Writes Richard Salsman in The Capitalism Standard on “Pandemic = DEM Panic” (21 April 2020):

New Jersey autocratic Governor Phil Murphy was asked recently by Tucker Carlson what possible alternative authority warranted his policies, which brazenly violate the Constitution’s Bill of Rights. While grinning and chuckling, Murphy said “I wasn’t thinking of the Bill of Rights when we did this. That’s above my pay grade.” In fact, the Bill of Rights includes a mere ten amendments, and ten lies above Murphy’s IQ. Every governor – indeed, every elected official in America – takes office with a solemn oath to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of United States,” as amended, and both the supremacy clause and 14th Amendment of that charter prohibit any provision of any state constitution or policy to contradict, defy, or flout the Constitution in any way, at any time, under any circumstances.

America’s autocratic governors ought to be summarily recalled, impeached, and if necessary jailed for abusing power. Some Americans in some states are beginning to assemble and protest autocratic policies, but it may be far too little, too late.
