LETTER: Letter to Legislature to call Special Session and end Unconstitutional Emergency Shutdown

Local, State, & Federal Representatives –

As involved parents and concerned citizens we implore you to change the narrative in Utah. We are happy to homeschool our 7 (year old) because of the fear at today’s schools (not to mention the ongoing federal requirements and socialist indoctrination that has been occurring for years), but the shutdowns have forced neighborhoods to move indoors. As an only child our daughter is already showing signs of depression and anxiety because most of her friends are being forced to stay away from each other. And it has been proven by multiple sources that kids have almost no chance of getting or transmitting CV.

Please stop the fear and spread freedom instead.

I am appalled you have not stepped up for your constituents–the people of Utah–and called a Special Session to END the State of Emergency. Herbert is going to continue his power grab for more Federal money if YOU do not do something. We do not want more Federal money and more Federal strings attached to our state. I don’t understand how the supposedly conservative House continues to support the liberal-based shutdowns. Follow the lead of South Dakota and keep our state open. Follow the US Constitution and work for the people, not for access into Herbert’s Good Ole Boys Club ($2,500/plate parties this summer where NO social distancing occurred and where masks were discarded like a rag… Are you kidding me?).

Utah is not happy with how Herbert/Cox are handling CV restrictions for a virus with a Utah 0.00033% fatality rate. Every year around 1% of the population already dies without any help from lockdown-induced depression suicides, mask-induced infections, or Corona. Yes, every death is tragic–but eliminating a virus is impossible. We must learn to live with it instead. We cannot keep going down the path we are on; it leads only to more deaths than we have seen before and our economy tanking.

YOU have the power to stop Herbert’s unconstitutional extensions of the State of Emergency thru Utah Constitution Code Title 53 Chapter 2a Part 2 Section “State of Emergency” https://le.utah.gov/xcode/Title53/Chapter2a/53-2a-S206.html.

PLEASE come together in a Special Session (and SOON!) to vote NO on the current emergency, and to stop any future ones from being called. I will not vote for any legislators who do not support ending the emergency shutdowns. There are bigger players at war with the people of America. The sooner you step up and follow the principles of Freedom and Morality (it is IMMORAL to require masks of everyone, especially our kids), then the sooner we can unabashedly use our God-given Liberties to provide for our families and save small businesses.

God Bless America,

Ashley S. Baker, MPC

    Always fun to be lectured about freedom and the constitution by people that clearly haven’t read the thing.

    • Free Bird September 26, 2020 at 10:50 am Reply

      Now is the time to put up or shut up. How do you know she hasn’t read the Constitution?

      • Zach September 26, 2020 at 7:07 pm Reply

        Because if she had read it and studied over two centuries of Supreme Court precedent, Free Bird, she’d know about reserve powers, powers granted to states but denied the federal government. States are at the apex of their powers during public health crises. It’s why when you have HIV the health department tracks your partners, why restaurants have inspections, and why the governor can order businesses to close in the middle of a devastating pandemic. You right wingers seem to think the constitution is basically a “do whatever I want” card. It’s not. It’s a compact between states and the federal government, between the people and the government. You have rights, but the government has power to keep society functioning, and you have obligations to your fellow citizens. You aren’t an island. And please, don’t respond with your usual “You libtards need to stop watching CNN.” Make a coherent argument for why I’m wrong or educate yourself.

          Actually, 99% of people 69 and younger survive the so called pandemic. Check the CDC report, it is written in plain black and white. In my own opinion, this so called pandemic is a liberal dream, with absolutely no evidence there is even a pandemic. We have to control the people with bs… The so called contact tracers are right out of Hitlers gestapo and SS playbook.
          I have many friends in the health business, and they all tell me they treat very few people for the so called pandemic, but they treat many people for attempted suicide, and some are successful. There have been many more people die of depression and suicide then this liberal pandemic here in Cache Valley.
          I have noticed the health department was out in full force on the internet telling everyone they are the ones that know everything about the so called pandemic, I have also noticed since the evidence has been piling up, they are no where to be found, imagine that?

          • Zach September 27, 2020 at 10:36 pm

            You offer no evidence, no explanation, you shift the discussion from the merits of constitutional law to spouting nonsense about a pandemic that has overwhelmed hospitals and killed over 200,000 Americans and compare a health department to Hitler for the crime of protecting you from illness. You are historically illiterate, willfully blind, and a conspiracy monger. You are not worth my time. I pray your ignorance and blasé attitude towards basic facts won’t get you or your family killed. I pray you will learn decency and truth. I fear you will not.

          Seems how I can’t post to your latest comment, I will post it here. If she read it, it doesn’t mean she studied the Supreme Court, nor does she claimed that she did. You said “Always fun to be lectured about freedom and the constitution by people that clearly haven’t read the thing.” Now prove that she didn’t read it, like I asked at the beginning before you started on your liberal rant.
          There is no hospital in Utah that is overwhelmed, as a matter of fact they have lost money because they hadn’t been allowed to do elective surgery. First reports or liberal models said there was going to be 2.2 million US deaths from this so called pandemic. That never happened, as a matter of fact, many of those 205,000 are questionable about the real cause of death. The only States with massive deaths are of course run by liberals, like NY, CA, New Jersey, lead the pack. Seems South Dakota must know something no other States don’t know.

        To start with, she seems not to have read the Preamble, you know, the part about promoting the general welfare.

    Wow! Do people like you really exist outside of Fox news comments sections? God didn’t give you anything. There is no god. Trying to keep people alive and healthy isn’t immoral. Liberals are generally more intelligent and better educated than conservatives – which probably explains your viewpoints. perhaps you need to find a fact-based source for your “thinking” and start being realistic about life during a pandemic. Fact-based information can’t give you a triple-digit IQ, but it may help stop you and people like you from endangering the rest of the population.

    • Free Bird September 26, 2020 at 10:56 am Reply

      Actually, I tend to disagree with your non factional diatribe. Surely you have facts (you know those old pesky things) to back up that liberal moron rant you just posted.

      • eshner September 26, 2020 at 7:11 pm Reply

        Sorry, I have never done a liberal moron rant. I have never even met a liberal moron. I am good with facts, though. Shall I start by explaining to you and “Ashley” what facts are, and how it differs from fiction and delusion?

        • Free Bird September 28, 2020 at 6:35 pm Reply

          Yeah, go ahead…. You say you are good with facts, well, where are these facts?

    • Susan September 26, 2020 at 10:13 pm Reply

      You say there is no God. Are you kidding me? That is part of the problem in the world today, people who don’t believe in a God. Get real!

  • AH September 26, 2020 at 12:34 am Reply

    Wow! Reading that was a whole minute of my life I’ll never get back ? If only this author were a minority in our society, but alas, COVID has produced many mouthy know-it-all’s ??‍♀️

    I agree with this article. There is more than sufficient data proving lock downs do little to nothing to stop the spread, in fact they cause many more long term issues in other areas, particularly around alcohol abuse and domestic violence. If you choose to mask up, isolate or whatever you believe is right for you, do so. I’ll exercise my freedom of choice as well.

    • Yorgus September 26, 2020 at 9:42 pm Reply

      You have the freedom to choose to infect other people, and potentially kill them?

    “It is a miserable story… We seek a principal through which to despise each other. We’ve created a world in order to slander and bespatter this world.. in reality, we reach every time for nothingness and construe nothingness as God, as “truth”, and in and case, as judge and condemner of this state of being.”-F.N.
    It is impossible for a stone to be habituated in to moving uphill …perception has become adulterated by a general tendency for people to rely on societal construct as a fundamental reality.. Just pissed off cause we’re mad.. we have way more in common as humans and the differences are purely 2 dimensional…

    This is filled with so much ignorance it’s impossible to respond to each individual instance but I appreciate the chuckle this line gave me :
    “socialist indoctrination that has been occurring for years”
