What Bill Maher basically said was that if the founders gave you the right to a gun, it would be to stop it from a tyrannical federal government, specifically a government that attempted to take away your rights. But those rights are all gone, and no one has done anything about it.
People here are right that there are certainly Ron Paul supporters, miniarchists etc. who protest the loss of all our rights. But the vast majority of the "right-wing"; the NRA, the GOA, etc. have been silent on the loss of those rights.
Bill Maher's point is also great that it is laws, courts, and civil action that protect your rights, and these have all been stripped and/or bought off.

RP on (the only reason he's aware the other 9 are gone). He desperately needs another session with the good Doctor.
And he certainly didn't get Bill Clinton's memo. LOL

Didn't Ron Paul say that we had to reach a critical mass of awareness to tip the scales our way? Ed admitting they are killing kids with drones, Bill O saying the dollar is going to crash, Bill M saying our rights are being stomped on. Suppose all those sleeping sheep out there that listen to these bozos might actually pay attention for the first time now?
Nice touch. And I like how he failed to notice the attack on our rights until we were down to one left, and rather than join the fight he declares it too late. Deport him with Piers.
This is the article that got my posting privileges revoked:
Send them both to Pakistan. Preferably somewhere where the drones hang out!
about the fact that the government is spying on everyone all the time and will keep the data forever?
Someone tell Maher to remember that the Ron Paul Revolution is still going on without him.
the rest of our rights back. Have to start somewhere.
This the same guy that gave Obama 1 million dollars. Bill does not put his money where his mouth on the show is. He is not a true critic of the status quo. He embodies it.

it was 3 million. Doesn't matter really, the intention is the same.
I do not like him and did not like this performance. I only liked the fact that the audience was shy to applaud when Maher had criticized Obama.
Why did not I get excited by Maher? Because government fraud is getting obvious even to retards. UK Mi6 advised the state owned media, BBC, to regularly criticize UK government in order to build trust.
He provided a really good insight.
I just wished he stuck to this, but what you often see is media talking heads saying something spot on and then contradicting this very point by saying the exact opposite a week or so later (just like Beck has done). Hopefully he doesn't, but i've seen him do it before.
Even though he downplayed the 2nd amendment usurpation for his liberal base, he did point out the fact that all the other rights are under attack and thus making both the right and left look stupid and hypocritical.
All in all a video worthy to be uploaded on facebook and shared:)
He tells the truth punctuated with just enough politically incorrect humor to pacify the neocons.
The second amendment may be "under attack", but his point is that it's been nullified already.
Just open the box and see
Mr. Bill Maher,
1. you're right on the other ones, you're wrong about the 2nd: it is part of being grinding down as well, otherwise YOU wouldn't need to be talk-showing about it, MIND YOU. HELLO?
2. where you and your guests did find anything FUNNY in the topic of your points?
That is NOT FUNNY, Bill.
NOT AT ALL.
***YOU*** WILL ***NOT*** be still LAUGHING in 10 years, at this pace, Bill.
Have you heard about Yuri Bezmenov, Bill, btw?
He wasn't telling us about FUN STUFF, EITHER:
Still willing to laugh, Bill?
My name is pronounced like "see real". I code stuff for a living and for pleasure. I care quite a bit about language.
I think America should consider doing the same, and... ASAP!
suuurrrre the second amendment is not under attack.
