After a year of abusive lockdowns, arbitrary rules, and destructive policies, Democrats at the state level continue to punish Americans. I think it’s safe to say that most Americans would rather have their liberties back than obey ridiculous measures that haven’t been proven to “slow the spread” of the Wuhan flu.
States that continue strict rules only see economic shortfalls, destroyed educations, and crippling debt. Oh, and their COVID numbers are about the same as everywhere else (almost as if the mandates do nothing). Despite this, governors keep abusing their “emergency powers” for no apparent reason.
Recently, some states have been fighting back to stripe governors of these needless powers. In one state, the Democratic governor extended a mask mandate. So, the Republican legislature shut her down.
Republican legislators in Kansas ended the state’s mask mandate Thursday, effectively blocking an executive order from Democratic Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly that would have kept it in place.
The Legislative Coordinating Council, which is group of eight leading state lawmakers, voted 5-2 along party lines to end Kelly’s mask mandate just hours after she extended it, according to The Kansas City Star…
Speaker Pro Tem Blaine Finch, who is a Republican from Ottawa, said, “The revocation of a one-size-fits-all statewide mandate does not in any way impact any local orders that are in place. The numbers don’t support a statewide mandate at this time.” [Source: Daily Wire]
It’s been a year. It’s time to move on from the COVID panic porn. Democrats will forever point to rising and falling numbers to justify un-American and un-Constitutional mandates. They are not concerned with the health and well-being of citizens. They are only getting high off the unlimited power COVID fear gives them.
It doesn’t matter to them that they’ve trampled on our First Amendment rights (among others). It doesn’t matter to them that small businesses have been utterly destroyed. Or that millions of children’s educations are derailed. Or that none of the rules they pass did anything to combat a disease that will be with us from now on.
It’s simply about power. Democrats want it and will do anything they can to keep it. Giving governors the power to just shut down society was the stupidest thing any legislature could have done. Instead of using democratic processes, like passing bills through the legislature, they let single individuals control the lives of millions.
Hmm… kind of sounds like a dictatorship, doesn’t it? You know, the very thing America is supposed to stand against?
The Kansas governor, outraged that Republicans would defy her unconstitutional demands, claimed “new COVID-19 strains” were “wreaking havoc in other states.”
You see? They will never let go of COVID as a tool to manipulate the country. It doesn’t matter if cases drop to zero—they will forever spread fear and hysteria to have their way.
Now is the time to fight back. Now is the time to reject these idiotic rules that are only for show. Because if we don’t now, they will never stop.
