Come and make me.

Today, that’s my message to President Joe Biden.

If the president wants to act like a king and a tyrant, he’s going to have to do more than sign a piece of paper or pass a new unconstitutional regulation. He’s going to have to come to my house, hold me down, and put the vaccine in my arm himself.

Civil disobedience is the only way to save the Republic. This is where we draw the line. Federal overreach is nothing new, but Biden’s latest COVID vaccine mandate is the most blatant and breathtaking overstep in my lifetime.

It’s obviously unconstitutional. It’s patently authoritarian. And it’s disgustingly misguided.

That’s why I’m calling on all Americans who still care about freedom and self-governance to disobey. If you own a business with more than 100 employees, do what our friends at the Daily Wire just did. Stand up and tell King Biden you won’t bow to his dictates.

If you’re an employee whose employer is about to mandate the vaccine, quit. Don’t give notice. Just leave. It doesn’t matter how essential you are to your company or how much chaos it will cause. This is more important.

Just last week, 30 employees resigned at a hospital in upstate New York over the coming vaccine mandate. As a result, the hospital had to shut down its maternity ward.

If you’re an American who’s been blessed with a good employer and you don’t have to resign, support others who do. Call your friends and family who might be facing down a vaccine mandate and offer to help. Giving aid to those disobeying tyrannical laws is just as crucial as civil disobedience itself.

Don’t get me wrong: I’m not against the COVID vaccine. I understand those who are hesitant, but I also understand those who’ve taken the jab. For many Americans, the vaccine appears to be far safer than contracting the disease. If you’re one of those folks, good for you. I’m glad the vaccine is so readily available in our country, and it’s doubtless saved many lives over the past few months.

But the “who decides” principle applies here. Who decides is far more important than what is decided. I care far less about whether people decide to take the vaccine than I do about who gets to make that call.

Should federal bureaucrats, headed by a would-be king, dictate that decision to millions of Americans and thousands of businesses?

Or should you be able to decide?

For many Americans, the answer is obvious. That’s probably why nearly 60% of Americans believe Biden’s vaccine mandate is unconstitutional, including 68% of Independents, 84% of Republicans, and 27% of Democrats. That’s according to a new poll from Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group.

The numbers are skewed along party lines, but Biden should be terrified that nearly one-third of his own party thinks his mandate is unconstitutional. Plus, the fact that such a high percentage of Independents disagree with the mandate is good news for Republicans heading into 2022.

This issue bigger than politics, of course. This gets at the heart of our national character. Do we want to live in a country where a single man can make healthcare decisions for millions? Or do we want to live in a country where big decisions are left to the people and the states?

I know how I’m answering that question, and I hope you do, too.

The time is now for civil disobedience. I hope the legal challenges to this mandate succeed, but I don’t trust the courts to protect liberty. That’s our job. We’re the final guardians of freedom and self-governance, and we must take a stand now before we lose what’s made our nation great.
