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 - Tough History Coming Edition

From the comments to More on Rights:
"In other words I think the only thing that can turn this country around now is to have a strong reinforcement of existing Property Rights by the government"

I'm thinking we might have to explain them TO the Government, at sword point, eventually..

Either way someone's gonna be 'splain'in somethin, at the point of a sword before this plays out..

I've lost faith that it can be any other way..   Look at it this way..   5 years ago "prepping" was something that crazy Mormons did...   Now, there are crazy preppers on TV but..   Thousands of 'real' preppers quietly preparing..

It's not that they ARE doing it.  It's that if someone tells you "I think it's all going to go to hell soon" you argue about 'how' soon is soon..    Not If..

-- Charles Bennett
I've noticed this myself in discussions with customers.  Just last weekend, Tucson had its first-ever survivalist/prepper Expo, and from all reports it was well attended.  Just not covered much by the media.
