WE the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Rahm Emanual, former mayor of Chicago, once said "NEVER LET A GOOD CRISIS GO TO WASTE" ... and over time this has been the credo of the Democrat party. As shown in the picture below, history is repeating itself in triplicate. WHAT YOU SEE HERE IS EXACTLY WHAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE DOING. If you believe anything else, you're a fool.
The 2016 election, when Trump beat Hillary, has become the be-all, end-all for the Democrats, who - over the years since Rahm's declaration - have moved farther and farther to the left, and sadly have abandoned many moderate members of their party. (I'm sure the Republican party will welcome them!)
I'm certain anyone who even keeps up a little with politics knows that the last three years have been hell for the Democrats, as they tried and tried again to destroy President Donald Trump. And with each failure they moved more to the left and get a little nuttier.
President Trump has carried America on his back, and almost single-handedly given us the best economy in the history of our nation. Unemployment WAS at record levels, incomes were rising, lifting all boats. Businesses were booming everywhere. Internationally America has again taken her place at the top, and we are gaining back the respect we lost under the previous president. And then suddenly were were 'attacked' by a virus with roots in Communist China.
But that's not what I'm writing about. My concerns today are how the left is shredding our Constitution, and once this has been completed, America, as we know it and love it, will be lost forever.
America has been shut down. 45 million people are out of work!!!
The virus - COVID-19 is taking down America with support from the Democrats. They are literally doing the 1-2-3 dance from the poster above.
In COVID-19, 'CO' stands for 'corona,' 'VI' for 'virus,' and 'D' for disease. Formerly, this disease was referred to as “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCoV”. There are many types of human coronaviruses including some that commonly cause mild upper-respiratory tract illnesses.
There is no cure for most viral infections, and treatments can only help with symptoms while you wait for your immune system to fight off the virus. Antibiotics do not work for viral infections.
Now my thoughts...
Today in the Raleigh News & Observer (a totally left-leaning rag that has recently declared bankruptcy) there was an interesting summation of statistics for citizens' health during this 'pandemic'.
After wading through the gibberish, the stats that matter (for a period of time from 1-January 2020 to 16-May 2020) are:
North Carolina has 100 counties.
26 counties have had ZERO deaths from COVID
17 counties have had ONE death, 10 counties have had 2, while 4
counties have had 4
17 other counties have had 398 deaths, 69% of the state deaths
3 counties (Wake, Durham and Orange) account for 101 deaths
Confirmed cases of Covid in N.C. = 18,130
Confirmed deaths to date = 676
*North Carolina has had 379 deaths from the flu in this same time frame.
For the same period of time, North Carolina has had 14,000 CONFIRMED DEATHS FROM SMOKING!!!!
North Carolina citizens are starting to push back against our Democrat governor. Gov. Cooper put forth a rule that no more than 10 people could worship in ANY church, regardless the size of the structure. A number of N.C. sheriffs said they WOULD NOT enforce this governor's order. When the disagreement arrived in court, a federal judge said the governor could NOT limit the number of people in a church regardless of size, when businesses like Walmart were limited by the number of people/square foot.
We owe our thanks to the sheriffs who stood with the churches of North Carolina.
Now it's time for more N.C. citizens to start pushing back on the governor's declarations.
Nowhere is it written that our governor can force closure of private businesses.
Nowhere is it written that our governor can force residents to stay inside their homes.
Nowhere is it written that our governor can force citizens to wear masks and/or gloves when they leave their homes.
It's time for WE THE PEOPLE to take our state (AND OUR COUNTRY) BACK!!!
We are NOT stupid! We are NOT helpless! We do NOT have a death wish! And we do NOT need a governor making inane and insane rules that control our behavior!
