If you thought the weekend memorials for 9/11 offered a glimmer of hope for bipartisanship and patriotism, allow me to burst your bubble. I loved the Air Force cadets running onto the football field all carrying American flags as much as the next guy, but the Washington Leviathan has something very different in mind for our future. Consider the following recent headlines.

The federal government sues Texas over heartbeat law after law is upheld by the Supreme Court. The U.S. education department opens civil rights investigations against states over school mask mandates, despite state courts upholding bans.

President Joe Biden announces two executive orders that would force two-thirds of all working Americans to get the COVID vaccine after promising no vaccine mandates. And Sen. Elizabeth Warren threatens Amazon because anti-vax books are popular among their customers (more on this in a moment).

I don’t want to devolve into a civics lesson here, but checks and balances seem to have flown out the window. The Supreme Court decides a case; we don’t like it, so we’re going to overrule you. State legislatures, governors, and courts (that’s right, all three branches) agree on a policy; we don’t like it, so we’re going to overrule you. Individuals make their own decisions about their own health or simply the books they read; we don’t like it, so we are going to force you into obedience.

Meanwhile, we commemorated the 20th anniversary of 9/11 last week, with heartbreaking remembrances of the innocent victims and the brave first responders. We shared stories of where we were when the towers collapsed and how we came together as a nation to grieve and rebuild.

I now question whether even a tragedy of historic magnitude would unite Americans today. That no longer matters, because the federal government will make sure that if we don’t act, speak and think the proper way, they will shove it down
