Trump's federal act doesn't give governors special powers (as far as I know) and governors are free to enact their own state-of-emergency actions on their own, which they have done independently of the federal government.
1) So, what gives them the right to do these things?And2) what would keep these governors from keeping businesses closed and require masks permanently?
When the federal government goes full-on Democrat, the federal taxpayers will bail out the bad financial policies of the Democrat-run states. That's why it's so important to get Kamala in there — for the bailouts.

IL is currently looking for a constitutional amendment to allow the legislature to create a progressive tax instead of a flat tax like we have now. I can live with 4.9% or whatever it currently is, but our tax structure is going to look more like CA if passed with super high taxes on producers. I've said it in other threads, if your progressively taxed our votes should be counted progressively. The more you pay in taxes the more your vote is worth, with a cap of course. Base it on the figures paid. $5 is 1 vote, $50 is 2, $500 is 3 and so on and so...
I'm not so sure that's the right idea...progressive voting. Hasn't money fucked a ton of shit up politically? Aren't the rich in charge already?
