Dear Governor Edwards,
America was founded upon the principle that all people are endowed with certain Inherent and Inalienable Rights. The people of Louisiana have acted responsibly; we have acted in love and regard for our people, and our declining COVID infection rate reflects that fact. Now it is time to let the people of Louisiana do what they do best; get back to work.
The current Louisiana Order related to the COVID-19 Emergency establishes restrictions upon the people in direct contradiction of our fundamental Rights and the Supreme Law of this State. The limit upon our assembly, the exercise of our freedom of religion, our right to assemble for a redress of our grievances are all being infringed. Our Right to the ownership, control, and enjoyment of our property is not only being violated without due process and just compensation, but in many cases these Rights may be forever lost.
Every business is essential when a family’s provisions are dependent upon that income. Current statistics show us that divorce, child abuse, alcohol abuse and depression are on the rise because of our inability to legally work and provide for our needs. The people of Louisiana are responsible and honorable people. We do not want handouts, and it’s time to start lifting the restrictions upon our businesses so the people of Louisiana can get back to healthy and productive lives.
It is time to honor our most sacred principles of government; it is the duty of the United States to secure the Rights of the people, not infringe upon them. We are fully capable of operating our businesses while voluntarily engaging in the practices that will help keep our neighbors healthy.
It is time to put Louisiana BACK TO WORK.
