South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem’s Decision To Not Give Up Liberty For A Bit Of Security Is How Every Governor Should Handle Every Alleged “Threat”

“I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery” – Thomas Jefferson

It was Benjamin Franklin that said, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”  Indeed, and yes, I already know the context it came in, but it is nevertheless appropriate to apply to much of the tyranny we see today.  That’s why when South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem defended her position not to issue stay-at-home orders during the coronavirus hoax, it was because it was unconstitutional.  She said Americans had given up “liberties for a little bit of security.”

The Independent reported:

The Republican governor was in charge of one of the seven states – which include North Dakota, Nebraska, Arkansas, Wyoming, Utah, and Iowa – to avoid ordering residents to stay home statewide as the novel virus spreads through the US. The other governors are also Republican.

When defending her decision to not lockdown the state, Ms Noem said South Dakota was not New York, so it therefore did not need similar restrictions.

But in the last week the state has found its own hotspot of coronavirus infections after a pork-processing plant, Smithfield Foods, in Sioux Falls shut down indefinitely after more than 300 employees fell ill from the virus.

“I took an oath when I was in Congress, obviously to uphold the constitution of the United States. I believe in our freedoms and liberties,” Ms Noem said in an interview with Fox News.

“What I’ve seen across the country is so many people give up their liberties for just a little bit of security. And I don’t have to do that.”

She claimed other leaders with “too much power” during a crisis could lead to “how we lose our country”.

“So I felt like I’ve had to use every single opportunity to talk about why we slow things down, we make decisions based on science and facts and make sure that we are not letting emotion grab a hold of the situation,” Ms Noem added.

While Governor Noem did address one hotspot, there were recommendations put out to the public.  They are not law nor do they have the force of law.  Recommendations are one thing.  Fining and jailing people for conducting their lives and business is quite another.

What’s interesting is that the people who have been pulling back the curtain on this entire hoax that has been perpetrated on the world, have been lying to us about what a virus is, telling us we can transmit it to other people when our own bodies produce it and they have failed to tell us the actual cause of viruses, or exosomes, being emitted by our bodies.

For instance, if you have not listened to this doctor and nurse, you really should do yourself a favor and understand how all of this works and stop being deceived by the liars in the media and government.

While one certainly can understand the temptation of the people’s representatives to “do something” when all the political pressure mounts, but this is why we have law in place that restricts them in emotionally charged moments.

Sadly, too many governors, mayors and federal bureaucrats believe they have the power to infringe on the people’s rights because they believe, wrongly so, that they are responsible for our health and safety.

I would like for them to take a lesson from Governor Noem when it comes to that and add, if they spent half as much time bringing justice against evil doers as they do infringing on the rights off the people and acting outside their delegated authority, the sovereign states would be much better off and the people would enjoy a plethora of liberty.
