Political consultant Brad O'Leary thinks evangelical Christians have a chance to have a huge impact on the 2012 election. Take a look at this Newsmax article on the subject. You can also opt to watch a video of the interview.
A comment of note is President Obama's view of gun control, which is a bit alternate to what's been coming out of his mouth of late. Since the Supreme Court cut anti-gunners off at the knees by affirming a Second Amendment right to bear arms, O'Leary says Obama's real view is to approach restricting guns through state legislation. Of course, that will set off a whole new round of lawsuits, since the general view is that the Bill of Rights also restricts state governments from what they can do to the public.
Whatever the case, government is always ready to mess with people's rights. I hope O'Leary is right that we've got a chance, and I hope the number of misguided evangelicals who voted for Obama the last time around will wise up.
