Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) is calling on Americans to rebel against efforts by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (R-Calif.) and President Joe Biden to impose another destructive coronavirus lockdown on the nation.

Americans need to ignore Democrats’ fear tactics and propaganda and say, “Not this time. I choose freedom,” Sen. Paul says in a video message posted Sunday on Twitter:

“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.’”

“Nancy Pelosi: you will not arrest or stop me or anyone on my staff from doing our jobs,” Sen. Paul tells the House speaker, accusing her with being power-mad:

“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.”

“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,” Paul tells Pelosi.

A tide of resistance against Democrats’ destructive lockdown strategy is growing, not just in Congress, but also among the American people who don’t want their economy and society ravaged and their children harmed, Sen. Paul says in closing:

“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.’”
