Democrat governors aren’t the only wanna-be tyrants out there. Republicans are just as capable of ignoring the Constitution when it suits them. On Monday, Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan — a Republican — issued a new COVID edit and told residents there is “no constitutional right to walk around without a mask.”
According to WBALTV:
“This situation is dire,” Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski said. “We will continue to use the full authority granted to us by Gov. Hogan’s executive orders and to us by our county charter to protect our residents.”
The MDSP is expanding its COVID-19 Compliance and Coordination Center and deploying “High Visibility Compliance Units” across the state, Hogan said. Additional troopers will be assigned in every county to work in partnership with locals to investigate any reports of violations of state law.
Beginning Wednesday, state troopers will support local authorities with compliance checks, with a focus on educating the public about existing orders and protocols, preventing super-spreading events, and assisting in enforcement actions when necessary.
Like Oregon Dictator Kate Brown, Hogan wants residents to snitch on their neighbors.
REPORT NON-COMPLIANCE: Effective immediately, the MDSP is operating a 24/7 phone line and email address to support local compliance teams in the field with questions regarding existing orders and enforcement.
The MDSP is also ramping up the COVID Prevention Hotline. Marylanders who see unlawful behavior are encouraged to report it by calling 833-979-2266 or sending an email to [email protected].
Hogan announced the move and made this statement:

Response was pretty much what you’d expect:
The federal constitution is designed to limit GOVERNMENT, not the people. The bill of rights is an afterthought to ensure that it was clear the government could not infringe on rights. And all rights NOT specifically declared were assumed to be the people’s (10th Amendment)

There is, however, a constitutional right for the American people to violently remove their government if it becomes tyrannical.

And where exactly is your constitutional right to mandate the wearing of a mask?

There’s no constitutional right to riot, but it’s no problem for Bowser. Yes, there is a constitutional right to walk around without a mask.

“There is no constitutional right to walk around without a mask.”
Wow. Can’t wait to see what the government mandates next.

The mind boggles… What’s even more unreal is that this is an alleged Republican.
