Our elected officials continue to fail on the most important part of their jobs.
Is the oath of office even worth administering?
One must wonder when across the country, governors are using presumed powers of emergency to openly violate several sections of the bill of rights with only an “OMG!” from the leadership in the legislature to date. No actions to rescind her emergency powers are on the table, nor are there any ’emergency sessions’ of the legislature scheduled to rectify this mistake.
Government doesn’t exist to protect us from ourselves, though many seem to accept this fact. It doesn’t exist to tell our business owners how to sell their products, though so many roll over and allow it to happen, and it surely doesn’t exist to tell us how we can worship or assemble.
In fact according to the constitution and the item that seemed of greatest importance to the bill of rights when crafted, was that included in the 1st amendment! The freedom to assemble, gather, and bring our complaints through process is sacrosanct!
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Could we imagine what the media/press would do, if told they could not report any more?
