(LFC Comments: Thanks to Concord Bob for sending us this article written by an anonymous source. Will you give up your freedoms and liberty for “safety”? Will you continue to accept government handouts as long as you obey the tyrants? Observe what is happening around our country as local tyrants willingly strip you of your first amendments rights. Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
So what is Liberty?
“the state of being free within society from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one’s way of life, behavior, or political views”
Patrick Henry, at S. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia on March 23, 1775 gave his opinion on liberty:
” Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
Liberty vs. Safety
Food for thought from the weirdo who always questions authority. Not saying it’s right. Just here to make you think.
“We are seeing the most draconian measures enforced at all levels of government that we’ve ever seen in our lifetimes, and yet rather than being alarmed by the things going on, so many of you applaud.
People are being arrested for spending too much time outside, and you applaud. Pastors are being arrested for daring to hold church services, and you applaud. A child’s birthday party is raided by police, and you applaud. A young woman is ticketed for going on a leisurely drive alone because it’s deemed “non-essential travel”, and you applaud. A parade of school teachers and administrators who wanted to drive through neighborhoods and wave at children is busted up by cops because they were “non-essential,” and you applaud. A lone paddle-boarder in the ocean on a beach without any other people around is arrested because he’s violating quarantine orders, and you applaud.
People are being denied life saving medical treatments because they’re not a priority right now (not “essential” as deemed by the government) as the entirety of our medical system is focused on one thing, and you applaud.
You’re being told to use hotlines and online forms provided by your local governments to report your neighbors who don’t obey, and you comply. You scold people day after day for not obeying government edicts, and if any of us dare to question what’s happening, you lecture about how we’re a danger to society and and we just don’t care about people dying.
At what point will you start QUESTIONING what’s going on? How far does the government have to push before you’re jolted awake from your slumber? How far are you willing to go with this?
YES. Yes, you would!
That much has become painfully obvious to me. And the whole time, you’d be shaking your finger and yelling at those of us who refused, accusing us of being “a danger to society” and “not caring if people die.”
But they don’t have to load you onto train cars and take you to Virus Protection Facilities, or force you to comply, because you do that voluntarily. They control your mind. They control you through fear. They control you by convincing you that the world is a scary dangerous place, but they’re here to protect you, care for you, and keep you safe, just as long as you OBEY.
They know that as long as you’re locked inside your comfortable home with Netflix, Hulu, Face-book, Twitter, Instagram, and a cell phone, while dangling a $1200 check in front of you like a carrot on a stick, you’ll comply. No force is necessary for the majority of the herd.
YOU ARE IMPRISONED, willingly, and you’re too blind to see it.” –
