Even though the first cases of Ebola in the U.S. were in states not located near New York and Washington D.C., it appears the liberal bastion that rules the Northeast corridor of America is having little regard for the Constitution and individual liberties as the state of Connecticut on Oct. 10 has just suspended an important protection from the Bill of Rights, and decreed that anyone even thought to potentially have Ebola will be quarantined and isolated from the rest of society.
We warned a week ago of the various possibilities surrounding an Ebola outbreak in America, and today we get some degree of confirmation of a medical-based martial-law coming to the US. Governor Dan Malloy has declared a Public Health Emergency in Connecticut, authorizing the “isolation of any individual reasonably believed to have been exposed to the Ebola virus.” Simply put, as we noted previously, the State of Public Health Emergency allows bureaucrats to detain and force-vaccinate people without due process – despite not one single case being found in CT. If there is a major Ebola pandemic in America, all of the liberties and the freedoms that you currently enjoy would be gone. – Zerohedge
Quarantine procedures and isolations are historically used when a health epidemic, or civil unrest, threatens the widespread stability of a state, city, or community. In fact, the act of suspending parts of the Constitution were done in the past by Presidents during times to war, and in current times with the unlawful seizure of property by police departments without due process.
However, the Ebola scare is far from being an epidemic, with to date only one person dying fromthe virus, and with that victim not even being a U.S. citizen.
Compare that to the 36000 who died last year, and on average every year in America from simple influenza, and one has to wonder if the Ebola crisis, like Swine Flue or Avian Flu, is more of a political creation than an actual raging epidemic.
Connecticut has not had any deaths from Ebola yet, nor have they even had any verifiable cases but that is not stopping the state government from suspending their citizens Constitutional rights, and putting the entire population on notice that if you sneeze or cough, you could potentially be arrested, quarantined, and injected with vaccines or drugs you do not give permission for.
And just like the outcry for gun control after a couple of lone incidents at Aurora and Sandy Hook, government’s rush for absolute control in times of any potential crisis is something that proves the lack of leadership residing throughout the country.
