Earlier this week, conservatives across the country stepped up in protesting the government shut downs. Michigan, Minnesota, Virginia and North Carolina all saw their share of protests. Additional protests are planned in the coming weeks as Americans are demanding that their economy open back up.
Some main stream media outlets would like you to think that this is an indication of partisan divide. There certainly is a divide on display in the events. It’s a divide between those who love freedom and those who are perfectly fine with socialism. After just a few short weeks of staying at home, conservatives are finally waking up to the idea that this trial run of socialism is bad for everyone.
I’m not saying that conservatives thought socialism was acceptable in the first place. However, across the country people willingly accepted the shut downs and closures. Even as these closures are considered unconstitutional. I wrote about that during the week over at The Liberty Loft website. Even the NIH admits that the closures are not constitutional. While the left argues for the shut downs to continue, these unconstitutional closures must stop.
The Democrats are continuing to claim their successes as part of the shut downs. As Americans are unable to find basic necessities at the stores, AOC made her rounds on the TV circuit. She claimed in an interview with Joy Behar that everyone wants socialism now. I completely disagree. American’s do not want socialism. They didn’t fight it initially, but now they are waking up.
American’s do not like the sample of socialism they have received. They have grown tired of being unable to freely go about and do the things they would like to do. The restrictions that are placed by big government across the country are not acceptable. All were placed in the name of preventing the spread of the coronavirus, but even that may be a lie.
Initial results are showing that the coronavirus is far more widespread than what we know. The left would blame this on testing, but the truth is the virus was here long before our first test was administered. China made a concerted effort to hide the virus, most likely in coordination with the WHO. Fox News acknowledged there is a full investigation happening into this.
Antibody testing will tell us a lot about this virus. While many will continue to discount it, I believe that the testing will show the virus has reached far more people than we thought. If China has traced their patient zero back to November of last year (amid their cover up mind you), do we really think this virus just arrived here in early March? Wuhan is a major city in China with millions of travelers. This virus was here long before March.
The continuation of these unconstitutional shut downs must stop. Conservatives realize this. The economic issues that are present are completely because of these shut downs. Now that we have more knowledge and information, it’s time to put America back to work. It’s time to reopen America now!
