Quote of the day–John Ross

One of the biggest mistakes that freedom advocates make is we often fail to take the moral high ground on freedom issues, and we let our enemies define the terms. This is a huge mistake. Never forget: We are in the right on this issue. We are on the side of the Founding Fathers. They are on the side of Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse-Tung, Pol Pot, Saddam Hussein, and every other leader of an oppressive, totalitarian regime.

Mistakes We Make in the Gun Culture or How to Be a More Effective Advocate for Freedom
From Ross in Range September 14, 2005
[I’m working on a “high moral ground” piece. Here Ross is more succinct than me. The major point to be made is that we need to put them on the defensive. If we are defending we are losing. If you are defending any compromise is a loss. They need to be defending their alignment with tyrants.–Joe]

  1. Truer words have not been spoken (or typed).

    We, in all fairness, should not have to suffer even the slightest inconvenience at the hands of anti freedom forces. All the inconveniences, all the costs, and all the demands for explanations, should be theirs to suffer, and theirs alone.
