Friends, 2020 has been a year of turmoil, loneliness and depression, and employment uncertainty. Unelected bureaucrats, like Andrea Palm in Madison and Coronavirus czar Anthony Fauci, or elected hypocrites, like Governor Newsom and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, going out while telling us to self-quarantine. Our constitutional rights were being violated – and our nation bankrupted – by both Democrats and Republicans long before the lockdown “orders” and the trillion-dollar stimulus packages. From Americans’ properties being stolen by asset-forfeiture laws, to the Supreme Court illegally making laws, to a grocery list of unconstitutional agencies in Washington funded by both major parties, the Coronavirus has only accelerated the already ongoing assault on our inalienable rights.
Leftists tell us we must “follow the science”, wear masks, follow lockdown orders, and get vaccinated. But they see no problem with protestors defying those same orders, as long as the protests (riots) are for the “right” cause. Elite leftists cheer BLM protestors marching down the streets of our cities shoulder to shoulder, many without masks. But when you or I go out protesting the lockdowns destroying our livelihoods, the left says that’s immoral and selfish, and that we should “be ashamed of ourselves.”
Don’t kid yourself that Leftists will permit America to get back to normal even after the vaccines are distributed. The statists and those seeking global governance and control over every facet of our lives have admitted as much. In a recent interview with the Leftists PR team known as CNN, Fauci said to Jake Tapper, “Obviously, with a 90-plus percent effective vaccine, you could feel much more confident about not getting the virus. But I would recommend to people not to abandon all public health measures just because you have been vaccinated. Because even though, for the general population, it might be 90% to 95% effective, you don’t necessarily know, for you, how effective it is. Even at those success rates, about 5% to 10% of people immunized may still get the virus.” So, we’re shooting for perfection here? So, if there’s even a small percentage of illness, we must all still conform?
Dr David Ho said, “Therefore, for the foreseeable future, we will need to continue our mitigation measures, including wearing masks.” Ho added that precautionary measures will likely last “for much of 2021.” Don’t worry, by that time the Leftists will find another reason why we need to continue mask wearing and avoiding churches, restaurants, and any Christian or conservative protests, because they will say despite the vaccines, “We are not out of the Corona woods yet. Be patient, America. Keep those masks on.” The thing is, this virus gave Leftists a taste of new powers they never had before…and they like it.
No doubt many of you know someone who has contracted COVID-19. I certainly do. And yes, it has taken lives. For anyone who is sick, the Constitution Party members and supporters wish them a speedy and full recovery. There are three things I will say:
One, on the Centers for Disease Control web site (https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/nvss/vsrr/covid_weekly/index.htm) look at Chart Table 2. There is a column in # that lists “Deaths involving pneumonia, with or without, COVID-19”. We also know there are people who have died from but if they had the virus in their systems, leftist-leaning health officials listed COVID-19 as the cause of death (www.webmd.com/lung/news/20200901/covid-19-primary-not-only-cause-94-percent-of-deaths).
Two, the Leftist solution to preventing the spread of a virus is not to recommend those in the highest risk categories (pre-existing conditions, the elderly) stay home but for everyone to stay home? They even demand children in the lowest-risk category stay home.
Three, according to Leftists, we the common folk are apparently not smart enough to decide for ourselves whether we feel it’s safe or not to go somewhere. They act like without government, we won’t ever think to ourselves, “Maybe I’ll stay away from my favorite restaurant for a while. That might be best.” Or, “I miss my siblings, but I’ll call them or use social media for now instead of our weekly get-togethers.” Nope, Leftists have to mandate you quarantine. And they will decide for you what is essential and what isn’t (apparently big-box stores and franchise restaurants are essential, but mom and pop businesses aren’t). Yes, it is true that some people have poor judgment and make poor choices. That’s true of many of our elected officials and “experts” as well, but that doesn’t stop them from demanding we obey them no matter what.
In the coming years, we need to elect patriots who will make better decisions than 1) quarantining everyone so they can’t work or run their businesses, 2) throwing around money like candy at a parade, and 3) offering rewards to encourage citizens to turn in neighbors who defy the local oligarchs (https://pjmedia.com/news-and-politics/rick-moran/2020/04/04/la-mayor-enlists-citizen-snitches-to-tattle-on-neighbors-who-violate-stay-at-home-orders-n384599). Sure, if we were a police state like the one Mayor Garcetti of LA apparently prefers, enforcing mandates and curbing the spread of an illness would be easier, but we are a constitutional republic! We need Constitutionalists like those in the Constitution Party and others who will govern constitutionally, give the people all the information on a given problem, then trust them to make sound choices for themselves and their families. Yes, a republic form of government is the hard way, but when in doubt, our party errs of the side of trust in God, liberty, rule of law, individual responsibility, and inalienable rights.
I’ll leave you with the warning of author C.S. Lewis, “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
