Last week we called on all Americans to Stand Up, Open Up, and Show Up for #FreedomFriday. You answered in a big way, and the national media took notice.
Fox News ran a segment highlighting several of the videos uploaded by Open the States patriots explaining how they planned to push back against tyrannical lockdown orders.
"Fear has crippled a lot of people, and you have a lot of people who are afraid to make the wrong decision," said James Gray, owner of the Michigan Institute of Athletics. Gray opened his business in defiance of Michigan's lockdown order.
"It's times like this throughout history, when you bring people together and you make those decisions, that you enact change. That's the goal of this movement. We're trying to get back to work. We're trying to get the country back on its feet."
We can end tyrannical lockdown orders. The Open the States movement is growing, and our elected leaders can't ignore us forever.
