Are We Still Free?

Joe Biden doesn’t understand the meaning of Independence Day.

By     March 13, 2021

After having lived together through the lost year of 2020-21, many of my long-held beliefs regarding this country have sadly slipped away.

Like many of us, when the lockdowns first began, I believed the directives were basically suggestions from the government that, for our own protection, we needed to close everything down for 15 days. Let’s face it, nearly everyone was scared out of their minds listening to the “experts” saying this would probably kill millions of Americans in 2020, and we complied out of duty and obligation to other citizens and our families. We were only doing what seemed prudent. We were sure we would come out the other side, begin our lives again, and if things were not in a completely normal state, then they’d only be somewhat modified.

But when the state governments began picking and choosing which businesses could reopen and which ones could not—coming up with crazy and specific lists of how businesses may reopen, and demanding everyone wear masks—I realized government “suggestions” actually had teeth and were not suggestions at all.

Apparently, emergency powers supersede all constitutional rights. I did not realize before the pandemic that this was the case. Although some governors, like Kristi Noem of South Dakota, put trust in her citizens after giving them the information they needed, refusing to lock down and cripple her state businesses and citizens, too many other Republican governors followed the herd. Unbeknownst to me, we actually live in large fiefdoms called states in which you may have either a freedom loving governor, a benevolent dictator, or a medieval king doling out crumbs to the masses and telling them to eat cake when they complain.

.

Pre-pandemic, I also believed that the American people would never put up with such an obvious political power ploy as mandating mask-wearing outside in beaches and parks. If you’ve ever seen the poor indoctrinated souls driving in their cars alone wearing a mask (or two!) or bicycling with their masks on, then you know my prior belief was quickly put to bed.

Possibly the strongest belief I had going into last year and the one I was saddest to lose when I realized it simply wasn’t true anymore, was the belief that we were still a free country.

Biden’s teleprompter speech Thursday evening paraded his non-belief in the Constitution. While claiming to be a unity president, not only did he give President Trump and his team zero credit for getting the vaccine fast-tracked and the country supplied with at least 100 million doses, he, Emperor No-Clothes, pronounced that he has decided we might be able to get outside with our close family members for the 4th of July, only if we are good boys and girls.

If the new normal means the Democrats-in-charge will have the power to dictate the nature of small outdoor family gatherings two full months after his goal of getting every willing person vaccinated, then Biden doesn’t understand the meaning of Independence Day.

  1. Either you stand for the US Constitution, and each state that you live in Constitution, or you don’t.

    Remember that it is those documents that are our governments, not the people put into place to carry out those contracts. It is to those documents that we give our Oaths. It is those documents that are to be supported and defended. Never the people who serve within our governments unless they themselves are carrying out, supporting, and defending them.

    1st Amendment is very clear: “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.”

  2. so if the government doesn’t abide by its own laws and constitution, then what? People are being oppressed, voting is being undermined and will only get worse. Patriots and Oath keepers are being arrested and treated like terrorists for exercising their rights, while the real terrorists have allies in the media and government that cover for the burning and destruction of America that has caused more death and mayhem than one day of infiltrated patriots at the Capitol. If not now, then when…

    The media, big tech and even our own FBI are silencing, degrading, hunting down and jailing Oath Keepers and its members and any other Patriotic group. Treat groups like Terrorists, they are going to act like Terrorists. Organizations like Oath Keepers should protect itself and its members with better OPSEC, encrypted emails and communications to allow us to communicate between each other freely and safely without fear of oppression from corporations or our own government alphabet agencies. Destroy or keep safe at a third party member lists so there is nothing to turnover when requested. When your site is hacked (not if), members are protected from Doxxing and even unlawful search warrants from our own government.

    I understand and agree that Oath Keepers is not a terrorist or subversive organization, but playing by the rules of normal people and common sense has gotten you where? Labelled as white supremacist and terrorists by our own government, kicked off of platforms controlled by the real fascists, kicked off of serivices and next will be credit card processors.

    Good will always win over evil, but good needs to start playing the game smarter then evil and not just rollover and take it.

    There are plenty of options for secure email and group communications, the organizations pick one and the members will follow. Each one has its own pros and cons and some are technically easier than others, but you have to start somewhere and stop depending on “old fashioned” emails that can be blocked and the obvious fb, twitter, etc…

    How would you protect your digital assets and your members if the government and corporate powers were misused to attack you and us (your members)? Oh wait, that’s happening now and will only get worse.

  3. We the people have forgotten through our apathy and easy life, who works for whom, and the rules by which we are all obligated to abide by.
    We have forgotten that the ferals, & to a more immediate degree, state govts, work FOR us. Our feral gov has disregarded the rules of the Constitution for well over 100 years. They are in place to provide safeguards & protections that would be impossible for us to provide and procure individually on a global scale. The ferals have violated our Constitution for so many years in so many ways the violations are not even countable anymore.
    They do not care about the Constitution, they do not care about rule of law, they lust for power for powers sake, and from now forward they will do absolutely anything to maintain it.
    You are endowed with God given rights, let none take them from you. You do not need permission, you have those rights by your very humanity.
    I am free, no matter what rules surround me. If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them to obnoxious, I break them. I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do. An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.
