EVEN THE ATLANTIC IS NOTICING: The ‘Just Stay Home’ Message Will Backfire: We need less extreme and more nuanced recommendations for navigating life during the pandemic. Just stay home for a couple of weeks, sure. For endless months, no.
And a comment from the Instapundit:
When Blue states go broke and can’t operate because of self-induced economic collapse, Trump can invoke the Insurrection Act and replace their governments. A president can invoke the Act when a pandemic “so hinders the execution of the laws of a State or possession, as applicable, and of the United States within that State or possession, that any part or class of its people is deprived of a right, privilege, immunity, or protection named in the Constitution and secured by law, and the constituted authorities of that State or possession are unable, fail, or refuse to protect that right, privilege, or immunity, or to give that protection.”
How many states already qualify?
