The left has always hated freedom. When we speak of freedom and liberty, we are talking about being free from the enslavement of government. This is the very reason our Constitution enumerates the powers of government and why the 10th Amendment was a part of the Bill of Rights. Enslavement is when a power directs how people live their lives and how they are to think. The left has always advocated that a power, government, be in charge of how people live their lives and how they think. The left has advocated this position because they do not believe the individual is capable of making good, or what the left would call good, decisions. Therefore, government must tell people how they must think through indoctrination and government directives. The left does not believe the individual can determine what type of health insurance they need or if they need health insurance. The left does not believe people are capable of determining which school is best for their children including home schooling, so they must decide.
The sad part of this scenario is that so many people, even people living in America, agree that government is capable of making better decisions for their lives than they are. These people support and vote for the Marxist/Progressive (Democrat) party. In my talk, I will use the phrase that it is not government that will usurp the sovereignty from the people, but that the people will willing abdicate their right to sovereignty; that people will willing once again become servants, serfs, and slaves to government. We are witnessing that today.
The left has told us two whopping lies. The intent of those lies is to do exactly what is happening; people willing surrendering their sovereignty to government and willingly becoming servants, serfs and slaves to the enslaving the government the left desires. The first lie is that we are facing a world ending crisis of climate cooling, warming, change or whatever term they wish to use at the time. They are telling us that day to day change in weather is caused because we wish to be energy independent and wish to control our own destiny as a nation. The other evening Biden said he would end all production of fossil fuels. This is not only economically a disaster, but it is a complete surrender of our individual and national sovereignty. Of course, the left is telling us that 239% of all scientists say unless we do what they want, the world will end in 8 years 5 months and 23 days or some other concocted numbers. This is an absolute lie. We have heard these claims of inevitable catastrophes for well over 50 years now, and not one has come true. That does not matter, they just make bigger and more wild claims and fools believe it.
Today, this same left is claiming that a virus that started in China, but according to them if we associate the virus with China, we are racist, is going to end our world unless we completely destroy our economy and surrender all our liberties while giving government complete control over our lives and businesses, we will suffer some catastrophic result. Here are some facts, but then the left says facts do not matter if they do not support their catastrophic claim that fool’s claim are the reasons we must surrender to their outlandish claims. To date, there are 181,000 confirmed cases worldwide with just over 7,100 deaths. More than 81,000 of those cases were recorded in China, with over 3,200 deaths. The United States now has more than 4,600 cases with 80 or so deaths reported. In Chicago and Baltimore that is considered and acceptable number of murders for a month.
Nevertheless, the left and the media have convinced Americans that they must surrender their 1st Amendment right to assemble and allow city, county, or state bureaucrats determine new rules for assembly. We have willingly surrendered our rights to these city, county, or state bureaucrats to tell local businesses how they can run their business and how we the people can utilize those businesses. We are told this surrender of our rights is to protect us from a virus that, if you even contact it, will cause a low-grade fever and perhaps some discomfort in the vast majority of the few that contact the virus. The exception to this would be elderly people who already are suffering from a serious illness that has greatly diminished their immune system.
I was on the Andrea Kaye show the other evening and made a statement that would have been outlandish as little as two months ago, but today is very probable. In today’s outlandish environment, if a mayors or governors like Garcetii, Breed, de Blasio, Cuomo, or Newsom told the people if they went down to the railroad tracks, there would be trains with cattle cars that would take them to a safe and virus free environment, those cattle cars would be overflowing.
Yes, my friends, it will not be government that will usurp the sovereignty from the people, it will be the people who will willingly abdicate their right to sovereignty, it will be the people who will willingly once again become servants, serfs, and slaves to government.
