Charlotte, NC — Now that the 2020 elections are behind us, Governors across the country have decided to crack down on their states amid the coronavirus pandemic. In what seems like a repeat from earlier in the year, Democrat Governors have decided that the citizens of their states are unable to make decisions without the government intervening. It is exactly what many conservative pundits were saying would happen for months.
Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) announced a statewide two-week “freeze” on Friday. Gatherings are now limited to a max of six people from two households. Businesses are forced closed and mandates were issued to have workers work from home. The measures take effect next week to shutter homes for the Thanksgiving holiday.
New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) announced an order closing all non-essential statewide activities. Again, citizens urged to remain at home except for absolute necessities. This order will also keep people at home through the holiday.
North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper (D) announced measures this week that would turn his state back to more restrictive measures. While he allowed some businesses to remain open, he restricted indoor gatherings to 10 people again. He noted that being indoors and with the holiday approaching helped drive his decision.
Members of Biden’s coronavirus task force have advocated already for a national shut down. They claim that 4-6 weeks would allow the nation to get a handle on the virus. It seems the Democrats and mainstream media are falling in line.
ABC News shared a story on Saturday that Joe Biden is facing a tough decision. They claim he must face tough decision of whether to support the movement to enforce a national shutdown.
First of all, Biden does not face a decision that will affect the nation at this point. Biden has only won as a declaration of the mainstream media. Sure, he very well may win the election but there are pending legal cases at this point.
If Biden were to win, I doubt there is much of a decision to be made for him. He has openly supported a national mask mandate, only backing off that decision when he learned it was unconstitutional. He has previously said he would support a national shutdown if it was recommended.
So while the mainstream media wants to make this about Joe Biden, it really isn’t. It’s about these Governors who have decided that they are going to force their will on their citizens.
It is about these Governors, who want to support the progressive agenda, by telling you what you can and cannot do for Thanksgiving. They are of the belief that they are from the government and that they know best.
The warning signs for these actions have been all around since well before the election. Governors had every intention of cracking down on citizens once the election was over. Can you image What it would have been had they won this big blue wave that they believed in?
