    The administration is trying to respect your freedoms with constitutional suggestions.
    Anybody using snitch tactics will be viewed with extreme suspicion.
    If you have a concern bring it directly to the attention of your neighbor with respectful words. Call them up and use poise such as our current vp has shown.
    Peace

    Hey, If you want to help then demand the end of the red tape that prevents survivors from giving their blood with antibodies to currently sick patients.
    If you can't do that then step aside and disappear.

    Give it away give it away give it away now. How would you maintain freedom and privacy before, during, and after this national emergency?
    In the United States we already have good founding principals that happened to be the law.

    I honestly do not think there is any threat to our founding principles of privacy and freedom before and after this health emergencey.

    Unless you live "off the grid" and do not interact with anyone who is not a family member then you live in a community.

    Can we both agree that nobody has the freedom to threaten anybody else?

    So by restricting the movement of individuals during this health emergency the state is protecting the freedoms and privacy of the greatest number of societal members?

    With all the data that's being gathered about the current spread and who is at the greatest risk of mortality, I agree that those individuals should self quarantine.
    Accurate testing and masks with distancing to make it end. Ultimately having antibodies created from some exposure gets you to where you need to be.

    One model they are using to guide policy decisions only recommends in-home isolation for confirmed cases (non-hospitalized), and quarantine for their households. It is recommended for the general population only to minimize contact outside of the home by 75%, which is what the 6 foot rule is meant to do. The entire point is to prevent an unmanageable surge in burden on healthcare resources. Quarantine is for people who are sick or are known to have been exposed to someone who is, it is not meant for the whole population!

    The fact that this "stay home stay safe" idea got started, spread and has been accepted as absolute truth so quickly is one of the scariest things about this situation. If enough people believe an idea, regardless of how wrong it is, that idea begins to carry the weight of enforceability. This shows that people can literally be imprisoned by lies.

    The reason this phenomena occurs is through the appeal to the masses fallacy. People assume that if an idea has been accepted by so many others, that someone, or many someones, have challenged the idea, and it has withstood those challenges. That makes them feel comfortable not challenging it themselves.

    With the technology we have today, and how quickly ideas can spread, it is more important than ever for contrarians to challenge the thinking of the mob.

    The Governor may have closed the beach parking areas but every ,sunny day the masses head to the seashore. They park every where legal or not. The local cops move them along, but 20 mins or less more show up. Soon the police will be running out of their ticket supplies.
    I suppose the best thing to do is hire a couple of hundred tow trucks and start a parade of towed vehicles. Then all those fine people will have to walk to the impound lot .

    Welcome to the tRump conspiracy theorist political movement. Where barely functioning idiots believe a television conartist who has lied to them tens of thousands of times over highly educated experts with decades of experience.
