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

Quote of the Day
In an educated world, Rep. Waters would be hounded from office and reduced to asking if Mr. Hoffmeister would like fries with that; an occupation admirably suited to her self-evident lack of economic acumen.

In this world, however, her constituents will cheer her words, and vote her another term.

Tam, from See Atlas. See Atlas shrug. Shrug, Atlas, shrug!
There's a lot more that's even better, but this piece makes a nice standalone quote.

This was in response to Rep. Waters' (Socialist - Los Angeles) pronouncement to oil company executives that "This Liberal will be all about socializin... ah, uh, uh... Will be about... basically taking over, and the government running all of your companies."

Fox News said that the word she was so desperately searching for was "nationalizing," but I disagree. She recognized her Freudian slip. "Socializing" was precisely the right word, and the one that could not be uttered in a chamber where she swore to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. (And obviously lied about it.)
