Locked Down With the Stroke of a Pen

Big Government is too damn big!

With a simple stroke of the pen, Big Government has shut down the entire nation and brought life as we know it to a screeching halt.  You can't go out to eat in a restaurant or even visit friends or loved ones in the hospital or nursing home without being forced to put on a face mask and let them check your temperature.

 Whole states are on lockdown, people have been ordered to stay in their homes and shelter in place until the Government lifts the order and allows life to return to normal.  It's like you cannot go anywhere or do anything even the Churches are closed and forced to live stream their services over the internet.  You can go to the store but the shelves are empty because of a few greedy people who have decided to load up on essential items such as toilet paper and bottled water as well as other items.

One pharmacy reports doctors coming in to try and buy hundreds of doses of the drugs being used to fight this epidemic for them and their families. What about everyone else's families?  People are in a panic because they are scared of what is happening and they don't know how to properly react. 

Facemasks are in short supply along with other supplies needed to protect those who help people who are sick and/or injured. Manufacturers are stepping up to fill the demand but they are having a hard time catching up to it.  Even General Motors may start to manufacture ventilators due to the short supply across the nation.

Now why I understand the need to limit people's exposer I disagree with Big Government limiting our freedom to this degree. It is scary enough that some people have died from this virus it is also scary that Government can shut the whole nation down with the stroke of a pen, and that some unscrupulous politicians and media hacks are using this crisis as a tool to further their socialist agenda. 

The founders of this nation created the balance of powers in order to keep Government in check and created Government to be for and by the people not by special interests and career politicians.  They never intended for the Government to become a massive entity made up of power-hungry, self-serving ideologues. We are not at the mercy Big Government and how much longer will our lives be disrupted by this virus?

We must take back the power and put it back in the hands of the American people and this is exactly what President Donald Trump is doing and why he needs another term in office to complete his mission.  If we elect the Communist Democrats we will just have much more of what we have now and it won't be a good thing. We cannot afford not to support President Trump.
