Editor, Casa Grande Dispatch:

Our rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness have been eroded by our own governments! We have been forced and coerced to stay at home or limit where we may go or what we may do. We Americans should have the right and choice to go where we please and conduct ourselves as we freely choose, within the bounds of what is right. We have become our own enemies. We have become a controlled country, becoming more like China and other socialist and communist countries, where we are controlled and forced by our own governments how to conduct our lives, all for what they insist is for our own good and safety for the whole.

Let the people decide what is good and safe for themselves to choose with whom and where they choose to be or go to, with others free to choose to avoid people or places they don't feel safe with or to go to. George Orwell's 1984 has arrived! America has long enjoyed all the cheap Chinese-produced goods and products from a country that failed to warn us and the whole world in advance from the beginning regarding the COVID-19 virus, giving us the worst pandemic America has ever endured. China destroyed our economy and our way of life. We need to rethink our dealings with China. May our Bill of Rights once more become true again!

Philip Menne
