AN OPEN LETTER TO AMERICA FROM AN AVERAGE AMERICAN
September 6th, 2021 - Labor Day
After tolerating an entire year like no other, the American Worker is still under attack. Regardless of Industry, Job Title, or Years of Experience, The Working Man and Woman is plagued by serious problems in need of real-world solutions as soon as possible and no one with the authority to do anything about it seems to have the answers let alone the common sense or desire to fix things.
At the very top of the long laundry list of dirty issues is the legitimate controversy over COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates from both the Private and Public Sector.
At the end of the day, I’m just like each-and-every one of you. I’m a Husband, a Father, and the Sole Income Provider for my family of five who was told I will lose my job as a Talent Acquisition Manager for a National Non-Profit Healthcare Organization despite my 17 years of industry experience and after five years of dedicated, loyal service going above-and-beyond at all times, and so I will lose my job simply because I researched the evidence, weighed the potential risks, and have made the personal decision to not get vaccinated by my employer’s deadline.
Now, I’m forced to say goodbye to my six-figure income, my family's health benefits, and my fully remote Work-From-Home job as a result. Like you, I’m faced with the prospect of trying to figure out how I will pay our bills and put food on the table without losing our home and other basic necessities in the process. A scary prospect for sure regardless of one’s own unique personal circumstances, but my faith remains in God Almighty as opposed to the Almighty Dollar, and that’s what our political leaders and employers driving these destructive policies don’t understand.
By now, we all know that this isn’t about “the health of others” despite what they say. I know it. You know it. We all know it. Even those making these totalitarian “Rules For Thee, But Not For Me” know it. Naturally, because a majority of them are motivated by greed and money, they assume that threatening to take away our economic freedom and financial livelihood is what will ultimately make us all bow down, and if we don't submit to The Powers That Be and end up suffering the consequences instead, then they believe they will still win in the end since we'd eventually become entirely dependent on them for everything, and subservient in every way, shape and form in order to preserve and maintain that dependency.
What they fail to realize is that most of us receive a lot more from what we do than just a paycheck that can only give us dollars and cents. Our God-given vocations are not relegated to being "just" a Bus Driver, a Factory Worker, a First Responder, a Garbageman, a Nurse, a Pilot, a Server, a Small Business Owner, a Store Clerk, a Recruiting Manager, or a Teacher. We are so much more than our Job Title! We are Husbands and Wives, Fathers and Mothers, Brothers and Sisters, Friends and Neighbors and our freedom and liberty isn't just granted to us by the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, but it is found in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior!
Now, if that kind of talk scares you, then just realize that you don’t have to be a Christian or a member of any faith to believe the foundational truths that our great nation was built upon. You just need to believe that there are truths that are self-evident…
“…that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
-- Declaration of Independence July 4th 1776
You don’t even have to be political to agree with me or the stated mission of this Business and Community. This is so much bigger than any Political Party or any of its names and faces. At the end of the day, you just need to be a red-blooded American who still believes “in Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” like I do.
Friends, what more can I say that hasn’t been said already? We’ve all been a part of this debate for months now in our daily lives as well as on Social Media, we’ve all seen and shared the Memes, and now it’s time to DO SOMETHING about it so that we don't become Australia before we know it.
This is my humble attempt to provide one simple solution to this relentless nonsense using my own personal experiences and professional expertise in the only way that I know how. Whether it ultimately fails or succeeds when all is said and done, at least I will be able to tell my children that I did what I could to preserve their personal freedoms in this country we call the United States of America, while trying to provide for them along the way. In the end, I pray that it will help you and your family, will help freedom-loving businesses nationwide, and countless others who will be impacted by this group's pure desire to do whatever job they were hired to do, to help anyone-and-everyone who crosses our path along the way, and to put in an honest day’s work.
Look, I'm no one special. I'm just an average American like anyone else who believes in working hard, doing the right thing, and supporting my family and helping my local church and community (and those who are a part of it) whenever there's a need.
I decided to create Jobs Not Jabs CAREERS and Jobs Not Jabs TRUTH SERUM after it became crystal clear to me that my dedication, loyalty and lifetime of "following the rules" and always "doing the right thing" didn't matter when push came to shove. I'm tired of it. I know that if you're reading this, then you're probably tired of it too. I still firmly believe in God, this country, and this code of ethics, but now it's time to try and help others like me by DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT in the hopes of helping a few who can then help many more themselves!
Will you please join me in spreading the word and joining this noble cause? Let’s exercise our “right of the people peaceably to assemble” even if only here online and virtually. Let’s use our “freedom of speech” to let this nation know that we want JOBS NOT JABS!
Let's keep America FREE!
Let's keep America WORKING!
