Remember to “bring deine papiere mit (german)” or “bring your papers” in English if you’re going to go out in Washington, D.C., starting on January 15, 2022. Forget your identification when you’re voting? No problem!
Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted, “Remember that starting Saturday, you will need these three things before heading out: 1. Proof of Vaccination (12 years +) 2. Proof of Vaccination and Photo ID (18 years +) 3. Mask”
Unless you’re the President of the United States, Joe Biden didn’t wear a mask in Washington, D.C. when there was an indoor mask mandate, and nothing happened. Should everyone else live by those standards? Then we can assign one press secretary for every person to make excuses. It should work out well.
Honestly, in Washington, D.C., businesses need to get ready to lose business if they comply. It’s been proven across the country that when COVID-19 vaccine mandates go into effect, businesses lose money.
There’s an old saying from some document out there that says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that their Creator endows them with certain unalienable Rights, among them are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
If someone’s happiness is going to the gym unvaccinated, what government official has the right to tell that person no? Not one of them.
The document continues, “That to guarantee these rights, Governments are established among Men, deriving their legitimate powers from the consent of the governed.”
Regardless of what elected leaders think, if citizens do not have consensual governance, they can be stopped. There are legal ways to prevent or reverse the legislation. Still, the fact remains that if a majority of people are against a measure that an elected leader is pushing, what is a politician going to do? At the lowest level of enforcement, the police departments and sheriff’s offices have to stop enforcing unjust laws, mandates, governor’s orders, and city ordinances. If they stop, there’s nothing anyone can do about it. It would take a group effort, but it’s not impossible.
Then there’s the racist factor of the vaccine passports. Bowser joined a protest over voting rights to stop the requirement of voter identification to cast a ballot. It’s interesting that Bowser supports identification for vaccine passports but not voter identification.
As of January 10, 2022, Washington, D.C., has fewer Black Americans vaccinated than their White American counterparts. White Americans are 66% vaccinated, and Black Americans are 52% vaccinated. Starting on January 15, 2022, Black Americans are more segregated than White Americans. That should throw many red flags for these vaccine passport mandates coming down from the leaders of Washington, D.C., and many others.
