Keep North Dakota Free

This petition is counter to a petition asking the Governor of North Dakota to issue a shelter-in-place order for the state of North Dakota.  Signers of this petition would like to see the Governor issue no such order.  Signers of this petition believe that a shelter-in-place order would be largely ineffective due to the number of exemptions that would issued.  
We also have a great concern for preserving individual liberty.  Any such order would be a violation of one's freedom of choice.  This goes against not just North Dakota values but American values.  Benjamin Franklin once said, "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
In this petition, we encourage Gov. Doug Burgum to continue to lead from the front, showing the nation that self responsibility, liberty, and discipline on an individual level is the most effective and efficient way to manage such a crises.
