I don’t normally comment on political issues. At least I haven’t in quite a while. But today I have witnessed one of the greatest attacks on personal liberties during my lifetime here in the United States. COVID-19 has presented a lot of challenges, but by no means is this new. This world has witnessed plagues and pandemics in plenty. Several of which in the last 100 years. But for some reason, the government has ceased this pandemic as an opportunity to expand control over the people.
The United States has endured under the principles of liberty since it’s beginning. Which, overtime, has been expanded and granted to more people than have ever enjoyed freedom at any other point in history. But today, the proclaimed leader of this nation lashed out against those liberties. From forced quarantines last year, to mask mandates, it seemed like there was no end to the lengths some in our government would go for the sake of ‘public safety.’
This year has seen a radical media nearly criminalizing and borderline villianizing people who choose to not get a vaccine. Labels such as ‘the unvaccinated surge’ have appeared on websites and broadcast news sources alike. And now, the president is waging a war on unvaccinated people. Step by step he has expanded his mandates. And now, he has not only stepped over the line of constitutional authority, he has sprinted way beyond it. Mr. President, you have no right to tell a single person what they should put in their body. None. Zero. You can’t bully the public to follow your agenda. And neither can any other leader in the free world. These are tactics of fascist regimes, not democratic ones.
It is my hope that companies all over this nation, who value freedom and the US Constitution, will stand against these criminal acts. The Constitution was written to restrict and restrain the Federal government. If we give way to their power mongering here, where then is the restraint? And we can’t be fooled when they say, “you don’t have to get the vaccine. You just have to be tested every week.” Oh sure. Like forcing people to being subject to be swabbed every week is really that much better. And when does that end? When COVID is gone? What if that never happens?
It is hard to believe that we even need to have this conversation. It’s hard to believe that anyone would be in support of something like this. If people want to get vaccinated, that’s their choice. Just like if they don’t. It’s all about choice. You take that away and the government no longer serves the will of the people.
My friends, brothers and sisters, speak up. This is the time for vaccinated and unvaccinated alike to stand together against tyranny. We are all in this together. May truth and honor prevail!
Peace in Christ loved ones.
