I am pleased to be among political thinkers, and I hope, political activists My life has always been pretty active. I marched with Martin Luther King in , long before Hollywood found it fashionable. Supporting civil rights then was about as popular as supporting gun rights is now.
Clearly, my views are not bound by political correctness. The thought police do not frighten me. I hope I frighten them. Since your Political Union debates follow traditional structure, my resolution would go something like this: Be it resolved that societal dishonesty can kill you.
That is to say, a world without consequences is a world without truth, and that you can die from that lie. I believe that in your heart you already know something is profoundly wrong. As students, you should search for truth. Your brain evolved to demand reality.
It can best process information against an unchanging backdrop of certainty. Your world is all spin. Actions are further and further removed from consequences. Cause and effect are, at best, theoretical. Equal and opposite reactions are no longer PC.
The Dow tops ten thousand, but our lives are not enriched. We enjoy unprecedented affluence, but our souls are impoverished. Our lungs inhale the rarefied air of prosperity, but our hearts yearn for nourishment. In his book "The End of Sanity," Martin Gross says, "blatantly irrational behavior is rapidly being established as the norm in almost every area of human endeavor. There seem to be new customs, new rules, new anti-intellectual theories regularly foisted on us from every direction.
Underneath, the nation is roiling.
Americans know something without a name is undermining the nation, turning the mind mushy when it comes to separating truth from falsehood and right from wrong. Project Exile simply enforces existing federal law. No parole, no early releases, no discussion, period. My, my -- incarcerating armed felons. What a novel idea. It works, like no other anti-crime policy ever proposed.
Project Exile, in its first year in Richmond, cut gun homicides by 62 percent. That means hundreds of people in Richmond today are alive and intact who, without Project Exile, would be dead or bleeding. The laws are already on the books.
Truth and Consequences
From to , prosecutions have been cut almost in half. So while Project Exile was saving lives in Richmond, federal prosecution for gun law violations everywhere else dropped by 46 percent. Here are more examples. But nobody is reporting that, out of thousands of certain offenders, his Justice Department bothered to prosecute only five people in and six in Everyone remembers all the press support for his "desperately needed" semi-auto gun ban -- that outlawed guns based solely on their appearance.
But nobody is reporting that, out of thousands of certain offenders, the Clinton Administration prosecuted four people in and four in Everyone remembers that media love-child, the Brady Bill. Clinton repeatedly claims that a quarter million handguns have been prevented from falling into the hands of convicted felons.
But nobody is reporting what matters to you: How many of those quarter million people were convicted and taken off your streets for the federal crime of being a felon trying to buy a gun? Clinton stands in the Rose Garden with his ten prop cops, lip-biting in pained support of some new law.
The press does its best to get it passed. Then everybody forgets about it. And Americans buy it over and over and over again. But let me tell you, armed felons can. Enforcing laws is what keeps you alive. While this Administration weaves reality spun from empty air and heavy breathing, the NRA is helping fund Project Exile to keep it alive.

It is also a certain consequence that if you choose to go to war, people will die. Though undeclared, the war is real. From the outset it appears nobody anticipated that first, human consequence of war called refugees, that first stream of tragedy that spills from armed conflict. It seems our leadership is surprised and unprepared, caught short on tents, food, clothes and medicine for tens and tens and tens and tens of thousands of refugees.
Now, I am not one of those conservatives who reflexively opposes everything Bill Clinton does with knee-jerk uniformity. Whether or not we should have gone is irrelevant.
That debate is over. The only good war is a fast and decisive war, with overwhelming military might that results in quick victory.
But that chance is lost. Warfare experts grasp the truth that Mr. That means that ground troops -- daddies, neighbors, classmates, uncles, husbands, and good friends -- are going to die. Are you willing to send yours? More important, are you willing to take a round in the gut? I mean you here tonight. You, and you, and you. You there, listening politely while you plan your next date and your first million, are you willing to put that all aside -- just as thousands of good men did 60 years ago -- and go fight?
Or that, nestled safely in our distance and abundance, we can just wiggle joysticks on remote control missiles and win this If you believe that, you have lots of equally naive company. But an equal number, 2 out of 3, were unwilling to agree that casualties are an acceptable consequence.
We have an arrogant Administration and conspiring media who are getting us into events that have genuine consequences. But then, this President has long seen himself as free of consequences. There is something wrong with a government that purposely, as a matter of policy, ignores the consequences of letting armed felons go free, or of going to war.
To me, that disappointment is the grand tragedy of the Baby Boomers. So what can you do? I learned the answer 36 years ago on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.
Martin Luther King and two hundred thousand people. You simply refuse to go along. You refuse to go along with the spin and facade and vacant language of dishonest people. I learned the awesome power of disobedience from Dr. Racial discrimination was illegal, but violation had no consequences.
Segregation was illegal, but prosecution of offenders was not a policy. King taught us to defy societal dishonesty with action -- and changed our country. Disobedience is in our DNA. We feel innate kinship with that defiant spirit that tossed tea into Boston Harbor, sent Thoreau to jail, refused to sit in the back of the bus, and protested a dishonestly fought war in Viet Nam. Our uniquely American genes naturally defy political posturing.
King were here, I think he would agree.
