I want a strong supporter AND defender of the second in that office, but what does a treaty have to do with anything?
You shouldnt call yourself the most hated member.
"#1 Contrarian" would be more fitting.

Who do you like for the job? Smitherman?

As far as why a UN treaty matters?

1. We do need to fight against it to ensure none of it affects our rights.

2. Things like this help to get the voters out. Pragmatic motivation by fear.

I prefer reason over fear but we need the GOP to get aggressive now.

Granted, in a world where the best interests of the citizens of the United States were paramount, arguably not much. As the subject of the post infers, so simply view the inclusion of the treaty as secondary to the synopsis of the candidates records on gun issues

That said, would it not be prudent, considering the increasing use of rule by "executive order"; the recent history of the blurring of constitutional distinctions when it comes to internal control of "conventional weapons" (which specifically includes "small arms" by definition in the treaty); and the possibility that the Senate may indeed ratify the treaty, to have a foot available to stick in that door?

As far as you are concerned, contrarian is someone who refuses to jump on panic bandwagon. A person who considers alternative points of view to your own without being a right wing wacko.

Yep, that's me.

So can anyone tell me what a treaty with other countries has to do with the AG of Texas supporting the Second?

Rhetoric aside, that is.
I answered it with my #2 response. Directly per government, probably not a lot.

MOST people dont think like you TXI. Not saying thats good or bad. It just is.

Why do you negate that emotions are involved in politics and demand that everyone comply with your adherence to extremely literal, rational thought and not have that mixed with what most people experience such as thoughts and feelings not drawn from pure reason?

You contrarian you!

AG is important in the event we need to take the Feds to court. We may need to take them to court if they try to take any new Federal actions that interfere with the rights of Texans. Feds may or may not use treaty language as an excuse for improper behavior (e.g. Federal gun registry).

I think such Fed behavior would be unlikely given the current climate, but if you want peace you gotta prepare for war.
