Don’t Forget to Vote!

Another day, another set of draconian, job-killing, liberty-stealing lockdowns from Governor Gretchen Whitmer. Late Wednesday she issued another confusing executive order, closing bars and dramatically restricting social gatherings in rural northern Michigan – while telling the casinos in Detroit they’re allowed to re-open.
You can’t make this stuff up – but she seems to be.

Next week there’s an important step you can take to do something about it.
This coming Tuesday, August 4 is Election Day!
The choices we make in this year’s primary races for state House and for local candidates up and down the ballot could make all the difference in determining what kind of legislature we have come 2021 – and we’re not just talking about political parties.
Primary races are opportunities for voters to decide what kind of candidates they want representing their party for years to come.
It’s a chance to choose between big-government, establishment candidates and pro-liberty, small-government conservatives. It’s a chance to choose between candidates who live and breath the fight for the unborn and those who only pay it lip service. It’s a chance to pick between candidates who meekly support endless lockdowns and candidates who will fight for your constitutional rights.
If you haven’t already cast an absentee ballot, carve out some time on your calendar Tuesday and be sure to get out and vote! (If you’re curious, by the way, who the Michigan Freedom Network supports in state House races next week, you can check out our endorsement list here.)

Crain’s Detroit Business: Whitmer OK’s Detroit casinos to reopen, reimposes some COVID-19 limits Up North
"Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed executive orders Wednesday that allow Detroit's three casinos to reopen next week at 15 percent capacity, while clamping down again on northern Michigan bars and indoor venues."
"To date, Whitmer has not offered any specific criteria on what would cause her to end state of emergency she declared. Whitmer’s executive orders make mention of a vaccine."
"A new national survey from the Cato Institute found that 62% of individuals say they self-censor because they are concerned others may find their views offensive. 
"This is a bipartisan concern, but it is most pronounced among conservatives. Among Republicans, 77% say they are afraid to share at least some of their political opinions. That number falls to 52% of Democrats.
"Strong liberals are the only group with a majority (58%) that said they disagreed the political climate prevents them from saying what they believe."
