Shocking Amount Of Americans Want Freedoms Tossed Out And Submission To The State Forced
As we have seen throughout human history, those that would like to impose tyranny upon a nation need at least a certain percentage of the population to go along with their plans. It doesn’t even have to be a majority. All that is required is enough “true believers” to enforce the authoritarian dictates of the elite. Many had assumed that the United States would always be immune from such a scenario because our Constitution guarantees certain liberties and freedoms. Unfortunately, things have dramatically changed in recent years. Today, a surprisingly large percentage of the U.S. population openly embraces authoritarianism, which should deeply alarm us.
If you think that I am exaggerating, let’s look at some of the recent Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports national survey results. I will pull certain lines from their report and put them in bold, and then I will follow with my thoughts.
“48% of voters favor President Joe Biden’s plan to impose a COVID-19 vaccine mandate on the employees of large companies and government agencies”
All of the other results we will look at are specifically for Democratic voters, but this figure is for U.S. voters as a whole.
It should deeply grieve all of us to see that nearly half the country supports Joe Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandates.
Have we fallen this far as a nation?
Thankfully the Supreme Court just struck down Biden’s national OSHA mandate, but more mandates are inevitably coming on the state level.
“Fifty-nine percent (59%) of Democratic voters would favor a government policy requiring that citizens remain confined to their homes at all times, except for emergencies, if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine”
Are you kidding me?
A solid majority of Democrats would like to lock the unvaccinated in their own homes except for “emergencies.”
And since Dr. Fauci just admitted that COVID would be with us forever, such a measure would theoretically be implemented on an indefinite basis.
That is extremely chilling.
“Nearly half (48%) of Democratic voters think federal and state governments should be able to fine or imprison individuals who publicly question the efficacy of the existing COVID-19 vaccines on social media, television, radio, or in online or digital publications”
This is another sign that free speech is almost completely dead in our country.
If we can’t even ask questions, what kind of society will we have?
The U.S. Constitution is supposed to forbid such government restrictions on speech, but nearly half Democrats don’t believe in the Bill of Rights anymore.
“Forty-five percent (45%) of Democrats would favor governments requiring citizens to temporarily live in designated facilities or locations if they refuse to get a COVID-19 vaccine”
Yes, you read that correctly.
They do want to put the unvaccinated in camps.
I am having difficulty finding the words to describe how evil this is.
Sadly, this isn’t just a fringe group of Democrats we are talking about.
Nearly half of the entire party would support doing such a thing, which says a lot about where we are today.
“Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Democratic voters would support temporarily removing parents’ custody of their children if parents refuse to take the COVID-19 vaccine”
Nearly a third of all Democrats would support this?
I honestly do not know how people can be this evil.
This is yet another sign that people need to be moving out of blue states while they still can.
Of course, it isn’t just Democrats that are pushing for tyrannical measures.
Utah is supposed to be “deeply red.” Still, the editorial board of the largest newspaper in the entire state openly calls for the unvaccinated to be strictly confined to their own homes…
The editorial board of Utah’s largest newspaper – the Salt Lake Tribune – which is controlled by the family of former Governor Jon Huntsman Jr., has called for the deployment of the National Guard “to ensure that people without proof of vaccination would not be allowed, well, anywhere.”
The draconian measure was suggested in a Saturday op-ed titled “Utah leaders have surrendered to COVID pandemic,” suggesting that elected officials have failed to mandate the vaccine for all citizens, and that if Utah was a “civilized place” Governor Spencer Cox (R) would treat the unvaccinated (and no mention of the naturally immune) as lepers with severe lockdown mandates.
Jon Huntsman is a Republican that ran for president.
And his newspaper is pushing for this type of authoritarian measure?
What in the world is happening to us?
Our freedoms and liberties are under unprecedented assault, and once they are gone, it will be exceedingly difficult ever to get them back.
For years, I have been warning about the “Big Brother” police state control grid that is being constructed all around us, and of course, that process has only accelerated during this pandemic.
Now, new authoritarian measures are being implemented on an almost constant basis. For example, I just learned that the Biden administration has set up a system for federal workers to track all “unvaccinated employees who ask for religious exemptions”…
According to a report by the Daily Signal, the Pretrial Services Agency for the District of Columbia, an independent federal agency designed to aid Washington D.C. courts, created the “Employee Religious Exception Request Information System” to track unvaccinated employees who ask for religious exemptions from President Joe Biden’s federal COVID-19 shot mandate.
The Federal Register describes the new system as the best way to keep track of “personal religious information” that is collected “in the context of a public health emergency or similar health and safety incident, such as a pandemic, epidemic, natural disaster or national or regional emergency and/or any other lawful collection of employee information or data that is necessary to ensure a safe and healthy environment for individuals.” Those with concerns about the system only have until Feb. 10 to offer any public comments.
It is very wrong for the Biden administration to do such a thing, but they will do it anyway.
I have documented countless other ways to violate our fundamental rights in other articles.
Fortunately, the courts are slowing them down, but they aren’t going to give up.
The good news is that at least we haven’t descended into the sort of dystopian tyranny that we are now seeing in Australia, New Zealand, Germany, France, Austria, Italy, China, and elsewhere.
But if the authoritarian wing of the Democratic Party has its way, we will eventually get there.
This is such a difficult time in our history because we are on the verge of losing all of the liberties and freedoms that previous generations of Americans worked so hard to win for us.

Notes from the Editor
I think the most shocking thing here is the divide between the ideals of the two political parties; they are as different as you can get. The question has to be, how can we have unity when one side is willing to throw out freedoms the other side tasks as a religious right out the door?
I would not dream of telling someone to get or not to get the vaccine; that is your right, your body, your choice (isn’t this what the Left has been telling us since Roe vs. Wade was passed?).
I know the cost of COVID; we all came down with it for the second time in September; this was after catching it as a household in 2020, getting vaccinated in the spring of 2021, then catching Covid again. When it had worked its way through my home, I was minus a wife; my son lost his mother.
But this idea that because I suffered a loss or some of you may fear loss, we have a right to strip civil liberties away from American citizens, this is against everything this nation was built upon, yet none of this matters to the Left. There is a good reason for this; they have no love for this nation. They find that we were founded on evil; the people that founded it were evil, so why would they have any love for it.
The question that causes me sleepless nights is how long can two opposing views like this, with neither side willing to budge, live peacefully with each other?
