Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Quote of the Day - Primary Sources Edition

"Geek, I am surprised to find that I think I am really a Republican, and this frightens me. It isn't that the Republicans are scary...well, some of them are, but not the ones I've actually seen. The people who really scare the hell out of me are the Democrats. I used to think I was one of them, until I saw how they really behaved once they have power. I can see that they're just interested in power, and in instituting as much of a Socialist scheme as they can get away with..."

I probed. "Socialist? Really? A lot of people bandy that word about, and a lot of Democrats will tell you that it really doesn't apply, and its inaccurate and misguided to suggest that's what they..." Kurt cut me off, with a chopping motion of his hand and annoyance that is very uncharacteristic for him.

"Yes! Socialist! A little bit more and more, every time I look closer!" Kurt stopped to compose himself. "Geek, trust me, I know socialists when I see them. I came here to get away from all that krap in Germany, and I don't like seeing it here, not one little bit."

And from TSM:
I am a new NRA member. I have been a citizen for only fourteen years. I believe in the Constitution and the Second Amendment, and when I see Obama, I see Communism, and I am afraid.

-- Mrs. Ly Chho, quoted 10/10/08.
