Over the past few months, politicians across the country have been completely out of control. In an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus, politicians have been systematically eliminating our civil liberties and constitutional rights.
We are asking for concerned citizens to submit their own experiences and stories of government overreach during the coronavirus outbreak. We have seen quite a few cases so far, but we know that there are many more just like them.
It started out slowly with minor restrictions and inconveniences, but new regulations have become increasingly egregious. We are seeing measures in every corner of our country that should scare all of us.
In Michigan, it is against the law for a citizen to travel between different properties that they own. Since when did the government have the authority to restrict a person’s movement between their own property?
In California, it was legal to take a walk or sit on the sand, but against the law to sit in a chair on the beach. Watch as police are forced to harass an elderly couple in their 90’s. Who gave the government authority to treat its citizens this way?

Liberty Alliance USA exists to protect Liberty, and this is one of the largest abuses seen in modern history. Liberty Alliance USA is going to be assisting by keeping a record of these abuses across the country and recommending cases for legal action.
It’s time that We the People stand up to these politicians and send a very clear message: no government has any power to take away our God-given rights. That’s why Liberty Alliance USA is working to catalog governmental overreaches and abuses during the coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to fight back against these violations of the Constitution until politicians get the message:
