    How about those elections?

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 09 November 2014

    When Obama was elected for a second term I was pretty dissapointed. But I did see the silver lining. I hoped that after 8 years of his "rule" people would be awakened and see what the dems are all about. Here we are 6 years in, and the people have lost more faith in the dems than I could have imagined. Just as bush blew it for over spending over reaching repubs, Obama has done it to the Dems. So...

    the right to bear arms and how it can be used to defend from big government

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 14 May 2014

    With the recent clash between the BLM and a Nevada rancher we can see how the right to bear arms can be used to protect against a big government intrusion. I was wondering what vgcharters thought of the recent event, and how the right to own guns helped protect this man, his family, and his belongings from the long arm of the government. I dont think this would have ended peacfully if the...

    Racial Violence In the US

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 28 January 2013

    Racism is a changing face in America. In the past it has been a minority (black/mexican/asian/etc) vs white. But things have been changing over the last decade or so, and as the hispanic population has increased (and hispanic gangs have exloded in membership) they have begun a race war against the blacks. Not just in prison, and over guns and drugs, but over territory, and to innocent people who...

    Fast and Furious-Obama Style

    With all this talk of gun ownership and right, i am amazed that the fast and furious operation has not been mentioned by the media. Its one of the main reasons we can ban guns, as if the us government is going to sell guns to cartels and let them keep them how are we supposed to defend our...

    It seems in their zeal to get gun laws passed new york has neglected to make exemptions for police officers to carry more than 7 rounds. so now they are looking to ammend the law, but what i find intersting is the reason given: "State Senator Eric Adams, a former NYPD Captain, told us he's going to push for an amendment next week to exempt police officers from the high-capacity magazine ban....

    Those that want to pay more

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 26 December 2012

    I have been reading stories of "rich" people who want to pay more taxes. Kind of goes along with Buffet earlier in the year, and I think there have been a few others. Well I see them preach that they want to pay more, and that the rich should pay more, but I have yet to see any of them volunteer to pay more. Or to send in what they feel they owe or should pay, why is that? Why can't they practice...

    in Politics Discussion, last active on on 15 December 2012
