Some argue that we, as a country, have more important things to worry about than guns and rights.
Several months ago:
"You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration and the Bush administration and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not. And it's not surprising, then, they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations," Obama said.I AGREE!
But in a very different way. They're not clinging to "guns or religion" because they do not care about the other problems we face. They're doing so, because unless we can have confidence that our fundamental, basic, natural rights are not up for debate, how are we possibly expected to resolve far more complicated issues?!
If your 1 bedroom house needs to be expanded to make room for your new baby, you may need that extra bedroom, but you have to FIRST fix your cracked foundation. If not, and it may take years, that extra bedroom will eventually crumble with the rest of your home.
