The response of some mayors and governors to the coronavirus pandemic in recent days has made it clear they think they have unlimited and arbitrary power over their fellow citizens, that they can order them to do or not do just about anything under the guise of protecting public health. We’ve now witnessed local and state governments issue decrees about what people can and cannot buy in stores, etc. That these officials need to be reminded of the Constitution, and in some cases restrained by federal judges, bodes very ill for America. We need leaders who don’t just care about protecting us from the pandemic, but also care about preserving liberty.
