So this documentary just came out and I’m pretty eager to check out. It’s narrated by rapper Ice-T and brings in constitutional scholars, attorneys, law enforcement, judges and other civil rights experts. The truth is, gun ownership is a civil right.
Member of EU parliament Godfrey Bloom quotes Murray Rothbard, spits hot fire:
"Oh, well, Mr. President, I’m minded actually to quote the great American philosopher Murray Rothbard here that the state — the state is an institution of theft writ large. Tax is just about a system where politicians and bureaucrats steal money from their citizens to squander in the most disgraceful manner. This place is no exception. Fascinatingly, and I really don’t know how you manage to keep a straight face when you’re talking about tax evasion, the whole Commission and the Commission bureaucracy avoid their taxes. You don’t pay taxes like citizens pay taxes; you have all sorts of special deals. Composite tax rates, high tax thresholds, non-contribute pension schemes. You are the biggest tax avoiders in Europe, and here you sit pontificating. Well, the message is getting home to the people of the European Union. You’re going to find that euroskeptics are coming back in June in ever greater numbers — in ever greater numbers. And I can tell you worse, as the people get your number, it won’t be long before they storm this chamber and they hang you, and they’ll be right.”
"As an American and going to multiple countries and hearing in different languages the same sentiment, which is that ‘I used to think of America in a totally different way until the drone strike happened or until the night raid happened,’ I really did get a clear sense that we are making more enemies than killing terrorists."
