  1. Yeah well the saying don’t mess with Texas exists for a reason. Texas turnout is already at 45% of 2016 and adding points daily.
  2. It isn’t just politicians kids. Connections matter in all walks of life. My friends son got into a hedge fund because of connections he made through ski team.
  3. Well my assumption if the FBI under Trump had actual evidence of illegal behavior by Biden they would have acted long ago. While I think the FBI can be overzealous in their use FISA court, I don’t think they would ever overlook any politician acting illegally. My assumption may in time be proven incorrect we shall see. But for now that is the basis for my thoughts.
  4. Nor do I. My point is pretty much yours. HMHB is arguing the 2nd Amendment was not primarily to limit the power of the federal government. A power he believes is no longer a threat.
  5. I’m not saying the rifle isn’t and shouldn’t be. You are the one saying their is no threat from the central state and it can’t happen here. BTW. Perhaps you should read. I’m not saying self defense isn’t a valid right. For many living on the edge of Indian Territory it was a necessity. The burden is on you to prove the threat from a central government is not a key component. Something you have failed to do.
  6. Right the question at debate isn’t if self defense is a valid reason of the second Amendment. It is. The question is as shown in 46, is the 2nd Amendment largely about defending against a despot... This proportion would not yield, in the United States, an army of more than twenty-five or thirty thousand men. Tothese would be opposed a militia amounting to near half a million of citizens with arms in their hands, officered by men chosen from among themselves, fighting for their common liberties, and united and conducted by governments possessing their affections and confidence.
  7. https://guides.loc.gov/federalist-papers/text-41-50#s-lg-box-wrapper-25493411 Extravagant as the supposition is, let it however be made. Let a regular army, fully equal to the resources of the country, be formed; and let it be entirely at the devotion of the federal government; still it would not be going too far to say, that the State governments, with the people on their side, would be able to repel the danger. The highest number to which, according to the best computation, a standing army can be carried in any country, does not exceed one hundredth part of the whole number of souls; or one
  8. The discussion was if it would become a tool. I don’t care enough at this point to quote the exact phrase of trusting your neighbors etc.
  9. No they say self defense is a valid use. Not the only purpose or the primary purpose of the 2nd Amendment. But whatever. We aren’t getting any closer.
