    Thank you for this podcast. Joe Biden says “This is not about freedom.” I struggle to express exactly how wrong that is. It’s like a mugger telling me “I’m not the bad guy here.” The very fact that you’re holding me at gunpoint and I’m fishing out my wallet means you don’t get to make that declaration. Now go ahead and tell me how it’s not about the money as you relieve me of every cent I’m carrying.

    The government doesn’t get to determine what is and what isn’t about freedom, because if it does then it can always decide that nothing is about freedom and then we won’t have any freedom at all.

    Amen!  I hope more people begin to share your sentiments about this.
