Well, a quarter million Americans have died from COVID-19, thanks to the lack of cooperation of many. Even so, many are STILL protesting against any restrictions, and are boldly posting memes featuring a copy of the Constitution designed to remind us of our “rights.”
My question is: WHERE in the Constitution does it tell us we have a “right” to purposely and carelessly risk exposing ourselves to a deadly virus and then spread it?
It's a proven FACT that careless behavior by people participating in large gatherings has been a (if not THE) major reason for the steep increase in cases!
How many huge weddings, football games, birthday parties and other large “super-spreader” events will it take before people decide to cooperate by wearing masks and doing some social distancing?
It seems, because they can't SEE this virus, they apparently see no reason to change their lifestyles. (Remember - you can't SEE the wind, either, but you can certainly see the devastating damage it can do...)
I shudder to think what will happen after the Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings, as myriads are already protesting the pleas to stay home and forego the gatherings this year to keep this deadly virus from getting completely out of control…. (I mean, would it really kill you to do your part by staying at home this year?)
How many millions of deaths will it take for people to wake up to the reality of COVID, and start cooperating by using some common sense preventive methods? Are a quarter million not enough?
Now since the virus has gained major ground, there's no stopping it in time to save the millions who will surely become infected before any vaccine is distributed....
(And speaking of vaccines - I haven't seen any vocal "anti-vaxxers" saying a word about the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines about to hit the market, LOL!)
It's truly sad that Americans feel the Constitution includes the “RIGHT” to do whatever they wish – even if it means that their uncooperative and rebellious behavior may cause the deaths of millions ... including those innocents who have been DOING their part all along.
Moshe (Moses) wrote:
Deuteronomy 31:28 Assemble for me all the leaders of your tribes and your officials, so that I can say these things in their hearing, calling heaven and earth to witness against them — 29 because I know that after my death you will become very corrupt and turn aside from the way that I have ordered you, and that disaster will come upon you in the acharit-hayamim, because you will do what Adonai sees as evil and provoke him by your deeds.”
Isaiah 1:4 "Oh, sinful nation, a people weighed down by iniquity, descendants of evildoers, immoral children! They have abandoned Adonai, spurned the Holy One of Isra'el, turned their backs on him! 5 "Where should I strike you next, as you persist in rebelling? The whole head is sick, the whole heart diseased. 6 From the sole of the foot to the head there is nothing healthy, only wounds, bruises and festering sores that haven't been dressed or bandaged or softened up with oil. 7 "Your land is desolate, your cities are burned to the ground; foreigners devour your land in your presence; it's as desolate as if overwhelmed by floods.

2 Timothy 3:3 Moreover, understand this: in the acharit-hayamim (latter days) will come trying times. 2 People will be self-loving, money-loving, proud, arrogant, insulting, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, uncontrolled, brutal, hateful of good, 4 traitorous, headstrong, swollen with conceit, loving pleasure rather than God, 5 as they retain the outer form of religion but deny its power.
