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 Week

Quote of the Week
The same theme over and over again is that the Left, from Wilson to FDR to Mussolini and yes, to Hitler, all think that their actions will make the world a better place. The goal of all of these people is to make a better world. The way to the most horrific examples of cruelty and slaughter in human history began with the highest and most noble intentions. The intention, first and foremost, of equality, of the "brotherhood of man". The difference between fascism and Marxism is simply the scope. Lenin saw "humanity" as the proletariat, and everyone else as the eggs with which to make his omelet. Hitler's definition of "humanity" is of course the Aryan German, and everyone else as an obstacle to be crushed.

Call me a cynic, but the more history (I) read the more I question the whole goal of equality. Now, it should be noted here then when I say equality I mean it in the Marxist definition of the redistribution of wealth. This economic equality is in fact the common goal of all the great evils of the 20th century. Plain old greed and ambition, whether it's the Persians at Thermopylae, or the British at Assaye or the Americans at Manila Bay is nothing compared to the bodies heaped by those seeking "social justice".
