And that is the type of meaningless pander that really turned me off from Newt after he was winning me over with some strong debate performances. It might sound good when he says it, he can be persuasive, but then you scratch your head and say huh? This is some of the claptrap of the UN charter of Human Rights: Article 25. (1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.

(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance.

Article 23

(3) Everyone who works has the right to just and favourable remuneration ensuring for himself and his family an existence worthy of human dignity, and supplemented, if necessary, by other means of social protection.

This is the type of stuff in the UN Human rights charter and Newt wants us to give a dang about the UN charter?

my problem was when confronted by a left hook - he abandoned his promise of an honorable fight and kicked his opponent square in the nuts for being a free market capitalism success story...

What's that got to do with the right to bear arms, Genius?

Newt is correct; that it is in fact a human right. We back up the 2nd amendment by stressing ALL the world's rights. Granted freely and unalienable!

Does a pirate beg for that right? Do Arab tribesmen beg for it, constitutionally? Does it require a constitutional law in the jungles of Africa?

Newt didn't appeal to a UN charter. Don't be a liar! He moves for a TREATY of all who wish to SIGN! If they won't, let them be slaves!

This is purely my estimation of the audience, but it seems like Newt Gingrich got more frequent, enthusiastic applause at the NRA convention than the person who spoke directly before him--Mitt Romney.

Gingrich covered several topics, including opening offshore space and federal land to development of oil and gas. But he challenged the NRA to go more on the offense in protecting gun rights, and the climax of his speech was a proposal of international recognition that the right to keep and bear arms is a fundamental human right.

A Gingrich administration, the former...
