  1. I understand this was all a political effort to try to make Trump look bad but did tens of millions of poor and middle class Americans REALLY have to lose their jobs?

  2. From the North Carolina State Constitution:
    ARTICLE I
    DECLARATION OF RIGHTS

    That the great, general, and essential principles of liberty and free government may be recognized and established, and that the relations of this State to the Union and government of the United States and those of the people of this State to the rest of the American people may be defined and affirmed, we do declare that:

    Section 1. The equality and rights of persons.
    We hold it to be self-evident that all persons are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, the enjoyment of the fruits of their own labor, and the pursuit of happiness.

    Sec. 2. Sovereignty of the people.
    All political power is vested in and derived from the people; all government of right originates from the people, is founded upon their will only, and is instituted solely for the good of the whole.

    Sec. 3. Internal government of the State.
    The people of this State have the inherent, sole, and exclusive right of regulating the internal government and police thereof, and of altering or abolishing their Constitution and form of government whenever it may be necessary to their safety and happiness; but every such right shall be exercised in pursuance of law and consistently with the Constitution of the United States.

    Sec. 4. Secession prohibited.
    This State shall ever remain a member of the American Union; the people thereof are part of the American nation; there is no right on the part of this State to secede; and all attempts, from whatever source or upon whatever pretext, to dissolve this Union or to sever this Nation, shall be resisted with the whole power of the State.

    Sec. 5. Allegiance to the United States.
    Every citizen of this State owes paramount allegiance to the Constitution and government of the United States, and no law or ordinance of the State in contravention or subversion thereof can have any binding force.

    Sec. 6. Separation of powers.
    The legislative, executive, and supreme judicial powers of the State government shall be forever separate and distinct from each other.

    Sec. 7. Suspending laws.
    All power of suspending laws or the execution of laws by any authority, without the consent of the representatives of the people, is injurious to their rights and shall not be exercised.

    Sec. 8. Representation and taxation.
    The people of this State shall not be taxed or made subject to the payment of any impost or duty without the consent of themselves or their representatives in the General Assembly, freely given.

    Sec. 9. Frequent elections.
    For redress of grievances and for amending and strengthening the laws, elections shall be often held.

    Sec. 10. Free elections.
    All elections shall be free.

    Sec. 11. Property qualifications.
    As political rights and privileges are not dependent upon or modified by property, no property qualification shall affect the right to vote or hold office.

    Sec. 12. Right of assembly and petition.
    The people have a right to assemble together to consult for their common good, to instruct their representatives, and to apply to the General Assembly for redress of grievances; but secret political societies are dangerous to the liberties of a free people and shall not be tolerated.

    Sec. 13. Religious liberty.
    All persons have a natural and inalienable right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences, and no human authority shall, in any case whatever, control or interfere with the rights of conscience.

    Sec. 14. Freedom of speech and press.
    Freedom of speech and of the press are two of the great bulwarks of liberty and therefore shall never be restrained, but every person shall be held responsible for their abuse.

    Sec. 15. Education.
    The people have a right to the privilege of education, and it is the duty of the State to guard and maintain that right.

    Sec. 16. Ex post facto laws.
    Retrospective laws, punishing acts committed before the existence of such laws and by them only declared criminal, are oppressive, unjust, and incompatible with liberty, and therefore no ex post facto law shall be enacted. No law taxing retrospectively sales, purchases, or other acts previously done shall be enacted.

  3. So with one order they can prevent churches from meeting together and religious groups? Somethings going on here. This is no virus scare. Call me crazy but somebody is up to something.
