The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in a mockery of freedom. For more than a year, the federal government (and several state governments) forced Americans to hunker down in isolation, all in the name of combatting a virus that isn’t as deadly as we once thought. For the majority of Americans under the age of 65 (without certain co-morbidities) COVID-19 is about as lethal as the flu. However, the government’s draconian measures and the media’s unending fearmongering made many Americans think COVID-19 was akin to the bubonic plague.

Unfortunately, information about the COVID-19 virus, its origins, and risk factors have been contorted and manipulated into mistruths by our government and Fourth Estate.

This is especially true given the fact that many Americans harbor reservations over the vaccine, which is still under emergency use authorization and has caused heart issues among hundreds of American adolescents.

During a recent press conference, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) was questioned about whether he has or hasn’t gotten the vaccine. Rep. Massie responded, “I am not vaccinated. And until there is some science, by the way, I have a Master’s of Science degree from MIT. I’m not a virologist but I can read data. Everybody just needs to read and don’t put your head in the sand.
