Big Spring Mayor Says 'Alter or Abolish' the Government Over Biden Vaccine Mandates


BIG SPRING – The Mayor of Big Spring had some choice words for President Biden after the president announced vaccine mandates this week. Mayor Shannon Thomason called the mandates the 'Biden Vaccine Edict' and wrote in a social media post they are unconstitutional.  

Thomason also quoted the United States Constitution, "it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it (the government), and to institute new Government..."

Here is the social media post from the mayor: 

In short, not in Big Spring, Texas.

The City of Big Spring will NOT be requiring the COVID-19 vaccination of its employees. No department of the City will be enforcing or assisting in the enforcement of this unconstitutional act.

While we do encourage everyone to get vaccinated, IF THEY CHOOSE TO DO SO, we believe that each individual is perfectly capable of making responsible health choices for themselves and their families.

I would remind the President that we have a document that guarantees the liberty of Americans. It starts with “We The People”. Should he continue to ignore that document, there is another that is applicable.

THAT document says, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

I think you should you would probably be more comfortable where you’re at ;)

Good for him. Government mandates aren't laws. And you can't rule a free country by ordering people around like restaurant staff.

That would be DEMOCRATS who want to “fundamentally change” America in fact they’ve said it openly ;)

I can prove republicans are trying to overthrow the government, just read this article.

Can you even tell me what "fundamentally change" means?

Great question! You tell me since it’s those on YOUR SIDE who have repeatedly stated that is their goal ;)

Hey I get it! Considering the fact you demo libs think the constitution is a “living document” pretty much explains how you feel about it. 

Not that either one of you ever took an oath to “protect and defend” the constitution…and even if you did they were obviously just empty words just like all the other America hating demo libs whose stated desire is to “fundamentally change” our country ;)

I am glad you admit you are against something and you have no idea what it is, you are simply against it because (you say) democrats are for it. Sums up your party perfectly.

You’re right I don’t know what Biden meant when he said that…in fact I was the first one to pose that question ;)

If you don't know what it is and don't understand it then why are you against it and always saying that democrats are in the wrong for saying it?

As far as republicans are concerned it has to do with limiting the power of the federal government which, in fact, is the one of the primary tenets within the constitution.

It’s ok I wouldn’t expect someone like you to understand ;)

So it is ok when republicans attempt to amend the constitution outside of usual means, but when democrats propose something and you don't even know what it is, its not ok? 

You and your party make no sense whatsoever.

Hey go for it! But before I could offer up an opinion, then I would first have to know what Obama and his Mini Me Biden meant about the need to “fundamentally change America” I was hoping you could explain it to me ;)

I have no idea, I have never heard them say it, and you refuse to provide evidence of anything you say.

What do you mean “outside of usual means”? Republicans are following the guidelines according to the constitution!

With a method that has not been used since the 1780's. That is most certainly outside of usual means.

Protecting the nation from coronavirus is also following the constitution, but you are against that.

Not used because it’s not a simple process ;) Anyway I think I’m starting to understand what democrats mean by their stated goal to “fundamentally change America”. It’s about taking away our constitutional rights and giving MORE power and control over to the federal government something you no doubt support ;)

So you just accept something as arbitrary as that without question?

Sums up your party perfectly ;)

Nope, I never said I accepted anything, I have never even heard them say that, you refuse to prove your position.

You, however, have said you are against something that you don't understand and you can't explain what it means.

In that case you’re either naive, a liar or a moron. Whatever the case you’re on your own good luck in your search for the “truth”.

I'm not gonna get involved in the futile exchange that has preceded my post. I just saw one quote from Mayor Thomason that piqued my curiosity. I'd like to know if he believes that women of child bearing age are perfectly capable of making responsible health choices for themselves and their families. I'd bet he makes an exception for that.

At that point “responsible health choices” have more to do with just “themselves”. There’s, in fact, another human life involved…separate and unique.

Hey you are the one who engaged me not the other way around ;) 

It’s just sad to me that there are millions of people like you, who possess such a hate for conservatives, that all it takes is a couple of arbitrary words like “hope and change” and the need to “fundamentally change” our country in order to win your vote!

What you might need to come to terms with is the fact that at least half of Americans are hard working freedom loving people, who if need be, will fight to protect our God given rights ;)

Or not. It’s obvious you’re just a cheerleader for the left…minus the skirt and the fact that you’re some 40 years past your prime lol.
