Make Your Vote Count -- Prove The Media Wrong!

Saturday, November 4, 2006

Four days from now, Tuesday, November 7, is Election Day!  It is the day when all of our hard work will pay off as NRA members and gun owners go to the polls across the nation to elect all 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 33 U.S. Senators, 36 Governors, and thousands of state and local elected officials.

While some pundits and pollsters may be predicting disaster for our candidates, don’t believe it!  Their goal is to hoodwink you into believing that the elections are already over and your vote won’t matter.  Don’t let this political propaganda dissuade you and your fellow lovers of freedom from exercising your right to vote on Tuesday!

Remember, the only poll that will matter is the one released when the polls close Tuesday and the voters have spoken!

For those who tell you that your one vote won’t make a difference, consider the following:

In 1845, ONE VOTE brought Texas into the Union;

In 1878, ONE VOTE gave Rutherford B. Hayes the Presidency of the United States;

In 1941, ONE VOTE saved Selective Service-just weeks before Pearl Harbor was attacked;                                                                          -FL Div. Of Elections

In 1994, a race for the U.S. House was originally decided by four votes;

In 1998, a U.S. Senate race was decided by 400 votes out of 400,000 cast;

In 2002, an anti-gun candidate in a state primary race in AZ won by FIVE votes;

In 2003, one vote upheld the campaign finance “reform” law;

In 2004, the Washington Governor’s race was decided by 42 votes out of 2.8 million cast;

In January 2006, two votes sustained Gov. Doyle’s veto of Right-to-Carry in Wisconsin…AND OF COURSE…

Where would we be today if 537 gun owners in Florida’s 2000 presidential election felt their vote didn’t count???

Need additional motivation?  Go to www.givethemback.com, which has additional video and testimonials on the travesty that occurred in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when police and law enforcement confiscated lawfully-owned firearms--at precisely the time citizens needed them most for self-defense!  This website provides chilling video of the horrifying crimes committed against lawful New Orleans’ gun owners.

And, remember, this happened, in of all places, the State of Louisiana--the “Sportsmen’s Paradise!” While NRA has succeeded in passing a federal law to prevent this miscarriage of justice from happening again, you must keep in mind that this law can be overturned if Tuesday’s elections don’t go our way.

You can bet a United States House of Representatives led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal.), or an anti-gun Senate emboldened with leaders like Hillary Clinton, Chuck Schumer, and Ted Kennedy, would work to overturn this law and/or appoint federal judges who would no doubt work to strike it from the books.  If it could happen in Louisiana, with the “wrong” congressional leadership, it could happen anywhere!

The only thing standing between similar, future threats to our freedom is your vote Tuesday! 

Please make sure you vote on Tuesday, November 7, and bring your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to the polls with you.  If you have already voted early or via absentee ballot, please volunteer some time to the Election Day efforts of pro-gun candidates’ campaigns in your areas. 

For candidate grades and endorsements, or to contact area campaigns or your local NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinator to assist on Tuesday, please visit www.NRAPVF.org.

And as always, please share this information with your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners, as there is no time to waste!

Thank you very much for your efforts and on to victory Tuesday November 7!
