从他上周黄金时段的演讲来看,巴拉克奥巴马总统任期的最后一年将以国外军国主义和国内威权主义加剧为标志。 总统演讲的核心是他要求制定一项新法律,禁止联邦政府恐怖分子观察名单上的任何人购买枪支。 从来没有大规模枪手出现在恐怖分子观察名单上,所以这个提议不会增加安全性。 但是,它会降低自由度。

联邦官员可以仅根据美国公民可能参与恐怖活动的怀疑,将其列入恐怖分子观察名单。 列入名单的个人不会被告知他们已被贴上恐怖分子嫌疑人的标签,更不用说有机会挑战这一名称,直到运输安全管理局特工阻止他们登机。

如果他们的 Facebook 或 Twitter 帖子对联邦特工来说似乎“可疑”,则可以将他们列入名单。 如果您的行为以某种方式表明您是恐怖组织的“代表”(即使您与任何恐怖组织没有关联),您也可能被列入名单。 个人甚至可以被列入名单,因为 FBI 想要采访他们关于朋友或家人的信息!

数以千计的美国人,包括几名国会议员和国土安全部的许多雇员,被错误地列入了恐怖分子观察名单。 一些美国人被列入名单,因为他们碰巧与恐怖分子嫌疑人同名。 那些被错误地列入恐怖分子观察名单的人必须经过一个漫长的“纠正”程序才能清除他们的名字。

一些美国人上榜很可能仅仅是因为他们的政治观点和活动。 任何对此表示怀疑的人都应该考虑一下联邦机构(例如 IRS 和 FBI)利用其权力骚扰挑战现状的政治运动的悠久历史。 美国人民真的如此渴望安全的幻觉,以至于他们会支持一项导致某些美国人因官僚错误或政治信仰而失去第二修正案权利的法律吗?

奥巴马总统还在准备一项扩大联邦背景调查系统的行政命令。 扩大背景调查不会让枪支落入犯罪分子或恐怖分子的手中。 然而,对于那些需要保护自己免受虐待配偶的人来说,这将使获得枪支变得更加困难。

可悲的是,许多人了解新的枪支管制法将使我们不那么自由,也不那么安全地支持扩大监视状态。 就像那些提倡枪支管制的人一样,呼吁扩大监视范围的人不会让事实阻止他们争取更多自由的努力。 没有证据表明大规模监视甚至阻止了一次恐怖袭击。

法国的大规模监视系统比我们的更广泛和更具侵入性。 然而,它未能阻止最近的攻击。 法国的枪支管制法比我们的严格得多,不仅没有让枪支远离攻击者的手中,而且让受害者手无寸铁。 因此,令人惊讶的是,许多美国政客想要通过剥夺我们的第二和第四修正案权利来使我们更像法国。

扩大政府权力不会增加我们的安全; 它只会减少我们的自由。 除非美国人放弃美国政府可以提供经济安全、人身安全和全球安全的幻想,否则他们将既没有自由也没有安全。

  1. Freedom and liberty are mankind’s attempt to escape the animal world. To embrace them is to reject not what nature is, but how it works.

    Alien concepts to man and animal alike.

  2. Rehmat 说:

    True freedom and liberty comes with responsibility which the western government and their client states are the world cannot practice due to their powers based on their existence on corruption.

    Ron Paul had as congressman tried to apply that principal and finally got kicked out of politics after earning the titles of “Israel-hater, antisemitie, 9/11 denier, pro-Iran, etc”.

    In 2002, Ron Paul, made a few predictions about the US and Americans in the future. Surprisingly, many of them have come true.

    1. During the next decade, the American people will become poorer and less free while they become more dependent on the government for economic security.

    2. If Iran closes the Strait of Hormuz in retaliation for US sanctions boycotting Iranian oil, oil prices would skyrocket and you could count this one, too.

    3. Agitation for more class warfare will succeed in dividing us domestically.

    4. The Karzai government will fail and the United States will be forced to leave Afghanistan.

    Watch full predictions below:

  3. Svigor 说:

    如果您想要安全,追求自由.

    Ideological claptrap. Liberty and security are pretty divergent. One area of substantial overlap is legitimacy, which liberty feeds into. That aside, it’s pretty obvious that security is easier in places with less liberty. Soviet agents had a much easier time gathering intelligence in USA than American agents had in Soviet territory. It’s obviously much easier for clandestine Islamists to operate in our territory than it is for us to secretly operate in theirs.

    The pendulum of the west has swung so far into the libertine, that pursuing security will do more for liberty now than the reverse will. Of course, the regime is going about it in all the wrong ways, because security is far down their real list.

    It’s impossible to guarantee liberty with porous borders; the liberty-haters are a majority of the world’s population, so importing them willy-nilly will inevitably erode liberty, as the imported work to impose their preferences.

    This is the sort of thing countries can’t come back from. Security measures can be repealed. An alien majority cannot.

  4. Thanks Ron, and Daniel too, for being the voices of logic and sanity in the matters of peace, freedom, security and the real basis for economic sufficiency for all.

  5. jtgw 说:
    @Svigor

    The Soviet government had an extensive security apparatus to protect itself, not to protect the Soviet people. Ron’s whole point is that the intrusive (by American standards) security laws in France did not prevent the attacks. That is a sign that the real function of these draconian laws is to protect the government, not the people. So the siren calls to give the government ever more powers to police its own people should be recognized for the dangerous and self-serving notions they are.

    This is different from the question of border control. In that realm, it is indeed the prerogative of government to exercise vigilance.

    Intent is really beside the point, no?

    We could dramatically increase our security by deporting all the non-whites out of our country immediately. This would drive the libertarians ape. I don’t think they care much about security.

    And how much damage to current citizens would that cause, given how dependent our economy is on those immigrants? Do you care about that at all? Extremist solutions of either variety are not the answer.

    I’d guess no more damage than the Black Plague, which was followed by an unprecedented rise in wages. Of course, it would cause the oligarchs problems, just as the BP did for the nobility. So it would drive the libertarians ape twice over.

    从您的链接:

    In fact, there are millions of jobs in this country that would simply not be done at the current price without such immigration

    They say that like it’s a bad thing. Oh noes! Good wages for manual labor! The horror!

    But will it? If mainstream employers are afraid of lifetime jail terms, they will not hire. And that leaves only marginal employers to pick up the slack. These include drug operations, fly-by-night underground businesses, gray markets, prostitution rings, and other things from the seedier side of life.

    Funny, the libertardian open-borders shills tell the same lies as the leftist open-borders shills. There will be plenty of employers for them back in Mexico, or from whence they came. See, that’s how migration works – people come for the incentives, and then leave when they dry up.

    Try to think of this issue in terms of the risk to attempting illegal immigration. No one on the other side of the border, faced with a porous fence, is thinking, I’ll take this risk only on the condition that I can go to work for Chuy’s Mesquite Broiler.

    No, they will come anyway.

    More lies. They came here because opportunity. They will leave because no more opportunity.

    But if you want liberty, pursue security.

    There has to be security first before there is liberty.

    The problem is diversity makes security more difficult, and then it affects liberty as well.

    To be sure, too much security and liberty can lead to naivete mixed with radical decadence, and that can lead to Swedenization.

    Sweden, a nation that is now puritanical with perversion. Pervertanical.

  11. @jtgw

    Laws work on the law-abiding, morals work for the moral, and government works for the government’s controllers.

    Laws don’t work on criminals, morals don’t apply to the immoral, and government is used against the governed.

    The solution is to separate the good apples from the bad apples and let the bad apples rot all by themselves.
