problem stainless. sometimes i think people overlook the SCOTUS and only look at what the Pres and Congress does. the fact is that what the President can't do through the front door (restricting 2A included) they will try and do through the back door(SCOTUS).
