Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) put out a powerful video against any further lockdowns and it’s driving folks on the left wild.
Paul made it very simple, saying that we were done with any more lockdowns and if they tried to impose them again, “It’s time to resist.”
We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads. Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children?
Or will we stand together and say, absolutely not. Not this time. I choose freedom. pic.twitter.com/XrI2tjdAHW

Paul ripped apart mandates, starting with the mandate on mask wearing on House members.
“They can’t arrest all of us. They can’t keep all of your kids home from school. They can’t keep every government building closed – although I’ve got a long list of ones they might keep closed or might ought to keep closed. We don’t have to accept the mandates, lockdowns, and harmful policies of the petty tyrants and bureaucrats. We can simply say no, not again. Nancy Pelosi — you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs. We have either had COVID, had the vaccine, or been offered the vaccine. We will make our own health choices. We will not show you a passport, we will not wear a mask, we will not be forced into random screenings and testings so you can continue your drunk-with-power rein over the Capitol.”
Paul also warned Joe Biden against locking down federal agencies again, saying he would “stop every bill coming through the Senate with an amendment to cut their funding if they don’t come back to work in person.”
Paul stressed the importance of children getting back to school and said he would also stop any bill that got in the way of that.
“Children are falling behind in school, and are being harmed physically and psychologically by the tactics that you have used to keep them from the classroom during the last year. We won’t allow it again. If a school system attempts to keep the children from full-time, in-person school, I will hold up every bill with two amendments. One to defund them, and another to allow parents the choice of where the money goes for their child’s education. Do I sound fed up to you? That’s because I am.
Paul said that he’d been thanked a lot for standing up against mandates, “I think the tide is turning” he said.
“I think the tide is turning as more and more people are willing to stand up. I see stories from across the country of parents standing up to the unions and school boards. I see brave moms standing up and saying, ‘My kids need to go back to school in-person.’ I see members of Congress refusing to comply with Petty Tyrant Pelosi. We are at a moment of truth and a crossroads. Will we allow these people to use fear and propaganda to do further harm to our society, economy, and children? Or will we stand together and say, absolutely not? Not this time. I choose freedom.”
The left revealed just how crazy they are in response in typical fashion — with lies and praise for Rand Paul’s neighbor (who attacked him, breaking six of his ribs and causing him serious lung damage, with a piece of his lung having to be removed as a result). They also spread a fake picture of him allegedly getting the vaccine and claimed that he isn’t licensed as a doctor, when of course, he is.
Rand Paul telling people to defy the CDC and they 'can't arrest all of us.' Imagine if someone told Rand Paul's neighbors to kick his ass, and that they couldn't arrest all of us.' Would be like the movie THE WARRIORS, with neighbors from every home looking to kick his ass.
