Opinion: Time to fully open DMV in St. Lawrence County
To the Editor
Enough! As I drive around the liberal bastions of Canton and Potsdam I see the herds of sheep walking, jogging, and driving around town with their ridiculous masks on.While it drives me insane to see this it also saddens me to how far we have fallen as a country.
To let liars and frauds like Fauci and Cuomo lie to us and many have willingly submitted. While I try to ignore this and hope people will wake up I will no longer tolerate the extremes that the County Government is imposing.
By appointment only, if you can get in at all! Wear a mask whether you have a medical exemption or not! My worst experience was the other day at the DMV in Canton.
I waited in the parking lot for an hour trying to get through. Finally I was told I could come in. When I got to the door I was told I had to wear a mask, I had to sanitize, and I had to give my info for contact tracing.
Well no I don’t have to wear a mask. No, I’m not 8, you’re not my mommy and I don’t have to wash my hands before dinner. No government doesn’t get to track me. Then I was told to go to the drive through.
After 20 minutes in line I was told I couldn’t register at the window. I could only drop off plates, a job that a wooden box in the lobby usually does! Upon speaking with several county officials all I could get was “the Governor says.”
Frankly I don’t care what he says. What can he do if we ignore him? Take our lunch money? Fondle some of our secretaries? YOU LEGISLATORS were elected to protect us from Albany. The studies have proven that the masks prevent nothing, there is no transmission from surface contact, and if you’ve been vaccinated or had covid you can’t transmit it. So time is up, we pay too much for government as it is and I’ll be demand if I’m going to be restricted and have to make an appointment. Either open up, or shut down and cut my taxes! Frankly I don’t care which you do but you are not going to force me to pay $8,000.00 a year in property taxes then limit my access to those resources!
OPEN UP NOW! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
