Upon reading your newest executive order, I must respond by saying that while due distancing, use of face masks, and the providing of proper medical equipment and medicine has wrought the greatest good during the coronavirus crisis, your March state of emergency empowering governors and state officials to assume iron-clad power in forcing the closure of businesses, agencies and churches has wrought irreparable damage to our country.
Simply put, none of this was needed, but this unfortunately was forced on you by globalists like Dr. Fauci and Governor Newsom who are just using COVID-19 as an excuse to shut down our great nation.
Therefore, know that the rapid reopening of America and its churches is what will work the greatest good for our country right now. This is the political ventilator and shot in the arm that will quickly bring America back to life. Outside of this, nothing else will work.
Therefore, we ask that you issue an executive order of juridical nature that states in clear, unambiguous terms that, from thence, all states, counties, and cities of America are hereby forbidden to force the closure of any businesses, parks, agencies, or churches.
It's a quick and easy fix, so please implement this lest we lock into a permanent form of slavery, because we are now witnessing the prelude to a world goverment that restricts the freedoms of the people. Act now while we still have life in us, and you will see this country spring back to to life, which in turn will be a powerful campaign plug to help ensure your victory in November.
Read the US Constitution, Martin. The States don't need the permission of the President or the Federal Government to regulate and administer essential services in their own jurisdiction.
@JD your comments, while commonly accepted among Americanists, reflect a simplistic understanding of what the Constitution actually is in 2020. Just as basic words, such as "Democracy" today does not mean the same thing as the Greeks who invented the word 5000+ years ago. Just as the word "Republic" did not mean the same before and after Julius Caesar.
The president didn't empower governors of states. In the US federal system, it is state governments that possess the plenitude of police power, except by delegation to Congress or the President, respectively. The 10th Amendment was a reminder of that.
All "amendments" are subject to interpretation. The Constitution itself is subject to different interpretations. It's just a piece of paper that is a "start-off" and from there, the State carries a life of its own.
The reason Catholics are allowed, technically, to accept this "Constitution" is because it can be interpreted in a Catholic way. One of out of a million possible interpretations!!! If you want a more perfect document, it should say: " Catholic moral Teachings are to be the overriding determinant of the laws and policies of the Federal and State governments. Any deviation must subject the violator to civil and criminal penalties".
Great letter thank you Mr Martin
As a great (though also seriously flawed personally) radio guy Dennis Prager says:
The Chinese Flu destroys lives. However, the Democrats/Socialists destroy societies!
Prager is a gatekeeper for approved conservative points of view.
Re: JD - Yes, but if states overstep their bounds by abuse of power the president through an executive order can prohibit this abuse of power. While each state can enact its own laws, they must be in line with the central government. For example, if Governor Newsom decides to give California to Mexico (as he wants to do), he cannot do this. Accordingly, he cannot force churches to close down under any condition, since Separation of Church and State prevents the state from interfering with the Church. While a governor can advise the Church on a given issue, the Church has the last word.
