Restore our Freedoms!

I want to remind Americans and our political servants (the President, governors, mayors and judges) how America works, because clearly, we have forgotten.

In America, we recognize that…

We the People are sovereign. Our political leaders are our servants, our employees, not our superiors. Their job is to carry out their constitutionally mandated responsibility to protect our rights.

Our rights are not granted to us by our government. Rather, our rights are inborn and unalienable: they come from God. The Constitution and Bill of Rights codifies some, but not all of these God-Given Rights.

The US Constitution protects our freedoms by restricting the power of government, because our Founding Father’s knew that people in power ALWAYS want more power. The Bill of Rights is a reminder that officials have no legitimate power to restrict our freedoms.

The Bill of Rights does not contain an exception for emergency situations, except possibly a declaration of martial law by Congress. In other words, just because there is a crisis, our government can’t suspend our rights. Throughout time, crises have been the time-honored way by which people lost their liberties at the hands of their own government.

The First Amendment forbids government, whether national, state, or local, from making any law that prohibits our freedom to practice our religion as we as individuals see fit. The government does not have the authority to shut down our churches or limit the size of congregations. We each have the freedom to decide whether to go to church or not.

Our government does not have the authority to mandate a mass house arrest without due process (locking healthy people in their homes is not quarantine, but rather it is house arrest and it is illegal).

Our government does not have the authority to tell us where to shop or what to buy. Adults can choose for themselves what businesses to patronize, and what level of risk they want to take regarding COVID-19, while high risk individuals can hide themselves away if they want to.

Our government does not have the authority to shut down and thereby destroy small businesses or to determine which businesses are essential or not. Free markets need to be restored so entrepreneurs can create market-driven solutions the help their fellow man without worrying whether the government will arbitrarily shut them down and destroy their livelihood.

Our government does not have the authority to mandate vaccines or any other medical action, nor can it set up restrictions for people who don’t get vaccinated.

Our government does not have the authority to track our movements and use this data against us without our authorization.

Our leaders should not be encouraging Americans to report on other citizens and turn neighbor against neighbor.

We welcome moral leadership from our political servants if it is done in a way that respects our individual freedoms and the Constitution. Our inborn and unalienable, God-given freedoms are non-negotiable and we will not accept a “new normal” that in any way restricts them.

We were founded to be a representative republic of self-reliant and responsible free people.  Our success as a nation and as individuals is not due to government regulation, subsidies, and control, but rather to a limited government that stays out of our daily affairs so that we are free to exercise our individual freedoms, choices, and creativity.

  1. It seems there has been a shift in this country from discussing rights, to responsibilities. Where there are rights, responsibilities are also present, but one can have responsibilities without rights.

    Discussing rights brings all people to the table. Vs. Having one group talking individual responsibility, and another talking collective responsibility, and both ignoring (doing away with) rights.

    1. Yes, I agree. Our main responsibility is to protect our rights, because free people are the best at taking care of themselves and providing value to the whole.

  2. If you or anyone will read the book called The Great Controversy by Ellen G. White – it tells alot of what is happening and will be happening in this world’s future.

  3. Your article is terrific and ditto I agree 100%! But there are entities that are engineering this chaos that is going on. To find out about these entities there are video series by Walter Veith that super explains alot about the Hegelian Dialectic and other agendas involved with this chaos. Walter Veith has done series called Total Onslaught, Rekindling the Reformation, Repairing the Breach. There are other series – but that is a start. There are two books called The Great Controversy and Last Day Events by Ellen G. White that really explains what is going on and what will be happening in our future. There are the truths of God – and for every truth of God, Satan has one or more counterfeits. The mark of the beast is not a microchip. The beast is a religious-political entity. The second beast will mirror the first beast. God has a sign in His word (the Bible) that is between Him and His people – and to counter that, and to counterfeit that, Satan and the beast have a “mark”. And the last test of mankind will be regarding the ten commandments – all 10 of the KIng James Version of the Bible – especially the fourth commandment regarding the Sabbath (Friday sunset to Saturday sunset. And either the people will follow God or they will follow Satan – and it is not going to be pretty – it will get worse. If people want to call keeping the 10 commandments legalism then they will have to call Jesus Christ a legalist – because He kept all of them and He said if you love me the keep (obey) the commandments. I know that this will be deleted but whoever does read this before the deletion – God will know who you re – and it is one you.

    1. I will second what Cressie wrote about the books Great Controversy and Last Day Events by Ellen G. White, very great books and the series by Walter Veith are excellent and very thought provoking. Thank you Glenn Meder for what you are doing to wake people up. Yes we are a republic. Yes the elected officials are supposed to be public servants, not dictators. God has HIS hand in how our United States of American was formed.

  4. I am 84 and have always been a seeker of wisdom. These months of confinement have proven to be a wonderful time to gain knowledge of things I have wondered about for many years. I have taken advantage of the down time to enrich my mind by taking courses from Hillsdale College on subjects such as our political system, the Bible, the U.S. Constitution, our America Heritage, Aristotle, and many other subjects. Dr. Jordan Peterson lectures have also been wonderful. I hear so many folks complain about the boredom of their confinement. Take advantage of the time on your hands to improve your mind. There is more than just video games available to you. The return on your invested time will be life changing.

  5. That is AMAZING Cressie!

    Because I, TOO, found the book The Great Controversy, and I was BLOWN away with what I’m reading! 😱

    EVERYTHING that the book talks about is happening, NOT ONLY in America, but around the world.

    I would LOVE to make it available, FREE OF CHARGE to anyone desiring it.

    I bought a whole BOX to give away!
