Over the past two years, the California Political Elites have attacked our personal and individual freedoms under the disguise of Emergency Mandates. These very mandates destroyed the lives of many Californians. For two years, we were told to hide our faces from one another. For two years, we were told to stay six feet apart. For two years, we were told to stay in our homes. For two years, we were forced to let our parents and grandparents come to the end of their lives without being allowed to visit with them in person. For two years, we were forced to not go to work. For two years, we were forced to watch our family, friends, neighbors and fellow Californians close their businesses. For two years, we were told to get a vaccine authorized under the “Emergency Use” designation to protect us from COVID. And for the last two years… the list goes on and on.
The results of these actions by our leadership in California are undeniable. Over the last two years we were not able to see the smiles, experience that hug, or enjoy a night out with friends and family. Sadly, we were not allowed to sit with our dying family members and share how much they meant to us or have them share some of the wisdom learned along this journey called life. Some struggled to pay the bills and keep food on the table for their family, let alone have enough left over to lend a helping hand. Our entrepreneurial spirit was temporarily squashed as lifelong businesses closed. Some were coerced into getting the vaccine in order to keep their job.
These issues affect every Californian and American alike. The current California leadership is aggressively working to take away our freedom to make our own choices. Government should never have the authority to tell us how to live our lives, how we are to raise our children, if and when we can go to work, or if and when we can open a business, or set the rules for us to operate those very businesses. Never should Government have authority over how we spend time with our loved ones or take away the joy of our children by canceling sports, making them hide their faces, or canceling school years.
It 's time to stand and be counted. It’s time to stand and fight for our freedoms. Our children are counting on us to fight for them, for their choices, for their rights, and for our great state of California. Make no mistake, if we don’t fight now, then when? If not us, then who? Now is the time.
It’s time to stand…
