Will it Take Courage to Put North Carolina Back to Work?
It certainly took little political courage and forethought to shut it down.
As politicians nearly break their collective arms continuing to pat themselves on their own backs for "having the courage to not ignore the science" to enforce Draconian measures to "flatten the curve" to control the Coronavirus, I have to wonder at what point will they discover that same courage to allow all Americans, in stages, to go back to work.
The egregious Shelter in Place, without any consideration to the damage imposed, by so many Authoritarian governors is a crude unconstitutional tool that took little courage to impose, save the total sophistry of these Authoritarians to stand with the conventional science of many medical experts, most whom know very little about the U.S. Constitution.
I am not in total knowledge of what would have a been better plan to deal with this pandemic was handled in NC; however, I am well assured I would have developed a far better plan than our Democratic Socialist governor Roy Cooper, and I would have done it by adhering to the Constitution to the greatest extent possible.
Regarding all of this ham handed Authoritarian governing by the NC governor, my overarching question has been and still is: Where do the Republican legislators, in control in Raleigh, stand on all of this; where is their courage?
Their acquiescence to Governor Cooper to forgo any oversight regarding their general assembly crafted Emergency Powers statute speaks volumes about their so-called political courage.
