Interesting that you would use the NRA as an example. I would use them as an example as well - but as proof what committed people can do without all of the money in the world. I believe I heard Hilary Clinton (it might have been Elizabeth Warren - fairly interchangeable) say that the NRA was the most powerful lobby in Washington, and in fact in the USA. Pretty impressive given the statistics you cite. Imagine what we could do if we had an SCI that was as well run as the NRA!
