HE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND why those wacko birds in the tea party gang are threatening to filibuster threats to the Second Amendment.
I’m sure I don’t, either, but probably not for the same reason.
You see, McCain is a statist. (And, as I have long urged, statism should be a dirtier word than racism, on the comparative body counts alone.) So he doesn’t quite get why a notionally free people should resist the importunings of a government grown too big for its britches.
Me, I’m more liberty oriented. I find it surpassing strange that there’s even a need for said filibuster. Why should the Senate even consider such a bill, let alone need to filibuster it? Why are not those proposing it summarily drummed out of the Senate?
