Won't tolerate government COVID fearmongering and scientism

Never before in living memory has the government overreacted and overreached as it has during COVID fearmongering and scientism. The blatant and egregious overstepping of the federal government in crushing our liberties in a fumbling, ham-handed attempt to provide some safety can never again be tolerated.
