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

OK, Now Some GOOD Political Cartoons

Even some by apparent lefties. First up, from the normally leftward-leaning Steve Benson of the Arizona Republic:

Even Steve gets RatherGate.

And here's the Las Vegas Review Journal's Jim Day's take on the same subject from November 29:

Robert Arial of South Carolina's The State is usually dependable. Here's his commentary on the Ukranian election:

Chuck Asay of the Colorado Springs Gazette has a bit of a zinger for the global warming enthusiasts:

Joe Heller of the Green Bay Press Gazette illustrates the kind of "aid" going to Indonesia out of the oil-rich, Muslim Middle-East:

And I'll conclude with four from my favorite political cartoonist, Mike Ramirez - the only good thing about the L.A. Times:

Art may be in the eye of the beholder, but I know what I like, and knee-jerk America-bashing isn't it.
