Agenda?

my secret plan to rule the world book

Something you might wanna check in your state, especially if your state is being slow on opening up the state because of the pandemic.

As you know, the governor here has an alternative agenda rather than just the health and safety of the citizens of the state.

Unfortunately, what we as the citizens have learned is that the governor and the Secretary of Health have almost unlimited power when it comes to a public health crisis. There is no review by the state legislature on the governor’s powers and there is no way to slow down an abuse of power, if one were to occur (which many believe may be currently occurring).

I also just learned that the Secretary of Health is not an elected official. The secretary is appointed by the governor. Looking at the credentials of the current secretary, it appears he has all the qualifications to make him acceptable for the job. But as an appointee, that also means that undo pressure could be applied.

I am not saying the Secretary of Health has an agenda, but the governor does have one. With literally very few checks and balances of power on the governor in these types of situations, it certainly bears additional scrutiny.

Could the secretary have an agenda? It’s possible. Or maybe not. But, having someone with so much power, along with the governor and not be an elected official, that bears a closer look too.

Do you know how your government is set up?

    It mirrors the Feds. There are a set number of elected people and the rest are hangers-on…unelected bureaucrats that make policy that affect the rest of us. We can vote out the elected ones. The appointees are like cockroaches. No matter who is elected, they are still there.

      I just goes to show that government should always be small. The bigger it gets, the more issues there are. Then it begins to feed itself, getting bigger and causing more issues. Terrible cycle.

        Then, ultimately, a crash of some sort…either internally or externally.
