Earlier in the current campaign Angle was forceful in her support of the Second Amendment, the right of Americans to bear arms; that is, the right of private gun-ownership. The Second Amendment protects the rights of Americans to gun ownership, so as to provide for a “well regulated militia” in the event of enemy attack. Likewise it promotes gun ownership so that in the event our government becomes intolerable, the citizenry will be able to mount an armed offensive; to conceivably unseat and replace the intolerable administrators. At one point candidate Angle suggested that good Americans should bear arms, and “take out” her opponent Harry Reid. At the time I quipped that she perhaps intended to “off him”.
Senatorial Hopeful Angle has been vocal in her opposition to Elena Kagan, who is about to be confirmed to the Supreme Court. In this regard Angle refers to Kagan’s stand on limiting gun ownership. She calls Senator Reid’s support of Kagan a “slap in the face to every NRA member.” She accuses Reid of claiming to support second amendment rights while in fact he stands against gun owners. She accuses Kagan of being incapable of separating personal views from the view of the law.
Many believe that the most pressing issue facing the U.S. today is the issue of job creation; the high rate of unemployment must be reduced. Those seeking jobs must have hope to continue in their determination to work. The Washington Post describes an interview of Sharron Angle by a celebrated actress, Dee Drenta, in which Drenta asked Angle what she would do to find work for the unemployed. Surprisingly Angle responded she didn’t have such a plan. Angle said it was up to “the statehouse” to incentivize “that kind of stuff”; she went on to suggest that the interviewer might fare better were she to question Nevada Lieutenant Governor Brian Krolicki.
The industry which provides alcoholic beverages to Americans of legal age, in states, including Nevada, is a giant industry indeed. It clearly dwarfs the powerful gun lobbyists; it may be on equal footing as the powerful Health Care industry. And yet Sharron Angle has made statements which if taken seriously could bring alarm to those bottlers. In an interview with Liberty Watch Magazine, when questioned about the legalization of Marijuana, she expressed her opposition to such legalization. She added, “I feel the same about legalizing alcohol.” She stated that she was elected (to the Nevada Republican Assembly) to protect, and she intends to protect.
