OK, will do it.
He doesn’t (shouldn’t) need our letters.
This is all one great big theatre performance being put on for the masses. The outcome has already been decided by the elected crooks.
We as Americans have the right to bear arms. PERIOD.
I am done playing their games. Calling, faxing, emailing, letter writing. They don’t care what we think. When the majority of Americans accept the fact that these bamboozlers in DC are completely full of manure, we can then take back our nation.
I will not jump just because they tell me too. Think about it. Why do we need to write these letters when we already have the right to bear arms? Is it to make us believe we the people still have the power to govern ourselves?
This is all one great big sham.
All they need is to read the clearly written words in the US Constitution.
Letters? He wants letters?
Fine, how about these letters...
W E T H E P E O P L E
Why can’t he read the same stuff the rest of us do? And why can’t he do the same math on firearms sales? FReepers assemble a wealth of information on this topic, gleaned from news sources around the world and from many perceptive, wise, and intelligent citizens of America.
If you can’t learn anything from all this, Senator Cruz, perhaps you should step aside and make room for someone who can.
Gee, guys, stop being so negative. Cruz is our friend. He’s a real firebrand who has been in office a matter of weeks but is already doing what he promised and taking the liberals to the cleaners. Have you seen some of the video footage of this guy in action? He’s not afraid of Obama (yet. I assume this mean Obama hasn’t found the lever by which to blackmail him so far.)
He’s looking for ammunition—the verbal kind. We have all heard and read stories about people who defend themselves, and it’s helpful for him to be able to tell those stories. I have three such stories myself. He may also want to be able to speak out using arguments that possibly his staffers haven’t thought of.
Example: there was a woman lawyer from the Independent Women’s Forum who testified the other day. She talked about how guns equalize women with larger stronger male criminals. This is an excellent argument, but I could take it further. I’d like to write to Cruz on this, extending and developing the premise, because I have some additional ideas.
The question is, does he want to hear from everybody, or just from his constituency?
Attacking Senator Cruz??? You must be one du’s finest.
one of rather......
Oh, the irony of asking the federal government to protect the Second Amendment! :-)
Bump for reference.
If senator Cruz is on the up-and-up with this, then he is a naive fool.
He, and any one who wastes their time writing a “letter”, is playing checkers while the powers that be are planning a war.
This is another distraction. Wake up. Our govt. has been taken over by communists, New World Order lovers, and spineless useful idiots.
This isn’t about being negative or positive. This is about truth and reality.
They are distracting us with crap like this. We need to stop responding to their commands. We are not dogs, we are The American People.
We have a Constitution to protect. These politicians and the minions behind them are destroying it.
They are laughing at us. Our feeble attempts working “within the system” are useless.
The last election was stolen. We did nothing.
Our President can kill us without due process. We do nothing.
Guns will be outlawed. I assume most of us will do nothing.
This list of treasonous acts go on and on. We do nothing.
Do you really think a letter writing campaign about the benefits of gunownership will help?
Please wake up!
Yes. All of these naive useful politicians should step aside. Just because someone is a good man, it doesn’t mean he is the right man for the job.
So what are you planning to do? What do you want Cruz to do? I don’t believe he’s one of the people destroying the Constitution. When you say “we have a Constitution to protect,” what steps do you recommend, specifically?
Cruz probably isn’t wanting to destroy our nation. But he is naive if he believes that a letter writing campaign will stop the gun hunt.
These so called “elected officials” were put in office to uphold and defend the constitution. They are not. This is all lip service.
What am I doing you ask? Praying. And IF there is anymore I am doing.......well that is my business.
If we don't support the conservative legislators that are left, we will be a voice in the desert.
