In all this craziness of this shut down, there is something that somehow remains fuzzy, something just isn't right, and no one is saying it out loud, we are getting snookered, and we know it, but we can't figure out exactly how. So let me say this straight out. This shut down is flat out illegal, it is point blank against the Constitution, it is outright tyranny, and it is our patriotic duty to revolt against it.
The Constitution was amended with this writ of rights that came straight from France. We have Robes Pierre - of all people - to thank for our Bill of Rights. Who was Robes Pierre? He was the world's first terrorist. Robes Pierre terrorized the nation of France to force it to give up their king and accept the new republic. In so doing, he wrote the people a list of rights they would enjoy under the new republic. A politician's politician, you might say.
Now the very first right of the people living under the republic - and therefore the most important right we have - is the right to free speech; this includes freedom of the press and freedom to assemble for purposes of worship or to protest the government. All of that is your freedom of speech.
When we sing "land of the freeeeeeeeee" ... we are singing about the first Amendment. When we sing, "I'm proud to be an American, where, at least, I know I'm free..." we are singing about the first Amendment prohibiting Congress from making any law that takes away our freedom of speech.
Government can not take away our freedom in this republic. The republic was set up under the strict prohibition of making any law that takes away our freedom; IOW, if some Governor proclaims he/she has outlawed your freedom for any reason, that Governor is no longer a Governor, he/she has zero authority the moment he/she does that, because he/she has gone outside of the republic, where he/she is just another blow hard, all the authority of being a Governor is contained within the Constitution and their abiding within that framework of law. That's why they take an oath of office to defend the Constitution, not defend their political party, not defend the people, but defend the Constitution... all the power of their office is given by the Constitution.
So, this is an illegal lock down and we the people are not under any such law, this is the equivalent of a military officer giving an illegal order in the field, you actually are in trouble if you obey that order, we are not supposed to carry out illegal orders. Now the corner grocery store can legally require me to wear a mask if I want to shop there, that is their prerogative, but the Governor can not order me to stay at home or not go to church or not protest his tyrannical edicts. In Illinois, the county sheriffs are refusing to carry out the Governor's illegal orders, they do that because they understand better than to carry out illegal commands. It is a sad state of affairs that the common people do not have that understanding, but we are starting to figure it out.
The con job is the use of the pandemic as a state of emergency and the strange act of trying to place a quarantine on healthy people. Already something should not feel right about that. But it doesn't matter what the real death rate is or whether hospitals are over whelmed with patients, none of that matters, the government can not tread on the first Amendment for any reason and not for any amount of time. The Amendment prohibits the emergence of a law that takes away our freedom, let alone allowing such a law to emerge, take hold, and take away our freedoms for a specific amount of time. The moment the Governor of Illinois announced his lock down and stay at home order was the moment he stepped outside the Constitution and his oath to defend it and until he returns to that, he is not my Governor, he is just another pretender to power that he doesn't have. We the people should ignore him and we are slowly realizing that.
This is cut and dry tyranny. What is tyranny? That's when your Governor attempts to take away your freedom, that's what tyranny means. This is not tolerable, not for one moment in time, not ever for any reason, it is prohibited under the first Amendment, and it is absolute, it is not okay for this to happen, do not allow these pretenders to tread on your freedom, they have no authority whatsoever to do that.
