What’s Next, America?

What's Next, America? Sheriff Jim WilsonThere’s no doubt that last Tuesday’s election left half of this country in a state of shock, especially gun owners. The administration is already working on a new assault weapons ban and have joined the United Nations in discussions for small arms restrictions. Gun owners are behind the 8-ball, that’s for sure.

Our concerns can be eased a bit by the fact that Republicans still control the House of Representatives. And Congress, in general, is not going to be to excited about trying to pass such controversial legislation. It is still to be seen what the president can do by Executive Order, or other under-the-table schemes.

In the meantime, if the Republican Party is to remain the voice of conservatism, it must open a realistic dialogue with potential voters and examine the party platform to make it more reflective of Americans’ wishes. More importantly, Republican leadership needs to find a way to make peace with the Tea Party and Libertarians so that we can present a united front against socialism. Third party candidates are killing us.

In the meantime, you and I need to get more involved in politics than we ever have before. We need to convert where we can convert and defeat where we can defeat. It’s time for the millions of gun owners in America to pony up and join the National Rifle Association. And, frankly, if you own a gun and aren’t a member of the NRA, I don’t want to hear your stupid excuses. You are part of the problem. It’s time to get real!

I hate to say it, but if you’re looking for someone to blame for this downward spiral into socialism, all you have to do is look in the mirror.

It’s time to get serious and get busy, folks!

    Jim I think that your post hits the ball out of the court. As a conservative I believe that the conservative party needs to get more inline with 2012 and increase our appeal to younger voters. We also need to champion for our 2nd Ammendment rights and let our elected officials know how we feel. We also need to hold all elected officials to task on those issues that affect us regardless of how it affects the PAC or their party. We used to have politicians that cared about our country, I’m not so sure anymore. We also have a large portion of our country who have given up on America. Well it’s still the greatest country on the planet and our way is still the envy of most everyone else. As a side note, thank you to all the Veterans for your sacrifices…

    Where should the republican party go from here?
    Church would be a good start.
    Then to the missions and food banks and unemployment offices. And then maybe a tour of the abandoned factories and manufacturing facilities.
    As long as they remain centrist, de-facto godless, and anti nationalist, and free trade globalist, they will get nowhere. Maybe they need to fire Carl Rove and hire Pat Buchanan.
