Quote of the day–Lyle @ UltiMAK

In reality, you either do or you do not advocate government control over the right to keep and bear arms, you either do or do not support the second amendment, and you either do or you do not advocate a nanny state– you either do or do not embrace the principles of the Left. Any attempt to place yourself “in the middle” puts you in agreement with the basic principles (rationalizations) of those who would violate your and your neighbors’ rights.

Why can’t we all just get along? Because some people want their liberty and others want to control everyone. Are you going to stand on the side of liberty or on the side of the aggressors? Pick one, or stay the hell out of the way.

[Actually I put myself “in the middle”. But that is because Lyle is using a different definition of “the middle” than the one I use. In actuality a strict and literal interpretation of the Second Amendment isthe middle ground“.–Joe]

  1. I agree with the quote in terms of belief systems. In terms of moving toward a free society I think it’s a death wish. We have arrived in a boiling pot of water one degree at a time. Incremental movement is what we need to change the political scene (assuming you’re looking to act politically, as I am) and that means absolutely -working- for things that you personally disagree with it. I consider it part of being a “big person” and I know others consider me a sell out. Since I believe in freedom, that’s perfectly fine 😉

  2. I agree with you and use the same process even though it means that at times I have to be somewhat deceptive in terms of what my true beliefs are. I have come to realize that there are no “clean fights” in politics and our enemies are willing to play far more dirty than we are.

    Not necessarily true in all cases.
