Today’s read comes from former Congressman Allen West, a no-nonsense, straight shooter. Here’s the tease before a link to the entire column:
We have seen parents being arrested for playing with their children in parks. We have seen people getting citations for driving alone in their cars — just taking a drive. The real meaning of “lockdown” has become house arrest — illegally implemented martial law.
The virus of tyranny has resulted in a sickness greater than COVID-19 itself, which has a 99.6% recovery rate. We have watched the American economy be decimated, all because the virus of tyranny made the decision of who and what is essential. As Benjamin Franklin asserted, “those who would give up essential liberty for temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
So think of this America — a virus with a 99.6% recovery rate is not the real danger. The real dangerous virus is the utter tyranny that has made 30 million Americans unemployed.
