Covid-19, U.S. Constitution

Description

Our Constitution has been devastatingly corrupted from its original design and vision amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Governors usurped authority in the name of crisis mitigation. Our unalienable rights have been macerated and pulverized by droves of executive orders, each delivering a calamitous blow to the integrity of the American republican framework. Socialized medicine is on the horizon as our compliance is coerced. Conventional civil disobedience has been regulatorily revoked. We have succumbed to the decrees of depraved men who maintain that education, religious expression, and pursuits of happiness can be invalidated by whatever transgressions the state deems necessary. For the first time since our nation’s inception and infancy, we are indisputably and dangerously vulnerable politically, economically, socially, and constitutionally with the risk of losing our republic as we know it in the modern day. We have failed in our task to be interpreters of the law and of science as we unsuspectingly surrender to and rabidly consume every mandate, health provision, restriction of business, denial of education, and prohibition of religious expression. The authors of our Constitution had unparalleled foresight. We must ask ourselves how great republics like our own fall to the whims of depraved, broken men and women. Our nation was built with checks and balances and separations of powers. However, within this crisis, we have now legitimized and endorsed exceptions to these limitations to be invoked by any executive that deems a crisis severe enough to justify oppression of civil liberties. These leaders are woefully misinformed, as these fundamental and unalienable rights do not come from man. They come from God. The preponderance of the evidence is no longer a worthy rumination in the minds of our leaders.

The Constitution, COVID-19, and Civil Disobedience: Federalism in Flames and the Slippery Slope to Socialism
