Army Veteran and a Republican. The main reason why I’m still Republican is for protection of my 2nd amendment rights. The republican party has many faults, but it holds firm to the 2nd amendment. However, the republican party nowadays seem to be compromising the “Shall not be infringed” part of the 2nd amendment. Everytime there’s a school shooting, the GOP tend to give in on re-qualifying which one of “the people” gets to keep & bear Arms.
My Causes & Constitutional sticking point:
- Pro 2nd Amendment. When 2nd amendment says “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”, it means what it says. Take note of the word “Arms”, which means PLURAL. Take note of words “SHALL not be INFRINGED”, which is being violated often these days, and I take issue with this.
- Preservation of Rural America & Rural way of life.
