Former Arkansas Gov: Quarantine Measures Are 'Shredding The Constitution'
Mike Huckabee expresses concerns of freedoms being eroded
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee warned that coronavirus quarantine enforcement is violating Americans' constitutional freedoms.
Speaking on “Fox & Friends," the former Governor expressed concerns on how quarantine measures are affecting fundamental freedoms.
“We live in a democracy," he said.
"We live in a country where we elect our leaders to make decisions — we do not relegate, delegate, and give over those decisions to people, no matter how smart they are; we don’t give them to people who haven’t been elected by we the people," Huckabee added.
Huckabee’s remarks came after the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, admitted he “can’t guarantee" that it will be safe for physical votes in November due to COVID-19.
“I can’t guarantee it," Fauci said when asked about ballots.
President Donald Trump spoke out against the mail-in ballots as a clash in Wisconsin pitted Republicans in the state legislature and state Supreme Court against Democrats.
Huckabee said the decisions would be ultimately made by “elected officials” in the executive branch of the United States government.
He added that specific quarantine enforcement is threatening Americans' “civil liberties.”
“That is a concern to me that I don’t hear enough about — how we are shredding the Constitution by telling people such things as you can’t sit in a car by yourself, you’re going to get arrested, you can’t drive up to a church in your own vehicle, and the closest contact you have is with the police officer who comes and tells us you can’t do it."

Trump said that mail-in voting is “horrible. It’s corrupt."
Trump then suggested that “you get thousands and thousands of people sitting in someone's living room signing ballots all over the place…I think that mail-in voting is a terrible thing.”
“It shouldn’t be mail-in voting," Trump added.
The news comes as several George Soros funded groups push for the mail-in voting.
Neon Nettle reported Soros' organizations are on the front lines of a campaign to introduce a “vote by mail” system in the upcoming presidential election.
Hillary Clinton also pushed for mail voting warning the United States needs to “act now” to ensure citizens can “safely cast a ballot in November."
“We need to act now to make sure every citizen can safely cast a ballot in November."
