NRA Convention Is Really Anti-Hillary Rally
So nice that gun advocates are nonpartisan
NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre kicked off the event with a 20 minute speech dedicated almost entirely to blasting Clinton and warning of the “permanent darkness of deceit and despair” that would come if she were elected.
“I vow on this day the NRA will stand shoulder to shoulder with you and good, honest decent Americans and we will stand and fight with everything we’ve got and in 2016, by God, we will elect the next great president of the United States of America and it will not be Hillary Rodham Clinton,” he said.
LaPierre criticized her work as an attorney, First Lady, Senator and Secretary of State, digging far back in her resume for some of his critiques. At one point, he listed a series of controversies Clinton has been involved with, including “Benghazi-gate,” “email-gate” and “travel-gate.”
“Hillary Clinton has more gates than a South Texas cattle ranch,” he said…
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush criticized Clinton and others who want to take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) also mentioned Clinton when he spoke about shrinking government dependency.
The audience didn’t tire of the rhetoric and each jab at Clinton drew loud applause. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), the last to speak, asked the conservative crowd if he was at the Ready for Hillary gathering, to which the room erupted in a loud “no.”

Maybe blind devotion to morally corrupt leaders?
Perhaps willful ignorance of the Bible and Jesus’ message, even as they cling on to their Bibles while brandishing their guns?
And fatty foods… probably lots and lots of fatty foods.

guns and GOD. that’s it. ’cause it sure as hell isn’t “politics” in a sense that it’s not about what’s good for the country. they never talk about that really. unless you think, only GOD and guns matter. other than that, they don’t talk about education, job, children, womens rights, global warming (unless its deny) etc.
