Oh, yeah. China is the real

Oh, yeah. China is the real culprit behind the current administration's push to confiscate our guns. Why? China holds American debt which can never be repaid. Obama is simply a lackey of China. China wants guns confiscated so they can march into the USA and take OUR resources as collateral for the federal debt.

We need to run a NATIONAL campaign exposing this simple truth preferably on billboards in highly traveled locations:

"Obama is simply a monkey for China who wants our guns confiscated so they march unrestrained into the USA and take our resources as collateral for the federal debt".

Fantastic

speech by someone I consider a fellow (naturalized) American Patriot. It was interesting to hear and should be spread far and wide, imo, that the Chinese Constitution mentions free speech, property rights, etc. (basically the same rights as listed in OUR Constitution)...yet they cannot keep and bear arms--which we are well aware makes those other rights futile.

I agree with others below that this man should run for some type of office (one in which he's constitutionally eligible).

This was an absolute pleasure to watch. Thanks for posting. I hope this goes UBER-viral.

Response I just received from my state senator

Multiple bills going through CT including magazine capacity, requiring liability insurance, a 50 % sales tax on ammunition, a ban on assault weapons and the list goes on. Here is the response I got.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for your recent communication concerning gun control legislation. As you can imagine, there is a great deal of legislation being submitted here in Hartford to deal with various aspects of gun abuse including expansion of gun permits, number labeling of bullets, restrictions on gun use, and application of mental health examinations and services. Some legislators, to the contrary, do not support any change in current law. I am approaching this issue with as much substantive information as I can obtain including conversations with police officers and a training session at the gun range of the State Police. I am also researching the experience of other states and countries with respect to gun use and controls.

While I am a supporter of the Second Amendment right to bear arms, I believe that the culture of violence and gun use in our country has gotten out of control. My own focus, as State Senator, will be on legislation limiting the legal capacity of guns to fire multiple rounds through gun magazines and clips which now carry 10, 20 and up to 50 bullets which can be fired by automatic and semi-automatic guns in a very short time. Those kinds of guns, which I have personally examined, are unnecessary to our civilian lives, either to our self-defense or to those who are hunters. I would make an exception for gun clubs provided that the multiple round magazines and clips are both registered with the State Police and maintained only at the gun club under strict security conditions.

This will be an interesting dialogue in the months ahead, and I certainly invite you to stay tuned and to advise me of your further thoughts.

Ed Meyer
State Senator

These are the people we are up against. This is a state senator actually implying there are automatic weapons in the hands of civilians. And I love the part where he looks at other countries to see how they handle it.
If anybody has any well thought out points to use before I respond, please feel free to let me know.

My state (New York) senator didn't bother to respond to me

I asked him some blunt questions about the law he voted yes to. He didn't have the decency to respond. I guess he knows that he has zero chance of getting a vote from me, so why bother.

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.

-C. S. Lewis

Folks need to start

Folks need to start responding bluntly to these phony arguments: Our guns are not for hunting. They are our Constitutionally guaranteed right to self-preservation from predatory government!

The Ancient Chinese Libertarian Tradition

The first libertarian intellectual was Lao-tzu, the founder of Taoism. Little is known about his life, but apparently he was a personal acquaintance of Confucius in the late sixth century BC and like the latter came from the state of Sung and was descended from the lower aristocracy of the Yin dynasty.

Unlike the notable apologist for the rule of philosopher-bureaucrats, however, Lao-tzu developed a radical libertarian creed. For Lao-tzu the individual and his happiness was the key unit and goal of society. If social institutions hampered the individual's flowering and his happiness, then those institutions should be reduced or abolished altogether. To the individualist Lao-tzu, government, with its "laws and regulations more numerous than the hairs of an ox," was a vicious oppressor of the individual, and "more to be feared than fierce tigers."

Ludwig von Mises Institute: http://mises.org/daily/1967

“The moral and constitutional obligations of our representatives in Washington are to protect our liberty, not coddle the world, precipitating no-win wars, while bringing bankruptcy and economic turmoil to our people.” - Ron Paul

damn right

Lso-tzu is perhaps the very first libertarian philosopher. He rejected all forms of statism, he was a complete anarchist.

I actually wrote a paper last semester for one of my classes on comparing the Eastern world of Political philosophy to that of the West. At the founding of both you have Confucious and Lao Tzu, and I guess Plato and Aristotle for the west. Each the counterpart of one another. At the core of it all, it always boils down to One being in favor of the state, and the other in favor of the individual; seeing the state as the antithesis of individualism.

People tend to want to say the East is uncomparible to the West, when it comes down to the foundations of each Political Philosophies they always share these 2 same principles. Your either a Statist or an Individualist.

The first libertarian intellectual (Chinese: Lao-Tzu) must be running in this dude's blood...

That guy is amazing. What an inspiration speech. I hope the lefties get a look at this since they so cherish the idea of Tienanmen Square.

That guy had barely an accent- very impressive for someone who recently naturalized.

What a speech!!

Amazing! This guy should run for Congress or the Senate!

Obedience to God is resistance to tyrants.
