There are few republicans in power who are actually standing up to the tyranny in our own government.
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is one of the few.
On Sunday, Senator Paul made an emotional plea on social media to all Americans who are sick and tired of being lied to and dictated to by those in power.
Senator Paul encouraged Americans to “choose freedom” over any Covid related lockdowns and restrictions.
He also told Americans that “It’s time for us to resist.”
The Blaze has more on this important message from Rand Paul:
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is asking Americans to "choose freedom" over any further COVID-19-related lockdowns.
What are the details?
Paul tweeted a video Sunday urging Americans to resist any potential lockdown measures that may be handed down as a result of COVID-19's highly contagious Delta variant.
At the time of this reporting, the Kentucky Republican's video has been viewed more than 521,000 times.
“It's time for us to resist," he insisted. "They can't arrest all of us. They can't keep all of your kids home from school. They can't keep every government building closed — although I've got a long list of ones they might keep closed or might ought to keep closed. We don't have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again."
He singled out Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), saying that she will "not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs" if they refuse to wear masks on U.S. Capitol property.
"Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs," he insisted. "We have either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, we will not be forced into random screenings and testings so you can continue your drunk-with-power reign over the Capitol."
The Federalist has more on Senator Paul's message to Nancy Pelosi:
“Nancy Pelosi, you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs,” Paul continued. “We have either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport. We will not wear a mask. We will not be forced into random screenings and testings, so you can continue your drunk-with-power reign over the Capitol.”
House Speaker Pelosi put in place a new mask policy two weeks ago, with House attending physician Brian P. Monahan caught maskless while lecturing Republicans on the new policy. Members of the GOP then took to the Senate floor on July 29 to demand Democrats cease the mandates.
Democrats have been floating the possibility of more lockdowns, with some states such as Nevada tightening restrictions. Democrat District of Columbia Mayor Muriel Bowser issued a mask mandate in the capital in late July.
Mask requirements returned for federal agencies and their contractors after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidance, which said vaccinated people should wear a face-covering in some situations.
Paul is right to single out hypocrites in power such as Nancy Pelosi, who has ignored her own mask mandate several times.
The ruling class is spreading fear across the nation.
Rand Paul is correct...
It is time for all of us to resist.
