Yes the uninfected are being ordered to stay at home unless it is "essential" business, with state officials arbitrarily deciding what is and is not "essential." Those same governors are demanding small businesses shutter, yet to those running those businesses and their employees, work is "essential" to feeding their families and paying their bills.
That same Governor Murphy was forced by Tucker Carlson to admit that he "Wasn’t Thinking of the Bill of Rights," when he implemented his stay-at-orders because it was "above his pay grade."
As an aside, let me remind readers that the New Jersey Governors' Oath of Office, swears to "support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of New Jersey."
"I , do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of New Jersey against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and of the Governor of the State of New Jersey; that I make this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office of in the upon which I am about to enter, so help me God."
Yet he claims the bill of rights is "above his pay grade." It could be argued that the office of Governor is above his intelligence level capabilities.
Many of the most draconian of state orders are within the most liberal of states or by the most liberal of governors.
The media and liberal politicians had a field day because "8 Republican Governors," held out on formal "stay-at-home" orders despite the fact they closed schools and "urged" people to stay at home if possible.
We now have multiple states, all run by ultra-liberal politicians, threatening to extend & expand their stay-at-home mandates and forced lockdowns.
Most Republican run states tried to make their orders be as limited as possible, while attempting to flatten the curve of the virus infections, and are busting butt to get their states back open for business. Yet liberal Democrat states are heeing and hawing and trying to keep the total control with their boots on the necks of their residents, indefinitely.
Even during a pandemic liberals are doing what they always try to do, it is simply "politics as usual" for them.
Push for more state government control over their residents.
Liberals are pushing money for illegals, abortions, and other pet projects that have nothing to do with the pandemic in their pandemic response funding bills.
Liberals push ordered closures and stay-at-home mandates rather than urging or encouraging safety measures.
Welfare, open borders, nanny-state mentality of deciding what people should and shouldn't eat or drink, the unconstitutionality of ordering people to lockdown and ordering the healthy to quarantine, all parts of the liberal agenda.
Total control that once taken from Americans will only be taken back by an all out civil war, because once liberals strip a right, or steal control, they always try to keep it and most of the time it can only be wrested away from those power-hungry tyrants at the point of a gun.
No one wants to see it come to that, but these liberal politicians have convinced themselves that Americans will sit back and take this indefinitely.
Nothing could be further from the truth. As we watch, we see more and more indications that Americans have about had it with have their rights violated and the anger is increasing exponentially.
Liberal politicians better figure out fast that if they don't reopen their states, and if they continue to stand in the way, eventually, we will walk over them to take our freedom back.
(Ohio - Local Militia protest the stay-at-home order)
Seeing the nationwide protests against the extended state forced control offers optimism that everyday Americans know if they do not fight for their constitutional rights, they may never get them back without an all out civil war.
While many of us in the Independent Media have encouraged the healthy to self-quarantine if at all possible, only going into the public when necessary and with proper safety gear, never in a million years would most of us want the state mayors and governors to mandate it or violate their residents constitutionally guaranteed rights.
