Our country was founded on the idea that if the people don't give their consent for a government action, then that action is illegitimate.
That bedrock principle is being tested amidst the COVID-19 crisis. As Pete Hegseth said on Fox News, most Americans understand that we need to reopen our economy, and there's a movement to make it happen.
"The reality is, people know that we have to reopen. They need the income. And they want to be responsible. We know that's not a false choice to do one or the other," Pete said. "There is a reopen movement at OpentheStates.com. If everyone opens at the same time, the authorities can't shut everyone down if We the People say we're going to reopen."
