You Can't Make Everyone Happy

Over on the ISRA FB page, some individuals have expressed concerns over endorsements for the upcoming elections. Some have legitimate complaints, such as Dillard voting for a mag. capacity bill in '07 , to outright batsh!t partisan insanity.

A big complaint is about a primary endorsement for Debbie Halvorson (IL-11). True, outside of firearms, she's a complete loonball but even the GOA rates her w/ an "A". Some have suggested that the ISRA and NRA send out surveys on who their members think they should endorse.

Yeah, that'll work.

Besides being a logistical nightmare, the primary concept of these endorsements is to inform members about where their various legislators stand on FIREARMS, using past voting records and responses to questionnaires which are tabulated by the various lobbyists, information the 'average' voter doesn't have or know enough to look for. Then there's the question of do you get a vote for someone outside of your district? Why should you have a say in a place you don't have a vote in?

That's besides the fact that you still would have people whining that their candidate of choice wasn't selected for endorsement.

Seriously, if you don't agree w/ the endorsement, DON'T VOTE FOR THEM!! You have that option you know but if you find it so offensive that you just can't stand it, don't let the door hit you on the way out.

Complaining is about the only thing ISRA's detractors do well. They won't lift a finger to help out, but they'll flap their jaws for anyone who will listen.

I shouldn't laugh at this post, but I couldn't help but chuckle. I feel your pain. I swear, if the haters would put even 1/4 the energy they spend on hatin'/complainin' into getting off their butts to help out a pro-gun candidate, we wouldn't even need to have these discussions. It's amazing how easy it is to sway people, and it's not hard work at all.
