WRAM - We dedicate our hearts,minds and bodies to protecting our great Republic!
Maybe I'm a little behind the times, but learned today that Romney PERMANENTLY banned all assault-style weapons in Massachusetts when he was Governor there. Wonder what he'll do if he becomes President? Food for thought.....
Here's one of the articles I read:
Romney signs off on permanent assault weapons ban

Governor Mitt Romney has signed into law a permanent assault weapons ban that he says will make it harder for criminals to get their hands on these guns.
Deadly assault weapons have no place in Massachusetts, Romney said, at a bill signing ceremony on July 1 with legislators, sportsmen's groups and gun safety advocates. These guns are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.
Like the federal assault weapons ban, the state ban, put in place in 1998, was scheduled to expire in September. The new law ensures these deadly weapons, including AK-47s, UZIs and Mac-10 rifles, are permanently prohibited in Massachusetts no matter what happens on the federal level.
We are pleased to mark an important victory in the fight against crime, said Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey. The most important job of state government is ensuring public safety. Governor Romney and I are determined to do whatever it takes to stop the flood of dangerous weapons into our cities and towns and to make Massachusetts safer for law-abiding citizens.
The new law also makes a number of improvements to the current gun licensing system...
Romney is not "Down for the Struggle" like Obama ,that has to count for something with "So Called" Conservative Americans.
So, I guess you are going to vote for left-wing,liberal,socialist-communist and Islam lover Obama?. One other note, a write-in vote for Ron Paul is a vote for Obama. I don't like Romney, but he is 100% better than Obama. I'm voting for him.
I gave him the full 20 mins. I still don't see what you do Chancy. I see Clinton, I see Bush Sr., I see Newt, Romney doesn't look any different.
He does talk a good talk and his talking points are perfectly scripted to the Audience. But they don't hold water when I consider how much Romney has back tracked and changed his story over the years. Ron Paul has had he same message and same talking points for 30 years. That's hard to beat.
Another deciding factor for me is the dead weight each carries into office should they be elected. How many favors does Romney have to try and keep??? His connections are so high he can talk all he wants, bottom line is he is too beholden to special interests and lobbyists that got him his contributors to be able to follow through on much of what he claims.
I see and hear nothing in his words that honestly sounds any different than any other speech given by the other politicians I have been hearing since I reached voting age.
The best laugh I had was starting at 12:44 when he talks about the 2nd Amendment. He says he will defend those rights but will admit that he wants to ban "Assault" weapons. Typical double speak. He proves it by using Hunters and Sportsman in his comment. That is where the difference is between Romney and any other saying they defend the 2nd amendment, IT IS NOT ABOUT HUNTERS AND SPORTSMAN, it is about arming our selves against the government. Bolt action Deer Rifles will not suffice for that.
Chancy, Please help me figure something out here. Please read this: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/08/12/foreign-cash-disqualifies-r... Then I would like you to try to help me with a question. Why would Romney go overseas and take money for his campaign, when he is breaking the law to do so? He supposedly has $Billions; #1; and secondely; he supposedly already has won the primary election? Why would he destroy his campaign? What he did was to give us two disqualified candidates to choose from in the General Election, if he accepts the nomination.
VOTE RON PAUL!
Don`t think so. paul`s isolationist foreign policy would be as bad as odumba`s bowing to foreign leaders and apologizing for America.
Ron Paul does not have an Isolationist agenda with foreign policy. He simply wants the US to get out of other countries business when we don't belong.
The Constitution says nothing about "Peace Keeping Missions". Nor does it allow for the Fed to spend Trillions on bases in other countries to solely protect corporate interests and the raping of other countries natural resources.
He clearly points out that these other countries should be given the same respect and rights we hold so dearly. Simple as that.
If you can't understand that fact then your sadly lost.
Ron paul in my opinion is by far the best choice. But a isolationist agenda? i can see why you would say that. but we have no buisness in the middle east we are there simply for resources (for the U.N.), plain and simple. We are already in multiple conflicts. i cant call them wars because they where not declared. ron paul even mentions that if we are going to push into the middle east they have to delcare a war, not walk right into the middle east with a United Nations agenda and have endless wars that eat all of our money. Trillions of dollars we can use to pay our nation debt. the most common reason for a fall of a empire is a economic downturn.
Ron paul supports our constitution, romney supports NDAA and the Patriot act, 4th and 6th ammendment destroyed. Ron Paul is the only real choice we have for a true president. I will vote for him, even if i have to write it down. Romeny is the new obama. they have the same agenda.
Not to mention the killing and maiming of tens of thousands of our American youth. What is the cost? It cannot even be calculated.
I totally agree - Ron Paul is the only one who can start cleaning up the corruption and rebuilding our country. Romney is a NWO plant, IMO, and has too many close ties to the Bush cabal. Michael Herzog was apparently arrested, I believe in the UK - Herzog was also involved in the Bush/Romney fraud. The NWO elite have covered their bases with Obama and Romney. It doesn't matter who wins the election (if we even have one) - a NWO-chosen puppet will win. I pray Drake is right and these evil ones are removed from power - and maybe Ron Paul is actually the one chosen to be the interim president.
The argument being "very general" is also part of the point in everything with regards to Ron Paul's positions, they are very simple.
The Constitution is written so that even a marginally educated or intelligent person with even a 4th grade reading comprehension can understand it. Part of the take over of our Republic has been the clouding or complicating how Laws are written and the way that certain rights are interpreted.
Law and Religion share that commonality. They are basic enough to grasp and understand, but when you really read every thing that is written in black and white trying to make heads or tails of it depends entirely on the person reading it.
When we apply the same principle to Foreign Policy we are constantly being bombarded with false information or sensationalized news entertainment also known as propaganda. This clouds the facts and complicates the matter where war is peace. Or "they hate us for our freedoms", or they are "radicals". Be afraid the boogeyman is out to get you. You must give up your rights so we may keep you safer.
Yesterdays Terrorist is tomorrows Patriot.
Then what happens when you throw the religion card into the mix, WHOA!!! Even more fodder to gum up the grey matter and turn the facts into fairy tales.
Keep it simple stupid.
I want to live how I see fit. I do not need a baby sitter. If I want advice I will ask for it, I don't need it shoved down my throat. I assume that the guy next door, and even those in a country half way around the globe, they too want the same thing I do.
One more example to simplify it a little more. Concealed Carry Licenses.
Why is one necessary? 99% of the pat answers are something to do with or relating to "Public Safety". Even the most red white and blue blood NRA member who agrees with infringing on a persons 2nd amendment right by justifying any type of license will use that excuse. "it's to protect the public" from idiot gun owners, deranged madmen, criminals, oh my!
While I appreciate everyone wanting to protect me from those elements. Infringing on my right to carry a gun to protect my own person and family from those threats, how does that protect me again??? Or the public??
When seconds count, cops with guns are only minutes away.
These issues are all the same. Whether it's foreign policy, gun laws, fiscal budgets, or traffic laws they are all so complicated and corrupted with so called reason that they no longer make any sense to even the people who have degrees from universities on how to read some of the ridiculous wording on the books. Even they can't agree.
People just need to think simpler. It's not complicated at all.
Fear is probably the ruling factor in why people worry so much about the things Ron Paul talks about. When you have been ruled by the nanny state for so long, cutting the cord is scary business.
