    My late FIL would have said our governor barks and chases cars. He lived in a much more direct, less politically correct time.

    I read this article with disbelief. Michelle Wuhan Grisham has threatened to remove mayors from office if they do not follow her public health order. She does not have the power to do that, so the threat must be that she is going to work against their reelections. That will go over like a lead balloon. Her nagging, lecturing, and admonishing New Mexicans as if our concerns for our livelihoods are childish and unimportant next to her political ambitions has already lost her a great deal of respect among New Mexicans. An emergency does not erase the Bill of Rights. Nor does it empower governors to take away our businesses without compensation. In fact, a government official cannot take our property without just compensation. That’s in the bill of rights.

    Perhaps MWG does not understand what a governor is. A governor is a piece in a machine that controls the pace of its working. For example, a timing belt in an automobile. It must work with the other machine parts to ensure a smooth ride. When a governor goes full tyrant, it can tear the machine apart, destroying its function. To protect the machine, the owners must remove the faulty governor and replace it with one that works in harmony with other parts of the machine. This is what we need to do in New Mexico. And the sooner the better.

    The purpose of government is not to make us safe. That is our job. The purpose of government is to keep us free. Adults do not need lectures from a governor who has assumed the role of dictator, and treats her bosses as if they were her recalcitrant children.

    We need a revolution. Look to your sheriffs to protect your rights, New Mexico. And tell your county officials what you expect them to do in the face of MWG’s temperamental tyranny. Stand for your rights.
