Political Poison

L. Neil Smith at JPFO - legislators who want to take your rights will often do so by convincing you to "compromise". Neil explains why you should never compromise with evil, and anybody who wants to infringe in any way upon any right enumerated in the Bill of Rights, is unabashedly evil. Never compromise with such a creature. If it persists, kill it. [jpfo]

If a political proposal is made that weakens or destroys the Bill of Rights, or if it generally threatens to damage or limit individual liberty, then it's evil, and it cannot be compromised with. It can only be opposed and ultimately obliterated by all of the means at our disposal.

Likewise, as libertarians know, if a proposal calls for government (or any other) use of force against anyone who hasn't initiated force first, or plainly offered to, it's evil, and it cannot be compromised with.

If you try, all you end up with is more evil.

A final thought. There are some subjects that are so fundamental and important that they can never be subject to voting, to the passage of legislation, or to the latest whims or fads of judges. That's why the Founding Fathers (some of them, anyway) insisted upon a Bill of Rights, so that some individual rights could be sacrosanct, set above politics: freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom from search and seizure, freedom from drumhead and kangaroo courts, freedom of religion, freedom to assemble, and notably, freedom to own and carry weapons.
