Yes, interesting. And the Senate Minority (Republican) Leader represents a state which promotes sin and substance abuse and addiction (liquor, tobacco and gambling) and profits from the cancer what it produces/promotes causes.

Add liberal California (Pelosi - Democrat) to the list of states that promote substance abuse and addiction... wine country.

No, we offer you freedom and personal choice, if you choice to spend your money on prostitution and gambling we will not stop you, we DO NOT know how to spend you money for you or how to live you life.

Prostitution and Gambling were billion dollar industries way before Nevada made them legal. Hell, all we did was make them legal! We cleaned them up a bit, made then a little safer, let them operate in the open, in the bright light of day so everyone could see what was going on, and let the individual decide for themselves what they wanted to do.

Freedom can be a scary thing its messy, it can be disorganized, and it doesn't take direction well. Nut, whether Statist care to acknowledge it or not, it is the foundation of this country, What are they afraid of? I`m not sure sure what it is about us out here that frightens them exactly. Maybe its the fact that we`ve chosen to do what we do-which the stiaist clearly seems to disapprove of or maybe its the fact that so many Americans(and foreign tourists ) support what we do.

Nobody but the government and the occasional common thief, can forcefully separate you from your money. So when I see 40 million Tourists a year that's 60,000 a day flt into Montana to spend their hard-earned money at our destination resorts, I have to assume they`re doing so freely. We are sure not forcing them to do it. The government isn`t forcing them to do it. They`re choosing to do it If I had to venture a guess, I`d bet that`s that has the statist so afraid, freedom of choice.

Exactly. The Democrat Senate Majority Leader hails from the prostitution and gambling state.
He barely won last time, this time he is going down, Yes we have elected this fool since 1983, but that is solely on the influx of Californians, which do to the economy is slowing down vastly.

Back on subject, I love how he does not care about the bill of rights, yet If someone brought up the idea of limiting free speech, he would scream bloody murder.

Funny we don't support laws that strip us of our rights, and laws the destroy the best healthcare system in the world, and are we are the problem.

really you cannot, tell me how many countries in Europe that you can use self protection and self defense without the government telling you can't. especially those of the protected class.

Which one allows you to own a firearm of you choice? which one allows you engage in lawful prostitution? More importantly were is freedom and personal choice codified and protect by law? (I know we are far far far from perfect)

Back to the point this glimmer of what this man thinks of his audience will cost him.
