I can't imagine having to be a conservative living in a hardcore Democratic-controlled state like New York or California.
California is still mostly locked down with the exception of what just now entering Phase Two of their reopening and with whatever rulings that judges have made against Governor Gavin Newsom's dictatorship.
Some Californians have wised up and taken a play out of the Democrat playbook by setting up their own sanctuary city of sorts.
The town of Atwater has decided they will no longer be locked down and the residents have decided to open up regardless of what Governor Newsom wants.
The City Council heard from a parade of business owners, pastors and residents on Friday who described pandemic-related hardships. Many insisted they could be responsible and keep the Merced County community safe by following safe practices like wearing face masks and keeping social distance.
A tearful Donald Covington, president of the Old Town Atwater Association, said businesses need to get up and running. “People are starving. Two family members have two small businesses, with small children and no income,” he added. “We need to do this today.”
“If they don’t open up, they’re going to be in a really bad state, and we’re going to have bankruptcies and foreclosures and we’re just going to have families that are decimated financially,” said Chamber of Commerce President Don Borgwardt, who is also a local pastor and made a plea for people to be allowed back inside houses of worship.
“It’s time to do the right thing and listen to the people who put us here,” Mayor Paul Creighton said. “We want you guys to survive and thrive. It’s really critical that the electeds in this country and especially this state start listening to you.”
There's no reason why states shouldn't be opening up. People need to work and earn a living and they need to put food on the table. But guess what, if people aren't working to make that food there won't be any to eat.
This shutdown is going to have lasting effects for many years to come. Let's play it safe, exercise caution, and be smart about everything. But there is no reason that this sickness that isn't affecting most of the population should continue to cripple our economy and lives.
