The only thing we have in our favor is democracy and it is being eroded every day.

If the leftist had their way they would move us toward democracy.  What IS being eroded is the basis for our representative republic. 

I don't disagree with you about money and greed.  Look how much money has been put into anti 2nd amendment groups.  Some of the richest (and best protected) people in the country wish to disarm the rest of us. 
They are so divorced from their own interests that even when their own security and that of their children is finally compromised, they do not seek to avert the danger themselves but cross their arms and wait for the nation as a whole to come to their aid. Yet as utterly as they sacrifice their own free will, they are no fonder of obedience than anyone else. They submit, it is true, to the whims of a clerk, but no sooner is force removed than they are glad to defy the law as a defeated enemy. Thus one finds them ever wavering between servitude and license.

Looks like you can get a discounted life membership various places:

Makes me wonder why.  It would make sense that they would be hurting when they are not under so much attack while the Republicans control the Senate.

You have all the representation you ever had before.  But it is filled with alligators and snakes.  It is comprised of the left middle and right and is referred to as the swamp.  And is most certainly let by a criminal.  Lock him up.

...  What IS being eroded is the basis for our representative republic ...

True.

...Some of the richest (and best protected) people in the country wish to disarm the rest of us.

Also True.

...Makes you wonder why there are so many supporters ...

@Ace
Just in case my "Loading Bench" reference (above) went un-noticed, pls allow me to clarify:

I think SCI is great. (Speaking of which, the Convention is coming up ... )
I do have a 30 yr old Bone to pick with the NRA - I'll talk to them.

The reason the NRA has so many [2nd Amendment] supporters, is: There are a lot of good, hard working people in this country that don't think ... Socialists ... should be permitted so suck off of their hard work. Sometimes I think Varroa and Socialism mite have a few things in common. I wonder if Bees would love to have some (2nd Amendment) rights to exercise against the life sucking Varroa.  :cool:

Cheers!  :smile:

Some people believe there is a huge difference between a human being and any other animal.  A human being will sacrifice themselves to help others that they don't know.  No other animal does that.  Now one has to think about why a human being is at the top of the animal kingdom.

Brian,
I think the people who have been saved by dolphins, whales and some land mammals, will seriously argue about that.
