I'm no political expert. (Read as dumber than a box of rocks.) I can only hope not. One thing I'm sure of; whether you agree with him or not, Bush is a man who goes his own way. He's stuck with his policies because he truly believes it's the right thing to do, even though his views seem to be unpopular. I would expect him to remain consistent.
It will change, but I doubt for the better. All the people who complained about Bush better hope he does not mind weilding his veto power to veto all the anti-gun bills. My hope is that the Dems will realize this is a loosing issue and not push it. As of right now, they only control the House. If they win the Senate, I am afraid they will try to push their anti-gun agenda. Not to mention, if they do win the Senate, no conservative judges will be appointed, which is real bad new for us.
Of course-the Reps will be playing defense-our President will have a tough time getting anything done-but I know he'll fight to the last day to accomplish what he believes is best for this country-he is a statesman, more than a politician. More battles-more angry rhetoric-and more need than ever before for EVERY American to loudly state to their elected officials their wants and wishes...of the people, by the people, and for the people.....and the system of checks and balances set up in our gov't has never been more important than now-thank God for the SC appointments recently-we'll see in the next 10 years how important they were. If the Reps. clean up their lives and get down to business-we could still have a Rep. president in two years...lots of work to do...I want to see the final % of registered voters who actually got off their butts and voted....that's the key to overcoming fraud and scams-voter participation.
Here is another thought---We as gun owners---desperately need to convince Democratic and Republican politicians at every level that AMERICANS (that's us) need to be able to keep our GUNS. Gun ownership is not a political issue. It is a guarenteed constitutional right! There is a giant pile of issues and matters that need to be taken care of in our great country, but we need our firearms left alone.
