Around the nation, local authorities are doing whatever they can to help stop the spread of coronavirus, but some Americans are beginning to believe that their elected officials might be going overboard.
“Social distancing” is the only weapon that we currently have against COVID-19, and while it works spectacularly, it comes at a price. Our economy is hurting on account of the major industries that can no longer operate as per usual, and many among us believe that our freedoms are being squeezed in the process. In Michigan, this sentiment has been exacerbated by a number of rather draconian guidelines being touted by the state’s governor, and the citizens of The Wolverine State have had it.
Residents of Michigan, angry about what they see as overbearing executive orders by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, have a planned a massive protest around the state capitol on Wednesday.
The Michigan Conservative Coalition has organized “Operation Gridlock,” which will likely see protesters in their cars, honking horns, and clogging streets.
“Everyone, every citizen, every business owner needs to get out of their house, out of their chair, and get in their car, or truck, or anything that is legal to drive on taxpayer funded roads,” the group said.
Michiganders have recently flooded social media with posts regarding Whitmer’s newly enforced guidelines, particularly as they pertain to what items certain retailers are allowed to deem “essential”, particularly after items such as vegetable seeds and children’s car seats didn’t make the cut.
