Powers shows that for SDGOP climbers, personality outweighs policy. Gun rights are central to Republican campaigning, but when advocates critique the boss, the propaganda machine shows how bread is buttered.
Funny that Cory also puts the Democratic party over policy when it comes to sexual immoral acts by politicians. Once one sees that both party establishments are wrong, politics becomes much more understandable. In order to fight for your party, too many use personal attacks against members of the other party.
Unfortunately, when you hold liberal Republicans to the same standard as liberal Democrats, you get this:
Steve, we are all tired of your rhetorical game playing. You remind me of a kid who was kicked out of high school debate and is still pissed off about it 40 years later. Time to grow up.
That was the anonymous response I got for asking this over at the War College:
“it puts good common sense legislators in a bad position”
Would you equate those legislators with “legislators who staunchly defend the 2nd amendment”?
Common sense is how liberal Democrats justify their gun control agenda. And liberal Republican politicians do the same in South Dakota. Getting kicked out of the SDGOP Establishment for holding liberal Republicans accountable was one of the best things that ever happened to me.
UPDATE: Back in September, Missouri Republicans overturned the Democratic Governor's veto of Constitutional carry.
