Is it time for a revolution?

By Wayne Allyn Root

It was General George Washington who said, “If you want peace, prepare for war.” It’s time for America’s business owners to fight back versus a tyrannical government. Some might call that a revolution. But in this case, I’m talking about a war fought in the courts. I’m talking about a legal battle. It’s time for lawsuits. Lots of them.
It’s time to defend our civil rights. It’s time to defend our property rights. It’s time to make tyrant Governors understand this isn’t a dictatorship. And we’re not your serfs.
First, an important question about coronavirus. I am impressed with how smart the COVID-19 virus is. It appears to be the smartest virus of all time. It doesn’t infect us at Costco, Walmart, supermarkets, pharmacies, gas stations, hardware stores, or any big business deemed “essential” by the government.
But, it will infect us at hair salons, nail salons, restaurants, bars, clothing stores, and any other small business deemed “non-essential” by the government. Is this virus that smart? How does the virus know the difference?
And have Costco employees found “the holy grail?” They’re immune from being around crowds of shoppers, while the coronavirus is kryptonite to all other employees and shoppers, at all other businesses?
Why can’t every small business open up, if they follow the exact same guidelines as Costco? Something is wrong, folks. None of this makes sense. Does it? This can’t be just about a virus. Because if it was, we’d all play by the same rules, right? It sure seems someone is using a real deadly pandemic as an excuse to inflict terrible damage and financial death upon 30 million small business-owners, entrepreneurs and independent contractors in America (not to mention their employees).
And it just so happens that big chains of stores, big chains of restaurants and billion-dollar businesses (including the LA Lakers and giant hotel chains) qualify for “small business” emergency loans, while 99 percent of the mom and pop business owners that I personally know either haven’t gotten a dime, or have been rejected for SBA loans, or have gotten a measly $1,000. Don’t spend it all at once.
As long as I’m telling you about things that make no sense, is it possible in our United States of America that government can tell a small business-owner he or she has no rights; can’t open for business; it’s not your right to feed your family; and we’re going to force you to lose everything you’ve worked your whole life to build? Is that possible?
Even if you comply with the exact same guidelines of big business and big box retailers like Costco? They can remain open, but you can’t? And if you try to open your business, we’ll arrest you. Because a business-owner making decisions about their own property is now a criminal. Really?
But at the same time, that same government that persecutes business owners, runs a scam called “Sanctuary cities.” That same government allows illegal aliens (i.e. real criminals) to walk free; protects them; actually takes taxpayer money from you and me, and gives them welfare, food stamps, housing allowances, free healthcare, free education, and tax refunds from the IRS, even though they pay no taxes. Is that possible?
And of course, this same government that wants to prosecute tax-paying business owners and mothers playing on swings with their children, refuses to hand illegal alien murderers and rapists over to ICE for deportation. Does any of this make sense to you?
Because if all of this is true, it may be time for a revolution. But I want to avoid bloodshed. I want to avoid civil war. I want this revolution to be peaceful. So, as a last resort, I suggest it is time for massive class action lawsuits. It’s time for the Supreme Court to protect us from our own government.
It’s time for every small business owner in America who has been shut down by the government; denied our civil and human rights; denied a right to earn a living; denied a right to feed our children; denied the right to make our own decisions with our own property; to go to court.
It’s time to prove the US Constitution still exists. That it’s not just a piece of paper to be shredded each time the government feels like it. Yes, it’s time to go to war with our own government. But I’m hoping it’s just a legal war to be decided in court.
And after we win and win back our freedoms; our right to earn a living and protect the US Constitution; after all that, I have important advice for President Trump… Don’t bail out any state or city with a dime of our taxpayer money, unless they agree to forever end Sanctuary cities; stop using taxpayer money to hand billions of dollars in handouts to people illegally in this country; and stop shielding illegal alien felons.
Until then, give state governments the same answer they’re giving right now to every small business owner and independent contractor in America… Let them eat cake.
