What's it Worth?

Today is August 10, 2021.

It’s been 511 days from that fateful day in March 2020 when we were told that the experts needed 15 days to “stop the spread” and “flatten the curve.”

I believe it’s safe to say that, at that point in time, we were all willing to do what we Americans do. We unite around a cause and work together to overcome problems that face us as a nation.

But those 15 days have now turned into 511 days...and counting.

And in those 511 days, there’s been a steep learning curve.

Maybe we haven’t learned much about the virus, but we HAVE learned a lot about the government. And they have learned a lot about us.

What exactly have we learned about the government?

We’ve learned that the government wants to protect us.

How did they protect us, you ask?

  • They “protected” us by closing down small businesses (60% of which will never reopen) while granting “essential status” to Walmart, Home Depot, Lowes, Costco, Target and Amazon. These retail giants were allowed to thrive, while small businesses and Mom & Pop stores died.

  • They essentially seized ownership of our private property through UNCONSTITUTIONAL eviction moratoriums issued by the CDC, who has zero authority to do so. Congress didn’t have the votes to pass a law, so the CDC just arbitrarily made it the rule of the land.

  • They told us when and how we can worship. (They even told us not to sing.)

  • They told us what we can and can’t wear. (Here’s Dr. Fauci giving us every possible answer on wearing masks.)

  • They told us when we can open up again and when we can’t.

  • They told us that we must put an experimental vaccine into our bodies. (Here is the best video I've seen as to why we should question what they've said. As of this writing, it has over 3 MILLION views.)

  • They told us what we can’t put in our bodies (hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, etc.).

  • They (Dr. Fauci) lied to us because they didn’t think we couldn’t handle the truth.

  • They told us what we can and can’t share on social media.

  • They told us what we can read and what we can’t read.

  • They colluded with big-tech to censor and suppress information.

  • They told us that we can’t visit our dying relatives in the hospital, and that they must die alone unless we get special dispensation from our betters.

  • They told us how many people are allowed in a room and how far apart we must stay from each other. Like this example of social distancing rules:

Okay. So those are just some of the things we’ve learned from the government over the last 511 days.

But what has the government learned from us?

They’ve learned one HUGE lesson.

They’ve learned that they can get away with all of it if they can make us believe we’re safer with them in control of our lives. Have you noticed how every single time when we, the people, seem to be coming out of the darkness into the light, the government and the MSM ratchet up the fear level? (“Delta is raging!” “Number of cases double!” “Hospitals overrun!”)

If our freedom and liberty is our currency, what price are we willing to pay the government for their “protection?” What deals are we willing to make for a safe passage through life when there isn’t one?

Maybe a better solution is to lockdown the government for at LEAST 15 days to “slow the spread” of totalitarianism.

“Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for the government but illegal for the citizenry.”

-Thomas Jefferson
