(OPINION) Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we all wake up someday and the pandemic is finally behind us? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to go back to a world with no masks, no restrictions, and no mandates?

I know that is what so many of you want. I want it too. Just like millions of others, we are ready for this long nightmare to finally end. Unfortunately, we are now being told that this crisis is never going to have an end. COVID is apparently going to be with us indefinitely, and that means that we will be talking about masks, restrictions, and mandates for years on end.

I know that must sound extremely depressing because it sounded extremely depressing when I wrote it. In the long run, it appears that the best chance that we have of escaping the status quo would be to vote in new leaders that understand the importance of freedom.

But voters in California just had that opportunity, and they didn’t take it. Voters in Canada just had an opportunity to get rid of Trudeau, and that didn’t happen either. I don’t know if I will ever understand why people would willingly choose leaders such as Newsom and Trudeau. It makes no sense to me at all.

Sadly, they are far from being exceptions, because we have people like them in positions of power all over the western world right now. Control freaks are drawn to politics like moths to a flame, and this pandemic has given them a perfect opportunity to exercise their worst instincts.

So many officials have decided to use what power they have to punish and oppress those that they disagree with, and that is extremely unfortunate. Earlier today, I was stunned to learn that one official in Australia just went on television and warned that “life for the unvaccinated will be very difficult indefinitely”…

Berejiklian said people who choose not to be vaccinated could be barred entry to shops, restaurants and entertainment venues even after the state lifts all restrictions against them on Dec. 1. “A lot of businesses have said they will not accept anyone who is unvaccinated,”

Berejiklian told Seven News on Tuesday. “Life for the unvaccinated will be very difficult indefinitely.” What a thing to say. “Indefinitely” is a very long time. Pfizer CEO Dr. Albert Bourla is also telling us to expect permanent changes to our lifestyles. Over the weekend, he told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos the following…

“The most likely scenario for me, it is because the virus has spread all over the world, that we will continue seeing new variants that are coming out, and also we will have vaccines that will last at least a year. I think the most likely scenario is annual revaccinations, but we need to wait and see the data.” READ MORE
