It should continue until there is a vaccine.
So your position is that the Constitution doesn't apply during a pandemic.

Just curious what other special circumstances you believe call for temporarily suspending the constitution?
Our leaders need to have the freedom to make tough decisions during a pandemic. W used the same tactic to justify the Patriot Act, but this is wrong because this is a Democrat doing it.

It's justified. Literally everything she had done now for the past 5 and a half months was all unconstitutional. ALL OF IT.

You said Whitmer's executive orders (now found unconstitutional) should continue for months.

Vs. the soon to be implemented Florida model? As a matter of principal yes they should given the choices. Expecting people to do the right thing is politician for “we don’t care”... people need some checks on their behavior... without them nobody will be following any guidance whatsoever..

I think the most amazing thing here is that you think she’ll have a big loss at the polls in 2 years. Republicans are a minority in this state. That means you will need some independents and Democrats on the band wagon. Good luck.

You have GOT to step away from the screen glare(tm) of your computer or phone or tablet and start talking to real live people. So many of your postings seem to indicate you are a recluse. You say you're breaking in on the railroad. Take note of the things that the people you're pissed off on here are telling you. Ask the folks you'll be working with what do they think.

The smartest thing the Democrats could do is get another candidate in 2 years. Ask people. I keep telling you this. Start talking to friends and family and co-workers. What the TV and social media is telling you is not how the majority of folks feel.

I would maintain that you don’t know what you are talking about and survey people outside of Westland or wherever you are. Head up to livonia or Oakland county or Washtenaw county... the Republicans are a small but vocal group.

So you have asked people in these places if they support Whitmer's actions?

lol because they should.

we would definitely be better off in the long-term. All we need to do is look at our juvenile president as a model of how reckless some people are about this disease. I don't recall commenting on the constitutionality of it, it would be a moot point to do so. but the policy should remain and would be best for the state. I really don't get what's so hard to understand about that.

I get the sense that you're trying to put words in my mouth because you don't like my opinion on the matter. That's kinda childish itself if that's the case.
