First, they wanted everyone masked and stocked up on hand sanitizer, then came the toilet paper mania, and in short time states were mandating stay-at-home quarantines and “non-essential” business closures due to COVID-19. What began as a two-week quarantine, turned into weeks and months, and by May they had crashed the entire economy. Everything was blown out of proportion, including the potential death rate, sending a lightning bolt of panic through the country. With each week, more freedoms were stripped away, people’s constitutional rights were stomped on, unjustified fines and arrests were being implemented against people who couldn’t wear masks, those who attempted to open their business so they could feed their families, or those who wished to pray at church. In a matter of a few short months, the country was turned upside down and governors were abusing their authority.
