“To be free is better than to be unfree always. Any politician who suggests the opposite should be treated as suspect.” — Margaret Thatcher

“If there is ever a fascist takeover in America, it will come not in the form of storm troopers kicking down doors but with lawyers and social workers saying. ‘I’m from the government and I’m here to help.’” — Jonah Goldberg

Over the last few months, we’ve seen criminals released from jail while law-abiding citizens have been arrested for trying to work for a living, churches have been shut down by government order, and people have been arrested for protesting against the government. It sounds more like China than the “Land of the Free and Home of the Brave.”

 

Who would have ever thought we’d have seen these kinds of abuses of power in the United States? The only thing more shocking than the behavior of our government is the cops that made it clear they’d obey any order given to them by government officials, no matter how anti-American it was, and the citizens that cheered all of this on. Despite the fact that nations like Sweden, along with seven states here in the US never shut down, many power-hungry government officials across the country have pretended as if they had no choice other than to destroy small businesses, impoverish half their citizens, and openly harass anyone who simply had a higher level of risk tolerance than they do. This list could have easily been dozens (or perhaps hundreds) of examples long, but these seven give you a taste of how badly many local governments have been behaving over the last few months.
