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

Here We Go Again

Well, Mitt Romney (actually the RNC) sent me another begging letter - a two pager, telling me about Mitt's stellar "conservative business principles" and "fiscal discipline."  I guess they didn't get the message last time.

So I wrote a bit longer letter in reply:
Dear Mitt (or other RNC politbot – not that I have any illusions that someone will actually read this missive):

I received your letter recounting your record as governor of Massachusetts and asking for my monetary support of the RNC. I noted, after studying the letter thoroughly, that while you spoke highly of your "conservative business principles" and "fiscal discipline," you made absolutely no mention of "Romneycare" and what it has done to your state’s economy.

I find I am reminded by the current race for President of the 2003 recall election of California governor Gray Davis, wherein several candidates vied for the captaincy of the Titanic and then the titular Republican victor proceeded to rearrange the deck chairs – for two terms. This is that election, I think, writ an order of magnitude or two larger.

President Obama, ex-Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid have been boring holes in the bilges of the Ship of State. I have no illusions that you as President can plug them. So no, Mr. Romney, I won't be sending you or the RNC any money this year, or in 2014. At best, I will vote "Republican" because it will slow the rate at which this nation sinks, but at this point I don't think there's much chance of saving the old girl. We're past that, I think. As someone recently said, when your last Republican opposition dropped out,
"Given how the GOP field has been winnowed, this has really just been a race to determine the form Gozer the Traveler takes.

"So this just means the giant Slor is off the table and we're choosing between the moving Torb and the Staypuft Marshmallow man." (Ghostbusters reference, look it up.)

That’s a T-shirt design now, if you weren’t aware. They sell it at I bought one.

It goes out in tomorrow's mail in the RNC's postage-paid envelope. Useless, but it makes me feel better.
