Michael Bloomberg Will Haunt You In The Afterlife (Page 2)

After his life as mayor of NYC, that is. Certain of his place in heaven, he announced plans to spend $50 million to spread his anti-gun arrogance across America.

This isn’t the first time that the NRA has battled oligarchs. The NRA’s first forays into politics—beyond promoting marksmanship programs—were in the 1920s, when the Northeastern upper-class business establishment began pushing handgun prohibition. The NRA beat the plutocracy then.

The NRA and gun-rights supporters defeated the big money again just last year during the Colorado state senate recalls, even though Bloomberg and his allies outspent the pro-rights forces by a 7-1 margin. Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper then publicly urged Bloomberg to stay away from any future recall campaigns. Hickenlooper observed that Coloradans do not like outsiders, such as Bloomberg, meddling in Colorado affairs. Of course, Coloradans did not treat the NRA like an outsider, and for good reason— in Colorado, NRA has a hundred thousand real, dues-paying members.

NRA can beat the oligarchs again in 2014—but if, and only if, NRA members get active and prove once again that their grassroots people power can overcome Bloomberg’s money power.

Bloomberg did himself in by saying ' If there is a God, I'm not stopping to be interviewed. I've earned my way into heaven. It's not even close'. There is a God, and you cannot earn your way into heaven. He will be a non-factor in the near future.

Once again ... 'A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.' The Constitution of the United States of America is not at all in error. Stay free. Fight Slavery.
