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

I Don't Know Exactly What to Say...

But I'll say a lot anyway.

As I type this, The Smallest Minority will receive its 250,000th recorded site visit on Sitemeter since I set up the service on May 16, 2003.

Thanks, y'all.

Check out this graph of the last 11 months of traffic:

Or this graph of 85 weeks of site visits (I didn't save a couple of weeks, apparently, but it's pretty obvious when I got a link from Kim du Toit or Steven Den Beste, or an Instalanche)

For a pretty-much single-issue blog, those aren't bad numbers. (I'm not Kim du Toit, but hey, who is?) And it's a slow, but steady progression.

I started this blog to give me a place to be an advocate for individual rights - a place to voice my views and to hopefully help educate a populace that too often hasn't been told what their rights are supposed to be under the system of government we're supposed to be living in. I hope I've done at least some of that. I hope to do a lot more of it. Thank you all for visiting, and reading, and most especially, commenting. This thing works better with feedback. Thanks to everybody who has linked to me, either in a post, or in their blogrolls. That's feedback too, and I really appreciate it.

As I just checked, visitor number 250,000 came from IP 69.139.92.# and went directly to my February 2004 archive page to see this cartoon from last year's Superbowl, brought by a Google search on "Political Cartoons." That cartoon has brought me a LOT of traffic, and still does.

Well, Mr. or Ms. Visitor, if you checked the front page after looking at the cartoon, thanks for visiting. Tell your friends! Y'all come back, now, y'hear?
