Freedom is a muscle.
When is the last time YOU exercised it?
Think back over the last 14 months.
Think about all the lockdowns. Think about all the mask mandates. Think about all the social distancing requirements. Think about all the school, church, and business closures. Think about all the quarantines. Think about the massive, obsessive push for vaccinations. Think about all the ruling class intrusions into your work, travel, leisure, finances, family life, etc.
How many times in the last 14 months have you stood up straight and tall and said, "No"?
Freedom is a muscle. How many times over the last 14 months have you exercised it?
· It doesn’t take a strong person to obey.
· It doesn’t take a strong person to bow in submission to a tyrannical master.
· It doesn’t take a strong person to join a mindless mob.
· It doesn’t take a strong person to agree with “experts” and “authority.”
ALL of these reflect WEAKNESS, not strength. COWARDICE, not courage. GULLIBILITY, not goodness.
It takes a strong person to disobey.
It takes a strong person to refuse to bow to tyrants.
It takes a strong person to stand alone against a mob.
It takes a strong person to think for themselves and to disagree with “experts” - to expose their false authority.
ALL of these reflect STRENGTH, not weakness.
But you must CHOOSE to exercise the muscle of freedom.
The more you exercise it, the stronger it gets.
The more you passively stand down and shut up, the weaker it gets.
Never forget: no one obeys their way to freedom.
Never forget: true freedom is not given back, it’s taken back.
Face down your fears. Move forward in freedom.
Freedom is a muscle. Start exercising it today.
