The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.  GK Chesterton

Truth is treason in the empire of lies. - Ron Paul

Ron Paul was one of my heroes.  That's a great quote.

Back when he was running for president I got ridiculed on these sites (maybe THR) for endorsing him (are you still with us, Wild Alaska?) but the people who ridiculed me were "careful" not to reveal who their choice was.  I was out in the open and they were shooting at me from behind cover.  "Smart", I guess.   undecided

Ron Paul is the only politician whose campaign I've ever sent money to.  I even caucused, and got myself elected to be a county delegate (to help elect other RP delegates to the state level)  There were a lot of shennanigans in that primary; you'd think the R leaders were democrats.

I came away from that with the opinion that Sean Hannity was not a true Republican.  But then again, neither was Ron Paul, he was a libertarian.

"Observe your cat. It is difficult to surprise him. Why? Naturally his superior hearing is part of the answer, but not all of it. He moves well, using his senses fully. He is not preoccupied with irrelevancies. He's not thinking about his job or his image or his income tax. He is putting first things first, principally his physical security. Do likewise."

"One of the notable aspects of the democratic process is that one need not know anything about a subject in order to pass laws about it."
                            - yup, Jeff Cooper

We could easily create a thread entirely of Jeff Cooper quotes.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

If you offer violence to me or mine, you may get more violence in return than you can possibly enjoy.

Or something like that, again from Cooper.

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, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Found this on the internet ages ago. No clue who wrote it

There are criminals among us who are both homicidal and incorrigible. Their parents took a shot at civilizing them and failed. Their school teachers took a shot at them and failed. The odds are overwhelming that government welfare programs and penal institutions took a shot at them and failed. If it ever becomes your turn to take a shot at them, don’t fail.
