RNC DITCHES FREEDOM FOR FEAR
Fear is a prevailing emotion in America today, driving public policy and private decisions. Recently, I found myself at the center of this maelstrom. Here is my story.
I am one of 336 persons invited to attend the Republican Presidential Convention and had even been selected by the Chairman to be a Deputy Co-Chair of the Convention.
On July 22, 2020, I submitted a request for a faith-based/religious exemption from the Covid-19 protocols imposed by the Convention leadership. These protocols included RNA testing among numerous other measures. Their response? No faith-based exemptions will be granted. Why? Because many are afraid.
In the absence of this exemption, I chose to not be physically present at the Convention but will serve via proxy.
My sincerely held religious convictions prevent me from submitting to testing and to the other protocols being implemented. My faith embraces the scriptural promise that if we lay hands on the sick, they shall recover, as well as the beautiful promises in Psalm 103:3 and Psalm 91:10.
I cannot in good faith submit to what I perceive as a fraud being perpetrated on the American people—that excessive precautions are somehow legitimate or warranted. I believe these precautions are violations of our first amendment rights of free exercise, free speech, and free assembly. The Republican National Committee (RNC) is the party that professes to protect these liberties; now more than ever we need to stand and defend them.
I sent data to the RNC at the end of March—CDC data documenting only 3,237 confirmed Covid-19 cases at a time when the media was claiming over 160,000 cases. I asked about the accuracy of the data I had sent, and if the “confirmed” numbers could be communicated in an effort to stop the widespread panic the media was promoting. I was informed the data was correct but was asked not to disseminate it. I inquired as to the rationale, as such silence seemed to me to unintentionally play into the hands of those desiring to destroy the economy President Trump had so successfully spurred. I was told the “medical experts” were concerned, and if these small numbers were publicized, people would not conform to the suggested protocols.
Since then we have witnessed the following: credible medical advice being banned from social media as “misinformation;” testing data being purposely and grossly inflated; pharmacies refusing to fill prescriptions for HCQ; fear continuing to be encouraged; drug overdoses, suicides, and depression skyrocketing; and small businesses being decimated and destroyed.
My heart grieves for those who have been seriously ill and those who have lost loved ones; I do not view any sickness or death lightly or any life to be of little value. But as sad as these cases are, the numbers simply do not justify the virtual shutting down of society and trampling on the liberties of the American people. I repeat, the numbers simply are not, and never have been, at the level to justify the gross violations of liberty by executive orders from governors around the nation. It appears that many in the medical community disagree with Dr. Fauci’s opinions. To essentially place the fate of the country in the hands of Fauci or Birx would effectuate an unconstitutional delegation of authority. We must remember that the people elected Donald Trump President, not Anthony Fauci, nor Deborah Birx.
For all of the above, I cannot in good conscience submit to and publicly legitimize the protocols being forced upon the American people. I cannot in good conscience watch as a narrative is being spun to validate voting protocols which expose us to massive voter fraud and a threat to our Presidential election. I cannot in good conscience support a continued economic shutdown and resultant federal spending, further crippling us with massive debt through what can only be defined as socialism. I cannot in good conscience stand by while the potential for mass dissemination of a vaccine is being touted as a great solution, while many Americans view such a vaccine as a threat and potential violation of their freedom.
It is past time for the RNC to stand up and publicly oppose the excessive trespasses on the liberties of the American people. It is past time to resist the liberal media’s relentless rhetoric of gloom and doom and to clearly and unapologetically state the facts. We must not forget that governments are instituted among men to secure unalienable rights, not suppress them as a result of fear.
