Quotes of the Day

"Today we need a nation of minute men: citizens who are not only prepared to take up arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as a basic purpose of their daily life."

~ John F. Kennedy  


"The Second Amendment is a political issue today only because of the military reality that underlies it. Politicians who fear the people seek to disarm them. People who fear their government's intentions refuse to be disarmed. The Founders understood this. So, too, does every tyrant who ever lived. Liberty-loving Americans forget it at their peril. Until they do, American gunowners in the aggregate represent a strategic military fact and an impediment to foreign tyranny. They also represent the greatest political challenge to home-grown would-be tyrants."

 ~ Mike Vanderboegh

Talk about having your cake and eating it to. :p

Onward!

It has been a standard throughout modern history that when one generation successfully upstages another, the next one finds their parents to be somewhat ... less-than-respectable. :^)
