Letter: End Cuomo’s dictatorship and let legislators step up

New York’s dictatorial Gov. Andrew Cuomo has finally gone beyond reason. He has arbitrarily decided to prevent New Yorkers from receiving the Covid-19 vaccine until he alone determines its safety. Who does he think he is!

He has, so far, stealthily relieved us of many freedoms: dictating the number of people allowed into churches, synagogues, restaurants, bars and even our own dining rooms.

He has closed theaters, stadiums, gyms and has prevented us from traveling from and back to New York without burdensome testing and quarantining and has placed severe limitations on our children’s education.

This is under the guise of forcing us to be healthy, which hasn’t worked too well for thousands of New Yorkers.

Where is the outrage? More importantly, where are our elected legislators? Cuomo has been issuing executive orders since March with no opposition from our well-paid legislators who haven’t missed a paycheck, contrary to many New York residents.

The most frightening thought is how easy it has been for one self-important man to quietly seize and limit our constitutional rights. Does that sound familiar to any history buffs?

Our governor has to shed his nanny uniform, take a deep breath, and allow our religious leaders to decide how not to kill off their congregants, business owners to keep their customers alive and heads of households to keep their families breathing. Most of us survived quite nicely before the governor showed up and without his interference, will probably continue to live without executive orders.

Gov. Cuomo, despite your self-aggrandizing best-selling book, you are not the smartest person in the room.
