> Really, the big distinction between a basically despotic country like China and a basically free country like the USA is that here in the US, not only can you have certain freedoms, but **you are assured that the government can't take these freedoms away.**

They're working on that. The assurance that these rights cannot be taken away is the Second Amendment, something that liberals in this country are slowly eroding.
