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

Been to Recently? is a site run by an contributor. Wickedly funny and very effective flashmedia movies and photoshopped posters dealing with gun control and politics. (This one's probably his most famous.) Well, Bastiat may not be running a 527, but he wants to ramp up in the period just before the election - and screw McCain-Feingold. However, he needs some help:
This is the part of the site where I become like a PBS fundraiser - asking for donations for the site. Why? Because doing what need to be done costs money - something I don't have enough of right now to do this right.

That's right, I need money. To take this site to the next level for the presidential election and the fight against liberalism, it needs to be more than funny pictures and informative flash movies. It needs professional level videos and multimedia to be ready for the onslaught by the left this election year. And all that costs money for hardware and software to get it done right.
How much? The shopping list tops out at $5,000.

Some previous purchases have already been made thanks to your help and me working a second job. But because the election season is so close, it needs to get done faster. The Democratic national convention ends July 29th. Their campaign officially starts then, but will be underway long before that. My goal is to have everything needed in place by June 30th so I can get up to speed and hit the ground running. That's a little over 4 months from my writing this. $1,250 a month can be done, based on the number of visitors and fans of this site. Just consider this:

If 1,000 people gave just $5.00, we'd be there.

If 500 people gave $10.00, we'd be there.If 250 people people ponied up $20.00, we'd be there.

And if just 50 people were extremely generous and gave $100 each, it would be a cakewalk.

So there you have it. $5,000 in a little over four months. Can it be done? Yes. Will it be done? That's up to you.

And what will you get from it? Plenty of videos and other features that you'll be able to send to friends and foes alike. Things you wish other people would do but don't because they don't have the guts to say them. With your help those things can be said for the world to hear.

I know I'm late, but I hadn't seen this before. Help him out if you can. As he says, give till it hurts - a liberal.
