ACRU Action’s Roman Testifies on COVID Passports Before MI House of Representatives

The founders risked everything to fight for liberty. Imagine what they would think about COVID Passports. The passports are so antithetical to liberty, freedom of association, medical choice and privacy, and full participation in society, that once they are implemented there is likely no return to a free republic.

The COVID Passport: Fascism at Hand

Is the COVID passport the scariest idea of them all? Think about this. It's the first "real" mandated program, run by the government, "allowing" and "denying" behavior based on personal attributes private to... you. You've noticed how the tech companies collect data subversively and just happen to show you that new ad for a (fill in the blank) just minutes after you looked at something similar somewhere on the internet. Now apply that concept to your not-very-trustworthy government and think about how the passport can be used to collect all manner of information about your beliefs, actions, purchases and who knows what else. Scary stuff...

Message to American companies: quit suppressing speech!

Free speech is not just a Constitutional protection that protects us from government tyranny, but it is a guiding principle of our society and a cornerstone of our liberty.

Flickertail State further codifies the individual rights of the faithful

Kudos to North Dakota legislators for pushing a bill that that will restrict state bureaucrats from blocking worship and religious practices during a state of emergency while ensuring that participation in faith activities is not treated with punitive bias. In theory, Constitutional rights should not need “extra” state protections, but we have learned that they do. Other states should follow suit.
