Defend Small Businesses From Govt Overreach

Ever since the government forced shutdowns in March of 2020, people have been wondering what they can do to help small businesses survive and thrive. Here is your chance to help!

Many businesses are afraid to support the health freedom of their employees and customers because of threatened government fines as high as $10,000. No small business should be forced to choose between being an agent of the government to stay open and honoring the health freedom of their employees and customers.

Courts are refusing to hear cases on this subject and lawmakers are turning a blind eye. WE have to step up as a community.

We are raising funds to help these small businesses maintain their independence, support their community and avoid living in fear of these fines. To do so, we’d like to raise enough to sponsor at least five (5) qualifying small businesses, that’s a base goal of $50,000.

As a part of this campaign, we will produce tools to help all businesses that want help.  This includes health freedom oriented signage  for the businesses to post, letting customers and employees know their business respects their health choices and won’t act as a government enforcement agent in addition to other education and support services.

These signs will also declare to any government official, that the business follows the law, because there is no law requiring businesses to micro manage the personal health choices of their customers or employees, and even the governor’s orders allow many exemptions.  It is not the responsibility of the business to investigate their employees and customers health needs.

Additional signage letting the community know this business is “Staying open to stay free”.

Government shutdowns won’t stop them from providing an income for their families and the families of their employees. They’re staying open, and the community can depend on them to provide the services we’ve come to rely on. With more businesses claiming their right to stay open, we better preserve our inalienable right to engage in commerce, also known as our right to contract as it’s referred to in the constitution.

With this campaign, we will be reaching out to educate businesses on their rights, how they can take a stand and letting them know we won’t leave them hanging when the strong arm of the government tries to bully them into submission..

Your donation is a mutual pledge between you and the small business community. They are pledging to support your health freedom, and your donation is a pledge to support the community with piece of mind as well as understanding of how to stand up for freedom.

Your pledge will help defend freedom through both education AND action. With the signage and education campaign, we are informing the community of their rights and what the law really is. Then we are offering logistical support to help businesses avoid fines by providing a phone number that businesses can refer confused customers to about the law, so the business doesn’t have to provide a law degree to each of their employees just to defend their right to stay open from every uneducated customer or health worker. And in the case where a health worker attempt to issue an illegal citation, we’ll work to get it thrown out, but give peace of mind to businesses that in the worst case scenario the people’s donations will cover any fines incurred by a qualifying small business. So you see the big picture, that we’re backing up the education with a strong defense mechanism, to give you more safe places to shop free from the worry of being harassed by store employees or other customers.

Your community needs you now more than ever, wont you please donate to and share this campaign with your friends and family?
