Robert F Kennedy Jr, the son of the former Attorney General under JFK and nephew of Ted, in a statement over the weekend:

>>I’m going to tell you these three things that you need to remember in this critical day and age:

1.) Once government acquires a power, it never lets it go voluntarily.
2.) Every power that government acquires, using this pandemic as a pretense, it will ultimately abuse to the maximum effect possible. This is a rule that is as certain as gravity.
3.) Nobody has ever complied their way out of totalitarianism. Every time you comply the demands will get greater and greater.

We need to resolve here and now that this is the hill we need to die on. They have come for our jobs, they have come for our transport, now they’re coming for our children. We have an obligation as parents to protect them. There has never been a government in history that has told its people, we are going to demand children sacrifice and take risks to save old people. It’s always the other way around. The old, the mature, the adults, always put themselves at risk to protect their children. This is an ethical issue. It’s a moral issue. It’s an issue of character for each of us. And it’s an issue about democracy and public health.<<

All of the board leftists say comply, comply, the government knows best.

There USED to be conservative Democrats and RFK, Jr's father and uncle Jack were two of them. After JFK's assassination, left-leaning LBJ took over the party and led it down the path of FDR-style big government. Pretty soon, 49-state GOP election landslides began to become a rather common thing...
