Dear Gov. Herbert:

I’m amazed at the “no-maskers” who proclaim their “constitutional right” to not wear masks and basically to do anything they please in crowds and public places.

They apparently haven't actually read the Constitution of the United States, which begins, "We the People of the United States in order to form a more perfect Union, ... promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Unites States of America."

This is the foundation of our rule of law. The blessings of liberty and the general welfare certainly includes public health for all of us.

You are the highest official in Utah to uphold the Constitution and rule of law and to promote the general welfare of our people. If the constitutionally illiterate and selfish among us can't follow voluntary common-sense guidelines, then please issue the mask mandate for the general welfare of all of us, including them.

If all of us acted like responsible adults, laws would be less necessary. But, as some of us act like rebellious children, they must be controlled and taught correct principles.
