I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that tomorrow is coming. As a former soldier, I took an oath with each enlistment to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. Standing at attention with hand held high, I got goose bumps as I repeated that sacred oath to defend freedom. Tomorrow we all have a chance to do the same thing - with our votes. We will be faced with a choice - to vote for candidates who support freedom and liberty, or those who favor "common sense gun control" or some other attempt to place limits on the liberties that men and women are fighting for in Afghanistan or Iraq even as we speak. My brother-in-law is one of those warriors. I'll be voting in honor of his service and his sacrifice. I may not be able to wear the uniform and carry a rifle anymore to defend freedom, but my ballot is every bit as powerful and just as necessary to stop tyranny, oppression and subjugation now and in the future. Whether you are a teenager voting for the first time or you cast your first vote for during World War II, together we stand in defense of freedom. Our voice will be heard.
If you think your gun rights are not being challenged, consider the case of a lawman in Maine - in full uniform with his gun - who was denied the right to vote. The reason: he had a gun.
Freedom depends on you. If not you, who? If not at the ballot box, where? If not tomorrow at the polls, when will you ever have a better opportunity to support liberty?
Remember, Richard Burr for Senate and Renee Ellmers for US House of Representatives. They need your vote.
Tip of the Day: When you go to the polls tomorrow, please be sure to take your family, friends and neighbors. Before you leave, go to the NRA Endorsement Page, click next to each endorsed candidate, or in cases where no endorsement has been made, select the candidate with the highest grade. Then print it out and be sure to have copies to pass out to the people going with you. You might also want to take your kids with you so that they can see democracy in action. Set the example and share with them the joys of being free people who can vote in the greatest country on earth.
