I would rather have freedom, along with its dangers, than security that comes with tyranny. (And usually, such security is about as genuine as a $9 bill.)
As I see it, there is just one Constitution that the whole nation has to abide by. States that do not abide by that Constitution need to be brought back in line, whatever it takes. (Unless, that is, they simply want out of the whole union--in that case, let them have their own constitution.)
I can think of another example: The National 55 MPH Speed Limit. The country had no constitutional right to demand that states abide by that, except during the actual emergency. Once the embargo was lifted, so was the emergency and states should have been allowed to push their speed limits right back up. (As for speed killing, not if there are fewer cars on the road because of higher gas prices.)
The coronavirus situation is the opposite. There is nowhere in our Constitution that suspends that document for a pandemic. It wasn't suspended during the Spanish Flu pandemic, the polio outbreak, or either of the major flu pandemics of the late 1950s and '60. So why do states have the right to order people to wear those stupid masks, including when they are well away from other people? Some states ordered stores to set "senior hours" for shopping--that is a business decision. Others are ordering, under jail threat, quarantine for people traveling in from other states--New York and New Jersey had enough the first time that anyone that was going to get it did already, except those who shut themselves in most thoroughly.
Also, there are too many states that are defunding police. The cities, also. Antifa is burning down cities, and will forcibly ensure Biden and Harris get into office despite the election. Seattle, Portland OR, Chicago, New York City, St Louis--the list goes on and will get longer where there are major riots on a nightly basis. Do the states care? Does Minnesota care? Does California? What about New York? Oregon? Washington State? They just let the riots go on, release any that get arrested, and then expect payment for the disaster. And we are getting Biden and Harris, like them or not, because of this. This is not like the 55 MPH speed limit!
There needs to be a balance. States need to be allowed the freedom to work within the Constitution of the nation they belong to, not against it. They also need to be forced to abide by the Constitution in the event the governor doesn't want to respect it, unless they intend to leave the Union. But, they do not need to be forced to accept something so stupid as a 55 MPH speed limit.
