To go along with what Brian said, I like to be a good example of the RKBA by being a loving boyfriend, good Soldier, reliable Fraternity Brother, and something above a mediocre student.

Frank, you and I agree 100%. The term I mooted at the beginning was just a springboard term, I have no emotional attachment to it, it's probably not the best choice of terms, and I am quite happy to abandon it. Brainstorming has to start someplace. It's never what is really working at the end of the conversation though. Let's use some brainpower here.

To the others, let me understand this: We should expect to maintain our rights by not worrying about trying to sell the program to other voters who might or might not vote for RKBA candidates in the next election cycle. And until then we are not advocating going out of our way to associate with or attempt to sell what we believe in as a social norm to people who might be receptive to the program if it were explained to them in a way that they might actually understand?

Curious lack of engagement and creative thinking.

Lack of agreeing with you is not synonymous with lack of engagement or creative thinking.

I don't disagee with that either. We each should serve as we see fit.

I'm sorry I brought the subject up. I respectfully retire from the thread.

This one's been all over the place, and the OP claims to have bowed out, so this is a good place to close it.
