Our "leaders" in government have gone off the rails.
In a frankly shocking interview, Oregon Governor Kate Brown called on Oregonians to call the cops on their neighbors if they have more than six people attending their Thanksgiving dinner
“Do you want people calling the police on their neighbors, non-emergency lines or 911?” KGW’s Maggie Vespa asked Brown on Friday.
“Look, this is no different from what happens if there’s a party down the street and it’s keeping everyone awake,” Brown said. “What do neighbors do? They call law enforcement because it’s too noisy. This is just like that. It’s like a violation of a noise ordinance.”
“But that could be a yes,” Vespa pointed out.
Brown answered, “Yes. Yes."
Violators of Gov. Brown's draconian measures could face up to $1,250 in fines as well as jail time.
Gov. Brown's attitude is the same taken by many members of the political class in the federal government: they think they know better than We the People, and they'll impose any laws and restrictions to bring the people in line.
But We the People have never surrendered to tyrannical government, whether at the state or federal level. The people of Oregon will have a chance to deal with their governor next election, but we can do something right now about overreach at the federal level.
An Article V Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments that limit the scope and jurisdiction of the federal government. These amendments can shrink or eliminate federal bureaucracies, limit the power of all three branches of the federal government, and, most importantly, send a clear message to our political class: We the People are in control.
