To the editor:
It’s alarming to see what countries are doing under the umbrella of Covid. It’s the new legal standard that imposes behavior control and even jail terms if mandates are violated. Austria, Great Britain, Australia, Germany are just a few of the countries besides the United States exercising that new power. Some countries are even restricting behavior…..requiring residents to stay home, policing residents by police if outdoors to show vaccination cards or be fined. Australia even has “concentration” camps where a few escaped last week and a district manhunt was called to recapture the violators.
People are protesting to no avail. Few politicians world-wide are willing to take a stand for individual rights. In the United States the ruling class controls….and few Republicans consistently challenge what is happening…exception is Rand Paul. There’s a terrible pattern emerging even before covid with our constitutional rights slowly eroding. Republicans have been complicit by supporting such measures as the Patriots Act and their silence at the DOJ’s intrusion in our lives. People are now fed up with mandates, government intrusion and slowly the grass-roots is gaining momentum via parents challenging school boards over masks and workers/parents objecting to compulsory vaccines. Now we need political leadership to continue. This is a real winning issue.
Recent data from Great Britain shows that there is 2x more deaths ages 60 and under from vaccinated adults than unvaccinated. Perhaps that’s why many health workers refuse to take the vaccine. There’s also unconfirmed reports that vaccine producing executives remain unvaccinated and recently the Pfizer CEO stated the other manufacturers are experiencing many death from the shot. Is this something we should be alarmed about. I bet it won’t be reported in the press?
Rand Paul is trying to stir the debate for treatment options rather than developing more ineffective vaccines but the ruling class controls the “best practice” protocols most likely driven by money….not our best interest. The more Americans are made aware of what’s happening the ruling class policy direction will change. Already Fauci’s influence is diminished and Biden’s threats are being challenged in the courts and overruled.
We get what we accept!
