South Dakota's Republican governor, Kristi Noem, has vowed to reject any national lockdown orders that are currently being touted by White House wannabes and power-hungry Democrats.

Gov. Kristi Noem's office said Friday that it would not enforce a federal lockdown or mask mandate after one of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's advisers floated the measure.

The communications specialist for Noem, Ian Fury, said in a statement to the Sioux Falls Argus Leader:

"It’s a good day for freedom.

"Joe Biden realizes that the president doesn’t have the authority to institute a mask mandate.

"For that matter, neither does Governor Noem, which is why she has provided her citizens with the full scope of the science and trusted them to make the best decisions for themselves and their loved ones."

The response follows a statement from the former vice president's health chief that a Biden administration would enforce a mandatory national lockdown for "4-6 weeks" to combat the coronavirus, should the Democrat win the election.

Biden's COVID-19 advisor, Dr. Michael Osterholm, proposed a radical form of socialism to force the public to stay at home while shuttering businesses.

According to the health chief, the country's economy would not suffer as a result because the federal government could just "borrow" money to pay everybody's wages during the shutdowns.

Osterholm, who Biden has named to his coronavirus task force, claimed on Wednesday during an interview with Yahoo News that the United States could “drive the numbers down,” referring to coronavirus numbers if the country were to lock down for up to six weeks.

“We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers, for losses to small companies, to medium-sized companies, for city, states, county governments,” Osterholm said.

"We could do all that.

"If we did that, then we could lockdown for four to six weeks, and if we did that, we could drive the numbers down."

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves (R) has also vowed to "fight" any national lockdowns that are enforced by Democrat nominee Joe Biden, should he win the presidency.

On Thursday, Reeves declared that his state would not comply with a mandatory six-week national quarantine if Biden wins the presidential election.

“We’re not going to participate in a nationwide lockdown,” Reeves stated during a coronavirus update.

Reeves lampooned the idea of a lockdown as “totally and completely beyond reasonableness” and warned it would cause economic damage.

“That’s not the way the economy works,” the Republican governor said.
