First, they told us the anti-lockdown protests would cause more coronavirus deaths.
Then, they backtracked, saying the COVID-19 risk wasn't high enough to justify shutting down Black Lives Matter protests.
Now, they've backtracked again.
According to a recent report by Fox News, some of the same politicians who encouraged BLM protests that attracted thousands of people are condemning the upcoming rallies for President Trump because (you guessed it!) the rallies will spread coronavirus.
On Monday, U.S. Rep. Val Demings, D-Fla., told her Twitter followers she had joined a "Healing and Hope" rally "to speak with our community as America grieves."
By Thursday, Demings -- considered a possible running mate for Joe Biden -- had suddenly changed her tune on mass gatherings.
"The president’s plan to hold mass rallies in Florida and elsewhere as we experience a resurgence in COVID cases is irresponsible and selfish," Demings remarked, without any reference to her previous comments.
Our politicians don't care about public health. They care about scoring political points, pursuing their personal agendas, and rallying their bases.
It's time to return decision-making power to We the People, and we can do it with the one-two punch of Open the States and Convention of States.
First, we need to get our economy back on track by opening our communities. Patriots across the country have been working tirelessly on the reopen movement, and we've seen states slowly begin to open back up.
Then, in the long-term, we must limit the power and jurisdiction of our federal officials with an Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States can propose constitutional amendments the shrink the federal government and return that power to the American people.
Americans have had enough of power-hungry politicians who don't care about them. They're ready for a change, and they can get it by pursuing freedom and self-governance with a Convention of States.
