“Snowden’s a Hero, Drug War’s a Failure, Guns Aren’t for Hunting” Vince Vaughn Tells it Like it Is!

vince-vaughn-gun-rights-snowden-drug-war

In a recent interview with the British edition of GQ magazine, Vince Vaughn held no punches about his thoughts on liberty in America.

A preview of the interview was posted on the GQ website Monday highlighting four key points. The first point was about Vaughn’s role in “assembly-line comedies” to which he responded candidly and honestly.

The next three topics of conversation, however, is when the interview became particularly interesting.

All too often we see Hollywood personalities side with the establishment. They toe the line with the day’s current talking points and serve as little more than passive reverberators of the status quo.

The line between Hollywood and the government is deliberately blurred, and politicians often use famous personalities to bolster their public image.

When a Hollywood actor crosses this blurred line of establishment cheerleading, they are normally drug through the slosh pit of MSM and hung out to dry. However, this has yet to happen with Vaughn, and most likely because his stance is based in logic.

When GQ asked Vaughn about where he stands on the American Government, Vaughn responded with the following:

“Edward Snowden is a hero. I like what he did. My idea of treason is that you sell secrets to the enemy. He gave information to the American people. Snowden didn’t take information for money or dogmas. Governments claim to write endless laws to protect us, a law for this, a law for that, but are they working? I don’t think so. The consequences are that there is a staggering loss of freedom for the individual. I look at the drug wars and they are absolutely f***ing ridiculous. There is a black market and the prisons are overcrowded and it’s not preventing drug use. There’s a corruption that goes all the way to the top.”

Vaughn calling out America’s war on drugs is something that most of Hollywood refuses to do. It’s a gutsy move that needs to be said by more people who have such a large forum. But it just doesn’t happen.

He also called Edward Snowden a hero, and he’s right! Snowden risked his life to inform the American people about the atrocities committed by the US government.

The typical hot air spewed from the right wing of the establishment about Snowden is that he’s a traitor and deserves to be imprisoned and/or killed.

Vaughn’s view on Snowden, coupled with his next point about gun control, is likely to cause some conservative heads to explode.

GQ asked Vaughn about what he thought on the American’s right to own a gun. This was his response:

“I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don’t have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. It’s not about duck hunting; it’s about the ability of the individual. It’s the same reason we have freedom of speech. It’s well known that the greatest defence against an intruder is the sound of a gun hammer being pulled back. All these gun shootings that have gone down in America since 1950, only one or maybe two have happened in non-gun-free zones. Take mass shootings. They’ve only happened in places that don’t allow guns. These people are sick in the head and are going to kill innocent people. They are looking to slaughter defenceless human beings. They do not want confrontation. In all of our schools it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds.”

Queue the conservative peanut gallery, “But how can he be pro-gun and pro-Snowden?” That’s an easy one Foxaholics; it’s because he’s pro-Freedom!

But Vaughn does not stop there, he turns up the pro-gun notch to “11” in his next answer. Below is Vaughn’s response after he’s asked by GQ if he thinks guns should be allowed in schools.

“Of course. You think the politicians that run my country and your country don’t have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do. And we should be allowed the same rights. Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won’t rid the world of criminality.”

There you have it. Vince Vaughn not only shatters to status quo-supporting Hollywood paradigm, but he obliterates the Left/Right paradigm as well. The Free Thought Project would like to thank Mr. Vaughn for having the courage to speak truth to power. It is quite heartening to see.

  • Vince is on point!

  • Awesome, it’s the truth, and people need to wake up before our government inacts it’s evil takeover!!

  • Vince Vaugn in 2016?

  • What a shame. One more nutcase who thinks they have to arm themselves against the Gubment. Celebrity does not, and I repeat, does not confer intelligence!

    • Why are you even on this page if that is how you feel?

    • Yea there were 2.5 million nut cases last year that saved their own lives or others because they were carrying a firearm. Dipshit

    • Just fall in line, keep your head down. Who needs freedoms, or rights ?

      Afterall, Michael knows best. We should all listen to him you guys!

    • I live in the country. I own a 22 rifle for dispatching injured animals. I don’t need an automatic weapon to make me feel like I’m a man. Gun nuts are ruining this country. You are being manipulated by the NRA to fear your environment and therefore you buy more guns. Kaching, goes the cash register and the gun lobbyists win.

    • Michael your right…only police and government and wealthy people should be allowed to own guns. The poor must not…and of they get caught owning an unregistered firearm or are otherwise in unlawful possession they ought to spend 5 -10 years in federal prison..destroying their life and their families lives. Which is in fact what is happening now. The NRA is philosophically inconsistent in their views and they often come across as douchebags…but please don’t act like your anti gun views are just so obviously right and true. People want to sit and debate pragmatism and effects…do gun laws affect crime? Does it go up? Does it go down? Considering how complex society is and how blunt an instrument statistics are this question is probably impossible to answer. Is it right to send an otherwise good person to prison because he owns a piece of machinery ….is it right? Is it moral? Do the tens of thousands of people sitting in state and federal prison on mere gun charges matter to you or anyone else?

    • I own a gun you dipshit. Who said only the law can have guns? The idea that Obama is coming for our guns is ludicrous but it sells guns. How many guns did Obama steal of yours? Any of you morons have to give up your guns to ” the man”? I didn’t think so. Btw unless you are a felon you can own a gun. Do you have to buy your guns in the street? Can’t you buy your guns legally? Why not register your gun? This whole paranoia is driven by anti gubment lunatics who are sure the gubment is out to get them and if you aren’t fearful of the gubment too you are naive.

    • I also doubt that Obama will instigate a mass confiscation of weapons. What will and is happening is people are doing hard time for having unregistered firearms…to call someone a convicted felon is not to insult them. It could mean anything. Most people in our prison system are non violent then they take away their rights to own weapons. Also more things can make you in unlawful possession of a firearm than just being a felon. Siri have a friend doing 4 years in federal prison for unlawful possession of a firearm because a vengeful ex girlfriend got a restraining order against him. He never knew that that made it illegal to own a firearm …his ex never even had lawful grounds to get a restraining order as they were never married and we’re not common law (Texas law) he fought it all the way to the 5th circuit court of appeals and he knows in visceral way what our so called justice system really is

    • As for your ‘dipshit’ statement….your welcome to emotional outbursts and ad hominem attacks ..I will not take such bait. If you advocate one single gun law…your advocating the government using police to come into people’s lives and kidnap them and put them into cages. That is what laws are. They are rules that if you break them men with guns come into your life to steal your money in the form of fines…or kidnap you in the form of incarceration….or even kill you if you dare resists…that is what laws are. And the rule of law is an illusion ..an illusion for the poor and those without political connections.

    • And please stop ridiculing people who are anti government as nuts or suggests that they are somehow irrational. Governments killed 6 million Jews ….goverments instigated Khmer Roughe .

    • Yeah , yeah, yeah. You should fear the gubment and buy more guns. The NRA thanks you for your support.

    • Our own government persists in a war on drugs that everyone knows only escalates crime…marijuania is outlawed to this day because of the confluence of certain business interests and the FBI s interest in the 1930s …Mr .Maddox whether you say it explicitly or not…you believe the U.S government is nice and warm and fuzzy…they are your father figure…they make you feel safe…and those of us that would think for ourselves and call them out are just beyond the pale.

    • You have no idea who I am. I’m a farmer and I feed myself and my community. I rely on the gubment for very little. If more of you gun nuts picked up a shovel instead of heading to the range you might be less reliant on the gubment too. Ronald Reagan started the whole ” the gubment is the problem , not the solution” mentality and you Reaganites took it to the next level. The gubment is the enemy!

    • I don’t know who you are. Nor do you know who I am. I despise Ronald Reagan..it should be clear to you I’m against the war on drugs…why would I have any love for the man who gave us minimum mandatorily …Ronald Reagan gave a lot of lip service to freedom..but he raised taxes and expanded the government in unprecedented ways. I despise the NRA …they do not go nearly far enough in their defense of gun rights and I hate social conservatism. Your a farmer eh…I am also against farmer subsidies. Learn to compete in a truly free market and stop taking money from government thugs who stole it from people who actual work.

    • Of course I don’t know if you are an actual recipient of subsidies…but I owe you for the ‘dipshit’ comment. 😉

    • No subsidies here. Well I’d like to say it was fun but it wasn’t. You go gnaw your anti gubment bone and mutter antisocial jargon.?i have crops to tend. I’m outta here.

    • I will …have a great day 🙂

  • 100% Correct!

  • Can’t think of a single movie of his I’ve liked. Not saying he’s wrong about everything, but what a fucking douchebag!

    • look in the mirror you hating retard.

    • Marc, you really need to stop using that damn word.

    • Jesica, not really… fuck your PC bullshit! It’s fitting for Paul Evans.

    • The Biker-Boy shootout in Waco… stated with name-calling…NOW everyone in Texas is part of a big social experiment where virtually ANYONE can openly carry ALL THE GUNS THEY WANT!

    • One day….maybe, the truth will come out. All the ones shot were at the hands of the police. They went looking for trouble and found it. Then tried to spin it to where they were the good guys… Just saying. And I am a police supporter. Just not in that instance.

  • @Persephone. “Toe the line” is the correct expression.

  • Who said what? Oh a nobody said something. and ?

  • It’s amazing how many celebrities I disliked even before I found out they were Republicans.

  • Bingo

  • Somehow people believe Snowden is a criminal, The Drug War is awesome, and guns are strictly for hunting … Anyone who thinks that hates America

  • It’s funny I just watched Unfinished Business yesterday and it seems like a propaganda piece for the g(whatever) summits. Now I know it’s just a character his playing but still there’s such uneasiness taking him for his word because of that.

  • Right on!

  • Even if the whore media hates on you, We have your back Vaughn!! Good Job! The truth is the truth is the truth.

  • Don’t talk about my guns. I do t talk about your shortly driving…

  • 2 for 3! LOL! As someone who has trained with a lot of weapons (mostly bladed) the gun thing makes me shake my head. Deciding that you always have the ability to use lethal force and make the right decision isn’t working now! …plus I never see anybody being willing to be account for being wrong…

  • Wanda Powell Acevedo

  • Common sense talk.

  • Fucking asshole…I was with him until that bullshit about allowing guns everywhere. Fuck this bum.

  • Just became I Vince fan lol

    • Me, too! F**k these gun nuts!

    • Roger did you read the article? He supports the right to bear arms

  • Ethan Richardson some words from your fav

  • always liked Vaughn. only flaming closet queers dislike him , well cuz theyre closet queers. not that theres anything wrong with being gay.

  • I’D VOTE FOR HIM

  • I’m looking at the liberal data and conservative data and finding them both ludicrous. They never ask the right questions. The liberals would have you believe mass shootings are a private affair where guns are allowed and killing of family members. Conservatives would have you believe it is in public places like schools where mass shooting occur. They never state how many died.and if the shooter was stopped or when he was stopped and why. In the years 2007-2112 900 people died from mass killings or they want to take our guns to stop a ..000,001,75% of being murdered in a mass shooting? . Police kill almost twice as many people in a single year. You are willing to give up your rights so you can feel safe while the mentally ill are not treated. They go so far back so you can’t see causation decisions made by power.

    • To me the gun issue is a non issue due to the really low per year kill rate. You have a better chance of dying from killer bee stings than mass murder. The real turkey in the straw is the untreated or under treated mental health rates that fuel this problem .

  • Partially agree

  • He’s absolutely right. It’s too bad he didn’t bring up the secret trade deal TPP and all the other secrets councils are held deciding our futures. This is supposed to be a democracy of free citizens.

    • I must say I agree with you about TPP. Spooky!

  • I love to see people freak out after they hear a different opinion on something. Cracks me up big time. Does that make me a cynical a-hole or a human with good sense of humor?

  • Snowden is a hero : he wants you to believe in false-terrorism that justifies the NSA + QCHQ global spying that predates the “9/11 inside job” by 50 years !!! Snowden him self is a galse-flag.

  • Chad Forsythe

  • Real question, was it illegal for people to have guns in the theater in Aurora?

  • I won’t reveal my politics, but Mr. Vaughn is over the top weird.

  • Wow, you mean someone in Hollywood actually has a brain? And actually uses it? I am amazed…….

  • absoloutly brilliant vince vaughn !!!

  • Dang, Vince! You’re on the money!!

  • Guns are for government defense.

  • Well put!

  • First of all, he betrayed his employer who paid him money to do a job which included protecting classified information, and he then stoled this information and sold it to the Russians and Chinese as well as anyone else who wanted to listen. His actions put lives in jepardy, and he should pay for the rest of his life. (Snowden)

  • LOVE VINCE VAUGHN!

  • Someones nit afraid to tell the truth for a change…his work may dry up though …

  • He broke the cardinal sin of intelligence, screw him

  • He hit the nail on the head so far as firearms are concerned

  • Thanks Ed.

  • Jack Covell, Edward Snowden wasn’t informing terrorists on intelligence that the NSA had on them. He was informing American people on intelligence that they had on AMERICAN PEOPLE!!! The American government broke a cardinal sin of our constitution!!!

  • Lol at this TERRIBLY misleading headline.

  • I have read Snowden’s book. And only a brave man who loves freedom and his nation, would do what mr Edward Snowden did! .

  • Faron Abdilla

  • No one rules, if no one obeys. – V for Vendetta

  • … and never forget; at the end of every law is a gun and a government employee willing to use it … to kill humans over pieces of paper and money for the most part … and then for some politician to call it civilized.

  • Say it like it is.

  • ya think?

  • …and an awfull lot of non violent people in jail.

  • The same Vince Vaughn that thinks high schools need guns?

    • Link to this claim please? Not doubting you just a fan of exposing irony and deception.

    • It’s not like any shootings have ever happened at a school/gun-free zone before lulz ^_^ I suppose it’s better to let the children wait like sitting ducks for the road pirates to arrive (Y)

    • What the hell’s wrong with guns in schools? A qualified teacher with a shotgun would protect a kid way better than a locked door and turned off lights.

    • There are other ways of preventing school shooting than the american logic of fighting fire with fire. How many school shootings do you see in the UK?

    • Go live in the UK!! solved your problem, your welcome idiot!!!

    • He notes in the same interview that this quote is taken from that the schools the politicians send their kids to do have guns. Unsurprisingly politicians protect what is important to them. Of course nobody is suggesting that the kids should be packing, but is the idea of armed guards at school so completely insane as to be beyond the scope of allowable opinion?

    • Um, guns in schools will prevent mass shooting you dumbass. The cowardly kids only bring the weapons because they feel ALL powerful against the defenseless. It isn’t like a 12 year old will be the one packing heat LMAO. Just the conceal and carry teachers who will defend the children, like they should. More guns = Less Crime!! FBI statistics homie!

    • Ad hominem

    • Armed, law abiding teachers and staff should have the right to carry on campus

      Just as armed, law abiding citizens attending colleges/universities should be allowed to carry on campus

      Let’s not forget: the criminals will carry their weapons REGARDLESS of school policy

    • It wasn’t long ago that gun safety was taught in public school

    • How many guns are in the uk though? We, as Americans, generally love our guns, whether it be for sport, hunting, or defense. It separates us from the defenseless, the majority of ccw, cw, and hcp holders are the nicest people, I’ve got my hcp and i can assure you this, if I’m somewhere that gets robbed, and they’re showing intent to kill innocents, my 11 rounds and i will make ourselves known.

    • Exactly my point Gabe

  • hopefully no one puts a hit on him for speaking out

  • Goddamn it to Hell, get this talentless asshole off my computer screen.

  • Vince Vaughn. Neil Young The Monsanto Years. Optimism returns.

  • This guy spoke too much truth. His career and life are now in jeopardy.

  • Duh!!!! Wake up everybody!!!

  • No master no slave

  • I’m in the construction industry and as regulations have gotten more and more complex in my 30 years in this trade, corruption has worsened. When will people grasp that less is more? http://www.slideshare.net/mobile/RichPurtell/corruption-in-construction-31439678

  • but he supports israel ..huummmm

  • What about the idiocy of circumcision vince.

  • the U.S. is a nation of laws but there is no JUSTICE . the RICH VIOLATE the laws and pays a fine .the POOR goes to prison ..ect.

    • catches only the small ones like a spider’s web !

  • He’s not deep or profound or saying anything worthwhile, stop shitposing this shit.

  • Shine on Vaughn, shine on!

  • Vince, we need you the movement needs you!!
    Serve your Countrymen !!

  • <3 people using their power for <3

  • Kaine Micheal Freitas

  • You can sure as hell tell the thinkers from the dumbasses on this post

  • Been telling ppl for years ppl are blind an deff unless it’s about some he she

  • If he says “guns aren’t for hunting” He’s a stupid mother fucker!

  • Well he’s got about two out of three correct.

  • Not a fan of his but at addicting info, a bunch of lefties, tried slamming him for this interview! They wrote the weakest attack on him! But he’s telling the truth!

  • “Snowden’s a hero, the drug war’s a failure, guns aren’t for hunting…” well, two outta three ain’t bad…

  • I was wondering what to think about all these subjects and have been waiting and hoping that an actor with a long resume of awful movies would put it all together clearly for me. Now I can move forward.

  • Vince Vaughan is a wealthy Hollywood actor who has a broad public stage which he uses to make ill-informed, factually inaccurate statements about something that will never affect his life. I believe he done it to bring the maximum media attention to him and the TV show he stars in.
    His kids will never go to the kind of schools where gun violence is a daily risk. Somebody should introduce him to the parents of a child lost through gun violence and ask him to reiterate his point to them. This has nothing to do with free thought or speech. Remarks such as his only serve to obscure free thought and give legitimacy in the mass media to an unscrupulous small arms industry that promotes a romanticism around deadly weaponry. It’s time that the half-baked attempts to correlate the 2nd Amendment to what we see in the streets stopped. I know that if the need ever does arise to overthrow a regime through arms as he patriotically asserts, Vince Vaughan will be a long way from the front line and will most likely be cowering in a Hollywood mansion or some holiday home in the Caribbean.

    • Maybe he sends his kids to schools where there are armed adults.
      Maybe he doesn’t have kids.
      Regardless, he’s as entitled to his opinion. Same as you are.

    • Absolutely Alice and my opinion is that he ought to keep some of those opinions to himself.

  • The more laws there are the more criminals there will be.

  • snowden is a hero? for what? pointing out the obvious and already exposed truth

  • Love Vince Vaughn

  • We have to have a government and we have to have laws to abide by otherwise the biggest bullies will dictate your freedom.

  • paradigm shattering ? LOL
    |

  • Give every elementary student a gun! Keeps ’em safe and it’s their RIGHT!!! Plus it’ll make the playground much more fun!!

  • We live in a time of over compliance

  • Every law needs an expiration date, not to exceed 10 years. Congress would have to reshape the laws instead of piling new ones. I also propose a limit on the number of laws for every level of government. I would propose 10 each at Federal, State, County or Borough, and Municipal levels for a total of 40 laws total you would have to know in any place you live.

    • Moses needed only ten t o control his people but they added the eleventh commandment, ” dont get yourself caught “

  • I’m still waiting for a libertarian, in all of thier “wisdom” to explain to me the solution to the staggering losses of freedom to individuals that big business present. I won’t hold my breath.

  • A smart man that vince!

  • The government can label you and classify you any way they desire. The people responsible for making these classifications are as low as local police or politicians. The effect is a control of dissidents and others who vocally or in other ways show disapproval of their actions. You are now judged and convicted without any chance of defense, because you are never informed of these events.

  • DUH!

  • “Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”

    ― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

  • He always had heart. <3

  • Thanks for speaking out Vince.

  • People like this individual does not understand the ‘Law of unintended consequences. U do not have the freedom in America that he is defending. The country is ruled by the rich elite. The poor have little or no say in the actions of their elected officials. They are all in the pockets of the Military Industrial Complex. Which planet did he just arrive from?If I were living in America, I would definitely demand that the Government protect me from the rich. Poverty is now a crime in that country. who makes the laws, not the man in the street. This dumb-ass does not understand this simple fact of life.

  • Because they are putting into effect laws that lobbyists have written.

  • The difference between the Mafia and the government? The mafia does not put you through 16000 hours of indoctrination to convince you they are legitimate

  • The more law a society has, the less freedom it will have to enjoy.

  • I really admire this guy!

  • F both these asshats… neither will win

    • Free thought project. You’re wrong on this. I have researched it. You are taking the comment out of context and putting a spin on it.

      What Paul was saying is if anything, he should do a short prison stretch. That’s at a max. He never said, “I think he needs to be in prison for his crimes”.

      He said that he’d put clapper and snowden in the same jail cell to insinuate that if they’re gong to lock up Snowden, then they’d have to lock up their people to.

      In fact, I believe that Rand Paul sympathized with snowden saying “we can’t have an intelligence community that can do whatever the hell they want”.

      Also, snowden openly supports Rand Paul.

      Get YOUR facts right before you post something that causes you to lose your credibility.

    • woot joey!

    • hey Joey Dasinger, piss up a rope…. ya babbling clown

  • Damn right he’s a hero! He knew what was wrong and he told the people, it’s just a shame that there aren’t more people like Snowden.

    • 👍🏾

    • after he was paid 200,000 a year for 5 years to committ those “crimes,” and is now being poaid more by the russian government. Right….

    • A cop filmed a video of other cops beating a man without a reason and now he’s getting 7 years in prison, what a shame

    • He hasn’t been convicted yet Redwan.

    • Enjoy our Inspiring words and unique style of pictures. Check out the page. 🙂

    • Snowden was doing his job for 5 years gathering all this evidence then he came out and exposed it! I don’t understand why people seem to hate him, I’m from the UK none of this effects me but I love the man! And he made me realise that my government does the same thing and I’m 18 as well.

    • I know John but there’s high chances that he’ll go to prison

    • And this cop situation is just another example of a good cop exposing the bad cops, but isn’t it ironic that he’s doing his job by exposing the other cops yet he’s the one that’s got in trouble… this is your police force where the good cops get punished and the bad cops get rewarded

    • Exactly..

    • If they put in as much effort into catching the real criminals aka most politicians, bankers, lawyers and cops, instead of killing innocent people and trying to just do things to benefit themselves crime would drop drastically. Lawyers take up to 6 years until they get their degree in law, however police can be trained in the law under 6 months.

    • William Binney……

    • Paul Casado I can’t see your comment

    • Yes, it would be great if everyone sold state secrets to countries known to have an anti-American agenda!

      Maybe we could give Al Queda and Isis access to our nuclear facilities files! Go tell all the leaders what spies they’ve had in their midst this whole time?

      Snowden is a hero turned TRAITOR and there’s no iffs, and’s, or but’s about it.
      He deserves to die for selling out the safety of every American for his own.

    • Have you considered the possibility that Snowden is controlled opposition?

    • David Donahue, your logic is the same distorted propaganda exerted by the zionist neo conservatives of the NWO. I suppose you never read ‘1984?’

  • Damn right he’s a hero! He knew what was wrong and he told the people, it’s just a shame that there aren’t more people like Snowden.

      Snowden is a hero turned TRAITOR and there’s no iffs, and’s, or but’s about it.
      He deserves to die for selling out the safety of every American for his own.

    • Have you considered the possibility that Snowden is controlled opposition?

    • David Donahue, your logic is the same distorted propaganda exerted by the zionist neo conservatives of the NWO. I suppose you never read ‘1984?’

  • I cannot believe Rand Paul said that. Why is it that the general public openly wants this man exonerated, but politicians want his head? Fucking madness

    • Because politicians are upset that Snowden exposed them and the government from spying on the public. If I was spying on someone and somebody found out and told the person I was spying on I’d be pretty mad.

    • Because what Edward Snowden has done means that politicians will not be able to lie as much as they used to because their lies will be found out. Just a question of when not if. They don’t like that….

    • Oh believe me I fully understand what you’re both saying, but I can’t believe they are getting away with it.

    • Enjoy our Inspiring words and unique style of pictures. Check out the page. 🙂

    • He didn’t say that lol. He was kidding. He said snowden and clapper can share a cell Lmao.

    • I hope so Nick

    • This post is incorrect. Rand Paul said that Snowden would have to do a minimal prison sentence under current laws because whistleblower protections apply to government employees and not contractors, like Snowden was. At the same time Rand Paul said this, he introduced a bill to extend whistleblower protections to government contractors like Snowden. Paul has called Snowden a hero.

    • Because its on a picture on the internet so it must be true

    • I can’t believe people believe everyt bullshit post they see on Facebook. And the poster should be completely fucking ashamed of themselves for spreading inaccurate information for the sake of a bold attention seeking statement

    • I just watched the interview and I think this post is being disingenuous. When asked the question Rand replied that he had said..”tongue in cheek”…that he would put Snowden and Clapper in the same cell…..this post, through the presented meme, portrays Paul as making an absolute statement. You claim to be thinkers and yet much of what is posted here is hyper-emotional. Calm down and LISTEN to the interview. Your only hearing what you want to hear….a lot like Trump supporters…..

    • Passive aggressive much? I didn’t listen to the interview yet. Obviously. You’re a douche bag David.

    • You didn’t watch the interview but you jumped to early judgment anyways?

    • Poor Bobby Evans…..I have just the guy for you…

    • The meme is totally out of context on purpose. Apparently this page doesn’t want you voting for the best candidate: Rand…

    • Judgment? I do believe I said, “I cannot believe Rand Paul said that”. Scroll up and you can all see for yourselves. It’s amazing how many people have become expert douchebags politicians over night. Bunch of fucking Google alumni on here. THANKS FACEBOOK!!
      Stand with RAND!

  • I think that Rand Paul never said he wants Snowden in prison

    • Here is the interview transcript. It sounds like he sympathizes with

    • Snowden, but also recognizes that rule of law comes into play: http://reason.com/reasontv/2015/06/04/rand-paul-on-edward-snowden

    • “No, I think that there has to be some punishment, but I think the other side’s been crazy over the top with people who say they want to shoot Snowden, or they want to hang him….I think that one of the things we’ve tried to promote is a reform that would make things different. Snowden has said he would have tried official channels to reveal this to someone officially, but that the whistleblower statute doesn’t apply to contractors. So I actually have an amendment that would try to make that so. ”

      Some punishment doesn’t necessarily mean prison.

    • he is a traitor until the US government ceases to exist. Nobody forced him to sign the non-disclosure contract.

    • He’s not s traitor, he’s a bad employee. Not the same thing there buddy lol

    • He is a hero turned traitor.
      He betrayed the US when he swapped secrets for safety.

    • That’s very interesting Tao Fallenstar. I guess I never thought about it like that before. I’ll definitely have to look more into these accusations before I change my opinion, but as for now my opinion stands.

  • Rand Paul was talking about NSA spying before Ed Snowden… Ron Paul was talking about NSA spying in the 80’s! What are you, fucking dumb?

    • They were talking about it because of William Binney. Edward Snowden couldn’t stand in Binney’s shadow

    • I agree. Although… Binney himself expressed admiration for Snowden. There was still some measure of deniability until Snowden stole the documents. That was the smoking gun, collaborating everything Binney said. Those who knew anything about Binney didn’t need the documents, since they knew he was the one who designed most of the program, lol.

    • Paul said that he would need to go to prison because current whistleblower protection laws don’t extend to contractors, which is what Snowden was. At the same time, Paul introduced a bill that would extend those whitleblower protections to contractors.

    • Randal is a fraud. He’s like the Bernie Sanders of the Right. It’s all political theater. Politicians give speeches so people like you will go out and tell everyone how they’re the real deal or how they want hope and change. Here’s a photo of Randal “battling the establishment.” Notice how all the seats are empty?

    • I’m glad you took a break from your utopian daydreaming and deciding whether or not you feel more like an anarchist or socialist today in order to educate me, but here’s the thing- I never said anyone was “the real deal” and I certainly made no mention of wanting “hope and change”, lol.

  • I’m Canadian so I have no idea who this Edward Snowden is can someone explain

    • Edward Snowden worked for the NSA which was spying on US citizens and US allies. Snowden thought it was wrong to do so, and he alerted the American public that the government were spying on us and taking away our rights to privacy.

    • Well goddamn! That’s awesome right on bud! I only ask this cus well I concern myself about the states because they’re my neighbors I should be concerned about ur peoples safety and freedom just like i care about mine. I don’t give two shits about ur government. so right on

    • He doesn’t want snowden in prison. This post is bs.

    • But he has wavered on other big issues he used to stand strong on.

    • Like what?

    • He’s the only one who stands up for the entire bill of rights and the constitution.

    • “Free thought project. You’re wrong on this. I have researched it. You are taking the comment out of context and putting a spin on it.

      What Paul was saying is if anything, he should do a short prison stretch. That’s at a max. He never said, “I think he needs to be in prison for his crimes”.

      He said that he’d put clapper and snowden in the same jail cell to insinuate that if they’re gong to lock up Snowden, then they’d have to lock up their people to.

      In fact, I believe that Rand Paul sympathized with snowden saying “we can’t have an intelligence community that can do whatever the hell they want”.

      Also, snowden openly supports Rand Paul.

    • Read, then re-read the 4th Amendment in our Bill of Rights. Not illegal WITH a warrant, but still immoral if done without just cause, as in mass surveillance.

    • You are incorrect. The program has not stopped it was included under a different act name and this program continues to this day. The legal language was simple modified. Rather than give someone who owns a law firm and studies constitutional law and strict legal code your illuminating misinformation, how about you read the patriot act as well as it new addition the freedom act. The bill, however, would require phone companies to maintain phone records that the government could later search. The legislation also includes provisions for “roving wiretaps” and “lone wolf” surveillance demanded by the FBI and the US Department of Justice. The only difference is that private companies will manage full wire tapps on very single call that takes place in America.

    • Legal does not make it right. Damn shame people care more about legal than right and wrong. Smh

    • If you actually support the Patriot Act or think it should trump the SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND, do NOT consider yourself American. There is NOTHING Patriotic about the Patriot Act.

    • They rest their case.

    • Lol yes he did

    • I agree that the meme takes Rand out of context, but he did make reference to putting Snowden in jail.

    • Soo…mike grunskin..hmm..this is akward

    • If we are going to lose knee jerk reactionaries who can’t even do a simple google search before exploding on a rant.. then, well, no big loss. No offense Mike… we are looking for critical thinkers. (y)

    • Ooooooh!!!!! FATALITY^

    • Do critical thinkers ignore the fact that William Binney exposed “Snowden’s info” YEARS AGO?????

    • The post is a little miss leading. Not a huge fan of trump and Rand is most likely my candidate even tho he wants a light sentence. Snowden is a hero and should be treated that way

    • People are posting fake information without any research

    • Paul said that Snowden would need to go to prison because current whistleblower protection laws don’t extend to contractors, which is what Snowden was. At the same time, Paul introduced a bill that would extend those whistleblower protections to contractors. That’s the facts. Rand Paul is being taken completely out of context here, and that’s fucked up.

    • “I’ve sort of tongue-in-cheek said that if I had the choice, I’d put Clapper and Snowden in the same jail cell for about the same period of time. That’s not a serious question, but I think it’d be an interesting debate they might have about liberty versus security.”
      -Rand Paul

      Tongue-in-cheek: phr. & comp. abb. a phrase said when the speaker is joking or not being sincere.

    • Don’t know if you don’t understand the term tongue in cheek, or purposely trying demonize Paul. Both are bad qualities, especially from a page trying to promote truth.

    • James, Binney and Drake are heroes, too. However, they tried to use the proper channels to fight NSA. Snowden took it to the people. Everything Binney and Drake said was true, there was just no hard evidence to show the people. Snowden provided that.

    • Also Paul has been talking about NSA spying as long as he has been in the public spotlight. Years before Snowden revealed anything. Even bringing it up when campaigning for Ron in 2008. So another misleading thing about this post.

    • I like this page but I’m now wondering how many innacuracies I’m regurgitating.

    • And Bernie Sanders supports a pardon for Snowden.

    • Also Rand says he doesn’t believe snowden deserves the death penalty or life in prison. Again tho Sanders gets it.
      http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/01/06/snowden-clemency-sanders-nsa/4344467/

    • I have seen a lot of stuff on Bernie and to be honest I like a lot of it . I just can’t get passed that whole socialist thing . That is the wrong direction for this country.

    • People love to take little soundbytes from Paul and spin what he says to push their agenda. Haha “Free Thought” project only when it doesnt mean thinking for other people

    • A picture on the internet says Rand Paul WANTS Edward Snowden in prison, it must be true

    • I enjoy a lot of your points, but taking a sound bite and using it out of context is not what I would call critical thinking…..

    • Bashing Rand who wants to audit the Fed? Wtf is wrong with you. Snowden could get pardoned

    • A traitor gives information to foreign governments
      Snowden informed the AMERICAN people of the wrongs of our federal government.

    • Anthony that photo comment is inaccurate

    • Bernie Sanders is like Trump: they’re both opportunists who simply say what they think people want to hear. One example for both of them are gun laws. They both all over the map with what they say their opinions are, and consistency contradict themselves.

    • Paul did backstab his dad pretty good. If he got into office he would fall in line and it would be business as usual.

    • You Randroids terrify me.

      Rand W. Obama

    • Keith Hamilton Well maybe you shouldn’t blindly follow and be a individual who does research? #NotTheAmericanWay

    • @ Ed Harrison

    • Do any of you know what “tongue in cheek” means? Because he prefaced his comments with that… Meaning in a jokingly way. You are absolutely moronic if you believe Rand Paul would actually imprison him. Not after his stance on the NSA.

    • Ok…Rand Paul said that we should attempt to coax Edward Snowden back from Russia by promising a fair trial and a reasonable sentence. Like a sentence cap. (This is often done in extraditions where the defendant is assured a certain sentence if found guilty.)
      Rand Paul , if you read what he has wrote and said about Snowden you will see he clearly sympathizes with him.
      Rand Paul is a ultra libertarian pretending to be more conservative than he is. He is a fucking Trojan horse in a war that is very real. So many innocent people sit in our federal prisons for nothing..Rand Paul is their best hope.
      Instead of masterbating on Facebook complaining about how the system is utterly corrupt and using that as an excuse to do nothing. Why not support a libertarian candidate that just might have a shot of winning and doing some good. When I see a Ron Paul or Rand Paul type candidate win the presidency and proceed to be like everyone else…only then will I be ready to give up on destroying the system from the inside.

    • He did say tongue in cheek.

    • I agree. Totally out of context. Goes to show this page is either irresponsible or flat out ignorant. They will probably be voting for that lying criminal clinton.

    • Apparently it offends the free thought project if you think freely.

    • #StandWithRand

    • Brandon McDaniel brilliant!

    • He was tongue-in-cheek about making them share a cell. He’s completely serious about wanting him in prison – but he thinks it should be for a few years, rather than life. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/05/us-usa-congress-snowden-idUSBREA040CI20140105

    • The Free Thought Project.com You guys are so Full of Shit. Critical Thinkers? You are the biggest Morons ever. Snowden did break the law. Snowden does need to be punished. But, not to the extremes most are calling for. Pretty sure that’s what Rand Paul was saying. There have also been quotes about proper channels Snowden was afraid to follow. These actions set a dangerous precedent for the Nations Security. He still had a responsibility to not only tell the truth but, also not put Americans in harms way. Use your fucking head before you make stupid Meme’s. If you want to be taken seriously exercise good judgement. Pretend like you went to journalism school and you took a class and learned what integrity is. I have been losing interest for your posts and have actually in the past appreciated what you had to say. Unfortunately you are going down the mud slinging path of The Democratic Party. The Finger pointing, blame game tactics are so 1990’s. The American Public because of Edward Snowden is no longer interested in these sort of tactics. You’d have better luck saying “Rand Paul is really stinky” then proceed to stick your tongue out. I know we all want a better time when we were able to sleep in late, get paid for working a crappy job. We all wish we could hang out all night until the sun came up. God, don’t you miss being in college. You can still do those things. It’s called a vacation. But, it’s also time to put on your big girl and big boy pants and be adults. There are really important issues to tend to. The irony of this Democrat fueled temper tantrum you made was this, The Democrats want Snowden dead. Not arrested, not put on trial, they want him dead. So lets make a new Meme for The Democrats to be fair. The problem is Meme’s are meant to be funny. How could we laugh at Snowdens murder? You can’t because regardless of him breaking the law he did it for every one of us. To even use his name is this context is disrespectful. Grow up.

    • rand is not his father and definitely doesn’t act like he is, and Ron was the way back to a constitutional republic, but since that train left the station and we are already partly socialist we might as well stop this bastardized socialism and go all the way to make a system that works, look at the Nordic countries they are democratic socialists and are on the top 10 in most good metrics. Those governments work, and sanders wants to implement it here.
      U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is the only horse in the race that actually gives a shit about you, Rand is owned by the 1% so is everyone else.

  • This is a bullshit post. Paul never said he wanted Snowden imprisoned. If you’re going to present yourself as an alternative to the mainstream media propaganda, then don’t lie to people to advance your agenda. You’ve lost a supporter.

    • They rest their case.

    • Lol yes he did

    • I agree that the meme takes Rand out of context, but he did make reference to putting Snowden in jail.

    • Soo…mike grunskin..hmm..this is akward

    • If we are going to lose knee jerk reactionaries who can’t even do a simple google search before exploding on a rant.. then, well, no big loss. No offense Mike… we are looking for critical thinkers. (y)

    • Ooooooh!!!!! FATALITY^

    • Do critical thinkers ignore the fact that William Binney exposed “Snowden’s info” YEARS AGO?????

    • The post is a little miss leading. Not a huge fan of trump and Rand is most likely my candidate even tho he wants a light sentence. Snowden is a hero and should be treated that way

    • People are posting fake information without any research

    • Paul said that Snowden would need to go to prison because current whistleblower protection laws don’t extend to contractors, which is what Snowden was. At the same time, Paul introduced a bill that would extend those whistleblower protections to contractors. That’s the facts. Rand Paul is being taken completely out of context here, and that’s fucked up.

    • “I’ve sort of tongue-in-cheek said that if I had the choice, I’d put Clapper and Snowden in the same jail cell for about the same period of time. That’s not a serious question, but I think it’d be an interesting debate they might have about liberty versus security.”
      -Rand Paul

      Tongue-in-cheek: phr. & comp. abb. a phrase said when the speaker is joking or not being sincere.

    • Don’t know if you don’t understand the term tongue in cheek, or purposely trying demonize Paul. Both are bad qualities, especially from a page trying to promote truth.

    • James, Binney and Drake are heroes, too. However, they tried to use the proper channels to fight NSA. Snowden took it to the people. Everything Binney and Drake said was true, there was just no hard evidence to show the people. Snowden provided that.

    • Also Paul has been talking about NSA spying as long as he has been in the public spotlight. Years before Snowden revealed anything. Even bringing it up when campaigning for Ron in 2008. So another misleading thing about this post.

    • I like this page but I’m now wondering how many innacuracies I’m regurgitating.

    • And Bernie Sanders supports a pardon for Snowden.

    • Also Rand says he doesn’t believe snowden deserves the death penalty or life in prison. Again tho Sanders gets it.
      http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/01/06/snowden-clemency-sanders-nsa/4344467/

    • I have seen a lot of stuff on Bernie and to be honest I like a lot of it . I just can’t get passed that whole socialist thing . That is the wrong direction for this country.

    • People love to take little soundbytes from Paul and spin what he says to push their agenda. Haha “Free Thought” project only when it doesnt mean thinking for other people

    • A picture on the internet says Rand Paul WANTS Edward Snowden in prison, it must be true

    • I enjoy a lot of your points, but taking a sound bite and using it out of context is not what I would call critical thinking…..

    • Bashing Rand who wants to audit the Fed? Wtf is wrong with you. Snowden could get pardoned

    • A traitor gives information to foreign governments
      Snowden informed the AMERICAN people of the wrongs of our federal government.

    • Anthony that photo comment is inaccurate

    • Bernie Sanders is like Trump: they’re both opportunists who simply say what they think people want to hear. One example for both of them are gun laws. They both all over the map with what they say their opinions are, and consistency contradict themselves.

    • Paul did backstab his dad pretty good. If he got into office he would fall in line and it would be business as usual.

    • You Randroids terrify me.

      Rand W. Obama

    • Keith Hamilton Well maybe you shouldn’t blindly follow and be a individual who does research? #NotTheAmericanWay

    • @ Ed Harrison

    • Do any of you know what “tongue in cheek” means? Because he prefaced his comments with that… Meaning in a jokingly way. You are absolutely moronic if you believe Rand Paul would actually imprison him. Not after his stance on the NSA.

    • Ok…Rand Paul said that we should attempt to coax Edward Snowden back from Russia by promising a fair trial and a reasonable sentence. Like a sentence cap. (This is often done in extraditions where the defendant is assured a certain sentence if found guilty.)
      Rand Paul , if you read what he has wrote and said about Snowden you will see he clearly sympathizes with him.
      Rand Paul is a ultra libertarian pretending to be more conservative than he is. He is a fucking Trojan horse in a war that is very real. So many innocent people sit in our federal prisons for nothing..Rand Paul is their best hope.
      Instead of masterbating on Facebook complaining about how the system is utterly corrupt and using that as an excuse to do nothing. Why not support a libertarian candidate that just might have a shot of winning and doing some good. When I see a Ron Paul or Rand Paul type candidate win the presidency and proceed to be like everyone else…only then will I be ready to give up on destroying the system from the inside.

    • He did say tongue in cheek.

    • I agree. Totally out of context. Goes to show this page is either irresponsible or flat out ignorant. They will probably be voting for that lying criminal clinton.

    • Apparently it offends the free thought project if you think freely.

    • #StandWithRand

    • Brandon McDaniel brilliant!

    • He was tongue-in-cheek about making them share a cell. He’s completely serious about wanting him in prison – but he thinks it should be for a few years, rather than life. http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/01/05/us-usa-congress-snowden-idUSBREA040CI20140105

    • The Free Thought Project.com You guys are so Full of Shit. Critical Thinkers? You are the biggest Morons ever. Snowden did break the law. Snowden does need to be punished. But, not to the extremes most are calling for. Pretty sure that’s what Rand Paul was saying. There have also been quotes about proper channels Snowden was afraid to follow. These actions set a dangerous precedent for the Nations Security. He still had a responsibility to not only tell the truth but, also not put Americans in harms way. Use your fucking head before you make stupid Meme’s. If you want to be taken seriously exercise good judgement. Pretend like you went to journalism school and you took a class and learned what integrity is.

    • He said snowden and clapper can share a cell lol.

    • Yup, he would “love to hear the conversations” of Clapper and Snowden. Rand Paul has arguably been the biggest Snowden sympathizer on the Hill. I hate agenda based media.

  • He’s a hero, period. I have seen this before and have to say one thing though.
    No matter how you look at it, he did break the law. Rand Paul is not looking to persecute him. He wants to abide by constitutional law. We are a nation of law not men. When one breaks the law, no matter who they are, no matter their good intention, they are supposed to be punished the same. Give him a day in jail and time served and it’s done.

  • It’s time for the American people to stand up and defend the constitution and create an United States that will start doing the right thing again.

    The BAR ASSOCIATION is committing treason against the United States of America, and no agency will do anything about it. The people are now being notified of these crimes against this country (the citizens).

    Associate Justice Brandeis (Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438)
    We must subject government officials to the same rules of conduct that we expect of the citizen. The very existence of the government is imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. As Brandeis puts it, “if the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of the criminal law the end justifies the means—to declare that the government may commit crimes in order to secure the conviction of a private criminal—would bring terrible retribution. Against that pernicious doctrine this court should resolutely set its face.”

    • cause let’s be honest here folks, we have no one else. Rand is light-years better than Hillary or Bush.

    • If Rand is “just playing the game” for the public, why does he also act like a fascist behind the scenes:

    • If you watch what they did to Rand, here they follow him for five minutes down the road refusing to make an appointment with him. Rand told them “If you want to talk with me you can stop by my office some time.” Then they stalked him inside the Senate building. If someone shoved a camera in my face for five minutes I’d be pretty pissed too. You know why he endorsed Romney? You have to kiss either republican or democratic ass to even be taken seriously in the world of American politics right now. That was his foot in the door, we don’t have a better option.

Hannels, but known available )

He just shared the info he didn’t go to sine big wig journalist to make the most money off of it. He did it because it was the right thing to do.

    • No. This post is a fallacy. Rand Paul’s words taken out of context.

    • Free thought project. You’re wrong on this. I have researched it. You are taking the comment out of context and putting a spin on it.

      What Paul was saying is if anything, he should do a short prison stretch. That’s at a max. He never said, “I think he needs to be in prison for his crimes”.

      He said that he’d put clapper and snowden in the same jail cell to insinuate that if they’re gong to lock up Snowden, then they’d have to lock up their people to.

      In fact, I believe that Rand Paul sympathized with snowden saying “we can’t have an intelligence community that can do whatever the hell they want”.

      Also, snowden openly supports Rand Paul.

      Get YOUR facts right before you post something that causes you to lose your credibility.

    • Yeah and he is 100% right. He was taken out of context. Snowden still broke the law. Do I agree with the law? No. Paul has also introduced legislation to overturn that law which would make Snowden a free man. Until then the law is the law.

  • He wants snowden to go to trial not necessarily prison

  • Rand Paul did not, in fact, say that. Rand Paul stated that Snowden should be given a fair trial..and he also said that legislation allowing whisleblower protection defenses should be extended to contractors, such as Snowden. One doesn’t need to be a genius to understand that Rand Paul would like the law to be written and exercised fairly, so that a hero like Snowden can come home and legally be free (without throwing the rule of law and national security under the bus).

    • Paul’s libertarian views and his stance as a prominent critic of the NSA have put him at odds with many Republican Party leaders, who consider Snowden a “traitor.” Paul was careful to say that not every government contractor should be free to disclose what he sees fit. But he was sympathetic to Snowden’s intentions, noting he was doubtful any of the information would have come to light without Snowden’s disclosures.

      “We can’t have a government that has no oversight. We can’t have an intelligence community that can do whatever the hell they want,” Paul told reporters Saturday at the Freedom Summit, a gathering of grassroots conservatives hosted by the groups Citizens United and the Americans for Prosperity Foundation.

    • With the intelligence community, the Obama administration and security-hawk senators and representatives calling for maximum punishment for Snowden, Paul dissented.

      “I think, really, in the end,” Paul said last year on ABC’s “This Week” program, “history’s going to judge that he revealed great abuses of our government and great abuses of our intelligence community.” http://www.truthdig.com/report/item/truthdiggers_of_the_week_edward_snowden_and_rand_paul_20150605

    • Rand Paul considering expanded whistleblower laws for contractors Speaking to a libertarian-leaning audience Sunday about ex-contractor Edward Snowden, Sen. Rand Paul said he’s thinking about ways to “expand the whistleblower statute to government contractors.”

      “We’ve got so many millions of government contractors that when they see something wrong, they should be able to report it without repercussions,” he said in a live video appearance to a Florida conference hosted by the Campaign for Liberty. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2014/04/06/rand-paul-considering-expanded-whistleblower-laws-for-contractors/

    • Sen. Rand Paul Introduces Amendments to Cybersecurity Bill Clarifies Whistleblower Protection

      Adds rule of construction indicating that the Act does not prohibit or limit disclosure of whistleblower information to the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB).
      Clarifies that whistleblowers (agency and contractor) with knowledge of FISA programs may lodge complaints with Government Accountability Office (GAO), PCLOB, Congressional Intelligence Committees, or through internal channels. Prohibits professional retaliation against whistleblowers. http://www.paul.senate.gov/news/press/sen-rand-paul-introduces-amendments-to-cybersecurity-bil

    • Reason: If on the day after inauguration, you get a phone call and it’s Edward Snowden saying, “Alright, I’m ready to come back,” what are you going to do?

      Rand Paul: You know, I think justice is about making punishment proportional to the crime. And I think his intentions were to reveal something that he felt like the people in government were lying about. And it turns out they were lying.

      The director of national intelligence committed perjury in front of the Senate committee. My understanding is it’s about a five-year sentence, but instead of getting any kind of sentence, instead of getting a slap on the wrist, or instead of even being fired, he’s been rewarded, and he’s still in charge of intelligence. And I think he’s done a great deal to damage trust.

      On the other side of the coin, can you let people who have sensitive data just make the decision to reveal it to the world? I think you have to have laws against that. So I think there have to be laws against what Snowden did. Did he do it for a higher purpose? Does he have a high moral ground? All of that I think history will judge. But I’VE SORT OF TONGUE-IN-CHEEK said that if I had the choice, I’d put Clapper and Snowden in the same jail cell for about the same period of time. That’s not a serious question, but I think it’d be an interesting debate they might have about liberty versus security.

If it doesn’t fit on a meme, people can’t understand it. He’s saying to those calling for a maximum penalty that Clapper got NOTHING, and Snowden should get the same amount of time…but even then..TONGUE IN CHEEK.

  • Many of these school shootings are false flags and designed to go after citizens rights! Be careful how you paint with a broad brush those with mental health issues. I am beginning to expect the “thought police” to be the next step.

    • remove tinfoil hat from your ass

    • Remove mainstream media from your eyes Charles. Hes exactly right. All you have to do is look and not be a mindless slave

    • Holy shit, and I thought the school shootings were just preventable tragedies. And here all this time it was a sinister plot to take your guns. You don’t need a fucking gun, you need medication and a lobotomy. Holy Christ man. Armed and paranoid, great fucking combination.

    • And what do you think removing guns from the hands of the licensed will do? The criminals will still have them for the most part. The soldiers who can be rallied to descend upon you will still have them. It will only remove an individual’s ability to protect themselves with at least a similar level of force as ones assailants. There will always be crazy people who will do harm to others. Personally I’d be most concerned about those who are mobilised in massive violent groups, not the rare event of some wacky cunt on a rampage. That’s not conspiracy. It’s not paranoid. It’s realistic.

    • For the record I don’t own a gun. I live in England but I grew up in America, but even if I was still there I wouldn’t own a gun because I’m a passivist. But I can see why people would want to have the ability to protect themselves with firepower. Guns shouldn’t only be okay for a select few and be outlawed for others.

    • Rusty Fenders If your not paranoid your asleep!

    • I wish people WOULD LOOK INTO STUFF. And stop with what CNN ect. Ect. Feeds them….. :'(

    • What’s your point Lovey Dlh?

  • Love me some Vince Vaughn! right on, brother!

  • He’s right about the first 2, but i know plenty of people who use guns for hunting only.

    • I believe Vince is referring to the Constitution’s 2nd Amendment.

    • Ah, fair enough. Then I agree with all 3.

    • Everyone should read the Dick Act- not, Richard- Dick…Act. Then we can stop arguing and move forward. Please.

  • I knew I liked this man.

  • Lara end the hate

  • I have an idea…… https://youtu.be/RCXl_2TK9lY

  • Correct most guns are not for hunting. They are for protection from bad and harm,. The cops wearing them proves you need one to protect yourself.

    • Guns in the hands of civilians kill babies, pupils and students – again and again and again. It’s hard to understand, why american society is not stopping the constant murder of innocent people. War lobby does a good job overthere.

    • Guns in the hands of the government do the same thing man! Switzerland doesnt have a problem. Funny that pupils and babies- the examples given- are about the only people who dont have guns eh? Its not the guns, its the mentality behind them. If we all walked around without them we’d be fine. But in America, someone will obtain one illegally. Always. So I say we encourage ownership and change the mentality. Better training, not passive background checks of stressed out people. Be proactive, not retroactive.

    • That is why the best practice is to have your gun on you at all times. If it is on your side . It is not at home for anyone to play with. That is why we had open carry. It was really for a safety measure. The best gun safety is knowing it is right here.

    • Govt kills wayyy more people than civilians

    • No. That is incidental.
      The purpose of a gun is to kill.

    • The purpose of a rock can be to kill.If the person is intent of killing. Anything can be a weapon in the hands of someone willing to kill. Cars are more deadly than guns. Knives and rock will just take the place of gun where murder is concerned. Guns are cleaner killing devices than say , a rock or bat. Real messy and bloody that is. That is why guns are used so much. ease. But killing will continue.

    • Jake Krzynski Are you seriously citing Switzerland? The country where people have their weapons registered and ammo kept OUT OF THE HOUSE?

  • I knew I liked Vince for more than a laugh

    He’s right about the rest of it though in my opinion…

  • I agree with all but guns. They are for hunting … hunting anyone who tries to take my guns….

  • For your “I need my gun to fight against a tyrannical government” crazies….you mean the government that has a military, tanks, naval fleets, fighter jets, atomic bombs, drones, and tomahawk missiles? Go on, tell me how your AR15 is going to be of any use against them…

    • Kind of sad to see folks resigned to their role of subservient slave. Grow a pair.

    • yeah, let me get a gun and fight that military!!! lmao.

      the solution isn’t more guns, you clown.

    • Mike Salvato do you really think that if the government becomes that corrupt that all of the military and police will side with them, and allow them to control them? I don’t think you have thought this situation through….

    • Mike Salvato you are just wrong and brainwashed. I feel sorry for you.

    • The military will defect if it becomes necessary. We dont need to fight a war against ourselves, just hold the line against the first wave.

    • They could try guerrilla warfare.

    • DO you really think they will have a big army when they turn it on their own families?

    • Ryan Cole Aldridge If the military doesn’t side with the evil government, then why do civilians need to be armed?

    • The Thé Bishop Because the military can’t be everywhere we go. They can’t stay in our homes and be there in case of intruders or be there at malls or movie theaters when ppl start shooting up the place.

    • In the same way that every other rag tag jackass rebel army has that has been embarrassing our forces for decades. Bout like that.

  • DRUG WAR IS A SCAM,,,

  • Two outta three ain’t bad.

  • Gun’s aren’t for hunting?

  • thanks for pointing out what we all know already…until he pitches a solution, he is just bitching

  • Guns are constitutionally protected for a reason. And the reason has never been more clear

  • This should have been taught in 6th grade.

  • Love Vince Vaughn!!!

  • Cops are for hunting and Guns are for protection.

  • Didn’t he mean the second amendment doesn’t exist for hunting?

  • take guns away from the police for a start

    • Remove the dog’s teeth , watch him change. That is why english cops are so much nicer on the streets. Nothing to use as intimidation.

  • YES!!!

  • Best scene, haha…

  • Good Guy Vince

  • Vince… I knew you were cool when Swingers came out but now you are “THE MAN!!!”

  • Since when are guns not for hunting? Lol

  • Why does it take a celebritie to say something before people actually listen… non of this is new, actually by over a decade most… why now?

  • People still can’t understand that Ed “The Friendly Spook” Snowjob is a manufactured folk hero

    And this despite bleeding obvious questions,such as how did he manage to download and sort through between 16 and 64,000 individual bits of data a day

    Or why have we yet to see the arrests of any Deep State crime cartels

  • 2nd amendment was intended for protecting the right to defend one’s homestead and family. That’s how I exercise it.

  • Vince Vaughn is a legend? I guess I missed the memo

  • Mirko Meneghetti poteva Frank deluderci?

  • We need to ban knives, glass, pens, tools (hammers, saws, shovels etc.) rocks, bricks, nails, nailguns and anything sharp or ever used in the commission of a murder or attempted murder. That way all killing will stop. Oh, and imprison anybody who is born that has large hands or body as they will probably commit murder also. And don’t even get me started on the martial arts! Killers all of them.

  • I bet soon he’ll go ‘missing’

  • He’s right my guns aren’t for hunting… And nether was the 2nd amendment

  • I admire him for speeking his mind, though I still think gun control is a good idea. Frankly it amazes me that most pro gun people are not the ones arguing for gun control laws.

  • Legendary?

  • You want me to hunt with rocks u dicktard

  • My grandfather was the manager of Weatherby in California for 35 years. Guns are made for hunting and protecting too. Shotguns are used for bird hunting, rifles are used for big game. People will kill people regardless of access to guns. Our problem is with people, period.

  • exactly

  • Omg!!! I might start to actually respect Vince Vaughn!

  • I use my 38 snub nose for duck hunting all the time.

  • Fuck Vince Vaughn….he needs to keep making shitty movies and shut up.

  • Kimberly LaShay, I think you’ll like this.

  • I have always liked this guy!

  • dude’s a republican??

  • Gun control. Once you allow government to control something there is no visible degree of how far “control” will go. You antigun people are retards. I personally don’t own a gun but I realize the second amendment is in our Constitution just for our current government

  • I completely disagree with his opinion about guns, but love that he expresses his opinion and that he annoys people who expect him to pick a camp and stick to it.

  • I really dislike Vince’s films but he’s spot on here

  • All these people commenting like he isn’t pro gun lol

  • Uhm…. not really…

  • I knew there was a reason l love this guy other than the fact that he is hilarious

  • Unfortunately when they do they usually want stricter gun laws…

  • Him and Joe Rogan telling it like it is!

  • (Y)

  • You can keep your idiot Russell Brand. Vaughn is far better.

  • Gun nuts are the reason we need back ground checks! You people are crazy and scared!..Not to mention a little creepy in that paranoid way of thinking!

  • Guns are for killing criminals that rob steal & murder. That’s why the police have them.

  • I agree with most everything but the guns… If you try and take our guns…we will shoot YOU!!! REALLY!!!

  • I wish I could like that 100 times

  • they will make him look crazy soon

  • Love this?!

  • Dude my guns are for hunting and protection… Just got a new one for the hunt…

  • I agree with everything he said

  • He’s a fucking idiot

  • LEGENDARY Vince Vaughn? I mean he’s a cool guy, but LEGENDARY? King Arther is legendary. Genghis Khan is legendary. Vince? Probably not so much. =)

  • Good article, and even more kudos for vince. FINALLY! Someone telling it like it is. You don’t own one of these for HUNTING. You own one in case your government fucks everything up and the country falls apart and you need to protect your family:
