Most of America has been on some form of a lockdown for the better part of two months now, and there are signs people have had enough.
Popular podcast host and YouTuber Dave Rubin of the “Rubin Report” told Fox News today that Americans are growing frustrated, love liberty, and will reach a breaking point of this continues much longer.
Protests in Michigan and California have underscored this sentiment, and Rubin discussed them as he pushed back against the power politicians are currently wielding. Via The Blaze:
“Just because they have the power to do something, doesn’t mean they automatically should,” he said. “[Liberal politicians] don’t really explain why they are doing it. So you may have seen the video of the deputy mayor of Los Angeles in a helicopter. And he is showing a completely empty beach. And the way he treated it implied he was sort of proud of it.
“It’s like that is really a recipe for disaster in a state like this,” Rubin insisted, pointing out the fact that residents will remain cooped up in their homes only for so long.
“It’s like, if you don’t let us do these things, then at some point people will break,” he reasoned. “What I think that the progressives are misunderstanding here is that Americans love liberty. Americans love being free. We will be responsible, and we’re willing to take some risk. But we can’t live like rats trapped in our houses forever.”

Michigan also saw see scores of people fed up with orders to remain locked down in their homes unless they are conducting “necessary” activities such as grocery shopping. Californians frustrated at their orders are taking to the streets as well.
This discussion comes as states are beginning to ease or consider easing of restrictions on gatherings and traveling.
