I came across this quote a while back when the Tea Party was being described as a bunch of radicals. Today, Second Amendment advocates are being called radical because they want no infringement upon their God-given right, enumerated in the Constitution, to keep and bear arms. The Constitution puts no restrictions on that right - such as how many or what type of arms nor on how much ammunition you can collect for those arms.
Yet leftists and statists want to do exactly that, while calling opponents to their plans 'radicals.' This is for them - and anyone else who might think they're possibly correct:
"The notion that a radical is one who hates his country is naive and usually idiotic. He is, more likely, one who likes his country more than the rest of us, and is thus more disturbed than the rest of us when he sees it debauched. He is not a bad citizen turning to crime; he is a good citizen driven to despair." ~ H. L. Mencken
***Personal note: between a funeral for our dearest friend and my father-in-law's complications from surgery, I've not been posting very much. While we're still helping our friend's family, my father-in-law is doing better so I should be back to regular posting by the weekend.
