As we enter a new age, do you wonder what the future looks like? Have you thought at all about the constitution and the freedoms you have as an American citizen? The horror that people read about with the Wuhan lock down, yet we are headed in that direction if we don’t stand. What Libertities have we given up in the name of being safe?
On March 11th, a day I will well remember because my third son was born that day, the WHO declared COVID 19 a Global Pandemic. Slowly, as time has unraveled what that meant we have spiraled through an extraordinary catastrophe of our freedoms infringed upon and our rights slowly taken away.
What do I mean? Did you know that you are Constitutionally allowed to gather in Public Places?
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Some argue that the right to assemble only goes toward petitioning the government. That, however, is not the case based on how our Founding Fathers wrote it. You can read more about that here.
Why have we been so quick to sit in our homes and wait for someone to save us from such a “deadly” virus. The population of our country and the numbers that have proved over time do not show the virus to be any ore deadly than the flu would. Nad yet we sit, not acting, and not fighting being told when and where we can go because of “health concerns and public interests”. What has happened to the people that they have been so scared or blinded by fear to act?
One thing could have led us down this path. It started over 15 years ago in the form of MySpace. Then, slowly transformed into Facebook, and instagram, twitter, Snapchat and more. Why do I point to these as being the culprit? They, in and of themselves, are not bad. However, have you ever been with a group of friends and one of you gets spooked by something then the entire group is running in fear? As I have seen since March 11th, fear is a powerful controller. And who is spreading fear? We are! We see something about Corona/Covid 19 and share it to our stories, or tweets, or feeds. Another person shares it, and soon it goes viral. Just like the virus. Fear is viral.
If you leave your house, you will catch this disease and if you have it, you will die. Everyone has poor health and is at risk. Or, so that is how they made us feel. Don’t let your grandparents get it because then they will die alone. Don’t be the one to kill your friend. Now, a lot of people have been getting it AND recovering, they are saying that the second time you get it is the deadly time.
Thankfully they have produced a vaccine in the shortest amount of time ever in the history of vaccines. Now, with this being release they will begin to ask people to prove they have been vaccinated, just to work or go to a store. Discrimination will be up and if you do not vaccinate you will not be allowed to leave your house. It is coming, and yet we do not fight. We sit back thank them for controlling us and giving us a hardly tested medical injection and thank them for it. We get sick, we have reactions. But, who will be held liable for that?
In the meantime, as those vaccines roll out, our country has been in a flux of shut downs and lock downs. No one is calling it quarantine, because they cannot. The government cannot quarantine you especially if you are not sick.
Under 42 Code of Federal Regulations parts 70 and 71, CDC is authorized to detain, medically examine, and release persons arriving into the and traveling between states who are suspected of carrying these communicable diseases. As part of its federal authority, CDC routinely monitors persons arriving at land border crossings and passengers and crew arriving at U.S. ports of entry for signs or symptoms of communicable diseases.
That does not say that if you are a healthy individual, that they have the right to detain you. It does not state that states and local governments have the power to tell you to stay home. But wait, how did so many states and local governments get people to stay home? They have the power to control businesses. And, with marketing to encourage you to stay home because you will be “safer at home”. What did they do? They issued a mandate (not a law) that stated that businesses, except for restaurants and “essential” businesses, would not be allowed to open. So, why would you leave your house? You have no where to go except “essential” businesses.
Yet, where was the public outcry? There was none because you were distracted and afraid. You were told you were “safer at home” and didn’t want to die. Unfortunately, we will all die one day. Unfortunately, because we have allowed this to carry on… America may never be free again.
One day, it hit me, I may be okay with sitting at home but my children and children’s children will look back at this time and ask me… why didn’t I fight? Why didn’t I do something to stop it? And that is something I cannot live with.
This is just the beginning. The beginning of the freedom we had as Americans taken away. It will get much worse and this new “normal” will indeed be something of a horror when we look back on from the cages of our own making. Led out of fear and chatted into.
What will you do? Sit, “safe at home” or Rise and fight for the freedom that you were granted by those who fought before you?
As for me and my house, we will fight.
