COVID-19 is costing you your Constitutional rights

Many Americans, on different sides of the political spectrum, have faced many different feelings about this lockdown passed down on us free citizens by not those in Washington DC; but by our state governors and even some mayors. It’s incredibly sad and frustrating when 30 million Americans are not out of work due to COVID19 whether you think this virus is extremely dangerous or not as bad as the normal flu.

Whether what aisle you find yourself in this political game, Americans have been somewhat fully forced to be at home and stay quarantined. Even if we are not sick; why should we still quarantined? I thought being quarantined was strictly for the sick. Then again, if you’re not wearing a police ankle bracelet why should you be forced to stay at home. Doesn’t that violate your liberty? I don’t remember ever shutting down the economy, retails stores, the service industry over the H1N1 or even just the seasonal flu that we get.

CORONAVIRUS: Should We Be Worried About Our Rights?

CORONAVIRUS: Should we be worried about our rights?In the wake of the Coronavirus crisis, many have complained about government overreach and documented the most heinous examples. What do you think? Are we giving up our rights too soon, or are legal restrictions needed to stop the spread?

While we understand that it was probably for the best to stay at home for about a month so that we could avoid having hospitals overcrowded, I believe we have already reached the point where COVID-19 has peaked. The point of the lockdown was to flatten the curve; it wasn’t to help make the virus go away. Herd immunity is not going to save us because viruses never go away; they stay around.

Because of everyone deemed “non-essential” are forced to stay at home there have been numerous businesses that have to either close, lay off employees or reduce the salary that their employees make. About 30 million of the American workforce has been laid off due to this quarantine from this “plandemic”. We have given up a lot of our rights in order for the government and the professionals to purse this thing. It’s important to be mindful today that we don’t have the rights that we had a little over a month ago. There was a period where we needed to get out of the way, stay safe, let the professionals do their best in handling the coronavirus so they could get us thru this thing healthy and on top. That’s fine, however, understand your constitutional rights have been affected and we need to get them back.

Your state government is violating your constitutional rights

1st Amendment

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Governments are still meeting or doing Zoom meetings and are still able to vote and pass laws without you being able to peacefully assemble and peacefully protest these bogus laws that are getting into the books. Did you know that there are about 40,000 laws that get signed every year? I wonder just how many of those actually violate your civil rights and liberties. You are also not allowed to meet and practice your freedom of religion without the police acting like the gestapo and recording license plate numbers, asking you to leave church property, or fining you $1,000. Your voice is not being heard now meaningfully as it would’ve been before the lockdown.

2nd Amendment

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

There are states that have forced gun stores to close down because they considered them to be “non-essential”. Or they have prohibit the amount of type of ammo that you can purchase. So, while the jails are letting out criminals so they do not come in contact with the coronavirus while incarcerated; how do they expect you to be able to have the tools and means necessary to protect yourself and your loved ones?

4th Amendment

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

The Department of Justice is looking for and is probably going to get expanded, broad, emergency powers. These can affect the rights of the accused. This can affect arrests, searches and seizures, arraignments, detention hearings.

The mayor of Elizabeth, New Jersey had announced that they will be using China-made drones to spy on individual outside their homes.

5th Amendment

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

Millions and millions of people have had disruption in their ability to work, to make money, and to go out. And the Fifth Amendment states that we be deprived of property without due process of law.

Many Americans across different states will not comply with the bogus stay-home orders

We are clearly in uncharted waters as we deal with coronavirus and its immediate and long term public health, economic, and societal implications. As of right now, parting with some civil liberties to allow the professionals to get a grip seems like a reasonable step. However, as we come out of this thing on top, let’s bring our Constitutional rights with us.
