    Favorite quotes that you want to share.

    No matter the topic, if it will make a person think outside their bubble then post it.

    A skeleton would make sense. It's has no face, no race, no age and no religious denomination, it judges and is judged by it's actions. If there is one thing EVERYBODY has, it's a skeleton, a spine on the other hand could be debatable for some people-Random Hero

    Common sense is not a lesson you can learn, either your born with it or your not -Theophilus

    Entitlement programs are forced charity at the point of a gun -Ronin

    The American School System is the biggest threat to America itself, along with apathetic parents -Ronin

    The greatest trick the Government ever pulled was convincing the people it wasn't the Devil -Ronin

    It is when people assume they are the freest, that they are enslaved. It is when people think they have no reason to dissent, that they lose their right to do so.-- Lycaon

    -I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you screw with me, I'll kill you all.
    -Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    I dont know if i would say these are my "favorite" but here is a few that I like.


    "The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design." — Friedrich von Hayek


    'Emergencies' have always been the pretext on which the safeguards of individual liberty have been eroded.- Friedrich Von Hayek


    Even the striving for equality by means of a directed economy can result only in an officially enforced inequality - an authoritarian determination of the status of each individual in the new hierarchical order.- Friedrich Von Hayek

    If one rejects laissez faire on account of mans fallibility and moral weakness, one must for the same reason also reject every kind of government action.- Ludwig Von Mises


    “It’s as if we still believe that money can be grown on trees, and we don’t stop to realize that if it did grow on trees, it would take on the value of leaves in the fall, to be either mulched or bagged and put in a landfill. That is to say, it would be worthless.” - Dr. Ron Paul.


    Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state is but a necessary evil, in its worst state an intolerable one; for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer! - Thomas Paine


    It is apparent from the whole context of the Constitution, as well as the history of the times which gave birth to it, that it was the purpose of the Convention to establish a currency consisting of the precious metals. These, from their peculiar properties which rendered them the standard of value in all other countries, were adopted in this as well to establish its commercial standard in reference to foreign countries by a permanent rule as to exclude the use of a mutable medium of exchange, such as of certain agricultural commodities recognized by the statutes of some States as a tender for debts, or the still more pernicious expedient of a paper currency. - Andrew Jackson.

    A wise and frugal Government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government.- Thomas Jefferson March 4 1801

    Nothing is 'fool proof' to the sufficiently talented fool.

    There are few problems in life that can't be solved with the judicious use of high explosives.

    "It's easy to grin
    when your ship's come in
    And the world's all aglow.
    But the man worth his while
    Is the man who can smile
    When his shorts creep up in a knot!!"

    "Friendly fire isn't."

    And my all time favorite:

    "It is not your job to die for your country. It is to make the other poor S.O.B. die for his!" General George S. Patton.

    Like him or hate him, Patton was one of the finest tacticians of that era.

    "Pacifism is a privilege of the protected. They can exercise their pacifism because they are sheltered by those who would defend them."
    -- - Unkown


    "War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things; the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feelings which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
    -- John Stuart Mill

    "You have the rest of your life to solve your problems. How long you live depends on how well you do it." -- Clint Smith

    ".308 ... because people have a strange tendency to get behind things when you start shooting at them."" -- Unknown

    Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands,
    hoist the black flag, and begin cutting throats.
    H. L. Mencken


    "Most self-described "pacifists" are not pacific; they simply assume false
    colors. When the wind changes, they hoist the Jolly Roger." -- Robert
    Heinlein


    "Its not who's right, but who's left."
    -Ed Parker

    He who hesitates, meditates in the horizontal positon.
    -Ed Parker

    Good men must die, but death cannot kill their names.
    Spanish Proverb

    A man's first care should be to avoid the reproaches of his own heart, his next to escape the censures of the world.
    English Proverb


    He who puts up with insult invites injury.

    It is a mistake to look too far ahead. Only one link in the chain
    of destiny can be handled at one time.
    ----Winston Churchill


    A casual stroll through a lunatic asylum shows that faith does not prove anything.
    -- Friedrich Nietzsche


    "Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive."
    -- C.S. Lewis

    "There is no doubt in my mind that millions of lives could have been saved if the people were not "brainwashed" about gun ownership and had been well armed. ... Gun haters always want to forget the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which is a perfect example of how a ragtag, half-starved group of Jews took 10 handguns and made asses out of the Nazis."

    -Theodore Haas, Dachau Survivor

    "If you're not shootin', you should be loadin'. If you're not loadin', you should be movin'. If you're not movin', someone's gonna cut your head off and put it on a stick."

    -Clint Smith

    "If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands, which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen."

    -Samuel Adams
    -I come in peace, I didn't bring artillery. But I am pleading with you with tears in my eyes: If you screw with me, I'll kill you all.

    I don't have short quotes...

    "Power is always gradually stealing away from the many to the few, because the few are more vigilant and consistent; it still contracts to a smaller number, till in time it centers in a single person. Thus all the forms of governments instituted among mankind, perpetually tend towards monarchy; and power, however diffused through the whole community, is by negligence or corruption, commotion or distress, reposed at last in the chief magistrate."
    Samuel Johnson: Adventurer #45 (March 27, 1753)

    In these sentiments, Sir, I agree to this Constitution with all its faults, if they are such; because I think a general Government necessary for us, and there is no form of Government but what may be a blessing to the people if well administered, and believe farther that this is likely to be well administered for a course of years, and can only end in Despotism, as other forms have done before it, when the people shall become so (morally) corrupted as to need despotic Government, being incapable of any other.”
    Benjamin Franklin: Letter on the faults of the Constitution, 1787?

    Just look around...
    Freedom can never be lost, only given away by ignorance, by choice, or at the point of a gun. Here in America we can still choose.

    Freedom First 1775

    "One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that 'violence begets violence.' I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure — and in some cases I have — that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy."

    -Jeff Cooper, "Cooper vs. Terrorism", Guns & Ammo Annual, 1975

    The clever combatant imposes his will on the enemy, but does not allow the enemy's will to be imposed on him.
    - Sun Tzu

    One of the serious problems in planning the fight against American doctrine, is that the Americans do not read their manuals, nor do they feel any obligation to follow their doctrine...
