Chinese Government, the World Leader in Democide, Recommends US Implement Gun Restrictions Laws

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Chinese Paper Says U.S. Should Learn from China, Restrict Guns, Protect Rights:

The United States should learn from China and “genuinely” protect human rights by restricting gun ownership, an editorial in a widely read state-run Chinese newspaper said on Friday.

The editorial in the Global Times newspaper was published after a massacre at a high school in Florida last week, in which 17 students and staff were killed, reignited a long-running debate about gun control in the United States.

My Commentary: Oh, the irony! The Chinese “Republic” is responsible for the largest #democide on record, in the last century, with a body count of about 70 million victims. Communism is one of the most murderous forms of government known to man. But, hey… it’s not RACIST like NAZISM, so… no big deal!

Democracy, or a Constitutional Republic?

The following debate originally took place here, on the Facebook page, “Thomas Paine

(replies from all third parties have been omitted for clarity) 

Thomas Paine’s FB Page: The Sun never shined on a cause of greater worth

"Democracy... a challenge"

“Democracy… a challenge”

Jan Paulson: That’s funny??? Neither my copy of the Declaration of Independence nor my copy of the Constitution mentions anything about a Democracy… they keep refering to A REPUBLIC!!!!!

Jason Gade: There is no significant difference between a democracy and a republic, unless you are being a nitpicking asshole.

Rayn: Good point, Jan! I was thinking that very same thing! To America’s Founders, pure “Democracy” was the dangerous legalization of 51% mob rule, while a “Constitutional Republic” sought to protect the Inalienable Rights of the Citizenry, as established by the Constitution, regardless of the will of the majority.

So, rest assured that making such a distinction is a far cry from being a “nitpicking asshole.” 🙂

Being Governed by Your Inferiors…

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of my friend, Jordan K…

"Plato: 427 -347 BCE"

“Plato: 427 -347 BCE”

Jordan K.: One of the consequences of refusing to participate in [censored] is that you end up being governed by your [censored].

Rayn: Plato understood the true power of the Republic, and knew the dangers of the citizenry becoming disinterested in politics!

Jordan K.: lol i was wondering if anybody would know who wrote that but i shoulda known!

Rayn: No doubt! To be fair, though, I’ve had a picture of this quote saved inside of my computer for years now (along with many others).
