I lived in CCP china for work for 2 years. Let me tell you yes I would rather die fighting for liberty and freedom then be a rat controlled by the state. People live in constant fear of saying something to offend the ccp and no amount of justice or freedom exists. You can work hard but the government will and can take everything you have at any moment. You live day by day thankful to just have food for the rest of week. Fuck communism it’s hell on earth.

I agree with the message. Communism means no individual rights.

However, I'd like to mention that even in the US the government can take your stuff at any moment.

It's called civil asset forfeiture. The police can decide to take your stuff away without you been proven guilty, or without even charging you of a crime.

These are the laws that absolutely must be reformed and the fact that Donald Trump has been filling so many federal judge vacancies encourages me that they might be.

Without an actual conviction any civil asset forfeiture is unconstitutional and a fourth amendment violation.

The first patriot act made it legal to arrest someone and hold them indefinitely without being charged with a crime. Honest to god suspension of habeus corpus. I believe that part has been revoked, but shit has been broiling for a long time.
