U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- As I watch some people work themselves into indignant, self-righteous outrage over the fact that others are storming their statehouses to demand freedom, I can’t help but smile. This is the way it should be. This is the way it was intended. The problem is, those who choose to hand their freedom over to the government for perceived safety will continue to label these Americans as terrorists.
Government Groupies look down their noses at Patriots because they recognize them as people who are willing to stand up for their rights while they know, they, themselves are not.
What’s the difference between the left and the right? The answer comes down to a very simple concept. Those on the left are willing to give up their freedom for safety. Those on the right are willing to give up their safety for freedom. Our brothers and sisters that we see on the steps of our capitol buildings are doing exactly what they should be doing. Our Founding Fathers knew there would come a day when the government would need to be reminded who they work for. Will it take the corona-crisis to remind people how much freedom they’ve given up? For some, maybe.
When we talk to people on the left about this, they tell us that we must do whatever we can to be safe. They can look you straight in the eye without any acknowledgment of the freedom lost as the state representatives they voted for literally put them on home detention. They accept this without question. They are able to do this because, through a collective media effort, they are given a view of the world through a lens of fear and hatred. Fear for their own lives and hatred for those who won’t conform to the herd mentality they have embraced. You will find the same is true with the way guns are portrayed in America. Coincidence?
So why is it that people on the right can no longer tolerate the corona shut down? Why is it that people on the right are storming their statehouses to demand an end to the corona fear campaign? The answer is simple, they recognize when their rights are being violated and their freedom through independent entrepreneurship and free-market capitalism is being destroyed. Real Americans understand the importance of freedom and independence. They get why our founding fathers demanded it.
Logical thinking people understand that virus precautions can be exercised without giving up civil rights.
Others would much rather put the government in control of their lives because a structured, controlled and regulated society makes them feel safe. I’m not even blaming them for it because to them, this makes sense. But I am pointing out the fact that their delusion of a government-controlled Utopian society will only lead to the destruction of America and complete loss of the freedom our Founders fought for.
Those Americans who are waking up to the corona-freedom-grab have become a fierce opposition to the political-left and its push for government control. This is why left-wing media is desperately pushing a “safety over freedom” narrative.
Fortunately, patriotism Has been bred into the majority of Americans. Regardless of the narrative, regardless of the fear campaign, and regardless of how much the left kicks and screams. Real Americans are fighting for the same exact thing our Founders fought for.
Our Founding Fathers are cheering on those Americans demanding freedom, while the media condemns them and spoon-feeds the fearful another dose of debilitating, self-righteousness.
