Come And Take It

Real Talk

Whether it’s Gavin Newsom of California, Lori Lightfoot in Chicago, or Michigan’s Gretchen Whitmer, the authoritarianism shines through like someone’s high beams in oncoming traffic. These three have taken the well of government control and filled it beyond capacity, using fear and intimidation as justification for their actions. They want you afraid, subjugated, and complacent.

But there was a time…

Our government, even at the state and local level, has become drunk on its own power. A decade ago, I would’ve said that it has forgotten that it serves at the will of the People. I no longer believe that. I have come to the realization that our government hasn’t forgotten anything, but has forsaken everything. With their unquenchable thirst for more and more power, a vast number of your elected officials would happily ignore your plight simply to obtain even a single gram of additional power.

But there was a time…

Now they have you right where they have always wanted you. The “mask mandates” have reduced your ability to see the humanity in your neighbor. The “social distancing” they call for has isolated you from normal human contact. The “shutdowns” have engineered you to fear your community. The last item which they need to strip away from you is your sense of family, and now they are ordering you to not have family gatherings for the holidays. Do you see the way this works?

Now is the time…

I will not live in fear of my government. If anything, my government should live in fear of me, and the millions of patriots just like me, for its tyrannical power grabs have only emboldened me, strengthened me, and inspired me.

T.S. Eliot once wrote, “This is the way the world ends, not with a bang, but a whimper.”

As long as as I have breath in my lungs, there will be no whimpering. As long as the blood of freedom and liberty continues to flow through the veins of patriotic men and women, there will be no whimpering. As for those of you in our government who would wish to silence us, we all say in unison:

Come and take it.
