I beg to differ with Peter Sorowski about Rep; Issa representing most of Temecula. He doesn't know we even exist.When was the last time he came to Temecula

The 49th is a conservative district, and Issa is a conservative member of Congress. He is intelligent and articulate, especially regarding one or our most basic constitutional rights, The Second Amendment. He has led the charge to expose our US Attorney General's Machiavellian scheme to let guns 'walk' to the Mexican drug lords. He is the best congressional representative this areas had had since I moved here in 1989. I could care less how often he visits the district. What he does in Washingtons is what is important to me.

So your basis for how well you are served is whether they fight to allow you to own a firearm. What kind of shallow self serving P.O.S. are you? If you want a firearm join the armed forces and go off to one of the many wars Bush started! Issa is arrogant and.self serving and only cares about his own self promotion.

Jim, if American citizens were not allowed to own and bear firearms, we would all be british subjects right now. Any good representative should fight to preserve the rights we are "guaranteed" by the constitution and it's ammendments. Mr Issa, as far as I can tell, is a champion for what's right.
Don December 25, 2011 at 09:43 PM
Fire arms are NOT the most important things that we need, we already have them. We need jobs and a secure economy. Issa should be trying to get both of them.
Don December 25, 2011 at 09:49 PM
Would David Davis please tell me why the 2nd ammendment is so vitally important to some people,including himself. That ammendment was put in the constitution many years ago, when we may have needed to defend ourselvs personally,I would venture to say that it's not that vital any more.

The 2nd amendment is like a security blanket for a lot of people. Give someone a gun and suddenly they can take on the most advanced war machine in the history of the world. A well armed militia may have been strong enough to fight off an empire from an ocean away who was only half paying attention while using rudimentary firearms, but if you think your hunting rifle is going to do anything to tanks or drones you've sorely miscalculated.

If you go to many States where people can carry firearms they aren't afraid of burglers, rapists, muggers, criminals in general. What they really fear the most is the government that fears their gun :) Just an observation.
TVOR December 27, 2011 at 01:13 AM
I would argue it is more vital now than at any time in the past 100 years. The socialists are gaining too much ground and have in fact infringed upon many of our constitutionally protected rights. Our forefathers wrote the second ammendment because they recognized the potential for the government to become too powerful. They wanted teh citizens to have the ability to remove a tyrannical government by force if necessary. I hope it never comes to that in our country but if the people are disarmed in the name of "safety" then whats to stop the socialists from imposing their will by force? If you don't believe in firearms ownership, by all means don't own any. The rights given us by our forefathers were given for very good reasons. Perhaps you might enjoy reading up on some of our history and then you might see how it is critical these rights be preserved.

TVOR, I realize conservative media have confused you and you don't recognize a difference between socialism and the Democratic Party, but name ONE attempt by the current administration to disarm the American public. What does this have to do with Issa and his representation of his fellow millionaires? The USA is more plutocratic than socialist.
Tonto December 27, 2011 at 03:30 AM
Where have you been. Ever hear of fast and furious?
TVOR December 28, 2011 at 03:51 AM
I don't pay very much attention to any media and I am certainly not confused. I recognize bad things when they happen and they are happening far too much lately. How about a "democrat" president who tries to force his brand of health care on the whole country? You don't think this the action of a socialist? My reply was in response was to another post and so it is not totally off topic. I didn't say the US is socialist, only that there is a growing socialist influence in our government that makes many true patriots rightfully nervous.

I would imagine that it doesn't matter whether a person is worth 5 million or the hundreds of millions that Issa is worth as to whether or not you are prone to listen to special interests. It's all the same at that point.
Don December 30, 2011 at 01:58 AM
TVOR, I have to say that I'm very glad that a Democratic government "forced" Social Security on us. (Is that not socialism !!!)
Don December 30, 2011 at 02:02 AM
I thought this was supposed to be about our Representative, Issa who doesn't really represent us at all.
TVOR December 30, 2011 at 03:37 AM
Social security was an acceptable concept until the government started appropriating from it moneys they knew could never be payed back. I wouldn't have such a problem with the whole idea if the funds weren't allowed to be stolen by non citizens committing fraud against our society and if there were some hope that by the time I retire there would still be enough left for me to get what I put into it all my life..
