The Republicans want to go against even the Republican governor who knew it was important to require masks. We went from the highest percentage of cases per capita in the country to among the lowest. So now these people who are supposed to be representing the people of North Dakota are spewing the same right wing spin about not wearing masks that Trump started. It is the same nonsense that has helped bring the death toll to half a million people in this country.
Our current legislators need to be replaced. Basically everything they’ve been trying to pass this session has been about them and their pet projects for themselves -- not we the people, those they are supposed to be serving. Apparently nobody has explained the job to these people. It is us they are supposed to be concerned about. Not their wants or pet peeves.
