I was like a whore in church being the only anti-democrat in my local Teamster union. Took a lot of crap. The first week after Iowa elected its first Democrat for Governor in my entire life, I posted the front page story on the Union bulletin board covering the new gov's plan to invite huge numbers of immigrants to Iowa to satisfy big business' (meat packing plants and such) clamor for ever-cheaper labor...All at us newly laid-off taxpayers' expense of course. I wrote "Told Ya So" on it and got perverse enjoyment out of their looks of betrayal. Many of us got laid off not long after... Apparently, judging from his re-election, their memories are very short.
In this, the most liberal county in Iowa, an election ballot consists of a list of positions with one democrat running unopposed for any and all local positions...It makes me sick. Oh, some are closet case conservatives all right, but you have to guess which ones.
We still have the same two loser Toms for governor and Senator: Vilsak and Harkin (he's a Clinton/Daschle butt-kissing liar). The NRA did their part by running ads showing how Harkin caters to the sportsmen's vote with lies then votes against us at every opportunity. It wasn't enough. But it was a lot more than the AMA did.
How did the AMA help protect our rights in your states? My NRA dues at least bought some tangible effort.

Anyone in any other state have room in their garage for a husband and wife, two teenagers, 4 bikes and a dog, LOL?
