    Exclamation When Fascism Comes, It Will Be Wearing a Mask - Ron Paul

    When Fascism Comes, It Will Be Wearing a Mask

    Almost immediately after his inauguration, President Joe Biden began creating new government dictates via executive orders. Many of these executive orders concern coronavirus, fulfilling Biden’s promise to make ramping up a coronavirus-inspired attack on liberty a focus of his first 100 days.

    One of Biden’s executive orders imposes mask and social distancing mandates on anyone in a federal building or on federal land. The mandates also apply to federal employees when they are “on-duty” anywhere. Members of the military are included in the definition of federal employees. Will citizens of Afghanistan, Iraq, and other countries where US troops are or will be “spreading democracy” be happy to learn the troops shooting up their towns are wearing masks and practicing social distancing?

    Another one of Biden’s executive orders forces passengers on airplanes, trains, and other public transportation to wear masks.

    Biden’s mask mandates contradict his pledge to follow the science. Studies have not established that masks are effective at preventing the spread of coronavirus. Regularly wearing a mask, though, can cause health problems.

    Biden’s mask mandates are also an unconstitutional power grab. Some say these mandates are an exercise of the federal government’s constitutional authority to regulate interstate commerce. However, the Constitution gives Congress, not the president, the power to regulate interstate commerce. The president does not have the authority to issue executive orders regulating interstate commerce absent authorization by a valid law passed by Congress. The Founders gave Congress sole law-making authority, and they would be horrified by the modern practice of presidents creating law with a “stroke of a pen.”

    Just as important, the Commerce Clause was not intended to give the federal government vast regulatory power. Far from giving the US government powers such as the power to require people to wear masks, the Commerce Clause was simply intended to ensure Congress could protect free trade among the states.

    Biden also signed an executive order supporting using the Defense Production Act to increase the supply of vaccines, testing supplies, and other items deemed essential to respond to coronavirus. The Defense Production Act is a Cold War relic that gives the president what can fairly be called dictatorial authority to order private businesses to alter their production plans, and violate existing contracts with private customers, in order to produce goods for the government.

    Mask and social distancing mandates, government control of private industry, and some of Biden’s other executive actions, such as one creating a new “Public Health Jobs Corps” with responsibilities including performing “contact tracing” on American citizens, are the type of actions one would expect from a fascist government, not a constitutional republic.

    Joe Biden, who is heralded by many of his supporters as saving democracy from fascist Trump, could not even wait one day before beginning to implement fascistic measures that are completely unnecessary to protect public health. Biden will no doubt use other manufactured crises, including “climate change” and “domestic terrorism,” to expand government power and further restrict our liberty. Under Biden, fascism will not just carry an American flag. It will also wear a mask.
    We must picture Hell as a state where everyone is perpetually concerned about his own dignity and advancement, where everyone has a grievance, and where everyone lives the deadly serious passions of envy, self-importance, and resentment. - C. S. Lewis

    Ron is right like usual. But the democrats have have potus, senate and congress. They didn't even need an EO to do this. They could have rammed it through congress if they wanted to. I blame Trump and his idiotic followers. Trump lost the white house because of his big mouth and control of the Senate too.

    Trump lost the white house because the left was hell bent on removing him at any cost. By whatever means necessary. They decided 4 years ago that Trump was going to lose.

    And noone had balls of even grape size enough to stand in their way.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Your blame is misplaced. Trump being a failure does not absolve the Democrats of responsibility for their actions. Furthermore, the notion that Republicans would have done better without Trump and his supporters is nonsense.

    In bold, a real head scratcher.

    I guess if we ignore the media slandering, the power brokers within his own party admonishing him, and the "other" party putting on one of the most elaborate ruses in our country's history for four years, then sure...

    And the necessary disclaimer - never was and am still not a Trump supporter. I still think he stinks and his lack of pardons for Assange and Snowden solidified that for me. But, this is revisionism or blindness on your part. Take your pick.
    Welcome to the R3VOLUTION!
