Quoth Senile Gropey Joe: “…Biden’s statement noted that the ‘dire jobs report’ offered only a snapshot of the situation in November, ‘before the surge in COVID cases and deaths in December as we head into a dark winter.‘ He was right about that, although as is his clueless wont he hasn’t the vaguest notion why.
Many people talk of a foreboding sense. A sense that something is very close to erupting on the surface. I believe, and have said for months, the eruption will come as a result of overreach by control authority in reference to COVID dictates. We are very close.
The power of government comes from the people; or as we say in the U.S. “from the consent of the governed.” When the people lead, the politicians are forced to follow.
Without implied consent the municipal or state government has no power. None.
As a result, the nonsense ends when the majority of We The People no longer give our consent.
How do We The People retract our consent? We simply refuse to comply.
When the majority of people simply refuse to comply with unilateral dictates, and laugh in the faces of those who attempt to enforce them, the government no longer has power.
If one person refuses to comply, the government or control authority can, and likely will, intervene. However, if tens of thousands rebuke these unconstitutional decrees, there isn’t a damn thing govt can do to stop it… and they know it. A non-compliant snowball becomes an unstoppable freedom avalanche.
If one restaurant and/or bar opens, the state can target the owner. But if every bar and restaurant in town opens; and if everyone ignores and dispatches the silly dictates of the local, regional or state officials; there isn’t a damned thing they can do about it.
The power of the local, regional or state authority comes from the expressed consent of the people. As soon as the majority of people in that municipality deny that consent, those officials and state authoritarians lose all of their power.
Yes, it really is that simple.
Well, maybe. It’s far more likely that, rather than sit back and watch their stolen power evaporate, our illegitimate authorities will double down on harrassing, fining, and locking up as many as they possibly can. The silver lining, though, is that—should We The People go on “bitterly clinging” to our righteous defiance, even double down ourselves—THAT will be what signals the onset of the Power’s true death throes, and this nightmare regime will begin to totter and fall at last.
I’ve debated with I don’t even know how many folks, both online and in meatspace, who maintained over these last months that if we could all just make it to Election Day, then all this lockdown/urban rioting/Leftard lunacy crap would finally be over and done with. ‘Fraid not, folks. Election Day was merely the beginning. The struggle is NOW; it is ongoing, and it will be neither quickly nor easily won. As Bill Murray so memorably said, in one of the greatest movies ever:
Freedom is never really secure, being always under attack from its enemies on one front or another. The fight for it is eternal…which is why Team Liberty’s vigilance must be too.
