Liberate Maple Grove


We can't afford to allow Governor Walz' illegal orders hurt Maple Grove families and businesses any longer. It's time to get our City Council to pass a resolution to open our town back up now!

To the Mayor & City Council,

WHEREAS, it is a human right to travel, conduct trade, assemble and do other things in order to live, and;

WHEREAS, the Declaration of Independence recognizes the right to pursue happiness, and;

WHEREAS, the purpose of the government is to protect people’s rights, and;

WHEREAS, our elected officials took an oath to uphold people’s constitutionally protected rights and are duty bound to abide by that oath, and;

WHEREAS, Governor Walz Emergency Executive Order 20-33 extending the ‘Stay Home’ order closing bars, restaurants and other places clearly violates people’s constitutionally protected rights and are blatantly unconstitutional, and;

WHEREAS, the 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution states, “No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty or property, without due process of law; nor deny any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws,”

THEREFORE, be it resolved, we the people of the City of Maple Grove, demand you make a motion for and vote yes to pass the Liberate Maple Grove Resolution that prevents city resources from enforcing Governor Walz' illegal shutdown orders.

    Suggest that the vulnerable & elderly shelter in place. Allow the rest of us to be FREE enough to return to normal life! We can handle it. Thank you.

    This shutdown is not a law. It is an Executive Order which is being held against our Constitutional Rights. Liberate MG.

    This is the most unconstitutional thing I have ever seen in my entire life.

    Comrade Walls is becoming a tyrant acting as though he controls the people. I’ve got news for you…it’s the other way around. Open our city/state or the people will do it for you. You’re already losing any respect the citizens of Minnesota had for you. Don’t let it get to the point that you wake the sleeping bear that is freedom loving Americans.
