Our governments need to be on our borders securing our countries, not trying to save us from each other.  Here are a couple good ones:

"Those who would give up Essential Liberty to purchase a little Temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."
-- Benjamin Franklin

"If you want total security, go to prison. There you're fed, clothed, given medical care and so on. The only thing lacking... is freedom."
-- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Yeah. Like any of your freedoms have disappeared. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Just look at this forum. You and the rest of this motley crew are free to spew whichever nonsense they can think of. Like the covid vaccine is magnetizing people. 

Magnetizing people? Come on, hon. Come on.
