It has been over a week since the Wisconsin Supreme Court heard arguments challenging the constitutionality of Governor Evers’ orders to micromanage our lives, strip our civil rights, and suspend representative government in response to the Coronavirus. Their lethargy is embarrassing and unconscionable. People are losing their jobs, businesses, incomes, savings… governments are on their way to bankruptcy right behind thousands of Wisconsin businesses… and the black robes sit without acting.
Today is the 61st day since Governor Evers issued the first order in accordance with emergency statutes and that authority has expired. While I consider the statutory authority for the original order to be unconstitutionally broad and capricious, the extension order is based on a statute that is unconstitutional on its face. We do not grant unending and unrestrained authority to a cabinet secretary. I do not consent.
Therefore, I consider Wisconsin’s lock down to be null and void as of today. The fact that a tyrant in Madison may issue orders, that does not mean that the orders carry any legal authority. I’m going to go about my life as a free citizen of the United States. I will take reasonable precautions in accordance with medical guidelines, but I will live my life.
