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

Fred Announces. (Finally)

You'll note over on the left sidebar (as if it wasn't long enough already) that I've put up an ad and a link to Fred Thompson's campaign site.

I've been considering this for a while now, and since he finally decided to make it official, I finally decided to endorse him myself.

Let me be perfectly clear: Fred Thompson is not the perfect candidate. There are things about his legislative past that I don't care for. I like what he's been writing and saying, but I wonder if he'll back up those words with actions in all cases if he does get elected. But I like his attitude. He has a distinctly non-politician mood, a "this is what I believe - if you don't agree, that's fine with me" air about him. And he's willing to use humor - even to the point of risking offense - to make his points. I like that, too.

I cannot say the same for any of the other candidates on either side of the political aisle.

So, once again I will not be so much voting for a candidate as voting against all the rest.

Run Fred, run!
