Quote of the Day June 24,2016
"When government takes away citizens' right to bear arms
it becomes the citizens' duty to take away government's right to govern."
- M WBro George Washington


Quote of the Day April 30,2016
The Fundamental Political Principle: "That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy.It is our job to see that it stays there"--George Orwell

Quote of the Day June 17,2016
"The supposed quietude of a good man allures the ruffian; while on the other hand, arms like laws discourage and keep the invader and the plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. ​The balance of power is the scale of peace​. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; ​but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside​. And while a single nation refuses to lay them down, it is proper that all should keep them up. Horrid mischief would ensue were one half the world deprived of the use of them." —Thomas Paine (1775)

Quote of the Day February 18,2015
"Government's view of the environment could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it changes, tax it. If it keeps changing, regulate it. And if it stops changing, keep saying it's still changing." -Ronald Reagan
