ReOpenNC, a non partisan, unfunded grassroots organization, representing citizens of all political affiliations in the State of North Carolina are concerned and alarmed by the passing of mandates and local ordinances requiring individuals to wear a mask in an attempt to stop the spread of a virus.
ReOpenNC was founded upon the principles of the Constitution of the United States of America, and supports the rights of citizens to exercise personal freedom when making medical decisions. The Constitution of the United States of America does not guarantee you a virus free existence, it instead is designed to protect individuals from Government overreach.
Due to the unconstitutional actions taken by Gov. Roy Cooper by declaring a State of Emergency by Executive Order without the Concurrence of the Council of State, we will not support a mask mandate given under these circumstances. Anything done under this Executive Order is not Constitutional.
In addition, the mismanagement of the Covid-19 medical data by Roy Cooper and NCDHHS, by withholding data, skewing data, and propagating fear when we see stats continue to fall in regards to deaths in the state of NC (all well documented in the media), we do not believe the data statistically necessitates masking nor is there a scientific community concurrence on the effectiveness of masking.
We, the Citizens of the State of NC, of all political affiliations do not support mandatory masking in the State of NC by an unconstitutional mandate from the Gov. of the State of NC, or by County and City Governments under the guise of a one size fits all application of Covid-19 Data.
We sign this to show our support for people to make their own medical decisions. The mask must be a choice of the individual, and not violate the Constitution of the United States of America or the North Carolina Constitution. We also support businesses rights to not require masking in their businesses, but allow individuals to make that decision as mandating a mask could directly impact the right to the fruit of the labor guaranteed by the Constitution of NC.
