Confused by the people in the news today.

I was amazed today, while watching the News. There are about a thousand people or less picketing for gun control. The signs they carry say they represent America. The other signs they carry say the NRA does not represent America. I'm a little confused as how 1000 left wingers can think they represent America, And the 4.2 million right wing members of the NRA do not???

What am I missing???

Unfortunately for the majority, if you are in the minority about an issue, that's what the press in going to yammer about, and most likely take their side as well.

Actually, if it's a very vocal left minority the media will gladly cover it and cram whatever legislation they want down the majorities throats like it or not.

It's how we got Obamacare and the left is very good at it. Gun owners beware.

Remember the constant "Body Count" articles, mosaics back when Bush was president? Well there are more body's now than ever and no more body counts.

Remember Code Pink & Cindy Sheehan? I wonder where they went once Barry was sworn in?

Over 6000 MSM outlets are owned by only 3 corporations.. if you think your watching the "News" on any major network or cable network I got some really pretty Ocean Front property in Colorado I am selling too cheap..

Fascism is a religion of the state. It assumes the organic unity of the body politic and longs for a national leader attuned to the will of the people. It is totalitarian in that it views everything as political and holds that any action by the state is justified to achieve the common good. It takes responsibility for all aspects of life, including our health and well-being, and seeks to impose uniformity of thought and action, whether by force or through regulation and social pressure. Everything, including economy and religion, must be aligned with its objectives.
