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

David Codrea, today:
"The Favorite Son"?
Former Massachusetts governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney was the final speaker and gave what may be a prelude to his stump speech for 2012. By appearing before the convention for a second straight year there is no doubt that he is currently the favorite son of the NRA going forward.
You've got to be kidding.

I wonder if anyone opposed to that will be told how "the perfect is the enemy of the good"?

Of course, I also wonder exactly what kind of "American values" Dick Morris represents that we should be "celebrating".

Funny, isn't it, looking at the type of people who are applauded and welcomed into the fold?

There I go being divisive again.
Sorry for quoting the whole thing, but it was a short post, and it was all pertinent.

Here's Sebastian's liveblogging of Romney's speech as one of the NRA-credentialed media:
03:35: Oh boy, here comes Mitt the Shit. Chris Cox incorrectly says "He was the first Republican Governor in a long time." Umm... and Bill Weld and Jane Swift were Democrats?

03:36: I still think he made a deal with Satan.

03:37: "The Boston Chapter [of the NRA] is a little on the small side these days." I’m sure that'll make Jim Wallace feel good.

03:38: Mitt says we’re here today to defend our constitution, and pass onto our children a legacy of liberty.

03:44: "The supreme voice in this country is not the government, it is the people."

03:45: I don't recall Romney ever being this conservative when he was Governor of Massachusetts. But I'm sorry to admit I'd rather have him in the White House than the Big-O.

03:45: He just took a swipe at Harry Reid. Unless we can turn the Senate around, which I don't think we can do, for the gun issue we need to keep Harry Reid in office. Harry Reid has been pretty pro-gun, and will keep bad bills from hitting the floor of the Senate.

03:50: Mitt is going far afield too.

03:51: Mitt just oozes. I just don't trust him.

03:55: Mitt keeps telling me things he thinks I want to hear. It's what he's best at.

03:57: Mitt stands up loud and proud for torture. I'm waiting for McCain to come out from the back and strangle him.

04:00: Mitt says we have a lot of work to do together, which I'm going to suspect involves helping him get elected for President in 2012. We shall see.
It's all a matter of perspective.

There I go being divisive again.
