On Wednesday, Michigan residents banded together to protest against Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s wildly inconsistent stay at home orders that she’s been putting in place for the lockdown. Thousands of people gathered in this “drive-by” protest because they’re sick of Gov. Whitmer’s stupidity.
Keep in mind it was Whitmer who banned the use of hydroxychloroquine for people in Michigan who may benefit from using the treatment. This is against doctors even. The governor of a state has no business telling a doctor how to do his or her job.
Now a number of sheriffs in Michigan have vowed to defy the governors orders in the case of the measures that they say overstep her authority. Sheriffs Mike Borkovich, Ted Schendel, Ken Falk, and Kim Cole announced their decision Wednesday, telling the public that they take their oath to the U.S. Constitution seriously and consider themselves the “last line of defense in protecting your civil liberties.”
“We write today to inform the public for our respective counties of our opposition to some of Governor Whitmer’s executive orders,” the press release reads, as reported by Michigan Live.
“While we understand her desire to protect the public, we question some restrictions that she has imposed as overstepping her executive authority,” the sheriffs continued. “She has created a vague framework of emergency laws that only confuse Michigan citizens.”
Instead, the sheriffs “will deal with every case as an individual situation and apply common sense.”
As one person put it, “Quarantine is when you restrict movement of sick people. Tyranny is when you restrict the movement of healthy people.”
He added, “Every person has learned a harsh lesson about social distancing. We don’t need a nanny state to tell people how to be careful.”
And it’s very apparent that they have let this get out of control in other states as well. Mississippi was fining people for going to church and literally had to be told by the Department of Justice that they can’t do that!
This is why we fight for our freedoms because they have no problem taking them away.
