Civil disobedience can stop another COVID shutdown
With bureaucrats constantly shifting the COVID-19 goalposts, civil disobedience may be a compelling, final option.
It’s been 511 days since President Donald Trump first implored people to “slow the spread” of COVID-19. In early 2020, the United States faced its first surge in cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. Very little was known of this novel coronavirus. So, working remotely, attending Zoom school, and staying home seemed like a reasonable sacrifice to keep our hospital systems afloat.
A significant portion of the public is opposed to the possibility of new restrictions. A recent Gallup poll found only 57% of K-12 parents support requiring masks for students in schools, and 47% favor requiring high school students to get vaccinated. And though a Morning Consult poll found 76% of Democrats and 46% of independents supported vaccine mandates, 39% of independents and 49% of Republicans were opposed.
At this point, there is little reason why pandemic-era restrictions ought to be reimposed. With effective therapeutics and vaccines, our country is in a much better position in the fight against COVID-19 than last March. There is little reason to impose further mandates, restrictions, or shutdowns. If anything, these measures should be met with peaceful resistance.
“Do I sound fed up to you? That’s because I am,” Paul emphasized in his speech. And a good portion of America is frustrated, too.

I want lockdowns to return. Not for Covid but to get people that have no business behind the wheel of a car off the roads. I’m selfish like that. But pretty sure vehicle deaths and crashes went down significantly during the first part of the lockdowns until people started roaming around again due to cabin fever.
Don’t even need a vax, just need to have forced driving schools with stricter pass/fail requirements. Getting people on the Smith System would be a huge improvement.

The only thing that is been spreading dangerously right now, is how the government is working on taking away any rights we have has humans including the ones that are by laws.
And do not think that because you got the jab you are exempt from losing your freedoms.
This is for all no just the few.
