Ozark and Nixa recently implemented a mask mandate.
Brenden C.

I worked as a contractor for COVID-19. Letting citizens mandate their own health is a terrible idea. Look at our obesity rates, Americans cannot mandate their own health! Cases have gone up, and up. A mask mandate is needed. Our cases continue to rise higher, and higher.

Thank you for sharing Brenden.

there’s more to be concerned with than just death
Brenden C.
26:21
The main reason we are so divisive on a mask mandate is because of conspirators, who are allowed to openly gather on Facebook can post misinformation without any consequences whatsoever. Foreign countries, like Russia, can use this to their advantage to tear our democracy to shreds. We are weak, with the economy falling to its knees from a small pandemic.

to Mr Davidson: what role should government serve in his world?
Dave Gragg
31:46
Just think about how much better our lives would be if the feds hadn't imposed Civil Rights on the states.

Isn't the largest concern that Health insurance CEOs cause the red tap making it extremely difficult for providers to give treatment to their patients?
Bishop Davidson
32:35
Civil rights are rightfully a federal issue vis a vis the Constitutional amendment process.
Bishop Davidson
32:50
You’re presenting a straw man.

OTC's newest Education Center is in Republic too.
Bishop Davidson
33:45
Melissa, yes, that is a part of the problem.
Brenden C.
34:46
We cannot survive as a nation unless there is radical change implemented, nor republican nor democrat. Good ol' boy politics never existed.
Dave Gragg
35:01
Not in the least. You just said federal government shouldn't interfere in the states because it has a bad history. I presented a counter argument
Bishop Davidson
42:10
I should clarify: Federal overreach, which is when the feds act outside of their constitutional limits.
CARA GRIFFIN

Does anyone have any questions for Dave or BIshop?
CARA GRIFFIN
43:39
Feel free to share here and we will get those to our moderator.
Brenden C.
46:25
could you hear me just now?
CARA GRIFFIN
46:34
No.
Brenden C.
46:38
Ok, great
CARA GRIFFIN
46:41
No that I could tell :)

As the 130 District Rep, how would you stand up to the issue of a President having a secret bank account in China that the President did not disclose? Our current President pays $188,561 taxes in China and $750 in US taxes. We monitor our local school board president stricter than we are our USA commander in chief.
Brenden C.
51:27
Ironic. The president will never pay his taxes to the US, the very country he leads, but will always pay the Chinese their dues.

could banning abortions save one life? then you are for it. if a mask can save one life, are you for it? mr.Davidson, you want less government, why should the government be involved in a woman’s body?
Ann Elwell
52:23
Does being “pro-life” extend to other vulnerable persons? For example, those who are unable to afford adequate medical care?
CARA GRIFFIN
57:02
Great points and questions, I have relayed them to the moderator!
Brenden C.
58:08
I need to go.
Brenden C.
58:15
Sorry for leaving early!
Dave Gragg

A lot of cities are asking/requiring an internet tax for smaller businesses impacted by people utilizing Amazon, big retailers, free shipping , etc. What are their thoughts on imposing an internet tax in the 130th - are they in favor of trying to capture lost sales tax or is that imposing?
Lisa Langley
