This seems especially true in the case of NRA campaign contributions. Why would any politician vote against a huge donor? Gun control is a dead issue until Congress begins to be held accountable for their inaction and silence.
I agree, but actually would expand the thought to include any one (and especially white evangelicals) who claims to follow Jesus and yet ignores those in greatest need. The Gospels are not just clear on this point, but explicit.
All our guns are not making us safer. I know numbers can lie, but this looks fairly clear to me.
We lead the developed world in gun murders. Isn’t it time we forced our elected politicians to actual do something about gun control?
While the White House waffles and delays any significant response to the deadliest mass shooting in US history, at least one member of Congress tell it like it is. #BLOTUS and his cronies are not about to antagonize their base by taking action. Where does it stop?
The issue of a free press is becoming ever more critical as the #BLOTUS ramps up his rhetoric and his attacks against the mainstream media. A vigorous and robust Fourth Estate is essential to keep politicians and power groups accountable to the public.
Now is the time to support the press as never before. We cannot allow the Liar-In-Chief to muzzle those responsible for shining the light of truth on all his illegal, and some would even say traitorous, activities.
Those that do not know history are doomed to repeat it. Isn’t that the way that old saying goes?
It’s been said before. We have the best democracy that money can buy.
