Our federal government wants us to do what we are told even while they themselves thwart our laws. Will they restore confidence in our elections? No. Will they secure our freedom of speech? No. Will they secure our borders? No. Will they protect US citizens and US allies abroad? No.

There comes a time when the people have a duty to stand up against tyranny. If the early Americans had not stood up against Britain to secure our freedoms, we would have become a British colony and not a free nation. If Americans had not put their foot down concerning the laws that were made concerning slavery, we would still have legal slaves. God’s laws supersede all the laws of man. If man’s law says that you can kill a baby, it is still wrong under God’s law. God is the author of freedom and liberty. If government seeks to take away our freedom and liberty, they are wrong. There is a reason why Communism strives to be Godless. Communism is a system that wants to replace God with government.

Our society has become too used to the crutch of government. Our Forefathers had no such crutch. They fought to be free of that crutch, to set up a government by the people, for the people. Hundreds of thousands of people have died to win and secure our freedoms. Right now, some of us are being asked to stand up to tyranny in the form of vaccine mandates. Maybe you are OK with vaccine mandates. Just remember that next time the government may come for your car to protect you from their lie of Climate Change. Maybe they will want to take you from your home to put you in communal living to conserve resources. How far will you let your “government” push before you to are willing to stand? Do you want the liberty of free-range or the “safety” of caged?
