I had heard rumors of these restrictions in California, but I hadn't been certain about them. From what Ben Shapiro is saying, the rumors are true. COVID-19 is a serious disease, but the public policy response has been a hoax and a scam. The people of the United States are being tested to show whether we are still worthy to live in a free country. To the extent that people still support politicians like Newsom, we are failing. Once upon a time, maybe we could give powers to the executive branches of our state and federal government and allow them to make rules. That power needs to be removed. Every regulation should now be established only by the vote of a legislature. If we continue to elect the legislators who would vote for these laws, we are not worthy to live in a free country.
