One year ago, America was stronger, was safer, and had a promised future under the leadership of then-President Donald Trump. Today, Americans are more uncertain about their futures and that of their families. The COVID-19 pandemic that Joe Biden criticized Trump over is even worse today than a year ago. For Democrats, there is no incumbent Republican President to attack; instead, now, it is the anti-socialists they so vehemently despise.
This past week, I came across a social media post of a past church congregational member of mine from year's past. In her liberal-laden rant, she publically chastised and ridiculed the non-vaccinated members of our community for her daughter contracting COVID. A teenager and fully vaccinated, her daughter was diagnosed and suffered COVID during the Christmas holiday break with a booster to boot. Her mother was letting it be known that it was the fault of the unvaccinated as to why her daughter was sick and was having to endure a horrible Christmas holiday. You heard me right; in typical liberal fashion, you are either with them and comply with their demands or against them - hell has no fury like a liberal scorned.
Being an unvaccinated person, I hardly shared this young child contracting and even transmitting COVID. I wasn't going to sit idly by and accept responsibility for something I, nor any member of my family, were accountable for. During my exchange with this troubled individual, who just so happens to be employed within the public school system, I was attacked on my stances on not only COVID but gun rights and abortion - both of which were not even remotely associated with the topic at hand - her daughter being sick. This supposed educator stated that the federal government's role was to interfere with public policy during an emergency, which quickly had me retort with a 60-second history lesson.
The role of our federal government, is detailed as minute in nature per the US Constitution and our very precious Bill of Rights, which protects our God-Given Freedoms from being trampled on by the federal government. Like so many plaguing the minds of our nation's youth, this disagreeable educator refuses to believe in the facts and instead firmly considers that thousands of federal tyrants in Washington DC have the legal right to dictate our everyday lives.
Our federal government has no right to dictate how you, me, or someone else chooses to live. Yes, we have established laws, and if broken, there are penalties for such. As explained in the gospels, I do not believe in lawlessness but free will. If you choose suitably, you will live well. If you choose evil, you and those around you are destined for doom. As we prepare to ring in the year 2022, it is this mentality that we must all fully understand. Look at what your federal government has done to you over the last year, or 2 1/2 years, for that matter. You cannot afford to survive; the dollar in your purse or wallet is worthless with each passing day. You cannot afford groceries, eat out, pay for education or healthcare, gasoline in your vehicle, and all the while, the government demands more from every one of us.
Just this week, it was announced that under Biden's Building Back Better mentality, any transaction that exceeds $600, which includes apps like CashApp, Venmo, and Zelle, will automatically report to the IRS. Not only goes Uncle Sam or Daddy Biden, for that matter, want to know how much you make, but also how much you spend or deposit into your bank account. Because the meek, lazy, and dependent in this country refuse to take accountability for themselves, they have opened the door for today's Democrats to take charge.
How many out there listening today chose to be a member of the conservative crusade so desperately needed for not only this year but for a generation to come? America needs you - our country needs your fight, commitment, and zeal to overcome and undo the failed policies of Joe Biden and his liberals. For 2022, I chose freedom - who's with me?
