Every church in America opened their doors and functioned as they did before Covid? What would Government be able to do?
All businesses began putting people back to work and turned on their open sign? Movie theaters open? Restaurants open? Everything open? What would government be able to do?
Pools and parks and hotels opened the doors and gates and we went places and began enjoying living again? What would government be able to do?
What if we take off the masks? Stopped living in fear. Stopped treating each other suspiciously in the grocery store as if everyone is a leaper? What would government be able to do?
What if we the people took back control of our own lives? Began making our own decisions? Stopped listening to lies and inuendo? Stopped arguing and started uniting? What would government be able to do?
It is WE THE PEOPLE who are currently allowing this narrative to play out. Allowing the corrupt to dictate the narrative for power and control of our minds and lives. It is WE THE PEOPLE who are really making the decisions to remain locked inside our homes and live in fear of the 'what-if' narrative that has been projected by all forms of media who don’t know truth from fiction. What if we united together and just went back to work, back to church, back to living? What would government be able to do? Arrest us all? Perhaps a short lockdown was essential and beneficial. What we are experiencing now is an exercise in control. There was a time when our nation was founded because men decided it was time to escape a tyrannical government. They rose up and said “ENOUGH.” Where are the brave men and women who will say “ENOUGH” now?
Yes, Covid-19 can be serious to some. So are many other things. People die every day from sickness and disease that is transferable by human contact. Yet we have lived our lives, not in fear but caution and wisdom. We know how to care for ourselves and our families. We know that in the grand scheme of things "it is appointed unto man once to die," but we don’t stop living out of fear of dying. We have survived and thrived and mourned when our loved ones passed over. Perhaps it is time we rise up and take back our own lives. Take back our nation. PEACEFULLY merely return to living. I’m not calling to take up arms or march in the streets. I’m just saying overcome their loud clamoring and just go back to life. What would they be able to do? It would take a completely united stand by We the People. If we did, we would prove we are the United States of America. If we don’t, welcome to the new norm of complete and absolute control.
