"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." ~ Sir Winston Churchill

“ A nation proposing to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.   ~ Sir Winston Churchill

“Peace is that brief,

glorious moment in history when everyone is standing around reloading.”

~ President Thomas Jefferson ~

“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.” ― Heraclitus

A Patriot’s Prayer...

"To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms, and be taught alike especially when young, how to use them." (Richard Henry Lee, 1788, Initiator of the Declaration of Independence, and member of the first Senate, which passed the Bill of Rights)

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction... It must be fought for, protected... Or we will spend our sunset years telling our children, and our children's children what it was once like in America where men were free."  

~ President Ronald Reagan

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animated contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsel or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”          ~ Samuel Adams, 1776 ~

Self defense isn't a gun, it isn't a caliber, it isn’t a load,

it's an attitude. The willingness to use a gun, a weapon,

a tool in those places, and enough times, so as to

succeed in your struggle to survive.

I don’t care how good you think you are, when the excrement hits the impeller blades, you won’t rise to the occasion, you’ll default to the level of your training.

Normalcy Bias:

(Sociology) The phenomenon of disbelieving one's situation when faced with grave and imminent danger and/or catastrophe.  As in over-focusing on the actual phenomenon instead of taking evasive action or corrective measures; A state of paralysisThe normalcy bias is a mental state people enter when facing a disaster. It causes people to underestimate both the possibility of a disaster and its possible effects. This may result in situations where people fail to adequately prepare for a disaster, and on a larger scale, the failure of governments to include the populace in its disaster preparations. The assumption that is made in the case of the normalcy bias is that since a disaster never has occurred to them, then it never will occur. It can result in the inability of people to cope with a disaster once it occurs. People with a normalcy bias have difficulties reacting to something they have not experienced before. People also tend to interpret warnings in the most optimistic way possible, seizing on any ambiguities to infer a less serious situation.” 

It should be noted by those who choose the road of self reliance, the sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for sudden action and necessary violence. The difference, however, is that the sheepdog must not, cannot, and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest lamb will be dealt with harshly. And perhaps, we should remind the flock, if ill of us they speak, that we are all that stands between the monsters and the weak.

U.S. Constitution - Article 4 Section 4

The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government...


republic n 1 : a government having a chief of state who is not a monarch and is usually a president; also : a nation or other political unit having such a government 2 : a government in which supreme power is held by the citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives governing according to law; also : a nation or other political unit having such a form of government.

As the Founding Fathers knew well, a government that does not trust its honest, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens with the means of self-defense is not itself worthy of their trust. Laws disarming or restricting honest citizens proclaim that the government is the master, not the servant, of the people.
Being a predator isn't always comfortable, but the only other choice is to be prey. That is not an acceptable option.

“Our rulers can have authority over such Natural Rights only as we have submitted to them.”

~ President Thomas Jefferson ~


  1. AFTERBURNER - Bill Whittle

The Founding Fathers and the Constitution they produced acknowledged that we are born free, created with inherent dignity, and our Rights have come to us from God via nature as Natural Rights and that they are inalienable, sacrosanct, and nonnegotiable. They understood that an armed populace are citizens, and an unarmed populace are subjects.

A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his child's diaper... his hands remember the rifle.
