Patricia Suzanne | “It’s just” that we don’t trust our government
“It’s just to flatten the curve.” “It’s only for two weeks.” “It’s only a few more months.” “It’s just another year.” “It’s just a mask.” “These are just non-essential businesses.” “It’s just bars and gyms and lounges.” “It’s just to avoid overwhelming hospitals.” “It’s just until the number of cases goes down.”
“It’s just a temporary lockdown.” “It’s just to protect you.” “It’s just to keep others from being scared.” “It’s just for large gatherings.”
“It’s just a phone app.” “It’s just to let you know you’ve been exposed.” “It’s just to let others know you’re safe.” “It’s just so you don’t lose your job.” “It’s just for the greater good.”
“It’s just a vaccine.” “It’s just a booster…and then another.” “It’s just for the vulnerable.” “It’s fair for everyone, regardless of their antibodies or immune system.” “It’s just experimental gene therapy.” “It’s just a microchip.” “It’s just ‘the science’.”
“It’s just a vaccination certificate.” “It’s like a credit card.” “It’s just so you can travel.” “It’s just so you can get your driver’s license.” “It’s just so you can open a bank account.” “It’s just so you can vote.” “It’s just because people aren’t smart enough to make their own decisions.” “It’s just a data encoding error.” It’s just a different guideline from the Centers for Disease Control. “It’s just another term.” “They are just dishonest bureaucrats.”
“It’s just so hospitals get paid enough to survive.” “It’s just another forged death certificate.” “He’s just another censored doctor.” “It’s just a huge attack on your constitutional rights.” “It’s just the New World Order.” “It’s time to eliminate these tyrannical dictators!”
We American citizens have lost control. We no longer have a government of the people, by the people and for the people. We now have a government of the elites, by the elites and for the elites. The preferences of the powerful have replaced the preferences of the people.
We see it when celebrities walk around maskless while servers at their Hollywood banquets have to cover their faces. We see it when elected officials hand themselves raises as families across America lose small businesses and farms to excessive bureaucracy, mismanaged water supplies and the steady rise fuel and food prices. We see it when barbed wire and soldiers surround the Capitol, but a quarter of a billion dollars of steel rusts north of our southern border.
The majority of citizens support voter ID and secure state-run elections (consistent with the Constitution), but the current Democratic-controlled Congress wants to put voting procedures under full federal control , prohibit voter identification requirements and weaken the integrity of the electoral process.
The majority of citizens favor secure borders, but the Joe Biden administration unilaterally opened the southern border. They have not only encouraged an invasion of hundreds of thousands of people, threatening the security of our nation, but they are also robbing and busing undocumented aliens all over the country…at YOUR expense.
The majority of citizens favor law and order, yet leftist leaders in many major cities and some states are deliberately undermining law enforcement and criminal justice.
The majority of citizens favor energy independence, which the nation finally achieved under the Donald Trump administration, yet Joe Biden has unilaterally taken steps to shut down domestic fossil fuel production and dramatically increase our dependence on electricity. regard to foreign energy.
The majority of citizens want their elected representatives to be fiscally responsible, and yet they continue to increase spending and waste taxpayers’ money on self-serving increases, selfish or frivolous projects and overlapping bureaucracies and who are not accountable. Have fun looking around bit.ly/GovtWaste2021 or visit Citizens Against Government Waste (www.cagw.org).
The majority of citizens are in favor of a strong army as a deterrent against aggression from hostile countries. And yet, we are seeing a decrease in readiness due to the president’s vaccination mandate for these healthy men and women. In March 2022, over 2,000 soldiers in all branches of service were fired for refusing the vaccine, and those numbers are sure to grow! (Please note that “Comirnaty”, the only FDA-approved COVID vaccine, is not available at any US military installation in America or abroad.)
The majority of parents want their children to be in school, not in front of a computer. At the same time, they want to know what their young people are actually learning in public school. California Department of Public Health reports COVID death rate for ages 17 and under is 0.0% How long did it take for that number to be disclosed and considered in regards to about school policy?
In your opinion, what else should be cited as an example of government indifference or contempt? It is clear that our elected officials at many levels are falling short of expectations, and some are showing a flagrant disregard for the needs of citizens and for the Constitution itself.
As the midterm elections approach, it is more important than ever to remember that elections have consequences!
