Go Ahead! Tell me again, one more time, that suspending the constitution is about saving lives

Op-ed Catherine Schmid Murphy 4-7-2020

Go ahead. Tell me one more time that suspending the Constitution now is about saving lives. To date, this year's coronavirus has killed 8916 in the USA ( yes, I know there will be more.) Cigarettes kill 480,000 per year, abortions 876,000 in 2018. Flu killed 60,000 in 2017. Now that we as a country have demonstrated we all have mush for brains,having not even the most rudimentary concept of greater than and less than, we have given the government leave to  suspend the Constitution, AT-WILL, indefinitely.

In the past 24 hours, two stories have come to my attention. References linked.

     The first is a statement by the current surgeon general who said of this years coronavirus: "And more people will die, even in the worst projections, from cigarette smoking in this country than are going to die from coronavirus this year."
      According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, "Cigarette smoking is responsible for more than 480,000 deaths per year in the United States, including more than 41,000 deaths resulting from secondhand smoke exposure. This is about one in five deaths annually, or 1,300 deaths every day."
     The second is a story about judges upholding the right to abortion as an essential service while our Constitution is suspended. 876,000 killed in 2018. 




I do not know why our Constitution has been suspended at this time. But I am absolutely certain it is not about saving lives. And I am also certain, that by our current actions, we have conveyed the message that the Constitution can be suspended, at-will, indefinitely. We will get through this years virus as we have in the past. And I have to believe that an effective Godly revival and awakening will ensue. God is in charge and God's will be done.
