I got another request for funds from the NRA today. I'm a proud lifetime member of the NRA. It's the only political organization I belong to because it's the only one in my opinion, that unambiguously supports giving political power to me - the individual citizen.
But I have to confess, I'm a little peeved that they keep asking me for money. The fact is, they are there when I need them on the national battle, but when it comes to the local battle, where my rights are most seriously infringed, they are a consistent no show. I find that disappointing.
I've read Sun-Tsu. I know they are doing the right thing by not wasting resources where they are unlikely to win. But I don't think putting my money to work protecting the rights of the good people of Texas and Tennessee is the best use it could be put to.
