GLENDALE, Ariz. – Phoenicians Ernest and Donna Hancock spent the year roaming the states in their “Love Bus”, bringing awareness and caution toward possible coronavirus vaccine mandates.

Since 2019, the couple has driven from city to city holding seminars to educate the public on themes of liberty and patriotism.  Lately, they have been bringing awareness to the consequences of the vaccine, talking about the physical side effects, among other reactions.

“I am not anti-vaccine; I am not anti-anything.  I am pro-freedom.  If you want to do it, do it. I have friends who want this vaccine, fine, I’ll drive them to the appointment. Our focus is not to be pro or anti-vaccine, just to give the facts. The biggest thing we are advocating for is no force or coercion by government,” Ernest Hancock said.

While some say that his summits are “anti-vax,” others agree with his stance on the matter.  “Mr. Hancock was very clear when he stated that he is not trying to sway people one way or the other in their decision-making process of getting the vaccine. I agree that I would not be comfortable in any way shape or form if I was forced to get it,” Paige Mills, a student at Glendale Community College said.

Though the husband-and-wife team visit a new city about every week, they do not conduct seminars every time.  The couple will usually help activist groups in each city, teaching them what they know, helping them make political signs, and then interviewing them, before moving on to the next city.

The bus has 800 watts of solar power on the roof. It has a backup generator, four different internet services, a washer, a dryer, and a studio for broadcasting live. It also has cameras, alarm systems, and other upgrades installed.

While Ernest Hancock has only conducted the Love Bus tours for a couple of years now, he has been active in the Libertarian Party for 30 years.

“I have filed a lawsuit against the state of Arizona for 44 election laws and it went all the way to the 9th Circuit. I have done a few Supreme Court cases, and an appeals court on this-and-that. I became county chairman of the Libertarian Party in the ‘90s. I have run for Congress three times, U.S. Senate against John McCain in ‘04, Secretary of State twice, and county recorder,” Ernest Hancock said.

He started his Declare Your Independence radio show in 2003, and it continues to air to this day. Two years later, he started the website Freedom’s Phoenix, centered around Libertarian ideologies as well as independent news coverage.

Including Ernest Hancock’s devotion for political activism, he is a faithful family man as well. He has a wife, four children, and 12 grandchildren. He also has goals of retiring in Arizona by this fall, after purchasing land there.

“…sooner or later, it always turns into a food thing,” Ernest Hancock said as a final comment. “When they want to do the hard-press manipulation, it always turns into a food thing. When it gets to food being too expensive, not available, or the supply chain is done, that is when you know you are near the end and it is time to die or fight.”

Whether someone agrees with Ernest Hancock or not, he is a man who loves his country and truly believes in his cause.  To obtain more information, visit his website or contact him via email.
