Before anyone argues, there is no war, I beg to differ and state that the war is being waged on numerous fronts and it is intensifying. The COVID-19 pandemic and the Anarchy and Riots have pulled back the covers and exposed those in power, at all levels, as would-be dictators and exposed their dangerous and even treasonous actions. The taste of power that has been infused into them in the edicts and demands is telling of the true condition of America.
I am flabbergasted at the ease with which the tiny totalitarians at various levels have exercised ‘total control’ over the populace. Those charged with governmental oversight have exposed their true desire and character. The many shapes and forms of the lockdowns have revealed a Napoleonic complex and a Barney Fife-ishness that would be laughable were it not so incredibly serious and destructive. Fear is an incredibly powerful weapon and a weapon it is proving to be.
Long before the pandemic and massive restrictions were placed on America and Americans there was a war being waged against many of our freedoms and liberties. Many in power are seizing upon the opportunity to infringe upon our constitutional and inalienable rights. If Americans are allowed to exercise their freedoms, liberties, and rights, the power-hunger political elitists have no power. That is abhorrent to them and demands proscription.
The medical experts, namely Drs Fauci and Birx may be genuinely interested in the health of Americans but their models have been wrong more than right. Dr. Fauci, who has a long-standing relationship with Bill Gates seems hellbent on forcing America to take a yet to be produced vaccine. He is also adamant about continuing the lock-down and has even proposed an ID card to qualify us any reprieve from his desired virtual house arrest. If we are good little boys and girls, they indicate they are willing to toss us a crumb of our freedoms. That is troubling on many levels.
I argue that the COVID-19 ‘mitigation’ actions have become if they have not always been, a ‘political weapon’ wielded by the Democrats in their effort to defeat Donald Trump. I have seen documented reports that there has been an escalation in the suicide rates during and directly related to the mandates. I have seen reports from treatment centers that there is an increase in various opioid addictions as well as alcoholism and food bingeing. I have seen reports from various sectors, not widely reported, that the unrest and desperation in people have produced an increase in burglaries and other crimes. In times of desperation and fear, people do things they would not otherwise do.
Most of us are social creatures and are not emotionally or psychologically equipped for long-term isolation from other humans. We have the mini tyrants striving to create a condition where neighbors are squealing on neighbors for perceived violations of the mandates. We are witnessing some of the earmarks of the rise of despotism and created a virtual ‘Twilight Zone.’ I wonder if the fruit of the over aggressive-quarantines can be excluded from the rioting, looting, and mayhem. No, it is not the cause, but may be playing a role in misdirected aggression and anger.
If anyone thinks that those in power, who have stripped us of many of our freedoms, rights, and power will restore that when the fear subsides, you are not being realistic. Power once seized is seldom restored. Liberty lost is never regained short of a revolution to reclaim. Today, the Leftists want to completely dismantle America and render our cities without law enforcement. Well, they want their own brand of law enforcement to be imposed and the obvious result of that will not bode well for legal and law-abiding citizens who do not toe their line.
John Adams, in a letter to Abigail Adams, July 7, 1775, made an arresting statement. He wrote of the rebuilding of cities and restoration of opportunity to those reduced to poverty and loss. He then said: “…a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty once lost is lost forever. When the People surrender their share in the Legislature, and their Right of defending the Limitations upon the Government, and of resisting every Encroachment upon them, they can never regain it.” That is astounding and germane today.
The War in America is the War for Freedom! You may or may not like Donald Trump, the current president that is your choice. However, if you consider the expressed ideological desires and agenda of every Democratic hopeful to replace him, you must see our danger. If we allow them to ascend to the rule of governance, we will have opened the door for the continued infringement of our liberties and freedoms.
Our Freedom of Speech has been openly challenged for several years and during this time all our 1st Amendment Rights are in the cross-hairs of politicians. They desire for us to consider them the grantors of liberties and freedoms rather than believing we have certain inalienable rights. We have witnessed county judges, mayors, governors, and politicians in Washington demand ‘unlimited power’ and, to a degree, they have been granted their desires. I warn once they taste and experience ‘unbridled and unlimited’ power they will not willingly relinquish it.
If you have been troubled with what many believe to be pandemic overreaction, and the results in our cities due to the riots, then you dare not elect the Democrats. What would make anyone think that once they have tasted that power, they will give it up? They won’t! What would make anyone think that after decades of governance in some of our large cities they would suddenly become efficient in governance? They won’t! If you want to maintain your Freedom of Speech and are appalled at being labeled a racist, bigot, homophobe, or some equally derogatory name because you expressed an opinion, you dare not elect the Democrats.
If you want to maintain your God-given right of self-defense embodied in the 2nd Amendment, you dare not vote for the Democrats. If you want to maintain personal property rights, you dare not vote for the Democrats. If you believe that life, all life is valuable, you dare not vote for the Democrats. If you want to have become so paranoid and fearful that you are willing to hide in your home for perpetuity allowing the government to make all decisions for you, then vote for the Democrats.
Barack Obama promised or threatened to ‘fundamentally transform’ America and was unable to fully achieve his objective. Following the advice to ‘never let a good crisis go to waste,’ the Left has seized upon this pandemic and now the riots, with the help of the media and instilled fear so strong millions are terrified. It appears to me that the Democrats and the media are effectively saying, “Screw you America. Stay in your homes, hide from the world, and when it is safe, we will tell you when you can come out and if you are sheepishly obedient, we will toss you a bone occasionally. If you join us in defeating the evil Trump, we might let you come out for a few hours each week and live a semblance of a normal life.” I say NO THANK YOU!
In the words of Benjamin Franklin, I suggest that we adopt the mentality, “Rebellion to tyrants is obedience to God.” I believe that every American should commit to protecting and defending the Constitution. In that, we should respect the rights, beliefs, and opinions of others. We should become informed and stay abreast of the issues. We should perform our civic duty when called upon and participate in the ‘democratic process.’ By that I mean, vote, and work to ensure that all elections are legitimate and free of fraud and corruption. Finally, I believe every American has a duty to defend this country if the need arises and protect it against all enemies both foreign and domestic.
America, we are in a War and that War is a War for Freedom! I am voting to keep America Free as well as Safe. I hope you will join me in praying for America, the president, our leaders, and our people.
God bless you and God bless America!
