DEFEND YOUR CIVIL LIBERTIES

SIGN THE PETITION

WHEREAS we recognize the seriousness of the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the need to take strong personal actions to combat its contagion and also the need for local communities to provide for adequate medical care for those who are infected,

WHEREAS Governors, mayors and county sheriffs across the nation are declaring states of emergency under the guise of protecting the public from the coronavirus,

WHEREAS these emergencies have been declared without respect to Civil Liberties contained in the First, Second and Fourth Amendments,

WHEREAS the right to peaceable assembly has been nullified by limiting to very small groups and in some cases declaring that violators will be fined and/or incarcerated,

WHEREAS churches are being forced to abandon physical assemblies in favor of online broadcasting that is not available to a vast number of smaller churches in America,

WHEREAS businesses are being forced out of business because of mandated closure for indefinite periods of time,

WHEREAS the Second Amendment is being violated when government executives, using unchecked power granted them to combat the spread of the Coronavirus, use that power to deny citizens their right to purchase arms and/or ammunition, 

WHEREAS the Fourth Amendment is being violated when citizens are not secure "in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures [that] shall not be violated",

WHEREAS all of these actions are preventing citizens from exercising their Unalienable Rights as guaranteed in the Declaration of Independence, including the right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness,

    I have worked at a travel center since Feb. 28. We have been unable to fill personal cups with coffee or soda and we aren’t allowed to sell “refills” (local health department rules to remain open.) We sanitize all contact points every hour, have plexiglass shields by each register, are requiring no credit card signatures, use hand sanitizer for employees and customers, as well as for sale. We have masks for sale. We have had no employee tested for or diagnosed as having Covid. May 1, we met the state guidelines and now are forced to wear face masks through our shifts of 6-10 hours, 5-7 days a week. There is no more covid in our county than before May and I am tired of caution for the sole purpose of protecting people who could easily avoid Covid without changing the lives of an entire nation. Unnecessary protections and pre-treating out of extreme caution is not only an infringement on our rights, it is an assault on our lives, emotional health and overall security as a nation and individually. If any of us has covid at my workplace, we are spreading it in spite of our diligence, and more likely to get sicker because of it. Let us be our own keepers. Polio didn’t cause a pandemic, neither has covid. Ignorance and paranoia will certainly prolong it!

    Our elected officials must be held accountable for failing to keep their sworn oath “to support and defend the Constitution.” The infringement of our rights for any reason must not be allowed to happen again.

    I am tired of government taking away our freedoms. We have no responsibility because our

    government does not think we are responsible, They are taking our choice away.
