LR the Liberal Redneck here, coming to you from a country that did not realize when they elected a Republican controlled Senate, that they were giving final say about the running of our nation to the National Rifle Association. Republican senators are so totally bought and paid for that they don’t take a crap without making sure it is okay with the NRA. Senator Mitch McConnell, the secret Grand Dragon of the Kentucky KKK, refused to even consider adding a new SCOTUS justice unless the NRA approved of the candidate.

The NRA is not mentioned once in that document that is so revered by the far right, the Constitution. The balance of power between the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches is described in great detail and not once does it mention the final say so in government policy being given to the NRA.

Over 90% of the American public thinks allowing suspected terrorists to freely buy weapons of mass destruction is a bad idea. The NRA Republican controlled Senate said screw the American people. Everyone should have the right to buy as many weapons as they can afford.

If you want your government to go to the highest bidder, if you want vested interest corporations to decide what wars our soldiers should be fighting, if you want Evangelical Christians deciding which religion should be the official religion of our country, then by all means continue sending the same old white men that got us in this mess back to Washington to do the same damn thing all over again.

If, on the other hand, you want a government responsible to the American citizens, then stop sending the same assholes back to Washington. Pull your head out of your ass, America, and send the NRA Republican controlled congress the fuck out of Washington.
