If you want to know when a war might be coming, you just watch the U.S. and see when it starts cutting down on its defenses. It's the surest barometer in the world. Will Rogers

"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." -- Robert A. Heinlein

We believe that Americans should have the right to own guns because traditionally justice has always come from the ballot box, the jury box, but, if these failed, the cartridge box. Rep. Steve Symms

“A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares about more than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.” --John Stuart Mill “Men trained in arms from their infancy, and animated by the love of liberty, will afford neither a cheap nor easy conquest.” --The Declaration of the Continental Congress, July 1775 “Rome did not create a great empire by having meetings; they did it by killing all those who opposed them.” --Unknown “The mission of the Marine rifle squad is to locate, close with and destroy the enemy by fire and maneuver or to repel the enemy’s assault by fire and close combat.” --Guidebook for Marines “Happiness is interlocking fields of fire.” --Jarhead_22 "I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery." --Jean-Jacques Rousseau "Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it.” --Helen Keller "Laddy, without war we'd all be swinging in the fucking trees. It's God's own university and anyone who says different is a self-deluding fairy." --Doc McLeod, “In Pharoah’s Army,” by Tobias Wolff "We must remember that one man is much the same as another, and that he is best who is trained in the severest school." --Thucydides “Yes, makin' mock o' uniforms that guard you while you sleep Is cheaper than them uniforms, an' they're starvation cheap; An' hustlin' drunken soldiers when they're goin' large a bit Is five times better business than paradin' in full kit. Then it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, 'ow's yer soul?" But it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll, The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll, O it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll.” --Rudyard Kipling, “Tommy”

Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. ... The right of citizens to bear arms is just one guarantee against arbitrary government, one more safegaurd against the tyranny which now appears remote in America but which historically has proven to be possible. Hubert H Humprey, United States Senator (D-Minnesota) 1960

From our compatriots at www.HK91.com from their QUOTE LIBRARY: "Ideas are more dangerous than guns. We wouldn't let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas?" -Josef Stalin "If the [politcal] opposition disarms, well and good. If it refuses to disarm, we shall disarm it ourselves." -Josef Stalin "The United States should get rid of its militias." -Josef Stalin, 1933 “The thing the sets the American Christian apart from all other people in the world, is ‘he will die on his feet, before he will live on his knees.’” -George Washington "Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than live as slaves." -Sir Winston Churchill, The Gathering Storm,1948 "Every good Communist should know that political power grows out of the barrel of a gun. The Communist party must control the guns" -Mao Tse Tung

"The average age of the world's great civilizations has been two hundred years. These nations have progressed through the following sequence: from bondage to spiritual faith, from spiritual faith to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependency, from dependency back to bondage." --Lord Alexander Tyler on the fall of the Athenian republic

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle. SUN TZU ON THE ART OF WAR

Can anyone say "compromise?" When we give in, we lose. When we give in a little more, we lose some more. We've compromised on licensing, mandated safety courses, registration, NICS, "assault weapons," "junk gun" regs., mag. capacity, etc. If compromise is the way to win this war, then soon we'll be compromising away our right to buy guns from dealers, then private sales, then carry, then ownership. We will eventually compromise our rights all the way to confiscation. No more compromises. It's time we take back our rights. - --ED DUBE

Under Capitalism, most property is owned and controlled by the individual owners. Under Communism it is owned and controlled by the state. Under the "Third Way" of Fascism, (including Labour Party Britain and increasingly so in the US) it is owned by individuals, but strictly controlled by the state. - --KEN MAURER
