Today McCain stated the war could be won by 2013. Please look at the polls - The vast majority of Americans do not want it won. They want it ended. Is McCain's teleprompter run by the Democratic National Committee? This year's election is about the internal financial situation of American citizens. It is about fuel prices, health care, social security, and job creation. It is a simple fact that important swing voters are turning off and tuning out McCain when he talks about his family military heritage, winning the war, listening to the generals in the field about pulling out, and building up the military. This type blundering is not good for Republican candidates at all levels and we need them even if we don't like some of them. Republican candidates must concentrate on the American electorate to be in a position to protect our gun rights. It is no longer enough for gun owners to be politicized. This year we must be politically active. We have no choice.
