“Give me liberty AND give me death!”

I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty… AND give me death!

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for people to go outside without wearing a mask, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the right to get our hair done and nails painted, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them (emphasis on the word ENTITLE), a decent respect to the right to sunbathe on the beach which impels them to protest quarantine.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are entitled to go wherever they want whenever they want regardless of impact to human health, that they are endowed by their Creator to do business at whichever stores they please, that among these are Costco, Trader Joe’s and that one boba store down the street— and that whenever any form of government becomes to destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to wear AK-47s and rocket launchers to terrorize local government officials who dare listen to science.

Our online petitions (written by online users who definitely have proper qualifications to do so) have been objectively listened to and carefully weighed by our elected officials; our remonstrances have been met with additional mockery and insult; our sense of entitlement has been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, in all liberal  media… we must whine! I repeat it, sir, we must whine! An appeal to the wambulance and to the God of crybabies is all that is left for us!

Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of our stock market and economy crashing? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty… AND give me death!

In the name of regaining our righteous, honorable, God-given American freedom, I and many Americans across the country will be taking to the streets to #SayNoToQuarantine.

I have taken great inspiration from the bravery of recent protestors speaking out against the government’s tyranny. Since the beginning of April, I have studiously observed Box News broadcasts and cheered in my living room as my fellow Americans fought for their freedom against the COVID-19 outbreak that led to the government-issued quarantine. I commend the protestors for personally fighting against the oppressive nature of the government by exposing the lies they have told us to try and keep us isolated in our homes.

“The concept of quarantine is absolutely tyranny,” protestor Nok- woran Tien said. “According to the 316th amendment of the Bill of Rights, the US of A is a free country, which means I deserve the right to contract the ‘deadly virus’ if I want to. This ‘pandemic’ thing isn’t real anyways.”

Many have also taken to the internet to voice their opinions on the matter, with a multitude of trends springing up in support of these anti-quarantine efforts. The latest Tik- Tok trend, dubbed #BostonTeaParty2.0, has teenagers dumping soap and hand sanitizer into their toilets in an effort to denounce the use of sanitary products in their day-to-day lives. Who needs to stay clean when we could be cleaning up the government instead?

It’s time for us as Americans to fight for our freedoms and refuse to conform to the government’s rules of quarantine. By exercising our First Amendment rights, we will end this pandemic together. Join us in the fight to end quarantine, for once and for all.
