Three Bill Proposals That Present a Threat To American Rights
The word “freedom: is synonymous with the word “America.” Lately, however, Americans have seen and felt those freedoms come under attack; Not from an overt power grab from another country (Although startling evidence of covert attacks has been emerging) but from within.
Elected officials from Assemblymen to the media-declared President – Elect are proposing or supporting proposals that either restrict or remove the civil liberties and personal freedoms this country is built upon– often while flouting the very rules they insist their Subjects follow.
Hypocrisy is running amuck in politicians who jet off on private planes or indulging at fancy restaurants or getting private hair cuts while telling their citizens to stay home. Anger is mounting as hard-working Americans are arrested for opening their business while criminals are lauded for destroying those businesses. Places like Los Angeles and Oregon are stunning Americans by giving criminal behaviors like prostitution, possessing drugs, and resisting arrest a pass while demanding the police arrest people who dare defy tyrannical restrictions like inviting family members to their homes.
American has followed the rabbit right through the looking glass, but instead of a Wonderland, Americans have found themselves in a labyrinth of insanity. Now, while the country is distracted with a contested presidential election, collapsing businesses, fear of death, and fear of each other, some politicians are seizing upon the confusion and chaos to introduce bills that would either bribe people into vaccine compliance or outright eliminate parental and personal rights.
The first proposed bill is more of a bribe than a law:
Former Democratic congressman and presidential candidate John Delaney is suggesting giving Americans willing to take the vaccine a $1,500 stimulus check. In a recent CNBC interview, Delaney offered the following justification for this bill many see as a bribe: “The faster we get 75 percent of this country vaccinated, the faster we end Covid and the sooner everything returns to normal.”
Next, New York Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal, representing parts of Manhattan’s West Side, skipped straight over the urging of people like Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot to “educate people into compliance” in getting the COVID-19 vaccine and went straight to a proposal to make it mandatory in New York. Her bill has a kick-in clause regarding an unspecified determination by public officials that “sufficient”immunity is not developed.
Finally, in what Tucker Carlson described as “the most sinister power grab” to date, Lawmakers in Washington State are advancing legislation removing parental control over serious medical care for children as young as 13 years old. This law would establish ‘School-based health centers where minors can receive medical treatment without parental consent. This would mean that a child can go to a medical clinic at their school and receive medical treatment for things like STDs, and gender dysphoria. Children could even receive abortions in some cases – all without notifying their parents or guardians, other than to present them with a blank bill, showing the fee their insurance paid and demanding any unpaid fees for unspecified services rendered.
None of the Bills has become law – yet. They may never become laws at all.
But they might, and each one represents this new version of America where freedom has become a distant memory. Some people are beginning to question if we’ve ever been free at all, or of that freedom has been nothing more than an illusion.
All American eyes should be on each one of these Bills. If it is not happening in your state, do not think it does not impact you. Eventually it will reach your life. Maybe at first it will be someone you love who falls under the shadow of one of the Bills. Maybe it will be your niece or nephew or your best friend’s daughter who go to school as one gender and returns believing they are another. Or maybe it will be you who learns after the fact that your 13 year-old daughter had an abortion and there is nothing you can do about it.
Maybe it will never directly impact you at all, but whatever threatens the rights of Americans in one state, threatens us all.
